This is an excellent resort but it seems a little excessive to pay 19% gratuity on every item you buy. When you buy a bottle of water at the coffee shop they add 19% gratuity on it. It is acceptable to pay 19% in the restaurants but not on a cup of coffee.

Great hotel outside Miami. Service was excellent. Rooms are clean. Food was great. I will come back. Marina is beautiful. Restaurant offers many healthy choices. Oatmeals , granola, egg white frittata, fruit plates. Eggs Benedict a must.

We have been looking forward to visiting the ocean reef for years. The place is amazing and was built 40 years ago. The dolphins hotel was older but charming and well maintained The diners at the seafood and Italian were amazing. The pool is cool and a party. The golf course was beautiful and in great shape. And they ask... More

We visited Ocean Reef for the first time this past March. We fell in love with the place. We rented a golf course and explored. From casual dining to more elegant plus a pool table for late night. We enjoyed lunch by the pool. We met nice people that invited us to their yacht for a sunset cocktail. The amount... More

It's all of the above & more. But they wouldn't allow late check-out on a Sunday in the off-season & offered no alternative other than the use of the spa shower to freshen up & dress for a late-day formal dinner. I am accustomed to better accommodation from luxury (and very pricey) establishments! If you think you will need late... More

What an amazing experience from start to finish. We rented a condo, we have a decent sized travel group (2 kids, grandparents and a caregiver). We rented a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom and it was a great size. We rented a golf cart to get us around - it made not having a car even a thought for us. Every... More

Beautiful room- even had a little exercise area! Great golf! Lots to do. Planned activities everyday. Get a golf cart to get to all the areas, which includes pools, bars,golf, shops and restaurants. Also very nice estates throughout the community. But be prepared to pay out the big bucks when staying in this affluent resort!

I was at at the Ocean Reef Club this past weekend for work (tough gig, right?) and stayed at the resort. What a place! A very laid-back atmosphere that reminded me of two other resorts that I have had the pleasure of visiting. The family atmosphere reminded me of the Ponte Vedra Inn, while the incredible staff reminded me of... More

A fantastic club with all the activities one could want - fishing, boating, tennis, golf, relaxing by the pool, etc. A nice selection of onsite restaurants and bars provide plenty of options. Note, this is not a place for a budget vacation - the charges add up!
