Stayed 5 ngts, and would absolutely recomend! Lovely family run resort complex. Partner is a diver and was impressed with the dive sites and standards. Superb house reef for snorkelling. Impressed with standards, rooms, staff, restauraunt menu, location, housekeeping, really much much better standards than we found in many other hotels in Philipines. Few miles drive/ tricycle from small resort... More

Overall, the experience was fantastic. At the outset, our expectation for our 2-day stay was that we would get a decent guided dive with some turtle and sardine interactions for Open Water Divers (Level 2). The dive experience exceeded expectations on three things: animal/coral variety, reef size, and service. As Open Water Divers, the general expectation is that the animal... More

We had a great 5 day stay at Turtle Bay and probably could have done 2 more days there. If you're here to snorkel, dive and enjoy the weather this is definitely the place to go. Like every hotel there are pros and cons but the pros far outweigh the cons on this one! In the end we would 100%... More

We stayed at Turtle Bay for about a week. There's nothing to complain about: stunning views, hospitality staff, clean and modern facilities, good food, beautiful swimming pool and cosy common area, etc. The dive shop definitely met our expectation. I took the OWD course here and the instructor (Ceejay), along with other dive guides were extremely helpful and made us... More

Bit of a goat track to get there, and a ways out of town.. However the hotel is lovely. Large pool, clean, nice rooms. the low pressure in the showers and no signal on the TV took some of the shine off.. Room 15 The staff are well meaning when you manage to locate them.. Reception, pool bar, dive shop,... More

January Dive Trip: 2 weeks on an 8 cabin live aboard dive boat with a large crew and 15 of your now best friends, makes one ready for a little quiet time. Our courteous boat crew dropped us in Cebu City, Cebu Island, Philippines. Our prearranged taxi picked us up for our week at Turtle Bay Dive Resort. The 3... More

My husband and I checked in for a week of diving and relaxing after two weeks on a liveaboard in Cebu area. Despite the 3 hour drive from Cebu to Moalboal with little to reassure us that our Western norms for food and plumbing would be met, we arrived at Turtle Bay to find clean, modern buildings. The resort is... More

The owners and their family made us feel welcome and catered to all of our needs. They have shuttles to dive with the whale sharks and their dive masters are very skilled in finding the best dive sites. I would recommend this resort to anyone that wants a great diving experience.

We visited Turtle Bay in November 2014 the day after a tropical storm went through. We had taken the ferry to Santander and waited for 1 1/2 hours for them to pick us up (we didn't have a working cell phone - so we thought). When we figured they weren't going to show, we finally figured out how to call... More
