We received a complete new oak dining room set during our stay. Tropical decor looks and feels great. The Villas were clean and had all the modern conveniences. The...

This place has it all from, complimentary kayaking, canoeing, paddle boating, ping pong, shuffle board, tennis, to an amazing pool overlooking the gulf of mexico. Pull your boat up to your front door, grill up your catch and watch the sunset over the Gulf. Say hello to the manatee as they swim along the dock checking things out. Some of...

This resort has a lot of free amenities for guest use, including kayaks, paddle boats, nice pool and a pavilion. Another nice feature is they have wet dockage for boats at a max of 20 foot long and 10 foot wide. The resort is centrally located and the grounds were well maintained. The clean, single, raised house units are okay...

We had a wonderful time. We own two other weeks there and decided to check out the Dolphin fishing this year. We had a Blast. There have been so many positive changes and upgrades made during the last couple of years. We love it everytime we stay there!

This is our 3rd year staying at The Reef and we love it. Quiet and relaxing, yet close to restaurants, shops, and attractions when you want just a little bit more. Ours is a family vacation and the "home away from home" atmosphere suits our needs perfectly. The villas are older but clean and comfortable. Each unit has a kitchen,...
