If you are cycling in the keys, prevailing winds are at your back heading to Key West, but obviously working against you on the way back. So we decided to take 3 days to come back, rather than the 2 to go down. Finding a place 1/3 of the way was a challenge, as there is not much available. Dolphin...

Beautiful water views, good location in the Florida Keys, clean rooms, fresh paint, cute screened in porch. That being said, The structure of the buildings are old and just need to be torn down and rebuilt. The owners have done everything they can to make the rooms as nice as they can with out really addressing the problems. Our room...

Let's start with the positives. The owner was lovely and let us in real early the room we had (habiscus 3) was clean but very very tired. Toiletries were lovely and it had been painted but the furniture was very poor.

My husband and I did not stay here however we fueled our boat each day at their facility . The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The pumps had easy access and the store stayed stocked during the busy lobster season. This location also has non ethanol fuel for about a $1.00 more a gallon.

Convenient stop to gas up but very narrow. Beware of clerk at cash register at marina gas station. She is a poor representative of customer service for marina. During the last 5 years we've been coming to this marina every summer & she has always been rude and nasty to our family. This despite our efforts to be friendly and...

Visited this area for work, but brought my dad so he could fish. He absolutely loved it. The rooms are not overly modern but they are perfect for a quick getaway. Beach is nice, people in the shop are friendly and accommodating.

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...
