“Enjoy Keys Without The Tourism Hassel.”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

I took my family for a weekend get away in the middle of July and loved it.

The positive:
We only had a studio which is just a big hotel room with two beds. The room was clean and ready for us when we arrived The bar/restaurant is a really nice place to watch the sunset. The bartenders are really freindly and make a decent drink. We only ate there once but what we did have was good. They have a really nice grilling area for you to use. The pool is vary refreshing after being out in the hot Florida sun and salt water all day. Marathon Key is about an hour south of Key West but has all the things you want to do in the Keys without the tourism congestion.

The Bad:
The room (at least ours) was in need of some updating. I did hear rumers that renovations where going to start after the summer rush though. They do have boat rentals but not many of them and good luck renting one before they are all out. Be prepaired to drive if you plan on going any where. Although Marathon has everything you might want to do nothing is walking distance. If you're looking for a party atmosphere you're not going to get it here. Dont get me wrong there are bars on Marathon but nothing like it is in Key West.

To me the bad things arent really that bad and had to nitpick to come up with what I did.

We just left The Hammocks on July 14, 2014 and we did NOT want to leave. Great room, perfect for the two us. Every single staff member was Wonderful, always saying Hello with a smile. We had room 309 - perfect view of the Ocean, pool, and Barney's Tiki Bar. We loved Deanna and Luis, and Luis can cook up some good fresh fish. Patricia was also very informative, and a really nice lady. It's a GREAT place to stay. We loved our room, bed was comfy, view was GREAT. Rented a boat for a day from Jerry's, bought a beautiful dress from Jerry's as well. We have NO COMPLAINTS about The Hammocks what so ever. No complaints about Jerry's where you can rent boats, Jet-ski's, etc which is on the property. THANKS to all the employees at The Hammocks for our Wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Room 309 has a great view of the ocean, pool, sunrise and sunset. We will want this room again when...

We went there on July 1.
When we looked at the online pictures, we thought this was very expensive hotel.
But when we reach there, it was not as expected.
However, the hotel is very good and peaceful.

The swimming pool is clean.
Most of the time we went to Key West instead of staying at the hotel.

Staffs are friendly that's what matters.
They said you'll be charged if you lose your towels but we got many beach towels by staffs.

Room Tip: If you are planning for key west then book a hotel in Key west not in Marathon. It's almost 2 h...

The location was perfect. The lobby, pool area and tiki bar were nice and well kept. The room was very out dated and the couch was so dirty we put sheets over it to even sit down. The young blonde at the front desk was put out to check us in but the rest of the staff were very helpful.

This property was a perfect place to get away. Excellent customer service. Nice Tiki bar and Grill. Medium sized pool and a choice of a fine bunch of fishing charters on the dock in back. Boat and jet ski rentals next door. Room was clean and comfortable .Room had a great view.

This was our first time staying at a BlueGreen facility and it has set a high standard for the rest of them! From the moment we walked in the staff, particularly Patricia, was phenomenal! Each hotel employee welcomed us and seemed incredibly excited to have us at their location. We were early to check in and asked if we could leave our bags behind the desk while we went out to explore Marathon. They accepted and offered to call us when our room was ready, which they did an hour earlier than they anticipated! The interior of the hotel is dated, sure, but we were not there for the interior design. Our room was large, comfortable, clean, and quiet!

On-sight there is a wonderful restaurant which offers an amazing sunset view for dinner. Make sure you see them fire the canon! There are also tons of hammocks that offer a perfect, relaxing moment. While there we took advantage of the on-sight outdoor activities and went for an afternoon kayak. Very reasonably priced and the ladies who run the store are great!

Again, can't say enough nice things about this hotel! If in the area again we would book another stay, no question! Thank you to your staff for providing us with an amazing stay. We hope to stay again.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are quiet!

Room was clean - more than enough towels. Staff was very courteous and helpful. There was only one thing that could be changed was that the air conditioner could have been lowered below 75. We had to purchase a fan just to keep it cooler at night. Room 320 has the best view by far! The bed could have been a little more comfortable as well.

Room Tip: Room 320 is the best room for the view -- as per the staff at the resort!
