“Making Memories”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2014

Thank you Ocean Reef for a wonderful stay. The staff was great. My family stayed at the Ocean Reef to attend a wedding that was held on the grounds of this hotel. The staff were very accommodating especially the wedding planner, Santana!! The food that was served at the reception was delicious. The grounds were nicely kept with beautiful Hibiscus plants everywhere.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony with open rails so that you can see the ocean from your room. I read other review...

Good property with excellent staff. They were very cordial and always eager to helpful. All pools, hot tubs, etc were nice. Furnishings were a little 'well used' but were clean and usable. Overall, a decent experience.

Room Tip: Booked an ocean FRONT condo, got an ocean VIEW. Double check all your requests prior to booking. O...

Great location, very nice, clean room. Excellent price for this type resort. We would definately return here in the future.....We stayed for only two nights, and then went down to Pawleys Island, but this was the first time we stayed so far north. It is located 4-5 miles from downtown MB, but that was fine with us.......definately a quiter location

Room Tip: We stayed on the 14th. floor, but there was NO problems with the elevators at all!!

Ocean Reef is very family friendly. Adults and children = enjoyment! This was our 2nd visit and no hesitation to spend another visit. The accounting/bill needs some work for accuracy at checkout.

Ocean Reef was a great place. We were referred by friends the stay very summer. It was perfect for our needs and I think that is the key -what your needs are and what you expect out of the hotel. It seemed exceptionally great for multi-generational family vacations as well as families with young children. Our children are 12 and 14 and although they didn't utilize the kids club Ocean Reef had terrific kids activities and just the right amount. For our aged children we loved that we could have both the beach and the pool at our finger tips. We thought the location to main attractions in was also perfect - we could go north or south to any of the main attractions and be there in just minutes!

Don't get me wrong, this is a great resort for young families but it has a few pitfalls.
1. Horrible WIFI service - so frustrating, but the signal is just way to weak.
2. Loud - Afternoon DJ at the pool just a little too much for me.
3. Pool was overcrowded at peak times.
Overall though this place is a good bang for the buck if you have young kids. The staff was excellent for our visit. No real service complaints, room was clean and sufficient.
Although, if you are vacationing as a couple and don't need a lazy river and a beach bar and just want a quiet, clean, well managed place, I'd recommend the place next door called the Schooner. Our kids are starting to outgrow the Ocean Reef, so next year we are gonna try the Schooner.

Everything was excellent except for the resort fees that get put on your bill at the end of your stay. They should let you know when you check in that part of the $100 credit card hold is for marketing and resort fees.
