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.

Absolutely horrible.... We arrived for a 2 night stay with another couple. The room was dirty still had toothpaste in the bathroom sinks from the previous guests. The matresses were stained and had very musty odor. After the first night the women woke up with small bites on legs after the second night there were more. Went to urgent care... More

We stayed at Rainbow Bend this past weekend. It was the most wonderful experience we have had on a vacation so far. The staff were so helpful, friendly, and accommodating, which only added to the experience. The room was quaint, clean, quiet, and comfortable. The view beautiful, from the room, and from The Hideaway Café, which makes a wonderful complementary... More

My husband and I stayed here last weekend. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely go back someday. The service was great. The scenery was gorgeous. The complimentary boat rental is a steal. The pool and rooms were very clean. Includes a complimentary breakfast in the Hide Away Caf'e, which was delicious. No complaints here.

We enjoyed using the boats most days and the guys helped us get to some great fishing locations. The breakfast service was very... More

Have stayed at the Rainbow Bend several times and each time return for the "true" Keys feel and experience. This is a classic Keys place w/ very natural settings and a modest, come as you are vibe. Grounds are neat and clean, efficiency rooms have great kitchens and living areas. Be advised, this is not the Hilton or other huge... More
