We stayed here for 3 nights and it was amazing. Location is close to John Pennecamp and good restaurants. The best part is the customer service and house keeping. The ladies at front desk were very friendly amd attentive. House keeping was just perfect. The premises were well maintained. We were welcomed by colorful iguanas, several of them. Although they...

Friendly, room and the grounds are nicely kept. Rooms could use an updating. Need to relax the rules, can't use the pool, kayaks or paddle boat early or late. Some people are earlier risers and like to take a dip or kayak.

Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write a review. We continue to do upgrades at Rock Reef throughout the year and we will continue to do so.

We stayed for a weekend. There are a ton of really nice things about this hotel. The staff was very friendly. The rooms were very clean. We had a "deluxe" room with 2 double beds.

We returned to Rock Reef for a fantastic 4 days on September 11- 14. They have a wonderful new pool that is kept at 86 degrees. It is so great. I know that some people think a pool just 250 feet from the ocean a waste- but not from my point of view. We loved it.

Vintage property - rooms, pool and grounds are spotless, very well maintained. Everyone we met from owner to staff members were delightful. We'd return in a heartbeat! Had the pleasure of seeing dolphins and manatees in the cove adjacent to the beach area. Good restaurants, bird sanctuary and state park nearby.
