“Unbeatable porch to watch the sun rise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

We stayed in unit 135 for 4 nights. This is a two bedroom condo which is absolutely beautiful. Granite counters, large kitchen, new appliances and comfortable seating made this place a real pleasure in which to stay. We spent every evening sitting on the porch that faced East and watched boats enter the marina. Sunrises were spectacular but the Keys' sun got hot pretty fast. It was easy to move to the comfortable couches and cool off under the fans and AC. The breakfast bar also doubled as a good place to make drinks in the evening before moving back outside. The unit was equipped with everything we needed from coffee maker to microwave. If I return to Key Largo, this will be the apartment I rent. The only downside was the front bedroom got too much light through the shades but this is a minor flaw in an outstanding rental.

We stayed in a 4 bedroom unit Christmas Week with our extended family. We had a great time from the great low entry pool (great for the young grand kids) to riding bikes and running on the trail across the street from the resort. The resort is quiet and well taken care of. There were even decorations out at some condo's for Christmas. The unit had four bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, the bottom bedroom could be a condo in itself. The tennis courts were nice and we used them just about every day. The 24 hour security personal were courteous and friendly, as were the workers around the complex. The resort was close to alot of attractions my wife and 8 year old grand child swam with the dolphins about 10 minutes away. The bird refuse about 3 miles away was a neat side trip for us and a couple of the grand kids. Overall the Mariners Club was a great location for every thing you would like to do in the keys!

Our Villa was first-class! I was there with my wife and two kids (ages 23 & 24). The unit had 3 bedrooms, 2 bedrooms had their own bathroom and shower plus there was another half bathroom, a modern kitchen including stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, a big dining room / living room, a large balcony with a small couch and nice chair along with a table and 4 chairs for eating outside. The ocean view was awesome. We came from Fargo, ND with snow and 10 below temps - here we had 80 degrees and 2 pools, a hot tub and a grotto to enjoy! Relaxing by the pool they had lounge chairs on sand which gave you a beach feel. The tennis courts looked nice too but they don't have a Pro Shop that rents rackets so we didn't get to experience that. The 24-hour security guards gave my wife and daughter peace of mind. We drove to Key West one day and the trip was easy from here. One note of caution - the bed in the master bedroom was very high and some elderly people may have trouble getting on and off. Overall I felt the Mariners Club was an excellent value! I'm going to be recommending this to my friends and relatives. I can't wait for the next time we come to the Keys!

Mariner's Resort Villas was a phenomenal experience! My wife and I took my parents to celebrate after the ING Marathon. We could not have had a better time. This resort is quiet, well groomed and gives you the R&R that one would be looking for during a Keys vacation. The villa we stayed in was decorated beautifully and extremely spacious for 4 people.

Enjoy the comfort of the keys at this hidden gem!

We stayed at Mariner's before and had a wonderful experience in a beautiful two-bedroom villa. So we were quite happy to have scored accommodation there for a holiday weekend.

The night before our arrival, the booking service contacted us and said we could not go, as the resort was overbooked. This despite the fact that we'd prepaid and booked a week in advance.
My husband called the resort. They blamed it on the booking service. The booking service blamed it on the resort. The bottom line is that we were left with no place to stay in the Keys the night before a holiday weekend.

I would suggest that if the booking services are such a problem for the resort they terminate the relationship. The booking service told us that they had several other people in the same situation with the same resort. Interestingly, while looking for other accommodation in the Keys the day we were supposed to have arrived, Mariner's was STILL showing up on other booking sites as having availability.

Thank goodness we live within driving distance and had not traveled far to stay at Mariner's. We simply canceled our plans and stayed home. Folks who'd traveled some distance, or for whom this wasn't the first or only stop would have been stuck.

I'd recommend passing on Mariner's and going somewhere that will dependably honor your reservation.

Room Tip: Either book directly with the resort or go somewhere else.

Beautiful landscaping with a huge zero depth pool. Comfortable but dated units with lots of extras in the kitchen to help you feel at home. We reserved a two bedroom unit and were assigned a three bedroom, three bath house. The big issue was all the steep stairs with no rails on the landing. Difficult for our elderly traveler and a bit of work to haul luggage up to the masters suite on the top floor. I absolutely loved the second floor screen porch with chaise lounges and great ocean view!

Spent last week at one of the Mariner's 3 BR units, it was so lovely and comfortable, even our 21 and 19 year olds enjoyed it. Although it is oceanfront there is no beach but the pool is beautiful and has sand around it to give you a beach feeling. It was very quiet during our stay which we liked and we felt like we had the place to ourselves. We ate lots of fresh fish and can recommend Snapper's Restaurant, The Fish House Encore, and next door's Mandalay's Island Grill. Mrs. Mac's for breakfast or lunch, too. Fun time.
