This hotel is family friendly - not a lot of frills but is affordable, convenient right on the beach. The kids loved it and we had everything we needed. We cooked almost every meal - I bought a nice skillet at a nearby Tuesday morning - we had everything else we needed for our meals. It reminded me of vacation...

Awesome staff. Fun facility. Very family friendly! I would for sure stay here again. The only draw back is that the room could have used updating, but it seemed they were working on that, so maybe just not my room yet. There is awesome pizza take out in the hotel next door.

Visited the crown reef years ago and wanted to return. Tried to book but they didn't allow checkin on Friday for some rooms and the ones they did allow checkin on Friday they didn't allow checkout on Sunday! Geez, it's the off season! Guess you don't want my business anymore!

Service was excellent, room was cleaned daily, waterpark was always entertaining. We were literally a walkway away from the ocean. One morning we were out of coffee and called the desk within 5-10 minutes they were knocking on the door! Not only would I recommend the Crown Reef to anyone, we are already planning next years!!!

This is an older hotel with broken elevators. The AC in the arcade not working when we visited so we were unable to play games due to the heat. Our room was clean and the ocean view was fantastic. Average customer service. This hotel is perfect for a family vacation, nothing fancy.

My husband and I stayed here for several nights. His work was having a training week at the resort. The room was comfortable and spacious with a small kitchen. The bathroom was a little small given the size of the suite. But it met our needs. The bed was comfortable. One thing the room was lacking (and this is really...

Kristen T., Thank you so much for posting a review on TripAdvisor. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay! We certainly do understand the importance of having a full-length mirror in the bedroom.

Reserved a Jacuzzi Suite hotel room. Hotel did not notify me that they moved me to a different hotel until the day of trip so I couldn't cancel free of charge. The hotel they moved me to was of lesser quality and price than what I pre paid with the crown reef. Never staying there again.

We travel to the beach often, and we have made this our hotel of choice, until now. We booked our Thanksgiving trip at this resort 2 months ago. Thankfully, I booked thru Expedia, so I had some kind of "insurance" for this reservation. So, right now it's 2 weeks until Thanksgiving, and we were getting geared up for our vacation....
