Turtle Beach is the prefect island retreat. From the moment you arrive you feel welcome and at home. Paul, Larry and Mary are the perfect host. Always making sure you have everything you need and yet you have all the privacy you could ever want. The beach just a few steps away and the best breeze on the island at the end of the dock is always at your fingertips.
The Villa and the grounds are well kept clean and beautiful. All the fans and air conditioning, if you need it, are all in working order. We decided to do some grilling and by dinner time the grill was set up us at our villa.
You can walk to West End or West Bay in no time at all just take a Water Taxi as you’re central to both locations. If you are there to Dive, Clearwater Adventures right next door and there is no other Dive center on the island that is better. Denise and Marry will provide you with the most personal service on the island. All you have to do is wake up and walk over and you are there!
When we return to Roatan there is no question that we will be back to Turtle Beach!
Our bi-annual stay is at Turtle Beach and we have stayed at the Myan so many times it feels like our second home ! Great morning to get up and hit the beach for a walk and then then evening sunsets are memories made forever. My friends swear my pictures are post cards of almost every sunset. The community pool is right out the door and the the beach is right there! Privacy is perfect, yet you are short beach walk or water taxi ride (3 min at $3/person) to West Bay or West End. Great full kitchen and a shower bath for each bedroom, and even the front door gives you that island feeling! A must stay place if you're on the island . Search pictures for the great sunsets, you'll be sold.
Imagine a magical oasis nestled in a tropical paradise and you have an inkling of the awesome experience of Turtle Beach Dive Resort. Step out of your modern, rustic bungalow and superb diving and snorkeling await you. Perky and personable Mary with Clearwater Adventures will take you to the best snorkeling and dive sites. Want to visit West Beach or West Bay? Stand on the dock, pay $3, and you're there. Want to catch some snapper to throw on the grill for dinner? No problem; that can be easily arranged. Rosa is cheerfully and readily available to make sure that all the guests have the vacation of their dreams. Want a lesson in making island cuisine? Rosa's your girl. Paul, the dynamic owner, will drive all over Coxen Hole and French Harbour to retrieve that elusive Diet Dr. Pepper that you are craving. That's just the kind of guy he is: friendly, kind, and determined that everyone who stays at Turtle Beach is 100% satisfied at all times. I love that Paul is so conscientious about the ecology and helping indigent islanders. He truly has a heart of gold. My husband and I are already planning our next vacation so we can spend more time with our treasured Turtle Beach family.
What can I say that has not been said already. My husband, daughter and I just got back this week and we had an amazing and restful time at Turtle Beach. The place is laid back, the units clean and not lacking anything. But the best is the location and the vibe. Mary, Larry, Paul (and of course Steve - thank you for the beach front change - we loved it!!!!) - thank you for making this week. We went diving, snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking and thanks to Steve's suggestion - we spent the day with Billy! Thank you again and hope to see you again!
Sylvie, Julien and Arielle
We are coming to the end of our 3 weeks at Turtle Brach. If you like a secluded peaceful hide away but still close enough to walk to West bay or West End. This is the place for you. Happy friendly clean. This is our 2nd trip to Roatan and 2nd time staying with Paul Larry and Mary. They go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need and want to do. Clearwater Adventure dive shop is right next door (great dive company) We stayed on the Lobster studio 5 steps down to the beach. We made a lot of new and old friends and had way too much fun. Both my husband and I are now certified diveSSI
Can't wait to come back again in February 2018
Thanks for all your hospitality!
This is a small family run resort on the beach between the two towns on the West side of the island. It is the perfect location for a quiet and relaxing stay but close to lots of things to do.
Property is clean, well maintained and the owners could not be nicer. You feel like family after just a few days! House has all you could need and there are plenty of towels and shop. Bring your own shampoo though.
Clearwater dive shop is right there if you want to dive or do a snorkel trip and we highly recommend them as well. There is a zip line close by and you can get a discount being a guest here. You don't need a car but we recommend one for a longer stay.
If you are there more than a few days you'll be sure to meet Arnold, the fish guy. Great fish and at good prices (by US standards). Several grocery stores to chose from - some more stocked than others.
Overall we would highly recommend staying here. There are 10 different villas of all sizes so if you only need a studio they will accommodate you. If you have 12 people, they will accommodate you. Hosts Paul, Mary and Larry are the best!
My Husband and I spent 10 days here for our Anniversary. It was the best trip we have ever had. Maria made the booking process a breeze! The accommodations were terrific, we stayed in the Lobster Studio right on the beach. It had every thing we needed. Paul, Mary and Larry were so helpful with any request. Even doing some of our shopping for groceries. They knew so much about Roatan and hooked us up with some great adventures. Every effort is made to assure your stay is amazing without feeling intrusive. The property is perfectly located between West End and West Bay so you have a completely private experience or quickly walk or take a water taxi into town for some excellent food and fun! We will be back!
