Wonderful time! We had a terrific time at Marlin Bay! The house was beautiful, clean and had every amenity you could think of. The employees do a terrific job with everything you could need or ask for. We will definitely be back!

Upscale property with excellent management We booked this property last minute after the house we had reserved was sold the week before our arrival so we didn’t have much to choose from. We were pleasantly surprised with the property, management and entire experience. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone!

Beautiful House and Resort The resort is beautiful, the immediate surrounding area outside the gates is definitely an area in transition. The home we stayed in was beautiful and we would stay there again. Plenty of room for all of our guests. Main living room/tv area is small not enough comfy seating for a party of 8, but that was only an issue at night if we were watching a game on tv or playing a board game. Otherwise, we were outside enjoying the sunshine. Checking in and out was super easy and texting with the staff was uber convenient. We loved the clubhouse- fitness center, game room, and definitely shuffleboard. Wish the game room was open later than 6:30. After pool and excursions and dinner it would be nice to be able to play shuffleboard or borrow a game. The hours of operation for the clubhouse were stated as 8am-6:30pm yet one night I was told while<br/>In the middle of playing my kids in shuffleboard that they had been closing at 6 and they let us stay (it was 6:15) so could we finish up and leave. It was a little maddening- we paid a lot of money to rent the house, additional money at the bar daily, and were told in check in materials as well as a welcome text that we had access to clubhouse til 6:30. One staff member in particular was very odd and protective of the game room. One rainy afternoon (3:15pm) we were playing shuffleboard (we were the only family in the game room our whole trip) and she came out from the office and she said, &#x201C;we have offices in the back and we have a meeting going on so could you keep<br/>It down?&#x201D; We weren&#x2019;t even being loud- just usual game banter between teams and chuckling or commenting on good strategic play. Everyone in my party was older than 16 and we, the parents, were present. The game room was left orderly and just as we found it each time, borrowed games returned, no need to hawk your guests. We were just trying to enjoy our vacation.

Marlin Bay Resort and Review We loved our stay at Marlin Bay Resort and Marina. The property was beautiful and staff were very professional. There were a few items I wished were different. The checkout time (10am) and check in time (4pm) were not flexible and both times were problematic. The other issue was the extremely high fee for cleaning. We were paying rack rate for the house (over $1K per night) and a $480 cleaning fee was excessive.

Spring Break Get Away Our stay at Marlin Bay Resort & Marina (#3840) was fantastic! We had a beautiful view to enjoy while having our morning coffee or evening cocktails! Our daughter and friends joined us and there was plenty of space for the girls to hang out together, staying up all hours watching movies while my husband and I enjoyed going to bed early. We loved the pool, hanging out by the bar and walking to dinner at the local restaurants! We can&#x2019;t wait to return next year!

great place! Great unit, plenty of room for 10. Resort is very well managed. Thought it was nice that they moved games outside since the game room was closed due to restrictions. Kids loved the warm pool temp.Some appliances not working so they brought us an extra frig. Very accomodating.

Only the BEST for my Besties <3 While planning a reunion of sorts for high school friends that hadn't seen each other in years, I was on a search for accommodations that allowed us to have our own spaces, but also offered comfortable (and functional) community space. We found that and MORE at Marlin Bay. In addition to #3840 being BEAUTIFULLY furnished and appointed with all your needs in mind, the Staff is second to none! From the GM, Claudine Williams and Buffalo Williams who run Marlin Bay, Barbara, Lucia(the Concierges),Scott at the bar, down to the Dock Hands, you will see professionalism at it's BEST! The property is immaculately maintained while offering amenities that will keep you and yours well entertained/busy!!! My goal - "only the BEST for my Besties" was accomplished and CONFIRMED by all my friends! THANKS Marlin Bay - we WILL be back <3

Lovely home away from home. The house and the staff were immaculate. Our family had a great time. The house was very clean, gorgeously decorated and had high quality furnishings. The staff was very friendly and responded almost immediately to any request. The lighthouse provided beautiful, relaxing views of the sunset.<br/><br/>The only issue was the construction. During our last day the dust and noise were a bit much but we can&#x2019;t wait to see the new expansion.

Thanksgiving in the Florida Keys! Our first time in the Florida Keys, and Marlin Bay, Marathan was the perfect place to be! Accommodations were superb and the staff were lovely. Always greeted with a smile and happy to help with anything you needed. Especially enjoyed Joeys company at the pool bar. Had a great wave runner ride with Big Kahuna and watched the sunset from the water - something we'll never forget. Paddle boarding and kayaking with Better Than Most. Sonesta beach for snorkeling. Key West for a day trip. Traveled with 9 of us and the 4 bedroom home was perfect. Thanks Marlin Bay for a very memorable trip. Stock up on the rosè for my return visit Joey!
