Unfortunately, this resort is under construction and it's hard to give it a fair review right now. Our two-bedroom condo was roomy and well-equipped. It appears to be renovated in the bedrooms, but some new furniture is needed in the living room because it is seriously outdated and chairs have dirty armrests. The kitchen was good with ok appliances, but... More

We traded through II for this unit and were quite excited to stay on the beach. The location was great. Unfortunately, that's where the positive experience ends. When driving up, the resort looks like a condemned resort in the midst of being torn down. The entrance is a small trail that runs by a dumpster. Poor first impression! Oh, the... More

Coral Reef is an older probably original resort on St Petes Beach. As resorts go it is very small compared to its neighbors on both sides. At one point in time it also had a hotel attached to one of the buildings. Although it is pretty clean just by looking around you can tell there is a maintenance problem with... More

This was an RCI exchange. Stayed in a one bedroom unit which was very nice and comfortable. There was a full kitchen and living room. The resort is right on the beach and also has a couple of nice pools. Resturants were within easy walking distance. I would definitely stay here again.

We traded into this timeshare for this trip sometime last year. We were pleasantly surprised when we got there. The room was spotless, and updated. We had a gulf front room and had the pleasure of a beautiful sunset nightly. This resort is steps from great food, entertainment, and the gulf. The only thing I can complain about is they... More

The place was in need of updating but was clean and had everything we needed. There was construction going on in the parking lot and hard to find a space. But it was quiet and the people were very friendly. Lots of good restaurants within walking distance.

Our review is based on our recent five week stay as interval week owners. For Facebook users, a group has been created - CORAL REEF OWNERS. We received notification that ongoing construction was taking place at the Coral Reef and the adjacent grounds but it was greatly understated - “there will be intermittent noise/dust during this time” For the first...
