Reading some of the other reviews I was expecting something awful, but it's not that bad. It is quite old and has been left to go for many years without any updates including the furniture. However, it was clean enough, the bathrooms were clean, the sheets and towels were clean. Yes some of the windows were dirty, the balcony not...

We visited Reef Resort for the second time in February 2016 and stayed for six weeks which we booked from the U K. Carl who oversees this resort was very pleasant and informative. He did forget however to remind us to register with the Electicty Board for the length of our stay. This resort is very beautifully placed, but is...

Our family has stayed at Reef Resort for a number of years now because we love the location and peaceful surroundings. The resort is only a few steps from Mona Vale beach. The units are larger than others we have stayed in and the balcony is great for romantic dinners or family get-togethers. We often have BBQs downstairs or in...

Absolutely disgraceful. The health department should be notified. Furniture old and dirty, bed linen and towels stained and suitable for rags, cupboards dirty, plates and cookware a joke. Appliances from the 80's. We couldn't see out windows for grime. Carpets worn. Seems Nana who owns all 50+ units wont spend a cent on them. We had to clean the shower...

Absolutely awful place! Disgusting apartments and cockroaches in the beds etc. Whole place was awful. Most of our party moved out to local hotels. Wouldnt be so bad if it was cheap but it simply isn't. Go and book into a backpackers will be cheaper and cleaner.

If you choose to stay here ...bring your own bed and bedding and don't plan to cook or eat off the dinner plates. I agree with Bigfella10_12 and Dell 20 100%.The place really needs to be bulldozed and the owner was less than impressed with our constructive criticisms. He even stated that he doesn't want holiday apartments...just permanent tenants so...

We stayed at the Reef Resort last weekend for a quick weekend away. The staff were lovely and checked us into a top floor apartment with new carpet and a lovely view. The cafes within walking distance were fantastic and we couldn't fault our accommodation. We'd stay again for sure!!
