I had this deal at liveoffcoupon whereby I buy a 2d1n package and receive another 2d1n free. Thus, I decided to use it on their christmas eve.
Other than the checking in time to be strictly by 2pm, and one incident in which actually we were given a room at 11am and were delighted but when we reached the room, we were dismayed to find out that there were actually occupants there and thus, had to proceed back to the reception counter and wait till 2pm to check in, the stay was pretty good!
I was quite worried initially about staying at the riani wing (old wing) due to some of the reviews here. But surprisingly, I love the attap house structure. The room is quite clean and big. Their supposedly single bed are enough to fit in 3 people. So with 2 beds that look like queen sized bed, accompanied with two sofa seats, tv and a balcony, I find that it is really spacious for the 2 of us. There are also alot of tv channels to watch as well.
The only sad thing is, 90% of the view of the seaview from the balcony is blocked by the trees as we are only taking the superior room (starting from third level only). Don't think the first and second are affected.
The waters are okay-clear. Not as clear as bali, but clear enough to see the fishes/rocks and some seaweed. The area near the jetty seems good for snorkling. We played banana boat, S$8 per person for 15 minutes and it was just trashing fun. The pricing is quite reasonable for their watersports actually. 10% disc for hotel stayers. The pool, contrary to what I read, was also very well maintained. No signs of any dead insects and leaves.
However, food there is not really cheap. I had briyani chicken and my partner had some rice and the bill amounted to S$27 for a simple meal. Nonetheless, the breakfast buffet had a wide spread and I am happy with the variety they provide. There were also a compulsory dinner (just for x'mas eve/other special occasions) and I find that generally the food was good. The staffs are really friendly and greet you with a smile whenever they see us too.
As this place is located out of town, wanting to travel out of town for massages/shoppings will cost a bomb for cabs. 100,000 r.p for single trip etc. Thus, I will recommend to stay in the resort to just chill and relax. I enjoyed my stay at turi beach personally.
