Currently staying here and surprised that happy hour in the poolside bar is ridiculously expensive compared to others I have frequented in Florida... €3.50 for a beer ( not 2 for one or half price) will find a happy hour which Is what it says. Room lovely but object to listening to conversations and cooking in the adjoining room. Soundproofing... More

We planned an anniversary (52 nd) trip to Key West and decided Marathon was about the center of the Keys. We stayed at Sombrero and was pleasantly surprised at the room, pool & Tiki Bar. They are renovating areas but we were never woken up by the workers. The last day we were there, the workers started next door at... More

Friendly and clean! This hotel is in the process of remodeling. Our room was killer! We stayed in a 1 bedroom efficiency. It has all the comforts of home, dishes, silverware, knives, microwave, small fridge. Then it has personal touches like coasters and beachy signs. The decorations were modern and warm. I'd definitely stay here again! Hope theses pics help,... More

Our room was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Property is undergoing renovations so outside had some updates still pending but inside of room was nice. Good bed, which is really important to us. Plan to come back when it is not a holiday.

While the resort looked extremely tired and appeared to be under major construction, but our room was very clean and comfortable, with a few nice touches (such as towels being folded, amenities in bathroom & coffee machine). The reception area was modern and the pool area was comfortable with comfortable sun loungers. This property has potential. The resort is undergoing... More

Nice new docks, nice swimming pool 8ft at drop end. And a nice tiki bar happy hour is from 3-6 newsy priced drinks at happy Hour. Tell them harry sent you. Lots of remodeling is almost done. They have put a lot of ninety into this place. It looks like it will be a awesome place.

We used this resort as a motel stop-over on the way back from Key West. It was clearly being used by locals as a week-end or longer vacation venue, and the poolside bar was very lively. The rooms were being renovated and were quite stylish for the price, and adequately equipped.There are several blocks of rooms and the quieter ones... More

Absolutely horrible! The word "Resort" should not be in the name. Sliding doors barely lock, no light bulbs in any of that lamps, bathtub was hideous. Would not recommend to anyone. Water in the faucet runs all night, there were no soaps or even full size towels when we arrived.

We stayed at Sombrero Resort and Marina for a 5 day fishing vacation. We brought our boat with us. Although there was a seperate fee for the slip, it was nice that our room was literally steps away from the boat (since I asked for a water view). Our beds were extremely comfortable. The pool is nice and there is... More

Many of the rooms have been upgraded and are wonderful, especially with fully furnished condo's more or less, the staff is helpful and the pools and Tiki Bar are a nice touch. Happy hour is fun - cozy up with some locals - it's a lot of fun.
