This place is a hidden budget friendly gem! I travelled here with 2 other girlfriends... our room decor was the total key west floral style... cheesy but charming. I loved the grounds though. They have these mega hammocks by the lake and scattered around the premises. You hear all the nature sounds. I loved it.

A perfect getaway spot for us on our 20th anniversary mini-moon. Friendly staff, great oversized room with huge seating area over the pool, and quiet. Loved the little private beach and dock. The pool is lovely. Great spot for watching sunset and the night sky. An hour and 20 minute drive from home and we felt like we had been... More

It's a great place with a dock, boat ramp, and boat slips. We loved the convenience of leaving the boat in the water overnight. It's a very quiet, low-key resort. Our room was small but clean and had a small fridge and microwave, which was great. Prices are fairly high but Rock Reef Resort has a pool, several hammocks in... More

The is a lovely old fashioned resort. Beautiful quiet waterfront and retro motel rooms. Colorful iguanas and other lizards all over the place entertained us. Our room was small but immaculate. It seems that the cottages closer to the water are roomier and more private.

Very nice accommodations. Rooms were clean, shower hot and the view was great. Perfect for a keys get a way. Enjoyed the pool and the beach swim area. Just minutes away from anything in Key Largo that you need including restaurants, diving, grocery store etc. Employees and owner were super friendly. I would definitely go back.

I went with my family to visit the keys and decided to stay at the Rock Reef Resort. We were 6 adults and took two rooms, one of them was beach front. This place is beautiful. You can relax on the hammock and watch the sunset or do a nice bbq. The pool is temperated, that means that is aleays... More

Things were just not well thought out in the room we stayed in. We are a family of 5 so we got a 2 bedroom suite with 4 beds. The room size was fine, but it was lacking in other areas. The tub was stained and the drain became clogged after the second day. We told the attendant at check... More

This place was fun, relaxing, and peaceful. Our first time here, we stayed in room 4. It's a little dated inside but is quiet and has ample space. The owner showed us cabin 8, which is so pretty! It has a step-down kitchen, skylights, private porch with swing, and a big "Dade County pine-paneled" bedroom/bath. You just don't find such... More

Stayed here on a Friday and Saturday night. Was able to check in early. This is a small family owned place. Rooms were very clean and owner and staff very friendly. Didn't use pool but looked good. Did try out a kayak. They let me leave my car parked there on checkout day while I was on charter fishing trip.... More

Stayed one night in the main building. Room was very functional, clean and spacious. Short walk to the bayside dock/marina/beach. Beautiful spot for sunset watching. Very reasonably priced. Ballyhoos restaurant is across the street, very convenient.
