There is something about this place that wants me to keep coming back. This is my second time at the Reef (came by myself in October 2012) and I brought 2 girlfriends with me. It was paradise (again)! In fact, this time I went to Seven Mile Beach to check out the other side of the island. After a few hours my friends were saying 'can we go back to our side, it is so much better.' If you want the party scene,then the Reef is not for you. If you want to be able to sit out on your patio, listen to and watch the waves, walk our from a ground floor room directly onto the sand, into the water - then this is the place for you. No fancy lobbies, no fancy restaurants, just a very low-key type of paradise.
A few things . . . I rented a car this time at the airport, big mistake for me. I don't like driving on the left side of the road, especially at sunset when you may see crabs crossing the road (yes crabs and unfortunately I hit a few). Since I don't wander far from the resort, I really didn't need a car . . . You need to go to Tucca, I have done the Walkabout Wednesday both times where you get appetizer, soup, entree, dessert, and a glass of wine for $40 - it has such a great vibe . . Did go to Stingray City this time, took the morning trip (only 7 of us) and we were the only ones out there for the first feeding and then did some snorkeling; this was AMAZING! . . . Ok it did rain a few days but we sat in the hot tub, drank, met some great people, snorkeled, met some other great people, drank at the bar, met some other great people . . . . I'll see you there next year! This is truly my paradise.
