Never fished the Keys before until my trip there in April '14. Caught a lot of different fish everyday including yellowtail snapper. Free boats with rental was big plus and very convenient. Rooms were clean, restaurant food excellent, and hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. I'm planning my second trip there this year as we speak.

everyone there was very helpful & friendly & the fact that you get a boat to use daily { just pay for gas } is fantastic . restaurant could be cleaner & updated but food is good . they were very flexible with their rooms .

We stayed at Rainbow Bend for three nights and it was a beautiful old classic keys resort. The rooms were nice, but the location was the key. You got half day boat rental also + breakfast. Id go back there again in a heart beat.

I stayed here AUG 2014. It was a family vacation. This little resort was great. It has a pool, hot tub, bar, restaurant, power boats (snorkeling or fishing) kayaks, snorkel gear etc. It was reasonably priced compared to other resorts in the area. The staff overall was extremely friendly. If you book here be aware of the stringent cancelation rules...

Had a great time. Excellent location and great little hideaway. Very helpful and friendly staff. Great place to go for quiet and relaxation. Not having to worry about making breakfast was a bonus. Access to a boat everyday is another nice touch especially if you came to fish. Will definitely go back. Allison M.

The matresses were stained and had very musty odor. After the first night the women woke up with small bites on legs after the second night there were more. Went to urgent care...

We stayed at Rainbow Bend this past weekend. It was the most wonderful experience we have had on a vacation so far. The staff were so helpful, friendly, and accommodating, which only added to the experience. The room was quaint, clean, quiet, and comfortable. The view beautiful, from the room, and from The Hideaway Café, which makes a wonderful complementary...

My husband and I stayed here last weekend. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely go back someday. The service was great. The scenery was gorgeous. The complimentary boat rental is a steal. The pool and rooms were very clean. Includes a complimentary breakfast in the Hide Away Caf'e, which was delicious. No complaints here.
