Great place

4.0 on April 19, 2014

1st time staying at the Banyan, my wife and I go to Key West at least once a year. Great place, Great location, staff was great. Nice and quiet, yet right in the mix of things. We'll definitely be back. Jack and Doreen Arceneaux, Lafayette,LA

Key West's Best

4.4 on September 13, 2013

We have stayed at the Banyan a couple of times now and don't want to stay anywhere else in Key West. Location could not be better! It is one block from Duval and two blocks from Mallory Square, with great bars and restaurants nearby. Easy to walk everywhere, no need to rent a car. The grounds are beautiful and they are always working on them to keep them that way. Our rooms have been clean and just what we hoped for in a timeshare rental. The pools are lovely and a great place to spend the afternoon resting before heading out for evening fun and sunset viewing. Tiki Bar isn't large, but has had good drinks in the past and wonderful breakfast sandwiches. (Always thought I'd love to run a "small" bar such as this - lots of great ideas for food/drinks :-).) Free coffee at tiki bar in the morning is nice. We have even used the grill to prepare an evening meal. We feel that we have found a gem in Key West that is worth coming back to every year! Can't wait to go back next year! Feels like my "home away from home" except I don't have to cook & clean while there.

A Jewel in Key West

The Banyan Resort is a spectacular property. The studio we booked exceeded our expectation by a mile. It was clean, really spacious and the room we got was newly renovated. It's in a great location..just blocks away from Mallory Square. Customer service was fantastic..Heather made us feel really welcomed. The only thing that confused us is since we discovered the place from Bed and, we expected it will come with breakfast. But this is NOT a bed and breakfast, however, there were plenty of places to eat at..some just around the corner.

The Banyan is amazing!

I feel the need to defend the Banyan after reading a surprising amount of mediocre reviews. If you don't like this place, I feel like you need to adjust your expectations. Amazing porches line these beautiful, varied units. The pools are peaceful, fun, and relaxing. You could not pick a better location on the island. Right next to Duval, Mallory Square, Blue Heaven, Tropic Cinema, and so much more. The units are always clean and pleasant. There's not really a lot of food at the resort. The tiki bar has gone downhill a bit since the longtime tiki bartender no longer works there (hence the 4 stars for service). But the Banyan is an incredible place. Open your doors and soak in the beautiful Key West nights. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else.

Great Place!

We loved the Banyon, it was private quite and relaxing.

Clean and Quiet - Great Location

4.0 on April 01, 2013

The Banyan was better than expected. The location was perfect for us (we were in Key West to celebrate St. Patrick's Day), and it was nice not feeling like we were in a hotel - it was very comfortable (esp. the bed!) and spacious for the most part. I was pleasantly surprised one morning to see that a staff member was on our front balcony wiping off the furniture. "Dining" is rated average because we ate at various establishments as we explored the island instead of at the resort. Overall, I would stay at the Banyan again!

Great location & Tiki Bar!

Three girlfriends enjoyed a long weekend at The Banyan. The location is great! The pool areas & the Tiki Bar were wonderful highlights to enjoy great drinks & breakfast. Lunch & happy hour was also very fun!

Great Place

Location is great - just a block off Duvall and we could walk to everything. Our room was clean and comfortable and the staff was very helpful. Weather did not cooperate so we did not get to use the pool area which was a big disappointment. I would not hesitate to book a room there again.

Great Location

The Banyon is in a great location, close to the action of Duval Street, but in a quieter area. The staff was very helpful, coffee was available at the Tiki Bar each morning, and the beds were very comfy. Also, we were there with friends, so the decks and porches were a great place to meet, plan and chat.

Loved Our Stat at the Banyan!!

We absolutely loved our stay at the Banyan Resort! A beautiful property - obviously maintained so well! The service at the Tiki Bar was awesome! Thanks Eric and Bridgit! Plus it's such a great location - you're close to all the action yet secluded in your own tropical oasis!!
