First time in Key West and traveling solo was a bit apprehensive.Chose Ibis Bay based on it's retro feel.I was not disappointed.Chose a room beachside although i did not need 2 beds. Well worth it. The staff were exceptional, my room very clean.Not a bug to be seen. The "Life Is Too Short Bus" made it very easy to get...

This is our third year at Ibis Bay. We travel the Keys from Daytona on our Harley. The location is good. We enjoy the quaint, retro, island decor. Rooms are CLEAN & good-size. Bathrooms are small, but that's consistent with the 50's. We like that the owners are keeping it as it was; the cool, retro places are hard to...

One is always leery when making travel arrangements to a place they've never been. Its just the way it is. Arriving at Ibis Bay Beach resort my wife and I were naturally skeptical. That changed within 10 minutes of setting foot on the premises. You can tell that the owners of this facility really care about every element of their...

Hi Carter, Its great to get another destination business owner's perspective. Thank you for your review. My business partner and I are constantly working to keep the guest improvements coming without changing the 1956 character of the resort. All our staff are very proud of "their" resort. Its a group effort. Chris

We stayed at the hotel for Spring Break with our two daughters. We rented a room with beach access...however, the "beach" is questionable. The room was rather small but we did have two beds. The check in staff was very personable and they were very knowledgable about attractions around the area. The shuttle bus was very handy so we didn't...

Hey Stephanie, Thank you for staying with us. The greatest compliment we can be given is to see a guest come back again. Until then, the talking birds, iguanas, live lobsters AND sharks say, "See you soon!" Oh I forgot, our giant tortoise also said to say, "Hi". Chris

Nice place. Had a great hidden room in corner with very private deck and hammock. The bar is great, really nicely made drinks. Like the shuttle to downtown. Lots of wildlife on property. Big spacious clean room.

Overall a very nice place to stay, great amenities, to include the shuttle downtown. Only thing that may have made it a little better would be to have a small coffee pot or electric tea kettle in the room.

We were here for three nights and had a great time. We stayed in room 100 which has the beach out back. Well worth the few extra bucks to have chairs and a deck to look out over the water. Rooms are small but very clean and functional. Only two outlets so bring a multi plug for chargers. Pool area...

Hi Feet In The Water, Thanks for staying with us and breaking things down for everyone who is trying to decide where to stay.

This was our second stay at Ibis. We were here in 2015 & decided to return this year because of the location/service. We did not want to stay near Duvall Street--too busy! Ibis is away from the chaos, yet provides shuttle service to the commercial areas of Key West. This resort was built in the 50's.....it is charming! The restaurant...

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! What are you waiting for? ... more   less
