Reef Club
Reviewed April 25, 2010

CONS: Paint was literally peeling off the walls. Fitted sheets had no elastic so the bottom sheet and mattress pad kept coming off the beds during the night. Master suite with king bed had an ok mattress but the twin beds and double bed mattresses were awful. Sofa had a big hole in it and the springs were shot. Dirt in corners of all the rooms and behind the doors. Stove was impossible to cook on because the burners were so crooked. Leftover food was still in the cupboards. Only one parking place assigned. Parking was very tight if you had an SUV. No cable and tv set was old.

PROS: Beautiful views from living and master bedroom rooms. Nice pool, tennis court and beach. Plenty of storage and closet space. Close to everything. Usually quieted down by midnight except for one night when a party on the balcony went on all night although several people asked for them to take the party inside.

I understand that each condo is individually owned and some are updated and some are not. BE SURE YOU SEE PICTURES OF THE CONDO YOU ARE RENTING!!

the parking at reef club is terrible they give u 2 parking passes but there is no parking if u go away at night figure u are going to get a ticket everyone reserves the chairs on the deck and there is not enough of them to go around . I have traveled every spring break and this is the worse place i have stayed in and will not be returning i wish i had read reviews before reserving this place . plum tree has been great i will use them again any day but never with the reef club.

There are good reviews of this unit, which I am sure must be very nicely furnished, but unfortunately I did not have the opportunity to find out. I have to strongly recommend anyone reading this post NOT to rent 202. I negotiated my vacation directly with the owner of this unit, Sherif, over several emails, and I gave him my credit card information as a deposit. When he learned that my family wanted to rent another unit at the Reef Club he pressured me to complete the rental of a second unit through him, so he could make a commission. I tried to make this happen, but ultimatley the decision was not up to me, but another family member, who used a rental agency. When he learned that he would not make the commission of a second rental, he refused to honor the rental of my unit, #202, that was already agreed on! He treated me very rudely, as well. I was simply stunned that a business person would treat a customer this way. Do yourself a favor and rent another place.

Lovely apartment, great location near the beach! Unfortunately the weather wasn't perfect at the time for our staying.

Reef Club 305 offers a great three bedroom, two bath condo unit in building located on the beach. Heated pool, jacuzzi, tennis courts near restaurants in Clearwater, St. Petersburg and Tampa (Only 90 minutes to Orlando). Unit 305 was very clean, professionally (and locally) managed. Larger than most units in the building, this unit is also away from the road and elevator so noise wasn't a factor. Everything you could want in the way of kitchen supplies, towels, sheets, etc. Even had a King posture pedic bed and new Queen bed in second bedroom. TV in each bedroom, 46 inch HDTV in living room, cable, DVD, washer-dryer. Newly renovated. Great value!

The units here are individually owned and are very different from each other. Most have been fully renovated. The on-site amenities are great and the location and view cannot be beaten for the price.

I read bad reviews about this unit, but spoke with the owner and wanting to give the benefit of doubt. She assured me that she was CONSTANTLY updating, she told me that she just installed brand new carpeting last summer (6 months ago...) All were bold lies! We took this place because of the space - 3 bedrooms and not 1 but 2 pull out couches! (we had 8 people) The master bed was very uncomfortable mattress had to be at least 40 years old. Similar situations with the other beds...The pull out couches were not even usable. the frames were slightly bent, completely sagging in the middle and were so uncomfortable and hurt your back so much that the floor was actually used instead. The cupboards were grimey and the bathrooms very outdated as well. Her "brand new carpeting" - looked at least 10 years old and was stained. This unit has not been upkept and honestly we would have been more comfortable in a hotel. The kids enjoyed the swimming pool and hot tub. We didn't use the tennis courts. the views were nice, mot beautiful sunsets I have ever seen. The location was ok, quick from the air port and only 10 mins drive from Johns Pass and Pier 60. Would NOT rent here again, but would go closer to activities South to Madeira or North to Clearwater. Again not being picky - we are used to "camping" in tents and a camper, but when you are at this price, you expect better than camping conditions!

We have purchased and renovated this condo from top to bottom - on 10/10 of 2010. It was dated but now is gorgeous with a killer view directly to the gulf from the top floor. You can see more at reef club luxury dot com and it is also on VRBO, HomeAway and Vacation Rentals. Thank you, Rick and Charlotte.
