Reviewed April 6, 2019

We stayed here for a week this March and found the hotel to be clean, pleasant and very friendly. The diving was excellent, we were taken to various dive sites, the guides new them very well able to point out all the things of interest. Prices were good especially if you did 10 or more dives. The majority of divers seem focused on taking photographs, which is fine, but they do tend to miss a lot of things that weren't directly in front of them .

I would happy recommend this hotel, the name of which is perfect. I have never seen so many individual turtles ( 3 different species ) in my 20 yrs of diving, on one dive we saw over 15.

Room tip: Ask for sea view ,

Dear Guest,

Thank you for giving us a shot, and even more for leaving us this review. Being a small company, most of our guests are referred to us by existing guests. Like you, all our other guests too loved their dive experience with us. It is our utmost pleasure to share the wonderful marine life of Moalboal and inspire people to protect this irreplaceable treasure. We look forward to serving you again.

Best regards,
Turtlebay Family

What a surprise this was. This place is so serene and relaxing and we are so glad we found it. I had the best mangoes with breakfast every morning. Maybe the only downside was the road to get to the resort and if you book a massage there for you and your wife, they are quite pricey for the area and the therapists have little to no training.
I expected to have higher end therapeutic massage from a resort at the listed prices. Had wonderful massages in Coron for half the price. But the resort was great.

Room tip: Although we were right below the pizza restaurant, room W had a great view of the bay and a nice balcony.

Second time in this hotel. Place is so relaxing and beautiful. Good and spacious rooms. Breakfast was good. Otherwise the food in hotel was just ok, could be better. Great diving and professional diveshop! Little bit far from everything but for us it wasn't problem. You can rent bike or take a ride to Panagsama.

This is a great resort for divers. The highlight dive site within a 5 minute boat ride of the resort is the sardines. Being surrounded by them is amazing! We saw turtles on almost every dive and most are not shy about having their picture taken. There is an extra charge for diving with the whale sharks at Oslo but that too is an incredible experience.

Unfortunately the dive centre does not have a camera room. There is a dunk tank for leak testing pre-dive and rinsing post dive but all other camera work must be done in your room. I rented a BC and reg for the week I was there. Both were in excellent condition and inexpensive to rent.

The room was comfortable with both a fan and A/C and a fantastic view of the beach. Food was buffet breakfast and lunch and dinner from an a la carte menu which was extensive.

Staff were friendly, helpful and always smiling. The swimming pool was well maintained and had lots of loungers nearby, some shaded, some in the sun.
