The Island Bay Resort was a beautiful, relaxing stop on our way to Key West. We only could stay one night, but wish we could stay more! The grounds are beautiful with gorgeous trees, flowers, and plants all around. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. We loved our private deck-every room has one. Every room has their own charcoal grill, which we didn't use. The owners and staff are great, friendly people.
The best part of the resort was the beautiful private beach. And I mean private--only one other couple (also guests) were on the beach. It is small, but adequate and clean. Beach chairs and lounges are available to use. Take a walk out on the dock and you will spot many fish in the calm, warm water. My husband and I took advantage of the kayaks available for use to check out the surrounding area by water. Snorkel gear is also available to use.
For dinner and breakfast the following morning we ate at Chad's--a very short walk away. Excellent food and service.
Don't miss the Island Bay Resort in Tavernier. So worth a stop for even a night. If you are driving south towards key west it is right across from the Dairy Queen--if you miss it turn around! We loved it there.
