9 of us shared 2 rooms here during the low season, and paid a very low price per head. The rooms are actually "apartments" (there are long-term residents here), so there's a kitchenette and dining table. The odd thing was that the bedroom doors were missing, presumably to accommodate the king size beds, of which there were 2, which was... More

Was exactly what we needed. Two adults, two children. First impression the front desk service was fantastic thanks to FRANCESCA. She was very accomodating and helpful concerning places to visit and eat. Thanks to her directions when we left the hotel to check out the beach behind the hotel, all we did was make a right and follow the road... More

We had a very nice stay there. The room was very clean, the pool was sparkling and the staff was very helpful and friendly. The mattresses were not good and the pillows felt like they were filled with rocks.The very pretty but unnecessary bed spread was on the bed and had to be removed immediately. There was a full kitchen... More

We had reservations at Sombrero Resort and Marina, we had arrived a day earlier and I had called to see if we could stay that night and the person who answered the phone said that they were closing soon and that she would not wait for us to get there. The lady that I talked to was very rude so... More

We come to Marathon once a year and usually stay here. This year the restaurant and the Tiki Bars where both closed causing us to go elsewhere having to pay for cab's etc. We will not stay here again with no Tiki Bar or Restaurant! Also very minimal kitchen utensils available for use. Only enough coffee condiments for one! The... More

Wasn't the worse place, but not high on our list. No internet service, elevator worked at times. When booking did not say anything about all of their rules you have to sign at check in. Room was ok. Parking lot flooded wasn't allowed to park near building. Not at all as listed on their website. Outdated.

Good luck with late check in... Number on the door connected us with an intoxicated individual who would curse you out everytime we were able to get through. We had called ahead as well for late check in and was told it would be "no problem". Worst hotel experience EVER. Avoid at all costs. We are now stuck here with... More

This was our first visit to Marathon and sombrero resort. We arrived early and check in was fast and easy. We had covered parking just under our room, with a elevator near by. We stayed on the top, 4th level. Had a beautiful view of the bay in the front and poolside on the patio off our bedroom. Nice kitchen... More

Too bad this place, in such a great location, is in such poor condition. Couches have holes, blue carpets are stained and roaches crawling out in the evening on carpet floor, cigarette buds littered the staircase. Stayed there on the fourth of July weekend. Hotel guest at the pool were loud, unruly and obnoxious. Food, bottles, paper plates and cups... More
