Reviewed 6 September 2013

We have being vacationing at this resort for years, new management has taken over with a new office staff and it's just not the same anymore, I was impressed with a few upgrades to the rooms but I do have to say that the new office staff had me concerned as how they were treating the paying guests, when you check out of your room you are also to check off the property as well, this in the past years has NEVER been a problem with the retired managment the guests always used the outdoor facilities to still enjoy the Atlantic Bay Resort attractions. We will miss this resort but we will be moving on to fine new accommodations and Management that will give us better treatment, it is a shame they will be losing alot of good paying clients. Good luck!!!

Thank you for noticing some of the upgrades that were added to the Tropical Efficiencies. The staff worked very hard to make sure that the guests had everything they needed to enjoy Labor Day weekend. Upon checking in you mentioned that you were a property manager and was very understanding about the new simple rules that Atlantic Bay has set in place for the guests. When a resort has been in bankruptcy for the last 2 years rules and regulations fall off track and being a property manager I am sure that you understand that. I did not ask that you vacate the property at check out. I understand that you were here for a guests birthday party for the weekend but bad behavior cannot be tolerated under any circumstance. We do value your business and hope that you will come back and see us again on your next venture to the Keys.

So in the keys on labor day weekend. No vacancy signs everywhere. Drive by the sign and made a u-turn. The manager at the front desk Kelly was wonderful. She saved the day. Gave me a room they had saved up. The price was half of anything that was available. To my surprise the rooms were like a little studio apartment. Full size fridge ,stove, dishes. The pool view of the ocean was awesome. Little tiki huts to sit in the shade and even outdoor grills . Highly recommend this resort , so stop in and see Kelly.

We checked in late but Kelly [--] took care of everything. She really went out of her way to make our short vacation special. The beach was beautiful, the location was exceptional. We hope to return soon - it is a hidden gem.

I was thinking of what to get my girlfriend for her birthday. It was Thursday, her birthday on Saturday.
I remembered a friends recommendation of a place in the Keys (Atlantic Bay Resort). I called and spoke to Kelly. I told her I was looking to come down for the weekend to celebrate the birthday. She took care of the rest.
We showed up early Friday evening. Our cottage was fantastic - overlooking the bay. Kelly had the place looking great with a bottle of wine, some roses, then some flowers and the towels in a fancy heart shape.
We dropped the boat down the ramp - a few yards from our cottage . Parked the trailer - 50 yards away. And the rest is history. Sunsets, relaxation, etc...
Fantastic place, fantastic service, fantastic weekend.

I came down with my 13 year old son for a few days to snorkle and relax. We could not have been happier with the accommodations. The room was clean, there was a beautiful patio to eat our meals on, there was a kitchenette area so we didn't have to eat every meal in a restaurant. The private beach was gorgeous and we could snorkle right there -- there was tons to see! The staff could not have been more awesome -- attentive, responsive and fun to talk to. I would recommend this to anyone. And we will definitely be back!

This lobster season we wanted a change of pace from Marathon and decided to stay here. Best decision we could have made. The resort is clean with a beautiful view of the water, The grounds, rooms and pool were great to enjoy friends and relax. The new staff was very attentive and accommodating at all times. We are planning on returning several times this year.

Room Tip: Go the few extra dollars and get an efficiency with a porch. Excellent for relaxing outside.

This is a perfect getaway in the keys. We met the new owner upon our arrival and he was very accommodating. He and his staff wanted to ensure we had an enjoyable stay! He has made many positive changes to the property since our stay last year and he promises there is more to come. We stayed in the efficiency apartment. The efficiency is a perfect size for a weekend or a weeklong visit with your friends or family. The rooms are very clean and stocked with all of the essentials. If you’re missing anything, the very friendly staff is quick to accommodate you. The grounds are well maintained and the water view is outstanding! The pool is a nice size, clean and inviting. Tiki huts and lounge chairs are situated on the water’s edge, and are a perfect place to relax, enjoy a cocktail and watch the sunset. Bring your boat, as there is plenty of space to dock and park your trailer. We were very pleased with our stay and will be booking our trip again next year!
