Visited friends for the day who stayed here. It's right next door to the trade winds resort but less expensive. It's not updated with the latest and greatest but most places aren't . But it was clean. They had a one bedroom unit. It had small kitchen area with fridge, dishwasher, sink , microwave can't remember if they had a... More

We stayed here 3 nights to extend our week long stay at Madeira Beach. Room was large, living room, efficiency kitchen, bath area with dual sinks, bedroom, storage. Daily maid service was a welcome surprise. There was no private outdoor space, but large wrap around balcony/hallway with chairs outside each room. Pools (2) and hot tubs (3) were beautiful and...

If you're looking for a semi dated resort with a beautiful beach and do not have high expectations for your room then coral reef will suit you. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly (minus one office staff member who will not be named). If you have a concern they will help you very quickly. The rooms are dated, the... More

This place gets better every time we visit. They have upgraded the pool. They are also keeping up with upgrading the condo interiors. There are no bad views. 12 units face the water directly. The rest of the units have a nice angled side view of the ocean. If you like to cook, bring some utensils and pans, etc. The... More

We booked a room for the 4th of July weekend. We were set for many things to go wrong (knowing that they were fully booked) but to our surprise everything went smoothly from check-in to the cleanliness of the room and our view was FANTASTIC. When we asked for a couple extra pillows they were delivered promptly. All the staff... More

After traveling all day and arriving in a huge storm we stopped here, we don't typically stay in motels but were desperate for a room. The rooms were newly remodeled and very accommodating. I'm the morning we could see the property and the landscaping was beautiful and there was a lot to offer. This is an older property but it... More

I am a long time owner of weeks 21 & 22. These weeks always hit Memorial Day. The 1 bedroom 6 floor building is right on the beach and next to the smaller heated pool with a hot tub. The 4 story building sits behind with a clear view of the beach and sits next to the remodeled latge pool... More

The outdoor grounds have been totally renovated with new pools, decks, chsirs, etc. Very nicely done. The rooms have been updated within the last two years with granite counter tops, tile floors. Bed is very comfortable. Very nice accommodations on one of the best beaches in the US. Very reasonable prices for being right on the beach. Lots of bars... More

We recently finished a five week stay at the Coral Reef and as in the past there were highlights and things that could be improved in the Condo. The best thing about the Coral Reef is the location and their working staff. You are directly on the beach and can walk to numerous places to shop and eat. Their staff... More
