We needed a place for one night, and this was sufficient and well-located on Route 1. The young woman who checked us in was not particularly friendly or welcoming, tho I would say when we checked out the other woman was very nice. The room lighting is a bit dim and the bed I slept in was too soft and...

Love this place! Nice rooms and beautiful outdoor areas to enjoy! You can lounge by the pool or the gulf! Watch the sunset! Wonderful wildlife! Iguanas, squirrels, and many species of birds! Even seen the manatees early in the morning feeding! Absolutely beautiful!

The Resort is cozy and relaxing right by the ocean. You basically find all you need right there. Pool, beach access, huge parking, small store across the street. We stayed here only 1 night, but our room was well prepared for all 5 people. The front desk agent(gentleman from Czech Republic) was super friendly and helpful. Thank you for making...

This was a spontaneous trip with no reservations pre-planned. One of us had been to Rock Reef before and when I mentioned my dream of a cottage by the water, he headed straight there. The cabin by the water was available and it was just like my dream. We planned on staying one night but it was so peaceful and...

We visited Rock Reef again in January. We found the same high standard of care as before. The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Linda and her staff make you feel right at home. The pool is inviting and watching the sunset from the dock is the best way to start your evening. When in the Keys there is...

Our visit was in mid January 2017. We had a room with 2 double beds in the building nearest the road. In spite of that, road traffic noise was not a big issue. However, the people in the adjoining room could be heard through the doors that separated the two rooms, almost as if they were on the other side...

Stayed for three days in February -- wonderful weather, sunsets were beautiful, very peaceful and relaxing, activities are nearby if you want them or just chill on the dock. Only drawback -- bed wasn't very comfortable and the pillows were hard -- well worth the trade-off --- great value for the location

Cute little hotel on Key Largo. We felt the hotel offered a great location, beautiful waterfront, good value, clean (somewhat dated but well maintained) rooms, and polite and helpful staff. We would definitely go back.

As a business owner, I have adopted the saying for my operations with hiring, "hire slow, fire fast." Sadly, my arrival at the Rock Reef Resort, got off on a bad footing. I booked this accommodation through AAA, and received a confirmation and confirmation number. When I arrived at the hotel they had no record of this reservation. I immediately...

We stayed there for our second time over the New Year's weekend. The style is old FL in all of the good ways. We especially liked spending time outside in the garden, on the dock,and on the private beach. The pool was great and the kayaks let us explore further out. There were other guests but not so many that...
