Had great stay at Turtle Bay, Thanks to Trent and Emma who went the extra mile, ( left the phone behind and forwarded to our next destination.) Pass on big thanks to Isaac and Freddy for their hospitality.

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...

Trent and Emma are lovely managers, very helpful and their dogs and kids are cute. The resort is not cute. It has no beach and all rooms have common walls. The food is slow but you can just order ahead. People seemed to love the above ground pool but I wanted to be in the sea. The snorkelling around the... More

We had 4 nights at the Turtle Bay Resort and loved our time here. Trent and Emma made all the difference, interacting with their guests and ensuring all felt welcome. They were interested in how our days had gone and arranged our tours proficiently, even though they did not receive any commission on the tours. Yes, the meals took a... More
