My wife and I chose Ibis Bay Beach Resort from online reviews and photos, and could not have been more pleased with the choice. The room was a bit small, but when you're in Key West, it's only there for sleeping. Our room had it's own back porch with furniture as well as a hammock and a fantastic view of...

We stayed at room 205 and 206 near the water. To Wake up and see the Key West sunrise is just an amazing experience. You can open the door and walk straight out to the little private Beach With Chairs and tables.. We travelled With kids, so this back side of the hotel is Perfect. It is quiet and very...

The early morning and late afternoon are my favorite times at Ibis Bay. I love the coolness of the air and the warm, low light. Your photos are great. Thanks for coming. See you next time!

Room was small but very clean. The place was quiet. Didn't go the beach...it had a bad odor. pool was awesome. Not a swimmer. Have a pool at home....longest I've stayed in the pool. The pictures on the site looked better. Overall had a great, relaxing time and will definitely come back again. Say hi to Stephanie at Stoned Crab....

thanks for your review. I will pass on your "thank you" to Stephanie. At low tide, and at this time of year, there can be seaweed that is stinky until the tide comes in. It's the same problem all over the island. Thank goodness, it just for a while. I grew up on a bay and I remember it from...

This is a well-known scam in the hotel business. Threaten to write a bad review and get your room for free! Chain hotels go along with it because their corporate head office fines them $750 for bad reviews. We are family owned. We don't cooperate with scammers, so occasionally we get one of these reviews. Read what our honest guests...

Would go for breakfast all the time and enjoy the pool. Now they want to charge $30 for a local to use their pool. I would spend money to eat at the restaurant and have drinks. I am not at all impressed with the way they now treat the locals and the Military. Certainly not MILITARY FRIENDLY

As you know, Ibis Bay's pool was always open to locals and especially our neighbors from the Navy base. Unfortunately many locals abused the resort pool and made it uncomfortable for us and our paying guests. We tried to deal with the behavior problems individually but the abuse of our pool rules became overwhelming. Several times very young children we...

You make a good point about the pool closing time. I will find out why it was closed before 10pm. I will make sure that is corrected. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.

Stayed for two nights and the room we paid for was tiny. I mean tiny! This is not hyperbole. An average smallish bedroom is larger than the room we stayed in, you have to hop over your luggage bc there is not adequate space. The beach they speak of does have nice sand but I wouldn't swim in the murky...

You stayed in our very affordable Value Rooms. They are a bargain price compared to the rest of Key West. They are best suited for younger guests and singles who have a hard time finding any affordable accomodations here. We offer guests many larger rooms. They all offer private hammock gardens or are on the beach. They cost a little...

Ibis Bay is located right off a busy street, when we 1st pulled into the hotel I was a little skeptical about it due to the location off a noisy road. Once I walked into the lobby I had a smile on my face, it was fun, happy, welcoming, vibrant colors, not your traditional front lobby. I had requested a...

There are a lot of fans of Room 201. Its such a great spot. Another equally favorite spot is Room114. It overlooks one of our other floating docks on Ibis Bay. Ocassionally sit on the dock after dark with the lights on. It is postcard worthy. Thank you for choosing Ibis Bay.

We are located on the waterfront on three sides of the property. Our rooms have sliding glass doors that lead onto patios, hammock gardens or directly onto the beach. If the doors are left open a water bug can come in. It doesn't happen a lot but it does happen. I know its scary but they are not dirty like...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ibis Bay is exactly what you dream of when you imagine Key West. It's a friendly, quirky resort with design and colors inspired by 1950s Havana. The landscaped white sand beach leads right up to the beachfront guest rooms, and guests can jump right into the beautiful bay for swimming, snorkeling and take jet skis, kayaks or paddle boards right from our dock! The staff are all Key West locals who love the island and want our guests to enjoy their stay. We have exclusive attractions like our poolside Dive-In Movies every Wednesday night on a 20ft screen by the pool, plus Nightboarding nightime LED-lit paddleboarding and kayaking! Wildlife abounds on our grounds including huge tortoises, lots of large colorful parrots, local iguanas (don't touch!) and our namesake, the very pretty ibis birds. In the mood for some fun? Ask our Fun Desk concierge about our jet ski, scooter and electric car rentals on site plus paddle board, kayaks and kiteboard rentals on the beach. They can also recommend off-site activities, restaurants, tours and local attractions. We have 80 hammocks for lazing about, and an amazing restaurant called The Stoned Crab that has two of its very own fishing boats delivering fresh crab, shrimp, lobster and fish every day! What are you waiting for? ... more   less
