“Very comfortable relaxing stay”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

This hotel is located at the beginning of the keys. It's a great location if you need to be close to Miami (less than - 1 hr.) or making your way down to Key West (2+ more hrs).

My husband is a musician and sometimes plays in a neighboring location but we always stay at Marriott hotels whenever possible as they offer great benefits. This location did not disappoint at all.

We checked in and the staff was very friendly and our room was very comfortable with a water view. The pool is a nice size nothing special but the staff is always around to see if you need anything and providing free snow cones to everyone. Comfortable lounges and seating all around. Great drinks too.

The sunset was spectacular. There are several viewing areas including hammocks, benches and seats on the sand around the water. They even have a fire pit with seating by the water.

There is no real beach at this hotel or actually any nice beaches in the keys.

But we do have some of the most beautiful sunsets!

We stayed one night and hope to return

We pulled into the Key Largo Marriott after suffering though a drive through Ft L/Miami that by all rights should have taken 3 hours. It took almost 7. We were tired, frustrated, hungry, and hankering for a a beer or 6. On top of it all, it was Valentines Day.

Right from the beginning we were welcomed by friendly staff that seemed to understand what our drive had been like. We made it through registration in minutes, found our room, and headed to find the restaurant.

Calling it chaos is being polite. It was a Friday night, Valentines Day, in the Florida Keys. The perfect storm. Getting a table took a few minutes, but it really could have been hours. We were seated on a beautiful patio overlooking the ocean and docks. Our server, Rick, had quite obviously been through the ringer that night. His bussers had abandoned him and he immediately set out to get us settings, water, and bread. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't worried about the next hour of my life.

And then something changed. No idea what it was, but the relaxation that came over us as well as everyone in the restaurant was palpable. Rick found his second wind and his groove and we dug into to an amazing meal. Strongly recommend the Bay Catch.

The next day we spent time on the beach in a secluded area over by the volleyball net amongst the iguanas before moving on. Before we did though we enjoyed the buffet breakfast- the hash alone would bring me back for more; the fresh danishes sealed the deal for my wife.

We ended up staying again on our way back to Fort Lauderdale several days later, and the experience the second was on par if not better than the first time. The staff truly seems to care, and Rick is The Man.

Room Tip: Both times we stayed we were overlooking the highway. There was no road noise whatsoever.

Not because it wasn't a nice resort. My husband and I have decided that we just prefer a smaller, more off-the-beaten-track type of place. When we first pulled in to register, we were a bit worried about the location. The picture of the resort on this website is deceiving. It appears to be set amongst the mangroves. It's not ! It's right on busy "USeless1". Guess we should have realized that from the address! But, once we were on the grounds, we never knew the highway was there! Very beautiful, well-maintained landscaping. We stayed in a bayfront room which was very nice - room 102. It was directly over the volleyball court ... during Spring Break! We were concerned about the noise, but it was fine. Actually, it was fun watching a few games. No one was a "professional" (LOL) and everyone was having a great time! Slept great - very comfortable beds. We enjoyed the beautiful sunset from the "beach" and watching all the boats go by. Very friendly staff. Two things we missed having in the room - a coffee maker and small refrigerator. The only negative was when we first walked into the room, we were greeted by a very strong smell of cleaning products.

Room Tip: Like other reviewers have said, the bay front rooms are very nice.

We stayed one night in a two bedroom unit. The unit had a king bed in one room and 2 DBL in the other...which was great for our family. The bathroom and kitchen were fine but could be due for some updating...bedrooms and living area nice. We loved the pool, had drinks and utilized the happy hour apps at the tiki bar (not the pool bar). Great spot to watch the sunset from the pool.

The hammocks were nice, beach/pool chairs were plenty, umbrellas and palm trees provide shade, pool was pleasant, beach area was... well, its the keys and there aren't really beaches in the keys. Loved seeing the iguanas, and its convenient for renting paddle boards, kayaks, jet skis, or booking a dive/or snorkel trip, all of which can be done on site.

We didn't have a bath mat until our third day there. Once it appeared it was lovely. They brought extra towels and pillows and a roll away bed promptly. I liked the tall beds... we were able to stow our luggage under them and still access it easily as needed.

We enjoyed our stay here. Although it appears to be one of Marriott's older properties, it is very well kept. We found it to be very quiet! There were many families here at the same time we were, and we barely knew they were there. Many had children under the age of 5, but there was a nice mix of ages, from infant to elderly. Young couples and students were very well behaved, Staff was very courteous and helpful. You could conceivably stay here the whole time; no need to leave the premises. There is a small beach, pool, fishing charters, diving and snorkelling tours, volleyball, other games, spa...a true vacation!

Room Tip: Rooms on upper floors have balconies and good views.

As a platinum marquis member, I have been in Marriott resorts all over the world. Mathis was probably the worst run hotel with the most indifferent staff I have encountered in years. There were so many things wrong that we finally stopped complaining because it didn't seem to make any difference. The food was awful and exceptionally overpriced. Down the street we found a Holiday Inn which looked to be a better choice.
