... facilities. There are 2 beaches at Bahia Honda - Sandspur and Calusa. Sandspur is the better one. Forget Calusa as it has a view of the highway and therefore is noisy. The campsites, which are located in Sandspur, are known to be buggy no matter what time of the year you visit and also hot especially during the summer season. The campsites' location is right on the beach. They are in fact a great place to ...

... are like that. We ate well and celebrated.

Later in the morning, we moved to the Jolly Roger Travel Park on Marathon Key. It was a drive of about forty miles and went smoothly. I must say that it's good to be back in a Home with Wheels. We'll be here for seven nights. There are lots of places to visit and much to do. Lynn has the plan.

I'll be keeping in touch...

... that?). They took them over to the park (yes, Marty to our park) and ate them. Mom said eating the first fish taco was like going up to Heaven then coming back alive (the world will so allow it...). The mural over the table confirmed it (see pics). Dad on the other hand was complaining about the pepper sauce he had added to his fish taco and Mom being the angel that she is traded her second taco for his second taco thinking she ...

... of our round the world trip has definitely been meeting so many young and young-at-heart people with hugely diverse backgrounds.

We have had an incredible time in the Florida Keys. Their remoteness and single-road access very much reminded us of Cornwall but the heat, sun and sea were absolutely Caribbean! This was a very special part of our trip and we were so glad we made the time to visit this beautiful part of the ...

... Republic! See, I'm bagging your stuff up already."

Bless him, we'd already decided we were going to buy the stuff at full price but he shaves of nearly $40 and insists on celebrating by pouring us shots of Grey Goose vodka which we all knock back in celebration. You don't get that on Oxford Street.

So we stagger out into the night and roll back to our hotel with a bellyful full of pie, a skinful of vodka and a few bags of shopping to boot. I think we're going to like it ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Banana Bay Resort and Marina Marathon

    Wonderful Wedding at Banana Bay Marathon

    from

    Banana Bay was everything we hoped for and more. We planned our wedding over the internet and everything went perfectly. Everyone was so nice.

    Fantastic wedding

    from

    We got married on the beach in Banana Bay, Key West, it was a dream come true. We were the only ones to get married that day, very private and peaceful. the wedding co-ordinater, David, did everything we wanted. I had my hair done by Dolly Parton's hairdresser, we got married to the music of our choice and we dined in the most fantastic resturant on an island of it's own. We stayed in Banana Bay for 14 days and it was so fantastic we never left Key West. What is nice about Banana Bay is that it is adults only and it is a small resort so it is very quiet and the rooms are fantastic, i've never slept in a 4 poster bed so big! i would recommend this place to any one looking for a quiet holiday and especially to couples who want to get married or to renew their wedding vows. It is a wonderful place and my husband and I shall definatley return.

    Staff friendly, property needs renovating

    from

    We just returned from Banana Bay. Front foyer in our building smelled musty. "Beach" is piled rocks with sand sprinkled on. Staff was friendly, helpful, but the place is run-down. We won't be back.

    Paradise

    from

    We loved Banana Bay and hope to return next year. Everyone was helpful and friendly. Only thing, we had breakfast every morning and only once did we have bananas. We truly enjoyed our stay at Banana Bay.

    Not What I Expected

    from

    Well, if you're looking for mediocrity, the Banana Bay is it. When we arrived we got a not-so-warm welcome from the staff, both of whom appeared bothered that we were even there to check-in. The room itself was a typical hotel room complete with a king-size bed held up in the middle with pieces of lumber. The "bayside view" which we had paid extra for was nicely obstructed by trees and shrubs. The "beach" is nothing more than a few chaise lounges within a 200 sq ft. area... What we did like about the place was the well-maintained pool. I think next time we go to the Keys we'll try a different hotel.

    Banana Bay Resort exceeded our expectations

    from

    My husband and I went to Banana Bay Resort in Marathon for our honeymoon, May, 2003. I liked the way it looked on the internet and booked it with no other references. When we got there we were so impressed. The rooms and grounds were even prettier than shown on the website. Very, Very clean. Everything was immaculate from the rooms, hallways and the grounds. The grounds were lush with tropical foliage and colorful flowers. It was well worth every penny.

    Tropical place to be!

    from

    A very tropical place to stay. Actually seems like your entering a jungle! We really enjoyed the resort! Our room was very refreshing and our bed was so very comfortable with a canopy bed. The pool was really nice and good food at the Tiki Bar. The small but nice beach was a nice place to watch the sunset. We would definately stay there again!

    Once is not enough.

    from

    It was out of this world. The service was wonderful everyone at the resort made us feel like royailty. We can't stop talking about what a beautiful time we had. We can't wait too go back. The best part was we were greeted ever day on a first name bases. Thank you Louis, Harold,Chuck,Kate,Diana,Doug,Dolly,Daivd and Milagros. Until next time this is Diana and Victor :)

    Excellent!

    from

    My husband & I were married at Banana Bay, the wedding coordinator was wonderful, she took care of everything even after I changed my mind a couple of times and she did it with a smile. We did all of our arrangements online and via telephone, it was all perfect. The wedding itself was breathtaking and the pictures are gorgious. We were married at sunset on the tip of the island, the sand, the palm trees and the beautiful sunset made our day somewhat unreal....The resort itself was completely relaxing, it's an adult only resort which was great, there was nothing better than spending the hours in the evening sitting at the Tiki bar and watching the sunset. The staff were kind and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. There are so many things to do in the area, its half way to the mainland and half way to Key West.....we had the time of our lives...you will too! Kevin & Kari Eide

    Very nice

    from

    Banana Bay is a very nice place to stay in the Keys. Mostly everyone is very friendly and accommodating. The restaurant is a little 'pricey' but the food is good. We usually had our lunch onsite but went elsewhere for dinner. A real plus is the Continential Breakfast we received every morning poolside. The only drawback is the pool. It is not heated and it is EXTREMELY COLD. Many guests complained about it. We have stayed at Banana Bay three times but this year we are staying elsewhere. We enjoy swimming and lounging around the pool so we have opted for a heated pool for our stay in December at a different resort.
