Reef Retreat was everything we could have asked for and more. Great location, the rooms were beautiful and cleaned daily with a supply of fresh towels and linen. The security guard and staff were very lovely and always happy to help give advice and book excursions. The best part about this retreat is the owners. Matt and Clair have lived... More

Loved staying at reef retreat resort (we stayed for just under a week)! Location is great - peaceful and relaxed, just set back from the beach. Easy to get to white beach -either a short walk or a quick and cheap Tricycle. Rooms were beautiful - very clean with fresh linen and towels. Beds were very comfortable and bathroom was... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend, dad and sister in March and had the most amazing holiday. The Reef Retreat owners Matt and Clair greeted us as we arrived and they're very friendly and helped us a lot during our stay. They told us the best places to go around the island. The resort is in a beautiful location overlooking... More

Reef retreat is a quiet and chilled resort right on the beachfront. Rooms are spacious and clean, bed is comfortable and the rooms' balconies are definitely a plus! The staff is really nice and always available to help and the room cleaning is impeccable. No restaurant or common area on the resort but plenty of options just next doors!

Very friendly and helpful crew. Really clean and reactive maintenance service. A kind and attentive nightguard. Beautiful rooms and well located, close to the windsurfing and kitting spots. Absolutely quiet and a comfortable bed. We really enjoyed our stay.

I stayed during the Chinese new year and paid 100 USD per night for a clean, nice room with a small bath. For a usual room (without pool and breakfast) it´s definitive too expensive. During my holiday I compared with several travelers and each of them paid less for more performance. Nevertheless, the staff was amazing friendly, the mini bar... More

I hadn't visited Boracay for 3 years before now, but upon returning it felt like coming back home with the same great atmosphere as the previous time I was here. It is still without doubt the premier location for any windsurfer/kitesurfer as you are literally a stones throw away from the beach meaning you never miss a moment of action.... More
