“Rooms need updating”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

This hotel "resort" had a room available at a Key West reasonable night. Seeing as this tript was for business I didn't use the pool or beach, but they looked fine.
As advertised it is very quiet being adults only, but my air conditionary could have drowned out a class of 3rd graders on a sugar high. The beds was extrememly comfortable, but the rooms are in serious need of renovation.

Enjoyed are stay everyone was very nice. rooms were clean. The only thing i can say is we went to the pool a little late there is no pool hours listed thinking that this is a adult resort that they dont have any pool hours, well we were kicked out of the pool they then told us the pool closed down at sunset. I be totaly hounest after that we didnt go back in the pool only because we were so busy having fun doing all the fun things on the island we didnt have time. We actually busy from sunrise to sunset.

Room Tip: when i was doing laundry at the reasort a maid was cleaning the room next to me i asked to take...

There are some really negative comments posted about this place. Honestly, I am pretty picky about where I stay and I found this Resort to be clean, the staff friendly and close to the places that I wanted to go. Yes, it does have an adult theme, however, it's very private. Our room had a view of the water and the 'beach'. It does have some quirks, however, you are staying in a humid climate and some wall paper issues, etc. are to be expected. The Tiki Bar was not open our entire stay, which was a week. However, if you want a quiet night at your hotel there are grocery store's with in walking distance. The water view was outstanding. Continental breakfast is provided. Duvall street is about 1.5 miles away. We rented a scooter to help get around. I would stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a water view.

We were just looking for a nice place for a short get away and the Banana Bay Resort had a room with 2 beds for $159, everything else was over $200. When we first got there the little buildings near the front were not that impressive, but we were in the larger building at the back of the property. The room was nice a large, clean, refrigerator, coffee maker and a covered balcony. The furniture was a bit outdated, but this was for two nights, we were not moving in.
At the end of the building closest to the water was a breakfast room(fresh waffles) and a small gym. There was an outdoor area for eating right on the water. There was also a nice pool and beach area with lounge chairs.
The resort is at mile marker 2, so it is a hike into town. There is a bus stop in front and for $2 no walking is needed. There is also dock space if you have brought your boat, and various water related tours from the resort.

That should be the sign at check in. We stayed there 2 nights and were mildly happy with our choice. All the employees were nice, there are some things that have to be fixed like wallpaper, slow sink drains, broken light bulbs. On the plus side the price was fair , location ok , water view of harbor with chairs was nice ,and free breakfast, free parking .

Right after we booked a room in the Banana Bay resort, we noted the "adult theme." Not to worry, though; there was no evidence of topless or bottomless display. We arrived well before check in time but were able to park our car on the property before checking in. This allowed us to walk the 3-km to the Duval-Greene intersection, the sort of centre of activity in Key West without having to worry about parking. Similarly, we were allowed to leave the car after checking out. The staff was very friendly. Our room was spacious, the bed was comfortable, the view of the inner courtyard from the balcony pleasant. The room was well equipped. I could not ask for anything more. Two potential downsides: wifi is limited to the garden room and breakfast is OK if you like bagels. It was a bit on the noisy side on account of loud "young adults" that hogged the hot tub but we didn't come all the way to Key West to sit in a hot tub. The "beach" is not what I would call a beach; it's more like a rocky shore. The Key West trolley stops a block further East in front of the Fairfield Inn and Suites and is one way to get from the resort to downtown Key West but the trolley only runs in one direction so, if you want to get from the resort to downtown, you have to take the trolley along the south side of the Key. The way back is, of course, much shorter.

Despite negative reviews, a group of us tried it and LOVED IT. Rooms large, clean, refrig, microwave, canopied beds and balcony. Nice pool. Loved relaxing in comfortable loungers by waterfront - quiet and peaceful. Staff couldn't have been nicer. 5 couples arrived before rooms ready and they were wonderful about getting us settled before 3:00 to accommodate plans. 1.8 miles from town - great cab service.

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor of the 200 section and it was quiet and we were happy.
