Rainbow Bend is a great reprive from the big City hassle. Laid back and relaxing, it is the perfect get away for couples and families. We have been to Rainbow Bend six times and have enjoyed every stay. Sometimes we take our dog and he is welcome too! Michael and Angela Cudlipp Miami Shores FL

Not sure where the good ratings are coming from on this one. We had a great Keys vacation until we hit this place. Unkempt and dirty to include pool, hot tub, and room. We decided to cancel the reservation and move on; we were told there are no refunds.

The hotel was promising, cute gift shop, nice location but unit 5 was unacceptable. We stayed at other hotels in the keys, Hilton, Hampton Inn, The Continental, which were all great. The Sea Dell was clean, but very old and no view... an old motor inn. I thought this would be great, but I was highly disgusted. The room smelled... More

If you're looking for old-timey Keys ambience, you'll appreciated the beachfront location, use of kayaks & motorboats (just pay for gas used), big rooms (apartments actually, with full kitchen & living room), water views or private patios w/ hot tubs, cooked-to-order free breakfasts, and laidback but helpful staff at Rainbow Bend. If you're a fan of the modern and sleek,... More

I've been staying at the Rainbow Bend Fishing Resort for over twenty years, and hope to come another twenty. When the kids were young it was a great place for the family. Now it's a welcome winter break with a few of my fishing buddies to enjoy the good weather, friendly staff, and fantastic offer of using one of their... More

We were so impressed by our 2013 stay, we immediately booked for 2014. It is only due to elderly parents that we didn't prebook at this time. If you are looking for old time Key ambiance, this this the place to be. The architecture isn't the key; it's the ambiance. From the office staff to housekeeping, no one is too... More

Just returned from 5 days at Rainbow Bend. If you are "fishing people", or folks who just want to relax and kick back in a low stress old Florida environment, this place is for you. My buddy and I rented the 2 bedroom with a fully equipped kitchen. Very clean, comfortable, but not fancy. If you want "tiffany's", this place... More
