Stayed with friends but loved the resort! Nice setup for hammocks and just tables under the palms. Restrooms clean. Great view on the water. Very nice. Would have stayed longer given time. Prices were pretty reasonable from my research.

Beautiful view, beautiful outside property, great location ............but just okay living quarters. I guess I'm spoiled - but when I go on vacation, I want to stay somewhere just as nice as my home or possibly nicer. The villa is a trailer and it has so much potential! Cute colors and enough space but it's the little things that make... More

I'm very sorry you were disappointed with the shower curtain, the mattress, and the AC grates. We replace those grates frequently. I guess in a saltwater environment they rust faster, but we do replace them every year. I will look into the other issues you experienced. We hope you will give us another chance and stay with us again. More

This April my husband and I joined another couple for a week in the banana cabana and had a wonderful time! Beach was small but lovely with plenty of chairs for lounging, a scattering of tiki shade huts, some decent snorkeling in the grass beds off the beach and along the jetty, and friendly guests. The deck was great for... More

We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay! I just wanted to point out that we should have plenty of cooking supplies - pots, pans, and measuring spoons should be in the cabinets and drawers.

The accomodation was good, the bed was really comfortable. The boat had everything you needed for a holiday. All the neighbours were really friendly and all made you feel so welcome. Abby was a great host and nothing seemed too much trouble. The boat is in a brilliant location for all the local bars and restaurants. If the weather had... More

We were there in 2012 and were very disappointed. The so called manager was Tanya's younger son who was kept busy entertaining a couple of young ladies who were much nicer to view than the resort. Yes, I was disgusted and NO we were not disagreeable but after 4 days of fighting for a toilet to work, burned out bulbs,... More

Wow, such a nasty review...and 4 years later? Things have changed at Dream Bay, although I'm still the owner. My young son passed away in 2014 in a boating accident. Rock Star died the same year. We have wonderful new marina tenants - quieter ones I suppose - but many guests loved both my son and Rock Star. I'm sorry... More

Our large Florida family absolutely LOVED Dream Bay Resort. We rented the Tropicasa & one other 2/2 house on the property. It was so accommodating & the kids loved it. We had 9 adults (30-65 yrs old) and 4 children (under 5). We also brought our 2 chihuahuas. The beach was perfect for us. It was private-- all ours, and... More

My sister from Virginia came with me to help celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. We stayed at the Banana Cabana and loved the resort. Although the unit was smaller than the others, it was clean and had a updated kitchen. We noticed (as another viewer mentioned) that if you had a visitor come to the door, they would be able...

We had a wonderful week in November 9-16, 2013 in this resort. The grounds are fantastic, well manicured, private beach, just more than one could ask for, plus the entire property is gated.

Stayed at the Banana Cabana January 2015. The owner was more than accommodating and gracious. Check in was super easy. The Banana Cabana was as we expected, 2 bedrooms, kitchen (stove, coffemaker, microwave, toaster, no dishwasher, nice clean fridge) and small bathroom in between. Each bedroom has a flat screen TV. There is no living room, but that we already... More

We're glad you had a great time overall, but sorry to hear that you had some issues with jellyfish at the beach. Our beach is very much a swimming beach. It isn't a "boat launch". We do not allow launching of boats there. The keys only has small, man-made beaches since we're a coral chain of islands. But almost all... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dream Bay Resort is a small, family-owned resort and marina located in Key Largo, Florida. We offer a limited number of vacation rentals with dockage and spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico. For many of our guests, one of the truly memorable parts of their vacation at Dream Bay is meeting all of the colorful locals that reside here. Friendships are made and guests often wish to stay in contact. Pets are welcome, trailer parking, and boat slips on site. Wireless internet is also available on the entire property, including the beach.Our friendly "compound" includes four rental houses, plus a small marina, which allows for a boat to kept here at no additional charge. A fishing jetty, tiki, picnic tables, and a small assortment of other residents and guests add to the laid-back, "keysey" charm.
