Island Bay Resort is a little slice of Heaven!! From the moment you turn into the driveway you are transported to the most relaxing tropical island. You truly feel like you've been swept away. The owners, Mike & Carol, go above and beyond to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable! We would highly recommend staying here on your next trip...

We loved this resort so much we booked a sixth night. Everything is exactly as described in previous reviews. Peaceful, beautiful and meticulously maintained. Although the suites are compact, you will find everything you need and plenty of storage. Beds are very comfortable and thorough cleaning service each day. The beach is pristine and the chairs and hammocks are plentiful...

This is a really quaint roadside motel a few hours into the keys. The reason this place gets such good reviews is because the owners go the distance. You get a personalized note, the rooms feel hand-decorated and the whole setup feels like Baby Boomer Americana crossed with Margaritaville. This place isn't perfect, nor is it a resort but I...

The Guy Harvey Resorts sits right on the water making every room just steps away from the pool, the beach and the grill. The Islander has 3 pools including a Salt Water, Fresh Water and hot tub giving you lots of choices for getting wet. Additionally, there is a huge beach area with ample number of chairs (but it does...

We stayed on our way down to Key West and on the way back, one night each way. We were very pleased with the immaculate upkeep and presentation in the rooms. Carol and Mike were gracious hosts and filled us in on all we needed to know for the area. We left an item in the unit accidentally when we...

We stayed at Island Bay Resort in Jan. 2016. As I plan our next vacation to this resort, I realized I never wrote a review. We loved the beautiful and tranquil resort! We loved the private cottages. We entered to Jimmy Buffet music and beautiful, tropical decor. We barbecued, played bocce, baggo, laid in the hammocks, went out on the...

Friendly and accommodating owners/hosts Carol and Mike have succeeded creating the makings of a great, simple, beachy, authentic and tropical bungalow resort right off the main strip here, just south of Key Largo! From the awesome palm tree and paver approach to the modest but very useable beach (lounging, snorkeling, kayaking, paddle board!) this mini resort has everything you'll want...

We had a very nice stay at this resort. We arrived late, and when we turned into the property, we were delighted with the charming setting: stone pavers, lots of lush tropical plants, magical lighting, and a dreamy pathway down to the bay where underwater lights shone through clear water off the dock. There aren't many beaches in this area,...

My husband and I came here in June 2016 for an anniversary get away, and this resort was perfect. It was a great place to come for relaxation and a beautiful beach view. The owners were so easy and helpful to work with when reserving our rooms, and checking in. Our room was beautiful and very clean. When we checked...
