The exterior grounds and location of this property is excellent, but I cannot say the same about the interior of the rooms. The furniture is really in dire need of replacement. The rooms are clean, but because of the furniture and dark colored draperies and sofa and chairs, it just never seemed bright and cheery. A brighter choice of color... More

We spent a week at Reef Ocean through our exchange program and loved it so much we booked another stay there this year. We had a lovely one bedroom overlooking the pool and the ocean. The unit was extremely clean and recently renovated. We had a nice size kitchenette, table, and adjoining living room. The couch could be used for... More

Friends picked this place for a Memorial Day weekend getaway. Perfect for folks who have kids. The pool is nice, adults acting grown up and kids being kids. No drunks. I think all rooms have an ocean view. The kitchen in our one bedroom had everything you need to cook multiple meals. (Some condo rentals are missing important tools!) if... More

We only spent one night and it was pouring, so we pretty much stayed on the grounds. We booked a studio for $75 plus tax! (We couldn't believe this price for a resort. It was very clean and comfortable. It was older but quite nicely updated. We had a full sized bed, large fridge, 4 burner apt stove, microwave, sink,... More

Absolutely loved the atmosphere here. We stayed in a ocean view efficient suite. Room was very clean, heated pool, hot tube. Didn't realize they had one bedroom efficient suite otherwise would of book it instead. The ocean view efficient suite are nicely located around the pool area. Usually only goto Vero beach for the day, but will make sure I... More

Awesome as always! This is the best kept secret on the beach! We has a poolside one bedroom and with a view of the ocean from our patio. Great dining within walking distance and Bobby's at the front of the resort with the best cheeseburger in town! Will definitely be back next year!

Sometimes in your life you just truly score. That's how my wife and I felt after spending five days and four nights at The Reef Ocean Resort in beautiful Vero Beach. Never in our lives had we felt like we were on the receiving end of a deal that seemed "too good to be true" as much as we did... More

We own a timeshare in the Ocean Reef Resort & do not regret buying. Our time share is on the 2nd floor above Bobby's restaurant with a view of the ocean from the balcony. What a nice place to spend a week, walking distance to fine shops, dining & beach. Room was exceptionally clean & furnished with all the comforts... More

Consists of a number of units located in three separate clusters ranging from studios to two bedrooms. All units feature complete kitchens. Rooms are clean with plenty of towels and soaps including kitchen and beach/pool towels. This comes in handy as the resort has a nice size pool and jacuzzi and is located right on the beach. The staff is... More

We had an ocean front room with a balcony on the second floor. Great view and a well kept condo. The room service provided by our two housekeepers was better than we expected, There is a restaurant called Bobbies next to our lobby that was excellent. The bartenders and servers were extremely nice to us. The food and drinks were... More
