My family and I (locals) wanted to visit and take the kids to the water park. We were greeted with a water park that closes at 8:00 PM, the only on site restaurant that closes at 8:00 PM and very bad customer service. We were at the water park and asked the employee working there for towels (who by the... More

Stay with with family, lots of things for the kids to do and was a good value. The rooms was nice. Didn't care for the elevators they needed updating.i really didn't like having to walk across the street to check in especially having small kids. The water park was great just not much for toddlers to do

We have stayed here multiple times and love it! Rooms are clean, staff is very friendly and helpful. Love the pools and water slides! Appreciate that fact they will allow you to smoke on balcony if you are a smoker! This is difficult to find in the area.

Before I begin this, I just want to say that, YES we did have family time and YES we did have fun in the pool and waterslide......We get there and get on the elevator. Press 1st floor, we were parked on the 2nd. Elevator goes up, stops, drops down to ground, goes back up to 2nd, drops down AGAIN and... More

"Excellent Stay!" I'm at the Tower 2 bldg for approximately 8 days. I have have had Judy service my room who has been not only efficient but courteous and pleasant. She also adjusted her schedule to come to clean around the time that I would ask of her. She is truly an asset to this resort! The room which I... More

We have been staying at Crown Reef for two years now and just love the hotel. It is a little older but there so much to offer there for families. There is often an internet special where you can save big if you book in advance. Susan at the Loco Gecko bar and grill is awesome. She remembers us, my... More

I almost cancelled our reservation based on some of the more recent reviews here as I am an avid user of tripadvisor and boy am I glad we didn't! I imagine some of the reviews here are because people want this hotel all to themselves!!!! Check in with Stephanie was a breeze. The motto is "the friendliest hotel" and that... More

I liked this hotel. It was older but seemed to be kept up nicely. View was wonderful! Only downside was that the walls seem to be pretty thin and you can hear everything going on around you. Also, the pool area was extremely crowded with many unsupervised children running around. Overall it was a nice hotel with an pleasant and... More

We live locally and when my daughter wanted to have a birthday party at a pool or waterpark in January, we chose Crown Reef. The eight year old children enjoyed the water slides. However, the adults were really disgusted by how dirty the tables and chairs were in the section where we were to eat. I had to request cleaning... More

Stayed for four nights last Sept and one in January. On the first visit the elevators were in and out of order. Also had a very wonky feel. This trip I brought the kids back because they had indoor pool and tubs. With the water slides. Don't be fooled none of these are heated. Only the hot tubs and they... More

Hi Mighty H. we want to thank you for your recent review. Our elevators are currently in the process of either being replaced or serviced. We are truly excited about this project and want to thank you for being patient with us. Also, the temperature of our pools are 84 degrees and that temperature is monitored daily. It is unfortunate... More
