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

I am a seasoned traveller. I live out of a suitcase because my career demands it.

Thank you for your review, although we do find it rather strange that you have waited 5 months to write your review and as you mention in your review, you spend most of your life in hotels, and would have stayed in numerous other hotels in the time since staying at Reef Retreat?

Reef Retreat is a great place to stay - it's located on Bulabog Beach which is nice and quiet, yet walking distance (about 15 mins) to the main D'Mall / White Beach area. We stayed for 7 nights in a 1-bedroom suite with an adjoining room, so it was pretty much a 2-bedroom apartment with a kitchen, living area and... More

Great place to stay if you're looking for a place near Bulabog (the beach is right across) or if you want to avoid the noise and crowd of the main beach. I had a nice, comfy bed in a clean room that had more than enough space. WiFi was spotty, but they did warn us about this early on. They... More
