Dont get me wrong, we love the Reef. But this was our last time to stay there, as they cater to the time share owners and actual condo owners. We love it there because we have great access to the beach from the first floor. It's easy for our ten year old to go to the pool or beach while we relax in the evenings on our porch. we chose to celebrate our 20 year wedding anniversary there this summer with our kids.....at the Reef in our usual beach/pool access condo...that's why we stay there.
We request a 1st floor condo near the pool every time and that's where we stayed the 1 st 2 times, but this time we were put in the farthest building away from any pool on the 2nd floor. We made our usual request weeks in advanced. Apparently several time sharers and owners were coming this same week and they have first dibs. We were told we were first on the list to move if anything opened up. Never heard back from anyone the entire 5 night stay. ever.
The icing on the cake was when we counted at least 12 1st floor condos unoccupied throughout our stay. I understand if it really was a full house, but it wasn't. Kids were really bummed, as we're my husband and I. We will never book the Reef again. We are not interested in purchasing a condo/time share, so we will never be guaranteed our request. We are taking our next trip elsewhere in Cayman next time. :(
