As owners, we go twice a year. June is a great time to take the grandkids. They love the ocean & pool. Plus there are other kids around for them to make friends with. Plus it's turtle nesting season and you never know if you'll see one coming ashore at night. This past June we rented a paddleboard from Orchid... More

We had a studio unit last time...we liked it so much we purchased two weeks in a one bedroom unit.You should be aware that this is a time share facility that does not try to pressure you into buying....

We own a time share in the Ocean Reef resort & always enjoy going back. The rooms are well maintained, ample amount of dishes/bedding/towels. Located right on the ocean & close to shopping, restaurants & beach for your enjoyment.

You absolutely can't beat the view we had. We traded a week at our home resort for a 1 bedroom apartment, ocean front. We were there Dec 6-13. The surf was unusually high because of a storm and it was a bit cool. There are many benches facing the ocean; people fed the birds, took pictures and just enjoyed the... More

This vacation was primarily for my parents. We rented them a one bedroom suite downstairs that faced the beach so that it would be easy for them to get in and out of. We rented an exact duplicate upstairs. Both views were great. Downstairs they could pretty much just walk out their sliding glass doors and within just a few... More

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 The rooms are a little outdated.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
