We stayed at Sterling Reef the week of July 4th. It was a very nice resort, great pool, great location, great beach and great decor. Our condo was top notch, and had everything we needed. The big balconies are great too. We rented thru the owner on VRBO, and he was very easy to deal with. The staff was always very nice and helpful too. They even have free DVD rental, which was really nice on a rainy night! My only complaints were the elevators, they only had two (not air conditioned) and sometimes you had to wait about 10-15 minutes for these (it did get better at the end of the week, when it was not as busy). And check-in does not start until 3 pm, and is not absolutely guaranteed until 6 pm. Our unit was ready about 3:15, but I still think thats a little late. We saw 2 families really get ugly because their room was not ready, but if you know that ahead of time, you have no reason to complain. Also, I did not see any kind of places to eat down by the pool. Most places have somekind of grill that sells burgers, sandwiches, etc., that would have been nice.
Overall, we had a great time at Sterling Reef and will definately be back!
