We stumbled upon the Ibis Bay after 4 nights of tent camping with our boat on Key Largo and Marathon Keys. We were ready for a hotel and Ibis Bay was just what we needed before heading back home to Ft. Pierce. We took advantage of the complimentary ride to town and watch the annual night Christmas bike parade. We... More

The cons first. I booked a twin room through Booking.com on arrival we were given a value room with one Queen bed. To upgrade to twin beds would be an extra 20 dollars per night, to have a view that's an extra 50 dollars per night. After paying what I feel to be high prices already for the standard of... More

We had a very nice time at a suite apartment by the Ibis by the Bay. Nice private bay, with hammock, beach chairs... A small restaurant (not the best, just ok). The little school bus is on time and stop at center close by the original lime pie factory!!! No complains! Had a GREAT sunny weekend!!! <3

Nice atmosphere. Sat by the water. I had high expectations, especially after seeing the prices. Although it took three times to figure out how to make a steak "medium", the crab plates and shrimp were not bad. The only real issue was the waiting and hunting. I had to get up and walk through the restaurant to find my waiter,... More

Every night you can sit in a lounge chair on a dock in the edge of this gorgeous bay and watch hundreds of pelicans and other birds sail into a large mangrove island to roost for the night, it is the pelican highway and beautiful to behold. We stumbled on Ibis Bay after spending one night at one of the... More

Ibis Bay is called Ibis Bay because the Ibis birds use the two big mangrove islands in the middle of our bay as their rookery. Along with ibis birds, there are many herons and pelicans too. They fill the sky when they take flight in the early morning and when they return in the early evening. Its so pretty with... More

This is a boutique motel with a lot going for it. From the Cuban styled decor to the enchanted hammocs right on the sand outside your room, to the coral walls, everything was beautiful . What was not up to par was the pool which was not heated.

I am glad you loved iIbis Bay. I like your suggestion too. We are re-decking the restaurant and pool area with beautiful Brazilian mahogany boards. We plan to put in a heating system that will keep the water temp at 82ª. So come and see the changes. You played a role in making them happen. More

I'm a bit spoiled when it comes to vacation lodging because I've been lucky enough to stay in some exceptional places. However, while Ibis Bay Resort was not plush by any means, I have no complaints from our recent stay. The resort itself was an old rundown motel before it was completely renovated. The only things that appear to be... More

I love using my scooter around town. I have a car too, but so long as the forecast is sunny, I zip around at 25mph tops on one of our Yamaha scooters with the wind in the hair (what's left of it!). It's one of the pleasures of being on a tropical island. Its the closest to feeling like a... More

We were here during Christmas week with two of our kids and we all had a great time. The hotel is very kitchy with a retro vibe and we loved it! The view from our room, overlooking the sandy beach and the bay was wonderful. We loved the hammocks and the chairs on the beach, along with the docks to... More

I really identify with your review. My wife and I have a big family including 3 grandchildren plus 2 more on the way. That's why Ibis Bay is so family oriented. Our adult children love coming here from New York for the beach, the great food and jet-skis. Their kids loves the giant tortoises, the talking birds and our outdoor... More

You are right about retro. Ibis Bay is Key West's original 1956 resort. We have brought it up to date without taking away the things that make it so unique. So, come on back but make sure you don''t step on your blue suede shoes just have a be-bop-a-lula time. More
