We have been going to Rock Reef off and on for 20 years. We have stayed at other locations, but always return here. The reasons are many! The grounds are so beautiful and lush with tropical flowers, plants, trees and fruits. We enjoy picking up ripe key limes that have fallen and making a pie. One of the best things is their tidal pool and beach. The snorkling is wonderful. This trip we saw seahorses, starfish, parrot fish, needle nose fish, blue crab, hermit crabs wearing tulip shells, horse shoe crabs, sponges, upside down jellies, many, many other fish! It is a quiet, peaceful, small resort that you can feel safe about letting your children enjoy playing under the coconut palms in the sand or like us, your grandchildren. We first came with our children, now we have their spouses and our grandchildren! Everything is still beautiful and nice. We like to stay in the cottages facing the beach. We seldom leave the resort once we arrive, although Pennekamp is very close. We may take the 98 mile drive to Key West to see their sunset, although nothing beats the beautiful one on the dock at Rock Reef. Then if you are lucky, you will see hundreds of lime green, tiny bioluminaries float by in the current after sunset. A spectacular show! It is always fun to explore the mangroves in the paddle boat. Although there is no pool, we have never missed it. There is a hot tub. It is one of our favorite vacation spots. You must walk across the street to eat at Ballyhoo's. It has always been there, and has fabulous seafood, homemade salad dressings and Key Lime pie. Whale Harbor on the next key down, is also a fun and good seafood buffet on the water. Throw your watch in a drawer, relax and enjoy life. It is so wonderful. We will always go back.
