Ibis Bay is exactly what you dream of when you imagine Key West. It's a friendly, quirky resort with design and colors inspired by 1950s Havana. The landscaped white sand beach leads right up to the beachfront guest rooms, and guests can jump right into the beautiful bay for swimming, snorkeling and take jet skis, kayaks or paddle boards right from our dock! The staff are all Key West locals who love the island and want our guests to enjoy their stay. We have exclusive attractions like our poolside Dive-In Movies every Wednesday night on a 20ft screen by the pool, plus Nightboarding nightime LED-lit paddleboarding and kayaking! Wildlife abounds on our grounds including huge tortoises, lots of large colorful parrots, local iguanas (don't touch!) and our namesake, the very pretty ibis birds. In the mood for some fun? Ask our Fun Desk concierge about our jet ski, scooter and electric car rentals on site plus paddle board, kayaks and kiteboard rentals on the beach. They can also recommend off-site activities, restaurants, tours and local attractions. We have 80 hammocks for lazing about, and an amazing restaurant called The Stoned Crab that has two of its very own fishing boats delivering fresh crab, shrimp, lobster and fish every day! What are you waiting for?

This place is a HARD NO on so many levels - to call this outdated motel a resort is laughable - and then to charge an additional $50 resort fee at check-in is completely unwarranted. Staff was rude at check-in, the room is basic and outdated (the bed doesn't even have a headboard - weird), the "patio" is essentially the parking lot and it's on top of the next door guest, the walls are super thin and you can hear the traffic, neighboring guests and the dumpsters being emptied at sunrise, the "beach" is a strip of sand on the waterway that collects trash runoff, and the only thing edible at the continental breakfast is coffee. I also felt sorry for the animals on site in cages. The only good thing I can say about Ibis Bay is that it has a shuttle to/from downtown. We used it a few times and found it to be convenient. I don't have high standards, and I understand a relax-y Key West beach vibe, but this place is NO x1000.

Hotel's Favourite
The amazing staff, from the restaurant to the accommodations, such as a stellar view of the lagoon and the pool, made this hotel a great experience. We plan on returning regularly! Shout out to the restaurant staff, the free shuttle service (our driver was awesome and entertaining), and the check-in staff for the great hospitality.

This place is substandard, absolutely overpriced. Bedcover had stains which looked like mold. Extremly noisy and old AC (slept only few hours with noise cancelation headphones on). Bathroom looked unpleasant. Courtyard view towards dumbster. Loud from bar/drunk people. Next level is camping in your car (might be more pleasant). Small beach, water did not look like you can swim there.

BEWARE, Unfriendly, rude Manager/ staff at front desk. Restaurant manager concerned with your stay Liked · The Cleaning and Maintenance manager and there staff, they even gave a rose on the bed for Valentine day. Location to downtown was good. Bus was available every hour until 10:00 pm Disliked · When we first got to the resort I went to the room and saw the Hammock, that was suppose to be outside the room was not there. When we walked out the sliding back door where the table and outside chairs were facing a tall fence in our face as a view. I went to the front office to see if I could change to another room and I was told by MANAGEMENT that because I booked with BOOKING.COM, I got that room and booking.com would be the only one that could change the room. I let that go! Next day was the Super Bowl Game, which was on Regular TV. The resort doesn't not have Cable TV...They only have HULA with NO local channels. We were very upset because we wanted to watch the game in our room or there bar area. I called the management again to see if we were doing something wrong with the TV, maybe that's why we could not get the LOCAL channel. The management first said they did not know how the TV works! Really!! After I asked the maintenance man to take a look at it, then management from the front desk came to the room to confirm no CABLE TV even on regular local stations. We ended up going to a bar down the street to watch the game instead of the comfort of our room! On the second night both our backs were hurting. Looked at the mattress and it was sagging in the middle. Complained to the front desk, the manager, asked for room change she was NOT friendly at all, said she could not change the room because I booked with BOOKING.COM I put in a complaint to change rooms with Booking.com and they said they would explain the problem with management to see if a room change. No answer from the hotel management. I then asked to cancel the rest of my stay with Booking.com, and rebook with another hotel. They put in a request and management NEVER corresponded back to Booking. com or myself. Just ignored us or our request. I then talked to the Manager of maintenance and she offered to change and put a new mattress in, Which was much better. On day three, my finesse was sitting on the chair in the room, Very cheap like, and the leg broke and he fell on the sliding glass door and sliced his hand open. I ran to the office for help, since there is NO PHONES IN THE ROOM. Management again, Well what would you like us to do? I said he needs medical maybe stitches. She said go the hospital but I can't leave the front desk. I said where is the manager, time 5:55pm...she left already! After 15 minutes or so the restaurant manager came to see how he was doing and wrote up a report. He was called from the maintenance guy after the restaurant manager left for home. He came back to the hotel to see what he could do. On there web site it shows phones in the room and there was not. Room 302 Pool was very cold not heated. No towels at the pool area, so I went to front desk to get fresh ones, since the service picked ours up in the room, and the office told me they do not give out towels. I would need to find housekeeping and they would get the towels for me!!

This is hands down the worst property in Key West. We didn’t ( My teenage son and I) even stay the night. We felt so unsafe we checked out and moved to another Hotel. ( Booked on Expedia and the Hotel has blocked my ability to review there ) I travel 3 months of the year and have stayed at over 30 hotels and cruise lines this year alone. This is the worst property I have ever stayed in. This is a Motel. All doors basically open up into a parking lot. When we arrived there was a Police cruiser stationed in the parking lot. We checked in went to the room. The door has old style knob and key, There was clear evidence someone tried to Jimmy the lock on more than one occasion. There was no further safety locks inside the hotel. Walls were dirty, edges of door frames engrained with dirt. Old fashion AC unit rattles away ( very loud ). The TV was the equivalent of a computer monitor. Went for dinner, came back and there was additional Police presence in the parking lot looking for someone who was clearly a problem. We paid over 500.00 ( 1 nt ) for this crap? You e been warned.

If you book here, be sure to ask for a room as far away from the on-site restaurant as possible. The music blares from its open-air restaurant until late in the evening, making it impossible to sleep. Also, calling it a "resort" seems like a stretch. We were disappointed in our stay and wish we had stayed somewhere else.

Room was very clean and just the right size for my husband and I. We enjoyed renting a golf cart for the week, spent evenings in the nice pool, and had key lime pie at the poolside bar. Highly recommend!
