Our first trip to Rainbow Bend was in 1989. In my opinion there is no better place to relax and enjoy the sunshine. The price of the room includes a full breakfast and the use of Boston Whaler boats and kayaks for each night's stay. The staff is always friendly and very accommodating. The rooms are dated but comfortable. Rainbow... More

For 200 dollars a night i think a person should at least expect comfortable beds, bed was lumpy and wobbly. stayed in room 2 4 nights, the concept is great but it has limitations. the boats are glorified jon boats with motors, you sit way to low in boat for comfortable fishing, no way you can stand up. the free...

For us anyway, there is no place in the keys you can get a boat, breakfast, and a nice room for the price. Eric was extremely helpful in pointing us to fish spots, wind or no fishfinder be damned! If you really fish, or want to get the family on the water for a ride, or drive your skiff to... More

My wife and I returned to Rainbow Bend in Jan. of this year and had just as nice a time as we had in Jan. of 2014. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The guys taking care of the boat dock are on the money and quite helpful. (The fishing was pretty good,too.) Sombrero Beach is close by. A nice... More

Really amazing place as long as you're not looking for an upscale room. Great boats/kayaks. Good breakfast. Docks, sand, view, nice people. Room is dated, and could use a new bedspread, mattress and AC unit (window unit). But new bathroom was nice!

Had a wonderful long weekend. Staff is accommodating and food at restaurant is excellant. Great wine list. Rooms are dated but clean and neat and couldn't ask for a quieter beach anywhere. Perfect for romantic get a aways

This was our second time staying at the rainbow bend. The location is spectacular! The most beautiful sunrises I have ever seen. The staff is friendly and courteous. Great breakfast also. The fishing boats are perfect. We had a blast catching snapper and grouper. Love, love, love this hotel. Great value also!

We chose to stay at Rainbow Bend Resort again in December and, as always, it did not disappoint. The accommodations were very comfortable and staff very friendly. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast in the Hideaway Cafe every morning prior to going fishing. The dock and boat staff is always helpful and the boats in good working condition. We caught lots...

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!
