“Amazing Island Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

Resort was very clean and rooms were more like apartments, with complete kitchen and murphy beds in addition to king size bed. I don't think I heard the word 'no' the entire stay from staff. Beautiful views, snorkeling, and watersports with few tourists around. Sting ray city tour by Captain Chris was safe and informative and gave me 7 years of good luck kissing the stingray! White Sands watersports was extremely accomodating; when weather didn't cooperate they went out of their way to assure we were not disappointed, Thanks Captain Dave! Back to the resort, if you want to wake up to an amazing view and snorkel 5 feet from shore, which I did at least twice a day, this is where you want to be! Daina went out of her way to allow us to get our tye-dye shirts even though it was not scheduled that day. I've seen many tye-dye shirts in my time but she has the technique! Can't forget about Kevin at White Sands, nicest person on the island! Incredibly insightful to life on the island and little known attractions, not to mention daily conversation!
Did I mention the entire trip cost less than the same days trip to Orlando? And I only live 4 hours away from Orlando! Will do again, and not soon enough!

This was our second stay at the Reef for a family dive week. We first went in 2008 and returned in May 2014. We were in a 2 bedroom 2 bath condo, with our daughter and two sons. The master was nice with a king bed and private bath (albeit with a bit dated tile) the 2nd bedroom was a queen for our daughter and the living room had two comfortable murphy beds for the boys. The full kitchen and dining area were spacious. The Reef was quiet, almost like being on your own island and a welcome change from 7 Mile Beach. There are two pools, a beach bar, plenty of lounge chairs on the beach. The views are spectacular. If you want to get away from it all, and don't mind driving 30 minutes or so to the East End, the Reef cannot be beat.

Room Tip: There are great restaurants very near the Reef. Try Tukka to the West, Over the Edge to the East an...

We stayed at this hotel the week of May 2, 2014. The room was well kept and the beach in front of this resort has cleaned every morning, We had requested a room away from the bar and pool areas because we wanted quietness and relaxation because of our hectic schedules back at home and were accommodated with our request. The front desk also gave us a few good local eateries in the area. A supermarket is located across the street which was convenient for shopping, If you decide to stay here, we would recommend a car rental. The resort does provide transportation to George Town for an additional fee.

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
