Stayed here on a bike ride to key west. Rooms in great shape with modern clean fixtures. The grounds had some work in progress but the pool was also clean and refreshing. Overall a very pleasant stay.

Hi PB-Erik Thanks for the great review, I am glad you enjoyed the pool after a bike ride, we are still working on the landscaping, its a large property about 10 acres so it keeps us busy just keeping it clean for the trees, but that is what sets us apart from other properties in the keys.

Overall stay was a 10. Pool area large well laid out pool beautiful. Lonts of noisy children for hours so we were not able to enjoy the pool and left in a few minutes. Children remand for 6 hours allways noisy, but that's not the fault of the Banana Bay Staff

Rooms have just been redone and very nice. Must ask and pay extra for view room - but worth it. Marathon is the start of the seven mile bridge and within an hour of KeyWest.You can see most Everything in KeyWest in a day.

Room was very nice, beautiful view of the marina. Pool area still needs a lot of work, but if it's redone as nicely as the rooms it will be great. Staff was pleasant and very helpful. We enjoyed our stay in Marathon.
