We hadn't been for a while but the place still kept it's lovely charm. Absolutely wonderful. Friendly staff, great beach and hot tub. Even a bit of rain doesn't spoil the atmosphere. Would recommend, and have, to all our friends. We will be back again soon.

My first visit was in the early 90's as I'd heard about this tropical paradise with it's own private secluded beach. I took with me a very dear friend, who wasn't well at the time, and we were put in those shockingly beautiful beachfront apartments. Our stay even back then was as warm and as welcoming as it is today.... More

This is our fourth annual visit to Turtle Cove, the experience has been just as good this time to make us want to return each year. Whilst the overall facilities are somewhat dated, this is by far made up for by the friendly and relaxing atmosphere, the caring staff and access to what must be one of the best beaches... More

I enjoyed my time at the resort. It was relaxing. Staff members are very friendly. There is a very cute bar tender. It is a bit far (15 minutes drive) from Port Douglas especially if you are not driving. That makes day tour a bit early.

Very friendly, great location with a good private beach and lovely pool area, good food and good rooms. What more could one ask for in a gay resort. The staff go out of their way to make one feel welcome.
