“Excellent Service, Quality and Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

Went there right after the Typhoon Haiyan, and although they were slightly affected by the typhoon, my gf and i enjoyed our stayed for all 4 nights. There is a slight walk from the beach but its just a short 2-5 mins walk. If you enjoy the peace and quiet, this is the place! (No noisy tourists at least when we were there) The staff is definitely the highlight of this Resort, they will go the extra mile for your needs. Jeny and her staff deserve my utmost Respect, making us feel so welcomed with their hospitality. We had breakfast there on one of your days there, and their Omelette is something everyone should give a try! Definitely going back to Turtle Inn for our next trip to Borocay.

Just returned from Borocay and The Turtle Inn was our 2nd abode. Have to admit the walk up the coven of alleyways to find the place was a bit off putting but upon arrival were greeted by the friendly staff with a welcome drink and NewYork the dog seeing if we had any spare bits of bacon lying around.
This is about a 5 minute walk from the beach and maybe 7 minutes from main road so situated perfectly between the two. Rooms were clean, shower worked fine, food and drink was available when required. Not the most luxurious place I've ever stayed but nothing wrong with it at all, very friendly staff, rooms cleaned every day and perfect for a base for our group to either hit the beach of station 3or tuc tuc it to the stations 1 or 2.

My wife and I stayed here for part of the time on a 10 day trip to Boracay. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the food was good, and the rooms were spotless. I think you would be very hard pressed to find somewhere better for the price. The only thing that might have been better was the location. It is a five minute walk to the beach down a back road which is not bad, but I think I would have preferred somewhere right on the beach. It was a minor issue for me, and compared to how good everything else was there, it should probably be overlooked. It is an extremely comfortable place to stay and I highly recommend it.

This was our first time in Boracay. We chose the Turtle Inn based on reviews here on Tripadvisor. So we would like to write our own review of our experience here at the Turtle Inn. If you're looking for a place that is very welcoming this is where you should stay. Felt as if we were staying at someone's home because the staff were so friendly an accommodating. Ate Jeny (manager) helped us with whatever we needed (transportation, activities and suggestions of places to go).
Our room was a good sized room with enough drinking water in stock that we didn't have to buy them from outside.
Just a few suggestions to Turtle Inn. Maybe an extra trash bin inside the room instead of one in the bathroom would be of help. They are working on a communication system so you can call for room service. No phones in rooms as of yet. But to make up for this, the staff is always accessible when needed.
We definitely would stay here again. Hope this helps. Thanks

Room Tip: If you can't go up a flight of stairs, Choose a room on the lower floors. The rooms on top have...

This was my fifth stay at the Turtle and it just gets better, Jeny and the staff were again exceptional in the service they provide.
It's only a few minutes walk to the beach, a 15 minute leisurely stroll along the beach path to D Mall the main shopping area.
The rooms are clean, the shower good with plenty of hot water, AC works well and is quite.
Should you wish for a blanket, an extra towel for the beach or something else just ask and they seem to be able to always provide it at no extra charge.
Pancakes or French Toast, coffee and toast are included in the price for breakfast, if you are travelling in a group ask Jeny if she will arrange a BBQ of fresh local foods cooked by Jessie and Benjie they are great.
There are many attractions on the Island and Jeny will be glad to help you partake in these and give you advise on where to go and what to do.
The bar is always open should you like to sit back after a day of exploring and enjoy a cold drink and maybe stay for dinner.
They have a good generator should there be a power failure on the Island, which happens sometimes, so no inconvenience to AC or just relaxing in your room, free internet.
It's quite should you want to relax in preparation to a night of festivities along the beach bars.
Overall great value for money and having looked or stayed at other resorts of similar cost and sometimes much more expensive this is the place to stay.
I extend to all at the Turtle Inn a special thankyou for another great stay they have become like good family.
GIVE IT A TRY YOU WON'T BE DISSAPPOINTED

Room Tip: All rooms are good I personally prefer the upper superior rooms but the lower are shady and cooler

I've been stayed in Turtle Inn for 4 nights in early May. great & friendly staff, beautiful garden and good location. The room is very basic but clean. as we spent most time on sea sport activity or stay on the beach, we are very satisfied with the resort given its budget price. Some tips:
1. 5 mins walk to S3, very convenient for island hopping, parasailing, banana boat, etc., as they all set out there.
2. If you want to swim, just 5 more mins walk towards S2 along the white beach, it's still S3 but the water is good (no algae) and not so many people like S2.
3. Some tricycle drivers don't know this place, so just ask them to send you to S3 and drop you off until see the "Andok's" on the main road.

Great location; great owner/manager; great staff; beautiful rooms.......all the ingrediants for a perfect stay!!!
We were celebrating our first anniversary and stayed here for 5N/6D. The owner Marilyn helped us arrange our itinerary. They have a man Friday, Kuya Jess who will assist you in arranging outdoor activities and getaways. A perfect experience. I am glad I chose to stay here. Special thanks to all tripadvisor fanatics who posted reviews about the place.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great. They are comfortable, spacious and tidy.
