“Superb location”
Reviewed September 28, 2007

We found this property by chance and were delighted by the location, and the accommodation.

We had the largest room with the largest bed we have ever stayed in! I swear we needed our passports to cross over into the other side of the bed.

The sunsets from the dock were captivating and to watch them from the hammocks was wonderful.

During our stay on Key Largo we dived with Silent World dive centre and found them to be very accommodating, friendly and professional.

I called the Rock Reef directly.

Our family totally enjoyed our stay at the Rock Reef. This was the second time we used this facility.

Initially, I booked here because they offered boat slips. However, we found the accommodations to be excellent. There was a very "homey" feel as we felt like we were staying in an aprartment. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The dock was very tranquil as I sat under the tiki hut watching the sunset. The overall feel was very "layed-back". My boys enjoyed throwing their fishing lines off the dock while wating for the burgers to finishing cooking on the outdoor grills. It was alot of fun to cook out one night. The other night we ate out. We didn't have to travel far to find a good, reasonable restaurant (which was great as we were exhausted from an entire day on the water!).

As pleased as we were with the resort, we were just as pleased with the staff. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. We had some "special" circumstances as we were booking our date to stay. The dates kept changing for us as we were working around my husband (who recently had surgery) and my teenagers sports schedules I must have changed the reservations 3 times as my husband was not recuperationg as quickly as we anticipated . The office staff was so kind and professional as they worked with me until we finally found a weekend we could enjoy as a family. We were very grateful for their patience and understanding. In addition, we had a very LATE check-in time. (1:30 a.m.!) and this was not an inconvience for them.

With the busy schedule of our jobs, the boys school and sports, and my husbands recuperation, it wasn't easy finding a weekend to get away. We did, and we had an incredible time together. Nothing fancy, but just a quality weekend of time spent together.

If your looking for a nice place to stay with COMPETATIVE prices, kind staff and beautiful views, then the Rock Reef is the place to say.

Sincerely,

Janet

We had a great stay at Rock Reef Resort. From the time we called them and booked our stay to the time that we checked out. The staff was very nice, the rooms were clean and the property was well maintained.

Unfortunately, we had to deal with mosquitos, but that was not their fault.

Thanks for a great vacation.

It was wonderful. There was plenty of room for the kids to play. The grounds were beautiful and the staff was very helpful.

Cannot wait to return!

We didn't get to use the "resort" because there are so many other things to do in the Keys. Our room was very nice, clean and comfortable. The office staff was very friendly and helpful. We will stay here again in the future and hopefully have more time to just hang out and enjoy the resort.

We checked in after a long day after flying into Fort Lauderdale and exploring the Everglades...what a welcomed oasis! The lodging was outstanding, the bougainvilla beautiful, and the sunset was awesome! After a wonderful dinner nearby, the king bed was wonderful! The resort is very quiet and we really enjoyed the hammock hanging near the tiki and water - a great way to enjoy our first Keys sunset...thank you Rock Reef!
