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 (they are well published though) also call and ask if they have things like coolers, appliances etc before you go out and buy it. The BBQ pit was awesome, a great place to meet ppl and make friends. I will definately stay here again.

Room Tip: Get one of the cottages, top floor with balcony

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.

Very friendly staff and helpful,the rooms are clean and spacious.
Like to go out on the boats for fun and fishing,like the idea of the
complementary breakfast looking out to the ocean.The pool is very
clean,and they have a very nice restaurant with great food.

Absolutely horrible.... We arrived for a 2 night stay with another couple. The room was dirty still had toothpaste in the bathroom sinks from the previous guests. 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 and now we feel bad for our wives who wanted to go to another hotel as soon as we arrived because YES they were diagnosed with bed bugs. I called the resort and they acted as if they could care less.
Really would not recommend this place at all

Rainbow Bend

What can I say about Rainbow Bend Resort that I have not said before? This is my all-time favorite Key’s Resort. I know every time my husband and I have stayed here we are in awe of the old Florida charm. It is the perfect place to come if you need to refuel your body and soul… And just simply relax.
There are no pretenses here. Rainbow Bend has everything you need to enjoy the Key’s environment. Clean rooms, sandy beach, and a pool with a heated Jacuzzi. And if that wasn’t enough, there is an onsite restaurant “Hideaway Café” that is open to the public. And in addition to the above essentials, for every night you stay, you get a free breakfast and 4 hours free use of a 16 ft. Boston Whaler With all said, if you are looking for a luxury resort, with a crowded pool and beach, don’t stop here. But if you are looking to experience the real Key’s, friendly staff and a relaxing environment this is the place for you.

Room Tip: They are all good.

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 breakfast. The extra added bonus was Boston Whaler boats that come with your stay, and the open water snorkeling. We cannot speak highly enough about this resort. This was my first time in the Keys and after this experience, it definitely will not be my last time. We cannot wait for our next opportunity to stay at The Rainbow Bend Resort.
