Isla Bella

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.

If you want to deal with the possibility of a headache then stay here. I have been dealing with a charge on my credit card for months after staying at this hotel for hundreds of dollars and have had 0 help from anyone to get my money back. I have called countless times and get the run around, am told to leave a message. No one is available, call back later etc. I stayed 1 night and only a handful of hours and it was one of the worst decisions of my life afterwards dealing with this. Everytime I call back it's like they can't figure out which person I am calling about the refund so they must get a lot. Read less

When you first arrive the gentleman welcoming you to the resort couldn’t be nicer or more welcoming! The lovely iron verde gates give off a very deluxe vibe. The main lobby is stunning with ocean views , beautifully decorated with sectionals on the porch. A lovely glass of procesco was given at check in. Our room is beautifully decorated with lovely artwork and massive bath, we had a pizza delivered to room late afternoon (delicious) and laid by pool in beautiful white wicker loungers, the marketplace was wonderful items to purchase and the gelato is still calling our name. We came fromOrlando then on to Ft. Lauerdale and there were no complaints in those resorts but isla Bella they were not.Isla Bella was a special treat, we are going to try to stay an additional night and extend our trip (my husband is always anxious to get home) he suggested the extra day , thank you isla Bella this is a must for everyone, will bring my family next time, perfect for just the 2 of us thou.

Isla Bella far exceeded our expectations. The decor in the rooms, every room having a spacious balcony with comfortable lounges overlooking the water, to the beautiful layout of the resort. The staff are friendly & very helpful. A spectacular respite from our day to day lives...a real vacation!
