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

We stayed here for about 5 nights from Dec 27-Jan 1 and had a great time. We came to Moalboal mostly for the chance to go diving with whale sharks in Oslob and seeing as most of the accomodations in Oslob did not have diving capabilities, went with Turtle Bay as they offered the whale shark diving service. Moalboal is... More

Look no further for the best dive resort in Moalboal! They offer reasonably priced dive packages around Moalboal and Oslob, and the dive master was patient, professional, and approachable. The BCDs and regulators that we rented were in great condition. The resort was well-maintained and it was a pleasant stay. The room we stayed in (deluxe sea view) was simple... More

The resort is very beautifully done up and has a great view of the turquoise blue waters. The design of the resort is a little dated (and even found a magazine dated year 2000), but if you like rustic / old charm, this would be pretty perfect. There are two gazebos with outdoor seating for you to just stare out... More
