Activities for the whole family and residential amenities

The Ocean Reef Resort boasts efficiencies and condos with full kitchens and plays an active role in entertaining its guests. Daily supervised children's activities engage the kids come summer, while a new water park wows with tipping buckets, water streams, fountains and oversized tiki statues. A tropical lounge sets the mood for outdoor cocktails. An-onsite sauna, fitness center and game room round out the leisure options.

Highlights
  • Oceanfront condos with refrigerators and microwaves
  • New Island Oasis water park
  • Supervised children's activities in summer
  • Game room, shuffleboard and oversized chess and checkers games
  • Outdoor dining and drinking plus a breakfast buffet
Rooms

Available as efficiencies, suites, parlors, condos and penthouses, rooms at the Ocean Reef Resort tend to extended-stay travelers with full kitchens, dishware, cookware and dining table. Private balconies boast side or full ocean views. Guests also can access Wi-Fi.

Recreation

Giant tiki statues watch over the new water park, a playful display that includes a shipwreck, perpetually sinking ship, giant tipping bucket, dripping palm trees and friendly sea serpent. The amusement ensues at the lazy river, which snakes indoors and outdoors under water curtains and mushrooms. During the summer, kids engage in supervised activities like craft making and pool contests. Adults relax in the sauna or grab a stool at the oceanfront Banana Boat Lounge. A full breakfast buffet fuels guests who like the convenience of dining out for at least one meal a day. The menu covers eggs multiple ways, fresh fruit, juices and bottomless cups of coffee.

ehhh

It was an ok place, but I believe sleeping on plywood would have been more comfortable. There was rust stains in the shower and the shower curtain had mildew on it. The WiFi was not very good. I guess it was a decent place but could use some work.

Hotel wasted hard earned money

Roaches visible Room was not cleaned daily had to do the work ourselves and it took five calls to the front desk to get clean linens on the second night. On the third they passed by our room again had to call front desk again. We asked to speak to a manager the first night they kept saying one would call and never did. We asked on the second night they were stalling on letting us speak to a manager, when we finally did he apologized and said he would refund $50.00 off of a night stay. It has yet to show on my card. The lazy river did not work and the place showed lack of maintenance. This is the first time I used Orbiz's and am reluctant in using this service again.

Clean, large condo rooms

We stayed in a three bedroom condo unit, and it faced the beach. Very clean, large balcony, beds were good, rooms were large. Very nice pool, with water play area for small children. Elevators were fast. The parking lot is across the street, but it's a two lane street that is not very busy. Beach is a few steps from pool. Starbucks located in condo next to this one, which was nice. The only thing that was disappointing was we wanted to check out 2 hours after the 11 a.m. checkout and they would not let us, but they said that is their policy. Other than that, I would recommend this property.

Enjoyable stay

The oceanfront efficiency room was very roomy and clean. The efficiency rooms even come with a stove and oven. The views were beautiful. No complaints at all. Will definitely stay here again in the future.
