What Our Guests Are Saying
We are proud and honored to have our two properties, The Retreat and Sunset Point at The Retreat, boast over 50 combined 5-star reviews, and rated excellent. Below are some of the lastest reviews.

Rick F. We spend one week with our entire family of 12 at Marathon. The house is exactly as advertised and yes as the video says once you are there you won't want to leave. Ruth was fantastic and the best chef ever! I personally gained 5 pounds while under Ruth's culinary care. Make sure you do at least one meal prepared by Ruth to complete a perfect stay. We played more games and had more fun than we ever would have had at a resort. I would highly recommend this stay to anyone, it is amazing! - Rick F.

Marc R. Terrific for families, business groups and friends. Every space is perfectly thought out from the Westin mattresses to the TVs near every couch, chair, pool, bar and conference room. This home has more refrigerators than I could count. We appreciated the extra touches, the boat, kayaks and paddle boards. Ruth is a wonderful host and phenomenal chef. Thx to Ruth, Luis and crew. - Marc R.

Barry K. We did our company leadership planning here and it was perfect for the 11 of us for the three and half days we were there. The entire property is first class and has all the amenities of a five star property. Everything you need is there and if you do need anything Ruth was there to take care of it. She is the ambassador, chef and concierge with a little help from Krista to make sure the experience is one of a lifetime. A huge thanks to them for making our visit exceptional. My team loved it and have already placed a hold for next year. - Barry K.
