We just stayed a week in Reef 303 and loved the suite and the property. Staff was very friendly and helpful when needed. Draw back is the all inclusive. The bar at the Hacienda Real is open till 4am which the all inclusive has full access to. Odd thing is that the all inclusive guests only get served till 11 pm. That means it is not all inclusive! Second thing is unlike any other all inclusive resort, you have to sign your bill after each meal/drinks. With regular all inclusive resorts, your wrist band is your access to food and drink with no signature needed. So, if you just grab a beer before you go to your room, you have to find your waiter and then they have to print your receipt for you to sign. Not a huge issue but a bit of a pain when you have been to other all inclusive resorts. These were the only 2 drawbacks. The beach is beautiful and location is 1 block off 5th Ave. 2 blocks from the Hacienda Real, 3 blocks from Coco Bongo and 7 blocks from the ferry. Also only 3 blocks to Wal-Mart for the alcohol you will need after 11pm! LOL would definitely go back, just might not do all inclusive if that is possible.
