We had a great stay at this nice hotel, where everything was taken care for. We loved the beach and there was plenty of variation in the food, also thete were nice afternoon snacks.
Only the bed could be better and the bathroom requires some maintenance.

Dear Thijs D,

Thank you for letting us know about your wonderful experience at our hotel. We must say we cannot express enough our satisfaction about the positive experience and sensational time you mention to have spent in our property.

We are pleased to know that you enjoyed our delicious food. Indeed, we make every effort to provide a wide choice of dishes by offering an assortment of restaurants, a la Carte Italian and Mexican as well as the buffet.

We greatly appreciate your comments about aspects of the room that need updating. It is a pleasure to announce that we will be implementing many of these upgrades to the property within the next couple of months and that five villas had already been remodeled. In taking great care of our charming hotel, our main priority is to be able to offer a very well-maintained and comfortable atmosphere.

We hope to welcome you back to our hotel. Please send us an e-mail to adireccion@thereefresorts.com as we have a special rate and benefits for repeat guests.

Kind regards,

Micaela Castilla

My husband & I stayed first at the Reef Coco Beach from Dec. 19, - Dec. 29,2018 followed by a further stay at the Reef Playacar. Dec. 29 - Jan 09,2018. So the entire stay was for 3 weeks.
Both resorts offered the same excellent services from good rooms (premium), wonderful beaches, nightly entertainment and reasonable food. This was our 4th stay at the Reef Playacar and I believe the smelly gas fumes from the garden area has been somewhat eliminated. We feel at home at these resorts having stayed before. The staff is always friendly and helpful.

I must admit the place is pretty neat, with low rise buildings, nice vegetation and excellent clean private beach. Pretty expensive though for the extras included in the package. And wifi not even included! Cost $7 USD a day. Hard to understand in 2018.

Dear Matthieu D,

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your review and for giving us the opportunity to welcome you the past days.

We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed our lush gardens! The nature surrounding the property is a favorite of ours as well.

Regarding your comment about the wi-fi we would like to mention that, as we have accesible rates, we thought it would be important to always give our guests different package options for them to choose from depending on what they consider it is better. We have three different packages: Standard package, Superior package and Premium package. Please note that the Premium package offers the most amenities and benefits such as the wi-fi. All the other Packages will have a surcharge for the wifi service and it will cost 7 USD per day by purchasing it for your entire stay.

We hope to welcome you back to our hotel.

Kind regards,

Beautiful resort - the smaller size makes it easier to get everywhere. The beach and pool areas were always clean. Food was really good, and restaurant service was excellent, even in the buffet. Have to pay for wifi, even in the lobby.

Our room was old, curtains and linens had many stains. The room wasn't cozy, as at the pictures on hotel's site. It wasn't the best room for this price, i'm not recommend it. But the yard and restaurants were great.
