We would have liked more options to watch on tv. It was wet one of the days/night and tv was terrible, couldnt swim after 9.30pm so we were bored.

I have stayed at the Reef Resort on a number of occasions and it never disappoints. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the room always very clean and is well appointed. Car parking is easy and the location is great.
