We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff was great and the room was perfect for what we needed. A great getaway - next time we will bring the kids.

We stayed in the Stone Crab room for 5 days and enjoyed it thoroughly. The grounds are very relaxing with it's own dock, pool, hammocks and small beach. The owners and staff were very friendly and accommodating. The place was quite comfortable and clean. We appreciated that it was just outside Marathon on Grassy Key, much more relaxing than being right in Marathon. We will stay here again.

My wife and I stayed at this resort on our way back to Miami from Key West and found it to be a little gem. The room was spacious, clean, and fully fitted with kitchen, fridge and cooker. However, the real plus point for us was the free use of their kayaks and pedalos. We spent most of the two days we were there out on Grassy Key fishing and sunbathing. The family owners were very friendly and keen to advise on local restaurants, bars and attractions. We would unhesitantly recommend this resort for a stay in Marathon.

The room was very clean, spacious and had a full kitchen. The staff was very friendly and made you feel at home. We stayed in stone crab 17, which had a shared deck and its own gas grill. The pool was heated and you could use their kayaks, paddle boats, and canoes for no extra charge. You can enjoy the sunset by the bay on there chairs. The property looks like it could use some grounds keeping, the entry to the registration area could be spruced up and they need to replace the flags in front.

Just returned from 3rd stay at Gulf View. Room sizes to fit your needs.Clean,comfortable .Need anything - just ask. Parrots and tropical birds, turtles and iguanas on premises. Beautiful sitting area by the Gulf. Kayaks and paddle boat. Gorgeous sunsets. Large heated pool that we used every evening! Great location in Marathon. Next to the Dolphin Research Center - Best dolphin facility anywhere in the world. Friendly personalized service. This year we had a full kitchen,sitting area ,one bedroom unit. Looking forward to another stay at Gulf View Waterfront Resort next year if not before.Of course there is TV and air conditioning -extra towels - whatever you need.

This September my family and me went to Florida.We saw and did lots of fun stuff. When we first came to Florida we stayed in Gulf View Waterfront Resort(Marathon,Florida).Our plan was to stay there for 3 days but everything was so perfect and cool there that we finally ended up with 4 days.When you first step out of the car you feel like you get into the paradise because you look around and you see those amazing animals on the left especially that little angle bird(parrot) called "COCO" saying Hi and I love you every time you talk to her. On the right you get a great relaxing spot with hamacks, palm trees, tropical bushes and flowers, and the ocean in front of you. Also you are free to use kayaks and waterbicycles. In the area of the hotel there is a place where you can play many kinds of sports - minigolf, football, basketball, etc. Its like you have everything you need! Near the the relaxing place there is a big, clean pool(about 40 feet lenth and 4-6 ft depth). What fun we had there! The rooms are pretty big and clean with many towels. They have AC,TV, microwave, fridge and all other things you need. Complimentary tea and coffee are provided in the morning. There are many gas grills on the property and it's free to use them. Gas is free also. A friendly family owns the hotel. Mike is a cool guy, its nice to talk to him. Stefani, his wife, is always ready to help you. And they are both offer their advice in case you need to do shopping or have a lunch/dinner in Marathon. Thanks to both of them we loved the place, Marathon and its people!
Sunset is awesome there, the price is reasonable (from $111 per room), the service is excellent. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who planned to stay in Marathon. By the way, we can't wait to get back to the hotel next year with a few of our friends.

My husband and I stayed here overnight on our Honeymoon through the Keys. This is a family run establishment. Our room was upgraded to the King Waterfront when I mentioned that we were newlyweds on our honeymoon. The location was excellent you can walk to the Dolphin Research Center. They also gave us advice on resturants to have dinner. The pool looked great but we did not have time to partake in that or the free use of paddleboats or canoes. They also provide free coffee in the morning. We also enjoyed seeing the selections of birds, turtles and other animals on the site.
