This place is a true home away from home. The resort is secluded from the rest of the residential areas. Its very quiet, with well designed and maintained landscaped setting. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Well equipped dive shop. I was lucky to do my PADI diving certification course at this paradise set up. CJ is a knowledgeable PADI... More

This trip exceeded any of my family expectations. The owners and the staff made us feel like at home. No wish was too much! When the family room was booked at the same time when we were doing our booking, they upgraded us to the suite (lovely!). The staff is very attentive, but not "in your face." Plenty of spaces...

The family who owns the resort is friendly and super accommodating. The staff is wonderful too. The resort does not have a beach but there's a jetty with steps and the kids were happy jumping off it, and into the clear blue waters! The rooms have your basic needs with beautiful wood furniture and the bathrooms are big and clean..... More

When booking the resort via the Web, the owners Chris and Faye were prompt replying to emails. We arrived at the Resort about 1.00am and were surprised when the staff came out with a welcome drink. The Accommodation was overall comfortable with air conditioning and ceiling fan. The beds were harder than we are used to. The bathrooms were good... More

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
