Just stayed here from Dec 2-8th, 2012. Here is what my husband and I discovered:
1. You CANNOT swim at the beach at the Reef - Reef and shells, sharp rocks that we were unaware of and found out the hard way; cuts on our feet! Just a short walk away, you can swim and surf at the beach in front of the Moana Surfrider.....I would recommend the water shoes for kids no matter where you swim.
2. Mai Tai special at the Shorebird is great from 12-5 and their mahi fish and chips is amazing - use the coupons they give you. They also have a good breakfast buffet and the restaurant right next door is lovely as well.
3. The saltwater pool is fabulous, but you do have to pay to rent chairs on the beach..not cheap.
4. Yard House just down the street has the best beer selection, especially if you want a dark beer.
5. Doraku sushi is amazing (above Kate Spade)...
6. The live music at night is really great and can be enjoyed from the majority of the balconies or by the pool at night...great.
7. The Oro Gold ladies in the lobby/hotel will hard sell you and draw you in with their samples....stay away. The salesgirl told me that she could only give me a special offer that day because she would be gone the rest of the week and we saw her there the next day....ugh.
8. The time share people weren't that bad, no big deal.
9. Reseach your trip because the concierge & Activities Desk weren't the most helpful...better to ask the waiters/waitresses about the island.
10. The ABC stores are great, but the Coco Cove stores are great and have very different things to offer....
Above all, clean rooms, very quiet and very friendly staff.
