Verry boring hotel

Reviewed 27 november, 2021

Fabulos beach,good food,clean rooms but entertainment team is almost inexistent especially in the night.So it's a verry boring in the night.Only a rooftop bar with same old music like 10 years ago,repeating over and over.So,if you want just to stay at the beach or pool,eat and drink,then it's ok this hotel,but if you want entertainment..is not a good hotel for you.Personally I will not come again in this place,but I deffinitley come again in Playa del Carmen

Reef playacar is my favorite resort in Mexico!

Reviewed 18 november, 2021

The staff makes this resort one of my favorite places in the world to stay at and wish that I could stay a month each time. The value is fantastic and the jungle in the middle of the resort is gorgeous! The rooms are great. the pillows are not the best and I just bring my own.

Awesome Stay!

Reviewed 16 november, 2021

Our group of seven people had an awesome stay at The Reef Playacar from 11/10-11/15! Aside from the mattresses being a little too firm for our tastes, everything about our stay was perfect. The buffet and special dining options were delicious and there were plenty of meal options for each of our tastes. We also had the greatest time with Andrea, Antonio and Chris, who worked in the activities area by the pool. They really made the trip that much more fun and are so great at what they do! Cesar, Erik and Antonio were also such great bartenders at the pool bar. This was a trip we'll always remember, and we look forward to coming back soon!

Beautiful Resort

Reviewed 9 november, 2021

We love The Reef Playacar, the resort is small enough that it has that family feel to it. The staff is friendly and attentive to our needs. The beach is one of the best in all of Playa del Carmen. The grounds are meticulously maintained and there's always some great shows going on and other activities to participate in if you choose. We can't wait to go back.

Another Great Visitn

Reviewed 8 november, 2021

We are happy to say this was our 16th visit to the Reef. We love this quaint resort on on the best beach in Playacar. The 3 story villas are in a jungle like setting. It is very clean and has had many recent upgrades. We have always had great service and food at the buffet as well as the 2 set down dinner restaurants. As you see in the list of amenities they have a lot to offer. We are seeing more return visitors year to year. For us it is the Reef's Friendly Employees that make it SO special. We have made many long time friends and enjoy getting to know the newer ones. Just to name a few, Thank Yous to: Miaia, Adam, Felix, Humberto, Antonio, Octavio, Nestor, Fernando, Santiago, Victoria, Paulino, Gladys, Mary, Jorge for making our visits special. We can't wait to come back !!!
