When we first got there, check-in was quick and easy. Then we got to our room and had beach towels, but no bath towels. We used our beach towels as bath towels, which wasn't a huge deal. We also didn't really understand the shower.... there is only half a door so water gets everywhere. You can see visible water damage from where the water leaks even out of that part of the bathroom into the closet. Then the WHOLE time we were there, room service didn't come to our room once. had to end up calling and asking for bath towels and toilet paper aftee 3 days because no one ever came. We also had blood stains on our sheets and duvet, which was unsettling, especially since they didn't get changed for our whole 5 day stay. The wifi also didn't work the first two days we were there. We got the "breakfast" one day, but it's a box with a juicebox and yogurt in it, so we opt'ed out of that the rest of the stay. Regardless of all of that, we enjoyed our stay and all of the amenities. It was perfect for what we were looking for, location, and price. I'd recommend it, especially for a long weekend type of stay.

Hundreds of BUGS in the room. Bugs in the wall, bed, and my luggage. Not a resort. $70 resort fee, basically for the crappy pool. Beach was smelly, with rock and 12" water. Tennis court, horseshoe pit were filthy

Dear guest, Thank you very much for the review. I want to apologize for the issues you had in your room as well as the property as a whole. I am not sure what the bug issue is as we do not typically hear about that, but I will definitely look into this. We are getting ready to go through our next renovation here soon. I hope you give us another chance in the future. Thank you again,

Banana Bay was an odd mix of recently renovated rooms and elements in a sad state, e.g. the pool which had seriously corroding concrete along the edge of the pool. The staff was nice and helpful, but was understaffed so the rooms were not as clean as they should have been. There really is no beach access. However, if you have a boat you’ll be thrilled with the marina.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the room as well as the staff. The elements in a sad state should be undergoing renovation here shortly so hopefully we can get that taken care of sooner than later. We try our hardest here to make sure everything is well maintained and especially clean. I hope you come back and see us next time you are in the Keys. Safe Travels
