The minute we checked in we didnt get a good feeling. NO SAFE IN EITHER ROOM OR RECEPTION. Also the doors to the room was no secure. You could see 2 inches of light around the bedroom door. Save your money and go elsewhere. More

We do not offer safes in the rooms. We can keep valuables for guests in our office safe if requested.
I was definitely not disappointed with this hotel. If you're looking for an exotic getaway, a nice place to relax, this is the place. The room sparked my imagination, there was a hammock right outside our window and a warm pool that didn't hurt my eyes with chlorine. The food at the Stoned Crab was excellent, you don't need to leave the hotel to enjoy yourself! But that would be sad because Key West is a fantastic place in itself. I would love to come back here again.
You certainly wouldn't be the first person to come to Ibis Bay and end up spending all their vacation time at the resort. That's a compliment we will gladly accept, but we love our guests exploring Key West. It's a tiny island with lots to offer. Our Fun Desk will help you with rental scooters, electric cars, bicycles and terrific suggestions of places to visit. The island is flat so bicycles are easy everywhere.
This place has some issues, but while we were there (Sept. 2013) there were workers constantly working to improve the place. Our room had siding glass doors that went right out to the beach. (Great ambiance but the beach is not so great there.)The hard tile floors are a huge plus. (I hate carpet in hotels). Beds were OK. Toilet did not flush great. The fan in the bathroom was loud and noisey. Lighting was not good. An extra mirror in the big room would have been great. The white noise of the AC was very good to sleep by. It seemed very clean. Wednesday evening, they had a movie on a big screen by the pool. After diving all day, we just relaxed and had dinner & movie at the pool. Loved that, I think they should do that more often. Room service was sometimes 5pm. I thought that was strange.
Thank you for staying with us and making good suggestions. As you mentioned, our crews are constantly working on improving Ibis Bay. It was built in 1956, so it is worth the extra effort. Too many of the great 50s classic hotels and motels are being demolished in The Keys. They are making way for chain hotels that lack any local character. No matter what anyone else does, our classic hotel is here to stay.So come on back when you can.
My husband & I stayed here from 9-1 to 9-7. Our room was clean & comfortable. Housekeeping was very respectful. The pool area is great because it has a lot of chairs, so no one has to go without a seat/place to soak up some sun. The entire place is bright & colorful, giving it a fun feel that fits in with the paradise that is Key West. We ate at their restaurant, the Stoned Crab (our second time there; we vacationed in KW last September), & the food was delicious as expected. We got a discount on our meals for being resort guests. The staff was so accommodating, they let us get married in the beach area, for no extra cost. (It was a very small wedding, 7 people in all, & we hired our own officiant). When we checked out, we were told that if we book a room with them again, we will get a beach front room for being a returning customer.
Congratulations on your wedding. Everyone here was very excited about it too. One of the great things about being in the hotel business is meeting good people like you two. Maybe you will come back to celebrate your anniversaries. We hope so.
10 minutes Approximately away from Downtown And attractions But Very nice and relaxing, Rooms are simple and comfortable.
Based on the price of the hotel I would rate it excellent.
The cheapest hotel in Key West under my search.
One very good thing about this hotel It is close to a supermarket and every other store that you can imagine. Love it.
Key West Island is so small that being a few minutes one way or the other doesn't make a big difference time-wise. But being able to go to a quiet place after the "party" downtown is definitely a very good thing. Chill time on the beach in a hammock or by the pool is essential. Thanks for choosing Ibis Bay and taking time to write your nice review.
This place was like magic for me. Relaxed , friendly,easy welcome and check in. Our room was basic but fresh and bright and clean ...and best of all ...lead out to our very own beach...hammock, sand, water , pontoon , wildlife .etc etc....we booked jet skis on site and went ona guide tour around the keys for a very reasonable price. Great bar and restaurant on site and tortoises , iguanas and cheeky parrots. Loved this place . This place really is priceless. Not too many places like this . We loved key west and believe we stayed in the best place there . Thanks you
There's only one thing for you to do. Give up everything and move to Ibis Bay. We will put you in charge of Public Relations. Its so nice when you choose a hotel and it suits you perfectly. I am so glad we were the right place for you. Please come back to see us soon! Lexie, the parrot says "hi!".
