Both sides could be developed with a few two story townhouse with cut in slips/docks bellow, just like Great Harbour. Then revamp the marina, then the restaurant, pool area, Tiki huts & bars. Add a small shop for food/tackle/gear etc. like Big Games shop. Maybe also work in a great room above the restaurant with ocean/sunset views for larger gatherings, small weddings, fishing tournament award events etc. Rebuild the ocean front hotel with 20 rooms, in two stories as it was before. Run the path out to the SW along the rocky point with daybeds and thatched roofs like some of the cool beach clubs around the world. Last step, dredge the main marina channel more and use the fill to do a half moon around the main beach area for rough seas/wind/storm protection and add 10-12 over water bungalows like they do in Tahiti resorts. All the above separate units would individually feed revenue into the resort as each has its own potential revenue flow based on clients and time of year. With the clubs position for super quick deep water access west and the bank on the other side it would appeal to many "real" boaters/fishermen/divers and adventure type guests and they'd never have to leave the property. Plus the airport is on south with a 5-10 min ride. Yes, major infrastructure is required, power, freshwater, waste on and on and on. Devils in the details but all doable.

Yes I have been thinking about it for years.....Dreaming's free

This new Key Largo resort kinda has the "rough" idea/look I was thinking of-

Anybody have Jimmy Buffets phone number? Lol....Ok, back to work and reality ;(
this is a great vision for the property, but it will take $20MM to build, if not more. would require coordinated airlift service, but it is doable.

this weekend, my wife showed me the bungalows in key largo that you referred to. super nice!
