This hotel reminded us of a 60's era motel in an excellant beachfront location. This is an "old school" type of timeshare. Our unit was in front which was not great as far as noise but was made better by the fact that the people who work here go out of their way to make one feel welcomed. There is... More

We checked into our time share @ Ocean Reef & once again pleasantly pleased with the way the resort is taken care of. Our room as all others was just refurbished with a new pillow top bed. Plenty of good nights sleep... More

We arrived early around 2 and they put us right into our room. The Staff is great and the resort is VERY clean and well kept. The pool and hot tub area are very nice. Of course there is the beach and the resort is right on it. There is a great restaurant & lounge "Bobby's" right on the property... More

We stayed for Labor Day Weekend. The hotel is clean, the views are amazing, the staff are wonderful, from the front desk to the housekeepers, to the maintenance crew, all are friendly, helpful, and truly add to the experience. Our room was at the front of the property, but we were still so close to the pool and ocean. There... More

We had a one bedroom apartment in exchange of our timeshare. It was small but enough for the couple of us. I wonder how bigger families would stay. It has a nice view on the ocean. It is located nearby different restaurants. The beach is big and nice in spite of the cold water of the Atlantic Ocean. We saw... More

We go to the Reef Ocean every single year. Rooms are great, people are friendly and you simply cannot get any closer to the water. It is great to wake up and hear the waves!!!! My favorite South Florida destination!
