We loved our stay at Turtle Bay resort our room was extremely clean and modern, staff were friendly & always happy to help. It is only a short 10 mins tricycle ride to the restaurant / bar area of Panagsama beach (although the road up to the resort is very bumpy!). The breakfast is not buffet style but you get...

I travelled to Moalboal to go diving with my two teenage kids, so I was looking for a place that was relatively close to the action but clean and comfortable. Turtle Bay DR is a bit further out of the dive centre than I had anticipated on a rather bumpy 15 minute trike ride, but that is probably the biggest...

Situated on the Moalboal coastline with absolutely breathtaking views of the crystal clear sea and white sand, this resort was idyllic in every way. Accomodationis in bungalows of great quality, spacious, clean, all fitted out, simple decor. The grounds are immaculate and feel like a tropical paradise. The restaurant had great local or western food, with service by professional, attentive...

The best thing about this hotel is the house reef where you can see great coral, fish and turtles. We found the hotel a bit overpriced compared to others we stayed in. The rooms are a good size. You can play pool for free and there is a lovely swimming pool. We ate there one night and the food was...

I stayed for 3 nights in Jan 2017 and loved it. I had actually stayed here around 1 year ago, and at that time I also wrote a review here on TA and gave a 5-star rating. Common observations from last year and this year: - Very clean resort, not only the rooms but really everything, even the various public...

This is a lovely, laid back and pleasant place to spend a few days. It's not 5 star luxury, but good value for money and really (really) clean. The house reef is excellent and we even saw a few turtles. Plenty of options for diving and they do a day trip to see the whale sharks.

1. Personalised services, CJ, in-charge of the Dive Center, personally greet us when we arrived, and though we arrived late by 5pm, he allowed us an hour of kayaking. (the dive center is supposed to close by 5pm) The owner, Fa, also took time to chat with us 2. Food is delicious and reasonably-priced. One main course is < US$8....

I feel a bit conflicted typing this review but I will do my very best to be objective. We stayed in number 7 hit for 2 nights. We should have stayed for 3 but we decided to check out one day early because we did not like it on the resort. The staff of Turtle Bay is nice and kind...

Stayed here for a week and it was paradise! The resort was clean, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the views were incredible. The restaurant offered great food and the diving lessons were excellent. There is excellent diving and snorkelling just off the back of the resort. It is close to nearby beaches as well as restaurants and...
