“Wonderful Getaway!”
Reviewed October 21, 2011

My husband surprised me with a mini vacation! We stayed at Coconut Cay and made the evening trip to Key West. Steve and his staff were wonderful in helping him set up the vacation. The rooms were inviting and the grounds are so relaxing. We will definitely go there again! Thanks so much for a great time! Kevin and Cathie

We went down to Marathon to do some research and stayed at Coconut Cay Resort & Marina.

Their motto is something like "how it used to be" and that's true to course.

You instantly notice the bright colors of an old school Keys hotel. We had booked a waterfront / Dockside room and upon arriving (2pm) the very friendly front desk staff (Pam) was ready for us and our room was ready.

The resort is comprised of many buildings. Some seem to be larger villas, a clubhouse / pool, areas to walk around, a boat ramp, etc..

The room was very clean and spacious. Not a Ritz Carlton, not a place I would ever avoid. Picnic table out back overlooking the canal, perfect if we had had one of our boats with us.

The pool area was spotless, WiFi worked in the room and at the pool.

We walked to their Marina and another section of the resort on the beach and is was as clean, as lovely.

This resort / hotel / marina is NOT for someone from LA or NY who thinks that camping is a night without cable. You can’t compare Coconut Cay to the Waldorf. (Coconut Cay is more enjoyable!) This is OLD SCHOOL / FLORIDA KEYS. You will get a TRUE Florida Keys experience here.

Jim, Steve, Pam all of the people we encountered were GREAT. Friendly staff, clean grounds, clean rooms, etc.. Perfect Florida Keys getaway location.

Growing up in South Florida this resort is like I remember the Keys. Laid back, clean and most importantly FRIENDLY. Steve and his staff went out of their way for us. Pam in front office was always helpful and always smiling. Bart in maintenance checked on us repeatedly when we were fishing on their point overlooking the water making sure we had an umbrella and anything else. The room was perfect with a canal and boat dock right behind the room. The pool was perfect sized, open 24 hours a day and had a covered seating area complete with card tables and a dart board along with bathrooms. The bikes were a welcome addition as I rode to old seven mile bridge and on to Pigeon Key about 13 miles round trip and well worth doing. This is place for relaxation and fun not some snooty hotel where they have rules for pools and clothing.

Going through the stress of making your house ready for termite tenting ranks pretty high on the stress scale. Finding a hotel with reasonable rates to house you and your family for at least two nights is an additional expense to this already pricy situation and raises the stress level three-fold. Add finding a place that will accept your animal family members as well is near the certain death level.
Thankfully there is a delightful solution that not only offers reasonable rates and accepts your animal family members; it’s also close to home, and In the case of my family, close to work.
Coconut Cay offered two comfortable rooms with a kitchenette between which helped to keep our family together, and in the case of our animal family members apart and closer to normal.
The staff was very friendly and ready to offer assistance at a moment’s notice. It’s nice to know you don’t have to leave our community to enjoy what turned out to be a great staycation.

I stayed here last weekend and had an awesome experience. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. They provided each of us with kayaks (free of charge). We were able to use their boat ramp ON SITE to take them right out on the ocean. I have been to the Keys many times, and this was by far one of my best excursions. The pool was very clean and I loved how it was open 24 hours! They also have 2 pet birds in a cage close by the pool area that were very entertaining. We stayed in their "house" and the backyard view was amazing. We pretty much spent our whole time back there taking pictures! Great spot for families or anyone who has a boat!

We had a blast at Coconut Cay Resort. We rented a dockside room and anchored our boat right outside our room. The staff is very friendly and despite being beside the airport, it was really quiet. The rooms are clean and very comfortable but the beds are firm. The air conditioner made a welcome respite from the days heat.
We visited the local restaurants at night, fished in the day, and had a great time. I would highly recommend this resort for it's affordability and service. Although, the rooms have a microwave and mini fridge,I would have liked to have a coffee maker.
Next trip we plan to reserve a kitchenette so we can cook while we're there! It was nice to have the boat anchored right outside our room so we could just get in and go at any point.
