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!

I stayed with my wife and 2 kids, in unit 202 ( I think it was) Ocean front.. we couldn't have been closer to the Ocean. It was just perfect. It isn't the fanciest place on earth but I loved it. We watched sunrise on Sunday morning, and enjoyed the beach to the fullest. I will go back.

Traded our DRI timeshare and got a one bedroom beachfront. Which surprised me since in the world of timeshares the owners always get the prime units. The staff was very friendly at checkin and the unit was very clean. It had everything you need for a home away from home unit if you want to eat in and plenty of... More

The owner wants $500 to upgrade to a 1 bedroom ste, pool/ocean view when I traded my home resort, which is equivalent to a 1 Bedroom Ste. I get to look at the street for 5th anniversary/college graduation celebration. They even had my last name wrong when I called to verify my reservation. I am not very happy that someone... More

I grew up in Vero Beach and remember passing by this place but never knew anyone that stayed there. I haven't been back in a few years so my fiance and I decided to go on a very last minute trip for Easter weekend. Every other hotel on the beach was completely booked so I jumped on this place when... More

I have never stayed at any motel or hotel that has had such terrible parking arrangements for guests. I booked their most expensive ocean front unit. The hotel has a restaurant (Bobby's) on its property. I parked our car and the first night we came back to the hotel after shopping only to find that all the parking spaces were... More

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 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
