Nice hidden gem

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Dec 31, 2023via mobile
We were told about this place by some relatives as a place to stay while visiting the keys. We had an ocean view room. Being in the corner room we could hear the live music coming from Havana Jacks next door, and for us this was not a problem.

We used the paddle boards and kayaks on two different days right from the beach.

Hotel staff has been wonderful.
WiFi has been great.
There is one washer/dryer if needed for 1.75 each.

What a wonderful place! Spotlessly clean, incredibly hospitable & perfectly located. We chose a beachfront room; it was smallish but suited our two day stay. Two steps to the sand, 20’ to the pool and a short walk to the tiki bar,; perfect.
The tiki bar, Havana Jacks was “resort expensive” $8-$15, but the staff was too notch. Bev, the bartender, was super professional and made a great Islamadora Rum Runner. Chris also did a great job as a barback.
The menu could use some fun additions (fish dip, local catch, fry basket) but we liked the pizza, salads, cocoanut shrimp.great music too.
It would be nice to have breakfast available, even a continental; next time, we will bring some pasties. This is a dog friendly place, so expect a lot of them.
Glunz is super mellow & the staff is probably one of the best I have seen anywhere. Cant wait to go back in May.

After being overbooked and cancelled by two hotels we found Glunz! I had a proposal planned and they got me checked in hours early, complementary bottle of wine and friendly people at the front desk. Room was clean, pool along the ocean was nice and fun bar/restaurant on site. Had a significantly better time here than the 4 star-$500 a night we stayed at earlier in the week!!

The rooms are extremely nice, some with great views if the gulf. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Havana Jack's restaurant and Tiki Bar is phenomenal. Matt is a great guy and runs a great crew. Both are a must visit if you will be in the Marathon Florida area.

Room tip: Make reservations well in advance.

What a lovely place to stay! We booked an oceanfront suite. I cannot say enough nice things about this hotel. The lobby is great - they have a cute little sitting area with books and coffee. They provide kayaks, paddle boards and bikes for your use. The manager Nele was the sweetest woman ever and showed us around and was so helpful with everything we needed. The room was clean, the kitchen well equipped. The restaurant next door was awesome with a live band at night. We also enjoyed the heated pool and spa. I just cannot say enough good things about our stay here. What a great location and we will definitely be back.

Room tip: Get the suite that opens right onto the beach. Such a nice amenity to have.
