We stayed here a couple of years ago with no issues. This go round, different story. The facility is falling apart, though they have construction going on. Which is a plus. The pool was nice, the bar had a pleasant tender. The room smelled. There were bed bugs. The ac was cold, but looked moldy. When I reported this to... More

We upgraded our one night stay from a single bedroom to a bedroom with a kitchen and living room. All of which were OK. This location is very convenient to the Marathon area. Too bad it wasn't in better shape! The worst point was a loud window A/C unit in the bedroom which cycled continuously. It made for a constant... More

I feel it is appropriate to start with something nice. Hotel has a beautiful pool and tiki bar. Hotel room was disgusting. Smell of urine permeated everything. Shuddered when thought of using dishes. Child refused to use anything provided by hotel. Worst experience ever

My family and I stayed there. You get what you pay for. The area is very quiet and almost no shopping. Good for nature activities though. The room is old but clean. Ours had a small kitchen. Very few towels, we're only a family of three a didn't have enough. Also there were two doors into the neighboring room which... More

Bathroom very clean and kitchen area clean. Not much for drinking glasses or dishes. I just bought paper products at publix... More

The Lobby is a lovely area and the front desk Staff are very pleasant and professional but it all changes when you walk out the door. The grounds are dirty and in disrepair, only one elevator works and that malfunctions occasionaly. The Rooms are not only out dated but dirty. There is NO night time security and the inroom phones...

This is the loudest and most disruptive "resort" I've ever been to. This morning my family and I got woken up by extremely loud men right underneath our room. They not only were yelling at each other, they were workers of Sombrero Resort. They also started up the LOUDEST gas powered pressure washer at 7am right under my bed. I... More

One great thing about this place- The nicest check in staff I have ever experienced in Marathon! Bartender by the pool wonderful!!! stellar staff. Downside, rooms are antiquated, we had a suite that had no light over the dining room table, but had a sconce light in the hallway about an inch from the ceiling. Also, the "wall unit air... More

Upon arrival no toilet paper, elevator certificate expired in 2008. Elevator smelled of rotten fish. The room,s a/c shade room smell. Also a/c looks like it's going to fall and hurt someone because it's so rotted. They actually cut sponge in half to save cost! Carpet looked as if a triple homicide took place. It's was so stained you didn't... More
