My family has been coming here for 20 years. I’ll continue to stay! Amazing staff and lots of activities. Rooms are always clean, The room rates are always just right. They are now renovating tower #2 and i cant wait to see the results. We found a gem for our family and now we bring our children and grandchildren.

Me and my wife stayed here while celebrating our 10 years of begin together. We arrived at 4:00 on Friday and checked in the check in was easy especially if you pre register. We where in our room by 4:15. We were on the 11th floor in the corner unit and there was no one in the room beside us. The room was clean and updated. The view was amazing and we loved the whirlpool bath. The restaurant was great and had amazing food. We ate there Friday night and Saturday night. We will definitely be back to stay.

Been staying with crown reef for more than 15 + years because it provides a great place for small children to play. The room attendant staff was great. The room are a little dated. There are a lot nicer place to stay at MB but none that provide so much fun for kids. I visit the beach 4 times a year and only stay at CR once. Over all a great family vacation. The only bad experience was with one of the assistant managers name Stephanie with absolutely no people skills and should not be allowed to handle any customer resolutions. She evidently feels like guest are not worth listening to or that the customer is trying to get something for free. I paid for an upgrade room but the requested accommodations weren't available so she felt like since I settled for a room of lesser value that I should still pay the price of an upgrade room. Thanks to manager Christy for listening , having people skills and taking care of the customers.

I just want say how my experience is going traveling 10 hours away for a vacation that’s suppose to be relaxing and fun . So far it has been miserable for us !!! We booked 4 months in advanced so our rate was slightly lower then booking last minute obviously and we got the crappiest room for a preferred king efficiency room with an OCEANFRONT view . We are on the lobby level and they placed us all the way on the end and our view is the slides and the next hotels pool with a bunch of palm trees . ( splash zone area) So glad we paid extra for a preferred room ! Not to mention maintenance doesn’t stop working downstairs till 10 pm !! So we have to hear banging of hammers and drilling for a couple hours at night while trying to sleep . We have a 1 year old child that sleeps at the time and gets woken up every time . This is our 3 rd day now and got ZERO sleep due to the noise. We have complained to front desk 3 times about this and ask if we can just switch a room , that’s all we ask . We keep getting told they can’t do anything for us and that they are booked solid . But yet , checking in a lady complained as well about her room and was offered another room on the 11th floor but she said that was too high so they gave her the 4th floor . So why can’t we move ? Is it because we have a child with us ? If so , that’s discrimination!!! When we checked in , we were told we have no other rooms available but the lobby floor . How is that fair ? We booked way in advance !!! Why are we getting the last resort room !?we arrived 4 hours early as well when checking in , their was WAY more time to figure this crap out ! The resort is great but our room sucks ! Their website shows the rooms with great oceanfront views , I don’t see it in ours . If we knew this was going to be our room for the week that we are staying before hand I would’ve never booked this hotel .

Family vacay was a blast. After figuring out how to get from one building to next, all was worth the price. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. There were many others around but didn't feel like it.

My family had a Great vacation... with some shopping and movies included:). Till next time!!! #JohnsonGilliam2021
