This was my first time staying at Rock Reef Resort and I already can't wait to go back. Beautiful property.... There is a bonsai garnden, hammocks scattered around to relax in and you are right on the water. We used the free kayaks on site and took a dip in the pool which was the perfect temp. I had brought...

My wife and I visited the resort to celebrate our 20th anniversary and catch up with old friends. I have been staying at Rock Reef for over 25 years, both for business and pleasure, and enjoy every visit. The location is excellent, great sunset views, convenient to the numerous restaurants of the Upper Keys, and grounds are tastefully maintained. This...

My family has been going to the Rock Reef Resort every year for more than 20 years. It has scenic views, comfortable rooms with TV, and air conditioning, a pool, beach, private lagoon, and boat dock. The staff is friendly and helpful. Our family loves it so much we'd never want to go anywhere else in Florida.

Friendly stuff, great location good facilities. I was happily surprised from the size of the room (no. 22) but very unhappy from the small bathroom that was not the cleanest. Very soon they will need to renovate to stay in the game. In General i was happy.

Nissim, thank you for taking the time to write your review and for staying with us. We are sorry that you found our bathroom small, which was remodeled a few years ago. The footprint of the bathroom was set many years before we purchases the resort, and makes it harder to increase at this time. I have checked our record...

We had a very comfortable 2 night stay here, clean, quiet large rooms. Very peaceful waterside setting. My only complaint was there was no food or drinks sold on site, no where to buy breakfast without driving. We ended up buying some cereal bars and fruit in the garage across the road.

We are happy that you enjoyed our peaceful waterside setting. It is so beautiful and relaxing that most could sit there for hours. The Tiki hut keeps the sun off and about 10 degrees cooler while you enjoy the warm temps and the cool breeze. Tom Thumb is across the road, which has a Subway that will serve some breakfast...

This was a very clean, quiet, quaint, hotel with lots to offer. There is a private beach, jetty where one can watch the sunset, picnic area, beautiful grounds, pool, etc. Our room was clean and nicely decorated with a full kitchen. (We didn't use the kitchen) It is more "homespun" than staying in the big hotel chains, but I consider...

We stayed here on a stop over to Key West, but our next visit to the Keys we will spend entirely at Rock Reef. It has the rustic charm I will always take over corporate slickness, a fantastic location on the Gulf (great sunsets), and the lady who checked us in was delightful. Also, just across the road from Ballyhoo's,...

I was so disappointed in the room I got here. It was small, it smelled and was really old. The air conditioner was old and so loud I had to shut it off. The grounds were nice and clean, the pool was nice. I would not stay there again

My husband and I recently stayed at Rock Reef Resort. It was like revisiting a little slice of my history, the days in my youth when my family would vacation on the keys. Rock Reef is a typical Florida Keys motel. (If you want a hotel, look elsewhere.) But this one has been refreshed and kept up. The room while...
