Biggest problem for us was the lack of internet connectivity. We were on the second floor. Didn't work there, didn't work in the restaurant, didn't work at the pool. Loved the decor in our tiny little room, but tiny may be giving it too much credit. Miniscule. Wee little shower had really low water pressure. And don't get me started on the size of the toilet seat... Comfy bed, though. It's obvious Management has fantastic, fun, creative ideas for the entire property and that, bit by bit, those ideas are being realized. In the meantime, though, it feels somewhat disjointed and definitely a work in progress. Loved sitting on the floating docks directly on the waterfront at the rear of the property. Peaceful. The parking situation seemed to mess up the beach vibe, with a mixture of sand and macadam blurring the lines between aesthetics and practicality. The air conditioner in our room was noisy and, even turned to its highest setting, didn't keep the room comfortably cool overnight. Enjoyed The Stoned Crab. Great service and atmosphere. There's an authentic Key West vibe happening here, and maybe it would be worth paying to stay in the beachfront rooms. Other reviewers seem to think so. We were only in Key West one night and would love to return for a longer stay. Maybe the Ibis will be ready for primetime then.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ibis Bay is exactly what you dream of when you imagine Key West. It's a friendly, quirky resort with design and colors inspired by 1950s Havana. The landscaped white sand beach leads right up to the beachfront guest rooms, and guests can jump right into the beautiful bay for swimming, snorkeling and take jet skis, kayaks or paddle boards right from our dock! The staff are all Key West locals who love the island and want our guests to enjoy their stay. We have exclusive attractions like our poolside Dive-In Movies every Wednesday night on a 20ft screen by the pool, plus Nightboarding nightime LED-lit paddleboarding and kayaking! Wildlife abounds on our grounds including huge tortoises, lots of large colorful parrots, local iguanas (don't touch!) and our namesake, the very pretty ibis birds. In the mood for some fun? Ask our Fun Desk concierge about our jet ski, scooter and electric car rentals on site plus paddle board, kayaks and kiteboard rentals on the beach. They can also recommend off-site activities, restaurants, tours and local attractions. We have 80 hammocks for lazing about, and an amazing restaurant called The Stoned Crab that has two of its very own fishing boats delivering fresh crab, shrimp, lobster and fish every day!
