Rock Reef Resort
Ranked #2 of 17 Key Largo B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 15, 2013

We were exploring Key Largo and visited Rock Reef while heading down the Keys in search of wedding venues. The resort has a old Florida feel without feeling "dated". It is across a beautiful waterway from Everglades National Park, so the night sky is SPECTACULAR. We sat under the Milky Way, with shooting stars above us and bioluminescent organisms lighting up every ripple in the water below! It was magical. When we first arrived, the owner Linda was hard at work with the upkeep of the beautiful and unique property, and took over two hours of her time, even though she was exhausted, to show us around, discuss activities and amenities , talk wildlife/fishing and let us view different rooms. Prices are completely reasonable. The property is very clean/comfortable, the beach was clean and the owners are WONDERFUL. We decided to have our wedding much further south but this resort was a close second choice. We will stay here any time we are in Key Largo and highly recommend you do too!

This is a great place with a fantastic view of the ocean! Take one of the bungalows and you won't regret it! You can go fishing, see dolphins if you are lucky or just enjoy the most spectacular sunset in the world!
We stayed in Key West and Marathon before, but we loved this hotel in Key Largo!

Room Tip: Bungalows are the best choice!

This was our third trip to Rock Reef and we've always had a wonderful time. It's not a high rise motel. It's unique in that it allows you to experience the true Keys laidback atmosphere. The landscaping is lush allowing for privacy between cabins. Wildlife abounds. The hammocks and tiki huts almost force you to relax. The apartment we stayed in was large and clean with a well equipped kitchen. The staff, and especially our hosts, Dave and Linda, went out of their way to insure we had an exceptional stay. Rock Reef has a sandy beach and the best sunsets in the Keys. Kayaks and a paddle boat were available at no extra cost.

Great place & wonderful owners. My girlfriend & I were made to feel right at home. There was beautiful landscaping. Several areas to sit & relax & lay in the sun. Enjoyed the peace & quite. We were really impressed with the resort, very tropical. Rooms were clean & well furnished. They have different living quarters for any type of stay, from large cabins to a single room. Seeing is believing. Words can not describe how wonderful this place & it's owners are. We will certainly visit here again.

Room Tip: Always check rooms out on their sight.

Great family place to relax by the water, swim, kayak, watch the sunsets. Close to area attractions. What topped the trip of at this resort was all the interesting wildlife. Friendly easy in/out from RT 1. If you have a powerboat they do have a launch.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms we saw were acceptable. They did have options for small bungalows down closer to th...
