Had stayed at this resort many years ago and decided to return for a two night stay during a recent trip to the keys. It is a charming, laid back old style resort. By old style I mean family owned and staff around to help whenever needed, simple. Our room opened right onto the beach. The room was nice and... More

This was my second time staying at Rainbow and had another great stay. Rooms are clean and spacious with a full kitchen. Less than a hundred yards from the Atlantic. Cool breeze, scenic, with a feeling of the islands. Very good breakfast included in your stay and you have to have the pancakes. World class restaurant. Took the free boat... More

Just got back for another wonderful stay at Rainbow Bend. The staff is so friendly even to my dog. We stayed in the Large sleeping room, but it is so much more. It has a small table and chairs, mini fridge and microwave. We could see the water from our room. Breakfast was included with the room and let me... More

Never fished the Keys before until my trip there in April '14. Caught a lot of different fish everyday including yellowtail snapper. Free boats with rental was big plus and very convenient. Rooms were clean, restaurant food excellent, and hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. I'm planning my second trip there this year as we speak.

We stayed at Rainbow Bend for three nights and it was a beautiful old classic keys resort. The rooms were nice, but the location was the key. You got half day boat rental also + breakfast. Id go back there again in a heart beat.

I stayed here AUG 2014. It was a family vacation. This little resort was great. It has a pool, hot tub, bar, restaurant, power boats (snorkeling or fishing) kayaks, snorkel gear etc. It was reasonably priced compared to other resorts in the area. The staff overall was extremely friendly. If you book here be aware of the stringent cancelation rules... More

Had a great time. Excellent location and great little hideaway. Very helpful and friendly staff. Great place to go for quiet and relaxation. Not having to worry about making breakfast was a bonus. Access to a boat everyday is another nice touch especially if you came to fish. Will definitely go back. Allison M.
