The beauty of Davao City is that when you want to have a dose of Vitamin Sea, Samal Island is just a few minutes away. And Isla Reta is one of the best destinations for an overnight camping beside the beach. It is very affordable to stay here. And what is more laudable is that students are hired for the... More

The place is nice and wide enough for outdoor activities, but some of the staff are not accommodating. There's a time we're on the Dining area watching Television and then suddenly turned off by one of the staff without Prior Notice not only TV as well as the Lights. it's very offensive for us. All of the People there are... More

I have been in Isla Reta twice. First it was my birthday and the second one was when I and my friends at work filed for a vacation leave. All my experience in Isla Reta was great and awesome! Isla Reta is one of the best beaches in the Samal for me. No words can describe its beauty. Aside from... More

Went here last November 20, 2015. I've been to Samal Island for more than a couple of times already but I can say that this beach is one the best in Davao area. The pristine beach of Talicud Island is as beautiful as the beaches of Palawan - white sand and clear blue waters. Its just an hour away from... More

We went here in November, 2015. Going here from Manila was a breeze. We were supposed to stay here for 1 night only, and ended up staying for 3 nights. This resort is very well maintained. The staff are very friendly. And its relaxing to know that they care about their guest's security. We stayed in their concrete room. It... More

This is an island resort 1.5 hr boat trip from Davao. You can go there for few hours or few days. Two boats a day get there from Davao each day. Beautiful beach, lots of tree near the sea providing shade and a great place for snorkelling, swimming or diving. There are three types of overnight accommodations: brick houses, local... More

We went here on a Friday for a day tour just to kill time before we go to Pearl Farm the next day. From tunes hotel, it was just a few mins taxi ride going to the wharf to Talicud Island. We were able to catch the 9am bangka ride (which departed around 9:30) and arrived Talicud Island before 11am.... More

We went there on October 8, 2015. Our trip to Isla Reta didn't go exactly as we planned it because the first boat scheduled at 9:00 am was cancelled. It's probably because it was a Thursday and there were only a few passengers. So we got on the boat leaving at 12:00 nn. We waited for 3 hours at Sta.... More

This resort is best for travelers on a tight budget but still prefer a high standard view. The sand is finer and whiter than Boracay. It isn't too big, so it's just perfect for a family or barkada bonding. Will come back here soon... Just a heads up! The water in their shower room is also salty. I guess their... More
