Very nice updated rooms, no issues with location of room nor anything until the last night! Who closes a pool down for maintenance @ 5pm during your peak time when your guests are ready to relax from a long day of fun! It happened to us on our last night. Plus it was on a Wednesday! Really?? won't go back!

Hi Heather C Thank you for the great comments about the rooms. I do apologize for closing the pool area at 5 pm rather than 10 pm on Wednesday, we had to perform maintenance in the area and could not do that safely with guests in and around the pool. I do hope you give us consideration on your next...

There were a few things outstanding and a few things horrible. The good include quality of bed and pool. The horrible include the unkempt grounds, something dead and rotting outside our entrance, moldy shower curtain, no one manning the tiki bar and ocean access area that was not maintained.

The floors were filthy in the bathroom and living room areas. Had to wear shoes because my feet turned black. The bed was really comfortable. I felt we got the worse room next to the ice maker because we went through booking.com.

Lovely rooms and very comfortable. Good pool but could do with some improvements to the surrounding areas. General improvements to the grounds were being done and need to continue. Didn't affect stay though. Staff helpful.

The Rooms were brand new and very European. Pool was good with little 'tiki bar' available. future improvements include a new 'tiki bar' and hopefully food! Other amenities could use some improvement, but I doubt people stay here to play tennis. Small marina able to accommodate several boats. no real beach to swim off and no real place to snorkel....

Hi 606perryg Thank you for a great review, and the comments about the rooms. We did complete the renovation of the rooms last fall, as many guest have stated they came out very nice with some very neat upgrades. We are working on our food service program and plan to have that up and running in the next 3-4 months....

Banana Bay website showed a beautiful place, the only good thing about it was the rooms were very nice, the pool was dirty and the premises was overgrown. Property was not very clean. The Manager and front desk person were very accommodating. The property needs a lot of work and clean up.

The new rooms are awesome. This place has great potential and they are getting it back up to par. The staff is working vigorously to complete the grounds. The pool is large and the tiki bar is open at times. Love the marina view for sunset. Great location for exploring the keys. Its a smaller hotel, which we prefer.

Spring break with our young teenagers. The website for Banana Bay paints a much rosier picture then reality. We'll never stay here again, so my comments r intended to help these folks improve, not to get any future discounts or whatever.
