tucked away in its own pocket. airy and very very clean rooms. great service with a smile! nice garden. good location. right next to all the water-sport joints, restaurants. a few mellow bars within 2-5mins walk. quiet idyllic side of island. charlot at front desk is most hospitable! a nice change of scenery from white beach!!
Nice place to stay!”
The staff is friendly, room is clean and nice,just 1 mins walk you can see the ocean & feel the breeze;and 10-15 minutes walk to Dmall!Very convenient & quiet,i will recommend anyone who wants to visit Boracay to stay here!
+ : - Nice staff - close to kitesurfing Beach - Away from busy white beach - : Construction work on going in front No free bottle of water daily No restaurant
Pleasant stay, but bad location due to the ongoing construction ”
Our room was really nice! We had everything we needed! It was even possible to cook there, the offered pots and pans. Also the staff was really friendly and helping. But despite all that, the ongoing constructions in front of the hotel are really annoying! The entire beach is stuffed with sewer pipes, they destroyed a lot of resorts and the whole Boracay is a mess. I wouldn’t recommend one to go there.
Wonderful place with such friendly staff”
Was a lovely place to stay, pretty grounds, rooms were clean & beds so comfy which when staying 8 nights were very grateful. Mini bar stocked everyday & staff on hand to order tricycles in the day. Beach not very nice as only really meant for kite surfing but 150 pesos away on a trike is White beach which is beautiful & fulll if bars & restaurants,. D-mall with all the shops are also in the same location. In the whole had a lovely time & will certainly recommend it to others.
nice place close to the windsurf and kite beach”
very nice and Kind staff. Aircon is too loud, so you really have to decide for the cold or the calm. The remaining facilities are nice and romantic. Be Aware, that booking through Agoda doesn't make it possible to have a Reservation for a double or twin room. this will be given upon availability
It's not the Sheraton, but....”
Great location away from the hussle of white beach, quiet and out of the way. I stayed in the deluxe suite for about 2100 P per night, I think this is quiet season price. The room was spacious, with kitchenette, large bathroom, seperate bedroom with queen bed. Very relaxed. Staff were fantastic, with special thanks to Angel. Only negative is wall mounted aircon a little noisy. Would definitely stay again
Nice quiet place”
Reef retreat is located on Bolabog beach which is not the favored beach to go swim, but in July it is a good beach to do activities. However, it is a 10 minutes walk to the white beach which is very crowded. This can be seen as a bad and as a good thing, its a bit further from action, but that also means that you a more peaceful location. There is nothing going on nearby the hotel at night which we enjoyed. The room size was very comfortable, the kitchenette was perfectly functionnal and there were all the tools we needed readily available. However, the couch is rather uncomfortable and the bed is average at best. If you did not turn the fan on as well as the AC, it was quite hot to sleep because the bed is upstairs and the AC doesn't get there. The bathroom is nice, but the hot water is merely warm. The staff was very helpful and always nice.
Cool room layout”
Karima was really helpful during our stay. Room was made up fast during our lunch time. However, the room was humid even though the air con and fan was switched on. there's no shuttle service so you gotta make your way to D'mall on your own and back.
Friendly & Attentive Staff!”
The only thing about the stay that was posing an issue was the temperature of the A/C. Reef Retreat Resort is really a great stay if you are into kite surfing as it was along the Bulabog Beach. Staff are really attentive and responsive! Thanks Karima!
A week of paradise”
I loved the location of this hotel. It wasn't on the busy White Beach but on the windy beach full of kite surfers. It is only a short (and interesting) walk to the main beach - past some quirky bars and delicious traditional restaurants. The staff were friendly and helped arrange a blind massage for us (OW!) and kept our bags until we needed to leave. There is even a small library to use in the check in area. If you were into kite surfing then it would be ideal...if you're not - it's great fun to watch!
Boracay Island - the ultimate destination...”
I have never meet an extra helpful and friendly staff before. RRR is amazing as well. Hidden from the prying eyes of other people. Not everyone on the island recognizes the place which can be an advantage. The place is safe and silent. Overall experience was great.
Very comfortable hotel with friendly staff”
My husband and I went to Boracay for vacation and stayed at the Reef Retreat Resort for 7 days in July. It's a very quiet hotel, with 15 minutes walk to the D mall and the white beach. When it's raining we had to walk through some big puddles, but you can take a tricycle if you want to keep your feet dry and that's what we did. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. We were very satisfied.
One of the best places for a couple's retreat”
The place is perfect for a honeymoon retreat for couples. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The bed is ok. The TV is small but there's cable. The air-conditioning unit is less than 1 hp but with the ceiling fan turned on, the room temperature was just right. Water sports facilities and equipment are right outside the resort. Of course, since this is more of a retreat place rather than a full hotel, there's no restaurant, no pool, and if it's late at night, no transpo to the white beach side. When it rains, don't bother walking to the other side of the island where all the good restos are. All in all, I was able to relax and had a rejuvenating stay. Well worth my money and the resort is exactly as advertised- a retreat resort.
Comfortable and pleasant experience.”
From start to finish the staff bent over backwards to make the stay a pleasant one. Located on the quiet Bulabog beach, Reef Retreat is ideal for couples. White Beach is about a 10-15 minute walk. Trips can be organised thorough the hotel. Though there are no dining options at the hotel itself there are a few decent places for breakfast and dinner nearby. Mini-bar is well stocked and prices are similar to shops and bars, which is ace. Watching the sunrise on Bulabog is a must and the hotel is ideally located for this. Overall I was very impressed by the hotel and would definitely recommend to those who don’t mind walking a little bit to get to places.
"A Peaceful Stay In The Heart of Boracay"”
My husband and I really appreciate our stay in Reef Resort, though we're in Boracay and am really expecting our stay to be a loud one coz of the night life there. But apparently im wrong! Coz the place is peaceful and I really love it! Looking forward to stay again with the kids!
If you don't mind staying at the back beach then this quaint hotel is a good place to stay in! There are near by small restaurants, convenience store and a spa too. Plus if you're in to surfing, kite and wind surfing then this hotel is also for you.
Cosy hotel & friendly staffs.”
Overall our stay was pretty good it a good location is your are into kiteboarding or surf if you prefer the white beach this isn't a good location because there walking distance is abour 10-15 minute and the street to walk out is abit dark. but the staff Charlot is really helpful.It located right infront of the Bulabog beach.
The best location for Kite Boarding”
This place was recommended to me by a friend who stayed there. It's fantastically located if you are looking to Kite board. I took lessons with Ocean Republic which is literally on the door step of the hotel. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and friendly. The room was nicely decorated and every room comes with a balcony and chairs which you will find hard getting out of! The garden is a nice touch as you really feel as if you're in your back yard, this place felt very homely. The hotel doesn't have a kitchen, but there are 2 great places to eat 30 seconds walk away. My mornings would start at the Japanese restaurant on the corner above the convenience store. they have western and japanese food. Opposite is a local restaurant a real favorite for all those who visit it. The owner is also super friendly. I was really happy with my choice and would recommend this place to single and couple travellers. It is about 7mins walk to White beach, so you can go crazy over there and still come home to peace and quiet.
best place to stay if you want to surf”
clean room, cosy, all you need, hideaway from the strong wind but several steps if you need to know the wind changes and knots 10 min walk to the white beach and dmall located right behind the kitesurf school 'ocean breeze' with excellent staff Food not available in the retreat
