We stayed at turtle bay for 4 nights and had a great time. It's on the beach, it offers diving, paddle boats, massages. I had my first amazing diving experience here. The dive instructor spoke good English and was so lovely. Good restaurant with good food. Great service from staff, clean rooms. Also close to chili bar and other great... More

Worst stay in Phillipine. Receptionist was constantly gone, we had to search for her everywhere. Wifi did not work at all! Food was only deepfried, breakfast was poor. Tablefootball was not to use, because lots of birdpoop on it. The table of tabletennis was very bumpy en de place where it stood, was very dirty and old. Also the gear... More

Stayed 1 night in family room. Family room is spacious, with 2 beds and 1 foam bed. Kids loved the play area and pool. Very quiet and relaxing place. Breakfast is not so yummy though but I always go for fruits which they have lots so that's ok. Worth the price!

Our room was clean and quiet. The dive masters are wonderful. My husband and I had not dived in many years and the dive team was incredible with getting us comfortable back in the water. Highly recommend this resort! Great pool. The restaurant serves wonderful curries and fish and chips.

Hotel room: We ordered a king room which had sea views from the porch, not direct views but views nonetheless. The room was large, huge king sized bed, TV, old school victorian style furniture. The only problem I had with the room was the aircon wasnt sufficient to cool the room to make it cool to sleep. I was hot... More

We stayed in the sea view room. The room was clean and the breakfast good. Staff was friendly. Poor wifi. Be prepared for a 5-10 minute drive into the resort from the main road by car or tricycycle. We went snorkeling right out of the back door and it was amazing. Also took a trike to kawasan falls, about 30... More

Wow what a beautiful resort. This is the most beautiful resort I have stayed in during my stay in the Filipenes. Spacious rooms, great staff, beautiful pool. It is a absolute must to go snorkling in the bay the resort is located at. Especially around 8 am or 4 pm when the turtles come to check out the reef. Would... More

The staff and dive masters were a 10/10! Very nice experience and the dive sites are exactly what we were looking for. Really loved the pool as well. The food was not that great. Over the 4 days we tried almost everything on the menu. Breakfast was good enough which is important.
