Very good
"Stay was great. House was ok. The hot water heater connected to guest baths and washing machine didn’t work- there was no hot water. The AC on the first floor would not cool lower that 74- which was a little warm after a day of fishing. But overall enjoyed the stay."

"This is our fourth week renting in 3 years at Marlin Bay. We have noticed an unfortunate downturn in the property based on the following:
1. The home we stayed in 3840 had multiple issues that we addressed with maintenance, not a single issue was resolved besides getting us a new coffee pot. Below were the issues.
A. Hot water heater is only 30 gallon which does not allow for a family of 6 to take showers or baths within several hours. When you spend luxury dollars you expect hot showers.
B. The ice maker is broken and has been broken
C. The service elevator is broken and we were not made aware it was broken EVEN at registration we were not made aware!
D. The tea kettle was broken, totally broken and not repaired

Again, this is our fourth and likely last visit at Marlin Bay. The customer service is not what we expect for the price."

"We booked this at short notice, due to Hurricane Ian damage to our original destination. We had never been to the Keys before, and happened upon the property online. We decided to book because of the dockage for our fishing boat and house that would accommodate four adults and a child. We didn't know what to expect, but were blown away by everything there -- the luxurious home, excellent dockage/harbor, incredible service and beautiful landscaping. The pool was the nicest we have ever used, and everything was carefully maintained. There were too many extras to even mention, and the staff was eager to do anything they could to make us comfortable. We couldn't have been more pleased with our ten days there."

"Having spent over 40 years from the Windward Islands to Nova Scotia on the water. Marlin Bay Resort and Marina stands clearly above a majority if not all the resorts I have ever stayed.
Over the past two years I have spent nearly 4 months, at the Resort and Marina. I have used and experienced every amenity, facility, and service offering the Resort and Marina have on offer. These offerings have included the; rental of their largest home, several marina slips and boat lifts, gym, pool, spa, game room, bar, marina lounge and more.
Marlin Bay‘s facilities across every offering are outstanding. The maintenance, quality, and dedication to providing guests witsuperior stay are a constant, and a high importance to the management and staff. Marlin Bay‘s management and staff throughout the hierarchy are exceptional. Shortly after the moment you arrive the entire staff including the general manager, concierge, security, dockmaster, marina staff, and landscapers know your name, are ever present, and available to support you, and your needs. Our home rental this year was for 28 days, and never once if we had a broken item, or a need for repair, or any service did we wait any longer than an hour or two for it to be addressed. We had the home cleaned 4 times and each time it was immaculate. The quality and level of service is a solid 4.8 to 5 on a 5 scale. Marlin Bay could easily attain a 6-star level rating on a 6 scale if they so desired. Our stay always includes a great deal of cooking, baking, barbequing, and entertaining. The homes are built for precisely these types of activities. The kitchens are fully stocked with all the utensils, pots, pans, glasses, plates, cabinetry, wine cooler, refrigerator, and box freezers one requires in such a facility. The level of detail thought out by the owners in terms of serving guests in these types of rentals is bar-none as good as it gets. The high level of service at Marlin Bay cannot be overstated."

"The resort is beautiful, the immediate surrounding area outside the gates is definitely an area in transition. The home we stayed in was beautiful and we would stay there again. Plenty of room for all of our guests. Main living room/tv area is small not enough comfy seating for a party of 8, but that was only an issue at night if we were watching a game on tv or playing a board game. Otherwise, we were outside enjoying the sunshine. Checking in and out was super easy and texting with the staff was uber convenient. We loved the clubhouse- fitness center, game room, and definitely shuffleboard. Wish the game room was open later than 6: 30. After pool and excursions and dinner it would be nice to be able to play shuffleboard or borrow a game. The hours of operation for the clubhouse were stated as 8am-6: 30pm yet one night I was told while
In the middle of playing my kids in shuffleboard that they had been closing at 6 and they let us stay (it was 6: 15) so could we finish up and leave. It was a little maddening- we paid a lot of money to rent the house, additional money at the bar daily, and were told in check in materials as well as a welcome text that we had access to clubhouse til 6: 30. One staff member in particular was very odd and protective of the game room. One rainy afternoon (3: 15pm) we were playing shuffleboard (we were the only family in the game room our whole trip) and she came out from the office and she said, “we have offices in the back and we have a meeting going on so could you keep
It down?” We weren’t even being loud- just usual game banter between teams and chuckling or commenting on good strategic play. Everyone in my party was older than 16 and we, the parents, were present. The game room was left orderly and just as we found it each time, borrowed games returned, no need to hawk your guests. We were just trying to enjoy our vacation."

"We loved our stay at Marlin Bay Resort and Marina. The property was beautiful and staff were very professional. There were a few items I wished were different. The checkout time (10am) and check in time (4pm) were not flexible and both times were problematic. The other issue was the extremely high fee for cleaning. We were paying rack rate for the house (over $1K per night) and a $480 cleaning fee was excessive."

Always greeted with a smile and happy to help with anything you needed. Especially enjoyed Joeys company at the pool bar. Had a great wave runner ride with Big Kahuna and watched the sunset from the water - something we'll never forget. Paddle boarding and kayaking with Better Than Most. Sonesta beach for snorkeling. Key West for a day trip. Traveled with 9 of us and the 4 bedroom home was perfect. Thanks Marlin Bay for a very memorable trip. Stock up on the rosè for my return visit Joey!"

"While planning a reunion of sorts for high school friends that hadn't seen each other in years, I was on a search for accommodations that allowed us to have our own spaces, but also offered comfortable (and functional) community space. We found that and MORE at Marlin Bay. In addition to 3840 being BEAUTIFULLY furnished and appointed with all your needs in mind, the Staff is second to none! From the GM, Claudine Williams and Buffalo Williams who run Marlin Bay, Barbara, Lucia (the Concierges), Scott at the bar, down to the Dock Hands, you will see professionalism at it's BEST! The property is immaculately maintained while offering amenities that will keep you and yours well entertained/busy! My goal - "only the BEST for my Besties" was accomplished and CONFIRMED by all my friends! THANKS Marlin Bay - we WILL be back <3"
