We took a short trip from Miami Beach to Key West a week ago. Due to the local party, all the hotels in Key West were fully booked. We were feeling a bit sad.....After some googling, we found the Rainbow Bend @Marathon and crossed our fingers.. well, 2 nights we would survive anywhere....When arriving to the resort, we were delighted! A total positive surprise! We would not believe our luck! A great place!
There is a sandy beach (... and boats ...too) with chairs and everything you need, a good size pool and jacuzzi at the deck, an excellent restaurant...although, otherwise friendly and helpful staff failed to mention that to begin with :) - a gift shop, vending machines, laundry room, ... ..... friendly people taking care of you....
If you want to go to a store - a couple of miles down the road; how about another place to eat - right over there; sandy beach for swimming?; yes, Sombrero beach just a couple of miles away. Dolphin center - almost across the street. A really good location.
Those rocking chairs outside on the beach were perfect for watching the stars at night.
Who needs a brand new place, when these kind of places have much more charm. And at least now - during the off season, it was so quite and peaceful.... I wish I could have stayed a couple days more.
I recommend this place and if opportunity arises - I will visit again :)
Thanks Rainbow Bend Fishing Resort Staff!
