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.

This was our second time at Rainbow bend and couldn't be happier! We love the staff, everyone is so nice and helpful! Love the motorboats and being out on the water all day! Rooms are just what you need and pool was an added plus! We cooked our fish we caught on the grill and truly enjoyed every minute here!... More

My family and I went to Rainbow Bend in June of 2014. We decided to stay there because my wife and her family stayed there about 30 years earlier and had a great time. And I'm happy to say we did too! The accommodations are classic old Florida charm. This is not the Ritz Carleton, but everything was clean and... More

This is a fantastic, quiet little hideaway. The staff was always great including the staff at the adjoining restaurant. There are so many amenities; a pool and hot tub, docks, free use of their little boats (as long as you replace the gas), kayaks, a bait shop, gift shop, etc. We stayed at this resort a couple of years ago...
