We stayed there for our second time over the New Year's weekend. The style is old FL in all of the good ways. We especially liked spending time outside in the garden, on the dock,and on the private beach. The pool was great and the kayaks let us explore further out. There were other guests but not so many that...

TripAdvisor members can refer to my review of the Lankford Hotel in Ocean City, Maryland. The Rock Reef has a similar ambiance and history, with us. Although it's been several years since we visited, largely due to their week-long-only booking poliicy during New Years, we nevertheless really enjoyed the laid-back nature of their thatch shelter and small beach (plus bar-b-cue)...

We spent a nigh on this hotel. The room was very clean. They let us use kayaks and a paddle boat at no charge. The pool was warm. My family had a very good time. The bed was too soft for me but it does not mean it wasn't good.

Thank you for staying at Rock Reef Resort. We are glad that you enjoyed our free water toys and hope you were able to see the manatees, and/or dolphins that have been spotted in the bay all week long. Everyone seems to be enjoying the heated pool during the winter, and the during the summer, it is cooled. We hope...

We celebrated our 50th Anniversary there. We stayed in cottage 9 and we had the best time ever. The cottage was so clean and neat. Linda and her staff were so very nice and helpful. The view was fantastic from the porch while sitting in the swing. The grounds are beautiful.Can't say enough good things about the Rock Reef Resort....

I went to Rock Reef with my parents so spend some time in the Keys. The view is AMAZING - we had breakfast by the beach every morning and we did see some dolphines. Very relaxed and great spot if you want to relax. Will for sure be back with or without my parents.

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.
