This is our 2nd time here. Last year we stayed in Octagon Up and found it very nice. This year we came with friends so we stayed in Octagon Down which is a two bedroom. Must say Octagon Down could use a little refresh, but we still love coming here for the relaxing time. The Octagon building is somewhat remote...

Will be the last time here at "rainbow end" due to the fact that when we arrived toilet was broke. Man in the office acted as if it was my job to fix it when he brought a new flapper in . The beds are terrible . It seems that the restaurant " hideaway cafe" has good food but pricey...

First we were put off with 15% service fee, but were told all "resorts" in Keys charge resort fee. Had to park in unlit lot on far side of next hotel; room had coffee maker but no coffee; we asked and were told we would need to buy coffee or supply our own. Towels were so thin you could see...

A small, secluded resort that feels like your own private slice of the Keys. Quiet and relaxing. Absolutely loved having the use of a boat to go fishing or snorkeling. Staff was very helpful with fishing tips and any other questions we had. We have already booked our second trip and look forward to many more!

Great place to getaway in the keys, friendly staff, awesome to have the boats on hand. Restaurant is great to seat down and relax. Location is convenient travel travel time to any of the keys. I would recommend this place to anyone. Coming back February 2015 and staying here again for several days.

Our first trip to Rainbow Bend was in 1989. In my opinion there is no better place to relax and enjoy the sunshine. The price of the room includes a full breakfast and the use of Boston Whaler boats and kayaks for each night's stay. The staff is always friendly and very accommodating. The rooms are dated but comfortable. Rainbow...

For 200 dollars a night i think a person should at least expect comfortable beds, bed was lumpy and wobbly. stayed in room 2 4 nights, the concept is great but it has limitations. the boats are glorified jon boats with motors, you sit way to low in boat for comfortable fishing, no way you can stand up. the free...

For us anyway, there is no place in the keys you can get a boat, breakfast, and a nice room for the price. Eric was extremely helpful in pointing us to fish spots, wind or no fishfinder be damned! If you really fish, or want to get the family on the water for a ride, or drive your skiff to...

My wife and I returned to Rainbow Bend in Jan. of this year and had just as nice a time as we had in Jan. of 2014. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The guys taking care of the boat dock are on the money and quite helpful. (The fishing was pretty good,too.) Sombrero Beach is close by. A nice...

Really amazing place as long as you're not looking for an upscale room. Great boats/kayaks. Good breakfast. Docks, sand, view, nice people. Room is dated, and could use a new bedspread, mattress and AC unit (window unit). But new bathroom was nice!
