We stayed at Rainbow Bend this past weekend. It was the most wonderful experience we have had on a vacation so far. The staff were so helpful, friendly, and accommodating, which only added to the experience. The room was quaint, clean, quiet, and comfortable. The view beautiful, from the room, and from The Hideaway Café, which makes a wonderful complementary... More

My husband and I stayed here last weekend. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely go back someday. The service was great. The scenery was gorgeous. The complimentary boat rental is a steal. The pool and rooms were very clean. Includes a complimentary breakfast in the Hide Away Caf'e, which was delicious. No complaints here.

We enjoyed using the boats most days and the guys helped us get to some great fishing locations. The breakfast service was very... More

Have stayed at the Rainbow Bend several times and each time return for the "true" Keys feel and experience. This is a classic Keys place w/ very natural settings and a modest, come as you are vibe. Grounds are neat and clean, efficiency rooms have great kitchens and living areas. Be advised, this is not the Hilton or other huge... More

Spent our 10 year anniversary here. Was a wonderful time! Clean rooms, great staff! I work at a Marina so I know all about good customer service. Great, great place! :) Also great having a boat to use during your stay. Just have to pay for gas.

Rented the Octagon Down 2 BR for 4 nights (July 6-10, 2014) Unit is run down and antiquated. Had a musky-mold smell. Sheet rock walls were deformed in many areas, with botched repairs. The main air conditioner (wall unit in main area) kept tripping breaker and had to be reset 3 times a day. The breaker panel outside was rusty... More
