Use of the boat everyday was fun and convienent. Our poolside room was clean and comfortable. In June we had the pool and beach to ourselves. Will go back for... More

All bathroom covered in mold. Everything old and dirty, very uncomfortable beds, AC loud and filter extremely dirty. It is not resort, it is worse then motel. This place should be soaked in Clorox for 3 days to be livable.

This is the only place I stay when I travel to the keys. Friendly Staff, clean rooms and right on the beach. The john boats are the best part about Rainbow Bend. The food at the hideaway café is top quality. Not to mention a full breakfast menu that is free. This is the perfect place if you want to... More

The resort is very small and older but it was very clean and all the employees were super nice and helpful. The breakfast is awesome and so is dinner.... More

Just booked our third summer family vacation at the Rainbow Bend. This is a great place to get away and live the relaxed Florida Keys lifestyle. Staff is friendly and the use of the motor boats is great entertainment for the family. Other fun things include a super sized ground chess board and a pool. We always get room number... More

I was booked for July 22-22, 2016. I injured my knee in late June and now need to have surgery....When I called to cancel I was told I would lose my deposit (200.00). I offered doctor's notes, etc..."we are a Mom and Pop location", "that's our policy". I would think that "Mom" or "Pop" would be willing to help out... More
