If you're looking for luxury accommodations then you'll have to look elsewhere. However; if you want comfortable and cozy accommodations; numerous onsite activities and amenities and a beautiful location that is central to all things interesting in the Florida Keys then Rainbow Bend is the place to stay! The onsite restaurant, (Hideaway Cafe) offers an adequate breakfast selection (included with...

Dirty, disgusting, bug infested are just a few of the issues that we had with this "resort" when we checked in the smell of cleaner was so strong that you could barely breath in the room. The wall in the largest bedroom was spongy. With obvious water damage in the wall between it and the bathroom. The bed squeaked and...

This is a nice laid back Hotel in the keys. It has that laid back feel and the people are very nice. Room comes with a boat for half day included in the room price. There is decent fishing and underwater structure straight out from the Resort which is nice. The boats dont have awnings so you may want to...

We stayed for a week. Ugh. The room was dusty, dirty, the shower had mildew in the caulk and a dingy dirty floor. Rugs were past worn out. Bedspread had holes in it. Sheets were white-yellow and full of holes and stains. Towels were holey as well. It was too late to book elsewhere or I would have run far,...

We have stayed at Rainbow Bend 15 years out of 20 years when vacationing in the Keys. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxing. Staff is always available and willing to meet/exceed our needs. The food is always good and the grounds are keep clean. Rainbow Bend is highly recommended.

Stayed in the two bedroom suites on main floor. Open door and you are on the beach. Comfortable chairs and nice sandy beach. The hideaway cafe is one of the best restaurants in the area. We Visit here every year and they don't disappoint with food preparation or fantastic views. Free use of kayaks and other water vehicles. Complimentary breakfast...

I have to say that I have mixed feelings about the Rainbow Bend Resort. What swayed us to stay there was the free use of the boat ( a big deal ) and the free breakfast and it being right on the water ( also a big deal) ! The resort needs an update, no doubt about it. Simple things...
