Boat first trip is at 6am according to the information that we have gathered from the resort staff. 2nd trip is in between 9-9:30am. Trip going back to the city is only 3pm. Boat ride is Php80.00 one way. If you're not able to ride on that trip there are other boat rides on the dock next to isla reta... More

If you want to a place that keeps you away from the rest of the world, this is the place. Accommodation is limited but you can set up tent and camp by the beach. You can order food or check out the local market nearby for fresh catch, then have em cooked in the resort. Boat transfers are scheduled, so... More

Sand and water in this beach is very nice! a bit of broken corals but not so as you need to wear a pair of aqua shoes. You can have a dip near the shore in some areas during the afternoon without burning yourself since they have a lot of big trees and they face East. The beach is clean,... More

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

very clear water, well kept grounds, nice sandy beach, delicious food, privacy, safety... these are what make isla reta stand out. some things that you should know before going: 1. travel time: 1.5 hours by slow boat. if the schedule says 9 AM be prepared to leave one hour later. 2. condition of boats: typical of the philippines. sometimes you...
