Ibis Bay is a very good place to stay if your in Key West on business. The property is clean and very well maintained. There is a maintenance staff working all the time to keep the grounds clean, painted and picked up. It is not in the middle of the main tourist sites, however it is accessible by a complementary...

Easy to find, clean colourful rooms, if you are bayside then each room has a deck area, hammock and view across the water to ease you into the day. Free shuttle bus into town unto 9pm. Rooms are not big but are ok size wise

Although we stayed only one night, we enjoyed so much the hotel and The Stoned Crab restaurant. Front Desk staff was very polite and our waitress at The Stoned Crab was excellent. They have a "Life is Too Short Bus, which runs from the hotel to the downtown and back, so no worries to drive and get drunk. Definitely We'll...

I almost don't want to write this review for fear of helping to increase it's popularity so it's always full when we want to stay.

Exactly right! While our rooms are really cute, what's out on this great island is why you came all this way. With that said, we often have guests who say they spent all their days at the resort by the pool and had a ball. Thank you for staying with us. Next time you book, make sure you lets us...

Last weekend was my first trip to Key West, and instead of staying at a "standard" hotel, we decided to try Ibis Bay. I found Ibis Bay on google. Mixed reviews didn't scare me away...people are quick with the negatives, but slow with the positives. It was very easy to get to and is located away from all the "chaos"...

Let's start off with what you did right. The shuttle staff was friendly and the housekeeping staff visited the room daily to make the bed and leave towels. The disappointment comes when you arrive to check in. As others have stated, the office staff only handed me a key and took it back at the end. The value rooms are...

I am glad you liked our staff. To be fair, ALL the room floor-plans on our website are accurate within an inch or so. To make sure everything was accurate we hired an architect to draw the floor-plans. For those travelers who like to save money on hotel rooms and spend their savings outside, our smaller Value Rooms are perfect....

Hi, Thanks for staying with us. Its great to hear how much your son enjoyed the fish and the pool. Our internet wi-fi vendor came and checked the wi-fi signal in your room and it was strong.

Rooms were clean, staff was awesome and very friendly. We were worried about being far from Duvall Street but shuttle drivers (William and Edward) were fantastic. We had a very nice room with white sand beach and hammocks. Pool with night movies were nice touch. Really can't find anything bad or negative to say!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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? ... more   less
