            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.

            only good if u are a kite surfer or kite boarder or just single wanting to hang out with these folks and watch. beach not as beautiful or clean as white beach. toilet did not flush and therefore looked dirty all the time. only one manager on duty during daytime and so she will needs to be called after hours for anything. no extra amenities so bring soaps, shampoo etc. very nice staff and especially impressed with how Michelle handles everything on her own. if you enjoy community dwelling this is good since you can see everyone from your balcony.

            OK, but...”
            Too many aspects of the room itself were disappointing, so on the whole I would not recommend staying: - The worst bed I’ve slept on in a long time. A thin soft matress on rock hard concrete. A mat on the ground on a campsite offers more comfort as your bed than this one. - The air conditioning cannot be run when you are not in the room. As much as I support the environmental considerations to save energy: even in not the hottest season the room feels like a sauna each time you return to it. Plus the AC is so weak and badly positioned that it never effectively cools down the room. All in all these two factors combined did not allow me to sleep well. - Some amenities are provided, but some simple and cheap things are not, e.g. shampoo. Not a disaster clearly, but other hotels in this price range offer more in my experience. On the positive side: friendly staff, quiet location but yet within easy walking distance to the main spots on Boracay.

            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

            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

            Quietness, room size, kitchenette
            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.

            The Staff. Location on the Beach Road. Proxiimity to Kite and Windsurf schools
            The staff, and management were brilliant. They arranged a meet and greet pick up from Caticlan Airport and delivered us to the hotel. Throughout our stay they remained friendly and extremely helpful. Note that this is a room only stay ... The room was as described, with a sort of Tropical Romantic feel. But, felt that the room was a little on the small side, and the decor a little bit dark. Everything worked just fine. WiFi was a bit finicky ... closer to the office the better. Two bad things: 1/ The mattress, not good at all. I wonder if I'll ever walk straight again? - which wasn't helped by ... 2/ Cockerels and dogs - Crowing and yelping what seemed like all night long (Bear in mind though that this will not be the only property affected by this!)It just seems part of life here. Apart from these two, the only other minor inconvenience was having to go out for breakfast every day. For the younger crowd on a budget kiting or wind surfing in the season. I think it would a have a great atmosphere.

            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!

            Not bad. Location is on the 'other' side of the island. So it's just less than 10 mins to get to the beach. Not that far but there are so many hotels that are closer. Facilities are fine. Lots of kitesurfing going on nearby so seems perfect for that.

            friendly staff, location, rooms
            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!

            quiet, near the beach, reasonable rate
            The room is nice but just the aircon is noisy and not cold. Also, the fan is not working properly (unadjustable speed). Would be better if the management also provides simple meal. The way to the entrance (near the beach) of the resort is very dark, need to use torch at night time, would be better if they put on some lights
