BEDBUGS, loud non-sound-proof rooms, run-down grounds, and rude and uncaring Front Office Manager and General Manager. This is so unacceptable that it's only fair that people know. Made reservations through the 800 number provided online… Made arrangements for adjoining rooms and top floor. Upon arriving we were informed that the facility doesn't even have adjoining rooms and we were put...

My stay at Banana Bay was for the most part good. The room was fresh and recently renovated. When we got there, there were stains in the sink, and the curtains had stains as well. The shower was quite odd, having only a small SEE THROUGH glass pane. The water went all over the floor because the glass was not...

This place may have recently renovated rooms, but the rest of the it is trashed! Pool is filthy, both inside and out. The so called bar tender hangs around with her friends like they are guests! Smoking and drinking and talking about their person exploits on the island. Very gross! I had to move to the other side to avoid...

The room, view and staff were excellent. Location was good, convenient to restaurants and shopping. The only problem we had was some of the electrical outlets in the room didn't work. The very best thing was the view from the room and even from the bed. Loved it.

We were looking for a reasonable hotel on the Keys and we're pleased with this one. I booked a king room with balcony and was happy it looked out on the back of the property and the water. We enjoyed the view and the privacy it gave us. The room was very nicely renovated with a modern shower and plenty...

Partially renovated. Restaurant has been closed for 5 years. Construction dumpsters in parking areas that have been there for awhile. The grounds were totally unkempt & rundown. 2 tennis courts were overgrown & full of weeds. The renovation that had been completed was cheaply done & in need of touchup. The shower leaked all over the bathroom, the paint had...

At first, we were given a room that didn't have a balcony and was in the least desirable part of the resort. Kerstin Harman, the manager, moved us to a nicer room by the marina. From the outside, this place isn't anything exciting, but it is recently remodeled and is beautiful on the inside. Nicely decorated and very comfortable. I...

We were surprised that this hotel was as good as it was. The price on Hotels.com for this property was much less than others in the area, and we feared that might mean it was a clunker. But no, it was fine! The room itself was lovely - recently re-done with a very chic, Euro, city vibe. Neutral colors with...

Had no idea the resort was under renovation at the time of booking. Grounds are very unkempt; pool area not well maintained. Women's bathroom at pool area was closed and being demolished with a jackhammer....a rundown structure by the pool was also being torn down. Not a very relaxing environment when my husband and I went to the pool. Our...

I think Banana Bay is overselling themselves when they say it is "resort". The rooms are VERY nice, beds were very comfortable and the bathroom is clean and modern. However, the pool is very small and the large trees around it drop lots of leaves. Hot tub is also small and had lots of leaves. Tennis court is one court...
