We were in condo C on the ground floor which was great as we didn't have to walk up the stairs and could just straight out onto the beach. Comfortable and clean, great daily maid service and well equipped kitchen including juicer so we had fresh orange juice every morning. Getting into the sea off the condo was a bit... More

Our stay was May 18-25, 2014. We loved the location, layout/ amenities of the condo, as well as the excellent service. It was a perfect getaway week for us. The snorkeling is excellent, right out the front door, just 75 feet to the water! Everything is maintained extremely well, including the daily cleaning. The Reef, Unit A is a beautiful... More

We just spent 8 days at the Reef Condominiums - UNIT A - on Half Moon Bay and it was a dream vacation spot! The condo was beautiful -- well-appointed and fully supplied -- a nice kitchen, pure water, lovely decor and eclectic hand-crafted decorations and doors opening to the beach and patio. The beach is sublime and sandy (just... More

We stayed in unit E on the second floor. There were 4 adults and two children, 2 1/2 yrs and 4 months. Play pens were provided and easily made into beds for the kids. The 2 queen size beds in the one bedroom were reported as hard, but the king size in the other was firm and comfy. Never needed... More

We stayed in The Penthouse at the Reef Condominiums in Half Moon Bay. Located directedly on the beach, there was a sea breeze making the apartment very comfortable all the time. The Penthouse has two bedrooms on opposite ends of the apartment, each of which has it's own full bathroom. There are two queen beds in one bedroom, and a... More

This is our third stay at the Reef. So yes, we really like it! We like the fact it isn't a huge building so always lots of space in the beach. The suites are spacious, well equipped and clean. The best part of all is that all units have a gorgeous beach view of Half Moon Bay. We will be... More

Turtles, turtles, turtles! Turtles grazing, turtles nesting, turtles hatching. It is just a magical place! This was our third time staying at The Reef, and we are already looking forward to the next visit. We have stayed in units A, B, and D, with friends in E & the penthouse. All units are incredibly clean, comfortable, and uniquely decorated with... More

I stayed in Unit A and it was exceptional. A little slice of heaven. The unit is on the ground floor and just a few steps away from the ocean. Beautifully decorated with all the amenities and appliances we could have ever wanted/needed. Comfortable, clean and a delight to stay. It truly felt like a home away from home. I... More

I love this condominium. I stay in Unit B on the ground floor. Every time I have stayed here it is always exceptionally clean. Love to make fresh coffee and watch the sun rise. The kitchen appliances are always in good working order, with everything you need. Steps away from the beach, with your own patio and palapa's with chairs... More

This was our second trip to this paradise on earth. We stayed again in the Penthouse (5 friends). If this place does not recharge your batteries nothing will. You have a beautiful view of Halfmoon Bay where you can see turtles popping their heads up. You can walk right down to the beach where your chairs and palapas await. Snorkeling... More
