My boyfriend and I just returned to a five night stay at The Reef Playacar and it was more than a great experience. We initially chose The Reef because it was within our budget and to be honest I was a little nervous because of the negative reviews it received. However, I am here to tell you The Reef is definitely a great vacation spot. The hotel design was beautiful, it goes for a forest look that is well kept by the staff who is outside watering the foliage at all hours of the day, the rooms... Read more

We just returned from our family vacation at The Reef Playacar. The front desk staff is very rude and unfriendly. We made it VERY clear upfront that we would not waste a minute of our vacation listening to time share info etc. The rooms are old and musty. The jungle theme is cool and we liked that this resort is very small! It is easy to find things and get around. The pool bartenders are extremely lazy, rude and crabby! We saw one bartender flip off a guest and call him a name! They were ... Read more

Be careful with this hotel. I went with my husband for summer vacation on September 2015 and we had such a bad experience with alcohol at this hotel. Their low prices are not worth it. After the incident we did not have any attention from the manager or any hotel personnel.

We have stayed there for 5 days. Staff is very friendly and nice. Overall I had a good time, except that we had to upgrade our room for $30/night, not to have a smelly moldy room. I believe its an issue there. Smell of mold was very strong in the first and second floor rooms we were given the first time. In addition, the HOT water DOES NOT work in the mornings. You will have to shower in a barely warm water if you decide to take a shower around 7-9am. Staff just told us to run the water for 15 m... Read more

My family just returned from a week at The Reef playacar Rivera Maya. This vacation was booked through with my travel agent. As soon as we checked into the hotel, we were hassled to sign up to go and sit for 90 minutes presentation the following day. They were trying to get is to buy timeshare. The room was dingy looking. I had to phone the front desk three times for toiletries and bottle water. My husband was running to the bathroom throughout the vacation from the food. I had to pay extra for... Read more

My boyfriend and I (now fiance) planned this trip in February 2015. We stayed from May 16-23. It was our first trip out of the country and we were beyond excited. We researched for months before we chose a location and resort. We finally chose The Reef Playacar because of the outstanding value we received. Upon arriving, we were greeted by door men that made you feel welcome. We arrived early and was still able to get into our room! When I booked our trip I requested a king size bed and th... Read more

My friend and I were at this resort for the first time. When booking I really didn't read the reviews. We looked at the hotel and the price worked for what we wanted to spend. Our first bad experience was at the airport with the shuttle arrangement. We booked and added the shuttle transportation. I blame the hotel because we never got any information about the transport nor did we receive any voucher. Next we arrived at the hotel and checked in, our rooms were not ready which was perfectly ... Read more
