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

Great location! Friendly and helpful staff and clean rooms. Restaurants and recreational activities are just a short walk away and it appears that the construction on the main pool that other reviewers have mentioned is almost complete. As of the first week of May when we visited, the pool was filled and the surrounding landscaping was being done.

The Demolition of the front building is completed and cleaned up.. The new pool is finished and things are looking good at the Coral Reef Resort again. Just in time for Summer fun with the kids on Vacation!

Coral Reef is sandwiched between two larger resorts. Its in the throes of remodeling. Once that is done there will be a beautiful large pool available. Right now just a secondary small pool and hot tub. It is a condo property gone timeshare. We were lucky to have room 202 which faced the gulf. Perfect for sunsets and early morning... More

Toilet ran all night, room was poorly cleaned. Sheets and pillow case had stains. Main pool was closed due to construction. For a hotel on the beach it was just that nothing extra. The beach is beautiful but if you plan to spend a lot of time in your room pay more and go else where
