Only an hour away from Davao city, the clear waters and powdery white sand is amazing. Best not to go on a weekend though, as the small strip of beach can get very crowded. Bare bones, simple and quiet on a weekday, with a herd of sheep making this quaint resort even more picturesque. Two things though - the showers... More

nice beach, peaceful, quiet, you can relax with your family and friends. Better book for a concrete house than a native house. because its not a house, its like a cottage house only. No electrical sockets, no fan, not good if you wanted to stay overnight. Book ahead before you go to isla reta. Meals are very affordable, Native tinola... More

I love the beach. It's one of the best beaches in DAVAO Region today. I just don't like it during peak season esp summer. Its hard to book a room. Isla Reta is a simple resort but you will definitely fall in love with its beach. You better stay there overnight to enjoy it more. Lying on the beach while... More

Isla Reta is a small beach resort with white sand. My first and second visits were heavenly, the resort was all to ourselves (day tour only in 2012 and 2013). We were not so lucky on our third visit (overnight stay), the resort was full to the hilt. We estimated the guests who stayed overnight to be around 500-600. Cottages... More

Nice beach..if hoing on a holiday ,I recommend you reserve a tent or cabin ahead of time...not overly developed..needs to improve their comfort room facilities though.Especially during holidays and loong weekends,they should anticipate the influx of visitors and be prepared.

I have been to Isla Reta 4 times. I think it is a great spot, prices are good, service is good-and the beach and water are incredible. However I will never go back there !! The problem isnt the resort - its the boat transportation. The boat leaves Davao at 9 am and is supposed to return from the resort... More

A one-hour boat ride from Davao wharf, you'll reach Talikud Island in an instant. We rode the habal-habal from the port to Isla Reta for 20minutes. The beach is good, the sand is very fine. The view however is not that spectacular because it is fronting the bigger Samal Island. We didn't book for a room in advance so we... More

We went here for a day trip in February 2012. I really don't have much to say about the rooms as I spent most of my time swimming in the beach. The tables lined up near the beach were perfect for lunch. I would definitely visit the resort again for the beach. Date Reviewed:
