I had no problems ...check in was excellent, my room was relaxing, and beautiful, made me want to stay some extra days. There's a pool, hot tub, beach and marina right there on the resort grounds. The locals were very friendly. They do...

Great stay at Banana Bay! I stayed prior to the recent renovations, and they have made a huge improvement. The beds were super comfortable and the shower had power! The pool area is nice, and the resort is conveniently located. I would definitely stay here again. My only criticism, and it's a small one, is that you can hear people...

This was a great stay for my girlfriend and myself. The room was very nice and a perfect resting place for us when we participated in the 7 Mile Bridge Run. Perfect location to get to Islamorada or Key West. The staff was very helpful, even helped changed our car's battery which died in the middle of our stay. We...

Quiet location on the water. Rooms were very nice and outside improvements were made and were being made daily. Easy distance to any restaraunts and stores. Also close to the beach. It appeared this property had not been revived in quite a while but the improvements made daily were encouraging. We would visit again and would recommend to others.

I have to say i only stayed one night at the resort. The only observation i have is the floor was not very clean and also there was a wet towel in the bathroom. But the room was in very good shape and the beds pretty comfortable and clean.

Good Day Ariel N Thank you for such a great review, I do apologize for the housekeeping mishap, there should never be a wet towel in a room. I have communicated this to housekeeping to make sure we do not make the same mistake twice. I hope to see you on your next trip.. Larry W. General Manager

A resort should have a bellhop, food, drink, lodging, sports, shopping, and an array of amenities that typically include entertainment and recreational activities. There is no one to help carry your luggage, no food, no gift shop, sad tennis court, and the air conditioning works but sounds like a jet engine. To be recently renovated, its already looking run down....
