I have only stayed at this property twice, and I will never stay anywhere else, ever again, when I am in Key West.
I have stayed at most of the other new and super pricey hotels. Yes, they are nice, but you are paying more for the brand and not the experience (IMO).
I stayed at the Blue Marlin for vacation in July 09. It is an older place, but they have remodeled. The rooms are spacious and CLEAN!!! And the room is pretty sound proof. With the pool being located in the middle of the property, it can get unstandably noisy with all of the fun being had, but in your room, you cannot hear it.
In June 2011, we made the decision to get married in KW. And I made sure that we would be staying at the Blue Marlin for the days leading up to, and after the wedding. The first night we were in town, they were sold out and we had to stay elsewhere (not fun). But once we got to the Marlin, we (and especially me - the bride) was able to relax and enjoy everything.
The pool is a good size and is surrounded by palm trees. Parking is limited, so do not plan on bringing a big vehicle, or multiple cars. The staff is amazing and super friendly (Thank you Marcus for everything!!)
The property is just around the corner from the Southernmost Point, and Duval St. So pretty much everything is within walking distance.
I cannot say enough great things about the Blue Marlin. I cannot wait to come back in the fall!
