We loved the resort, loved Lexi the bird and the turtles, having the wildlife made it a fun experience, the rooms are fun and very clean, the staff is wonderful, the Manager was extremely accommodating as our plane left late in the day so she arranged to have our check out extended which we were grateful for . The onsite Stoned Crab restaurant / bar has wonderful food and a fun atmosphere we loved Margaret the bartender and the rest of the staff. The location is convenient to the airport and beaches and within 2 miles of Duval street so a bike/scooter is a must, we rented a small car which worked out fine. It is clear that the resort is in a continuous upgrade but it's being done very low key so as not to interfere with the guests. We were honored to meet the owner Chris who was very accommodating to the questions we had about the resort and it's buildings, he is proud of his resort and deserves to be. As said before this is not a chain resort and that is a good thing. Think fun, think vintage funky and you have the vibe of the resort. True the bathrooms are small but really who spends that much time in there while on vacation? Among other reviews i have read the only suggestion I have is to have coffee in the rooms (there is free coffee in the restaurant for guests to take out every morning) it seems to me the bad reviews are from people who expected a luxury Hilton resort which this is not, this is a fun and funky place which would attract the easy going fun loving Key West type guest.
- 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!
