Great location right on the ocean, all ocean-facing rooms. Hotel l is in a state of repair due to damage from Hurricane Matthew and much needed renovations Resort consists of 3 connected towers, we were in the oldest - tower 1. We had issues with our door/key from the moment we arrived until we left. Room was old and worn...

I will never stay there again. Beds and pillows are horrible. When making the reservation I asked about lazy river and pool. They told me how nice they were, actually they were out of service and have been since the hurricane in October...they didn't think it was important to mention that when reserving the room.

We booked a King Suite, Jacuzzi room for our anniversary stay. The Jets on the tub hardly worked. The tub didn't drain well. The room was very small to what we are accustomed to. And these rooms come with small flat screen TV show. The view was the nicest part of our stay. We weren't familiar with the property so...

When we were there they were under renovations which after reading current reviews it sounds like they still are a year later. We stayed on the top floor which was a birds poop paradise. The room was clean but the grounds were not, a little pressure washing could go a long way. This place has great potential if they get...

I regularly stay here for business reasons. My favorite hotel. Always clean and comfortable in a quiet setting. Currently some construction going on but not a problem. The friendliest staff in town from servers to general manager. Stay here, you won't regret it Don't forget the omelets in the morning!

Just got back from my stay at this resort and there are some pluses and minuses for this resort. It is clear that the resort is trying hard to upgrade, but it is also clear that there are many things that need repaired. The room was really great, it had 2 queen beds, a pull out couch, and a murphy...

Only two pools open out of 20. One indoors with 150 people in it or outdoor where you freeze, the whirlpools are cold. At no point EVEN AT CHECK IN were we informed they were under renovations and everything is closed. Now stuck in our room which was clean. I booked this for my family to relax and swim and...

Staying at the Crown Reef Resort March 2017 was not a pleasant experience for my husband and I. The staff was friendly, the room squeaky clean and that is where the positive ends. Our suite consisted of a bedroom with two very uncomfortable beds, a decent kitchen and bath/shower and then a living room with a TV, table and chairs,...

Over $300 for the oldest beds, furniture and bathrooms we've ever seen in a hotel. While we had an ocean view, it did not make up for the room, or the water park areas under construction. Our view was a huge, green pool with police tape around it. We called to complain about cost versus quality and were told we...
