Where do I start?? We were put in the main building with a connecting door to the room on our left which meant the paper-thin walls kept even less noise out. Every night we had to listen to two televisions plus other peoples' conversations. The air-conditioning unit was in the bathroom and was cheap and noisy with a warning not... More

In my opinon. These cottages are far from A Paradise. We arrived in the afternoon to our cottage, it is quaint, and run down. It was a rainy day outside and inside. Our roof had a leak,so they switched our cottage to another run down let me call it a Shack. Tile chipped, smoke detector in new cottage is sitting... More

The room and staff were lovely. No pool, no ice or vending machines and no beach access at all. The air conditioning in our cottage was a window unit too small to cool the room. We actually bought a fan too get through the night.

When we chose this place, we didn't realize that our friend was only 2 minutes away and our other friend's canvas shop was just across the street. Oh so convenient. We were in Cottage #5 and it was clean with a king sized bed. Everything we needed was there and if you needed more room for friends they have a... More

The cottages looked cute and clean on the internet and had pretty good reviews, so we booked a cottage for a two night stay. We arrived in the evening and the office was dark and locked. We waited for a while hoping someone would show up, but no one did and no one answered the phone when we tried to... More

We were 3 adults requiring a room for one night and were booked into No 1, which had a separate double bedroom and pull-out bed settee in the living area. It also had a super little front porch where you could sit out with morning coffee, or an evening beverage, and watch the goings-on. Whilst small, the unit was very... More

We stayed in Marathon for a night and thought that Tropical Cottage has a really nice location. It was very comfortable and surprisingly quiet. Breakfast was definitely not what we expected so we ended up going somewhere else. But it was relatively okay for the price. They could definitely clean up the bathroom a little better.

I didn't go to the Florida Keys sit in a room. The cabins are quaint and clean. We had cabin #9. Nice sitting area outside for coffee in the am or cocktails in the evening. We enjoyed it! We'll go back for sure
