Bluegreen Vacations Hammocks at Marathon, an Ascend Resort

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Excellent room and great location. Trying to get dinner onsite was a hassle, but was directed to a wonderful place off site.

Although the entrance to hotel at this time was construction the hotel was very nice. Was a little bit disillusioned with the "private balcony" that looked out at a chain link fence with a piece of JLG equipment. Overall though stay was good. Will recommend to friends.

Great.

liked how easy and comfortable it was to have coffee, breakfast or lunch in room... laundry was available, Had the benefits and comforts of a hotel and an apartment... great location

Very pleasant. A good room with balcony and view of water and island.

WE WERE THERE FOR A SMALL FAMILY REUNION IN THE AREA. YOU ONLY GET SERVICE DAILY IF YOU HAVE A SEVEN DAY STAY. THE ONLY THING REPLENISHED ARE TOWELS. NO COFFEE, NO MAKING THE BED, NO REPLACEMENT OF SHAMPOO OR BATHROOM TOILETRIES. I WAS VERY SURPRIZED FOR SOMETHING IN THIS PRICE RANGE. I HAVE STAYED AT LESS EXPENSIVE AND BEEN EXTREMELY SATISFIED. I COULD NOT EVEN REQUEST SERVICE IF NEEDED. I WAS TOLD STRICTLY, THAT I MUST BE THERE 7 DAYS.

Save yourself a headache, go elsewhere. This is a hotel. You have to go through the main lobby to get to any rooms, this is not Condos like the website says. From their site they advertised a Studio/1 bd rm Suite. Ha-it was a basic hotel room with a toaster thrown on the nite stand. I called orbitz to express my displeasure, and they talked to the hotel who said they would refund the 2nd nite to me. To make a long story short they didn't refund it when i got my credit card bill and after being told 2x they would, the hotel said "No, you don't get a refund for a second nite after all". After i was told THE DAY I CHECKED OUT i would (otherwise i wouldn't have left it empty the 2nd nite throwing my money away.) Very shifty hotel... Also no fishing from hotel grounds due to close proximity to the coast guard station next door. Really disappointing and expensive lesson learned. What can i say nice? The pool was nice, room was clean and the Tiki bar staff was very nice...

This place is unbelievable!!! the rooms are big and beautiful, theres a jet skie, boat canoe and rod rental on laction. great resturants near by (baracuda grill and 7 mile grill a must!) and 30 minutes from key west... definite must stay! Spirit snorkling is right down the street too and if you mention the hammocks you get a discount!

We found our room at the Hammocks more than what we were expecting. We were very pleasantly surprised with our room at the Hammocks! The room was huge and very clean. We will definitely want to stay there again in the future if in the area. We also found the staff very friendly and helpful.

I was concerned that we would be harrassed because it is a timeshare property but nothing like that happened at all. The room was quite large and very clean. The view off the balcony was great. We enjoyed the tiki bar and the staff was very friendly. We will definitely stay again!

The hotel was very clean and well kept. My husband and I enjoyed the pool. The beach area was a bit dirty. We didn't swim in there. They don't have housekeeping every day but they do give you fresh towels and soap. The staff was very friendly and quite helpful if you're looking for activities.
