Have stayed at the Rainbow Bend several times and each time return for the "true" Keys feel and experience. This is a classic Keys place w/ very natural settings and a modest, come as you are vibe.

Spent our 10 year anniversary here. Was a wonderful time! Clean rooms, great staff! I work at a Marina so I know all about good customer service. Great, great place! :) Also great having a boat to use during your stay. Just have to pay for gas.

Rented the Octagon Down 2 BR for 4 nights (July 6-10, 2014) Unit is run down and antiquated. Had a musky-mold smell. Sheet rock walls were deformed in many areas, with botched repairs. The main air conditioner (wall unit in main area) kept tripping breaker and had to be reset 3 times a day. The breaker panel outside was rusty...

Peaceful. Quiet. Beautiful view. Boat usage was great. My 19, 20, and 21 year olds loved using the boats. Staff very nice and helpful. Safe environment. Beach. Stayed in two rooms: octagon down and upper apartment. Clean. Everything was there that we needed.

Great place! Super friendly staff, great restaurant, amazing views!!! I loved that we were able to use the motor boats for free!!! Close to everything we needed for a great getaway. Right off of the overseas highway but you wouldn't know it with all of the great Key's plant life.

We stayed at the Rainbow Bend Fishing Resort for the 4th of July and had a really great time! A lot of the bad reviews on here are about this place being old and run down, and YES it is kind of old and run down, but I really felt like that was the charm and character of the place....
