A great location for Bulabog Beach. Definitely one of the better hotels on that side of the island. You do need to calibrate your expectations if you are looking for a true resort-like upscale Western hotel. If you want that style, then pick a place on White Beach, and be willing to pay for the upscale prices. If you want... More

If rooms here still available, no more doubt. That's the best of price-quality-place-service. We stayed here for 2 weeks. Every day they clean up a room. Room is really good: kitchen with all you need to kook and eat, TV (satellite), table with chairs, small sofa, air conditioner. Bedroom and bathroom are separate rooms. Nice and quiet and very green... 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!
