My husband and I stayed here for a week in January and absolutely loved this place. You do get a fee boat rental for four hours a day (I think the daily gas fee was $15). We rented a boat the previous year and spent around $700 for three days (plus gas) so this was a huge bonus. The breakfast... More

Since 1972 we have driven by this resort at least 1000 times and each time said to each other , We have to stop there sometimes. We did it and what a great place to stay. It is oceanfront and has a pool and hot tub . The grounds are well maintained and the rooms are a reminder of Miami... More

We stayed at rainbow bend during our visit to the keys. Our room was big with a patio so we could sit outside in the evenings. The room was clean but the shower was really small. It is a good bargain as you can reach key west in a bit over an hour and have a beach nearby.

Great resort right on the water. This is absolutely my favorite place in all of the keys. The rooms have complete kitchens and all the rooms I have stayed in have everything you could possibly need. In addition to use of fishing boats there is a very nice breakfast included for the price of the room. Service was excellent from... More

This resort is showing its age but is well kept. There was a musty Oder in the reception area, and again in my room but I attribute that to being by the ocean. Morning was marvelous watching the sunrise on the beach.

We visit Rainbow Bend twice a year. We keep coming back because we love the quiet and solitude offered at the resort. Our favorite room to stay in is the Octogon Down, 2 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath with full kitchen. The staff is all friendly and helpful, the use of the boston whaler allows fishing or just cruising for half... More

We have our 3rd trip booked and we can't wait! We're bringing a friend this time too. This is not a tourist area unless you're in Key West and this is not a fancy resort but it's perfect for us because we come to fish the big blue! The only place in the Keys we could find that has boats... More

Boat with room allows you to go fishing. Paddle boats and outdoor chess. Nice saltwater pool. We bring our food and lots of family's sit out together having cocktails and... More

Needed a weekend get away and found this hidden spot with tripadvisor. Was lured in by free use of boat. If you want a five star resort than this is not it but the keys aren't full of five star resorts. If you want a beach to layout the keys is not the place either. It is a old keys... More

Upon arriving we were upgraded to a much bigger room free. Little older motel but very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was excellent and free. The staff were very friendly and helpful with any questions we had. Loved the pool
