We were at the Reef Ocean Resort in May...it's small and very nice. We were in a one bedroom. It did have a pull out couch but it would have been tough with more than two of us in a room I think. Loved that it was right on the beach. there are lots of places to eat nearby but... More

we had a queen suite for one night, you could have four sleep here, but it would be tight. They have a curtain between the bed and studio area, which is a very nice feature. The room has a small kitchenette and a small bathroom, the bed was very comfortable. If you walk to the back of the property, you... More

If your looking for a hotel right on the beach, without breaking your budget. This is it. This resort has almost everything you need for a getaway. The rooms are a little outdated. But remember you came for the beach & the many daily resort activities. The resort is few miles from Vero Beach Factory shopping outlet and the local... More

The location is fabulous. Great beach with minimal wave action, many restaurants within easy walking distance, and shopping, shopping, shopping! The resort has several small two story buildings centered around the pool and jacuzzi. There are tennis courts, shuffleboard, grills and picnic tables for your use. Also ,there is a play area for the children. Beach chairs and umbrellas were... More

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!
