Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos and his girlfriend, Lauren Sanchez, chose the Florida Keys — specifically Key West — as a vacation spot recently.

The couple stayed at The The Marquesa Hotel, 600 Fleming St., where a basic room with a queen-size bed starts at $250 per night and suites start at $325 per night, and they also ate at the hotel’s restaurant, a local source said.

The CEO who reinvented online shopping and created fast shipping even hit a real store while in town.

Bezos and Sanchez were spotted together on May 10 at the Ocean Key Resort and Spa, at the tip of Duval Street

They were shopping at the resort’s Madda Fella Store and the Ocean Key Boutique, a source said.

Jeff Bezos purchased a Madda Fella Light Weight Ernest Linen Shirt — in the color island coral and a size small — that his girlfriend Lauren Sanchez suggested.

The shirt is named after legendary author Ernest Hemingway, whose Key West home is now a museum.

Additionally, Lauren purchased a jumpsuit and sportsman’s cap in navy from the Ocean Key Boutique.

Amazon.com Inc.’s profits last year exceeded $10 billion, more than tripling net income from the previous year, The Associated Press reported in April.

Bezos also owns The Washington Post.
