We stayed at Turtle Bay resort for 6 nights. 5 nights we stay in a cheaper room, one night in a room with kichenette. We liked both, but in second we can prepare coffe and tea and there were much better chairs in balcony to enjoy the see view. Rooms were simple, a little bit tired, but comfortable and clean....

Turtle Bay Lodge has a great pool, excellent location and relaxed and friendly staff. The outside decking and seating was great, and just what I wanted. We kayaked to Oyster island but preferred the quiet of our accommodation.

We have just spent a week with Skye and Dianne at Turtle Bay and had a great time. These 2 make you feel very welcome and anything you need done big or small is not a problem. Their team are also very happy to help out wherever possible. The rooms are 20 meters from the the water so you can... More

We enjoyed our four night stay. The room was spacious and had a kitchenette so we could prepare our own breakfast. The porch offered ocean views. The managers, Skype and Diane, were very friendly and helpful and went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. The rest of the staff were really friendly. The grounds are well cared for...

We stayed at beautiful Turtle Bay resort for 6 nights and had an excellent time. The rustic, island-style lodge offers a variety of different rooms on an affordable level. We loved relaxing in the landscaped water-side gardens. Although Turtle Bay is about 25 minutes from Luganville, the resort has a reliable driver who is always happy to transport you into... More

We had a lovely stay here and were extremely impressed by the owners' hospitality. Their love and enthusiasm for the place was contagious! And in such a beautiful spot it was easy to see why. We hired a double kayak and paddled off to Matevulu Blue Hole which was simply stunning. A really enjoyable journey too. Our room was extremely... More

Very nice lodge, not impacted at all by cyclone Pam (like all of Santo island). The location is beautiful, the food is great, the people are nice. And the reef in front of the lodge is just incredible !

Traveled to Santos and stayed 3 nights at this resort. Not damaged by cyclone but suffering because of perception all of Vanuatu was damaged. Location on the beach ensured cool breezes, sound of waves to go to sleep and handy and interesting reef for snorkeling within 25 metres. Rooms equivalent Aust 31/2 star, screened, comfortable beds, effective shower, clean with... More

From the moment we walked into Turtle Bay Lodge we felt very welcomed by the staff and received a refreshing drink which was heaven after our long flight. Walking outside to the eating area we were amazed at how beautiful it looked with different types of seating areas and all lit up. We stayed at Turtle Bay for 1 week... More

As we were the first group to visit after cyclone Pam when phones and internet were down , for some reason my review has not been posted up on this site. I apologise as we had an incredibly relaxing 6 dates stay at Turtle Bay and pretty well can say to Justine P ( the previous contributor). I thought I... More
