We had an amazing experience with these guys, (RW & Bobby) any 5 star hotel could learn from their customer service. The rooms are around the pool in a quiet enclosed garden area, the accommodation varies in size, we had a Queen room that was perfect for us but we saw some of the other rooms offered even better space...

The relaxed attitude of hosts and guests alike makes you feel right at home. Raid the kitchen at 3 am, relax by the pool any time day or night, revel in a truly comfortable bed, with soft CLEAN sheets and bedding with substance. Great water pressure, and HOT water! If you like quiet socialization with your neighbors around the pool,... More

It's well worth discovering this hidden gem on your next stay in Fort Lauderdale. Great room rates, spend the extra and upgrade to a poolside room. They are stunningly decorated and the pool and hot tub are delightful. The hosts are really friendly, breakfast is included in the price and the coffee is among the best I've tasted. Free WiFi...

We stayed at the Coral Reef beginning, on New Years Day, for three nights. After many years with another gay venue we were so pleasantly surprised to find this little gem. It is small but ideal for a relaxing stay in Ft. Lauderdale. We stayed in Room 102 that was recently renovated and a perfect size and great value. Bobby... More

I stayed at the Coral Reef in December 2013 and had a very nice visit. I hadn't been back since the new owner Wayne took over with his new team. The property is in great shape and they have done some fantastic renovations to the rooms. I was very impressed with the new furniture in the rooms as well as... More

My partner and I stayed here for 4 days and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The genuine quality of hospitality was amazing as well as memories made. I recommend this resort to anyone visiting Ft. Lauderdale over a hotel anyday

This was a random choice made to spend a few days before setting sail on a cruise. Had no idea we would fall in LOVE with it. From start to finish, it was an amazing place. Bobby is the sexy little Tasmanian Devil that runs around taking care of every little detail, but he finds the time to stop and... More

The Reef has large, comfortable rooms with all the modern amenities. They surround a pool in a garden setting. There's a jacuzzi too. The place is very quiet--it's in a residential neighborhood. And at night--with silver and blue soft lighting--it is amazing. The Reef is convenient to wonderful restaurants of all prices as well as the Galleria. And both the... More
