  • Sooooo many things The Crown Reef has done right!!!

    Honest positive review- I was married here in 2007. Great ceremony and reception- thank you Crown Reef. I have not been here since 2007, and my family and I came back because of the great rates and to show our children where we were married. (I am soooo glad that we came here!) Okay…. It’s like this- 1. Clean 2. Great and friendly staff 3. If you have children you can not beat this place. The water park is oceanfront- so you can do the beach, pool, water park, and kiddie area is all in close vicinity. Might I add - it’s nice to have a water park on site!!! Love it. 4. The arcade! My kids love it! 5. The breakfast downstairs 6. The mascot - Salty walked around and took pictures with the kids! How cool is that? 7. Hair wraps and braiding on site! Love it 8. Italian Ice - on site! 9. Big plus- The refill cups! Love them and going for soda refills at anytime! 10. The restaurant downstairs 11. People constantly painting, cleaning up, and taking care of the place! I love that! 12. Banana Boat rides, parasailing etc. right on the beach. The only thing that I miss is the purple railing, purple lighting, and hints of purple that used to be everywhere. But that’s okay. Things change. If you have children and want a clean, fun place to stay this is for you. :)
