We Arrived to a rather frosty reception, arriving at the end of LEZ FEST so we decided to hold up in our room the first evening, as we realised that the girls still had some partying to do.
The rest of our 8 day stay was beyond believe we had arrived in a little pocket of Paradise with staff that were friendly and interactive.
The food was nothing special but the portion size was humungous.
My partner and I were there to Celebrate our 21st Anniversary and could not have picked a better place.
We will Definately be back and cant wait to make our next booking
We stayed in the Ocean Front Room and with waves crashing on the shore to ease you to sleep at night and unobstructed views of the ocean during the daytime.

Luke and I (Vince) stayed at the resort in September 2013. The staff were very friendly & welcoming. The room was spacious & comfortable with a beautiful view of the ocean. It was great to have a private beach to walk out onto. The setting is beautiful with an open bar area by the pool with lots of surrounding trees. The meals were really nice. The dining area housed a large table which is a great way to meet lots of different people and new friends. The place has a very relaxing feel about it. It was our first visit at Turtle Cove and certainly not last. We look forward to coming back soon!!

This place is five star to me - it offers everything to make my 8 night holiday fabulous! At the end of Sept / beginning of Oct the weather was brilliant, no rain, warm non-sweaty days, warm nights, the surf was soooo warm, and the pool was warm yet refreshing. This place fits my budget, has great staff who are friendly and striving to give their best - they may not always please everyone but personally I'm in holiday mode, so there's no stress from me! The food is great, the rooms are clean and well serviced, and meeting new people every day is a highlight! If you're wanting a refreshing time within budget, then this is the place to go, however if you're looking for fancy / royal treatment where you might need to pay $500 + a night - maybe you might like to look elsewhere. Whether you're single, partnered or a group, then maybe you could consider this place your 'gay paradise', like I do!

Room Tip: If you want to get out and about, then hire a car as this place is somewhat remote. Personally though, this place has all I need for a brilliant warm holiday, so I just got the shuttle. As for rooms, they are all good, I stayed in the garden room and it was very nice, and way cheaper too!

We returned to Turtle Cove after six years to find it vibrant, yet wonderfully calm and relaxing. The location is unsurpassed and the extensive beach has the feel of your own private beach.

Our beachfront room was clean and comfortable and has been nicely updated since our previous visit. The food was good and the staff was friendly and efficient. In particular, Ray, Carl, Dan, Marwane and Tony all helped make our stay all the more enjoyable!

We had amazing weather for our 5-night stay (for the price of 4!) at the beginning of October and met some wonderful new friends. This truly is what Turtle Cove is all about!

We certainly hope to be able to return again on our next trip to Australia.

We revisit the Cove because of the relaxing and non judgmental space that it offers....

It's a great venue to socialise with old friends, or just making new ones. Or to just relax and do your own thing.

Our room was clean and comfortable. The annoyance of a a cramped flight with lots of screaming children quickly evaporated with the complimentary bottle of bubbles in our room for return guests ... Hehehe

Consistency of service and quality of food on offer depends on the staff on duty. It goes through daily peaks and troughs. Having a hire car allows us to escape the troughs....

It's great to see the ongoing maintenance works on the place too.

The place is friendly, relaxing and it encourages you to be yourself. And as long as this aspect of the resort remains, we look forward to our next stay.
