Very old, too expensive for what it is. I generally second the "Outrageous cost for backpacker standards‎" review.

Our family booked into this establishment, we called it Cell Block 12, for a family wedding in February. We were greeted by the largest cockroach I have ever seen on arrival in the stairwell. We concur with the ratings of previous guests. The carpet was grotty and felt damp (maybe the humidity) bed linen had holes (fortunately we took our... More

We stayed at the Reef Resort apartments with our 3 children (3, 5 and 6) for 10 nights in summer. The location was excellent with the nearby park and playground, beach and pool. We used the tennis court and games room as well. The laundry was also fine. We weren't put off by some of the other reviews, as the... More

We stayed at the Reef Resort Apartments at Mona Vale in January 09 with our friends, some who have young kids. We were initially put off by the other reviews we read on Trip Advisor but our concerns were cast aside once we arrived. I made a call to the Reef Resort Apartments where the lady was very informative &... More

We were booked to stay at this motel (I wouldn't call it a resort) for a few nights. As we came with a group, and was the last to arrive, we'd heard from the others how terrible the place was. The second we walked into our apartment, I felt like I was staying with cockroaches (figure of speech). The carpets... More

I stayed there off season which might in part explain why it was so third rate. I say that because it might explain the lack of staff, cleaning and the bed linen being dirty. The staff when they are there are more apathetic than rude. Position wise the Reef can't be faulted as it is quiet, very near the beach... More

I stayed at the Reef Resort for one week in Feb05 and found it to be both affordable and pleasant. The accommodation is basic but spacious and the location is ideal for families as it is directly across the road from the Mona Vale Beach and surf club. I would recommend it as an ideal place to stay if your... More

We stayed in this accomodation in March/April 2005. This was all pre-paid before we arrived. On arrival the exterior seemed quite nice, there was a young girl who gave us a key and told us she would only be around for 1 hour more then not be available for 4 days as it was a bank holiday. On entering the... More
