The room was nice, but the place was nigh impossible to find. Sign was hard to see from the road. While the room was nice, the facilities were a bit of a bummer. We faced a hedge - and right beyond the hedge was a filled-to-the-brim dumpster. Not high on the 'charming' quotient.

For 3 nights we stayed in Reef 1 Cottage and loved it. There were 3 of us and the clean cottage was the perfect size. One bedroom with a queen sized bed for 2 and one pull-out couch for the 3rd person. We had a big fridge, and sink and a stove and microwave and used all those to cook...

The location is wonderful and it has a nice beach front. The Marina store is great and has all your needs for boating. When renting a suite with a kitchen you expect to at least have an oven to cook in but there wasn't one, There was a cook top, a microwave, a Toaster and a refrigerator. We stayed here...

We loved our stay at Dolphin Marina & Cottages! We stayed in the Reef 1 Cottage and although it wasn't on the water it was very lush and private. This proved to be beneficial to us because in the evening it was really windy, but in our little patio area, it was completely calm. The cottage looked exactly like the...

We had a great family trip to little torch key! Dolphin marina & cottages took great care of us! The boat could stay in the water so we could get to the fun every minute! Great bait, fresh water and ice! Thanks we will be back!

The only positive thing about this dump is the boat ramp. The rooms and cottages are beyond terrible in all areas including being just dirty. Do not even consider staying in this over priced poor excuse of a "resort".

For a guys fishing weekend, this place is just barely barely barley OK. To bring your family here, I suggest you stay home or fake an illness. $250 a night for an old dump. Old and stained towels, stained couches, Crusty stuff on the remote, rusty and dirty toaster. don't believe me, look at the attached pics. A little scary...

Cottage Reef 5 was pretty bad. The cottage was old, smelly and was only cooled by window units. The units couldn't keep it cool because it was so hot. Also, I understand there are ants in the Keys but it would have been nice if they would have ran the sweeper to pick up all the dead ones. We will...

Not a quiet family spot. This place is about boat launching and maintenance projects. Noisy machinery ran everyday here. AND the cottage has a major ant problem! The private beach does not exist. NOT WORTH THE MONEY!
