West Martello Tower Reviews & Ratings
Best Wedding place! We didnt want a beach wedding and this place is basically on the beach. We got married in at most beautiful botanical gardens at the gazebo with the ocean behind us. The views are amazing. I couldn't have picked a better place. It was like having a beach wedding without all that sand that I didn't want but with the ocean. We got married June 16, 2019 on Fathers Day. I highly recommend this if you don't want a beach wedding but would like a botanical garden wedding with a ocean view.
Beautiful job especially after all the hurricane damage previously. Love the fact that it's taken care of by volunteers from the community!! And it was free...we left a donation for them.
This was a place my mom picked out on a flyer and wanted to go. They call her the plant lady at work. It was nice to see how they had worked with the remains of the fort, you could see the structure from a different perspective. Mom loved to see all the plants grown up as big as a person or larger that she just has in little pots at home. Very vibrant colors. Butterflies were hopping around the butterfly garden. There were nice places to sit and relax.
We always enjoy visiting the botanical gardens. It is full of beautiful flowers and is right by the ocean.
One of my favorites in Key West I like to stop here after the long drive down the Keys for a little R&R. There's no charge but they do accept donations which I highly suggest. There are benches and places to stop and reflect on the wonderful breeze that comes off the ocean especially up by the Gazebo and ocean front area. There are so many cute quiet places here. The seating by the small pond is very stress relieving too. Absolutely a must here in Key West.
