This place was great for the fishers in our family as well as for the lay-out-by-the-beach-and-read-a-good-book familiy members (me!) The rooms are a great size and the place is very clean and well layed out. We had access to the bay and ocean. The staff are wonderful and so helpful. We are definately making a return to this place.

Very comfortable place, we went to the keys for vacation and had an awesome time. Our boat was right outside of our door, my husband loved that feature because he is a stickler for checking his boat during the night. The rooms were nicely set up and not muggy and stinky like a lot of places in the keys. My... More

The rooms are large, very clean and well layed out and the... More

We went to the Keys for Christmas and had a lovely visit! We traveled with our daughter and her boyfriend and stayed 3 nights at the Royal Hawaian. Laura and Phil, the live-in hosts, were awesome...they told us about a beach close by that we could go to that allowed dogs! They were not only helpful to us, but also... More

Nice place, Laura & Phil are just great hosts. Fishing right out your door, park the boat right next to room. Pool was wonderful, very relaxing. Some of the old Florida charm exists here at the Royal Hawaiian, We had a wonderful time, this was our second visit and can't wait til next time.

Comfortable, reasonably priced rooms with boat 10 feet from the back door in a perfect spot with direct access to Vaca Cut connecting the Atlantic & Gulf. Allows easy access for fishing / diving either location depending on the weather. Phil & Laura are outstanding hosts, & go way above & beyond to help in any way they can. Feels... More

nice place, nice pool, friendly staff. I found this place on Tripadvisor and booked 2 nights. There is not a lot to do in Marathon but we spent one day and evening in Key West and that made the trip. it was about 1.5 hour drive I would recommend this place
