The attention to detail the owners have dedicated to this resort is uncanny! From the grounds being clean and neat to the personalized touches found in and around the room and resort - everything was done to perfection. We rented one of the efficiency units and even that had a kitchenette with everything you would need for a comfortable stay,... More

I can't say I have every been more pleased with an accomodation. If you're looking for a large resort with a gym keep browsing. This place is quaint and perfect for a quiet getaway. I took my daughter for her 14th birthday and we were over the moon. If I had to pick a drawback it would be that the... More

My husband and I went to celebrate our 26 year wedding anniversary. We were very pleasantly surprised from the moment we turned on to the property. The lay out, theme, cleanliness, originality, view and tranquility was exactly what the doctor ordered!! Put us both in a Keys state of mind. We absolutely recommend this place to any couple who's looking... More

We had a short stay here and wish we had another few days. Our cottage (Conch) had everything we needed, spacious and really well equipped and decorated. Private beach and dock is literally a few steps away with stunning sunset views and lots of sunloungers/ hammmocks / cabanas for a lazy day.It has a guest laundry and dive lockers available.... More

My family visited Island Bay Resort a few years ago and it was the best of our key's vacation. We stayed at the resort while we explored (drove) the rest of the keys. This resort was the best part of our vacation. It was a little pricey, however the resort was well worth the money that one spent to stay.

My mom, two kids and I visited the Island Bay Resort, and we were thrilled with everything about it. We took two cottages (#5 Bahia Honda and #6 Sunset), and they were perfect. As others have described, we turned off the busy highway after almost missing it, and were delighted to see the adorable cottages, tiki hut, signage, bocce ball... More

Passed it the 1st time we were following our GPS, but then we learned to recognize the colorful manatee marking the entrance! Upon pulling into the driveway we were blown away by the attention to detail and the stunning paved driveway!! From there is was just better and better.... We loved our waterfront room. Mike and Carol had a nice... More

Stayed four nights in July. This is really a great place to relax and enjoy all that the Florida Keys has to offer. I stayed in #5, Bahia Honda room. All rooms are close to the beach. Rooms have all you need, kitchen is small but you don't come to the Keys to cook. I barbecued on the grill two... More

It must be the 5th to 6th time we visited Island Bay and yet again, it was what the doctor recommended: relaxation and bliss. We were staying 3 cottages up from the beach, not our favourite by the beach but it was just as good. Perfect weather added to the feeling that we'd come home. We were only there for... More

A fellow Mommy and very good friend of mine stayed at this amazing little getaway before I was to have my second child. Our only regret? Leaving! It is quaint, cozy and peaceful and the owners are wonderful. Everything you could want for a relaxing vacation. We have talked about how wonderful our stay was ever since. Now that my... More
