Pretty nice place on the beach and quiete. Very expensive with a bunch of fees on top of the rate so not my cup of tea.

Our overall experience was good. Be ready for an offer to sign up for time share presentation. They weren't overly pushy. The one room suites were roomy and the a/c was very cold. Nice kitchen with all the necessary items. Grocery store across the street, plus Subway attached to hotel made it better. Our master bed was to soft, so my wife and I swapped with our teenage son and slept on the firmer Murphy beds. Wednesday night is karaoke night and this was a lot of fun. Be sure to go early and get a seat. Restaurant is pretty pricey, so we didn't eat there. One note of warning is that it is one the far east side of the island, so it takes a car and lots of time to get to the other attractions of the island. The plus side of this is no crowds, This made it worth the stay.

We had a really relaxing time at this resort. The beach water was warm but too many coral reefs. It was difficult for my children to step in the water without stepping on the large rocks. The staff was amazing. Extremely friendly and respectful to all of us.

Once me and my daughter got to the hotel everyone was very pleasant. The rooms were nice and clean;

Literally on the beach. Would buy groceries across the street because restrurant can be expensive.

Great staff. Spacious rooms. Private beach was so peaceful

Our vacation was fantastic! Having the Carribbean approx. 20 yards from right outside our sliding door was unbelievable. The east end was quiet, romantic, and very relaxing. We rented a car for the whole week and used it as we wanted to see the sights. From Sting Ray City, Rum Point, to the Cayman Turtle Farm and 7 Mile Beach, we experienced many breathtaking locations and still spent time at our wonderful resort!

This hotel was great for relaxing. Staff was very helpful and knowledgeable.

Hotel staff welcomed us very friendly. Drinks at the bar were incredibly expensive! One could not eat there, would have paied much to much.... But there are good restaurants near there and a store is right across the street. Knowing about this, we would stay in this resort again. Hotel Management should really think about the prices of the drinks!

This is a quiet and beautiful place. Rooms are clean and beds are very comfortable. The view from our room was amazing and hotel staff was very nice and helpful. It is about 45 minutes away from George Town, so we rented a small car and drove around the island, which is very small, therefore almost everything is close.

Our experience was less than ideal. While the resort itself is of nice quality with clean (to start) rooms and a cool location, right on a reef, we found the service lacking. out of the 6 nights we stayed we only got 4 of room service and had to call for clean towels and coffee since the maid skipped us. We asked the concierge on our arrival to set up a fly fishing trip. After assuring us he knew just who to call, and saying he would get back to us, he dropped the ball. My wife complained and the manager checked back with us with apologies about how busy they were. That's only a sign of poor management and under-staffing. no real excuse for an establishment that charges $11+ US for a cheap rum cocktail. The Pelican Reef restaurant upstairs was also very spendy but at least the food and service were good. The Resort's continental breakfast which would be complementary at any US hotel sets you back $14.00, before they add the gratuity to your bill! Thank goodness their was a Subway deli on site! Maybe we are not used to what the upper crust of the world is willing to pay for. But we've traveled quite a bit and stayed in some pretty chique hotels and felt we got what we paid for. We came away with no such feeling here.

The hotel was great. The suit was spacious and bright. Furnishings were very nice, clean, and in good shape. Staff was very nice, friendly and helpful. The only negative is that the hotel is a long way from everything. The drive to town was very long. You would think that on an island just twenty miles long that things would be close, but road is curvy and slow. Takes a long time to get to town. Current makes snorkeling a little dangerous on the Eastern end of the island, so we spent a lot of time in the car. Overall, though, we had a great time.

This place was perfect for two. All the rooms have an ocean view, and what a stunning view it is. The beach right outside the hotel has a wonderful reef full of life. I snorkeled nearly every day and saw tons of fish, a nurse shark (harmless), stingrays (just don't touch them), flounders, a million types of coral, and more. It was wonderful. My husband doesn't enjoy snorkeling as much so he just lay on the great beach chairs (plenty to go around in August when we went) and ordered drinks from the hotel beach bar. The food was a bit pricey but that was true everywhere in the island. The location was great if you want to avoid all the cruise crowds. I would definitely stay there again!

This Resort was fabulous. Since most of the rooms are privately owned as vacation condos, it is hard to say if our experience will be the same as others' experiences. However, the location is wonderful, quiet--great for a vacation. Getting around the island by car is easy and you can stop off in some of the most interesting small towns and beaches. The Resort itself has beautiful pools that are well maintained and EVERY room is right on the beach. We had a ground floor room and could walk out of our studio unit onto the beach whenever we wanted. We were in the furthest building from the main reception area so everything was quiet and perfect. Great resort, good prices and wonderful memories. Be sure to book a trip to swim with the stingrays. Once-in-a-lifetime experience. We loved it!

We were very pleased with our stay here. The hotel was perfect for our needs, located in a quiet section of Grand Cayman where prices are much more moderate. Enjoy the quiet beauty of this area unspoiled by mega resorts, lots of traffic, and high end restaurants where you feel compelled to dress up. This is a shorts and sandals kind of place. There is a Subway right in the resort for a quick sandwich, and a small grocery store across the street to pick up basic provisions. The beaches are just as beautiful and there is great snorkeling right off the beach here, and within a 10 minute drive (Kaibo). Word of caution is that there are not many restaurants here. We particularly liked Tukka which is 5 minutes away and actually runs a shuttle to the hotel, but I would recommend renting a car or bicycle. We spent 4 days here and then onto Seven Mile Beach where we stayed at the Ritz Carlton for a conference. Needless to say, it was night and day, but overall, my husband and I preferred the East End of the island. When I return to the Grand Cayman, I would come back here. Service was friendly and place was clean, with everything you need to have a nice relaxing vacation but nothing fancy.

This is a great place. Don't look for 5 stars all around. You'll miss out on it's great value and even better location ONLY if you want to be away from the crowds and get more beautiful remote feel. We love this area. 7 mile beach area is the place to go if you need that sought of vibe and energy. It is beautiful.

Good experience. Helpful staff. Clean room with excellent view. Arrived late and just relaxed in room.

View was excellent. The location-peace and quiet, was just what we were looking for. The resort and staff need some work. We were there 6 nights and had to ask for towels, which were only provided twice,as was the room cleaning. The bed was extremely hard. Staff often didn't have answers to simple questions. One bar staff was rude when my husband asked for water. After buying a few food items across the street and placing them in the warm fridge, we called the front desk. We told them the microwave and coffee maker weren't working and the fridge wasn't cold. Turned out the outlet didn't work and the fridge ended up somewhat cool, but not cold by any means. We heard multiple times that the Windham was going to buy The Reef out. If the place was better managed it would have gotten a better review so hopefully a change in ownership will do the condo owners good. Overall we enjoyed the Grand Cayman and would return. Regarding the hotel.... it was ideal for tranquility but lacked that special something.

The hotel was easy to find and it is a beautiful drive from the airport. The staff are so nice. The bartenders make the best "mudslide" found anywhere on the island. Barefoot Man show was good but I think the meal could of been better. This is mainly a time share resort but I never felt intimidated to go through their sales pitch. Nice place to stay.

The Reef Resort is perfect if you are looking for a peaceful and uncrowded location. All inclusive plan worked great for our family. One bedroom oceanview unit was spacious, clean and quiet.
