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.
