If you are not locked in, wait 2 years. Place is a mess on the south side, Gulf Front is bearable ... BUT will be Great again when all this is done. The main pool is closed but smaller one open. It will be better when all is done

The living room chair and pull-out couch are older but apparently will be updated as part of the complete renovation. Yes, the large winding pool is under construction (until... More

Visited w a friend who is timeshare owner. Very nice, updated rooms with good, comfortable furnishings. Great location right on Gulf. The lagoon style pool with waterfalls was fabulous and not overly crowded. Loved it

We arrived and checked in. Initial impression was not too good. The unit was furnished with very old furniture and equipment and it had a rather unpleasant odor some kind of cleaner/disinfectant. We unloaded our luggage and went right down to the beach to watch the sunset. When we got back to the room there was a roach on the... More

I was hesitant given the reviews for this resort. We were a family of 12 and required multiple units. The units were small but clean. They were equipped with all of the basics. The larger pool was under construction, the other pool and hot tub were open and adequate for our needs. The resort is oceanfront and we spent most... More

Check in process: The Resort grounds and parking lot are a mess due to the construction, we had... More

Front desk people were very nice and there is free wifi. The resort.....yuck. Our room had the amazing view looking out to the beach but it was awful inside the room. Entire... More

We came to Coral Reef during the Christmas week through our time share with RCI. Came with trepidation because we were advised after confirming reservations of the construction going on with the renovation of their largest pool. We were pleasantly surprised at the lack of construction noise and the remaining pool and hot tub provided so much comfort, hospitality, and... More

The resort is in a great location and on a beautiful section of St. Pete Beach. There are many restaurants in the area. The resort notified us that the large pool was under construction but another pool was available. The available pool was very nice and a hot tub was available. The front desk staff was very friendly and check... More

Nice rooms, right on the beach. I cant wait to go again! The location was great.. Lots of things to do within walking distance. We had a room on the top floor... What an amazing view to watch the sun set every night.
