Rainbow Bend Resort
Florida Keys (Marathon)

Capture the spirit of the old Florida Keys. Unwind and enjoy a barefoot walk along a sandbar island, or sun yourself on the resort's private beach as you take in the view of beautiful subtropical gardens and breathtaking ocean. Your stay includes a full American breakfast each day, plus you receive a half day use of one of the resort's Boston Whaler motor boats, sailboats, canoes, kayaks and paddle boats are also complimentary.

Fish to your heart's content in unspoiled ocean waters where the variety of fish is as plentiful as the fish themselves. Swim in our freshwater swimming pool overlooking the ocean, and at the end of the day, rest your muscles and your mind in our hot therapy spa. There is a barbeque area on the beach and an oceanfront gourmet restaurant.

Unspoiled... Uncrowded... Unbelievable... at Rainbow Bend Resort there's something for everyone.


Our comfortable one and two bedroom oceanfront suites and one bedroom patio efficiencies come complete with fully equipped kitchens. All rooms are uniquely different. And, your full complimentary American breakfast is served every morning in the comfort of the Hideaway Café.


Award winning cuisine coupled with a breathtaking view is served up every day in the casual atmosphere of the Hideaway Café. The only thing we overlook is the ocean!



The unspoiled waters of Grassy Key are among the best in the country for flats fishing. You’ll find a bounty of highly prized gamefish including bonefish, tarpon, permit and barracuda – an infinite variety of tasty reef dwellers including snapper, grouper and mackerel – and plenty of Gulf Stream denizens like marlin, sailfish, dolphin, wahoo, tuna and shark. When the sun goes down, there’s night fishing off our lighted dock. If you need some fishing equipment, check out our fully stocked bait and tackle shop.

Snorkeling & Diving

The waters are excellent around Marker 45 and at Coffin’s Patch; "crystal clear" with beautiful patches of living coral that house a hundred and one varieties of tropical fish and other underwater life. We can supply the rental masks, fins and snorkels. If you need air or other diver’s supplies, they are available locally. Or book a dive, hookah dive or snorkel trip aboard the Glass Bottom Boat, located on the premises.


Travel by outboard to one of the area’s choice swimming spots, about a mile southwest on the sandbars (you can see it from our dock) – a great place for children to learn to swim and snorkel. Or just relax and enjoy a few laps in our fresh water swimming pool, followed by a soothing dip in the hot therapy spa.


The Atlantic Ocean is your playground, and it’s right at your doorstep at Rainbow Bend. As our guest, you’re entitled to complimentary use of our Boston Whaler motorboats, sailboats, kayak eco tours, pedalboats, paddleboats, spyaks or canoes for up to four hours for each day of your stay. You’re charged only for the fuel used. Enjoy free use of motorboats with each nights stay!


One Bite and You’ll Seek Out Hideaway Café

Review in The L'Atitudes, Saturday, February 8, 2002

Steaks cooked to perfection every time.

If you are looking for fine dining in the Middle Keys in the true sense of the phrase, look no further than the Hideaway Café.

Fine dining means terrific food served beautifully in a formal yet warm setting, and attentive service, all at a leisurely but reasonable pace. Of course all of this comes at a price, a premium price.

Located in the Rainbow Bend Resort, the restaurant overlooks the ocean. Though entirely enclosed, the windowed porch provides diners with a nice view.
