Our extended group recently stayed in the Marathon and Key Largo units at the Siesta Key Banyan Tree Resort. Although I found reviews of other units, none of this location (603 Beach Rd.) had been posted, so I thought I'd give a review of the accomodations for future travelers.
First off, the ladies that run Banyan Tree are very responsive and helpful. They answered my questions before and during our stay and provided good information about the unit and area.
603 Beach Road is a 3 unit building on the corner Beach and Calle Del Inverno. The location was great for us as there is a beach access right across the street, the village is about a five minute walk, and the public beach (for our teenagers) was only about a 1/4 mile away.
Key Largo is a 1BR/1Bath unit on the second floor. It is pretty small, but worked well for us and would for couples as well. It has a small kitchenette, living room, and bedroom.
Marathon is across the hall on the second floor and has 3 BR's and two baths. The master BR is very large, the other two basically just fit beds and dressers (King in one, two twins in the other). The kitchen is good sized and has an average amount of amenities. The living room/dining room isn't real big, but we did not spend a lot of time there. The living room has a slider with a distant view of the gulf.
The location has a small backyard with propane grill and three sets of tables and chairs. We used this area to grill out several days. Some additional/upgraded chairs would be a good idea. The units are pet friendly and we brought our family dog with us. The location does not have any grass, but we were able to take him on walks nearby to do his business.
Overall we enjoyed this place. The units are not luxurious, but are in decent shape and the location was perfect.
