My husband and I stayed at Ibis bay during the week of Thanksgiving. We booked our room through hotwire and got a fairly good rate. I read the reviews on here before our trip and was really unsure what to expect. The front desk staff was very helpful and got us checked in quickly. The resort is nothing fancy and I wouldn't consider it to be beachfront, however we weren't impressed with any of the beaches in Key West. The room was very small with just the bare minimum of a bed, tv, and small bathroom (shower only). The room we got was however very clean and it looked like it had recently been painted, and cleanliness is the main thing I look for when traveling. The pool deck was nice, but I wish they had a hot tub. We also ate at their restaurant, The Stoned Crab, twice during our trip. Once was for lunch and the other time for dinner, and both times our food was excellent with very large portions. They charge a resort fee of $10.50 which I don't thoroughly agree with since we wasn't provided with any sort of amenities. Overall, the resort is nice and I think that their website gives a fair description and accurate photos. We wasn't impressed with the area overall, but Ibis was a nice low key place to stay for a couple nights.
- 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!
