Although we were told this was a non smoking property, only the rooms and the pool area are non smoking. Our second floor balcony was unusable most times due to the two chain smokers on the patio below our unit. Only one morning out of the entire week could I sip coffee on our

I am very sorry for the your inconvenience. I agree smoking is unpleasant. It is so rare to have heavy smokers in this day and age especially when we are a non smoking resort. Non smoking resort meaning the units and the pool are non smoking, This is stated on the confirmation. However, guest can smoke outdoors. We did talk to the smokers and asked them to smoke away form the unit, we also looked into getting another oceanfront room for you but we were 100% full and could not make this happen. We will be discussing this at the next board meeting, Please don't let this discourage you from coming again as we are an awesome place to stay. Management

Stayed in hotel portion of resort. Restaurant underneath serves good food but can be loud later at night. Could smell cigarette smoke in room although resort is non-smoking. Studio room not big enough for more than 2 people.

Our studios are small they are our most economic and priced well for its size Studios have a queen bed, pull out sofa and full kitchen for 140.00-150.00 night peak season. We do have bigger rooms available as well. Please note regarding the noise level from the Restaurant, we do have a guard on property to help keep the noise down just give him a call, he is here for you.

This resort is very nicely kept. We went while the red tide was present, so we didn't stay outdoors too much. The rooms are in the process of getting remodeled. Hopefully, the beds will be on the list to replace- not that comfy. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Parking

We're a little biased. My wife and her parents have owned units for 38 years and I've been coming down almost as long. Yes, it's old and doesn't have all the latest whiz bang amenities that some of the newer places might but it makes up for that with an amazing and friendly

How steep are the stairs to the second floor?
I'd consider them normal stairs, Not too steep. True, there are no elevators. Reef Ocean staff will help you on check-in and check-out if you wish.

Do you allow pets? We would like to bring our dog.
I do not believe so, this is a time share and I believe Pet restricted. Call them directly.

They are adequate for about 1 week stay, however they do face the parking lot and are on the ground floor by parking and foot traffic.

Give them a call. They always have owners that wish to rent out the units. I've always been able to get a unit when I wanted one.

"ground floor is best since no elevators"
"Ideally an ocean front efficiency or 1 bedroom is the best. However, the ocean views are wonderful and just a few steps from the ocean."
"if you don't like constantly going up stairs a first floor is a must"
"Avoid the street view rooms and ANY room near Bobby's restaurant"
"Ocean fronts are amazing"
