We've gone to this place several times because of it's relaxing view even if the staff is not as accommodating and friendly. Even if the food is not as good and the service is slow. But we will NEVER recommend this place to our friends because the owner himself do not know how to treat customers with RESPECT! Mr. Reta... More

It's a nice beach with clear blue waters. We stayed at the nipa nut for Php 800 because they lost our reservation. No bathroom, you have to use the common cr that doesn't offer fresh water, it's like rinsing in salty beach water. The staff are very accomodating. Food is not that tasty. Waited 3 hours for the boat.

the beach is very lovely what i don't like about the place is they don't use fresh water in their shower rooms. loved the shade of the tress in the beach front. you got your privacy if you stay in the cemented houses or cottages.

Beach is absolutely stunning. But.. Since we didnt bring our own food.. we had to buy from their own restaurant.. and they keep charging us for the condiments..some calamansi..plates.. and ice for their paluto service. Tsk. Even if we have eaten so many foods from their menu and we have tried to avail the paluto...then their charging became unlimited!!! Also... More

You can reach Isla Reta Beach resort by riding a small ferry boat from davao harbour. The resort is located just beside the arriving pier, so no stress for needing any kind of service. The location and the seawater is really great ! - Very clean water, white sand beach ( maintained and clean ) - some simple beach cottages... More

Isla Reta is such a lovely place. I don't think it's a resort but there are rooms for rent. You can also opt for pitching tents to be closer to nature and the sea. The place is surprisingly clean. There is a comfort room, changing rooms and shower stalls. However, the water in the shower is a bit salty. There... More

I love the place so much. The best beach I have ever seen in my whole travel. The accommodation was not so nice but I still love to come back to catch more starfish and collect seashells. The staff were helpful and friendly and even though the room was quite old but it won't matter because spending time on the... More
