Clair was a great host, she arranged for airport pickup and drop offs which were convenient especially because we needed to take a boat from the airport to the island. The place was comfortable with air conditioning and was cleaned every day. Also, it's quiet because it's away from the main tourist area but only a 10 minute walk from D-Mall and White Beach which is where we spent most our time (and about 60-100 pesos for a tricycle ride to and from, depending on how busy the road is). Overall, I enjoyed my stay and recommend it to anyone who wants cheap accommodation but wants privacy (we chose this place over staying at a hostel).
1.Clair is very patient for every questions I have asked and quickly response. 2.The stuff in the reef retreat are very helpful during our staying. 3.The location has its good sides and bad sides, it took 10min to walk to S1 and Dmall, but a bit remote especially in the quiet night, better not too late to back to the hostel in the evening.4. But the hostel is right beside burabog beach where can see a amazing sunset view, you definitely need to wake up at 520 to walk out to see the sunset from the beach if you live in reef retreat, you won't regret it!5. The room is clean,big enough, with hot water, wifi, Air conditioning, refrigerator. 6. If you want to get a hangover in S1 or strol over the beach at night, it's better to choose the hostel located in S1 or 2.
