Would just like to say, I was at the Reef Club on 2-15-03 thru 2-23-03. Had a great time. Met up with Canadians who liked to party. Teased them a lot about saying "A" If they read this, I hope they respond. The Reef Club is a very clean place, with a beautiful beach!

The staff were very friendly and always eager to help if you needed it, especially the entertainment staff, Fernando, Omar, and Carlos,... More

We just returned from 2 weeks spent at the Club Reef in Playacar...the best all inclusive holidays we ever had! Quiet hotel, superclean (someone is always cleaning something there!), excellent food: eating at the same buffet for 2 weeks, it better offer enough variety! The beach is lovely. And we could take very long walks along the beach. Would recommend... More

The reef club was a great place to stay. we had gone to the one in Cozumel beforehand and thought it was the best place on earth. We got to go there for a day while staying at the other one and found out that the playacar one is 10 times better. We wanted to go back to playacar after... More
