We couldn’t be happier with our choice to stay at Marlin Bay for the past week. Our group was a family of four plus another couple. The marina is top notch, protected, private and safe. All the amenities you need as an avid boater and fisherman (cleaning tables, grills, hoses, staff). Additionally some excellent viewing areas for the sunsets. Our unit was gorgeous and frankly I wanted to move in forever. Since the resort is so new, and also well-maintained, there is almost no wear and tear to be seen. Floors, carpets, furniture, inside drawers and cabinets is all spic and span. Everything in the kitchen was meticulously organized and had all the tools we needed to cook all week. Very spacious kitchen too. The elevator was a lifesaver when moving in and out with all of our food, coolers and luggage. Comfortable beds, plenty of linens and towels, clean showers and bathrooms. I also loved the pool because it was large and never crowded. I guess max occupancy of the whole resort is about 100 people but it never feels like there is more than 15 around. Our unit faced the bar and had a partial view of pool and marina which was great. Multiple patios, roof deck to watch sunset, laundry in unit and more. You cannot go wrong with this place!!! I can’t wait to go back.

This was our second time at Marlin Bay in as many years and we were just as pleased as the first time. This is truly the best resort in Marathon. You have wonderful amenities, beautiful spaces and endless sunsets. The staff is very attentive, even during COVID times. If you have a boat or will be renting a boat their marina is second to none. We will be making this an annual visit. Great way to spend time with family and friends

The place is great, super clean and well designed! We traveled with our 2 teenagers who had plenty of space to spread out. Decks overlooking the pool and marina were awesome and the customer service at the resort was exceptional! Great experiences (i.e. turtle hospital and Bahia Honda state Park for snorkeling and swimming) and restaurants (Castaways, Key Fisheries, Burdines and the Upper Crust) right within the vicinity!

Slips and docks well maintained and dock crew very helpful. Pool is large, walk-in, clean, and well maintained. Some eateries close enough to walk. Tiki bar large and good service but no bar food nor restaurant on-site. All housing units are rental as are all boat slips. Eastern side slips face an unimproved site under development. Southern and western slips are preferred.

Jack, it was fantastic having so many vessels from St Charles Yacht Club here for your retreat. A pleasure to see all the smiling faces of the crews enjoying each day here at Marlin Bay and look forward to next year's retreat. Thank you for your kind words of the staff and appearance of the resort. Marlin Bay is continuing developing for the future with more to offer in the years to come for our Home and Marina guests.
