if you love the natural aspects of the Middle Keys, Rainbow Bend is a must. The rooms are "quaint", but charming in their own way. Rooms come with access to motorboats and nearby diving and fishing. A world class restaurant, The Hideaway caps the experience!

The location is fantastic, the food is great, and the staff is nice, but the motel needs to be fixed up. The boats and kayaks are a huge plus that really make it nice to stay there, but the rooms are in need of improvements. It is clear that the beds, blinds, and furnishings are old and in need of...

The reviews and the hotel website is what sold me on this motel. I felt I was deceived. I did expect a bit more amenities for $200 a night, although we got to use a motor boat for 2 hours, after paying for gas and tip it didn't feel free. The tranquil location, rustic surroundings and staff rates 5 stars.... More

Found listing online, needing a room with two beds. Decided to call the office to confirm and discuss any other deals or options. Was told the room I saw online was not available, only rooms that were $100+a night we're actually available. I thanked her and booked the double room online. Ten minutes later I was called by the same... More

My husband and I spent our 25th wedding anniversary here, after much searching decided to stay since the resort included free use of the boats. We love boating and fishing so this was perfect for us. Laid back, relaxing and friendly. Breakfast was good, location was good and met some really nice people. Staff was so helpful - made for... More

We travel often and stay in many places and if we visit the Keys again, we will stay at this resort. We physically checked out many other places while we were there and this resort had everything we wanted. The staff was helpful, friendly, and full of information. This place is very laid back, private, and quiet. The boat usage... More

First, what this isn't: South Beach. "Modern" luxury. Super fancy. Super hip. Or even well-represented by it's own website. What it is: Super. As in, super old school Florida Keys, where a little imperfection never hurt anybody's mood, and where the "key" players of the keys are put up front and center: the ocean and the escape. Also, this can... More
