The Reef is an older well maintained resort. The unit was a good size for 2 of us. Fully stocked kitchen, small bathrooms, good size bedrooms and lots of closet space. We were told the bed was 6 months old, however it was uncomfortable & sagged in the middle. It was a fisherman’s dream with lots of dock space and an area dedicated to clean the fish. We really do hope to return again soon. We are members with RCI and as usual we had an issue with check in. RCI did not update the required check in info so the resort did not have our reservation. After a few phone calls and someone at RCI ‘checking with their supervisor’ and faxing over the reservation we were checked in. Not acceptable RCI - we paid for a service and after hours of travel expected better.

I loved this place. It is a beautiful property with a marina, pool, kayak and canoes all included at no charge. The home are unique, although not luxurious that are good enough for a fun week on the water. I rented a boat for the week and keep it right at the marina. Easy access to 7 mile bridge and only 1 hour from Key West to enjoy some nightlife.

Overall a very pleasant place to stay if you're not looking for night life or excitement. The property is well maintained and there's a nice view of the bay from the dock. .Facilities like bikes, swimming pool, canoes, etc are available. Be prepared for occasional very low flying aircraft going into the Marathon airport

Nice location and clean, spacious accommodations. Having a full, well equipped kitchen was welcome. Check in was easy, even though it was done on a Sunday- the staff is very responsive. We had a full agenda so unfortunately only used the pool once (very clean and nice) and did not get to bike/kayak. Grounds are beautiful and well-kept. Overall very relaxing.
The beds are uncomfortably hard; we moved to the twin beds the second night since neither of us could sleep on the queen bed, but they were only marginally better.
There is a hair dryer in the bathroom and coffee/filters are provided for one pot. No seasonings in kitchen whatsoever and although we get why, salt/pepper probably safe to have on site. We were unsure of what exactly the amenities were and some of the rules- have added photos of the on-site directory.
Check out easy also. Most certainly would stay again but longer.

Room tip: Note that not all the units have ocean view; none of the units are accessible (no elevators)

The Reef is a wonderfully, funky little gem. The villas are spacious and clean....especially the bathrooms. Is there nothing more satisfying than a clean bathroom?
The grounds are beautifully kept and the staff are kind and helpful.
We can't wait to get back...soon!
