We came down with a about 300 college students to do a summer project. The staff was very friendly and patient with our young group. We enjoyed everything and would definitely recommend. Also John Sowder (a man on staff at the reef) was always very helpful and a joy to be around! He always made it a priority to do... More

If you plan to be out and about exploring PCB majority of your day (18/24 hours), then this is the place for you. The room was NOT worth the money. Bed were very hard and pillows were super flat. Bathtub/room were not up to standards, and the oven had rust all over it. The only "new" amenities in the room... More

The hotel was ok .. We had a bottom floor so we had no view, but that was alright. The awful part was the staff. We couldn't check in @ check in time because none of the rooms were ready. My husband, son and I sat in our car waiting (they kept extending the time) and we saw the cleaning... More

Danny installed a brand spankin new air conditioner for us! He did it in 10 minutes too! He was great! He helped us to understand what was wrong with it and immediately knew that we needed a new one. He put a new one in and cold air started blowing immediately
