I stayed in Condo "C" which is on the ground level. I spent a lot of time looking for my location for a 3+ week stay and am delighted that I decided on The Reef Condo "C". The owner has given much time, thought and investment to make this condo truly Mexican. Unlike many "off the shelf" condos all down... More

We stayed in unit "A" and thought it was a very nice place. Nicely decorated. The price was right too. We would go back in the future EXCEPT for 2 things. #1 .. the bed is hard! Not firm --- HARD! My wife prefers a firm mattress but even she found sleeping on it difficult. #2 .. The exterior light.... More

For our return to Akumal we decided to stay at The Reef instead of in one of the villas at Akumal Sur. We were a group of 5 so we stayed in a 2 bedroom on the second floor. We had beautiful views of the ocean, beach sunrise and set. I have many good things to say about the accommodations.... More

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.
