“Very dissapointed, not worth it.”
Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

One of the few times where TripAdvisor has let me down. Found the Turtle Inn to be dingy, run down, and ragged. Checked out after one night. Terrible value for money and overall a very poor place. Looks like it hasn't been change or updated in about thirty years. Beach access is very far. If you spend your time and efforts travelling to Boracay, stay somewhere better.

The staff was nice, its not on the beach but just 5 mins walking from the beach,
if you have rooms in the higher area then be ready for some exercise, not something i liked when getting back from the beach.
The staff member (Gentleman, forgot his name) was very helpful and helped us a lot in all the water activities
NO wifi, No pool, Breakfast was ok,

Room Tip: Avoid higher floors, unless ofcourse you are into fitness

After comparing Turtle Inn with 2 other beach front hotels, we decided to go for good value rather than luxury. Everyone at Turtle Inn is very friendly and helpful. We stayed in Room 4. It's very spacious and clean, but don't expect anything too modern. Daily complimentary breakfast is basic, but you have choice of toasts with eggs and different pancakes. Like someone mentioned before, it maybe a bit intimidating returning to the hotel in the evening...especially if you are a solo female traveler, The path is lit at night but the lights are not that bright. We are satisfied with our stay a Turtle Inn. If they can add a safe in the room, it would be even better.

Our flight was an hour and a half delayed from Manila which was late afternoon, I was worried that no one at the resort might wait for us. We are due to arrive 7.00 pm but actually it was 9.00 pm. We were so tired..... upon arriving there was Ms. Jeny who welcomed us with a warm smile and hastily showed us our room on the first floor. I was surprised to see the room so spacious, clean and cool.

The resort is a short walk to the beach which is just fine with us.

I enjoyed good quality sleep, because its so serene at night which I never had at home.

The staff was very hospitable, attentive and anxious to meet your needs. Thanks for the coffee.

Our friends who book in a beach front accommodation got jealous because of the difference with theirs. I just said next time, look no further as Turtle Inn is just a 3~5 minute walk from the shore.

Cheers.

Turtle inn is a great place to stay with very freindly staff that really make you feel welcome and comfortable. There is a really relaxed atmosphere that makes you feel at home. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff whobare always so happy and informative. One of the guys jess even took us too the market to help buy seafood that they then cooked for us it was the best meal of the time on the island.The rooms are a good size and are serviced daily to a high standard. The balcony we had is huge. Great location just a 2-3 minute walk from the beach and resturants/bars but far enough away from the main strip to have a good nights sleep. Thankyou turtle inn for making my holiday a great one.

The Turtle Inn was a really pleasant surprise. The rooms were large and the covered decks off of each room are huge (which was good because it raining nearly the entire time we were there). We received a welcome drink upon arrival which was nice. The hotel is tucked away about 2 minutes walk away from the beach. The staff is fantastic.

Recently spent five nights at the turtle inn and had an amazing time! The staff are just so friendly and helpful in all areas! Location is good, an easy five minute walk to the beach at station 3 and then a pleasant 15 minute walk to D'Mall where there are so many great restaurants. The rooms are large and very clean. Overall I would recommend Turtle Inn as a great budget option for those travelling to Boracay. I will definitely choose to stay there again on my next trip:)
