Sophia is an on-the-spot wait person! Constantly checking to make sure we are good, very personable! Look forward to coming back in September!

Sophia was the best. She even arranged to come in early to accommodate for my golfing parties early tee time. Her service was exceptional. The golf party was also blown away by the excellent breakfast buffet. The food was awesome.

We stayed at the Crown Reef for six days and had breakfast every morning at the restaurant. Staff member Sophia was always cheerful, friendly and very on the spot. Coffee was always hot and the cups filled. Already looking forward to our next trip there.

The breakfast buffet is outstanding and plentiful of different items including made to order omlettes and waffles. The staff is friendly and accommodating, especially Sophia. Wonderful to only have to do downstairs to find a great place for the whole family to start their day.

We have been coming to the Crown Reef for years. Great place for families with kids/grandchildren. The Loco Geko Restaurant serves up several venues of food and drink on the property. All are excellent. We have become friends with one employee, Sonia, at the breakfast...buffet over the years. She is friendly, accommodating and attentive and has been there each time we have come down. Pre-paid breakfast tickets are available on check-inMore

Given shortages of staffing due to Covid, I understand the 30 min. wait to see waitstaff; and about 45 min. for the food to come out. (Two other tables were served before us, but arrived after us). But, when the food came, it was just...okay. I personally would not go back, but if you arrive at a nearby hotel late and need a bite, it's not terrible. The hostess never cracked a smile, but the waitress was very nice and attentive.More

The Grab N' Go Breakfast + Sophia's excellent service were the perfect start to our vacation. The food was hot, omelets were made to order, and the balcony breakfat while overlooking the ocean was just divine. Thanks Crown Reef for making breakfast convenient and comfortable!...Make sure you ask for Sophia- she was great! -The Balcony Queens 💜More

Where do I start...my burger was amazing, my jack and coke had me serving. But most importantly was the unmatched, over the top, well trained services of my man Ennis. By far the best experience I've had in any establishment. Highly recommended to any and...everyone. But before you order, be sure to thank Ennis for an amazing he's about to do. Enjoy your trip everyone.More

We have been coming from New Jersey to this resort for the last 5 years and love it! We have had breakfast at Loco Gecko every morning and Sophia has been serving us for the last 5 years! We love her! She is very friendly...and professional. We also love Xhafferr as he makes the best omelets and waffles. In the afternoon we always ordered food and hang out by the pool.....Caesar salad, chicken tenders with fries, nachos were all delicious and especially Pina coladas! Kids also loved the arcade every morning after the breakfast. Great restaurant and bar if you are staying at the hotel! Very convenient! We can`t wait to be back next year!More
