Beautiful hidden little gem, so relaxing it's like escaping your reality, the only down fall I think is the limited menu for dinner and breakfast there is only 3 options for dinner and were around the $31 mark and all three were something I don't eat, breakfast was just cereals etc which I also couldn't eat as there was only...

Turtle Cove is half way between Port Douglas and Cairns and as such it is remote enough to feel like you have your own private slice of paradise! We stayed the first week of April (a quieter time) and were surprised and delighted to have an upgrade from a Garden View twin to sinle beachfront villas! Thanks so much to... More

As usual turtle cove was great. Not a lot of guest, but enough to have people to meet and great at the table of a night.. Meals where huge and very tasty. Rooms where clean and comfortable. Staff handling all our needs. Overall a nice relaxing stay. Just what was needed..

Great staff, comfortable accommodations, excellent food, and wonderful clothing-optional beach. International and local guests always interesting - the communal "Turtle table" for dinner is a must for anyone new to Turtle Cove - a good way to meet the guests. Be aware of box-jellyfish restrictions which make ocean swimming potentially hazardous in Queensland during the summer season. The pool and... More

A sexy, intimate resort in an absolutely oustanding setting on a huge private beach. Nice large hot tub and swimming pool. However, do not expect to go swimming in the Coral Sea due to box jellyfish stings at certain times of the year, like March. Relaxed atmosphere and good food--especially lunch and dinner. Having your own car is recommended to... More

My partner and I had our second trip to TC recently - Friday through Monday. Despite threats of a cyclone, we managed to lie in the sun and go in the pool every day. We had a really relaxing time walking on the beach after breakfast and before dinner. We also made some great new friends and had lots of... More

Had a great time visiting, will be back again for sure. Pleasantly surprised with great food and excellent service. Property is a solid 4-star , nothing too fancy , but lots of fun , a gorgeous bit of scenery , and an easy 15 min drive to Port Douglas.

We are a gay male couple and we stayed for two nights at Turtle Cove in March 2014. From being picked up at the airport, to the friendly and accommodating staff to the beautiful meals and the amazing beach and sociable guests, we felt our stay was worth it. We would highly recommend the beachfront villas for the comfort and... More
