Beautiful marina and setting. But the best part of this place is the team of people. From the people you deal with on the phone to the folks in the dock office when you check in, everyone treats you great. Best of all is the team of pros they have tending to the docks when you arrive. These guys are absolute pros.

We stayed in the marina here over the Christmas holiday. The Good: The staff at the resort are all EXTREMELY friendly and courteous. The dockmaster called us the day before arrival to confirm our reservation and get an estimated arrival time. We hailed the dockmaster as we approached, and were promptly met at the dock to help with dock lines and power connections. The facility is one of the cleanest that we've ever patronized. The marina itself is beautiful and well protected. The docks, power, grilling stations, bike racks and other facilities are great. The pool, bar and hottub area are very nice. We were able to enjoy the facilities and still maintain distance from other guests. There are several good dining establishments within walking and biking distance. The Bad: This place was obviously not originally designed to be a resort or transient marina. The dockmaster's office is as far from the docks as one can get and still be on property. There is no food/kitchen on property. There is no ships store or fuel available onsite. The marina shower facilities are locked up in the fitness center, and only available by special request and during business hours. Summary: There was a lot to like about this place, but given the proximity of other marinas that in the area that were really designed for the purpose, we're not sure if we'd come back.

One of the best marina experiences we have had. The Dockmaster, Brian and his crew were great. They checked on us daily to make sure we didn’t need anything and were awesome when we docked. I recommend this marina whole heartily to anyone who is looking for a marina in Marathon.

Very nice marina. Beautiful fixed docks. Staff is very helpful and friendly. A little bumpy in the outer basin with a north wind and lots of seagrass. Ask for the inner basin if you can. Lots of great eateries within walking distance, Home Depot and Publix less than 1 mile. Also a great longer term spot! Lots of loopers there.

This was our first time taking our boat to the keys on our way down almost to Marathon had some engine trouble had to come in on one engine our dock master Jose was awesome he came out to meet us and guided us in after his work hours. It was greatly appreciated. This place is a hidden gem absolutely beautiful almost made me regret spending only two night here on my way to key west. The staff was great from the bar tender pool side to lady at check in I was truly impressed I will be back for sure. I plan on spending a week next time. From the service to how clean the entire place was I will truly recommend this place to anyone who wants a quite get away any truly beautiful scenery I give this place two thumbs up without a doubt 👍🏾👍🏾

As beautiful as advertised, amenities are A++ Dockage is good with helpful dock assistants, when approaching marina, it is just east of the Micro Tower, with the Sunset Tower as you landmark upon approach. Laundry is not currently available, but pick-up laundry service available. Pump out located on outer marina, easier if used upon approach or leaving. The is a pump out service vessel that needs to be prearranged. Number of restaurants, Home Deport and Publix (easier bike ride) within walking distance. Looking forward to a return visit

The property is every bit as nice as it appears in the pictures. Pool is fantastic, and staff were outstanding. Very friendly and accommodating. The clubhouse has shuffleboard, a pool table, and a very very nice fitness center. Property is pet friendly. The marina could have benefited from an on-site restaurant and ship store, but there are several restaurants within walking distance. The Florida Keys lobster house has good food, is only a five minute walk, and has an extensive menu. There is a West Marine about a mile away. They don’t have a fuel dock, but have an agreement with Faro Blanco Marina, which is about 2 miles away and on your approach from the West / south where you can get discounted fuel. Coming in from the west we never saw depths less than 7 feet. Leaving to the north on our way to Naples we saw depuths never less than 6 feet.

This is a great marina with amazing amenities and great staff. They're still scaling up, so right now, it's very quiet and you get lots of attention. Buddy, the dockmaster went above and beyond when we had a problem with our shore cable.

Marlin Bay Marina was outstanding, this is a paradise with Class and facilities second to none, All the personnel was knowledgeable and courteous. Capitan Buddy was checking on our route in and help us in every detail related to our boat and our needs. The location is awesome and there are a few local spots outside the facility with local food like the Key Fishery and others. Pools and bar are beautiful and the Club house is filled with all sort of amenities. Looking forward to comeback soon... BTW we planned for a one day trip and ended staying 3 days ....that good it was..
