We had previously stayed at Reef Resort in 2007 and had lovely large rooms that were right beside the pool, so when we booked two rooms for April 2013, we booked what they called Pool Side rooms on Agoda. When we arrived we found that they weren't the same room category we had booked previously so we paid a reasonable fee for an upgrade to what Reef Resort calls a Poolside Suite (which it isn't - it's just a large room) and Poolside Twin (which is also a large room but with two double beds). The rooms were quite clean and although a bit spartan, were pleasant. The big problem with the Poolside Suite was that the bed was unbearably uncomfortable. You could not only feel the springs protruding but you could even see them. As the hotel wasn't full, we requested whether they could bring a mattress from another room and swap it out for us. Instead, they brought what they called a spare mattress, which was a very minimal improvement over the original one. By contrast, our family members found the mattresses in the Poolside Twin room to be very comfortable and almost new.
Other impressions: Breakfast was quite good; Restaurant staff varied from friendly to cool and indifferent. There was construction going on in the hotel during the day and the pool area was quite noisy during the day. We like the location of this hotel and would stay again but they do have some upgrading/updating to do.
