Many places in Florida are "oceanfront", but involve a shuttle bus, boat, or long hike to actually get to the ocean. Vero is magical in its instant proximity. If you stay at the Reef in a unit in the 100-series or 500-series, here's your day: open door; walk 20 yards; you are in the ocean. If you stay in the... More

We arrived early around 2 and they put us right into our room. The Staff is great and the resort is VERY clean and well kept. The pool and hot tub area are very nice.

Our room was at the front of the property, but we were still so close to the pool and ocean. There... More

We had a one bedroom apartment in exchange of our timeshare. It was small but enough for the couple of us. I wonder how bigger families would stay. It has a nice view on the ocean. It is located nearby different restaurants. The beach is big and nice in spite of the cold water of the Atlantic Ocean. We saw... More

We go to the Reef Ocean every single year. Rooms are great, people are friendly and you simply cannot get any closer to the water. It is great to wake up and hear the waves!!!! My favorite South Florida destination!

I stayed with my wife and 2 kids, in unit 202 ( I think it was) Ocean front.. we couldn't have been closer to the Ocean. It was just perfect. It isn't the fanciest place on earth but I loved it. We watched sunrise on Sunday morning, and enjoyed the beach to the fullest. I will go back.
