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. It's only 10-15 min walk to these places. After a day out or a night partying, this resort offers a perfect place to unwind for it offers a cozy room... More

Great service,amazing location,dedicated staff. This was my first time to Boracay and it was an awesome experience! I plan on staying at Reef Retreat for the next time I visit. If you are looking for a great affordable place to stay, right next to the beach you dont need to look anymore.

Clean and nice rooms with perfect location for kitesurfers on Bulabog beach! Air condition and fridge. We could just step out on the balcony to see if there was enough wind in the mornings. Perfect! Walking distance to everything you need. Kite center next door for storage. Very helpful personnel.

I thought I would write a review as we have just spent two weeks at the Reef Retreat. Overall we did enjoy our stay, we originally booked the double room but upgraded to the suite as we required use of a kitchen. This resort has the potential to be excellent but a few things in our opinion did let it... More
