Carol and Mike are wonderful hosts and make you feel like family. You can tell that they put their heart and soul in this place. Highly recommend this resort... More

What a jewel in the Keys! Surrounded by a lush tropical landscape, a beautiful beach and gorgeous bay sunsets, you are sure to find your own Zen state.

My husband and I stayed four nights here and fell in love with everything Island Bay Resort had to offer. I don't know what more we could have asked for in a resort. It was breathtaking!! So relaxing and beautiful, we didn't feel the need to leave the private property!! However, it is centrally located to travel to the many... More

My husband and I just spent 5 nights here and it was fantastic. From the time we drove through the entrance, I knew it was going to be great. As you drive in, you immediately notice how tropical, beautiful and well-maintained the grounds are. When we checked-in, Carol was so nice and offered a lot of information on restaurants and...

Great place to kick back and relax. Very clean and quite. Wouldn't suggest it for the kids, nothing for them. More about a solo or couples weekend without frills like the big resort hotels. Bring your own supplies (beverages and snacks).

My wife and I just got back from a two night stay and will definitely be returning in the future. Arrived to hear the sounds of Jimmy Buffet playing throughout the resort. Grounds are immaculate and perfectly maintained. The view to the west of the bay is amazing (best sunset view you could ask for). Room was spotless, my wife... More

My new husband and I stayed here for the first part of our Honeymoon in the Keys. We can't say enough how much we loved this place. It was quiet, quaint, and clean. Mike and Carol were accommodating without being intrusive. We planned on making this a place to come to again and celebrate milestones and anniversaries! We highly recommend... More

We highly recommend this hotel. It is the very best place we have ever stayed! Every detail was considered by Mike and Carol, the hosts of this beautiful property and resort. We just simply relaxed in this hotel, which is truly a piece of paradise. Every want and need was already accommodated, and we actually didn't want to leave to... More

We recently returned to Island Bay Resort in Tavernier, FL for our second visit. And, for us it was like a return to paradise! It is such a tranquil, beautiful tropical haven. Once again, we stayed in unit #7, Conch Key. It is a very roomy, comfortable, and cozy unit and had everything we might need, including a well equipped... More
