My daughter and I had a wonderful time at Rainbow Bend Resort. The property is dated but that adds to the charm of the place. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. The room was clean and comfortable. The complimentary kayaks were great fun and we had the added bonus of a pod of dolphins joining us on one occasion.... More

My family and I went to Rainbow Bend Resort for a weekend getaway. The room was clean, the free breakfast was delicious, the staff was helpful, and the use of complimentary kayaks was fabulous, but the highlight of our weekend was using the motorboat. It was so nice to hop on our boat and go fishing and snorkeling. We had... More

My husband and I just returned from another amazing trip to Rainbow Bend Resort. When we arrived, the office was closed and our key was left in an envelope for us. When we entered our room, we realized this was not the room that we had reserved. The next morning my husband went to the office & Marcia was working.... More

My husband and I stayed at Rainbow Bend for 4 days and we had a great time! The staff were very friendly, the rooms were clean (but I will say the decor is dated). The grounds are beautiful. The free boat rental was a blast. We went to a sandbar and snorkeled and saw plenty of fish. The free breakfast... More

I have to say I never have written a review before. I was very nervous about our reservation with all the bad reviews. I was pleasantly surprised. If your looking for frills and upscale, plush rooms look elsewhere. But if your looking for a clean, comfortable spot for your kids right on the water this is your place. Breakfast was... More

I had the pleasure of spending five days fishing and relaxing a Rainbow Bend Resort in the Keys. I and a friend had a great time kayaking and fishing from this resort. The room was excellent and by previous experience a great deal on the price for the location and facilities! Plenty of room and very clean. Use of the... More

An absolute wonderful getaway. Not a luxury resort but a wonderful place to lay back and do almost nothing. The Boston whalers are a nice diversion if you like to be on the water. Otherwise, this 1960s laid back setting is a wonderful place to escape.

My wife and I stayed two nights in the jacuzzi room next to the pool. The room was clean and the bed and pillows were comfortable. The room has a small fridge and a microwave. A small safe for your valuables is provided as well. The A/C worked great. The only down fall is that there is no wifi available... More

I've been going to Rainbow Bend in Marathon on the Keys for many years. They offer a great product in terms of a beautiful sandy-beach view, friendly and helpful staff, and the extraordinary benefit of 15 foot Boston Whalers for four hours a day. We can explore, beach, fish, and snorkel without paying the high prices of a private charter.... More

Stayed in the Octagon lower. Very clean, staff are extremely friendly, and helpful. Boats are always available. Breakfast included in the a.m, choose from 5 complimentary items from 7:30 - 9:30 a.m. every morning. Pool is not heated, but hot tub is a second option. Very nice sunning beach, two piers. Beautiful ocean view. Kids had a great time. Resort... More
