We stayed for a week in Room #23. It is "Old Florida" but was very clean and quaint. We had a lovely patio sitting area with a hot tub. There are plenty of places to sit and relax around the grounds, by the pool and beach area. The staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant is very popular and parking...

Small resort, secluded and quiet. We love the free boat rental and the fishing is great! You can also take the boat to a nearby spot to go snorkeling. We've stayed here twice and have booked our third trip. Nothing fancy but we love it here. Staff has always been helpful and friendly.

We stayed at Rainbow Bend 2 years ago and we went back last week for vacation. Yes it is "Old Florida" I'm fine with that, I mainly picked this place because of the free boat rental included with the room rate. HOWEVER, last time we stayed in room #6 and it was lovely. DO NOT STAY in room #19 it...

Old Florida style. Some of the rooms might be better but our room was called the Jacuzzi Room because it has that type bath tub. Lighting was very poor in the room and because of all the wood decor it was more like a cave. It did have a nice sitting area outside the room on a little patio. The...

We stayed on the bottom floor of the Octagon House (as my wife called it) Very nice, and walked right out to the water. No beach, per se, but still walked into the water for a bit. Kayaks, pool, hot tub, free breakfast. Enjoyed our stay.

Had a great time! This is a perfect starting point for the trip. The boat was fun, definitely wear sunscreen. I was kinda taken aback by the surprise fees at the beginning. It was a dealbreaker. but I actually enjoyed this location immensely. Would go there again. Just know when you book here taxes and resort fees excetera ran a...

Warning: I was offered incentive for 5 stars, so ratings may be skewed. Which is what we found. Nice, but certainly not 5 stars. Restaurant is top notch - excellent food and atmosphere. Beach is beautiful but not swimmable. Room was clean. Whole place is a bit run down. Excellent fishing resort, which is how it's listed. Excellent staff.

First off we are from Canada. We wanted to stay in Key West but with the dollar being as bad as it is for us we decided to stay an hour away. We found a place that was $160/night USD. I had some questions and called a few days after booking and the ‘nice’ lady on the phone upgraded us...

OK first if your looking for a 5 star, check another.... This is a typical, quaint Old Key West resort. Low key, laidback :) Yes some of the furniture is dated. Our bed was comfy, sheets were clean and smelled fresh, we had an efficiency apt which included a fridge, stove, micro and dishes, some silverware and a coffeepot.Was plenty...
