We've stayed at Banana Bay several times now. The motel rooms are small efficiencies with stove and full size refrigerator. There's a long pier with good fishing and a very nice salt water pool. It's a very comfortable place to relax and close to a lot of other activities. It's also a great spot for bird watching and dolphin spotting.

We have been going to Banana Bay for 5 yrs now. Love the scenery, restaurants and shopping. My husband can be found at the end of the pier anytime. Have made many friends there. Will continue to go every year. Love Banana Bay.

I recently stayed here because I was in town for business meetings. I was surprised that this area does not have any "chain" type hotels. Anyway, my husband was with me so I felt comfortable here. The rooms are basic. The kitchen is fine. The AC I do not like. The lighting is okay. Just a place to hang out....

Banana Bay is a lovely little property surrounded...

My dad and I stayed for 1 night. We would have stayed longer but plans were changed at the last minute. The rooms are cozy and well equipped. Management is friendly and helpful. The view is amazing. There are numerous places to sit and enjoy the view and weather. Such a relaxing place.

We stayed here last year, had a great time. Rooms were being renovated, but wasn't a problem. We came back same time this year, room was fine, other than bed & plastic mattress pad. Automatic light in bathroom is irritating, who wants the light in your eyes in the middle of night. The reason we won't be back is, people...
