“Ok place to stay, not memorable”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

I stayed here this past weekend for work and what little time I was around property I was not impressed. The rooms need a good update to them. My first room was 232 and just my luck was right beside the bar next door with a band. So don't even waste your time walking to that room get another one. I was obivously not the first person to ever request another room because the woman at the front desk was very nice and gave me a suite instead. The suite room was super huge and it was the first time in my life that the beds were in the wall which was kinda cool. The resort is just needs a good modern update all around. If you are looking for somewhere thats just ok and nothing special this is your place. The positive is there is some pretty cool things to do right there at the resort. They seem to have a nice dive shop and there is also a pirate ship close that takes you snorkeling. There is also many good restaurants close by as well. My favorite was Snappers restaurant which was right down the road about ten minutes south. I can't comment on the room rate because my company paid for the room.

This one was difficult to review because it was so unusual. I'll start with the positives. The hotel is in a nice location right on the water. The grounds have some beautiful tropical plants and seem to be well maintained. The wifi worked pretty well as did the air conditioning. The room was clean and really BIG! The cleaning staff was very helpful. They even let me use their cart to transport my luggage when the other luggage carts were being used. The balcony was nice and even though the hotel was full, it was quiet at night. The Murphy beds were very unique!
The negatives were that the rooms need to be updated. Everything in them seemed to be from the 1970's. I could accept that, as everything was functional, but the big negative for me was the slight smell of smoke in everything. We had a non-smoking room, but the smoke smell was there. That is the only reason that I probably would not stay at this hotel again--I am allergic to smoke. People who don't mind that smoke smell would probably like this hotel.

If you're looking for a relaxing vacation where you can get a good nights sleep you can forget about this place. If you're anywhere near Sharkeys Bar right next to the resort it's impossible. Teenage kids at 2 or 3 A.M. screaming at the top of their lungs carrying on like no one else matters. No one in the bar or hotel does anything to stop it. Apparently there's no security or management around to care or get it under control. It gets to the point where you want to throw patio furniture off the balcony and knock these idiots out with a table. I will not go back to this place ever again.

Room Tip: Not at this place!

The front desk people were great. Our room was clean, the view spectacular!
The resort is a little hard to find, but worth it. I would recommend the Marina Del Mar to anyone needing a place to stay in Key Largo.

Upon our arrival we were quoted one rate & charge nearly double. Room did not have any carpet, floor was cold & slippery. Ants were in bathroom. Crabby front desk.clerk. Poor toilet facilities (had to flush multiple times). Torn screens, poor parking spots, poor lighting. Would not stay or suggest to anyone, EVER.

Room Tip: Holiday Inn or Marriot are better choices

Just finished a 3 day dive and stay package. I found the room
very clean and service was good. At times there is a cranky
front desk person but for the most part they are friendly. The
king bed was comfortable and linens fresh and soft.

I would recommend this hotel for divers as it right next to
ocean divers. Even got an upgrade since they were not
busy. I didn't even ask, it was automatic. I am a repeat
customer though.

But if you want a good breakfast go to Sharkeys next door.
Not much to offer but basic continental at the hotel

Room Tip: I like the 2nd floor marina view.

Purchased a divers package that included diving with Ocean Divers and accommodations at Marina Del Mar. The hotel itself is an older hotel, yet the room was clean, the location perfect for diving in the Key Largo area because it's on the water. It was also a perfect (right next door) to Ocean Divers - so for the package deal it made sense. Hotel staff was very friendly, very helpful. Find them both at mile marker 100 in Key Largo.

Note: The beds were 'full' not real queen size.
