I think its ridiculous to have pay top dollar for a resort where I have to take out my own trash and ask for more towels. My room was over flowing with garbage. The dockmaster was fired so we had to argue with other boaters for our boat slip and plead that we paid for our spot. I spent hundreds on a slip and people were un tying our boat and moving it. Very unhappy experience. The cleaning people were very nice and helpful when you saw them. The ice machine was out of order the whole time in our hallway. Infind this every unacceptable. We had dirty towels everywhere and no where to put them. The rooms was nice but needed daily cleaning. The tiki was nice and staff was pleaseant. I enjoyed chatting with Troy the bartender. He was kind and professional. Office staff was friendly and kind.

Great place! Nice updated rooms and great marina. Only reason for not giving 5 stars was lack of ice and the pool needs a lot of updating. The 8 foot deep part of the pool is basically unusable for most people so everyone crowds into the shallow end. Not sure if a pool “cooler” is possible but the water is way too hot (like 95 degrees). Also the pool bar was never open. The bar on the point was great for sunsets!

I stay at Marathon Key Beach Club located on the same grounds. I rent a slip for a week and am satisfied overall. I have been renting a slip every year for 30 years. The harbor waters are always calm. The Dockmasters I have encountered are always friendly and helpful. They have water and electric hookups at every slip included with the slip rental. There are restrooms, showers, and laundry for renters. They have a a huge pool and hot tub that slip renters may use. Publix supermarket, Home Depot, West Marine, Sombrero Beach, and local restaurants and shops are nearby. The 7 Mile bridge is 2 miles west of the marina which leads out to the Atlantic Ocean and Sombrero Reef which is a beautiful snorkeling and diving site. Great Mahi Mahi fishing offshore. The bay side is ideal for watersports of all kinds. Overall, Banana Bay Marina is a great location in the middle keys for everything boating. Key West is only 49 miles west of the marina for those who like to sightsee, barhop, and party.

We come down here every year, and have to say the new dockmaster is very attentive and friendly. The wifi connection isn’t great at the marina but fair in the resort areas. We pass through Banana Bay specifically because the marina is well protected and you get access to the pool. Be back soon!

It wasn’t very clean. Trash cans not emptied every day. Docks weren’t blown off leaves on they. It wasn’t staffed at all.

Absolutely the worst marina experience in 13 years of boating. Where to begin? Shower/bath facilities are atrocious. Pump out only once per week, on their schedule. The entire facility is falling apart. Pool closed. Hot tub closed. Laundry room floods every time you do a load. Internet is down most of the time and if you do get a signal you have to be sitting in front of the dockmaster's office. We have been coming here seasonally for over 10 years and this will be our last.

A nice small marina on the NW side of Marathon. Since it is connected with a resort, the amenities of the pool, tennis courts, bikes, and lounges on the sandy areas were nice. It certainly was not at its peak and they could use a bit more maintenance all around the resort and marina but very satisfactory. It is a good location to get to Pubix, Home Depot and Marathon Park. Very nice tropical vegetation around. Bathroom/shower facilities were just okay, but we don’t usually use them, so not a big concern for us. We had some north, NE winds with which we were concerned, but we did not rock much at all, so we’re very pleased.

Plus’s - slips are inexpensive with electric and water. Parking lot right next to marina. Sandy point and hammocks are pretty nice. To be fair, we stayed on our boat and didn’t see the rooms. Con’s - Harbor has a ton of accumulatesd smelly sea grass, no marina staff, no ice, jacuzzi wasn’t working, pool was cloudy and had lots of foliage debris. Thank God my boat has its own shower. Marina unsecured. Sandy point overtaken by locals and other non-guests to go shark fishing at night. They were still sleeping on the lounge chairs when we left the marina this morning. Good price for a slip, but I won’t be back.

Great marina. Easy to access and nice to have not only power and water but pump out too right at the dock.

We stayed at Marathon Key Beach Club and kept our boat at Banana Bay's Marina. Couldn't have been more perfect! Really appreciated that water was included in the rate for the week.

There was no dock master, no one to tell us where to keep the boat. Never saw anyone all week. Called a left a message for the dock master that was provided my the hotel front desk and never got a call back.

My wife and I stayed here for a long weekend over the dates of May 7-10, 2010. What a relaxing place to stay. Our room had a view of the new marina with great sunrises and wonderful sunsets. the room was very clean and the bed conforatable. The new Dock Master Larry is very friendly and accommodating nothing was too much to ask for. The fresh water pool was wonderful and the Tikki bar was a nice pool side treat. The rum runners are the best I've ever had (special recipe I was told) The staff through out the property was very friendly and helpful. The GM has really turned things around since the last time we visited. We could see now why their tag line is "Where tranquility has a place" we can't wait to go back.
