Recent guest reviews

This was the second time in this hotel, we really enjoyed to stay there, because is not necessary to drive, the breakfast is ok, we can walk 10K close to the sea. I´m sure next year will be the third time in the same hotel.

We stayed 3 nights. Staff was very friendly and accomidating. Shuttle downtown was nice drop off right near everything. Room was clean and well kept.

I went for a girls getaway. I tried to buy some peseco to celebrate at the front office... no go. Their cash register didn't work and they could it do anything about it. I left it there. Then no microwave. We stayed for 4 days 3 nights. The b st part was having the hammocks and the private view. The breakfast was bread cheese and boiled eggs. It never changed. Not a variety of fruit or cereal. Could have found better. I rate my overall review 2 stars.

We hitten bikrs to go to the city there was also a free suttle

This retro hotel was definitely GREAT. The shuttle service made everything even better. The shuttle ran every hour from 10am - 10pm to the downtown area. The beach-side rooms are definitely worth the extra cost. The breakfast buffet was very good.

Loved the styling and all staff was very friendly. Attached to Stoned Crab restaurant, which is the nicest restaurant in area and pool is attached to their bar. Breakfast is lacking , but nice that it is offered. Bus runs every hour which is a great plus also.

Great place to stay, amenities were great, especially the shuttle to downtown, was super convenient (exception of one grumpy bus driver during 2 of the days). Would have been nice to have a small coffee pot in room. Booked a water view and was moved to another room (no water view) as rooms were taken up by some sort of company function/vacation, but still worked out. Would definitely recommend to future travelers and will more than likely stay again. Thank You!

It was nice. The rooms with hammocks outside went straight down to a little swim/snorkel area. Had a great view of the power lines in the water and after much deliberation decided that this must be how they make fried fish. Anyway, I didn't swim/snorkel because I didn't want to end up on my neighbors plate tonight for dinner, they seemed too nice to do that to them. Would definitely come again.....just probably won't eat the fish.

Only good thing about the hotel is it's location. Close to the beach. Complimentary breakfast is provided. Not many options are available but it's just OK. There is a complimentary shuttle also provided to the downtown. The room is actually little small and the restroom is also small. There are some lizards and other friends / spieces everywhere in the place. And therefore, we were staying only in the room and didn't go anywhere in the hotel premises. There are some parrots, turtles, etc in the premises. Overall, OK hotel (little costly) for a couple of nights.

Hotel amenities are great, we enjoyed our Continental breakfast every morning, Restaurant, the room sea view was very pretty, the staff was extremely helpful, especially enjoyed the Jet Ski tour, that experience was amazing. Room was clean and spacious. Having access to the shuttle bus was very convenient as well.

Great place is key west always stay here. Clean room great environment. Close to everything key west

the hotel was very nice and clean but the gentleman at the front desk was very rude , I checked in on Saturday the 7-16- 16 around 11am and he was very rude and acted as he was a robot. its a shame that a nice place like this has

We were very disappointed with the Ibis Bay Resort. While the room was clean and new the bathroom was very tiny. also, the parking was a major issue. Patrons of the restaurant took up all the spaces so you had to park far away. Way over priced for what you get.

I was there for 3 nights. Went to run the southernmost marathon. The location is perfect. Away enough from the buzz of Duval street but just a couple of miles from it, and all the atractions in the area. A free shuttle service is provided by the resort with corteous and friendly drivers. The rooms are clean, well thought and decorated with local motives and views. The beach and pool are inviting and sorrounded by hammocks that are all over the resort for guest to use. The staff is friendly and incredibly accomodating. Abundant ammenities from birds to turtles and reptiles, a great bar/restaurant, beach and beachfront units , jet ski rentals, paddleboard tours. It was a pleasure to stay at the resort and will be back soon.

It was a vey good stay in Key west, one big surpirise was in the check in: firstable it was at 12.00 PM, 4 hours in advance, then the attendant tol, whe n me that there is a shuttle every hour to and from downtown, the pool is excellent and there is a rest area at the beach with chairs and hammock, we were very happy at Ubis bay.

We stayed in room 114 The second night I became itchy even though I was never in brush of any kind When leaving for the airport I noticed over 20 bites on my feet legs arms torso and buttocks Confirmed BED BUGS

I was looking for the Key West experience at an affordable price. Ibis was great from the welcoming parrot to the front desk ladies to the concierge. All very helpful land friendly full of information. The resort was very clean and there was always people picking up and offering their assistance. The room was what you see on the website nice and clean and just what you need. The nicest thing I found was that they have shuttle service into Old Key West so you don't have to drive your car and pay for expensive parking. Overall it was great and I will sure book them again and again.

Hotel was located about minutes outside Key west, it is hard to locate from the street and major construction taking place there.

Unique funky mid-century resort! It has everything you need, except the traffic noise from Roosevelt Ave. Booked a 2 room suite for family of 3 + Grandmother and it was a good fit. My only recommendation is to PLEASE FEED the tortoises per the sign at 11:00 AM. Fun to watch (& listen to !) them devouring their rations but for 2 days they were not fed and were rattling their empty food trays. I visited the kitchen and asked "Who's responsible for tortoise chow?" (aka kitchen scraps) The resort-wide piped in music is apropos to era and location! Really enjoyed that, especially since our room did not have the iPod docking station specified in the room accommodations. Bring hand held fish nets for kids off the dock - we saw anemone, sea stars, sea jellies and a parrot fish! On our second day Dock-to-Dish, a local CSA for seafood, set up shop near the lobby and had ocean-fresh fish & Key West pink shrimp! The kitchen prepared the shrimp in tacos and were delicious. Bring a sun hat and wear the tropical pareo provided in the room and live your Key West itinerary!

Don't waste your money. Small rooms. Not clean. Rude staff.

too much time to think

Had a great view of the power lines in the water and after much deliberation decided that this must be how they make fried fish. Anyway, I didn't swim/snorkel because I didn't want to end up on my neighbors plate tonight for dinner, they seemed too nice to do that to them.
