We left this hotel feeling completely satisfied! The staff at Rainbow bend were fantastic! They took the time to talk to us and knew us by name. We stayed in room 3, it was upstairs behind the restaurant. We enjoyed that is was away from foot traffic and didn't have people walking past the door. We were never bothered by... More

Rainbow Bend is wonderful find for the avid fisherman as well as the family. Brought my 12 yo son who had a great time fishing, swimming and the location (right on the water with a dock for fishing). The best part is the room rate comes with a boat – where else is this possible! The resort staff is very... More

Our room was at the back - Pro: private porch w hottub, con: road noise (big con) and no view once inside. Room was clean and tidy, pool was fine. Master bed was too soft for my liking. We used the boats which was fun - both the kayaks and the motorized skiff, both of which were fun. Really felt... More

Rainbow Bend is a great reprive from the big City hassle. Laid back and relaxing, it is the perfect get away for couples and families. We have been to Rainbow Bend six times and have enjoyed every stay. Sometimes we take our dog and he is welcome too! Michael and Angela Cudlipp Miami Shores FL

Not sure where the good ratings are coming from on this one. We had a great Keys vacation until we hit this place. Unkempt and dirty to include pool, hot tub, and room. We decided to cancel the reservation and move on; we were told there are no refunds.

The hotel was promising, cute gift shop, nice location but unit 5 was unacceptable. We stayed at other hotels in the keys, Hilton, Hampton Inn, The Continental, which were all great. The Sea Dell was clean, but very old and no view... an old motor inn. I thought this would be great, but I was highly disgusted. The room smelled... More

If you're looking for old-timey Keys ambience, you'll appreciated the beachfront location, use of kayaks & motorboats (just pay for gas used), big rooms (apartments actually, with full kitchen & living room), water views or private patios w/ hot tubs, cooked-to-order free breakfasts, and laidback but helpful staff at Rainbow Bend. If you're a fan of the modern and sleek,... More

I've been staying at the Rainbow Bend Fishing Resort for over twenty years, and hope to come another twenty. When the kids were young it was a great place for the family. Now it's a welcome winter break with a few of my fishing buddies to enjoy the good weather, friendly staff, and fantastic offer of using one of their... More
