2 night getaway for husband's birthday. The $1.00 B-Celebrated birthday deal is one that I hope to use again come MY birthday in October! Can't beat it. Marina/gulf view King room was huge and clean and freshly painted & tiled. Great beach art everywhere. LOVED the shower, drawers in the bathroom (I can't stand leaving toiletries all over the place)....

Gorgeous location and close to everything. The birthday $1 deal was one that cannot be beat! The room was huge and brand new. Loved it! I've already recommended Banana Bay to others who are already planning their vacation to the keys.

Took my son and his friend to the Keys for a couple days. I decided to stay the first day in Marathon because it was 3/4 of the way to Key West for us. I found Banana Bay Resort through Groupon, but the Florida resident rate was an even better deal. We arrived before our room was ready but were...

Each year my beautiful girlfriend and our best friends make a trip tothe keys and this time was the most memorable. The excellent experience was due in great part to Sheneka the front desk agent at Banana bay in Marathon. She was knowledgeable and personable which ranks high in my list for making a great trip. Even with the phone...

I go down to marathon often. This was my first time at the banana bay. It was beyond my expectations. My nephew fished in the back and caught several fish. He loved it. The room was nice/clean. The beds were comfy. I recommend the banana bay resort

My mother and I stayed here for two days. We loved the updated rooms, the hospitable staff, the pool, beach and marina area and everything else about the place except the mosquitoes. There was always a mosquito inside our room from the moment we stepped foot inside. As soon as we would kill one, another would appear. We searched everywhere...

Hi nmugure Thank you for the great review, I do apologize for the mosquito's, the City treats for them after a rain to keep the population down, I have requested they come through the property to assist with the issue.

Hubby and I wanted to escape for a weekend. Banana Bay was the only hotel that had rooms available for a reasonable rate. Googled it and read T.A. reviews and being that it was recently remodeled, we decided to book. Lobby was beautifully renovated; however, the lobby bathrooms looked original. The phrase "lipstick on a pig" came to mind and...

My sleep would have been better if there weren't so many noisy people in the hallways. The bed was very comfortable - people were what kept me up. They need to somehow seal the doors to each room for quietness.
