One of our most favorite places to stay while in the Florida Keys!! We plan on returning again and again!! The sunrises are amazingly beautiful and the boats add to the enjoyment!! The blueberry pancakes are worth getting up for!!

Robin Petit - Ft Laud
Rainbow bend is my favorite place in the middle Keys. I love the rustic charm, the soft sand and all the birds that visit the docks during the summer months. My husband and I call Rainbow Bend our Happy Place in the sun. We have been coming to this location since the 80s and it is always the same lovey piece of paradise. Thanks you for keeping true to the ole time Keys latitude. Tom and Robin Petit

Cheryl Malloy - Boston
My daughter Jackie and I absolutely LOVED our stay at Rainbow Bend! Our room #22 was spacious, comfortable, quiet and clean!! Not that we spent that much time there...lol, we were too bust enjoying all the amenities at Rainbow Bend! Just ask Eric what a fun time we had on the motor boats!! He said he'd be telling our story for a long time we laughed so hard:)) Jackie caught a baby hammerhead shark right off the pier! Breakfast included at the Hideaway Cafe was excellent. Staff was so attentive, Marsha and Tony went above and beyond in response to our wishes. There truly is a pot of gold at the end of this rainbow!! Thank you all so much, someday we'll be back!! Cheryl & Jackie <3

Leanna Jolly - Spartanburg SC

Paul Soini - Ravenna,Ohio
My wife and our friend visited your resort in the first week of April. We loved the beach, the pool, the boats, and especially the restaurant. Our daily breakfast was good and Billy, our server, was great. We ate dinner there three times and all of the dinners were super. All of the servers were nice and very knowledgable. The staff was very nice. Our boat usage was easy and fun. The boat staff was very friendly and helpful. We loved everything about the place.

Looks like a beautiful place .some where we would stay.

Robin Petit - Ft Laud
Love this Place. It is our go to lodging when we stay in the Keys. Good food with a great location. The Resort has a beautiful old Florida feel. Rooms are rustic, old Florida and Clean. For each night you stay you get a 4- hour use of a Boston Whaler that you can run out to the reef, drop a line and catch a delicious dinner. The resort is centrally located to just about anything you need. Shopping, sightseeing and just plain relaxing. Each time we leave to come home, we make plans to return. It is a little piece of heaven in the middle keys. We will be back.

Scott Heikkila - Marquette, MI
Stayed here for 3 nights in April of 2015. Everything was great! We really loved the boats waiting for us to use whenever we wanted. Me and my wife and kids caught hundreds of fish and had a blast. Mostly grunts and small snapper but we did manage to catch some small grouper and lost a few big ones. The dock hands were very friendly and accommodating. We took a day trip down to Key West and couldn't get back to Rainbow Bend quick enough. A much better atmosphere on Marathon Key! We had an awesome time and can't wait to come back someday soon!

Miranda Goulet - Goldsboro, NC
Having visited the keys many times, we typically research many new places to stay before committing. Never knowing what you'll actually get until you get there, it's a hard decision to make. However, we made an excellent choice in this case. We stayed in unit 13C the week of August 9th. It is a two bedroom, one and a half bath, oceanfront room. It has a kitchen, sitting area, and a private patio. Not to mention, we had the use of a boat for four hours per day! A couple hundred yards out and a right turn from the resort on the boat, and you'll find yourself on a sandbar surrounded by clear water. A little further out, there's a coral reef where many fished and snorkeled. The staff was incredibly nice, especially the guys at the dock. We will definitely return to Rainbow Bend.

Roger Sereni - Hamilton Twnshp , NJ
My wife and I stayed there back in May 2002 for our 10 yr wed. anniv. and everything about our stay was outstanding !! The room was very clean and well maintained !! The Hideaway Cafe was absolutely amazing !! Our FREE breakfast every morning was incredible and as for the food at night , OUT of THIS WORLD !!!!!! We decided to go up for a drink and maybe an appetizer but ended up having a meal and a drink instead !!!! The cook/chef came out to show another couple a steak that was quite large !!! Th couple declined having that steak for dinner !!! So when the cook/chef was walking by our table I could not resist myself I had to stop him and check that steak out and ask how many oz. the steak weighed !! And if my memory is correct the steak weighed approximately 56 oz. or 65 oz. !!! WOW !!!! Well , I had to order that monster of a steak and see if I could eat it in its entirety !!!!! I am a 5'8" - 145 lb. steak & potatoes eating man , back then I was approximately 160 lbs. to 165 lbs.!!!! Do the math !!!! The steak at either oz. weight is just under 5 lbs. or a bit over 5 lbs. so for every 1 lb of steak is an equivalent of 32 lbs. of me !!! LOL !!!! Absolutely nobody there thought I would be able to eat the whole thing, not only did I eat the entire steak but I also ate my 2 sides, as well as my soup & salad !!!!! Almost forgot about the 2 appetizers my wife and I split!!!!! Everything about that meal was amazing!!! The steak was cooked to perfection along with everything else !!! We plan on coming back in 2017 for our 25th wed. anniv. !!!!! WE CANT WAIT !!! See U then !!!!!

Our Happy Place Once again we spent a week at Rainbow Bend. It is ideally located and central to all the activities we love in the Middle Keys. We chilled out on the beach, spent time in the pool and lounged in the Hot Tub. We contemplated using the Boston Whaler to do a little fishing but never got around to it. We love Rainbow Bend and everything about it. The grounds, the staff, the beach, the wildlife and most importantly our time in the sun. Each time we leave we look for a reason to come back and we do.

Rhonda - Kentucky
We were here last year. I found everything I had forgotten on the web site. Great job. I cant wait to get back there in Feb for 10 glorious days. We booked before we left last year. The foods great too. Rhonda

Shane and Brandi Nowacki - Daytona beach Florida
My husband and I just stayed 4 days in paradise on our honeymoon. We are from Daytona beach fl. If you are like us and have a love for the beautiful water and fishing and serenity than you will love this place. It is not a fancy resort but it has an old keys charm that makes you feel as if you are in a world all of your own . We stayed in room 17. It is the room with be best view, has a kitchen and a comfy bed, is also right next to the pool/ jacuzzi and we got to take the boats out everyday we wanted to. The hideaway cafe upstairs is pricey but if you can spare the money then you should absolutely splurge and try there amazing food. If not there are also other less pricey places to eat close by. We are not people that go to fancy resteraunts, but it was amazing! (Plus they hooked us up with a little special surprise for our honeymoon. :) the whole staff is absuletly amazing. A special shout out to tony and Eric for hooking us up and taking care of us our whole stay and making our already perfect honeymoon that much better!! :) we plan on taking our daughter here on our next vacation. We will be back here every chance we get. Thank you rainbow bend resort!! Shane and brandi Nowacki 2014. Ps.. Def check out Bahia Honda state park while your there .. Beautiful family park.

Robin Petit - Fort Lauderdale
Rainbow Bend What can I say about Rainbow Bend Resort that I have not said before? This is my all-time favorite Keys Resort. I know every time my husband and I have stayed here we are in awe of the old Florida charm. It is the perfect place to come if you need to refuel your body and soul& And just simply relax. There are no pretenses here. Rainbow Bend has everything you need to enjoy the Keys environment. Clean rooms, sandy beach, and a pool with a heated Jacuzzi. And if that wasnt enough, there is an onsite restaurant Hideaway Café that is open to the public. And in addition to the above essentials, for every night you stay, you get a free breakfast and 4 hours free use of a 16 ft. Boston Whaler With all said, if you are looking for a luxury resort, with a crowded pool and beach, dont stop here. But if you are looking to experience the real Keys, friendly staff and a relaxing environment this is the place for you.

Veronica McLemore - Brooksville, FL
Stayed July 18-21. It was awesome! Staff was wonderful and room was great too. We will definitely be staying again....soon!!!

Jason Tabasky - Coconut Creek, Fl
Stayed June 20-22 . Had a great time. Such a nice find on Travelocity. Used the boat on our last day and basked in the sun on a sandbar. Thanks to everyone that made our stay so enjoyable Hope to return again Shout out to Marsha! Jason and Ellen Tabasky

Kimberly - Okeechobee
My family and I had an excellent time at the Rainbow Bend Resort and Marina this past weekend. It is a small personal resort, quiet and relaxing. The staff was wonderful! Breakfast was a delight and very good. Use of the boats was wonderful, as the dive boats in that area are pricey and we got to snorkel from the same reefs as them for a quarter of the cost. The pool was relaxing and clean. As far as the rooms, mine was cleaned daily, had fresh towels, did not smell and even though it was below the restaurant by the end of the day we were so tired nothing bothered us not even the noise. There is no doubt that this is my new weekend destination when I go south to the Keys.

Robin Petit - Fort Lauderdale, Fl
My husband and I returned for a 4 day stay in paradise. We were joined by my sister and brother-in-law who have never stayed overnight in the Keys. We simply loved, loved, loved Rainbow Bend. It was comfortable with a beautiful environment. Very "Old Florida" which to us was charming. Breakfast and the use of a Boston Whaler you can't get any better. I would highly recommend Rainbow Bend if you want to experience Old Florida Charm and a bit of Paradise. We will definitely be back.

Luigi Coppiano - Florida
My first stay at rainbow bend was in 1997, i was still a very young child but i will never forget my experience there, especially the second time my parents brought me there in 1998. now years later i am taking my own family there for vacations and it is just like i remember. :) Staff was great, very accommodating, and the view is just as i remembered.....BEAUTIFUL!! I'm actually planning another stay coming up at the end of the month. The wife and I could not be more excited :) thank you for being such a positive memory from my childhood as well as creating more now that I am an adult.

nancie - brooklyn, ny
My husband and I were looking for a place that was more laid back and relaxing and this was perfect. Staff was great, very friendly and accommodating. Rooms clean, food was great. Menu for free breakfast was an actual breakfast, not just bagels, or precooked food. Overall couldn't have picked a better place, looking forward to returning next year.

Mary - Wisconsin
I quaint hotel with a private beach and free use of the small fishing boats you just pay for the gas. Perfect if you are looking for old Fla. charm and character. Some updating is suggested mainly the bed. The private patio and jacuzzi was nice to have. It was a birthday trip for me and extra special customer service was provided. What this hotel lacks in swank they more than make up for outstanding customer service. I would stay here again if I return to the area!!

David - Port St Lucie
I have stayed with Rainbow Bend 3 times so far. Each time the service and amenities have been great. Planning on another visit... Best in the area

caprice malson - nj

The Bradleys - United States

Susanconners - Medfordma

Cindy Weidmann - Tacoma WA
What a great place! Friendly people, always helpful. Cozy and comfortable. Nice location and great fishing. Nice docks and use of boats and other watercraft. We had a wonderful time there. And the food, OMG, it was fantastic. We would highly recommend this wonderful place. They were everything they claimed to be and more. We had a vacation of a lifetime there. Totally awesome. Thanks to all of the wonderful staff and a special hello to Tony. He was so very helpful, beyond expectations. Thanks Tony.

David Morgan Johns - USA
My wife and I have stayed at Rainbow Bend several times and have always enjoyed the rooms, the friendly staff and the consideration which we have always been shown. We are planning another trip the the Keys this fall and will stay at Rainbow Bend. Rainbow Bend is close to Key West and the Northern Keys too. It is in a great location and a short drive to any destination one would like to visit.

Charlotte Greenway - UK
Thanks so much for such a lovely stay. It was wonderful. Really relaxing. Everyone was so helpful and friendly and we loved the use of the boats to go off and explore on. The restaurant was also fantastic. so thank you. Can't wait to come back.

LJ Levenson - Boynton, fl
We had the best vacation of our lives at Rainbow Bend. We've been all over the world and Rainbow bend was the most spectacular. We stayed with our five kids in Octogon Down. We were comfortable. The place was clean. The boat was great.Highly recommend a vacation there,

Doug Russell - Fort Lauderdale, FL
Just left yesterday after 2 great days & nights. Wonderful getaway for our anniversary. Could not have had a better time or meals at Hideaway Cafe. Heading back down soon.

Eva Motley - Concord, NC
My boyfriend, Bobby Cox, has stayed with you in the past and wanted me to experience the keys as well. I had an amazing time, loved the resort, loved the boats, loved the food from the Hideaway Cafe, and most importantly loved the people working there. You really made in enjoyable. Than you for a wonderful time. See you again soon.....

Elise - New Jersey
This is the Best! My husband stayed at Rainbow Bend Sep 2012 for 4days 3nites. We have stayed in several high scale places in FL and out of the country. We are extremely satisfied with this place. The privacy the staff. Sonya, Marsha, Mike and Tony they were friendly, helpful. I lost a diamond earing in the pool and a month later I received the earing by certified mail. That is commitment to their guests!!! We are currently planning our next vacation, and can't wait to comeback.

David Morgan Johns - S.C.
My wife and I have stayed at other motels in the Keys and only stay at Rainbow Bend now. The rooms are very comfortable, the people are great and the atmosphere is quiet and relaxing. Stay at Rainbow Bend and you won't regret it. Great beach too.

Phyllis Scheidt - tampa (born) st pete live
Excellent. We are military and have been all over this country for 30 years. We have stayed in countless hotels/resorts between moves and vacations. This has to be the most relaxing place I have ever been in. This is the kind of Mom and Pop place I was looking for. You can walk around in your t-shirt and not feel like you are frowned upon. You can truly relax here. No big crowds! No overly fancy rooms. You know you are at a beach place. Which is comforting. All staff were friendly and were both welcoming and very helpful hosts/hostesses. I hope this place in the Keys never turn into abig development. If someone want high-rises, noise and crowds there is Miami

Donna Hollaway - White, GA
My husband and I had a great time, but the reason that we will be back is because of the awesome staff. We felt like we were staying with family. My husband lost his glasses and could not see to appreciate the water, sunset, all of the beauty of the Keys. I had mentioned this to Sonia, in the office, our son overnighted the glasses to us but we were still concerned whether we would get them or not being in Marathon and it was Sat.. Around 11 am Sat. there was a knock at the door. It was sweet Sonia with a package containing my husbands glasses! She semmed just as happy as we did to see them arrive. Jack,our dockmaster, was so patient going over the map for our safe boating and fishing experience. He got us all rigged up and off we went. He knew his stuff. We caught yellowtail snapper, a small shark, grouper and a big blue fish. The restaurant was wonderful. I had the early bird for $15.95. The meal consisted of warm bread with a side dish of a bruschetta topping, black bean soup, caesar salad and my choice a pasta dish with a light pink sauce and loaded with seafood. The owner was visiting tables genuinely concerned about your dining experience. The service was attentive and could not have been better. The lovely Ashley our housekeeper, did more than just laundry and cleaning rooms. We were looking to do some off shore fishing and she was so helpful trying to find us the best boat to go on for what we wanted to do. Everyone really cared about us, you don't find that much anymore. Like I said we felt like family. It was a wonderful getaway and we will definetly be back!

Dennis Overall - Loogootee Indiana

Dave Levy - Pittsburgh, Pa

Gerry and Lydia - Ontario
Old Florida at its best. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The rooms are clean. We felt like we were alone there. It is quiet and relaxing. The beach is great. The breakfast at the Hideaway was good. Their dinners are fabulous. Make reservations. It is good to have boats to use so don't forget your rods. We could not have asked for a better time. Can't wait till next year. Don't pass this place up.

Stephen Meadowcroft - London
A big thank you to all staff at Rainbow Bend - you helped to make our new year stay very memorable. It was like going back in time 30 years - relaxed, casual and extremely fiendly

Jan - Tybee Island, GA
Love your website - planning a trip for this May - Left a message last week - have not heard back - will call back tomorrow about booking? Could we do a week at one efficiency - but rent ajoining room for the first 3-4 days for soninlaw and wife - or does that have to be weekly as well?

Carina Mort - Sweden
My husband and I spent a few nights at Rainbow bend resort. We had a wonderful time. The staff is really great! We had a poolside room and sitting outside in the evenig watching the moonglow was magic! We can really recomend it.

Carol - Palm Beach Gardens
Stayed on the Resort last weekend and loved it will surely come back again

Melissa Rau - Mooresville, N.C.
Rainbow Bend was a relaxing and fun experience for our family and our friends that came with us. We loved the fishing boats, the pool, and the restaurant upstairs! We plan to go back next spring. The laid back atmosphere really helped my usually stressed husband calm down and enjoy some family time. Thanks Rainbow Bend!

Steve Yant - Mooresville, NC
What a fantastic family getaway in the keys! Friendly and accomodating folks, clean and relaxing ammenities, fabulous cafe dining for breakfast and dinner (ask for Nick....) and the fishing boats and dock hands (Tony) were the best! A must stop in Marathon. The Yants will be back next Spring Break....if not sooner!! Thanks to all for making our stay a memorable one! We have passed on the word about the Rainbow since returning!!

Mary - Titusville, FL
One of the best kept secrets in the Keys! We are returning after 12 years, with children this time, and can't wait to share the experience and warmth of the Rainbow Bend with them. The food and ammenities are worth the trip. See you soon!

Amanda - Nevada
Great place! Stayed there and loved it. Amanda

Maya - Cohasset, MA
We had a wonderful long weekend with the folks at Rainbow Bend. We relaxed on our beach side patio every night. The fishing was extraordinary. The staff at the Rainbow Bend treated us like we were Very Important People(VIP all the way). We want to give a special thanks to Karl (with a K) for taking excellent care of our boating needs and making us feel like we were one of the family. Also...the Hideaway Cafe and staff are truly the best on the Keys! Thank you everyone at Rainbow Bend...be sure you'll see us next year!

Catherine - Jacksonville NC
We will be there in 38 days! The kids are counting down! While I haven't dealt with you all directly, my travel agent said that if your accommodations are only half has nice as the helpful staff, it is going to be a WONDERFUL trip!You have gone out of your way already to help me and my very LARGE family have a very reasonable vacation! Can't wait to get there!!

Bill & Linda Cotte - New Jersey
What a GREAT place to stay. Our room was spotless and comfortable. The staff couldn't be any nicer. We plan on coming back...

Cathie - Maryland
Just got home after staying at the resort for 3 nights. My husband & I were both impressed; room was nice, staff was very friendly & helpful, breakfast was delicious and the use of a boat just topped it all off. Very private & relaxing, but close to great restaurants and various activities. Can't wait to return!

warren millikan - tybee island ga
My girlfriend and I stayed here for a week in March 2010. Best vacation we`ve ever taken. Our room (French) was great. The staff was wonderful. She loved the hot tub. The free boat everyday made the trip for me. Already planning our return in May.

Judy Koltunski - DeLeon Springs FL
Our trip included four adults and two young children. We had a great two bedroom cottage that was very clean. The staff was very nice and our breakfasts in the restaurant were excellent. Unfortunetly, we didn't have enough time to use all the extras that came with our room. We hope to go back again.

pat - indianapolis
I stayed at the Rainbow Bend resort for two nights in early July. The place was clean and well kept and the staff was very nice. Then on the second night, I went up to the Hideaway Cafe on the second floor of the main building in the resort and I was blown away. Truly 5 star quality food in this tiny little resort. I will come to this resort and this restaurant every time that I am in the area.

Alan Cooke - Florence, SC
Just Dined at the Hideaway Cafe. Were a little skeptical as we drove in but were pleasantly surprised by the wonderful view, delicious meal, and impeccable service. The filet was a great med rare, the roast duck was fall off the bone tender, and the vegetables perfectly al dente. Not 'another meal', but a true dining experience. Thanks!! 6/25/10

John Karamol - Ohio
What a first trip! Rainbow bend gave us all that we could have asked for and more! the staff did everthing you could asked and were very helpfull in letting us know the places to go and how to feel at home!! We WILL BE BACK SOON!!!! thanks again John/Nicole

Cheryl Eggleston - Michigan
Sonya at the desk was exceptional to work with. She does a great job and made our stay a lot of fun.

rob & robin - cocoa fl.
Stayed 2 nights in french room we had a great time. This year will stay 1 wk. This is a great place to stay.

Jack & Rose - Sebring, Fl
My husband and I stayed at Rainbow Bend a few month back and had a wonderful time! The food,staff,scenery and accommodations were out of this world! We really enjoyed taking the boat out and cruising the waterway. Awesome breakfast. Look forward to coming back soon! 03/22/2010

Sherry - Kalamazoo, Michigan
Stayed at the octogon upper level. Pros: VERY CLEAN and spacious. Full size Fridge, 2 tvs, 2 couches, full stove/oven, microwave, huge dining table, balcony area with seats. We loved Deborah our housekeeper and Josh our server at the hideaway cafe, both were friendly happy people to be around. The boats were always available for use. Played giant checkers, sat in the hot tub and relaxed. Nice swings to watch the tide. Great view. The hideaway was never busy unlike all the surrounding area restaurants. We loved watching how the tide would go out, we could explore where the water once was. Cons: Parking was difficult, I wish each unit had assigned parking. No wifi in our room- didn't need it anyway, but would have been nice.

chase - cape coral
we had so much fun at rainbow bend! Everything was wonderful from the food, the beach, the service, the fishing, the kayaking, etc. I would reccomend this resort to anyone who is looking for a good time.

Emily - Ohio
We stayed for 5 days at the end of December. Everything was wonderful! We enjoyed the kayaks, beach and the daily complimentary breakfast.

Michael W. - Fort Lauderdale
Must read this: Got word from some ol'coot that works at the Marathon Official Information place that the restaurant was good. Well, the food was by far, the best I've ever tasted. I've dined all over the country on many many different occasions. Nothing, I say nothing can come close to the food and the presentation of the food at the hideaway cafe. If you thought you've eaten, well you haven't until you tried this place. You don't have to read the rest of this but I would like to share: I flew my girlfriend down to Marathon in a small single engine Cessna 172 and had a wonderful flight following the chain of the Keys from South Florida. We stayed at Hawks Cay. I was not impressed. We tried the food at Hawks Cay. I was not impressed. The dolphin experience at Hawks Cay, pretty fun and entertaining. Waverunner tour of duck island and its surrounding, EXCELLENT. I believe when I fly back down again, I will DEFINITELY be eating at Hideaway Cafe, EVERY night. BTW, the staff provided EXCELLENT personal and friendly service.

Ellie, Donnie Witham& ,Rocky, Christine Warden - Naples Fl
We were VERY Happy to find you-- We were staying at a "luxury resort' near by and happened upon the Hideaway club -- had the best meals-- all 4 were perfect- the chef is a wonderfully tallented women... Wine selection was great. service superb--we came back the next night to make sure it was real-- It was. Can't say enough good things and can't wait to get back. thank You for rescuing our weekend...

Steve & Melody - Marion, Illinois
Steve and I stayed at Rainbown Bend last year in May 2008. We love nit. The people are nice and very helpful. Getting a boat was just up our ally. We want to pick up and go this weekend if there are any availabilities. In fact we are going and we are goin to take his brother Eric. See you soon Rainbow Bend.

CHARLES FARMER - oakland park, fl

Michelle - Florida
The resort was Great! Just what we were looking for! Close to Restaurants, Beaches and supermarkets but felt a millon miles away. The room was well maintained and clean. They really exceeded my expectations. Skip the Hideaway, breakfast was fine. Dinner was over priced for Filet Mignon that had been previously frozen. Waitstaff was not attentive and over whelmed. I had to ask to have dishes removed from our small table for 2. It was too bad great location for a restaurant.

Tim - South Florida
One of my past customers has stayed with you many times and always had a great time. I like the idea of not having to tow my boat all the wat down there.

Anne - Boston MA
Stayed April 2007. Had a wonderful time. Went with our then 6 year-old son. Really fun being about to use the boats. Great location. Lots to do, or just relax. Very friendly and helpful hosts. Highly recommend.

Melody Brown - Marion, Illinois 62959
Hello, e stayed here in May of 08 and enjoyed every minute of it.we found it to be quite a peaceful vacation and very enjoyable. An extra thank you to all the staff and people we met. Looking forward to doing this again soon. your friends, Steve and Melody

Pat Epping - New Jersey
This is a great little resort, old style florida keys. Nothing fancy as is doesn't need it, the weather and the lifestyle is all you can ask for.

p.schroeder - cocoa,fla.
I have not stayed there in a couple years but I can,t wait for my next trip.

Leon Braat - The Netherlands
Marie-Anne and I spend 6 days and nights at the Rainbow Bend in the first week of May 2008. We had a great time. For us the charm of the place is the combination of relaxed atmosphere, due to friendly people helping you at the restaurant, the office, and with launching you with the boats, with superb views, nice places to sit and enjoy them, good food and well kept rooms. We understood it is a fisherman's paradise; well, even though we didn't fish, we, as professional biologists, thoroughly enjoyed the wildlife in and around the water that is quite present at all times of the day. There is a perfectly good sandy beach, but the fun is around it. This was our third time in 5 years in the Keys, and we recommend it to people of all ages, with and without kids, fishing or just watching !

Mark and Laura Robare - Villa Park, IL
What a Great place to get away from the big city rush and enjoy the relaxed Island feeling. We only stayed two days and would have loved staying longer but work and kids were calling us...better yet, Draging us back. Spend at least a week. We ran into a lot of European and south American workers in The Key West area. Be prepaired to get a lot of strang looks when you ask simple Questions. More than likely they have a few weeks or months English training. Stay in Marathon or at the resort they have just about all you need with a great and friendly staff. Prices are not that bad and they don't rake you for a Coka-Cola or candy bar.

David, Dian, & Riane - Indianapolis, IN
We just got home Sunday morning, and miss Rainbow Bend already! Riane really misses chatting with the office lady (and the jewelry). Thanks so much for the wonderful time. We hope to be back before the year's up. We have some wonderful picture's that we'd like to share. God bless you.

julie case - Ft Lauderdale
This is the BEST great facilities.... wonderful staff. And as my friend from S S Africa said "the best Lamb she has had in the US"...I really liked the seafood Wellington and some catch of the day...I am sure what ever is excellent....go with what ever they recommend.... Very laid back ..... absolutely my kind of place!!!! Hated to leave I cannot wait to return...... Thank you again!!!!!!!

Tim Murphy - Ft.Lauderdale
Just spent 4 days 3nites at Rainbow bend!!!! The first afternoon when we arrived was dark and raining we were so depressed!!! But the next morning the SUN was out and Rainbow Bend was just Great!!! The sandbar was just great the best Ive seen in all of the keys!! Ive been going to the keys for years and this was the best! The pool and Hot tub were just great!! The place is a little old but that does not matter the rooms were all clean and the place was quite and just the best. The boats were old but fit the ticket just fine . We fished for two days caught plenty of fish just were the dock guys told us to go! But for those people the wrote negative reports on trip advisers sour grapes who knows what we and our two best friends just had the very best time a Rainbow Bend and will be going back again in the near future

Joan Oliver - Conyers
Was there 5 years ago with family and want to get back with my children for some snorkling and much need peace and quiet.

Jennifer Mehrer - 7HYy4nh3
I was a great place. We would go again in a second, thanks for the great time

Pam Burrell - UK
Very glad we came in,you had the perfect room, think it was B just opposite the office at the end facing the beach. Beautifully equiped,and every comfort, the bed was fab, and the sheets were soft and inviting, and a wonderful breakfast to follow the next morning! i only have one complaint, and that is we wish we could have stayed for a week or more instead of the one night, but we only saw you as we were leaving the keys.We met some interesting people all in one evening, people seem to just stop for a chat which we loved.Thank you all.

Mark Gonos - Binghamton, NY
I've been down to the Florida Keys and Key West a hundred times and still the best of everything can be found at Rainbow Bend Resort. Some of the greatest fishing on earth is just steps away from your cozy pad right on the beach. Privacy, gourmet food, friendly staff and everything you need without ever leaving the resort. Included in our stay was a new Boston Whaler skiff, gassed up and ready to go whenever you are, for fishing or sightseeing. I'm a master captain and fishing guide in Alaska and on Lake Okeechobee in Florida. For the money this is one of the best values for a vacation that you can get. Can't wait to get back there have a great dinner, sip a cocktail on the beach, go fishing and just relax.

Beverly - DC
What a joy to meet our cousins for a few relaxing days at RB! We shared laughter, glasses of wine and conversation on our porch overlooking the ocean each evening. I appreciated both your wireless connection and the swim in your pool each morning. Beverly in DC

Deanna - St Augustine, Fl

Kristina Butcher - Arizona
Just got back from staying the most enjoyable week ina very long time. From the moment we got there is was great!!! The staff was outstanding most enjoyable people to talk too and took the time to get us whatever we needed. The deck hand Jack made our days with his excitment for fishing and being to help get us the best fishing charter captian down there. Thank you so much Jack, BJ Myers was the best. We are lookin forward to returning in June with the kids this time. The whole resort is so laid back you cant help but have a great time. P.S. Jack, Bruce did catch big fish just like you promised. Wish we were able to tell you all about it. sorry we werent able to say bye. THANKS FOR ALL, THE BUTCHER'S

Mindy - Florida now
Stayed there while on vacation in 2006 - what a great time. Stayed in the Hide-away. It was a bit windy for taking the boat out, but met great people and relaxed. Went back to Vermont in a snow storm and now we live in Boynton Beach, FL. We will be back for a visit for sure. Food was awesome and so was the staff.

Dr. Julio E. Castillo - Chicago, Illinois
The Rainbow Bend is Heaven on Earth! Wonderful, spectacular, and beautiful.

len slote - georgia
stayed with you a couple of years ago and still talk about your place

Becky & Scott Deline - Newark NY
We stayed here for 5 nights and 6 days for our honeymoon and had the very best time! So peaceful and quiet, the rooms were clean all the time and the cafe has wonderful food and service. We fished every morning off of the boats and relaxed every afternoon in the pool. We plan to come back on our five year anniv.

Paula & Dean - United Kingdom
We stayed in the rainbow bend resort june 2007, The free boat with the room won Dean over and me the view, It is a lovely place to stay, and the boat was ideal for sun bathing! the next time we are in florida we will no doubt come back. You will probably remember us, we are the ones that locked the keys in the trunk of the Mustang (thanks for your help with that!)hope to see you again soon

Mr. & Mrs. McGarry - Jacksonville, FL
We have been coming to Rainbow Bend since 2004 - It's been awhile since our return! Look for us this summer. We always feel like "family" when we are guests - and everyone has made our trips a blast. See ya soon!! Terry and Amanda

Patty - Minnesota
We stayed at The Rainbow Bend in February of 2001. My husband proposed to me on the beach straight out from the courtyard. We have fine memories of our stay. We can't wait to return. The breakfast is great!

John Boyd - Delaware
I had a nice relaxing time at the resort. Be sure to ship your rods and not rely on the airlines. The boats and fish provided me with a great time I caught Hog Snapper on the boat and on the plate at the hideaway cafe. My compliments to Carl on a very good meal with scallops and shrimp!

su and dennis just - boynton beach fla
W wanted old time Keys atmosphere , fishing, beach and sun. We got our wish at Rainbow Bend. Needed a place to go with our pet, we found it. The staff is INCREDIBLE. We were there at Easter, couldn't wait to go back on Memerial Day. LUV IT

Janet & Vince - Orlando, Fl
My husband & I just got home from staying at your resort for a week. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. A second honeymoon. We had the most enjoyable stay at Rainbow Bend. Our room was poolside with ocean view. Very clean and very private. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Your location is perfect for easy traveling to the lower keys for the day as well as the upper keys for the day. The Hide Away Cafe food was good as well. For anyone who is reading this review and is looking for a quiet and relaxing get-a-way to the keys without a ton of other people sharing the same spot then this place is truly a must stay.

veronica - philadelphia
looking forward to coming and staying with you. just need to get alittle more info.

Melissa - Texas
I just got off the phone with Linda, and I must say that it was the most pleasant conversation I have had all day, she was very helpful and informative. I am looking forward to our stay

Wow, what a great place. We had a little efficiency right on the beach. Gourmet dinner right on the premises. We had our own skiff fueled and ready to go in the morning. We fished the reef a mile or two out and caught a ton of fish. Did it all again the next day. Highly recommended!

Dick & Wendy Reese - Wisconsin

I saw an ad years ago for your place, probably on a trip to the keys or in a fishing magazine and always wanted to come down. Now I'm looking for a quick/fun trip for my birthday and managed to find you again. Looks great, just our style, hope we make it this fall.

rick white - south carolina
Thank you for the enjoyable 2 night stay on our recent vacation. Your resort was not only comfortable but we found our stay to be very relaxing. The price was a good deal considering the boats were included with the rooms. I would definataly recomend you to our family and freinds.

Jason & Kimberly Tippin - Brooksville, Fl
We stayed at your resort for our honeymoon this past April 30 - May 3. We loved it. The perfect spot. Our room opened right onto the beach and what a view!!! Very nice staff and facility

Laura Thompson - Grapevine TX
Planning our first trip to the Keys and found your site. Your place looks wonderful, just what we were looking for. Reservations so easy, and an especially helpful staff member helped us choose the best unit. Can't wait for our trip in May. See you then.

My husband & I have stayed at Rainbow Bend with our 2 sons' several times. We will be moving to NE Tennessee in June and had to come back one more time before we leave FL.So, we will be there 5/5-5/7/06. It's what my husband wanted to do for his birthday (5/7). We have wonderful memories from each time we have been there! Do you offer anything for birthday's (like a cake in the room etc.)? Please let me know. Thank You. See you in May 2006! Sincerely, Dawn Bagley

Al & Becky Nunn - Usta
I hesitate to say how much we've enjoyed our multiple stays at RB since 1990. Afraid more people will come & ruin it for us. Truly a hidden gem. Hope it stays the way it is.

Angel and Stephen - Sanford NC
We are coming down in April 2006 for our honeymoon and by the way everyone is talking, this place is already great and we haven't even made it there yet! Never been to the Keys and looking forward to it. See ya then!

Rich & Dennis - Connecticut
We stayed at Rainbow Inn in February 2005 and have reserved the same room for the end of February 2006. Since the Inn is centrally located,in the keys,for fishing and with free use of your boats made the choice of Rainbow Inn ideal. The convenient location,clean & maintained room,pleasant & helpful personnel,a wonderful restaurant on the premises and of course cooking our caught fish on your outdoor grill made our visit memorable.

Cindee and Bob Skeen - Charleston, WV
Bob and I have stayed at Rainbow Bend more than 20 times. We go down about every 8-10 week.s We LOVE it. The staff are superior. We love to fish and Tommy and Randy know how to put you on fish! It is the most relaxing atmosphere. It is unbelievable.

Dennis and Rich - Connecticut
I would like to thank the staff at the Rainbowbend Resort for outstanding service. We came down from Connecticut in February of 2005 and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We will be returning in February of 2006. The Resort has everything you could want to fully enjoy yourself. We highly recommend anyone to try this slice of paradise.

Kate - Michigan
Many compliements on your beautiful site. I'm a huge fan of the Keys and have vacationed in Marathon many times. I would like to let you know about a great site, www.IOKW.com.

Jeff and Jill Tollefson - Bellingham, Washington
We stayed for 5 days with you at the Rainbow Resort. Really enjoyed ourselves, especially enjoying a cold corona on the private beach. Loved the "old school" atmosphere of the cottages. We have found our "home" in the Florida Keys. Can't wait to come back again soon........

Is there fishing and snorkling from your beach proper? or would we need to book a trip to do that?

Beth - Chicago

Martha Iglesias - down the road - Miami Beach
Looking to take my cousin fishing for her 60th Birthday! That is what she wanted more than anything else. She wants to able to walk out from the room and fish and let me relax for a few days without fishing. (I love to eat them but can't usually catch them like she can). Would like to drive down and visit and hopefully make our reservations for August 2004. The internet site really convinced me on your resort so I printed out the information so I could show it to her later. I think you can accomodate us both. Thanks. Hope to see you soon.

Carrie - michigan

Lorna Smith Inge - Stuart
Me, my family and friends have stayed at Rainbow Bend. I was delighted to see you had a web site as I was telling clients in my office about your place when the subject of where to rent a boat came up. They are staying at IRP and are not happy with the boats provided and I told them about your place. I hope to visit you soon. VTY, Lorna Inge


Mike & Dale - CIncinnati
FOund you in Cincinatti Newspaper travel section. Nice site wish we were there now!


Kandi Phillips - Vero Beach, FL
We stayed here for July 4th 2002 and had the most fabulouse family time. We brought our bikes with us and saw the coral reefs that are just around the corner. We also drove down to key west to ride our bikes around there as well. What we liked most about this place was that it is set back away from it all, they have such great amenities along with the best pancakes!!! We ate them every morning that we were there. We loved the beach area and the life size chess game. There is a reef close by that is accessible by the boat that comes with the room that is just gorgeous!! Thanks for giving us a great memory and we will be back there this year, 2004!!!

Greg & Lorraine K. - Cooper City, FL
Anyone who has not spent time at Rainbow Bend Resort has yet to enjoy one of the few remaining true gems of the Florida Keys. For the past 14 years, and several times during each of those years, we have had the honor of enjoying the exquisite pleasure known as Rainbow Bend. A great place to get away with the kids, yet tremendously spacious enough for a secluded quite retreat for two. Peaceful, relaxing, true hospitality at its finest. The Hideaway Cafe is a must during any stay, fantastically fabulous! We are looking forward to our next trip, and many more! Keep up the great work!

Jim Holmes - Anchorage, Alaska
I've stayed at your lodge a couple of times over the years. It's very peaceful and the boats were a great extra. Can't wait to get back to the Keys

Barbara Pope - Peachtree City Georgia

Jan Jones - London, UK
Just spent the most wonderful 5 days in the keys staying at the Rainbow Bend resort before the onslaught of the Disney parks in Orlando. Rainbow Bend was just perfect. We were totally relaxed and the staff were really friendly and helpful. As I sit here in my office in cold dark London, I can't wait for my next visit to the warm and lovely people of the keys.

Although we were there just 4 months ago, we can't wait to get back. We stayed in several places our last trip, but know that they'll only be one next time...Rainbow Bend. The room was great, the restaurant servers were always smiling, the food was great, and the dockhands always had some helpful advice...Not to mention the wonderful view from the lookout tower. Our stay was an absolute treat and we thank you!! See you soon...very soon.

I just visited a week ago (11-18-01) and had a wonderful time. The room was much bigger than I had imagined, and the Jacuzzi tub was incredible! We went hookah diving, the Glass Bottom Boat is great. Even off the pier at the hotel we could see schools of fish. I hope to go back soon!

I just returned from staying 2 weeks for my honeymoon 8/5 thru 8/17 at Rainbow Bend. Everything was perfect! The staff was so friendly & the food at the Hideaway cafe was delicious! I loved our room. We had the perfect spot! My husband enjoyed the use of the motorboats to go fishing. This place made me forget that Delta Airlines had lost my luggage for the first week! We will definitely be back for another vacation & have recommend Rainbow Bend to all of our friends! Thank you!! Becky & Chris Brodbine Nashville, TN

My husband and I got married last August 2000 and we went out of the country for the first part of our honeymoon. We we returned I had planned an extra 3 night stay at Rainbow Bend. Let me tell you it was awesome. The hotel is well kept in Keys fashion. The staff is really nice and the breakfast was great. My husband who is an avid fisherman was impressed by how well kept the boats and the marina were. I feel I made a splendid choice, I'd recommend Rainbow Bend to all my closest friends.

Richard Davidson - Va. Beach, Va.
Your website looks pretty good and is easy to navigate. I wish you had some pictures of the actual rooms. Can you send me some information on availability for May 14-17 plus or minus a day or two? We will be there at that time and your guest's comments have sold us on your resort.

Our Daughter will be 16 in April and we were looking for someplace special to celebrate her birthday. She loves the ocean and went to Big Pine Key with her Middle School a couple of years ago. In searching the accommodations lists, yours just fit what we were looking for perfectly! The canoe/boat inclusion and close island/sandbar clinched it for me and we're also very excited about trying the hooka and the glass bottom boat! I hope we aren't too late to book for April! Great web site! Thank you and hope to see you soon!

Great website!! We are coming for a week in March, it will be our first time in the Keys and we can't wait to get away from the cold!! We are really excited because there has been so many positive comments!!! Looking foward to it.

linda cornell - Holly, Michigan
Although I was frequently moved, I had a wonderful time! If I could make one suggestion on the frequent moves, I had (3) adults and (1) teenager and the last move, into the main house was uncomfortable. Although it too was spacious, Room #5 was our favorite. Their were enough comfortable beds for all of us. I noticed that the newcomers in Room #5 had smaller children, likes ages 9-11 years and they would have been able to sleep much more comfortable on a bahama bed than a grown woman. I would have been happy to provide them the very spacious Main House to remain in #5. The oceanview is beautiful and more importantly, the rooms are extremely clean! Having teenagers with me, the only time they felt bored was when the weather went bad the last few days. I commend the Rainbow Bend and their entire staff from the front office, boat dock or cleaning staff, A VERY GREAT JOB!!!

Jacqueline Richter - Pennsauken,NJ 08109
I really did not just surf in, I actually drove in last year. My husband and I stayed in OCT.2000 for our 25th wedding anniversary. It was great! The food in the Hideaway unbelievable. The place is a wonderful resort. We loved it so much that is why I am on their website. We are looking to go back for our anniversary again. Now we want to stay the whole 2 week vacation at the Rainbow Bed Resort! I think that is saying it is a great place. Also, this website is fantastic. It really is just like the place in person. Have fun! Jackie Richter, Pennsauken,NJ 08109

Looking for a place to spend 3-7 days out of our vacation days in august. The first 2 of the month. Your place sounds great. I just have to decide exactly what I want to do during my stay in Florida. Disney or Universal, fishing, kayaking and swiming are a must. Going to come up with something by may. Your place sounds great and one of the leaders. I just have to decide on what to do. We froze last week down there on marathon. Who would have thought that 1st week of new year we would be seeing records being broken...... Jim

Excellent website, interesting and informative. Long time to find the site because florida.com is full of advertising and not to many direct links to specific interests. The search engine is cluttered with crap. Looking forward to ascertaining that the information included on your site is as good as the real thing. Your website is specifically created as an information provider and then to invite visitors. Worked this time!

David Herrick -
Excellent website, unlike many others I've looked at over the last few days. Informative and simple to use! Hope to make reservations through our agents in the next few days. Will visit Rainbow Bend for several days for a well earned break from Northern European weather around the end of October. Hope your place is as good as it looks!

We were driving around last year, stopped in, a stayed awhile and had a wonderful time. Looking forward to this year.

The rainbow was recommended in a fla.keys guidebook. We went on the glass bottom boat w/the kids and family members and that's how we found the rainbow. My husband is a fisherman & free use of boats was a big plus. We will be planning a trip here april 2001. I hope we can get in!!

My wife and I fell in love with the Keys 8 years ago. We returned in April of '98 for our 10 year anniversary. Now our kids (David 8 and Susan 5) want to see what all the "hype" is about, so we're bringin' them along this year. I was surfin' to see what's available on the way to Key West. Your complimentary boats made me choose your place. We have a our own boat and cabin at Lake Of The Ozarks in Missouri so we love the whole boating atmosphere. To be able to boat in The Keys has been a long time dream of mine. I hope you have accomodations for us in June. We are REALLY looking forward to staying with you on the way down and the way back from Key West.

When we were in the keys over Thanksgiving, we happened to have dinner at the Hideaway Cafe and saw your resort and were favorably impressed. The next time we head your way, we will stay with you. Are you booked a ways in advance by repeat guests and thus hard for newby's to get in? let me know. happy new year...tom

Michele Davis - Chicago
We have stayed at rainbow bend in the past and are considering having our family reunion in the keys in 2 years. Can you send me additional info such as how many rooms do you have? How many boats are available. Is there a curfew to leave the beach in the evenings? Where is the closest place to rent jet skis etc. Thanks

Perla Lominchar - Miami, Florida
My brother and his family use your facility alot and have nothing but wonderful things to say. So, since I have some time off, I'm thinking of coming by for a few days.

Brad Hyatt - Atlanta, GA
Please confirm: We stopped at a resort just north of Marathon several years ago at night. The resturant was on the second floor and served Italian dishes. The best meal we have ever had in the keys!!! The service was great too!! I'm just trying to confirm this is the same resort.We want to come back! THANKS

Sharon Ferguson - Sarasota, Florida
Twenty years ago this August my husband and I took our first trip to the keys. I was expecting our child and we didn't have any reservations. We drove south from Hollywood, Florida, looking for a place to rest and get out the the heat. Lickily we stopped at Rainbow Bend. i believe you had very recently opened and we stayed for a delightful time. The accommendations were wonderful down to no phones in the rooms! We boated and swam and truly enjoyed the trip. The food was fantastic and because of Rainbow Bend we have enjoyed many return visits to the Keys wih our now grown beautiful daughter. hope we can sneak back in this summer for the weekend. Quite a special place.

Jimbo & Helen - Key West, Fl.
Both Helen and I want to let you all know what a great time we had at Rainbow Bend the two nights we spent with you. The rooms were perfect, and the beach view was magnificent. We had an excellent time on the boats you provided...(both the outboard and kayak). Your staff were friendly and courtious, and made our stay enjoyable to the max. We will surely recommend your fine resort to all our friends on our Island home. So once again, Thank you all!!! Jimbo & Helen Patterson http://members.tripod.com/~Cayobo (*_*)

janice todaro-williams - fort lauderdale, florida
some friends of ours stayed at your place and brought there dog and had a wonderful time, my husband and I would like to come visit, especially since pets are allowed. It is very hard to go out of town and have someone watch your animal. Our dog is well behaved and loves the beach.

Our family spent spring break at this great Resort. What a ball we had! ... and believe me...getting pre-teen and teenage kids to all have a good time with their parents (and vice-versa) and each other, is no small feat! Thanks Rainbow Bend, we'll never forget it! We'll be back!!!!!

Michel Henry - Santa Fe, NM
I have been to the keys once before--more than 30 yrs ago as a small child vacationing with my folks and siblings at Rainbow Bend. This year, my folks are celebrating their 45th anniversary, and it is now my turn to take them to the keys! We are considering coming right back to Rainbow Bend again because we all have such fond memories.

Sue - Ft. Lauderdale
A friend told me of this Resort about ten years ago. Since then, our family stays here at least four times a year. We even had our anniversary party in the Cafe. The picture doesn't do the restaurant justice. In the evening it is tansformed into an elegant but casual place with linencloths, etc. The food is superb! The Resort has something for the entire family. The kids have a ball. There is even a boat on the sand for the toddlers. I am not a fan of fishing but my husband is, so while he is out on one of the boats in the afternoon, I spend my time reading books (something I don't get to do at home with children) on the beautiful beach. The kids are safe because it seems that no matter where they are I can always see them. It's like a sand playpen. This spot has truly been one of our favorite places and is defenitely a real find. The staff is friendly and truly caters to each guest. Good to see this web site!
