My husband and I honeymooned here in 2003. We met a great couple who got married at Banana Bay. I wish we did the same thing. It was very peaceful and relaxing after our chaos for the wedding. We were close to the Aquarium and lots of resturants. The food was delicious at the resturant. Breakfast was always fresh. We had a cozy, clean room. We had the pool and the gulf all to ourselves most days. The sunset was beautiful from the tiki bar and the entertainment was great (lots of J Buffett). We enjoyed talking to the fisherman at the marina. They taught me how to filet fish properly. The pictures I have are memorable and I look at them a lot. We now have a daughter and it's a great family stay as well. The staff is very nice and personalable. Will stay here again and again!!!

After leaving our 3 night stay at Banana bay, the hotel left me without much feeling. I didnt really dislike or like it, it was simply an average resort in the Keys. The check-in process was very easy, but they refused to upgrade me even though there were plenty of rooms available. In fact she was kinda snippy about it, as if to say " how dare you ask for an upgrade?". The rooms was large, but our non-smoking room reaked of smoke. Other then that the rooms were clean but somewhat bland. The view from our balcony was almost non-existent, it looked right into some trees and then into the parking lot. The pool was OK, it had a nice little bar area with friendly bartenders and some decent poolside snacks. The breakfast buffet was a real downer and truley laughable. Dont expect any kind of meal at all. They have a man made beach which isnt really a beach, more like a rocks with a cutout sitting area. They did tell you that before you came though, I just thought it would be a litte nicer then it was. I did like the tiki bar down near the water, it was a fun place to have some drinks at the end of the day and watch a sunset. All in all the Banana Bay Resort is fine for most people, the prices are reasonable. Just dont go expecting luxury anything like that of a Hyatt or Sherton. If you keep that in mind you will probably be somewhat pleased with this resort.

Banana Bay is just perfect for that romantic hideaway sort of place. We were looked after from day one and cant wait to return. Just loved it.
