A great place to spend a relaxing week. It is a 2 story complex with 6 buildings. The 100 and 500 buildings face the beach. Others face the pool.Our unit is in the 100 building facing the beach. The three attached pictures include the view from our room toward the ocean, the view from our patio down the beach, and...

The apartments sit on the ocean sand, they are very clean but small, each one has a view of the pool and the ocean from your balcony (2 stories high) The people, staff and guests, are very outgoing and friendly, you feel like you are among friend's. This is a time share but apartments can be rented out. I would...

Did lots of research and booked well in advance of March Break. The value was what struck me the most about the place. I was located in the front facing Ocean Drive, but it was not noisy at all. Bobby's restaurant was directly below me but it wasn't a problem, parking was a bit awkward at dinner time but by...

If you look at the previous review it is totally accurate! Modest units with everything you need. We stayed in a studio and loved sitting out in the chairs on the common balcony with a nice breeze. The wall is high so when you are sitting you see the other units but mostly the tops of palm trees. Beach is...

This place is great. When we pulled up I was not sure what to expect because it is not a big fancy hotel. We were pleasantly surprised that this place is beyond clean inside the rooms. We stayed in a studio which is along the road. Some rooms looked out at the pool and you can see palm trees and...

These are beautiful apartments, facing onto the beach, exceptionally large bedrooms and beds, lots of wardrobe space, a lovely bright seating area, and a cosy sitting area in the evening, they have TVs, lovely bathrooms, tiled floors and a small balcony

These are small units, but we weren't in Florida to stay inside. There's a bedroom, a bathroom, with a sink outside, a kitchenette and a living room with a sleeper sofa. Our balcony overlooked the ocean. The resort has a pool and is steps from the beach. We arrived shortly after the hurricane in early October. The beach had some...

We took some time to visit the Reef Ocean Resort & were pleasantly surprised upon checking into our room for a week. Located on 2nd floor facing the ocean & was just refurbished. New flooring thru out, new central ac & fresh linens & decorations. When checking in we were pleasantly greeted by a young man & assured us our...

We used an Interval International exchange for one bedroom apartment. The apartment was quite small but well furnished with a lovely patio overlooking the pool and ocean. Just opening the curtains in a morning was great for watching the sunrise. We really liked the friendly feeling of the resort and all the staff were very nice. We had a fully...

An older resort. Not the Ritz, but everything you would need, including free WiFi. Perfect oceanfront location with excellent restaurant inside. Small pool. Close to other restaurants and shopping. Best part is endless beach right outside your patio. Enjoyed our stay.
