We had a perfect weekend here. The staff is so friendly and very helpful. Used the boats one morning for an ocean swim. Great breakfast. Would definitely go back. Very nice rooms with an original Keys feel.

We were very glad we were able to find a place we could call our " little secret" . Ocean view, great breakfast included. The friendly staff makes it the "best place in the lower keys" having two little boys and being able to take them out on the boats to fishing on the docks at night made childhood memories... More

This is my 5th time back over the last 20 years. We love the location, very quiet but close enough to make day trips just about everywhere in the Keys. The selling point for me is the boats. Boat rentals in the keys are quite expensive so you really need to factor that into the price to see you're getting... More

Came for Memorial Day weekend was surprised by the convenience of the amenities provided by the hotel. Had such a great time at the marina, the boat was included in our stay. Great rooms, beautiful pool and grounds. Will definitely come again!

It is not often you can truly say you get what you paid for... At first the prelimanary research of hotels in the area and prices where hard to under stand. But whoever rated Rainbow Bend a 2 does not truly understand what it means to have the "keys experience". You are greated with the most warming and helpful staff.... More

Visited the Rainbow Bend in October of 2013 with my husband and our dog. We had the greatest time! We stayed in a jacuzzi room and relaxed, and had such a great time out on the water with our dog in the Boston Whaler provided. Dinner at the Hideaway was a plus.
