This small, quaint and beautiful property is a hidden gem! Our families had updated one bed room condos with fully equipped kitchens. We had a private beach area and a heated pool to enjoy! The staff was very nice and welcoming. And the property is literally walking distance to great restaurants, shopping and fishing pier! Our family has already made... More

This is the third year I stay here and it continues to get worse every year. It is sad because the location is perfect but management is horrible. The maintenance is terrible. I am looking for another place to stay next year. Just not worth the aggravation;I spent a good amount to enjoy myself not deal with hassle. Think about... More

When you walk into the Rainbow on the Ocean, you are about to experience what Florida beaches were like in a time before colossal structures. Step out of your room and jump in the pool. Get out of the pool, walk 10 steps and jump in the ocean. The small apartments have everything you need to feed a Girl Scout... More

This is the second time I have stayed at ROTO, once in October 2013 and recently in May, 2014. The people are very friendly (not only staff, but guests, too)..it feels like family. Only (2) floors- many different room options from a full suite to one-bedroom, but even the 1 bedroom has a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker in a... More

We stayed at this resort for 3 nights to wrap up our first vacation with grandchildren 4 and 8 years old. Could not have fallen in to a better area for the kids, perfect location, steps to the beach, back to the pool to shower off and play, all within being able to keep an eye on them without any...

My husband, daughter (11 years old) and I have been visiting this motel for about 6 years twice a year and always manage to have a wonderful time. It is right on the beach, the staff is very nice. Few years back recommended Rainow to our friends/neighbors and they also fell in love with it. They vacation here on a... More

My family has stayed here on and off over the course of 20 years. I’m sad to say, while ROTO still has a bit of charm, the service level has gone down dramatically. My Aunt, Grandmother and I booked two adjoining rooms on the 1st floor in May. We always stay on the lower level, because my Grandmother is nearly... More

This is a great place to stay. It's the second time we've been here with family and not been disappointed. One day I spent the afternoon by the pool with less than 15 people relaxing on the entire grounds (including beach, grassy area, etc.) and then walked a few blocks away to see 100 people crammed into the same physical...

Let's get a few things out of the way: don't come to ROTO expecting room service, cardboard cutout room decorations, or whatever else you've come to expect after staying at a bunch of corporate hotels. This place is Old Florida. And as such, is awesome and a great deal. I stayed in a hotel room for three nights and it... More

Absolutely the most relaxing ten days we've enjoyed in years. The art deco motif, updated room, and friendly, proactive staff provided and experience that we'll relive next year ... we booked two weeks for December 2013. Our room had been recently remodled and was in keeping with the ambiance of Florida beach that was 50 feet from our door. The... More
