We wanted to make an overnight stop before Key West. We made a last minute booking based on the cheapest place we could get. We were wonderfully surprised at this great place. The front desk suggested Snoopy's for supper, which made for another fabulous find. We shall return.

If you are looking for a quaint, clean, small & reasonably-priced old-style resort in Key Largo... without all of the bells and whistles of a large chain, THIS IS THE PLACE. Family owned and operated, the owners even have their home situated within the confines of the resort. We picked Rock Reef based upon others' TripAdvisor reviews, and I am...

If you're expecting a 5 star hotel look elsewhere but if you're looking for a decent little mom and pop on the water then this might be the place for you. We spent 3 nights here and we loved the property itself. Lots of charm and a great location close to many attractions. The room was clean but small however...

Everyone was very nice and the location/view is wonderful. The room we had was in major need of updating, and that is an understatement. The room made me uncomfortable. I expected to see bugs but I did not. Regardless, my expectation kept me awake for a good part of the night. It just does not feel clean because it is...

Everyone we dealt with at Rock Reef Resort was super nice and helpful. We got there early and did not expect our room to be ready but it was. We loved the location, especially being able to walk across the street to Ballyhoo's Restaurant for dinner. The little beach was great and had plenty of lounge chairs and hammocks. We...

The resort was absolutely gorgeous, the staff amazingly helpful. Free use of kayaks to paddle around was really awesome. We never even used the pool because the resort was right on the water, we could snorkel, swim, and kayak, right from the resort. The rooms are very nicely decorated and clean. The kitchen had everything you needed. I would definitely...

Thank you for your gracious review and staying here at Rock Reef. We are glad that you enjoyed the kayaks to explore Florida Bay with. It is so much fun to go out to see the manatees and a dolphin or two or just relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. We hope to see you again!

The property is nice and there are kayaks and hammocks to use. The dock had great sunsets. However, for the nights we were there the sunsets were partially ruined by smokers. The room was clean but small and very dated. The beds were not comfortable. The bathroom was as small as a closet and the fan was filthy. Hot water...
