Colony Reef Club
Reviewed April 19, 2011

I am reading some of the negative reviews and am surprised. I will admit that buildings are not the newest (and being right on the water does age things quickly). But other than that...we had a fantastic stay. Our unit was clean and well stocked. I went with another family and I got stuck in the tiny room, because I was the single one, but it didn't even bother me.
To wake up to that beautiful view was great....right on the ocean. Pool time at night was where the teens congregated (hot tub). We didn't rent a car since there was six of us...we rented bikes and just rode all over. Went one day into downtown, but we really just wanted a relaxing family time. It was so nice."

Room Tip: kids - first floor/ older - ocean view 3rd flr

When you walk in the front door of this 4th floor unit, the view takes your breath away. We couldn't get enough of it. And the 3 bedroom , 2 bath condo is furnished beautifully with a small balcony for relaxing and having drinks while listening to the sounds of the ocean. There is easy access to the beach and pool. Great restaurants nearby. We look forward to going there again.

Stayed here over New Years. The office staff there corrected a problem that had nothing to do with our rental and went out of there way to insure we were happy...even though it was New Years Eve. The view of the ocean from our 4th floor unti was awesome and the condos are well appointed and comfortable. great location convenient to verything. It was too cold to use the pool but it looked very large and clean. Easy access to the ocean though for nice walks. We plan to return and stay there again.

We were in a 3 bedroom/ 2bath unit with a great ocean view, balcony, kitchen, laundry, and 2 sets of patio doors. Parking was convenient. Elevators are like new. Tremendous 17(?) mile beach with turtles, dolphins, starfish, surfers, sailing, etc. Lots of stuff to do ...St Augustine, parks, pool, golf, restaurants on the water, outlet malls nearby.

Great value for the price.

Got there and was pleasantly surprised that the landscaping was so lovely, office staff was very accommodating and friendly. The unit was well furnished and had just been renovated, it was very comfortable. The pool area was clean and well cared for. I liked the idea that there was a no alcoholic beverage rule around the grounds. It is a family atmosphere, and a great place to visit. I would go back without hesitation.

My first review no doubt got disregarded so here I go again.....stay a at condo 15C at Colony Reef resort at St Augustine Beach. The security guards was bullying the children at the swimming pool constantly. When we ask about the distance to the beach we were not told the truth before renting this condo, the pretty back balcony viewing was not truthful, yes it had a little water hole but stunk unreal like dry sewage, the condo itself was average. Please be aware the beach has vehicles roaming up and down and I stay with fear of my grandchildren playing on that beach and could not relax because of this. One time they brough a tractor/bull dozer down their driving it fast and zipping in and out. A true nightmare vacation........Sincerely SR Nelson, Wildwood GA

The elevator was out upon our arrival on sunday, was told it would be repaired on monday....was told on monday it would be tuesday, then wed., then a manager would not return my calls. we had to use the stairs the entire week, oh did i mention we had our elderly parents and a toddler with us and we were on the fourth floor. the worst part was being ignored by the management . This was our second year staying here and it will be our last.
