Review Summary

  • Large family dining table
  • 2.5 bathrooms in each unit
  • On-site marina with wet slips and dock master

Bottom Line

The Coral Lagoon Resort & Marina has 25 airy, cheerful cottage units that dwarf typical hotel rooms. They're tasteful and homey, with a tropical color palate of yellows, greens, and blues; full kitchens; porches; and high-tech amenities including flat-screen TVs with cable, DVD players, and iPod docks. Its location on Marathon makes it popular with sport fishermen, and the property's marina make it especially convenient for guests with boats. The lack of services makes it a better fit for do-it-yourself travelers, however; those looking for more pampering and less space should head to Cheeca Lodge on Islamorada.

Location

Located in Marathon, a strip of islands south of Key Largo in the Florida Keys

Map of Coral Lagoon Resort and Marina

The Coral Lagoon Resort & Marina is located in Marathon at the southern tip of Long Point Key, a few minutes' drive from The Florida Keys Marathon Airport. It faces the Atlantic but has no on-site beach (only a pool); it's a five-minute drive to the nearest stretch of sand.

Even though Marathon was long viewed as a stopover on the drive to Key West, the city holds its own with plenty of restaurants (lots of seafood, of course), museums, beaches and a bevy of options for the active set. Casual travelers may even prefer Marathon's less rambunctious vibe over Key West's crowded streets.

Marathon is a major sports fishing destination on both the gulf and Atlantic sides, especially during the annual tarpon tournaments in April and May. Impressive reefs make it very popular for diving and snorkeling. Those looking to stick to dry land can make use of golf courses and decent biking options.

  • 10-minute drive to Florida Keys Marathon Airport
  • 130-minute drive to Miami International Airport
  • 5-minute drive to Key Colony Beach
  • 9-minute drive to Crane Point's museums, parks, nature trails and bird sanctuaries
  • 10-minute drive to swimming with dolphins at the Dolphin Research Center
  • 26-minute drive to snorkeling and beaches at Bahia Honda State Park
  • 70-minute drive to Key West
