Reviewed 20 March 2014

Even though located literally on the major commercial strip, resort was quiet, and insulated. Nice design / layout of the units. Great for a multi-family visit. At 95% occupancy (allegedly but never seemed crowded. Grounds well maintained, lots of water sports available. Beach not really inviting / swimmable (sea grass). Kids pool fine, not crazy, have a separate adult pool, we enjoyed that. Restaurant there was very good generally, not cheap. Gym not impressive, limited equipment.

Rare to find - a resort that offers spacious (for the keys) 2 bedroom fully appointed condo units as well as daily housekeeping, excellent dining, 2 pools and an active water sports area to kayak, jet boat, sail or fish. The off site diving, snorkel, fishing tours are excellent. Well worth the money. We've stayed at many places in marathon over the years - including renting homes, b&bs, condo units at Hawks Key and Tranquility Bay exceeds them all. Front desk staff (Otis), Butterfly Cafe hostess, Bert on watersports, Shandy the waitress from the cafe, Melissa / John from the DSD pool course, and all the other staff we stayed in contact with over our 8 day stay were all friendly, service oriented, and hard working. Well done. Beautiful grounds in a gulf side setting. Only drawback? The second bedroom is very small for two teens or adult guests. The 6
House cats added a fun character to the place as did the massive iguanas.

Our first experience in the Keys! This resort is wonderful. We had unit 71 (3 bedroom) and had ocean views from the main floor and master bedroom deck. The unit was very roomy and clean. We received clean towels (bath and pool) every day! It was so peaceful and relaxing. NOT a place for the college crowd on spring break. There were many families and kids running around, but everything was quiet by 11pm. Only negatives are the lack of snack food after 5pm and beverages after 8pm. A kids club where they could hang out and mingle would be nice, mine got a tad bored staying on the property. There is a lot to do off property too.
Would definitely stay here again.

No help offered with luggage by front desk, was just told the luggage carts were outside on side of building, there were none to be found anywhere. Had to wander the parking lot to find an employee who finally helped with bags with utility cart. No one ever mentioned when I made reservations, that there was no elevator (had a lot of luggage was in Florida for two weeks). The pools closed at dusk, which also sucked because the beach stunk so bad from the sea grass there was no where to swim. And yes I know you can't get rid of all of it, but the beach was so small it was do-able, and should have been since the pools closed so early, which I also was not told. When I made it to my second floor world class luxury resort room,I pulled the comforter back and found a used kleenex and two dirty pillow cases. I tried calling front desk, no answer. After five minutes of calling and no one answering, I walked through the maze of their property to tell them. I was told this never happens and they had housekeeping come up and change the sheets like they should of in the first place. The only thing I got after that was looks from the front desk clerks and housekeeping like I planted the tissue and dirty pillow cases myself. No apologies, no comps nothing! This is how a world class luxury resort operates? When I checked out they still did absolutely nothing to try to make all the wrongs of this place right! Don't waste your money, you would be better off sleeping in your car!

Room Tip: My tip is go to another hotel, because these people don't care!

We had never been to the Keys before... weren't sure about where to stay. First of all, staying in Marathon was perfect - we were glad to get out of the busier/more touristy Key West. This resort was extremely quiet, yet extremely kid-friendly as well. We were there during Spring Break, and although the place was full, we never felt crowded - at the pool or on the small beach front. The resort is beautiful manicured and kept - and the service is outstanding. We ate at the Butterfly Cafe for dinner 1 night, and had gotten groceries to eat breakfast in our condo. All other meals we ate off site. The only reason my rating isn't a 5 is that it would be nice to have a less expensive meal option (snack bar type or something quick and easy) handy on site and also that our "waterview" condo didn't really have a waterview because the lush trees were blocking our entire view! So, although beautiful, we were a little disappointed as we planned on sitting on our master balcony sipping coffee every morning and looking out to see the ocean...
We still LOVED the place and will be back. And we found great restaurants off - our absolute favorite being the 7 Mile Grill. YUM!

Really a nice quiet place in the Keys. Restaurant was very nice; probably the nicest of all the places we ate during our vacation. We went with another couple and I actually think if I was to go again, I would try to get a three bedroom, rather that the two bedroom. Although the view is great from the master bedroom the second bedroom was a little too tight and there was no back balcony. Will definitely consider going again.

Loved this property. Views amazing. Grounds were well kept. Restaurant had excellent food and although we arrived right before closing they treated us so kindly and had our food ready quickly. One of the best places my husband and I have ever stayed at.
