We've stayed here twice, most recently in 2012 and overall we've been happy with our stays. It's a smaller hotel which has its upsides and downsides. For one, they don't have a backup generator which is a downside when the power goes out on the island and secondly there's no restaurant. That said, the surfer bar next door offers meals... More

I spent over 2 weeks here at Reef Retreat resort to do windsurfing at the nearby Funboard center. The staff at Reef resort were so helpful from the beginning even before arriving, helping me out with ways to get to the hotel and finally agreed on shuttle service. I was met up and everything went so smoothly and everyone at... More

Room was so clean, comfortable & romantic. Near to the water sports activities, employee's so helpful. We get a cheaper price for the water sports activities from the actual price. Surrounding was great, near to shop and restaurant.

We stayed at Reef Retreat for a friends wedding. This was my first time to Borocay although my wife had been there before and had stayed at the Reef Retreat. As with all travellers who make there way to Philipines we had a monster of a journey and had spent most of our time catching up with friends and all... More

My partner and I spent five days in Boracay learning to kitesurf, and we loved Reef Retreat. The location is awesome, the rooms are clean and well furnished and the staff are amazing. Our room was steps away from Bulabog Beach, which between November and March is blessed with strong, consistent winds, calm surf, plenty of sun and a shallow,... More

If you are headed to Boracay for the first time or even as a return traveller, book with Reef Retreat. The hotel is away from the hustle and bustle of white beach, but in walking distance (less than 5 minutes). A windsurfer/kite surfer's DREAM hotel, literally a 20 step walk to the water. The hotel is extremely tidy, roomy and... More

We stayed at Reef Retreat for 7 nights and had the best experience. The location was perfect as its right at the Kitesurfing / Windsurfing beach so you can constantly see the conditions from your balcony. The rooms were great, they really were a retreat away from the madness and noise of the other side, yet only an easy 10... More

What a great place to stay! Perfect for Kitesurfing & water sports, and 10 mins stroll from the lively 'other' side of the island. Reef Retreat is aptly named, a great place to chill. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, going way beyond the usual call of duty. Breakfast can be found a few yards away, along with a... More
