A Florida Keys favorite beloved by beach-lovers and boaters, the oceanfront Postcard Inn Beach Resort and Marina at Holiday Isle (or PCI for short) in Islamorada is located minutes from Key Largo and a short drive from Fort Lauderdale/Miami and Key West. Newly renovated, this iconic resort blends the retro, throwback atmosphere of a nostalgic American beach vacation with modern amenities like WiFi, iPod docks and flat-screen televisions. 

For generations, travelers have flocked to our idyllic resort to relax, rest and recharge -- gathering in the storied Tiki Bar to sip the original Rum Runner cocktail, savoring fresh-off-the-boat seafood and soaking up the warm Florida sunshine. Decade after decade, the Postcard Inn Beach Resort and Marina has delighted visitors with its laid-back, low-key vibe and boathouse chic style. Soon, new bathrooms, fresh new furniture, and upgrades to our bars, restaurants and parking outdoor swimming pool will add just a few more reasons to make PCI your Florida Keys home base.

Our wedding at The Postcard Inn was literally "picture perfect"! I worked closely with Amanda who was the hotel event coordinator. She was absolutely amazing! Amanda always responded in a timely manner and made the whole process very easy. Once we arrived, we were greeted by an amazing staff who were all very welcoming. While staying at the Postcard Inn guests had access to paddle boards, kayaks and several bars and restaurants. Our actual ceremony and reception were held at celebration island and tiki. The views were breath taking! I couldn't believe how beautiful everything turned out. All of our guests are still talking about how they attended the more beautiful wedding ever! I highly recommend the Postcard Inn!!

Our wedding was absolutely beautiful. We had a great experience all around at the Postcard Inn. Even though we planned an intimate wedding, there were so many details, it started to get overwhelming. But Amanda and her team made it SO EASY. They kept in constant communication with our wedding planner and I. We held our ceremony was on rum runners beach following a private dinner on celebration island. The entire night was stunning. The food, drinks were so delicious! The staff was helpful and always one step ahead of the game. Our guests absolutely loved the staff. They were involved with our guests and had a great time. It was comforting to see they were enjoying themselves just as much as we were. I could not have asked for anything more. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect! Not only did we enjoy our wedding, we enjoyed our entire stay! We arrived a couple days before the wedding. All of our rooms were incredible with amazing views. Before the big day, we had the opportunity to go explore on the resort kayaks and chill by the bars. They had it all! Thank you!!!

We just got married at this venue. We cannot ask for a better place for our big day. Thank you Samantha for all your help and the employees. Everyone was great, and our guests had a great time. This is a magical place to celebrate such an important life event.

My husband and I recently had our wedding at Postcard Inn. With the threat of Hurricane Matthew off the coast of Florida we were horrified that the wedding may not happen. Samantha Klipp and Leanne (Pelican Cove) were the most amazing to my husband, myself, and my guest. They went above and beyond to my make our day happen and make it special. They spent time helping us come up with back up plans and even just giving us positive thoughts. With so much stress because go this hurricane the day of the wedding was PERFECT!!!! The staff was so accommodating and they made our dream happen. We booked another week stay for our one year anniversary and we will be there every year because this place is amazing !!!!!! Thank you Postcard and Pelican Love The Jansch's :)

We got married on Sept 24, 2016, and could not have asked for a better location! PCI is an oasis in the Keys - many of our guests (50 total) had never been to the Keys, and PCI gave them an amazing impression of it. The hotel itself is very recently renovated, so the rooms feel new and clean, the beds are insanely comfortable. The suites were perfect for the wedding party to get ready as well. Amy, the event coordinator, did an incredible job helping us plan and making sure that everything went smoothly. We met her once 6 months before the wedding, but not again until the day before the wedding - she made it easy to do everything from afar. She worked with us to plan the details of the day, and also contacted all our vendors the Friday before to confirm everything. We were concerned about rain (it was hurricane season in FL!), and she helped us put together contingency plans. PCI did a great job keeping the wedding private - while it is in a resort and other hotel guests could've wandered through, they kept it secluded and even yelled at kayakers to move out of the background of wedding photos :). We got married on Rum Runner's Beach, which is a gorgeous, open beach with lots of palm trees to frame the wedding. The reception was in the Beach Pavilion less than 100 feet. The lights outside the pavilion made the whole beach beautiful at night as well. The food was delicious, and the catering staff were amazing. Lionel, the head caterer, was incredibly helpful with making sure everything was set up exactly as we wanted and the buffet was well-stocked. My biggest regret with food is that I only got to go through the buffet once. We also had breakfast in the Horizon Room on the top floor of PCI the morning after the wedding, which was a great way to spend a little more time with everyone. It's one of the tallest buildings in Islamorada, so the views are incredible in every direction. Amazing experience overall, and I'd highly recommend Postcard Inn!

We are so happy that we chose Postcard Inn for our wedding venue! First off, we started working with Wendy(who is no longer there) and she was awesome. Very helpful and always responsive. Then we were paired with Samantha, who is AMAZING! Samantha was with us every step of the way(literally she drove me in a golf cart and walked me and my dad up to the entrance of my wedding!) Samantha made sure that all of the boxes were checked and we felt like the wedding was a breeze. The food was great, everyone really loved the chicken and the mahi mahi, the desserts were awesome and the appetizers were excellent. Our guests loved the all inclusive feel of the resort. The only suggestion they had was they wish there was a continental breakfast. There is a Starbucks within walking distance though so it makes it so easy for you! We didn't get to use the Tiki Bar but the Raw Bar was great. The water sports were a big hit with our family and friends. Strongly recommend if you are looking for an all inclusive deal for your venue. We will return for a trip in the future!

Where do I start with the postcard inn? We booked our wedding about eight months in advance. Since the start of booking we had three different wedding planners who all ended up forgetting very important details. being asked what the grooms name is two weeks before the start of the ceremony is frightening for any couple. The location was beautiful. The staff who served us was awesome and our guests loved the food. But the planning was another story. The wedding planner who helped us the day of our wedding must of had more important things to do because she left before the cake was even brought out. Without her being there the staff was lost with the process of when we should cut the cake. Time passed and the cake collapsed, causing our porcelain cake toppers to fall to the ground and break. Very unprofessional and disappointing to us. The view was great. The weather turned out great. The bartenders and servers were super friendly. But the planners, nope they failed us. We must not have been too important to them with only 35 guests.

Working with the sales team at PCI was extremely frustrating. We worked with three different women over the year we spent planning the wedding. They were unresponsive at times and did not pay attention to detail. The wedding coordinator from the resort left before the cut was cake and that caused some confusion with the staff. However, the wait staff was very professional and friendly. Overall, your wedding will be beautiful because the grounds at PCI are breathtaking but you will be extremely frustrated working with the sales staff.

The food at both the reception and day after brunch was absolutely amazing. I am not exaggerating when I say every single guest complimented us on the food and told us it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. In addition to how delicious the food tasted, the wait staff was equally as good and very attentive. We picked the Post Card Inn initially because of the location of the ceremony. It is absolutely beautiful and a large space to have the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. We originally signed the contract with Wendy who made certain commitments that were not met (discussed later). She left before our wedding and was then transferred to Sam who was helpful and responded to my calls and texts in a timely manner most of the time. She worked well with my wedding planner in keeping everything organized and on time the day of the wedding. We knew that PCI was undergoing construction and would be fine, the suite I booked ended up not completed and had to be downgraded, and the Tiki Bar wasnt done either. The room was sufficient, but, would have much preferred the original larger suite that I wanted. Having our after parties at the raw bar instead was ok but it that closed much earlier (midnight) than we were told, totally killing the party both Friday and Saturday nights. If we know this we could have at least brought more liquor or something for our guests. These issues could have been handled much better both during the sales process and afterwards on-site as new things came up. The completed renovations were very nice and made PCI a more desirable place to stay in Islamorada. There were a lot of activities for people to do and all of our out of town guests had a great time and loved the property. The front desk staff were pretty bad for a hotel, even a keys hotel. Still happy we did the wedding here as the big things went right.

We had a great experience all around with Postcard Inn. We did an intimate wedding and it was beautiful. They took care of everything. And our overall stay was great, service at the resort and at the Shulas2 restaurant was great as well! We did dinner there after the ceremony and on other days and they were very accommodating!

I had my wedding at the PCI on August 9, 2015 and it was SO perfect! Everything came along together perfectly. Wendy is the best. I emailed her basically up to the day of the wedding and she did everything I had asked. Food was delicious and the cake was very good as well. My aunt told me she went around eating people's cakes because it was so good. The best part of having our wedding at the PCI was having all our friends and family there before the wedding, spending time with each other and catching up. The water sports were fun as well. Everything was neat and professional. Nothing bad to say about the PCI.

Pros: - Wonderful place for your guests to have a vacation experience. Jet skis, Boat rentals, kayacking, and fun activties - Different areas of the venue allow you to have different functions onsite Cons: - It is HOT in the summer. We scoped out a wedding in July one year prior to our wedding, and felt the breeze was wonderful on the Rum Runners beach. HOWEVER, under the pavilion it is a hot sweaty mess! There are shrubs blocking the breeze into the pavilion. There are zero fans circulating air. Our photos have everyone drenched in sweat. - The front desk is VERY disorganized. We were charged $4 a welcome bag to have them given out to our guests, and we had over 10 bags not given out to guests. If you are going to charge an absurd fee to hand a bag to a guest at check in, please do it the right way. Also, we had asked for the Master Suite to get ready in. Granted, there was no guarantee that the guests would leave prior to 11am the day of my wedding. We checked with Wendy and the front desk several times, so that the minute the guests left, we would be notified and the room would be cleaned immediately. Day of the wedding, it's 11am and we hear from no one. I go to the front desk, and they say the guests are still there. We go upstairs to the room, and see the cleaning staff. No communication with the front desk. The cleaning crew said it would take at least 2 hours. It took my maid of honor to sweet talk the cleaning crew to get me in. Wendy did not help with this matter. - Your day of wedding planner is a joke. The only thing she does is take you down in a golf cart, and keep timing with dinner, Hire someone else or be very organized. Have someone do your decor day of. - Wendy was not very flexible with timing, decor, etc. I had to argue to get the prices and timing I wanted. - You have to clean up your decorations the night of the wedding. - The onsite bar wanted to close at 11pm night of the wedding, So much for an after party option on site.
