“Good value and friendly for couples and families.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We arranged a transfer ahead of arrival which is a good idea as from Caticlan it's a tuk tuk , ferry then tuk tuk ride. Station 3 is the quiet end of town, bars and clubs about 20 mins away. Hotel drink on arrivals, very friendly staff at all times, really helpful and smiling. Manager/owner very nice , gave us lots of local advice about places to go and helped us reconfirn our flights back. Hotel itself is fine, lots of stairs so it you have mobility issues, not the pace for you. Family friendly, no sleazy types hanging about and the hotel dog is a hits with kids and adults, very cute, breakfast was extra but cooked well and tasted great. Fab mango smoothies. Room was very clean, good size but basic, missing a few things like a phone, extra pillows etcnbutnim sure you could get that on request. Room above bar but had great sleep all nights. Good budget place if you want somewhere with friendly atmosphere a little way off from the nightlife...

Loved staying at this hotel.

The staff are really really friendly.

I was there in the wet season and after breakfast would sit and read until the rain cleared. They were very attentive and keep topping me up with coffee.

The rooms are very spacious and very clean.

Nothing is too much trouble and you do feel part of the family.

The hotel is 5 minutes from the beach which has the advantage that it is quite at night.

The hotel was simple but well designed and an amazing sense of attention to detail cannot fault the staff or the environment. The location and proximity to Boracay was the best we could have wished for. Boracay is such an amazing place and this hotel sets it off perfectly with it's discrete charm and lack of pretension. Staff were polite, friendly and attentive.

This was my 4th stay at the Turtle Inn, this time of year is wet season which I was fully expecting, as usual I was greeted with a very warm welcome which is bestowed on all arrivals. I have written a review for each visit and have exhausted my accolades for this establishment.
Bottom line...............
If you need something ask and if they do not have it they will advise you where it is available
Want to have an adventure ask and Turtle will help
Need a towel for the beach ask and there it is free (other places will put a fee on your bill)
Need an umbrella if its rainy provided free
Buy some fresh seafood ask Sharlen to cook it for you (small fee does apply)
Need a trik Jun or Jessie will arrange for you
Confirm flights, need a guide, rough idea on what to pay for something ask.
Sharlen will not like that I am telling you this but if you do not speak Filippino she will teach you some valuable words to use while ordering or buying goods
Remember not far from the action if you want the night life, but nice and quite for that sleep in or early night after a big day out
Last of all book direct with Jeny via email and get the best deal, unfortunately some of the booking agents misrepresent pricing.

To Jeny, Marilyn and all the Staff thanks again see you next year

JUST STAY THERE MAD IF YOU DON'T

Had a perfect christmas-holliday at this hotel. Stayed 6 days in a superiorroom and loved the very large balcony. Rooms are not anything special, but they are spotless clean. The best thing about this place is the friendly service - loved that coffee and tea are delivered to your balcony early in the morning:) will definately be back some day.

Arrived at the hotel around 7pm. The footpath leading to the hotel is quite dark at night. But, still safe to walk. From the hotel to white beach is only 5 minutes on foot. Hotel staff is polite and helpful in providing information. Restaurant serves nice filipino food. Overall is a good stay.
