Our only regret is that we had only arranged to stay one night whilst travelling to Key West. We occupied beach house 9 which is the closest to ocean. It is simply idyllic and Linda the owner and her excellent staff including her son run the resort in a relaxed and welcoming manner. Our beach house consisted of sitting room,...

Thank you for the wonderful review. We are so glad that you took the time to see the love and care that we put into Rock Reef. We try to explain that we are not a full service, larger hotel and I think you said it best. We like to get know about the people who share their time with...

We stayed one night on our trip down to Key West. Our only complaint was the room smelled alittle musty when we first walked in. Other than the musty smell, the room was quite nice, and very clean. We had a 2 bedroom which worked out perfect for 2 couples traveling together. Did not spend much time by the water,...

Great staff! Clean rooms with a mini fridge and microwave. Great location. Small clean pool, hammocks, dock, boat slips, outdoor grill, paddle boat, kayaks...The rooms are quiet, the beds are comfortable and the atmosphere is laid back. I felt like I was at home, only in the keys. There is ample easy parking. There are plenty of great restaurants and...

We stayed in one of the bungalows right along the water. My only complaint was a bit of a musty smell, but opening the windows helped to clear it out. It was wonderful walking right out the door onto the beach, which was quiet and there were always lounge chairs available. I will definitely return when I travel to Key...

Thank you for staying with us. We are sorry there was a odor, but are glad the just opening the windows did away with it. We will try to be more alert when checking our units. It is so enjoyable to sit and be able to view the water or wild life from the room or your own porch swing....

Beautiful and quiet resort with small private beech, pool and decking. Great for families and grown ups alike and really friendly, helpful staff. We spent several happy hours paddling around in the free kayaks watching the manatees. Unforgettable stay and we'd love to return soon to visit from the UK. Thank you.

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...

Thank you for staying with us and for your review.

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...
