This is my 5th time back over the last 20 years. We love the location, very quiet but close enough to make day trips just about everywhere in the Keys. The selling point for me is the boats. Boat rentals in the keys are quite expensive so you really need to factor that into the price to see you're getting...

Came for Memorial Day weekend was surprised by the convenience of the amenities provided by the hotel. Had such a great time at the marina, the boat was included in our stay. Great rooms, beautiful pool and grounds. Will definitely come again!

It is not often you can truly say you get what you paid for... At first the prelimanary research of hotels in the area and prices where hard to under stand. But whoever rated Rainbow Bend a 2 does not truly understand what it means to have the "keys experience". You are greated with the most warming and helpful staff....

Visited the Rainbow Bend in October of 2013 with my husband and our dog. We had the greatest time! We stayed in a jacuzzi room and relaxed, and had such a great time out on the water with our dog in the Boston Whaler provided. Dinner at the Hideaway was a plus.

We were very pleased with all aspacts of our visit. The duck in the hideaway is the best in the world. The staff went out of the way to accommodate us at every level. We even got the anchor of our boat stuck in t house e prop and our safety was first. No charge for the assisstance. Rented fishing...

My husband and I returned for a 4 day stay in paradise. We were joined by my sister and brother-in-law who have never stayed overnight in the Keys. We simply loved, loved, loved Rainbow Bend. It was comfortable with a beautiful environment. Very "Old Florida" which to us was charming. Breakfast and the use of a Boston Whaler you can't...

Husband loves this place, mostly the boats! Everybody here are so nice and helpful. The food at the restaurant is great, but looks better in the dark than in the day! Needs major updating as does the whole place. All in all I still enjoy going their for the whole relaxing feeling and I like small places, not huge fancy...
