Beach was beautiful- World Class! The room was perfect- great size. Food was excellent with good variety for all. Pool was fun and clean. Staff was amazing and helpful. But remember that you are in a resort- best to go out and do some local shopping to get a real feel for the area. Recommend guests to go out on the beach first light to see the fishing boats come in.

Beautiful resort, wonderful staff
This was our 3rd visit to this beautiful resort. Turtle beach is very special, not just because the grounds are so beautiful & peaceful, it is the wonderful staff who are so friendly and did everything possible to make our stay fantastic . We would like to thank Anu & Megha in reception, Bibin & his team in the restaurant, R Srikanth & his housekeeping team who looked after our room. A special thank you to Francis for looking after Sundari. I had 2 treatments in the Ayurveda centre which I found very beneficial, the 2 ladies that provided the treatments were very good. The presence of the wildlife & birds adds to the ambience of the gardens. It was very difficult to leave having to say goodbye to the staff who we consider as friends. Thank you from Carol & Michael

Very pleasant, clean and peaceful
A great place with a beautiful garden and next to a pleasant beach. Our cottage was brand-new and very clean. The food was just delicious but each time we had to wait up to one hour for the food to arrive (better to place your order in advance over the phone).

5/5 Excellent

not slick but a great stay
We arrived after staying at a hotel that was really smart and everything slick - all manicured and spotless. Our first impressions of Turtle beach was not so impressive. But staying there for 5 nights we found that the well cared for but less manicured look was what gave it its relaxed charm. This was a great stay with people who couldn't do enough to make our stay all we wanted. The location was beautiful as were the beaches and staff help on the beach. Food was always good and reasonably priced - I give it five because it was such a good relaxed and welcoming stay, could some things be improved sure but it took nothing away fro our time there.
