If you look at the previous review it is totally accurate! Modest units with everything you need. We stayed in a studio and loved sitting out in the chairs on the common balcony with a nice breeze. The wall is high so when you are sitting you see the other units but mostly the tops of palm trees. Beach is...

This place is great. When we pulled up I was not sure what to expect because it is not a big fancy hotel. We were pleasantly surprised that this place is beyond clean inside the rooms. We stayed in a studio which is along the road. Some rooms looked out at the pool and you can see palm trees and...

These are beautiful apartments, facing onto the beach, exceptionally large bedrooms and beds, lots of wardrobe space, a lovely bright seating area, and a cosy sitting area in the evening, they have TVs, lovely bathrooms, tiled floors and a small balcony

These are small units, but we weren't in Florida to stay inside. There's a bedroom, a bathroom, with a sink outside, a kitchenette and a living room with a sleeper sofa. Our balcony overlooked the ocean. The resort has a pool and is steps from the beach. We arrived shortly after the hurricane in early October. The beach had some...

We took some time to visit the Reef Ocean Resort & were pleasantly surprised upon checking into our room for a week. Located on 2nd floor facing the ocean & was just refurbished. New flooring thru out, new central ac & fresh linens & decorations. When checking in we were pleasantly greeted by a young man & assured us our...

We used an Interval International exchange for one bedroom apartment. The apartment was quite small but well furnished with a lovely patio overlooking the pool and ocean. Just opening the curtains in a morning was great for watching the sunrise. We really liked the friendly feeling of the resort and all the staff were very nice. We had a fully...

An older resort. Not the Ritz, but everything you would need, including free WiFi. Perfect oceanfront location with excellent restaurant inside. Small pool. Close to other restaurants and shopping. Best part is endless beach right outside your patio. Enjoyed our stay.

Just finished up a week at Reef Ocean and had a great time. This is about the 7th year in a row that we have stayed here. Rooms are clean and the ocean is just steps away. Kitchen has everything that you need - Office and housekeeping staff are terrific. It's got an old fashioned Florida feel that we really...

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...

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...
