“Wonderful setting great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

We stayed in Unit #6 with our 2 Chihuahuas and the room was nice and clean with a huge king (very comfortable) bed. Had no reservation and were greeted with kindness and given the choice of several rooms. We ate at the restaurant there at the resort and the food was really wonderful and fresh. We will definitely return here again. David & Kelly Woodhouse Ft Pierce, FL

We really enjoyed our stay at Rainbow Bend. The rooms are above average size with a great view of the Ocean. The restraint is one of the best in the keys and a short walk for your room. We really enjoyed the use of the boats to fish, tour or swim from. The staff is very friendly. We will be back next year.

We stayed in room #2 and it was very comfortable. The hotel is not a cookie cutter condominium. It's very charming and exactly what we were looking for in the Keys. We had dinner at the Hideaway Cafe and the food was delicious. Chef Frieda is exceptionally talented and an artist in the kitchen. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Room Tip: We stayed in room #2 which was between the check in station and the restaurant which was convenient.

What a great spot to spend a vacation. The staff made you feel like family always helpful always a smile. This is a piece of Florida that we will revisit conveniently located between Key West and Key Largo..
There is a Restaurant there too that cannot be missed if you like fine food and once again the restaurant staff made us feel like family......thank you.
Fidhing....do you like to fish? they have that too.

Give it a try!

I am currently sitting in room #2 here and it is sweltering! The a/c does not work and by the time we realized, the front staff person has left. I called the hotel's number several times and no one has picked up. In their message, they have an "emergency number" listed. As of now, I have called it 9 times over the past 3 hours and no one is picking up. It doesn't even have a voicemail!
It doesn't look like I'll be able to get this oven cooled down this evening, so I'll be heading to office first thing in the morning to demand a refund. They have a "2 night minimum" if you stay on the weekend, so hopefully I'll that that refund and not have to be stuck in this dump another night.
Hey, at least the wi-fi works so I can warn anyone else thinking about staying here!!

A little piece of paradise in Marathon, not too expensive. Our room had a nice balcony looking at the sea. Nice small swimming pool and jacuzzi outside. Possibility to hire a boat and roam around.... Good breakfast. Excellent staff! I strongly recommend it.
