Excellent resort and marina. Staff was great, Tomas, A, Kathy and Kia the Harbor Master were all great. First rate service and facility. I hope in the future they will include a laundry room for those in the marina.

They even have 5 stars in their logo. It is accurate ! God blessed us with the best slip in the marina ( with Kia’s expertise also or was it April ( she’s an expert too) I just can’t remember who took our reservation! Andrew and Tomas and Brian and Katy and Madison and Buffalo and Jayce ( may have his name wrong -amazing helper I met )were competent and willing to help at any time !!! From the top management to the bottom workers they were all excellent. We had an amazing bartender named Sara. She made being at the bar a fun experience. The drinks were perfectly crafted and worth the price !!! We played with making different kinds of drinks to try! One even made the special for the day !!! We witnessed each person being obviously happy in their work! Kia’s presence and her continual support during our stay made the difference between good and great !!!! The teamwork and pride they have was on point ! The pool was the best ever! Sun, Shade, Deep, or Super shallow areas are available!! As well as umbrellas, music, floats( if pool not too crowded ) and it was not. I had the pool to myself sometimes ! The hot tub was HOT. 104. Like it’s supposed to be and plenty of jets too!!! The slip was perfect. The grounds were impeccable! The daily sand manicuring was fun to watch and experience daily ! The spiral staircase to the observation tower was great. The way the views were captured by the design was awesome. I saw the green flash for the first time ever due to the sunsetting on the water horizon ! Epic ! The entire staff ( sorry if I missed someone - you all deserve recognition ) was helpful and did more than required to make our stay one that we want to repeat and will brag on for life. They cleaned the grills daily and made sure the propane was turned off at the tanks ! Everything you need is within a short walk. We did NOT want to leave! Best deal on pool towel purchases and they are great towels!! Super ship store and captains lounge and the coffee was yummy and the best cups ever! I cannot say enough good things. Try it for yourself. Ask them to give you Dan and Rebecca’s slip!!!! It’s ours for life ( when it’s not being used by someone else living “ the epic dream”

by Gary Z. on Feb 13, 2024
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.

Great marina and awesome staff. Will definitely stay here again.

by Perry B. on Nov 24, 2023
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.

Would be 5 stars with a laundry!

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.
