We stayed at the Reef Club resort in June for 10 days. Two couples, all of us over 55. The 2 bedroom apartment on the top floor had a good aspect over the internal gardens and pool area. However, it was on the small size for 4 people so thank goodness we all got on well together especially as there was only 1 bathroom to share! The apartment was clean; the beds comfortable as was the sofa once we had used the cushions found on the beds but the overall ambience was that of "average". The kitchen was adequate but we felt that a few extra things could have been provided, like some storage containers and certainly more than four forks and four knives and one salad server? A little more care and attention to the overall decor could really lift the standard to "very good". We did find that the apartment block could be a little bit noisey with the shutting of apartment doors as well as loud children in the pool area and garden which seemed to be amplified between the 2 buildings that make up the complex. The lights on the balconies and the garden/bbq area go out at 9.30pm so noise is less of a problem later at night. The one big negative is that guests are allowed to smoke on the balconies. We enjoyed the fact that it was not far to walk from the Reef Club Resort to the beach. It was great to walk to town this way or walk to the flags for a swim or in the other direction for a bit of exercise. The view from the walkway up the side of the hill at the "town" end of the beach was absolutely beautiful and well worth the effort. Some may find the location a little far away from the town but as we are all walkers this did not bother us. We did not find the walk arduous which took approx 7 or 8 minutes to the start of Macrossan Street. Perhaps at hotter times of the year this could be a problem.
