Banana Bay Resort is a nicely updated facility in a great Middle Keys location. I bought this stay as my very first Groupon for a hotel stay & was very pleased with the choice.
Guests can sit outside near the dock at night & watch the beautiful skies - I saw more shooting stars than I had seen in years! Marathon is a quiet town without the loud crowds in Key West, so I would recommend it for those of us that enjoy the quiet, but not for the partying crowd.
We took a snorkeling trip with Tilden's Dive center right next door that was excellent & the hotel is also very close to the Turtle Hospital & lots of good restaurants - Brutus Seafood & Keys Fisheries were our favorites for fresh local fare.
The drink selection at the tiki bar could certainly use an update - very 80's selection of mass produced beer when they are local micro breweries I would have loved to try. The room doors are also not flush, so any noise in the hallways is very obvious in the rooms, but most of the other guests were respectful during our stay.More
