We stayed for 5 nights in May and loved Turtle inn very much. We were in the last villa on the beach front. This felt very private and had our own beach area with no one walking by. We loved the open air feel of the villa. We slept with the louvers open and let the fresh breeze in and... More

First off let me say that the staff is amazing. They were always kind, responsive and very helpful. I don't think I've ever experienced such friendly staff. I was travelling with my family and being able to share the same cottage was a huge bonus. The rooms are comfortable and relaxing. I loved not having televisions in the rooms. Breakfast... More

We just came back from six fantastic days at the Turtle Inn and for the first time since we travel, I felt I needed to share this great experience. We had booked a beach front villa for the six of us and stayed there for the first night: amazing setting fantastic view and service.But we were happily surprised when the... More

This place is amazing. We are staying nearby and just dropped in for lunch and some poolside drinks. Lunch was delicious with lobster ceviche and the smoked fish salad. The signature drinks were lovely as well. As many have mentioned, it really the service that makes this place a step above. Raul made us feel so welcomed and taken care... More

It was our third trip to Turtle Inn...this was for my 50th birthday celebration. I love TI and the understated elegance of the place. It is low key with great food and wonderful service on a very nice stretch of beach( although erosion was a problem on last visit). Not for every palate but suits us and our guests all... More

There is not enough space to gush about our experience at Turtle Inn! Everything from the location and atmosphere (even though it was off-season!), to the food and signature cocktails only made by Caesar; but most importantly the service. Everyone here is what made our trip truly special. Being greeted by name from day 1 to the desk staff going... More

There is something very wrong with this place. We arrived at noon and left at 4 pm the same day. While the website and our travel agent told us this place was "rustic luxury", what we found was rundown disrepair. The overall ambiance was one of melancholy. The beach is virtually non-existent and what little there is clogged with seaweed... More

I am truly sorry to read this review - especially since I am traveling and not physically there to have met you. I am glad to hear my staff was gracious and assisted you to get you to a neighboring property. A wood and thatch resort come along with some needed projects from time to time and we therefore decided... More

Francis Ford Coppola was once quoted as saying, "A number of images put together a certain way become something quite above and beyond what any of them are individually," which is perfectly executed at Turtle Inn. From the large thatched roof entrance way to the detailed carvings of the wooden furniture, flown in from Bali, every piece of Turtle Inn... More

My husband and I spent June 22-June 25, 2015 in C-5 Coconut cottage seafront just steps away from the sea and poolside. We couldn't ask for a more perfect location! Service was top notch. One night we requested dinner on our screened porch and it was perfect. If you like you can even request it on the beach if weather... More

We just returned from Turtle Inn where we spent four days after spending our first three days at Blancaneaux Lodge. My family was looking to do something different (Blancaneaux) and then decompressing at a beach resort. We definitely found that at Turtle Inn. The staff was simply excellent. Our check-in experience with Raylee could not have been any better...and she... More
