Easy access to the marina from the bay, friendly staff and clean facilities. If you are trailering a boat to the hotel’s marina be aware that their ramp access in the parking lot is pretty tight to cut the trailer while backing in, even for a shorter boat. Also, not a very long ramp for your trailer if your boat is larger than 20’ you may have issues at other than high tide.

There was grass all over the ramp to launch and load the boat. When loading the boat, we had to rake our own grass out of the way so it wouldn’t get stuck between the trailer and the boat and stain the boat. We were supposed to receive 2 bags of ice every day but no one was ever down to work the dock and no one said anything about getting it at checkin so we never got it. It’s November so technically season so not sure why no one was there to assist in the marina. Otherwise the place itself was nice and quiet.

Visit to Banana Bay Marina was excellent. Had slip 10 which is great as we own unit A202 at MKBC Hope we can secure either slip 10 or 12 next year when we make reservation. Dockmaster Doris was always available and pleasant. Only complaint, it was too hot. Been coming to Keys for over 40 years, lived in Florida for over 70 years and never experienced this much heat. Good time!!

Dock master Doris is a Rock Star⭐️ marina was great and clean. I recommend if your staying at Banana Bay or MKBC, it’s nice to have a marina on resort property.

Doris was great. The Marina is nice and protected from weather. A few of the other boaters were a bit noisy.

We had such a great time and the staff was so nice. The marina was just perfect for a small boat if you’re trailering one down. Rooms were nice and clean as well.

Banana Bay is the very best protected marina on the Gulf side of Marathon. We have been wintering here for 6 seasons and have already made our reservation for next season. For our first few winters, many of the same boats and friends returned. It's a very friendly and social group although Docktails where the dock meets the beach isn't as regular as it used to be to chat and watch the sunset. Our dockmaster has been very helpful and whenever a boat enters the basin, many of the residents scurry over to lend a hand with dock lines. Many of the tenants are very experienced mariners. There's one couple that has completed the great loop 7 times and written two books about it. The dock decking is Ipe wood and doesn't get any better than that. What you pay is all-inclusive. You get electric, water and pump-out. The WiFi is a bit of a challenge in some places. There used to be cable TV but cable boxes are no longer supplied. The large pool is quite nice and kept about 87°. The Jacuzzi is also lovely. Hotel management and policy seems to change more frequently than most places but most of that doesn't affect the marina much. The slips on the east side should be avoided in a North-West to North breeze. There are frequently manatee and lobster in the basin. Home Depot is directly across the highway and the two groceries are within a mile. There are good restaurants nearby. The movies and community theater are an easy walk. There are a fair number of places with live music on the island. Just ask your boat neighbors about where to go for just about anything.

This marina never disappoints…amazing and people…will come back
by Gary H. on Apr 15, 2023
We stayed at the marina from early Jan2023 to Mar 31 2023,
the dock master was great, wifi sometimes sketchy but facilities were great been staying during the winter since 2012, close to everything and great price. No tv but who needs it?
by Everett H. on Mar 09, 2023
The 2 reasons. for this not being a 4 star review are extremely poor WiFi and no access to TV and no accomodations for either. The other aspects of our stay were very good.
