Isla Bella Beach Resort

Marathon Key, Florida Keys

The hotel

Far from Florida’s frenetic pace, you’ll wind through tropical landscapes to reach this relaxed 24 acre beach resort, where five fabulous pools and a mile of waterfront await your arrival. The guest rooms have a contemporary beach vibe – not that you’ll be looking at the décor, with every room guaranteed an ocean view. As you step onto the sands, you’ll find dunes, hammocks, and tiki huts, as well as a fishing pier and water sports. And even the dining maximises on the seaside setting, with the wood-fired pizzas of Il Postino competing for attention with ‘burgers on the beach’ and that obligatory ‘surf-inspired’ Keys menu.

Lovely property and beautiful accommodation. We stayed in a two bedroom/two bath with covered porch, Room 105. Beds were very comfortable and one of the bathrooms had a tub. All linens and bathroom amenities were upscale. Check-in was especially nice with the complimentary sparkling wine. The drinks at the bar (rum runners for us) were strong and delicious. Unfortunately, the weather was cold and windy during our stay and as Floridians we didn’t use the pool areas, but saw many very pale northerners in bikinis sunning themselves😀. Know ahead of time that with. $30 resort fee, $20 parking fee along with bed tax and regular tax, that your daily room rate will be much higher than advertised. Still a bargain for this beautiful resort. Read less

From the moment we arrived at the resort gates, we were welcomed with genuine and professional staff. My husband and I came for a relaxing weekend getaway, just the 2 of us without our kids. The resort is immaculate (cannot stress how immaculate), clean and absolutely beautiful!! It felt like our own private island, with the most breathtaking views, especially at sunset! You could easily come with family and little kids. The food was delicious - you have options at the marketplace for quick snacks/sandwiches and amazing coffee and gelato. The on site restaurant, Il Postino, was also fantastic. There are also plenty of restaurants with fresh caught/local fish just outside of the resort for other options. Are only complaint was no microwaves in the rooms. We can’t wait to return! Read less

We were here for a girls trip and Isla Bella was fantastic!! From the spa (which was incredible service), to the pool, to renting a boat for fishing, it couldn’t have been any more convenient. It’s very self contained, so not much need to leave the location!! We can’t wait to return!! Also, the sunsets are incredible!
