Traveled to Key Largo for a first time visit to the Keys area. We had booked our stay at the Rock Reef Resort based on various reviews on Trip Advisor. We stayed there for three days and had a wonderful, relaxing time at the Rock Reef Resort. Friends had recommended that we stay in Key West to really experience the... More

This resort is a mix of things. Part of it is very "tired" looking and feeling, and would appear to appeal to guys that are purely on a fishing trip. Other parts are more updated and comfortable. So picking the right room for your planned trip is important. Some of the lessor rooms had a lot of road noise at... More

The small privately owned resorts of the Keys have evolved over time – as business expanded new buildings were built and room inventory was increased. Thus some buildings are more modern than others. To add to our challenges, we have been under a building moratorium since 1992. This means that we cannot increase the footprint of our buildings. There is... More

This was our third visit to Key Largo and this was definitely the best place that we have stayed. My wife normally books the accommodation, but I booked this one. On our way from The Everglades, my wife jokingly said 'no pressure' on whether the accommodation is good. When we pulled into the drive, checked in and then saw our... More

I really like this place. I have stayed here before and would stay again. Clean rooms with plenty of space. (we rented three rooms) Great water access with a place to relax and watch the waves and boats. I love the place but the staff was less than friendly. On our arrival we were told that we were "out of... More

Nothing fantastic but it worked. We didn't use it but looked like a nice pool area. We stayed in #3, and the toilet ran intermittently about every minute which was somewhat bothersome but not a big deal. However the early morning construction beginning promptly at 8:00 AM was a bit bothersome. Bathroom was extremely small but otherwise, okay place to... More

This is an idyllic spot for relaxing - with lots of spots to find your own hammock or sun bed. The pool is beautifully clean .the staff could not be more helpful and there is a gas station with convenience store across the road and restaurants close by. I would have given a 5 star except our room was really... More

Pros: they have a beach with free use of kayaks, hammocks, and are away from the road. Cons: when I entered the room I thought I was in the 1950's. It was small and the bathroom was even smaller. There was no breakfast. I know everything is expensive in Key Largo, but anywhere else this is a $90 room at... More

Thanks for staying at Rock Reef Resort and taking time to write a review. I read your review of other hotels you stayed at and there seems to be a common theme of unhappiness. You state that we are all overpriced. The room is only a portion of the price of a stay. Along with clean, comfortable accommodations, your room... More

We are a private flight crew and have been coming here whenever we are in the area for the past 11 years. You cannot ask for a more relaxing place, and the price point is one of the best values in the Keys we have found. I always feel like I stepped back in time to the earlier days of... More

We had a suite with kitchen and living room and it is very nice. The grounds are beautilful. You can cook in and make a BBQ. Everything you need is there. Nice beach and pool. Nice hammocks to chill and nice garden.

It was so lovely to have our own cottage on the beach...it was quiet and a haven after our busy days. Some days...we just stayed there because it was so restful and beautiful. We were treated so well and, thought the cottage was old, the space was clean and fresh, sheets were new, everything felt wonderful.
