This is a great resort if you are looking for a casual, laid back vacation directly on the beach. With that said, the reviews about the sea grass are very true. Basically they do not have the manpower or equipment needed to keep up with the problem. They would work on it every morning but with only 3 men and... More

The Reef overall as a hotel is fine. The rooms are large and clean, with good facilities in each room including a small kitchenette. One of the hotel features is that each room overlooks the ocean, so the hotel is quite spread out along the beach. There are two pool areas - they are ok, not amazing and not somewhere... More

We stayed here for a week and the resort was perfect. We had a one bedroom beachfront condo and it worked perfectly for us. There is a grocery store across the street which is perfect for breakfast supplies. The ocean is a bit rocky but with water shoes it is great. The snorkelling off the beach is very good and... More

I stayed for 1 week in October 2014. The check in process was fairly fast. They gave out rum punch at check in. So they were off to a good start with me. I had a deluxe studio in the reef building (2nd flr). The room was adequate with a great view of the ocean and prier. There was a... More

I had the luxury of spending Six great days at the Reef with my wife in May, and we had a fantastic time. Room was great, quiet as I expected. We rented a car when landing and we're grateful because we went all over the island. The Reef concierge hooked us up for a memorable stingray city visit also. Subsequently,... More

We went early September 2014. It was a transition period for the hotel, as they were becoming a Wyndham affiliate and doing renovations. We booked while it was still the Reef Resort. It's about a 40 minute ride from the airport to the hotel which is located on the quiet east side of the island. Car rentals are across the... More

Beautiful view of ocean from every room. Very clean and quite at the east end of the island. Renat a car as it is a long way from anything. Have really enjoyed the pools and hot tub. Be prepared everything is really expensive.

I just returned from a long holiday weekend at the Reef resort. I felt compelled to write a review due to all of the glowing reviews for this resort on Tripadvisor. The first thing that you should know is that the resort beach is covered with seagrass (Caymans version of seaweed.) It makes the beach unswimable. In fact the whole... More

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. As noted your vacation unfortunately coincided with a period where the entire island received a deluge of sea weed quite unlike anything we have ever seen before. Our beach is cleaned in full every day however due to the sheer volume sometimes we were unable to clear it all. We are... More

We stayed at the Reef Resort for a week and rented car also - loved the resort - rooms larger than expected, all rooms have ocean view and sit right on top of the beach/pools/ocean. Very clean, courteous stay. Walked or drove by other resorts on the east end and this is by far the best. They racked and cleaned... More

I was a guest during CaymanBlueEyes recent stay (Oct 4-10) at The Reef, and corroborate both the events/circumstances and her expressed opinions and resulting umbrage. I would further add, and knowing the cost of electricity on Cayman, that $325 for 6 nights electricity usage of the unit is unconscionable and (by my opinion) unethical; this amount is one-half of our...
