This was our first time staying at a BlueGreen facility and it has set a high standard for the rest of them! From the moment we walked in the staff, particularly Patricia, was phenomenal! Each hotel employee welcomed us and seemed incredibly excited to have us at their location. We were early to check in and asked if we could... More

Room was clean - more than enough towels. Staff was very courteous and helpful. There was only one thing that could be changed was that the air conditioner could have been lowered below 75. We had to purchase a fan just to keep it cooler at night. Room 320 has the best view by far! The bed could have been... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in early April. We had a one bedroom unit. We would have liked a water view, but they are limited since the facility is fairly small. We didn't really mind since we didn't spend too much time in the room. The bed was comfortable and the unit was clean. It was very quiet. We... More

We stayed at The Hammocks at Marathon recently and actually had to leave a day early due to the poor quality of the mattresses. The staff was pleasant, and they actually swapped the mattress for another. Unfortunately, that mattress was equally uncomfortable. We could actually feel the individual springs. If you decide to go there, bring your own air mattress.

The hotel is small; but, very clean. We stayed in a one bedroom villa with a kitchen and it was very roomy. Overall, the hotel needs some TLC and updating. It is circa 1994. Pool chair are stained and worn. Hotel furniture is stained as well as worn. Nothing is horrible; just don't expect Big Cedar luxury because it's not... More

Stayed here for the first time for two nights and were overall pleased with our stay. Front desk staff very friendly and informative. Studio room had two beds and plenty of space. The air conditioner was a bit off; quite loud and didn't keep the temp regulated very well. Found ice machine only on bottom floor, not every floor as... More

This is one of our favorite Bluegreen properties to visit. It is located on the Gulf and is very quiet. There is a wonderful pool, hot tub and tiki bar adjacent to the pool. You can drive to Key West, Pigeon Key or visit the Turtle Hospital or Dolphin Research Center. You can find all kinds of water activities right... More

We went to the Hammocks for Spring Break, taking one 15 year old and two 17 year olds. The hotel is wonderful. We sat with the concierge and he told us all about the area, in a quick and efficient manner. We learned about the Marathon Lady for fishing and Porkys for lunch. This is a a small time share...

Went on 3 scuba diving boat trips while staying here which was main purpose of our vacation. Also took day trips to Key Largo & Key West. Nice scenery. Do not expect a beach at Hammocks.

We usually go every spring, but decided to go in October for fantasy fest. Resort is always the best when it comes to customer service, great location, beautiful scenery and excellent amenities. Our favorite vacation location.
