Everyone from Oscar at the front door to Phillipe and Xavier at the dive shop were warm, friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and spacious and in a beautiful setting. There are many lovely outdoor areas to enjoy but the beach and ocean are perfection. The Reef is a 10 minute walk to downtown 5th avenue and the ferry to Cozumel so that is another plus. The activity team is always making sure everyone is having fun and they do a fabulous job. We had massages at the the Reef spa....heaven.
We have stayed at other resorts in Playacar and there are positives and negatives to all. The others we stayed at had nice amenities but were so large you had to walk 15 minutes to get to the ocean from your room. The reef is smaller and because of that it does not have all the amenities of a larger resort. There are not as many food and resaurant choices but we were able to find things that we liked. The friday night Mayan dinner show with Mexican food was our favorite. We really liked the smaller more intimate feel of the Reef and we met lots of fun people vacationing from around the world. We would book at the Reef again.
