The Malyn is a clean, very nice place to stay at Treasure Island.
Only a 5 min walk to the beach, bars, restaurants. Very close to the Thunderbird and Bilmar Hotels.
Accomodation is fairly basic but clean. All things needed such as washing up liquid, bin bags etc provided.
Outdoor pool is lovely and warm and the outside facilities are great. Plenty of seating and the cabana makes a good place to eat with friends especially if the weather is poor.
Only down side for the 4 days we were there and a warning to others, The Malyn rents out a lot of its rooms during certain weekends throughout the year to large parties. At least 30 Americans (adults & kids) arrived in one large works party and basically over ran the place. Drinking beer in the pool, rubbish left all over the cabana and once drink was inside them the language was choice to say the least.
Our kids felt too intimidated to enter the pool so it did put us off somewhat, saying that it encouraged us to take a picnic down to the beach to watch the sunset.
I would love to go back but I would make sure no large groups were due at the same time. Apparantly this same work group spend one weekend in August there every year.
Met a few of the owners who were all really friendly.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A taste of the old Florida style, the Malyn is a friendly family resort located right in the heart of Treasure Island within walking distance of Gulf beaches, parks, shopping and restaurants. Sitting right on the edge of Boca Ciega Bay on the Intracoastal it is a great place to relax and enjoy some quiet time - maybe enjoy a sunset or just relax by the pool with a good book. With a fishing dock and boat dock it is the ideal place for families who love to fish. Grills and a lovely waterfront cabana are fun too especially for small group get togethers. The newly appointed Staff and Management are experienced in the hospitality industry and are customer focused. Their philosophy is service orientated and their main goal is to exceed your expectations. ... more less
