We had a very nice stay at Turtle bay. The rooms overlooking the sea and also quite large rooms. Nice and friendly staff. We had a nice BBQ dinner also there. Food was excellent. I don't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone else.

We stayed here 2 nights, met at the entrance and provided with a refreshing drink. Room was on the ground floor, straight out to the pool area. Beautiful view of the sea. We stayed by the pool which was in lovely surroundings. I need shade and there were no parasols but we were directed to the palm trees which were perfect. The staff were lovely and welcoming especially the manager/owner. First place that took my husband's allergies down on arrival for the kitchen which was much appreciated. Food was great. Good choice for breakfast, lunch and tea. It was a very relaxing couple of days. Would come back.

Flawless service at this hotel. The Manager arranged trips and taxis for us when we felt the need to escape from the peace and quiet of this unique place. Wait staff and cleaners were attentive and very helpful. Each of the seven rooms has a unique view of the wild coast and garden. Food was generous and rice and curry was delicious.

Great hotel, lovely rooms, great food, great view, and a lovely pool. Overall a great few days at the hotel. The food was brilliant and also the staff looked after us. The only concern was the front desk - all the prices he quoted were in USD (so does their spa offer services in USD), which I find very disconcerting and unhelpful. The front desk services were the reason I docked a point.
