Let There Be Brunch

Drop your bags at the front desk and head straight out for a delicious Florida Keys breakfast. Our pick? Juice Paradise across the street for authentic Cuban-style café con leche.

Meet the Locals

From parrotfish and yellowtail snapper to manatees, the Keys waters are full of sea life. Rent a snorkel and dive in to see them in their natural habitat, or visit the Turtle Hospital next door and feed the residents.

Life’s a Beach

Relax on powder-soft sands or enjoy a swim at our beach. Feeling more adventurous? No visit to the Florida Keys is complete without watersports. From jet skis to kayaks, take to the open water for an adrenaline hit.

Take a Bite in the Bay

Rated the best restaurant in Marathon, there’s no better place to dine than at our very own Butterfly Café. From fresh seafood to our famous Key Lime Pie, you’ll enjoy the taste of the Florida Keys with every mouthful.

Experience the Golden Hour

Marathon’s home to some of the most incredible sunsets in the country, and our Tiki Bar has front row seats. Sip a handmade cocktail as pink, blue and orange hues dance across the skies.

Beachfront Bliss

Wake up on the waterfront and enjoy your morning coffee on your beach house porch. We recommend grabbing a delicious pastry from nearby Sweet Savannah’s and enjoying it as you watch the gentle waves.

Dive into the Day

There’s no feeling like a morning dip, and we have three pools for you to choose from; escape to paradise at our lagoon-style pool, relax in tranquility at the adults-only pool, or discover our small tropical garden pool hidden among the trees.

Your Trip’s Nearly Over…

But you have still time for one or two more sights to see. From Crane Point to the Dolphin Center, check out more Marathon attractions – or perhaps challenge the family on our putting green by Nicklaus Design!
