My honey and I stayed there for a couple of days early March 2014. We didn't know what to expect after reading all the online mixed reviews. Well we found it to be a perfect place to relax for a couple of days while visiting Key West for the first time. The shuttle was on time and the drivers were...

We do get mixed reviews. Why? We don't appeal to everyone. We are different and that polarizes people. It used to bother me, but I realize now that our individuality is our greatest asset. Clearly, we are your kind of place and treat's what counts. Thanks for staying with us and supporting us with this review. It means a lot.

Sounds like you picked the right place for you. I always recommend our beachfront rooms too. As you say, Ibis Bay is beautiful and tranquil morning noon and night. Read a book, snooze in a hammock or go for a paddle in a kayak or on a paddle board. Did you try the kayak trip at night? I hope do....

My husband and I stayed at the Ibis the first week of March 2014. We had a hard time with our flight in getting there and were frazzled when we checked in.

Great memories are what we are here for. Thank you for choosing Ibis Bay. I do have great staff. They love what they do and that shows. Thank you for recording your thoughts here. It makes us proud and it helps travelers who are trying to decide which place will suit them.

The value room was not as small as I expected, and the whole place is very cute and very clean. Nice beach area, nice pool. Good value for Key West, which is very expensive. However, I had called a few weeks ahead to request a room on the quiet side (back side, no view, that's fine), and I was told...

We chose Ibis Bay Beach Resort because it was a cheaper alternative to the Duval Street area. We were very pleased with the clean, cleverly adorned room and the hustling staff. The hourly shuttle to Duval Street (about 15 minutes) worked out very well and it was nice to come back to the calm Ibis Bay. We spent one whole...

You raise a good point. Duval Street is a nice place to visit but I would never recommend anyone stay there. You need to be able to retreat from the nuttiness and noise that who area makes. As this reviewer says, sitting calmly on a lounger chair watching the water is a must on a vacation, once you are over...

This is a beautiful resort. Unfortunately there is major construction going on right in front of it. (I hear there usually is construction in Key West all the time.) However, once we got back to our room, which is right on the beach, we forgot all about the noise and traffic. The place is immaculate. It has a great restaurant,...

You sound like a very happy guest. That's what we strive for. Virtually every guest who stays in a beachfront room always recommends it. Its hard to beat a blue horizon, a hammock between palm trees and your own beach garden outside your door. Thank you for choosing Ibis Bay and helping us spread the word.

We enjoyed every minute we spent at IBIS Bay Beach Resort. From the irresistible hammocks outside our door on the "beach" to the giant turtles on the property it was fantastic. We laid down in the hammocks on the day we got there and didn't get out until we were starving for dinner. Yes, there was construction/remodeling on the property...

Our greatest compliments is seeing our guests come back. So I am happy to hear you will be visiting us again. You obviously loved your hammocks.

Our website shows each room's floor plan with dimensions. So prospective guests know exactly what they should expect upon arrival. Our inexpensive (for Key West) Value Rooms are great for our guests who just are looking to find the least expensive, but clean and well-decorated place they can lay their heads. A small price gets you a good, but smaller...

Ibis Bay Resort provided a lovely stay in Key West. It is one of the more economical choices with simple and clean rooms. I recommend a room with a view of the bay!

It is so peaceful on the bay beach. Because we have the only ramp access to our bay there is very little boat traffic. That's why there is an abundance of undisturbed marine life right in front of the hotel. I was on that back beach when a stingray leaped out of the water not more than 10ft in front...

Now that The Stoned Crab offers room service to our guests we are hoping lots of people will get to enjoy a beautiful and possibly romantic meal in their private beach garden and hammock gardens.

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
