We booked this resort based on Trip Advisor reviews, and its location on the quiet side of the Island. Some important points to note: We made the booking via email, and were quoted a fixed price (incl GST/VAT and service tax). We were then sent a PayPal link for the fixed price quoted, plus another 4.4%! When queried, we got... More

I spent a week at this hotel- we were kiting and doing yoga with Simone from the funboard centre so it was in the perfect location. The rooms are clean and spacious. The staff are great, especially the manager Karima. She was on point with restaurant recommendations and generally great to talk to every day! Night guard is on all... More

We have just stayed 9 days at this relaxing location and thoroughly reccomend it to others who are looking for a peaceful location with a great outlook onto the wind surfers beach. Our room was very comfortable, included a lounge/kitchen with TV and cable TV. The balcony looked straight out to Bullabog Beach and we awoke to see Kite's zipping... More

first time to Boracay, stayed only 4 days, should have stayed longer, 27-31 august which is quiet season, Reef Retreat is at Bullabog Beach on the "quiet side" only 7 minutes easy walk to White Beach, really barely 5 minutes walk, if you want a quiet place well priced with friendly staff, this may be where you should go, many...

We stayed here for two nights after first being on White Beach. This place is really very good, much quieter than White Beach and because the island is so small you're only a short walk from the action on the other side. It's great value, the only downside is no breakfast included but there's a nice place to eat on... More

Quiet side of boracay, opposite side to white beach, can see sun rise, take 5 minutes walk to main road, budget choice management should consider allowing customer to cancel booking and refund on conditions, this stops potential customer to try the resort, be confident

This trip was booked without knowing that it's going to be a wet month in Boracay. RRR is located at Bulabog beach, away from the bustling Stations of White beach.
