“Great place”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

We had a wonderful stay here. Nothing at all to complain about. The next time I return to The Keys, I will try and stay here if it's available at the time.

My review of the sleep quality is based on the fact that the rooms are to bright for sleeping. Everything about sleeping was fine. And the review of the cleanliness is just that you need to wear flip flops in the room just because of the general sand that gets in the room.

We stayed at the Blackfin Resort and Marina this past weekend and had a wonderful time. From the outside we were a little skeptical, but we were also tired and wanting to get settled in, so we walked on in... and we were glad we did... the room was small, but adequate and CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN - VERY important to me! It was recently renovated. The mattress was soft and comfortable. We had a flat screen TV with an adequate amount of channels, a small fridge and microwave and a coffee maker. We thoroughly enjoyed the "beach" area where we were able to watch the sun set and take marvelous pics... we're planning another trip down there in a week or two and I do believe we'll make Marathon and the Blackfin Resort our stopping point.

Room Tip: they do allow pets and we did hear a few dogs barking in rooms when we walked around prior to regist...

I recently stayed at the at the Blackfin Resort and overall it was a very nice place for the price spend. The rooms were a little small but they were clean and recently remodeled. I love the marina area with the lighthouse and chairs where you can enjoy the beautiful scenery. The staff was very friendly and nice. The restaurant that is connected to the hotel " The Hurricane" was also nice the staff was very helpful and friendly and there buffalo cracked conch was delicious. The next time I am down that way Blackfin will be my first chose.

Room Tip: The single rooms are quite small you may just want to upgrade to a double.

We had stayed in Pompano for a week and had decided to extend our vacation for a coupla more days in the keys and we stayed at Blackfin. What a great place, of course it's not any 5 star resort but a clean quiest safe place to lay your head for a while. The rooms are tiny but newly remodeled, bath redone, fresh paint, A/C unit, TV etc., generally everything was brand new.

The best things about the place were the folks who worked there(top-notch, extremely friendly) and the little sandy point you can walk out to, very,very cool place to to kick back and have a drink or just watch the sunset. We did both :) . Also you can swim or snorkel out there, we tried snorkeling but didn't go very far out but had fun in our own clumsy way,haha.

There are larger rooms available too, I think we're going to go back sometime and stay in one of the efficiencies.
Oh yea, there's a pool, very tiny but has some tables and chairs around it. Enough to jump in and cool off.

Room Tip: Ask for a room further back in the place, it's a long slender property and further back, closer...

A great place to relax and prepare for a deep sea fishing trip! The room was clean and comfy, however very masculine. Front desk staff was helpful and friendly, cracking some jokes and making me feel like we should be old friends.

We were leaving pretty early the next morning so we were told to just leave the keys in the room.

The bed was comfy, the room was quiet and well kept.

We hit the bar for a few hours and had a great time laughing and playing pool. I don't know what the bar was called but the bartender could make a drink that would make your head spin! She was fabulous and we need to replicate her.

Room Tip: Back down toward the marina it's quiet and peaceful

We just left- spent 3 weeks here. It was perfect. This time we rode our bicycles through the neighboring resorts to see if we were missing anything- we weren't!!
Pool was as warm as the ocean water. We went swimming and snorkeling at the end- first time we had done that.
Can't wait to return!

I try and stay here whenever I have a dive trip planned in Marathon. I always use tildens scuba and this place is right behind it. The rooms are pretty clean and the bathrooms are newly remodeled. I like the location because hurricane is right out front so I can stumble back to my room after some drinking at the bar. If you plan on diving in marathon you cant beat this hotel for a place to stay. They even have a great special rate if your diving with tildens.
