My wife and I have stayed here twice. It is a great location, with a very good restaurant on site.Local love the rest restaurant in off season so that tells you something about the quality of food. Resort people are very friendly and will help in any way they can. Accommodations are above average, clean but a little dated. We... More

The resort has been there for years, is only two stories, is very clean, is within walking distance to everything, but has no elevator (should you be assigned to an upstairs room). The restaurant is Bobby's and the food is out of this world! The best thing about it is the location, it's right on the beach and the downtown... More

We had an excellent time here! The people are friendly and helpful. The showers were hot and the room was cold after long days on the beautiful private beach connected to the property. We didn't use the pool but it also looked excellent. The rooms were a little outdated but everything was super comfortable. I would definitely visit again.

This place is clean (that is why it got 3 stars). The pool is small, the hottub is the size of a thimble (don't plan to use it, 3 people max). If you are a hotel person, this place is old and showing it's age, if you are thinking of trading you time share don't. The staff is not very... More

We lucked out when we booked this place. I didn't realize it is right next to the Vero Beach Resort and Spa, which charges more than twice as much. These are condos rented by the owners. Spring for the ocean side units and you won't be disappointed. However, bring your own beach chairs and umbrellas because there is no concierge.... More

We come to the Reef Ocean every year for a week and love it. You cannot get closer to the beach! The staff is always welcoming and wonderful to us...everyone from the front office to the housekeeping and maintenance are all good folks. My only two complaints would be the parking is waaay too tight(I'd love to drive my truck... More

My wife and I booked this resort for the second week in July. We have stayed in some nice resorts through our Starwood timeshare. We rolled over a week and used it outside of the usual Starwood group. Big mistake. While the staff have been really nice and the place seems pretty clean, it is like taking a trip back... More

Lynette should not have a job for the embarrassment she put us through. This is really only a resort for "owners". There was a sweet young lady at the desk that made everything better for Lynettes actions. Lynette, the older women at the desk, was very rude the first morning we met her. We asked for a recommendation for breakfast... More

My husband's family has had a timeshare here since the beginning, and now we do as well. Units are most comfortable for couples, but the efficiencies and one-bedroom units have pullout sofas that work for the kids. Before we had kids, we also stayed once in one of the studio units above the restaurant, which had a nice layout but... More

Really loved the room here and the ease of access from the pool to the ocean. Very kid friendly and comfortable rooms. We used the grills quite frequently and brought our own food to cook for the week using the fully equipped kitchen. Plates, silverware, glasses... everything was there! If you have Netflix, bring your laptop for nightly entertainment as... More
