We just came from a whale shark dive in Oslob and decided to stay overnight at Turtle Bay before heading back to the city. We were told by the receptionist That they only accept foreigners not locals! When I explained that I am although I look local Filipina I am from Australia, the receptionist then said that they don't accept... 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

It's quite overwhelming reading a sincere response from one of our guests and this is what we truly want. Thank you for noticing our effort to make sure that our guest would witness the magnificent beauty of seeing the ocean at its finest. Yes, we are working on seeing more of these views and we hope you can visit us... More

Turtle bay dive resort This is a resort, make no mistake it is out of the way down a goat track so if you want to leave and go to other restaurants or dive shops you need transport. This can be arranged by resort, we found the transport basic but the driver of the trike was always within 5 minutes... More

First and foremost, this is a dive resort and not a beach resort (i.e. not beach front). The resort is laid out in a beautiful sprawling tropical garden setting. It has a pool that was nice to get into after a full day of dives just to relax. The rooms were average sized and beds were comfortable enough. Food and... More

We stayed at Turtle Bay in March 2014 and overall had a lovely time. The resort is very well maintained and the everywhere is clean and tidy. We had a room in the annex and it was lovely but we could have used a mini bar/fridge. Also, it would have been nice to have an information book in the room... More

I'll start with the positives: 1. Great snorkeling of the resort. 2. Grounds/foliage is well maintained. 3. Resort's backyard...picturesque! That's it!!!!! Negatives: 1. Dishonesty of the owner. I understand that it's owned by a husband and wife. We only corresponded with the husband. I.e. When we booked the hotel, he stated that he would meet our group. He didn't. All... More

Thank you for your comments. I'm sorry that we did not meet in person so that i could handle your complaints on the spot.

Resort Accommodation: The room was simple but very nice and clean room. there's no problem for us how much the cost of each room. We admired the landscape design of the resort. it is working well with texture & colour and selecting the right plant for the right place. The herb gardens are practical, yet pleasant to view.

We spent 5 day during Xmas time. The resort is nice, rooms are not very big, but clean. Food is good and more than enough. The only problem is the staff: they are all very nice and helpful, but they are not enough to manage the whole resort. So nobody is at the pool bar for hours, during the meal... More

Stayed there for four nights, the room is clean and their staff are warm and helpful. Food was nice and we have grilled seafood dinner on our last day. The dive centre is just next door and our dive master RJ who double up as our guide was great too, we did a total of 9 dive.
