The place was absolutely disgusting.Lounges looked like they were picked up from the council cleanup.Brickwork falling apart on rear deck which had not been cleaned for years. Plants were growing in the corners of the tiled deck. Kitchen Cupboards and bathroom vanities were filthy and water damaged. Bedding old and barnered. Oven & grill unusable crockery and cutlery old chipped an unusable. Were meant to stay a week and moved out at 7.15am.
A disgusting rip off which should not be licensed to accommodate anyone. An embarrising slum to the northern beaches.

Room Tip: choose a different venue

Absolutely disgraceful. The health department should be notified. Furniture old and dirty, bed linen and towels stained and suitable for rags, cupboards dirty, plates and cookware a joke. Appliances from the 80's. We couldn't see out windows for grime. Carpets worn. Seems Nana who owns all 50+ units wont spend a cent on them. We had to clean the shower ourselves with disinfectant and bleach before using. Put bedspreads on sofas they were so gross. We saw two units and both were as bad as each other. If there is a decent one it was well hidden. Ruined our holiday as it was difficult to find alternate unit at late notice.

Stayed at Reef Resort over Easter with my wife and two girls had the best time. Stayed in a top floor apartment with ocean and park views.

Great location for the kids pool,playground nearby tennis court games room best of all was the beer at the end of the day on the balcony looking out to the beach.

The apartment is massive with all you need for a getaway cafés nearby were fantastic also mona vale shops are within walking distance from the resort.

Loved the beach as it is directly across from the apartments with easy assess We'd stay again!!

Absolutely awful place!
Disgusting apartments and cockroaches in the beds etc.
Whole place was awful.
Most of our party moved out to local hotels. Wouldnt be so bad if it was cheap but it simply isn't.
Go and book into a backpackers will be cheaper and cleaner.

Room Tip: Do not stay here!

If you choose to stay here ...bring your own bed and bedding and don't plan to cook or eat off the dinner plates. I agree with Bigfella10_12 and Dell 20 100%.The place really needs to be bulldozed and the owner was less than impressed with our constructive criticisms. He even stated that he doesn't want holiday apartments...just permanent tenants so we are not really welcome anyway. We are seriously considering reporting them to" whoever"....health or tourism authority. The 2% surcharge for credit card payment of nearly $2000 is OTT too! Don't do it. Go somewhere else! The mattress protector begs belief.
This should be called the "Last Resort" not the Reef Resort. There are no resort features based on today's standards.
