“The Reef Resort was a delightful change for a Cayman vacation.”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

I have been a Cayman regular all my life. Favoring George Town and the Seven Mile Beach corridor, I had nearly forgotten the beauty and quiet of Northside and Colliers. More the feel of times long past, than cosmopolitan George Town.

The Reef Resort sits on over a quarter-mile of pristine beach. Our room, a condo, was well finished and clean, with a whirlpool tub for two in the middle of our room. And an unlimited ocean view from our room and large patio.

Every amenity is there, from the gym, to good food, jet skis and sailboats, nightly music and activities, fishing, pools, hot tubs and very friendly people. And something else hard to find in busy Cayman, lots of peace and quiet. Excellent restaurants close by for dinner out.

One thing missing in our Studio unit were cooking facilities, which are standard in the larger units.

If you want peace and quiet in beautiful Cayman, The Reef is the place for you.

My sister and I just got back from this trip. It was fantastic. Everyone on the resort is very friendly and helpful. We had a great room with a beautiful view and the water was very clean. The staff work hard to keep the beachfront as well as the resort clean on a daily basis. I was worried that being all the way on the East End would be a dead area. Although it doesn't offer all the stores and shops you would find in Georgetown, it is much quieter than the west side of the island. It was nice and peaceful and just what we wanted on our vacation. No obnoxious college students

The only con about this resort is that food and drinks on the resort are on the pricey side and our food sometimes took a while to arrive. It wasn't 5 star food either. It was average.

However, we will definitely come back here ! The beaches were so clean and the resort is in such a peaceful area.

I just completed my fifth trip to the Cayman Islands with all five stays having been at the Reef. I love the quiet side of Grand Cayman (East End) and am pleased to see now that there is now a rental car agency located across the street along with the Italian Restaurant, liquor store, grocery store and tourist shop. If you like quiet, relaxing, family-friendly vacations at a very comfortable resort with all-beach front units this is the place for you.

Room Tip: All units are beachfront so there are no bad rooms.

Had an amazing and relaxing week. Just what we needed. So glad we stayed here instead of seven mile beach. The grocery store and liquor store are right across the street. And there is an amazing Italian restaurant across the street as well, we ate there twice. The food and the drinks at the Reef was very good for hotel food. I would definitely go back here! My kids loved the beach and the pools.

Room Tip: Bottom floor walk right out to the beach

We had room 307A & B. We stayed there April 12-19. In the studio the bedroom faced the ocean so we slept in there! Beautiful ocean view every morning! Tho the Tv in there is really small. then 1 bedroom is very nice but the king bedroom was in the back. Fully stocked kitchen is very good as food there is really expensive good... but be prepared to spend some $$. We exchanged thru interval so be warned you will be paying for an electric fee, $300.00 for a one week stay for a 2 bedroom then be also aware you will have a $10.00 a day resort fee. so before we were even there for a day we had fees of $370.00. lol Food at the restaurant was very good we did have themed dinners one was steak night we had the rib-eye highly recommended so very good. the spicy wings yum! also loved the jerk chicken wrap oh my!! but be prepared for the price tag! they also have a subway on the premise so that was nice. taxi rides cost $100 from George town. but they do have public bus that will take you there for a nominal fee! which we opted for. be aware they are on island time! we never did get good maid service never changed out linens in a week or towels unless you asked for them. they did come in daily to empty your garbage. ocean very rocky you will need to wear water shoes. beach very nice. plenty of chairs to choice from. i would come back again love this place!

Room Tip: ground floor nice to have if you have children easy access! but no privacy as people are walking by...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Reef Resort for 6 days last week. What a beautiful hotel and area! From the moment we stepped into the resort everyone (staff and visitors alike) were extremely friendly! Anytime that we needed assistance from a staff member (i.e. someone to help us jump our car, new towels, suggestions on where to go to dinner, what attractions to see, what tours to go on, etc.) we were helped immediately. The hotel room and beach were very clean and exceeded our high expectations. While there we jet skied with Allen from White Sands (highly suggest using White Sands for activities!!), took a bioluminescent tour with The Sweet Spot, and went with Chris (also from White Sands) to Stingray City on the 7AM tour. It was nice to be at a resort away from the bulk of the other hotels in Seven Mile Beach and Georgetown. I highly recommend staying at the Reef Resort!

This was our second visit to the Reef as owners this time. It's a beautiful resort, clean, staff members friendly and helpful, the view from our sliding doors is gorgeous. It is much quieter than the resorts on seven mile beach, but that's the way we like it. It's just perfect to get away from our hectic and sometimes stressful life at home. Total relaxation on a beautiful spot. It is off the beaten path being all the way on the east end, but there is a small grocery store and liquor store across the street to stock up and save some money. The restaurant on site has very good food; we've never been disappointed, and the drinks are excellent! Tony and Nick at the bar make some great cocktails. Thanks guys! I also want to say thank you to all the staff at the Reef that make us feel so welcome with their smiles and friendliness. A special thank you to Cathy and Rochi at the concierge. They both are so helpful and go above and beyond to make our stay so enjoyable. I highly recommend visiting the Reef for a quiet and relaxing getaway on a beautiful beach.
