We enjoyed the friendly and beautiful atmosphere at the Rainbow. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The room was clean, spacious and overlooked the ocean. The restaurant was also an extra plus, their staff was also very friendly, and the included free breakfast was delicious. We noted that many of the locals ate dinner here! We are all looking...

I read all the reviews prior to staying here for two nights on the way to Key West. Decided to book because of the use of the boats. Front desk was helpful and immediately informed us that we had to pre-pay for two nights. We were given the choice of two rooms. One was small and behind the office. The... More

In March 2015 we visited Rainbow Bend Resort for the first time. We went fishing in the boat near Duck Key twice and caught over 50 fish in a few hours. We also relaxed in the pool and hot tub and finished with some delicious Duck at the Hideaway café. The staff at Rainbow Bend is very courteous and willing... More

The only thing that we liked about the place was the breakfast. The hotel is very run down and felt cheesy. There was a hole cut out in the wall connecting from the room and the bathroom. I guess that was the attempt for ventilation for the bathroom. My boyfriend called it a sky light to the office person but... More

If you are looking for luxury..forget it. We don't We stayed in the Main House in late Feb 2014 for 6 days. It was clean, bathroom looked recently remodeled, no bugs. Could have used a few more pots and pans in the kitchen, but we made do with what was there. Breakfast every morning was great; figure that was $8... More

Definitely stay at Rainbow Bend if you are looking for a relaxing Old Florida Hotel. The staff are extraordinarily friendly and helpful. The free motor boats and kayaks are there for your adventures with considerate hard working boatmen to offer all necessary assistance. Do not miss eating at the best restaurant on Marathon Key right on site. We are on... More

Me and a couple of guy's I work with won a trip. We decided to go to Rainbow Bend. This was the 5th or 6th time I was at the resort. We love going out in the boats to go fishing. The breakfast is great and the rooms are clean. Just booked another trip to go back with the family.

It was a fishing trip---boat and motor included. How awesome is that with breakfast provided each day in their waterfront focused dining area. Pink buildings take a walk back in time. Generous sized waterfront property. Loved it so much we are going back!!

Went last June with the family and had an amazing time, quiet hideaway, great staff, amazing amenities. We are going again for the Mother's day weekend and cannot wait for a little slice of paradise. We also enjoy all the great restaurants in the area.
