We had a really nice time here. I found it to be clean but a little rundown. I think they need to hire some carpenters/maintenance men and shut down for a week or two to fix up the some things. The property to the right is awful and would complain to the town about that. What an eyesore!! Pool was... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff was courteous and friendly. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The view of the ocean was spectacular. We would highly recommend this resort to anyone visiting Marathon Key. We are planning to visit again next year.

At first: thank you for taking the time to write a review about Bonefish Resort. I read your review very carefully and I tried for a good part of the day to put a face to this article. I was not able to. I am so, so, sorry. I can only wish that instead of writing such an unfair review-you... More

I kind of knew what I was getting into after reading the other review, so I set the bar low. I would not call this a vintage resort, but rather a neglected resort. We suspect that the sheets were not changed from the previous guest after we awoke from the previous night. Hoping to shake off the uneasy feeling with... More

As we strive to achieve high level of customer service at Bonefish Resort I am sorry that your stay with us did not meet your expectations. I can assure you that as a part of daily housekeeping service linens are changed daily and so they were during your stay. I can only sincerely apologize for a "cold shower", however I... More

Having spent the past 30 winter vacations in the Keys, Bonefish Resort is, overall, the best value and most authentic Keys atmosphere I have found. Would not even consider lodging somewhere else when in the Keys. Truely a timeless Keys gem. Comfort, cleanliness, quiet, quick response by staff and affordability is rated by this seasoned traveler a 10....the views spectacular.

A great little place in the middle of the Keys, so it's close to everything while being away from it all at the same time. Relax by the pool, lay in the hammock, or take a kayak for a ride. Rooms are quiet and clean, while the staff is friendly and helpful.

Our trip had to be cancelled and I was worried about our deposit because we cancelled within a week and they have a two week window. I called and they will hold our deposit for one year. I think this is very fair. Thank you Bonefish management

Excellent location, addicting sunrises, nice rooms and friendly staff. What do you need more? It is much better than all those 'poshy' resorts full of loud tourists. And you can have it for a really affordable price. Highly recommended!

We had a wonderful time! When we first came in we had to go the office of the Yellowtail Inn. They have 3 hotels right next to each other. They were very helpful & gave us beach towels and a lot of great ideas of things to do. When we got to our cottage it was just like I pictured,... More

My wife and I stayed over the Thanksgiving holiday and had a fabulous time. We are seasoned travelers who usually stay at 5 star properties but decided this time to kick back in traditional Keys style. We enjoyed watching the sunrise every morning from the water front cabana while having our coffee that we made in our efficiency. The front... More
