“What a fabulous place”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

If you like remote and quiet this is the place for you! We went off season which means it is so relaxing. On the resort is enough entertainment for children and adults. They arrange all kinds of activities and you can book trips or just snorkel in the sea at the resort. If you like busy towns and lots of tourists this might not be the place for you. We rented a car at the airport which was in my opinion a very wise decision. There is a supermarket very close by and a nice Italian place on walking distance. If you decide to rent a car you better visit, Tukka restaurant, The Lighthouse restaurant and Kurt's place. The last one is nothing fancy but the food is to die for and so cheap. Check tripadvisor and you will notice that all the high rated Grand Cayman Island restaurants are not on the seven mile beach area. We went for a couple of days and really enjoyed it. Another important thing on the reef all rooms and apartments have full beachfront views which is really nice. At the Morrits resort next door not all rooms and apartments have full beachfront views. We had a deluxe studio which was spacious and very nice. My advise go there!

We had the best time there! the staff were very friendly, especially the new restaurant manager Martin Pilat, which we had the pleasure of meeting. He was very friendly and went out of his way to help out us out and other guests at the bar and restaurant due to the slow service given there. Since we stayed there 8 days, we stayed around the resort and eating and drinking there quite often. really wish the food was better at the restaurant for the price you pay. It wasn't up to par. It was my boyfriend's Markus 50th birthday celebration week, we were so glad we've found this gem. We rented a car so we were able to get to Rum Point, and George Town, and other areas from here. Thank you for making it memorable.

Room Tip: Make sure you get the ocean view!

We chose The Reef because it was away from the busy Seven Mile Beach area. It is a nice facility, though a bit dated, but a little too remote. We wanted to see everything on the island so we did a LOT of driving. On days when we spent time on Seven Mile Beach or West Bay, we just couldn't face driving back across the island for dinner. Other than that, we had a great stay. The suite was roomy and nice, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the beach was perfect. If you don't mind a 40-50 minute drive to get to anything (other than a few restaurants in the area) or you aren't worried about getting away from the resort much, we highly recommend it.

Just back from our second year at the Reef. Doris and Sandra are always there with a smile and "can-do" attitude. Always helpful Cathy and Daina at the concierge with lots of ideas and ways to make it happen. Is there anything that Collin and Nick can't do at the bar? The staff at White Sands are amazing, creative, and wonderful. If you are looking for a relaxing, laid back, memorale time with your family, this is it. We look forward to many more years at the Reef.

Room Tip: All are great with unbelievable views

We are currently at The Reef for our seventh time. This year we was here for two weeks in May and now three weeks in August. Each time we come here we bring different friends or family members. Each and evertime over the last 6 years we have all had an amazing time. I was particularly dismayed reading the review just before this one where the professional complainer launched a personal attack on staff members Cathy and Jake stating they 'are awful.' Over the years we have got to know Cathy and Jake well and have both become personal friends, as have most of the staff here, and I have always chose my friends wisely. I can categorically say that no single member of staff here are anything short of great. They will even sometimes attempt to perform the impossible. But to all the professional complainers out there sometimes in life some things requested just can't be accommodated. Just look at the many hundreds of reviews on here complimenting the staff. If The Reef was not the best place on earth we simply would not come back year after year. As I have said in my previous reviews it is the staff that make this place. Come here and you will see I'm right.

The resort is very well maintained and the service and responsiveness was very good. The largest challenge for the resort is the location if you do not want or have a car. It is about a 45 min ride into Georgetown and a bit further for 7 mile beach. The team here makes the best of it with arranging a daily shuttle into Georgetown at a reasonable fee and 1st class arrangement of excursions that include pick up and drop off. Because of the remote location you have the beach and snorkeling right off shore without the crowds!

It was a fantastic hotel, the personnel were so helpful and lovely! From front desk, to restaurant staff, to concierge, to grounds keepers, it was just exceptional! It was an actual vacation in an actual paradise! Our rooms were comfortable although I do believe they should have cleaned the rooms and not for an extra charge ($15 but still)! The rooms were in excellent condition and the view, spectacular! The beach and 3 pools, PERFECT! I/we will be back...that is a promise! One little thing....rent a car, the taxi is very expensive and it is not near very much especially the airport! Like I said....an escape away from it all!

Room Tip: The view on third floor is incredible and less sand to find its way into your beds!
