... about made me jump out of my skin! Scared the bejesus out of me. As I
watched him gracefully glide away, I was grateful for the close
encounter, though it had been shocking at first. I paddled the rest of
the way back to the campground , passing Hayes lounging on the point. I
pulled the board out of the water, tired and happy. Later that afternoon
we drove up to Mr. Lobster to buy lobster and stone crabs. We had a

... afternoon of Monday, June 4, so we decided we'd drive to Key West for dinner. Of course, as we got close to Key West, the dive operator called to say no one else signed up to dive in the afternoon, so can we dive in the morning. Well, of course we want to dive, so yes we'll be there in the morning. So we had dinner at Conch Republic, or something like that in Key West. Nice, but typical tropical restaurant, on the water by the harbor. Had ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Hammocks at Marathon
Good location but this Hotel is a Time Share. We were told we would have a room with a kitchen, we did not. We had a basic Hotel room with two double beds, a small round table with two chairs and a mini fridge.
We booked in advance after doing much research online. We ended up paying 187 total for one nite which sounds a little pricey but it was well worth it, especially during hi season. This is actually a time share place so all rooms had kitchens and living rooms (which we really didn't need for just one nite). Very clean, friendly staff and helpful concierge. The only downfall was that there are no official 'non-smoking' rooms but we lucked out and got a good one anyway. Nice pool, nice tiki bar. We probably could've gotten something cheaper but I'd rather pay a little more for a nice place and not be in one of the many run down mom n pop places. We watched the sunset at Sombrero beach and we ate at Castaways which was good but expensive and very 'keyzie' (local) which was pretty cool. Highly recommend.
A Great Place to Stay!!
I wanted a place central to the Keys. I chose it based on the comments of others on this board. I was not disappointed.
The room turned out to be an apartment fully equipped. It was HUGE and comfortable and reasonably priced. The maid even ran our dishes thru the dishwasher.
Had a great time. Would recommend!
Just spend 3 nights at the Hammocks at Marathon. We had a great visit and enjoyed the resort. The rooms were clean and spacious. The pool was also clean and provided an awesome view of the Gulf and the nightly sunsets. We also enjoyed the Tiki Bar - the food was very good, and it was convenient not having to drive to a restaurant. Our only negative was that the activity schedule was not current nor correct. It was disappointing to our children when we went to attend a function, and the incorrect time had been posted.
Great Vacation in the Keys
My wife and I spend a long weekend here and loved it. We will go back with the kids next year. The rooms were large and clean. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. They also have a computer in the lobby you can check your email on. What a GREAT idea! It is about 1 hour drive to Key West and 2.5 hours to Miami. Don't pass on this vacation.
Would do it again!
This is a nice property. The room was as advertised, spacious, nice view. The staff was knowledgeable and had a great attitude. If they could have made the weather better it would have been perfect! They have onsite boat rentals and charters, a tiki bar and only a bar type restaurant which is fine because there are many great restaurants in the area, like the Key Colony Inn.
After seeing some of the competing choices in the Middle Keys we were glad we made this choice.
Lovely place to stay
Nestled in the heart of the Florida Keys, near the 7 mile Bridge. My husband and I stayed here over Christmas. The staff were very warm and friendly, the room was very clean, comfortable and attractive. The grounds truly capture the tropical atmosphere with a tikki bar and pool in the back, fronting the gulf. It would be very difficult to say anything negative about this place. We will defintely be back.
Great hotel - no longer a Best Western
We stayed here twice in '03. This was a nice, clean, new hotel. It seems to have become a timeshare under the name of "Hammock's of Marathon" due to open in July, '04, but only to timeshare owners. I understand there may be some rentals in the future at $250+ a night. Too bad.
My family loved this hotel. We had a great time.
My family went to this hotel in the spring of this year for spring break. The people working here were great. They were very kind and always said hello when you came through the door. My family really wants to come back again, and if we can next year then we will be back.
Thanks for a great time. The rooms are clean, the pool feels great and the Tiki Bar out back is really relaxing.
Beautiful view, good value
Stayed 2 nights here in December 2003. This property is very well kept, with nice size rooms and an attractive pool area. The continental breakfast is above average, an excellent fresh fruit salad was served both mornings. Ask for a bay-view room, these also overlook the pool area. The private balcony allowed us to sleep with the sliding doors wide open (didn't see a single bug!) and fall asleep to the sounds of rustling palms - almost reminded me of Maui! Tiki bar closes at 7PM! My only complaint - in an attempt to give as many rooms as possible a view, we walked endless hallways to get to our room from the lobby, ask for a close one if this is a problem.
