My husband and I just stayed 4 days in paradise on our honeymoon. We are from Daytona beach fl. If you are like us and have a love for the beautiful water and fishing and serenity than you will love this place. It is not a fancy resort but it has an old keys charm that makes you feel as... More

We have been to Rainbow Bend 2 times now, and have enjoyed ourselves both times. Its not a 5 star or even a 3 star place so if that's what you're looking for, go someplace else. The pics on their web site are nicer than the place actually is. It needs some TLC. We rented a 1 bedroom and it... More

I have stayed here on three separate occasions, and all of them have been exactly what I had hoped--a great KEYS trip. If you love the Keys like we do, then you know that there is no better way to experience it than going to a "real" keys resort. This is the Rainbow Bend....it's not the Hilton with fancy rooms....it's... More

This place was very expensive and dated. The carpets in the rooms need to be replaced immediately! A little updating to the rooms and they would be nice. The staff were nice and friendly. The view and area was super! They should have a designated area for restaurant parking only so the people staying there can park.

This is the worst place that I've ever payed to stay at. It smelled so bad that from a fragrance that I could taste it. All night long..grrr. What were they covering up? The free breakfast was fast but the food tasted odd. How do you make a egg taste bad really? Maybe old oil that they cook in. We... More

We stayed in a one bedroom. Bed was comfy and the view was nice. The resort itself needs some repairs and upgrade. For the prices they charge you would would think they could replace the rusted out oven and aging fridge in the room and do some upgrades. The property needs to be kept up more...restaurant needed the screens replaced... More

Had stayed at this resort many years ago and decided to return for a two night stay during a recent trip to the keys. It is a charming, laid back old style resort. By old style I mean family owned and staff around to help whenever needed, simple. Our room opened right onto the beach. The room was nice and... More

This was my second time staying at Rainbow and had another great stay. Rooms are clean and spacious with a full kitchen. Less than a hundred yards from the Atlantic. Cool breeze, scenic, with a feeling of the islands. Very good breakfast included in your stay and you have to have the pancakes. World class restaurant. Took the free boat... More

Just got back for another wonderful stay at Rainbow Bend. The staff is so friendly even to my dog. We stayed in the Large sleeping room, but it is so much more. It has a small table and chairs, mini fridge and microwave. We could see the water from our room. Breakfast was included with the room and let me... More
