First time I stayed at the Blackfin Resort. The rooms are cozy and very clean. The only complaint that everyone in our group had was the beds were lumpy and hard to sleep on. Don't know how often the mattress is changed out but they are due. I would defenatly stay there again. The office staff, Mark, was a great... More

We live three hours from the keys so we try to make it to the keys several times a year . The first time we went we just stopped in and asked if they had a room . We stay in a queen size room very basic but clean they do have kitchenettes for more. The sunsets are fabulous here... More

The room was dirty and noisy. I had to run the AC just to drown out the partying going on in the hall way behind the room. Dogs were barking all night in said hallway. Complained to manager who was unwilling to try to resolve any of the issues. Would rather sleep in my car than stay here again.

Were very sorry about all the noise and did call the room making the noise to no avail. Didn't know the room was unsatisfactory till this review. It is unfortunate that some people have no respect for quite time and our rule of not leaving pets alone in the room. More

The hotel was in a great location with many restaurants within walking distance. The hotel does look rough from the outside but I think thats pretty typical of any place with lots of sun and humid, salty air. The inside of the room was larger than I expected and very clean. I really enjoyed watching the sunset from the chairs... More

We loved this hotel, the owner wasd very friendly. The room although quite small was clean and had everything we needed. I liked the way it had been given an individual style with the painting on the wall. Loved the private beach area. Watching the sun go down was fab. This is a lovely, quiet,relaxing place and would recommend it... More

This was our 5th year staying at the Blackfin Resort and our stay was great as usual. Every year there is an improvement made to the resort, the docks are all new and very nice! The rooms are clean. The staff is also very friendly and helpful. The kids went kayaking (available for renting) and had a blast.
