    I booked a room for June 2014, and was skeptical due to all the negative reviews. I almost cancelled my reservation, but I'm glad i didn't. Yes, the property was under renovations, but it didn't impact my family's vacation. We stayed in the King Deluxe Suite, and it was nicely renovated. The new kitchen appliances were a nice touch. I...

    We chose Crown Reef because of the location (near the pier, away from the busiest area of resorts/beach)and also based on having indoor games, restaurant, water park and pool as the weather would be cool in February.The price was around $450 for 5 nights which seemed good. We drove from Canada and actually arrived several hours early, and tried for... More

PROS: nice breakfast, nice bar, GREAT swimming pool area with more than enought hot tubs, a large pool, a lazy river, and a water park (basically underneath the entire hotel), looks like a nice beach when warmer, also very nice...

    Me and my husband stayed there for a week and the price was great but I see why. We were not happy at all. We did not get to spend any time at the pool due to lack of chairs and people putting their towels all over the chairs by 7am and then half the time they sat empty. Do... More
