Facility is very nice. Well-equipped and well-maintained. The only negative is that there was no bartender at the poolside bar for most of the 4 days we were there.

Stayed here Nov 21-Nov 23. Beautifully kept marina. The property is gorgeous, the docks are in excellent shape. We were in the inner basin the water was calm and the views were breathtaking. The staff were some of the most friendly and helpful people you could hope for. The pool area is an oasis with a bar and games area. We can’t wait to return for a longer stay.

My husband and I stayed on our boat in the inner harbor for more than a month. This is the most well-managed marina on the Great Loop. The facilities and amenities were like new; sparkling clean. Barbecues were cleaned daily. The gym and the shower were available from 8am to 6pm daily and the restrooms by the pool were open all the time. Again, spotless. Pool bar served up refreshing drinks from 1pm to 7pm. There are two air-conditioned lounge areas, one in the club house and another in the marina office. The pool. Marlin Bay has THE most amazing pool in the Florida Keys. There’s shallow water for the kiddies to play in and there’s at least 115 feet of lap swimming available. Absolutely loved doing laps every morning in the crystal clear, palm-tree-lined pool. The chaise lounges have plush cushions that are beyond comfortable. Best I’ve ever seen and so well-maintained. I can’t thank General Manager Claudine, and Maintenance Manager Buffalo enough for making Marlin Bay such a wonderful place to stay. We’ll never forget our stay. Teresa Green Eyes the Nordic Tug

Facilities and staff first class

by Bill K. - Verified user on Oct 27, 2021
Beautiful marina and setting. But the best part of this place is the team of people. From the people you deal with on the phone to the folks in the dock office when you check in, everyone treats you great. Best of all is the team of pros they have tending to the docks when you arrive. These guys are absolute pros.

Great staff and beautiful resort!

We stayed in the marina here over the Christmas holiday. The Good: The staff at the resort are all EXTREMELY friendly and courteous. The dockmaster called us the day before arrival to confirm our reservation and get an estimated arrival time. We hailed the dockmaster as we approached, and were promptly met at the dock to help with dock lines and power connections. The facility is one of the cleanest that we've ever patronized. The marina itself is beautiful and well protected. The docks, power, grilling stations, bike racks and other facilities are great. The pool, bar and hottub area are very nice. We were able to enjoy the facilities and still maintain distance from other guests. There are several good dining establishments within walking and biking distance. The Bad: This place was obviously not originally designed to be a resort or transient marina. The dockmaster's office is as far from the docks as one can get and still be on property. There is no food/kitchen on property. There is no ships store or fuel available onsite. The marina shower facilities are locked up in the fitness center, and only available by special request and during business hours. Summary: There was a lot to like about this place, but given the proximity of other marinas that in the area that were really designed for the purpose, we're not sure if we'd come back.

Super nice staff and great amenities.

by Rick Z. on Aug 09, 2020
One of the best marina experiences we have had. The Dockmaster, Brian and his crew were great. They checked on us daily to make sure we didn’t need anything and were awesome when we docked. I recommend this marina whole heartily to anyone who is looking for a marina in Marathon.

Very nice marina. Beautiful fixed docks. Staff is very helpful and friendly. A little bumpy in the outer basin with a north wind and lots of seagrass. Ask for the inner basin if you can. Lots of great eateries within walking distance, Home Depot and Publix less than 1 mile. Also a great longer term spot! Lots of loopers there.

Jose and his team are awesome and the amenities and resort is a class act.

by Kern D. - Verified user on Jun 15, 2019
This was our first time taking our boat to the keys on our way down almost to Marathon had some engine trouble had to come in on one engine our dock master Jose was awesome he came out to meet us and guided us in after his work hours. It was greatly appreciated. This place is a hidden gem absolutely beautiful almost made me regret spending only two night here on my way to key west. The staff was great from the bar tender pool side to lady at check in I was truly impressed I will be back for sure. I plan on spending a week next time. From the service to how clean the entire place was I will truly recommend this place to anyone who wants a quite get away any truly beautiful scenery I give this place two thumbs up without a doubt 👍🏾👍🏾

As beautiful as advertised, amenities are A++ Dockage is good with helpful dock assistants, when approaching marina, it is just east of the Micro Tower, with the Sunset Tower as you landmark upon approach. Laundry is not currently available, but pick-up laundry service available. Pump out located on outer marina, easier if used upon approach or leaving. The is a pump out service vessel that needs to be prearranged. Number of restaurants, Home Deport and Publix (easier bike ride) within walking distance. Looking forward to a return visit
