This is a really nice place set right on the waterway. ASK FOR THE DISCOUNTED RATES FOR A WEEK'S STAY! You'll get a great deal. We loved the location, and the views. Nice folks, and clean pool/hot tub too!

Very clean rooms and property. Staff was friendly, efficient and very helpful. Great amenities. We loved the daily activities that were offered like Monday Morning Coffee Meet & Greet, Movie & Popcorn Night, Ice Cream Sundaes, and Hot Dog/Smoked Sausage Lunch. We'll definitely be back!!!

The Marina Bay Resort was a love at first sight for us in the mid 1980's. Visiting a friend who was living on his sailboat and renting a slip at the Marina Bay Resort, we found it convenient to East Pass, Destin, and Ocaloosa Island is directly across the sound. Boat traffic is fun and interesting to watch from a...

This is a quaint, pleasant resort. The grounds are beautiful. From the waterfront units or along the pier one can watch the boats sailing by, along with pelicans and other birds. The activities provided are fun, interpersonal, and well coordinated by Lady Di. We met several new friends while staying there. Activities are provided on- and off-site. Local restaurants are...

This is an older motel that is also a time share located on the Intracoastal Waterway. We met several couples who are regular yearly repeaters. The rooms and grounds are very well kept. When I had difficulty with the lock, maintenance was there within 5 minutes to fix it. The maid service was terrific and front desk very helpful. It...

We have gone to Marina Bay Resort many times for vacation. It's a wonderful place to spend relaxing time. It's always very clean and the staff is always friendly and helpful. The rooms have kitchenettes so one does not have to eat out every meal. Grills are also available. There are many other amenities such as a beautiful pool, on-site...

We only stayed for one night, but the staff were very friendly and the room was super clean! We had a stove, oven, microwave, fridge and all the necessities. Very reasonable prices for this area. The beach is a mile away, but you can walk to the bay behind the resort.
