My folks bought a bunch of weeks here way back when, so we come back every now and again. We're a 40-somethings couple with a 6 yr old.
The place is tired and dirty in corners: dusty vents, soap scum and dust in the laundry area, grout is dark in the showers and chips and scrapes everywhere, and most stuff in the kitchen doesn't match. 2-3 star kind of vibe.
That said, we'll be back. Marathon in general is very friendly and so is this place. Great staff, nice pool, everything works. Great restaurants, groceries and general amenities, beaches, seven mile bridge; the sort of stuff you're in the Keys for is all nearby.
We've done our share of five star travel but come back here the same way we go to the old family cottage.
Recent reviews noted the lack of Wifi but it's here now in the room and super fast with all three of us plugging away.
It's a fine place. Be ready for tired, dated and dusty and relax, get into the pace of things, and you'll have a fine time.
