We had an excellent time here! The people are friendly and helpful. The showers were hot and the room was cold after long days on the beautiful private beach connected to the property. We didn't use the pool but it also looked excellent. The rooms were a little outdated but everything was super comfortable. I would definitely visit again.

This place is clean (that is why it got 3 stars). The pool is small, the hottub is the size of a thimble (don't plan to use it, 3 people max). If you are a hotel person, this place is old and showing it's age, if you are thinking of trading you time share don't. The staff is not very...

We lucked out when we booked this place. I didn't realize it is right next to the Vero Beach Resort and Spa, which charges more than twice as much. These are condos rented by the owners. Spring for the ocean side units and you won't be disappointed. However, bring your own beach chairs and umbrellas because there is no concierge....

We come to the Reef Ocean every year for a week and love it. You cannot get closer to the beach! The staff is always welcoming and wonderful to us...everyone from the front office to the housekeeping and maintenance are all good folks. My only two complaints would be the parking is waaay too tight(I'd love to drive my truck...

My wife and I booked this resort for the second week in July. We have stayed in some nice resorts through our Starwood timeshare. We rolled over a week and used it outside of the usual Starwood group. Big mistake. While the staff have been really nice and the place seems pretty clean, it is like taking a trip back...

Lynette should not have a job for the embarrassment she put us through. This is really only a resort for "owners". There was a sweet young lady at the desk that made everything better for Lynettes actions. Lynette, the older women at the desk, was very rude the first morning we met her. We asked for a recommendation for breakfast...

My husband's family has had a timeshare here since the beginning, and now we do as well. Units are most comfortable for couples, but the efficiencies and one-bedroom units have pullout sofas that work for the kids. Before we had kids, we also stayed once in one of the studio units above the restaurant, which had a nice layout but...

Really loved the room here and the ease of access from the pool to the ocean. Very kid friendly and comfortable rooms. We used the grills quite frequently and brought our own food to cook for the week using the fully equipped kitchen. Plates, silverware, glasses... everything was there! If you have Netflix, bring your laptop for nightly entertainment as...

3rd year here for our mommy and son timeshare vacation. Laid back living to unwind and spend some quality family time together. Steps from the beach, pool, playground, non-motorized motorsports, restaurants and more.

The location just can’t be beat. It is a clean, well maintained, low rise (two story) facility directly on a beautiful stretch of soft sand beach. Ground floor units have a walk-out to the ocean or pool and 2nd floor units have a comfortable balcony with a pleasant ocean view. The soft sand impediment-free ocean bottom is great for swimming...
