My husband and I stumbled across the Reef Ocean Resort for the last few days of our vacation and we are so very happy we did. We were only looking for a 2 night stay, planning our final night in Miami before our flight home to the UK …. BUT, the Reef was so perfect for us that we stayed...

Staff nice and most how been employed long time. Rooms and grounds well maintained. On location a good restaurant. Even though a time share, no pressure to buy. Only complaint was staff had us change room for one night. It seemed the reason was convenience of staff. The unit could be cleaned on Friday for a Saturday arrival. Parking limited...

Stayed here as a kid 45 yrs ago and once again it did not disappoint! Staff is amazing and location is perfect. Quiet, clean, and on the beach- had a wonderful time staying here. Bobby's restaurant is on site with a great menu and a full house everynight.

Our unit was in front which was not great as far as noise but was made better by the fact that the people who work here go out of their way to make one feel welcomed. There is...

Many places in Florida are "oceanfront", but involve a shuttle bus, boat, or long hike to actually get to the ocean. Vero is magical in its instant proximity. If you stay at the Reef in a unit in the 100-series or 500-series, here's your day: open door; walk 20 yards; you are in the ocean. If you stay in the...
