Loved this place Waking up to the sound of the water gently lapping on the rocks to then step into the clean clear water of Turtle Bay for a spot of snorkeling first thing in the morning was a perfect way to start the day. We were fortunate to have Pete who is an experienced diver holidaying at Turtle Bay... More

Transfer pre-arranged we were picked up by Enoch from the airport, a true gentleman, who offered to take us via the supermarket which we jumped at, having read here that town is some distance away. We were greeted by Matt, the owner, who we grew to know as fun loving, humorous and helpful and, as a bonus, the owner of... More

Turtle Bay Lodge was such a fantastic place to stay. Extremely friendly and helpful staff, beautiful dining facilities and fresh delicious food, beautiful rooms where you listen to the ocean as you sleep, snorkelling at your doorstep, incredible beaches close by, great kayaks to visit the blue holes and other near by Islands and attractions. And we were lucky enough... More

Our group of 10 stayed with Trent and Emma and all the wonderful staff - Delphine,Iris,Rachael, Annie, Freddie and many more, for 6 days in September. Our group was involved in setting up and resourcing a primary school library at nearby Palon school. No request for help and assistance to help us complete our project was too much for the... More

Trent & Emma were the perfect host. They were helpful and very knowledgeable. The lodge has coral reefs right out the front which provides great snorkling. The restaurant has lovely food with a wide variety to choose from. We ate most of our meals at a large table right at the water's edge. It was like a private resort- there... More

We stayed at Turtle Bay Resort in July 2014 and were completely relaxed and happy the whole of the 4 days we were there. My husband marched out every morning bird watching and also snorkelled off the reef with the beautiful tropical fish. Our 18 year old daughter was unwell so missed out on the snorkelling but did swim in... More

For me to write a great review i need to get a good nights sleep. Unfortunately we had a few problems with mattresses as the single ones were just thin foam ones ( which would be great for kids but not for middle aged women) and staff had to make a few changes which was just putting one ontop of...
