Banana Bay Resort - Key West
Ranked #51 of 51 Hotels in Key West
Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

We stayed in room 209 with a small view of the pool and waterfront. The pool/jacuzzi area is nice and clothing-optional. The waterfront is good for relaxing briefly but there is no sand or water activity here; it is NOT a beach. Breakfast is included but limited to bagels, muffins, cereal, and a waffle machine; they were out of coffee both mornings we went. The room included a cute canopy bed, TV, fridge, microwave, and small balcony. The bathroom was small with a stained counter and fidgety sink faucet. There was free wifi in the lobby but no wifi at all in our room. The walk to Duval is a bit long so we ended up renting a scooter (which I highly recommend!!). There are no obvious good food or grocery options within short walking distance (the closest was a Checkers across the highway). Overall, we enjoyed our stay and the pool/waterfront area, but next time we will probably spend a little more to be closer to Duval.

Stayed at this resort last spring and I can't understand why it only gets three stars. It's an excellent resort which is close to the downtown district. The rooms are large. Great view of the pool and gulf from our room. The beach area was clean and well maintained. the other nice thing for us being retired is that there are no children allowed under 16. Free continental breakfast. My only minor complaint was that the only wi fi reception is in the breakfast room.

Request the Marina Room, you get your own kitchen, fridge, stove, and your own outdoor patio seating. They have dolphin charter boats that come and go daily and your right on the canal . The last time i was there there were two manitees that were in the canal. we gave them fresh water and were able to pet them. They have laundry facilities on site, breakfast every morning, pool access with a tiki bar and beautiful view of the golf,. I stay here everytime i go to the keys. You are walking distance from shops and resturants.

Room Tip: ask for a marina room

We loved this hotel! Very nice room with canopy bed. Clean and beautiful! The grounds were beautiful and peaceful. We sat by the marina every evening and watched the sunset - breath taking! This would be a wonderful hotel for a honeymoon. Very romantic and secluded.

I always like to hang out at the Pool Bar at Banana Bay when I visit Key West! Miss the pigeons! Great spot for straight couples. Very clean pool, and friendly staff. Super view... What more do you need?
I'd stay there, if I didn't have a free place to stay!

It was our 22 year wedding anniversary and booked this "cozy" resort for our weekend. When we checked in our room AC was broken... I called front desk they sent someone that tried to look like an AC tech... Air was still broken... Called again and we decided to go out for dinner bc it was extremely hot to be in the room. When we got back we were told that the AC was fixed... Surprise, they turn on the ceiling fan! Room was so hot we decided to pack and leave.... Now I am being charged for one night( mind you we stayed 4 hours) and we were not even informed of this.... Shame on you Banana Bay Resort I will never stay or recommend you NEVER!!!!!!

Room Tip: Never book here!

Just got home yesterday::(( Loved the Banana Bay! The pool and hot tub were great! Only thing negative was that the tiki bar was not open. Stayed in room 109. View to the pool was a little obstructed but I could get to the pool in a matter of steps. This is the closest walking distance room to the pool. I also loved the sitting under the trees in the bay area. I was a little skeptical after reading the reviews... but was pleasantly surprised!! Had a wonderful time!! I highly recommend renting a scooter! Best way to see the island!

Room Tip: Room 109 is very convenient to the pool.
