In Hemingway's hometown

The white-sand beach of Ibis Bay Beach Resort is a 5-minute drive from downtown Key West. Both the Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum and Southernmost Point are 17 minutes away by bike, and Sunset Pier on Duval Street is a 10-minute cab ride. Key West International Airport is 2.8 miles (4.5 km) away.

Jet-skis and free WiFi

Guests can enjoy a poolside drink while swaying in a hammock. More energetic options include renting a bike, a jet-ski, a stand-up paddleboard, or a clear-bottom kayak. There’s free WiFi in public areas, and locally caught shrimp and stone crabs to be relished at The Stoned Crab next to the water.

Vintage vibe, modern TVs

Built in the 1950s, the resort oozes period charm, without stinting on mod cons. Guestrooms feature Cuban artwork, flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and hammocks. The hotel lends guests colorful sarongs to relax in, and some rooms have a private beach deck or garden.
