Gas grill available for cooking family dinners. No fighting masses of people for pool or beach chairs. If ever we visit this part of Florida again this will for sure be...

We stayed here two nights, including New Years Eve. It's a great location, and the grounds are awesome. We loved sitting in the room, oceanview, enjoying the breeze and hearing the crashing waves. Our room (a suite) was pricey, but large and lovely. Despite what recent reviews said, we weren't bothered by kids or noise. We had a great experience...

Wanted a place with a local Keys vibe, near the water, with dining and nightlife in walking distance. Glunz hits the mark. Stayed in an ocean facing double on the ground floor. The room...

The property is perfectly located in Key Colony Beach, just minutes from Hwy 1 but secluded from the busier commercial areas of Marathon. We would not visit again during a holiday period due to behavior of children. Pros - Very clean and updated suite. Good value for the location and room size. Most of the staff was helpful and friendly....

Thank you so much for your comments towards the Glunz Resort. We are a welcoming family resort that enjoy watching the joys of children having fun in the sun and parents relaxing. However, at times we can be busier during the holidays as it's an escape time for our larger family groups. We certainly hope that you would try us...

Key Colony is definitely the place to set up in the Keys. Resort was nicely located with easy access to amenities in Marathon without the busyness. Rooms were very spacious with great appliances. Every room has beautiful view of the ocean. Nice sandy beach and clean pools.

5 of us stayed in beach villa #1 - a LARGE three bedroom, 3 bathroom villa right on a small, gorgeous beach in Key Colony Beach on Marathon Key.
