We had a one-night stopover between Cape Trib and a flight to our next destination. While we arrived early evening and left by 9am the next morning, it was a wonderful choice for our needs.
The Reef-Palms is not "fancy" but the charm and friendliness of the owners and great location are what is important. The rooms are mini-apartments, with basic cooking facilities. Had we stayed for a few days, it would be an excellent choice to use as "home" while we took day trips.
I realized that I needed to go to the front desk to get the code for internet access. The office was closed for the evening, but one of the owners (?) was kind enough to open and give me a code right away.
It is a bit away from the "center" of town, which seems to be the Lagoon. However, this is a major "plus." We went into town for dinner and the area is typically touristy, with the local teens hanging out. It might be too noisy and busy to be right in the middle of it all.
If we are lucky enough to be back in the area, we will definitely stay there again.
