The property is beautiful and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. Sunsets and sunrises were extraordinary! The room was spacious, clean, and had a fabulous view of the ocean. The town of Marathon itself is rundown and we didn't want to explore it. The resort is an hour drive from Key West. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The only issue we had was a lack of notice that the restaurant on site was closed for a private event on Friday. Messed up our plans! Never did dine at Mahina.

I loved the resort. Things were very pricey. What I didnt like is when I wanted a pot of coffee delivered to my room they only gave me to go cups. 30.00 for 4 cups of coffee is beyond ridiculous.The four seasons is cheaper.

The resort was nice and clean. Not very big, which we liked. The food was good but when you pay high prices for food you expect it to be better than good. We received daily text from the resort about the daily activities. That was nice. They had things for our kids to do. The resort doesn’t go above and beyond if that’s what you’re used to; the only two things I ask for was milk and a postage stamp, and I got neither.

We look forward to hearing from you and re-earning your trust in our resort.

The property was beautiful although it did not have a proper beach nor did they have a jucuzzi. We had a couple of cold days where it would have been nice to use. Also, we had a bottom floor unit which we requested so we could walk out to the pool, bar and restaurant however we tracked in quite at bit of sand. Housekeeping never vacuumed the carpet. We did not get a re-supply of coffee or cups. The air was not working for a day. We were locked out of our room for an hour before someone came to replace the batteries in the door lock. The food and beverage were much too expensive. They tack on a 20% gratuity which they didn't tell us about and until we figured that out, we were double tipping. Annoying. All in all, the experience was not worth the expense of staying there. Would not recommend this property.
