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

What a great place. I've stayed at 5 star resorts, none of them put you 15 feet from the pool and 40 feet to tbe beach. If you're coming to the ocean to sit inside go someplace else. If you're coming to play or relax. The Reef is you're perfect hid out. Thi

Exchanged through Interval and only choice was a studio. It was the smallest unit I have ever seen. At least on first floor. What I liked was the close proximity to the beautiful beach. Although we did not have a view it was a very short walk to the beach. Could walk to many wonderful places down the beach or... More

We spent 7 nights at the "Reef" last week and loved it. It's in a great location on a beautiful beach with abundant restaurants and nightlife within easy walking distance including the onsite Bobby's restaurant, great happy hour. Reading previous reviews I noted that the TV's have been replaced with high end flatscreens and there is now inroom wifi with... More

I loved this little place, nestled between the swanky Vero Beach Hotel and Spa and the Costa D'Este down the beach. As one regular said to me: it's all the same beach. The people staying here were all very friendly. I particularly loved our room, ground floor, facing the pool. It made for a great hang out spot for our... More

Thank you for your great review. You are correct we are known as the hidden gem in Vero Beach. For the future, we do have beach chairs and umbrellas at the office for the price of one dollar a day. What a bargain. We also have rental options with a local company for additional beach activities: surf boards, paddle boards,... More

We had a check in time of 4pm and at 5pm we where still waiting for our room! Never have we been treated so poorly. We had called ahead asking for early check-in and when check in time came at 4pm we were pushed back to 5pm. Front desk people basically said "guess you just have to sit and wait"... More

I'm sorry to hear about the late check in. I would like to see everyone get into their rooms in a timely manner and also treated respectfully while you wait. We are a fixed timeshare and it is often a waiting game for one customer to check out so we can clean and move another customer into that room. There... More

We had an "Oceanside", one bedroom, unit that was so close to the ocean that you could toss a pebble underhand into the water. The pool and pool area was neat and clean and the hot tub was the same. There is a 2-hole mini putting green and two shuffleboard courts. A small tennis court is available to use, but... More
