We had the most amazing time at the Sombrero Resort! I must first thank Francesca for her excellent service and knowledge as she was VERY helpful. ALSO...to Will, resort mananger, for HIS excellent service as he accommodated our request to keep our same condo when we decided to make the Sombrero our "home-base" and booked 4 more nights w/ them.
We seen manitees, eagle rays, and a lone barricuda in the channel right off our balcony, which was amazing. Our condo was spacious and VERY clean. The view we had was amazing as we discovered you can watch SUNRISE AND SUNSET right from the balcony. We also enjoyed having the private carports. The pool was HUGE and clean, w/ a bar right next to the pool. The staff there was GREAT as well.
We CANNOT wait to return....

Pool view or marina view are both so rewarding with spacious room and private balcony. Pool & hot tub are large with a nice outside bar. Not as touristy, and serviceable distance from Key West. My only complaint, is that our stay was limited to one night this time.

During a roadtrip in which we didn't make any reservations until we rolled into a town, the Yellowtail Inn stands out as one of the best deals we found! We stayed for 3 nights and encountered 2 different employees at the front desk, both of whom were laid back and very helpful when asked about local life. One of them also allowed us into an empty suite to do our laundry - for that, he gets bonus points. Maria, the lovely lady cleaning the rooms during our stay, was chipper and a delight to see strolling around the grounds every morning. We were able to negotiate a better rate for our final night, which we tacked on because we loved the place so much. The ocean view is marvelous. Wildlife - like crabs and iguanas - abound.
All that being said, this is no Marriott (which is why we loved it). The room was smallish, but faced the ocean. The AC functioned, the furnishings were quaint, and the porch was the perfect place to spend an evening with a bottle of wine and some cards. Also, the little "cooling off" pool was much appreciated. It seemed small when we first arrived, but it's all we needed.
Marathon was a great, low key home base from which to daytrip and see the rest of he keys, and the Yellowtail Inn was a jewel in an unexpected crown. Recommended for backbackers, families or anyone looking for an under-the-radar experience.

We had a great time! The Marina and ramp was perfect for launching our 15 ft boat, slips are also available, we left it in the water for our stay. Very nice to just jump in and go! The rooms are decent, very comfy beds, freshly painted and being updated. The staff was great, very friendly, and very protective of the grounds, boats, and marina. We will be back! our new favorite place to stay!

In the central Keys Marathon is a relatively new city, though the area has been developed for a while. Tourists flock to Marathon to sunbathe on Sombrero Beach. Fishing and scuba diving are also popular here.
