The carpet was filthy. The door of the refrigerator had a big dent in it. Balcony doors wouldn't lock. Limited space in a 1 br room for 4 people. Overall dirty furniture. Bad smell in the room. Hotel staff was not friendly. Wifi would not work. We were told it was because there were too many people using it.

We've been going to The Reef for many years and there always seems to be something that goes wrong during our stays. This year is one day we didn't have hot water for a morning shower. The other problem which has remained a constant throughout the years is there is no internet. Oh, it will pop up occasionally but it's... More

As you walk into the lobby you'll think, 'Oh this place is nice", but trust me when I say those thoughts will be short lived. As we rounded the corner to the elevators the pungent musty smell became very distinct and followed us into the room. The pillars in the hallway near the elevators are deteriorating and even had caution... More

The lobby was beautiful and check in was a bit of a problem but was resolved after an hour or so... Room was ok but very space limited. The pool area I believe was the hot spot! Loved the vibe from the DJ and the drinks!!! Would probably come back but get a suite next time ☺️

When we arrived to the hotel we were asked for a 100 dollar deposit for any potential damage to the room during our stay. Then we were provided a paper that included several rules during the stay including no smoking on the balcony ( which people on both sides of us were smoking daily). The room appeared dated but clean... More

We stayed there 8/9 and 8/10. So many rules that could allow them to keep your deposit along with a possible 500.00 more if they deem fit, made this old hotel a horrible place to stay. I understand no smoking...but not even in your truck?? No vaping? At 55 years of age I hadn't planned on breaking any but the... More

Stayed at the reef on several visits to MB with my Grandparents. The reef held a lot of memories, so many that while on my honeymoon we stayed here for a night to swim. The place has not changed much it even smelled like I remembered it from 20 years ago. Very out dated and needs some TLC...that said, the... More
