The Gulf View Waterfront Resort remains one of the Florida Keys' best kept secrets. This small Marathon Florida hotel is charming and private. The Dolphin Research Center is a short walk away, and Aquarium Encounters, Crane Point Hammock, and the Turtle Hospital are all nearby.

This was the first time my husband and I have been to the Keys. Our stay at Gulf View was so much fun. This place is awesome. The rooms are spacious and immaculately clean. It is convenient to anything you would want to do while visiting the Keys yet so peaceful and relaxing that after a busy day of sightseeing or fishing or whatever, you are glad to get back to your room. We enjoyed the hotel so much we actually spent a whole day there without going anywhere else at all. With a very nice pool, hammocks, grills, kayaks etc... The staff here is amazing! Jen is truly one of the kindest people you will ever meet and very knowledgeable about the area. My husband and I are planning on going back to the Keys and I can't imagine staying anywhere other than Gulf View Waterfront Resort!

Without a doubt, our stay at Gulf Resort was a 5 star experience. The room was excellent, the views were spectacular and the property lived up to all our expectations. The staff, especially Jen bent over backwards for us. We'll definitely be returning next year. My wife and I loved the proximity to beautiful Sombrero beach and we were only a short drive to Key West. We made sure we were back in our room each evening to watch the sunsets.

Room was clean and up to date. Quaint hotel but loved the setting. Close to everything and Jen was very helpful with suggestions. She made us feel like friends from the beginning. The check in was super easy and we would stay here again and plan to next year!

We were at the resort over Christmas week, and even though the weather wasn’t great, we really enjoyed our time there. My grandparents were with us and really thought it was special that we stayed in the Gulfview suite with such fantastic views of the entire gulf ocean. It had everything we needed and we were able to cook a fantastic Christmas Eve dinner. Staff was super helpful and even gave us a free key lime pie!

Gulf View is a beautiful little resort, just outside of Marathon. I’ve been to many places in Marathon, and this is one of the few that still feels like a unique Keys establishment, as well as having an “Old Florida” vibe. It is older, but has many modern updates. The pool is great, and there are some nice hammocks for lounging in. The front desk gal was very friendly, and the housekeepers seem to take pride in their work. Would definitely recommend if you want to see what the Keys used to be like.

Wonderful resort. Small and intimate but the quality of service was top notch. We loved the pool. Our room was cozy and kids had fun. The views were great. Jen helped us get settled with ease and start our vacation off on the right foot! We will be back.

Great place to stop with family. Spend 5 days here and loved everything. We were greeted by Jen and she was as sweet as could be. We felt like family in a home away from home. The atmosphere was chill and island like just what we wanted. Will recommend to friends

One of the best places I’ve stayed in the Florida Keys! The pool is great and you are not far from the beach at all! Thanks to Jen for accommodating and helping us around the keys while we stayed here! I definitely recommend this place to stay at if you are traveling to the keys!
