A beautiful hotel located near the kite surfer area. Quiet and serene surroundings. Short walk to D-Mall and the white sand beach area where the bars and restaurants are. Each day the hotel staff would clean the rooms and provide daily artistic towel images on the bed in the shape of swan, elephant etc. Only negative was the wifi service... More

If you'll go to surf in Boracay, Reef Retreat is a very nice place for staying. If you don't like activities, you can stay there because price for room not expensive, but you need to go to another beach by foot about 10 min.

Stayed in twin room for 6 nights and was perfect for what we wanted. Very short 5-10min walk to the action on the main beach and to D'mall. We liked being so close but also liked coming home to the quiet side of the island. Would be perfect for kite surfers as the beach is at your door. Good service,... More

This is perfect because you are a 10-15 min walk from busy station 2. So you can still get the party in. But when you want to sleep you are on the quiet side of the island. If you like kite surfing or wind surfing this is the place to go. The owners are very knowledgable in the sports and... More

My friend and I stayed at Reef Retreat Resort for 4 days and 3 nights. The rooms were pristine, the ambiance was really quiet and relaxing. It was a great place to take a break from the hustle and bustle of city living. A few steps away from the resort is the kite surfing area which was fun to watch.... More

My wife and I stayed at Reef Retreat for 19 nights over Christmas and New Years and enjoyed every minute of our stay. We chose this place because we wanted to kiteboard in the area.

It is a nice and quiet place just 20 meters from the kite beach. I've stayed here for two weeks and enjoyed it. Location is good especially for kitesurfers, but it's only 7-10 minutes walk from the white beach / d'mall, so feel free to bring your non-sporty friends with you. There is a good kite station nearby so you... More

Reef Retreat is a great place to stay on Bulabog beach. The staff, especially Karima from the front desk, are very friendly and helpful. The property is 20m off Bulabog beach with a kiteschool in front and a supermarket as well as some places to have breakfast/lunch/dinner close by. To Whitebeach/DMall it is a 10-15min walk. Our room was of... More
