I have to say The Reef is a clean room and beautiful views. But, I can not give them a higher rating because of what happened to my family on our vacation. We was lead to believe that their other hotel Palm Grove was really nice and clean and blah blah blah. It was disgusting! So we ended up at... More

First and foremost I would like to apologize for your negative experience at Palm Grove if you feel that you were misled. The property is an older property therefore it is not the same quality as our other properties. We are happy we were able to accommodate you and your family at our Reef property and hope to see you... More

This is a great place to stay. It's clean, right on the beach, has it's own beach access that someone from the hotel is either working at all times or you have to use your room key to access. It's right next door to Sharky's so your kids under 13yrs old can eat there free off the kids menu. They... More

The room with kitchenette was clean and everything was functional. The whole complex including the rooms could certainly use some upgrading and renovation, but for the price and beautiful beach views, it's not bad at all. All rooms have a beach view balcony. As far as service, housekeeping did not fully clean and stock rooms each day, but any requests... More

I usually don't complain but these people earned every word. This hotel was overpriced and nasty. The floors were nasty and the beds only had sheets. The balcony upon arrival was ful of cigarette butts and beer cans, meaning no one cleaned prior to our arrival. They did not provide washcloths and boldly stated "we don't have none" when we... More

First off the website is very misleading. My new wife and I stayed here for six days for our honeymoon, we would have left after day one if they let us cancel the rest of our stay and refund our money. But since they wouldn't we had to continue to stay in this nightmare of a hotel. We found our... More

We paid $360 to stay at a complete DUMP. The website is very misleading. No breakfast (when it's advertised online) Shower fills up to the tub rim while showering & never drained after 2 nights (disgusting!) Thin sheets only on beds, no comforters. Elevator did not work properly. Side walks and stair rails were absolutely disgusting. Pool was aweful! It... More

Stayed 4 days, felt like 8. Cons- housekeeping did nothing but make the beds. No towels, no taking the trash, did not vacuum the carpet, did not clean sinks, counters, etc. Had to ask for anything to be done. Could not get the front desk to answer the phone on multiple occasions. Killed several cockroaches. The doors were hard to... More

We have stayed at this hotel before and had a pleasant experience. This time... not so much. We had two rooms. Our friends stayed on one of the rooms and there toilet ran all night, both nights they were there! Windows had sharp metal edges. The shower did not work the first night! Our A/C unit came out of the... More

After reading other reviews, I immediately crossed this hotel off the list. However, because of last minute booking restrictions, I ended up taking the chance and staying here. I'm glad I did- the building itself is a little outdated and could use some minor repairs, but it's not run-down or dirty. The rooms are clean, the elevator worked, there are... More
