I am currently at the Reef Ocean sitting on the balcony looking at the ocean. The place is amazing. I see bad reviews and i am confused. Yes the place is alittle dated but the friendly clean environment makes it worth it. We are early risers and the maintenance that is done when no one is watching is what matters... More

We were looking for a lower price room in Vero Beach but were not able to find anything... but then we asked at the reception and were surprised by their low rates... first we though there must be something wrong... but there wasen't! We stayed in a new looking small studio (including great kitchen and huge fridge). The bed was... More

Locating and booking accommodation on the internet is a bit of a dart toss. Sometimes you score a triple 20, sometimes you miss the board altogether. We didn't book Reef Ocean Resort on the internet, but we still consider it consider our week there a triple 20, as we found it after the place we did book on line turned... More

We were here for a week ending December 8, 2012. The first thing you need to know is it is not a resort. The decor is something out of the 70's. There are no amenities unless you consider Bobby's restaurant who fills the air with smoke and whose drunk patrons wake you at midnight. Don't bother complaining to the management;... More

We just came back yesterday from a week at Ocean Reef. We own a timeshare there but I doubt we'll be back. The apartment was cramped but our big family is used to that. My biggest complaint is about the ants. We had to put all our food in the fridge to keep them away. One night as we ate... More

My family enjoyed staying at this small resort through an Interval exchange. Even though this is an older property and fairly small (60 rooms?) we had a great vacation. Some reviewers complained about parking, but we had no problems. We received a parking permit when we checked in and displayed it on the dashboard. Some rooms have older, non-HDTVs but... More

The resort is located in a wondrful area, right on the beach, a short walk to many great places to eat and drink. It is clean, the staff is helpful and we would certainly stay there again. It is a simple place, not full of fancy extras but a solid value. .

The Reef is located on the beach. It's less then 20 feet from my door to the beautiful white sands of Vero Beach. If your looking for waterfront rooms, you'll find it here.

Stayed in a one bedroom, oceanside, second floor unit. The best thing about Ocean Reef is the location!!!!! The ocean front location was wonderful. The actual units are well kept, with many ground keeper types staff present and available. The decor in the unit is somewhat dated, but I was willing to overlook that because the unit was clean and... More
