This place was completely disgusting. The price was really good, however the minute I walked into the room I felt grossed out. Carpets filthy, things falling apart, mold in the bathroom. The exterior was also really run down and nasty. The breakfast was a serious joke. Please don't waste your time. The only positive thing is that it was oceanfront.... More

The advertised indoor play area and water park is NOT indoor. In fact it really didn't matter since we waited til 4PM for the water park to open before finally giving up and going to Broadway at the Beach. Also, the indoor pool is cold and the area around the indoor pool and other common areas are filthy and run... More

I have been keeping up with the Crown Reef reviews for several months since I had planned a wedding reception and room block at the property. Most of the reviews have been terrible lately, so I was quite worried, but stuck with it. Here is my personal pros/cons list of the property after my event there: Pros: Everyone I met... More

We were a bit put off by reports of bed bugs and were prepared to go elsewhere if we found any, but happily our beds were just fine. The resort is aging, but is clean and has a great pool area with multiple swimming areas, jacuzzis, and water canals and slides. The families were having a ball. Food options are... More

We arrived 9/02 for a 4 night stay. The weather was absolutly beautiful the whole time. We first stayed @ the Crown Reef Sept. 5,2008 for our honeymoon. Sharring our arival that evening was hurricane Hanna. Weather cleared and we had a wonderful time. Our return trip this past summer was great. The resort had been "overhauled" so to speak.... More

We stayed at the crown reef for our fall vacation and had an awesome time. Despite the negative reviews on tripadvisor, I didn't see any bed bugs or roaches in the room, the room was clean and housekeeping came everyday to clean up. The pools were clean and my 1 year old had a wonderful time. Everyone I dealt with... More

We stayed here for 3 nights with 4 kids and a great time was had by all. Upon our arrival we checked in and were given a room only to find it not cleaned so I immediately called the front desk and was told to go to guest services. I went there and Chanda was awesome!!!! She gave us another... More

I stayed at Crown Reef for a week during summer with my sister and her two teenage grandsons. Everyone had a blast! We had an Oceanfront Queen Jacuzzi suite which worked out great because there were four individual places to sleep. Everyone on the staff was very nice and helpful. The first day I told housekeeping to forget the decaf... More

Stayed at the Crown Reef as it was headquarters hotel for a convention I was attending. I won't go back. The biggest surprise was the smoke detector in my room: it activated when I turned the a/c off and put the heat on. Other surprises: Check-in wasn't in the hotel, but in the convention center across the street! Room phone... More
