Banana bay was ok, not at all what we were expecting. It's a hotel not a resort. The rooms were clean and newly renovated. There was also a decent sized pool but the place was older and very small. The pool was almost too deep for my 5 year old alevem at its most shallow spot. It reminded me of...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 17 February 2017

This was my second stay and each time it was perfect. Rooms are updated and very clean. Staff was happy to help me with anything I needed. I love the area by the water, great place to unwind and enjoy the quiet.

The motel was designed good, and spacious. It has a ceiling fan that a lot of motels don't have it. that is good! There has no microwave in our room and refrigerator isn't cool enough which has no temperature control. Therefore I couldn't refrigerated my water or fruit! The reason I gave it low rate because the mattress was too...

We are sorry to hear that the Visitors Center was not clear in defining our rates and Fees, as we do make it clear upon check in so that there are no surprises. We do not promote having Microwaves in our rooms so I do not know why there was a surprise there. We often get compliments on our Bedding...

Just returned from a 3 day trip to the Florida Keys and stayed at our favorite spot Banana Bay. We started going there 20 years ago on our first trip to the Keys. Back then it was privately owned and we had the pleasure of meeting the owner. He also owned Banana Bay in Key West....stayed there once. It has...

Thank you for your Review and while the old is gone, the new & updated is still going to keep the "Keys feel". You will see that on your 21st visit with us, as we open the Sand Bar on the water where you will be able to get your favorite Frozen drink or cold beverage listening to Live Music...

This spot has the bones to be a winner: good location, nice layout (pool and ocean access - although not for swimming) and good sized rooms. Unfortunately, the facilities are in need of maintenance and updating. Caulking was separating from our bathroom counter. Unpainted gyprock was exposed where a mirror had been replaced. It is hard to understand how there...

We have noted your comments and although we are continually updating our rooms, they were completely renovated over a year ago. Due to our occupancy we have to get in the rooms to keep up with the Maintenance and if you wouldn't mind reaching out to me at 305-743-3500, I would like to know the room number you are referring...

This was a great stopping point on our way to Key West. The air conditioning was great the room was clean and the electronics were updated. The pool looks very nice and it was a dock with a bar area where you could watch the sunset. You could also walk next-door to a bar and restaurant that had live country...

We stayed there for 2 nights, very clean rooms and very nice ocean view. The pool was ok the tiki bar was out and need repairs. Staff was friendly and helpful. At night there is nothing to do at marathon except of going out and dine early since everything closes early.

Thank you for your Review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We have a new Bar opening down by the water very soon for guests to enjoy! The Keys in general are not a "Late Night" venue as most just enjoy the relaxing time and laid back feel we have down here. However, we do have...

Stayed in a remodeled room which was nice and comfortable. They are starting to fix up this resort. The office staff was great. Only dislike was the marina area. There was really no walk in access to the water--like a sandy beach entrance. This would be a great place if you enjoy boating. There is no restaurant on the premises....

Thank you for your Review. Actually ALL of our Rooms are renovated & look great! We do not have a beach as you would find in Miami but the Keys in general do not have this as the Keys are made up of coral rock. Any that you do find in the Keys are man made. We do not have...
