Loved the overall location pool was wonderful. Only disappointment was the tiki bar not at all like the pictures on the Internet. Having a marina close by is a definite plus. Would be nice to have food items served at the tiki bar also to have takeout menus in each room.

The front desk staff was great and very accomodation. My friend's room was dirty when she walked and they gave her another room (it shouldn't have happened in the first place, but it was fixed). When I got to my room, the shower had not been cleaned. The office sent someone down. Over my 3 night stay, I killed quite...

What an adorable place! The main office is misleading so I wasn't sure what we were getting into but once on the grounds we were pleasantly surprised. Especially based on the price! Totally renovated rooms and building (we stayed in the building facing the marina). Quiet, comfortable, clean. Very modern, minimalist, coastal cottage decor. Pool could use updating but we...

Hi Jen W Thank you for a great review and the 5 stars wow. Thank you for the complements about the rooms, as you could see we have remodeled last year and upgraded all the rooms. The marina is a great place to watch the sun sink into the ocean each night. I hope to see you back again soon....

No bar ,no restaurant, no ice ,no private toilet ,sink too small no counter space to put items on. Noises air conditioner , resort view was 2 palm trees and a parking lot. The price was expensive compared to other hotels in the area, stayed at the Marriott in key largo and everything was very classy with all amenities .

Was much more than I had originally expected. Only negative was the fact the advertised "tiki bar" was non existent. It was a run down tiki hut with cold beer cans for sale. Besides that I will be returning.

2 night getaway for husband's birthday. The $1.00 B-Celebrated birthday deal is one that I hope to use again come MY birthday in October! Can't beat it. Marina/gulf view King room was huge and clean and freshly painted & tiled. Great beach art everywhere. LOVED the shower, drawers in the bathroom (I can't stand leaving toiletries all over the place)....

Took my son and his friend to the Keys for a couple days. I decided to stay the first day in Marathon because it was 3/4 of the way to Key West for us. I found Banana Bay Resort through Groupon, but the Florida resident rate was an even better deal. We arrived before our room was ready but were...
