We have stayed here many years and we absolutely love it!!! The grounds are amazing, so much to do you never have to leave. All sorts of shopping near by and Key West is only about an hour away! Not fancy, just great!

This is our 3rd year staying at The Reef and we love it. Quiet and relaxing, yet close to restaurants, shops, and attractions when you want just a little bit more. Ours is a family vacation and the "home away from home" atmosphere suits our needs perfectly. The villas are older but clean and comfortable. Each unit has a kitchen,...

The grounds are very well kept. A minor maintenance issue was handled very quickly. The bathrooms are indeed small, and the internet needs to have a stronger signal. Overall, the staff was great and I look forward to returning again soon.

If you're use to fancy hotels....this probably isn't the place for you. If you're looking for a place that makes you feel a part of the keys...this is it. I exchanged my timeshare for a two bedroom here. All of the two bedrooms are "tree house" style so you better like steps. Units are decorated well and came with washer...

Took one of our lets get out of Miami for a day trip during peak season and online couldn't find anything. Drive down anyway and found this timeshare style but they rent it daily also spot. Rooms are elevated in a circular type house. Views of the ocean are from anywhere. Best part is they have kayaks and non motorized...

I'll admit, it's our first day, but so far we are loving it! Shelly, in the office, has been such a help and joy to talk with from reservation to arrival. Our room overlooks the pool and marina. It is clean and spacious. The kids are already enjoying the amenities. Heated pool, shuffle board, basketball, etc. tomorrow it will be...

This is a jewel in Marathon. I have all the amenities and a marina. The people are fun and like to have a good time fishing and playing. Lots of things to do in this area, site seeing and great places to eat. Fishing and snorkeling just under the 7 mile bridge. The condos are roomy and are well maintained....

The Reef Resort timeshare has been in my family for over 20 years. For the last 4 years, we've been the owners. It's has the perfect location in Marathon: close enough to Sombrero Beach/Kmart/Publix but far enough away that when you are out kayaking on the Gulf side, you feel miles away from civilization. There have been numerous changes/upgrades to...

We stayed there during the first week of lobster season and had a wonderful experience. The property is very well maintained. The staff and other visitors were very friendly. The unit was very nice but the furniture needed to be updated, but everything was comfortable.

I loved loved loved this place. For the price, there is no better place around in my mind. We parked our boat there all week in our own slip. To have your own condo tower with laundry, kitchen, and 2 bedrooms with a great view of the water- is priceless. Staff on grounds is VERY friendly and will do whatever...
