After leaving our 3 night stay at Banana bay, the hotel left me without much feeling. I didnt really dislike or like it, it was simply an average resort in the Keys. The check-in process was very easy, but they refused to upgrade me even though there were plenty of rooms available. In fact she was kinda snippy about it, as if to say " how dare you ask for an upgrade?". The rooms was large, but our non-smoking room reaked of smoke. Other then that the rooms were clean but somewhat bland. The view from our balcony was almost non-existent, it looked right into some trees and then into the parking lot. The pool was OK, it had a nice little bar area with friendly bartenders and some decent poolside snacks. The breakfast buffet was a real downer and truley laughable. Dont expect any kind of meal at all. They have a man made beach which isnt really a beach, more like a rocks with a cutout sitting area. They did tell you that before you came though, I just thought it would be a litte nicer then it was. I did like the tiki bar down near the water, it was a fun place to have some drinks at the end of the day and watch a sunset. All in all the Banana Bay Resort is fine for most people, the prices are reasonable. Just dont go expecting luxury anything like that of a Hyatt or Sherton. If you keep that in mind you will probably be somewhat pleased with this resort.
