We have been vacationing in the St. Petersburg area for several years and this is the worst place we have ever stayed! Although there are a couple of units directly on the beach, the view from our unit was the back of another hotel. The rooms are cramped - we had to straddle the toilet to shut the bathroom door....

We enjoyed the room it was a nice size for two adults and a twelve year old child. We enjoyed siiting out on balcony and being able to watch our son down at the pool. Our son loved the pool area and we enjoyed it also. The maid we had was very friendly the only thing I didn't like was... More

We spent a week here at Coral Reef Resort and had a great time. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The Staff was very willing to assist us and all our needs. The Pools and Spas were in working order and was at a comfortable temp. Don't let the old vacated hotel in the front of the property fool... More

My husband and I purchased a time share here through ebay and got an incredible deal. Before our trip we were looking online and reading all these reviews, and I was freaking out a little about what this place was really going to be like. We usually stay at nice above average (but not the most expensive) resorts when we... More

We booked this with RCI. It was initially a disappointment becausethere is an abandoned hotel in the front of the property which needs to be detonated and removed so you think you are arriving in a third-world country and aren't sure where to go or how to manage. This resort is hidden and has very little signage to help you... More

My wife and I were disappointed. We traded our timeshare for our stay here and we definitely traded down. The facility can be best described as an old apartment complex with a huge pool. It is on the beach and I’ll say again, the pool is huge. However, calling this place a resort borders on fraud unless it’s meant to... More

My grandparents were very generous to my new wife and I and gave us a time share to use for our honeymoon. We ended up at the Coral Reef Resort. I'll tell you the good first. The room has everything you need, fridge, oven, utinsels, two sinks (+ kitchen sink). It is also right on the beach, which is nice.... More
