What a beautiful relaxing beach hotel. We stayed in an ocean view room and watched the sunrise every morning from the chairs outside our room. The staff was amazing and the rooms lovely. The owners take pride in seeing to every need such as free iced bottled water by the pool, lounge chairs in two heights, toys for the pool,...

This is a newly renovated, beautifully decorated and very clean resort. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. We upgraded to a ocean view room and it was worth it. The pool and sauna are salt water and well looked after. It was a pleasure to stay here and would highly recommend.

I loved everything about this hotel, except that the beds were not very comfortable. Loved all the amenities and the beach area. The beach chairs were so nice and everything was very clean. I would definitely recommend getting an ocean view room. We were on the other side, but it is a very short walk around the hotel to the...

We stayed here two nights, including New Years Eve. It's a great location, and the grounds are awesome. We loved sitting in the room, oceanview, enjoying the breeze and hearing the crashing waves. Our room (a suite) was pricey, but large and lovely. Despite what recent reviews said, we weren't bothered by kids or noise. We had a great experience...

Stayed at Glunz for the first time in Dec 2016. We we're looking for a place to stop on the way from Miami to Key West.

The property is perfectly located in Key Colony Beach, just minutes from Hwy 1 but secluded from the busier commercial areas of Marathon. We would not visit again during a holiday period due to behavior of children. Pros - Very clean and updated suite. Good value for the location and room size.

Thank you so much for your comments towards the Glunz Resort. We are a welcoming family resort that enjoy watching the joys of children having fun in the sun and parents relaxing. However, at times we can be busier during the holidays as it's an escape time for our larger family groups. We certainly hope that you would try us...

Key Colony is definitely the place to set up in the Keys. Resort was nicely located with easy access to amenities in Marathon without the busyness. Rooms were very spacious with great appliances. Every room has beautiful view of the ocean. Nice sandy beach and clean pools.
