I definitely agree with the few reviewers who've said it's overpriced and simple. It's almost impossible to understand how this place has earned such a high rating! First, the staff are very friendly and helpful. That is true. They're lovely people. But it takes more than nice people to make a hotel worth it! This place is extremely overpriced.. We... More

We visited this hotel in April of 2105 arriving around the 2nd of April.The Turtle Inn Boracay,is well located- a really manageable walk from the incredibly beautiful White Beach. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly,offered a welcome drink and then shown to our room. We were impressed with how scrupulously tidy our room was- crisp linen, a well-stocked bar fridge... More

The Turtle Inn offers the best of both worlds: close enough to the beach to afford frequent water play and far enough from the beach to afford needed retreat. The contrast between the two worlds is refreshing, each experience sweetening the other. Chilling on the balcone of your room is an experience in and of itself. Shaded by palm trees... More

The hotel was quaint but simple. The rooms are fairly basic with an en suite bathroom and mini bar also. Sometimes the toilet has a back feed and needs to be flushed twice, and the power to the resort has suffered from several failures, however these are both features of being on an island. The resort does provide a back-up... More

In Europe the word Resort create certain expectation of the structure but it is likely that in Philippines have different meaning. The complex is located in a peripheral part of the island, anyway in a quite and nice location. When I entered in the resort I have seen the dining hall full of plastic seats and tables, then going to... More

I had booked Turtle Inn when I visited Boracay in April 2015 for 9N/10D, checked in on 22nd Apr through 02May, but my good experience starts from the time I started the online booking and communicating with the hotel, Jeny was superb from the start, she kept in touch, confirmed all the details for the room and flight. Jess was... More

Before our trip to Boracay, the hotel was chosen based on review ratings on booking.com and trip advisor. However, upon arrival, the hotel was genuinely a disappointment which we failed to comprehend why such a place would deserve the ratings it receives. The hotel has worn out reception, substandard room and inaccessibility to the beach which involves a dirty back... More

Located just a short walk off the beach, Turtle Inn is a treasure. For what you pay for you get a beautiful room (where the towels are shaped into a different animal or flower each day), a nice breakfast and excellent service. Really nothing troubles the staff, they are all so friendly! There is also a delightful little white dog... More

We ended up booking this hotel late-we were traveling during Lunar New Year and wanted to do a dive trip, and many places were full. However, we were so glad we found it. Quiet location, just a couple minutes walk from the beach, dive shops and busy restaurants. Turtle Inn is family run-everyone on staff was kind and helpful, and... More

We’re finally getting around to rating the Turtle Inn. The most recent stay of 13 nights was our 5th stay at the Turtle Inn, 5 years in a row! One question, why have we come back to the Turtle Inn? It actually feels like coming home, the staff are fantastic, the meals are great and the price is right! The... More
