This Caribbean themed hotel is a good place to stay for a family! The adventure pools and all the kids activities are really good. The rooms and the hotel overall is quite shabby and the fact that there is no fridge in the room is a little bit surprising for a family resort. We had nowhere to store babyfood so... More

It is an amazing place if you travel with children, the swimingpools are fantastic and my children of 4 years old enjoyed a lot, and the adults too. The room is correct, a bit old fashioned and the breakfast is really complet.

We really like the Reef. It is very children friendly but the restaurant is limited. Second visit with two year since the last one, and the buffet etc was exactely the same. Good beds. Nice rooms. Close to the ferry and the rest of the city. Nice swimming pools.

Great hotel with a large in-house water park with slides. Lots of other activities for children as well, and a nice breakfast. Spacious family rooms available. Highly recommended for a weekend getaway.
