This was our first visit to Key West so we booked this hotel on the basis of some online research.Sometimes that way you win, sometimes not so much. The good points: The price was reasonable. It's easy to find. Parking is free. It's clean. The staff are friendly. There is free coffee in reception. There is a free shuttle bus... More

The hotel rooms were very nice, new and clean. Facing the bay with patio, lounges, hammocks. However in calling ahead to make arrangements they failed to mention their restaurant would be closed. That was a huge disappointment and inconvenience. Also the pool area was a little weathered. Furniture was old and dirty looking.

Great location, Clean rooms, the staff was great the restaurant is amazing(a little pricey but worth it), the shuttle was Awesome (you don't have to fight the traffic or find a place to park). Cannot say enough about this place, plus it's Key West can't lose. It was a life-changing experience.

This site was recommended by the receptionist at the Southwinds Motel, a local resident. I had looked at another provider, and found this one to be more reputable, more flexible in rental hours, and cheaper. This was the first time I took out a glass-bottom kayak. It's like snorkeling with a full body mask! It was wonderful, made more so... More

This place is quite a catch for Key West visiting. Adorable, affordable and more "Keys-like", than most of the places in KW. Although it's a little out of town, you are but a shuttle ride away, on the "Life Is Too Short" bus, which will take you into town and help you avoid the aggravation of parking there. The on-sight...

This hotel is around 4-5 km away from Key West downtown. Nice thing: They are offering a shuttle bus to 4 different destinations in the city, including one beach area. We upgraded our room from economic to waterside for 50 USD per night, but that was not worth it. The problem is that the hotel is at the gulf coast... More

We had a group of 15 friends drive down for 2 nights at Ibis Bay for Lobsterfest. We rented 3 rooms and had an awesome weekend!

This vacation has been everything I can wish for and more. The main reason I have been so pleased was because of the amazing hotel staff. They were super accommodating.

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! What are you waiting for? ... more   less
