I did not have any issues with the place. I think it depends on time of year you are here. Our room was on the first floor, everything was new or near new. Right on the beach, right on the main drag. we were mid resort, not close to beach but not near roadway. This resort is behind a building... More

The location, the size of the units, beds, grounds, hot tubs, pool and and the working staff are very good. There is free laundry and great internet access. They had a very convenient towel exchange and easy access to a wonderful, walkable beach. There were many great restraunts in walking distance. The bad was trying to relax in the hot... More

The beach and pools are great, but the room is a little tired, and a little small. Since it was only my wife and myself, the unit was fine, but it would be very tight for 3 - 4 people. I traded a 2 BR unit thinking I was trading for oceanfront, but the majority of the units are ocean... More

Just finishing a week's stay at the CRR and have had a fantastic week at the beach and enjoying the great pools. The place was super quiet and within walking distance of excellent restaurants. The parking lot got flooded from some of heavy rain earlier in the week but moving to another lot solved that problem. The staff are excellent... More

I read a lot of negative reviews so I was very hesitant about booking at Coral Reef. The good: Nice beach area and very nice pool. Bar/restaurant next door, rooms are clean but a tad dated (not a big deal at all). The not so good: Nothing to do within walking distance as everything involves needing a car and paying... More

This resort could be the most fantastic place ever. But the management keeps it third rate. They are replacing the old and run down hotel part eventually, so the front looks like H E double hockey sticks but the back is fantastic. Beautiful white beach, infinity pool, and another pool with a lift in it, washers and dryers within the... More

Giving this "resort" a 1 star is being gracious. We simply checked in to this place and checked out within 20 minutes. I told my husband we were either going home or finding another place to stay. We were lucky that there was a nice resort next door with availability. Upon arriving, the signage is almost non-existent, there is a... More
