Standard suites, all outfitted the same. Beautiful saltwater pools, small one is heated. Great staff in bldg 2, floor 3 but make sure you don't take 305 by the elevator. Outlets are loose for electronics, kitchens are sparsely furnished. Steps from busy beach with no designated lounges. Beds are hard, pillows are deplorable. Thank goodness for the sun!

Don't come now, even though the beach is beautiful the renovations are a nightmare.. Elevator doesn't work.. Good luck with getting to 6th floor.. I am sure they will get it fixed but the stress of the painters and noise just isn't worth it. Our stress free vacation has been anything but... Plenty of other places on the same beautiful...

Enjoyed our stay at this resort. The pool section was very eye appealing and comfortable. There are no words to say how wonderful the beach was. Our unit was a little outdated but comfortable. The staff was helpful in every way. Our only problem was the renevations they we're doing during our stay. We know these things have to be...

We stayed at the Coral Reef as an RCI exchange. The pool area is beautiful! The bedding in our room appeared to be new. They are in the process of renovation so there are things that need upgraded. Some of the furniture could be replaced. Though I am sure that is on the to do list. The tile and counter...

We stayed at the Coral Reef for a week in November as part of an RCI exchange. Our unit was on the third floor with an ocean view to watch all the beach activities and the beautifil sunsets. Our unit was clean and neat and our only complaints were the AC was noisy and the dishwasher is long in the...

We were supposed to fly to Melbourne Fla and stay a week at our resort in Cocoa Beach Oct 8-15th but hurricane Matthew arrived Friday the 7th. While the area dodged a bullet for the most part we had to make a difficult decision to not go on vacation at all, or pay a hefty price to stay somewhere else....

Our first time here booked through Interval and at short notice only had a choice of three resorts in Florida for the week we were here. This resort seemed to tick all the boxes but: These are the negatives : The accommodation is very dated and in dire need of a facelift. I believe it is in the process of...

This was our first time. We were on the 6th floor facing the Gulf, what a view. The room was very nice and furnished well. The pool and landscaping are very nice. They have two pools and hot tubs, although we didn't use the hot tub, it was in the mid 80's. A few items that didn't sit well with...

Had room 105. Ceiling fan in living room ticked and the elevator was on the other side of the headboard so we heard that loud and clear. The worst night was Saturday. Thought it would never stop. Had to buy pillows at Walmart due to the pillows being about 10 years old. Flat as can be. Pool was cold. Room...

We did an RCI point switch to this resort. It is significantly cheaper than the resort where we own, so the cost to us was minimal. We have traveled the world and stayed in many places, so we know what to expect based on the point value of a particular resort. This resort is well worth the points cost. Keep...
