Went already. The food in Mams was actually pretty tasty. Definitely not upper scale though and it feels like your sitting in a front yard in front of a small cottage which is the kitchen. Things may get overwhelming as it's one older lady cooking, serving, cleaning, and taking money all at once. But they do close too early. I think she closes at 6, which makes it perfect for lunches but not so perfect for supper. So I took along pomegranate frozen meals for supper which was great. (One note: Not all the rolls are Pas Yisroel.)

Some other great things to explore are the Hemingway house and truman's house. There's also the closest point to Cuba which is a great photop in a nice walking area.

I stayed twice at the Hyatt resort and spa. Loved it. Great location and plenty to do there as well such as the beautiful sunset sail boat cruise, jet skiing, bike and moped rentals. And their spa is amazing as well.

Rooms are nice and roomy. This Hyatt is the highest category in the state of Florida so I think it's definitely worth the signup nights.

We're going to be in KW during the first week of January 2015. I've never heard of Ron's Shish Kabobs; is it a fast food, sit down or take-out place? I assume it's different than Mam's which we've enjoyed before.

I just got off phone with HGP rep who told me that sign up nights/hgp points cant be redeemed at residence clubs. How did you pull that off?

Whatever it is, I do not believe it exists.  It's not listed on the Chabad Keys site, and the phone number under that name on Yelp is a disconnected number..
