I love the ORC. But thats because Ive been going there since the 1990s. Its classic, tho it surely could use some modern updates. Service isnt quite out of that "Keys feel" yet. Nice enough and sort of speedy but nothing to write home about. Same for food - good but not outstanding. Accommodations are fine, especially for a fishing...

What a great private community. The hotel room was lovely, the grounds beautiful, the people all so nice and welcoming. The food at the restaurants was top notch from Giannis to the Pool Grill - all was really delicious. The drinks at the Harbor Bar made by Luke were top notch - awesome. The zero entry pool was just beautiful...

I didn't have the opportunity to stay here. I had a reservation booked for 2 rooms, under similar names. The reservation staff could never seem to find the second room so an additional reservation was made after 2 phone calls. Then, I had to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances, and as luck would have it within the 30 day cancel...

This is a private resort and we went for a business event for 6 days. Because there are residents and members and we were outsiders, we were treated like outsiders. It is a bit stuffy and tons of rules about dress codes etc......We were there during spring break and there were 100's of kids. It was not relaxing. We go...

I am writing this review mostly in response to a review I read earlier about this property. I am not sure what planet the lady was on who wrote the review. We had been members 20 years ago and had an opportunity to come back through a charity. Understand this is a PRIVATE CLUB with very limited access. We found...

This was my first time spending an entire 5 day vacation at The Ocean Reef Club, prior visits were as a child when my Grandparents were members and we would hang at the pool while family golfed or we would visit for special events. The property is pretty special, a friendly and welcoming community. It was a busy weekend while...

My husband and I stayed as guest (not members) at Ocean Reef Club for one night. I must say I was a bit intimidated about visiting this exclusive club/resort/community and anticipated the people to be snobby and unfriendly. I was wrong. Everyone we met or crossed paths with was friendly, inclusive and polite. The staff was genuinely courteous and friendly....

We stayed at ORC with family that are members (you have to be or know a member to stay here). The grounds are beautiful, pools are very nice and lots of areas to sit (pool chairs, cabanas, hammocks) and its spread out so you aren't on top of each other. ORC is a self contained town- everything you need is...

Beautiful grounds, impeccable service and outstanding food at the multiple restaurants. If you're a member, you love the place...and if you're invited to join a member...GO! The resort is easily accessible by car from Miami, but the best way to arrive is by flying private into the resort's own airport.

We held a meeting at this location. You cannot reserve a room unless you are sponsored. Beautiful location but sometimes hard to get what you need. Fishing Village is wonderful! I didn't have a lot of time to explore since it was a working weekend. If you are lucky enough to be on the property, you have to have the...
