The Reef is a great spot to just get away and chill. It is at the Eastern end of the island and quite a way (40 mins is quite a way in Cayman) from George Town and Seven Mile beach. West End, Turtle Farm etc and another 15 - 20 mins further). About to become part of the Wyndham chain... More

We stayed for a week in March 2014. Although this is high season--lots of US families on Spring Break--The Reef didn't seem crowded, presumably because many of the privately owned apartments were empty. We took a one bedroom suite for the two of us because no studios were available. It cost more, but the extra space made it worthwhile and... More

We're just back from our 4th visit to The Reef, it was superb. They've maintained the property well and the staff couldn't have tried harder, we had a great time. It's close to all our favourite East End restaurants - Over the Edge, Kaibo, the Lighthouse, Tukka, Kurt's. The dive trips were fantastic this year, all around the East End... More

Fault-free holiday at Reef. Wonderful location..so peaceful and uncrowded. All staff chatty and helpful (and that included the women who spruced up the room daily) Many thanks to all,, Great beachfront location..to wake up to the waves crashing was music to our ears!

My husband, teen daughter, and I stayed at the Reef the last week of March 2014. We stayed in a one-bedroom suite, that had plenty of room for the 3 of us (2 pull-out, twin Murphy beds in living room were great for kids and teens). The unit was very clean, quiet, and had a beautiful oceanfront view. The pools... More

We had a great time at the Reef Resort. The room (a 2-bedroom suite) was spacious, clean and well-equipped. You can't beat the view. The beach was nice although they do have a truck cleaning up seaweed every morning. There are activities every day at the hotel (most for a price), tennis, a fitness center, a spa (which we didn't...
