First I want say thank you all staff from Turtle Bay Dive Resort, they made our holiday very nice.
Everything was very nice, nice rooms, very clean, good food, good breakfast, fast check in.
Beach was nice but the reef near the beach amazing ( corals, turtle, fish) . I would have liked to stay there more time for enjoy from snorkeling and diving.
The team from restaurant very nice.

We stayed here 4 nights as we wanted to dive in Moalboal. Rooms were basic but clean and lovely view straight out to the ocean. They were happy to accommodate changes to breakfast menu and make omelette etc. Staff helpful and pleasant, 5 min tuk tul ride into the main town area for restaurants. On site bar last orders were 2130 which we thought was a bit too early. On site dive centre was ok and our guide Jung Jung was really good. Overall we really enjoyed this little place

Good:
- Rooms & the property is clean
- Staff is warm and super friendly
- Diving instructors are fabulous
- Bike to rent available at the property

Average:
- Food didn’t look appealing, but tasted good
- Bed was good, pillows were terrible

Bad:
- No water in the room, had to fill it from a water cooler in the restaurant (this is something we figured out on our own!)
- The water pressure on the jet spray is non-existent
- Our towels weren’t even changed once during a 3 nights stay

Room tip: - Its faraway from the beach and the waterfalls - Very basic amenities, akin to most dive resorts - Pricey for what’s on offer

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us! We appreciate your positive remarks about our clean rooms, friendly staff, and diving instructors. However, we're disheartened to learn that the provision of free water through reusable bottles did not meet your expectations.

We understand that preferences can vary, and we value your input. This is one of our efforts to minimize single-use plastics by providing free water through reusable bottles. It's heartening to know that many of our guests value this initiative, especially in contrast to other hotels that charge for each water bottle at a big cost. As a diving resort, we want to do our best without compromising the marine life that we take so much pride in.

A group of five of us stayed at the Turtle Bay Dive Resort in October. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. We spent a week diving daily by boat and periodically at night on their house reef. The dive masters and boat crew were knowledgable, competent, and friendly. They kept us safe and within a consistent group over the week. We felt that they allowed us to explore and take our time on each dive and we were never rushed.

The resort is a short distance from two popular areas of town making it a quiet place to stay and a good base for exploring the area. The staff is friendly and approachable. They seem to have fun and enjoy their time at work and we appreciate them for taking the time to be there for us.

Overall, this was a wonderful trip. If I could still be there, I would.

Just spent the last week at Turtle Bay, with a group of friends on a dive trip. Could not fault this resort, staff were amazing and learned our names from day one, they knew what we wanted for breakfast each day! Jong Jong in the dive centre and the lovely crew were amazing, and couldn’t do enough for us. Diving is really well organised and the boats they use are great, shaded and have plenty of room for your gear. Everything we ate in the restaurant was lovely.
We took the trip to Oslob to see the whale sharks and it was really well organised, and a highlight of my trip.
CJ does an amazing job of making everyone feel welcome, great resort, don’t hesitate to book.

We had a great time at Turtle Bay, would definitely stay with here again. The resort is beautiful and perfectly secluded. Lots of restaurant options nearby just a short tuktuk ride away. The area felt very safe. Snorkelling right in front of the resort we saw a family of sea turtles and you can see the reef wall. I had my first dive with Jon-Jon who was very friendly and knowledgeable.

CJ and their family are so warm and welcoming you can tell the resort is cared for and run by happy staff. The ocean views were stunning and the resort is environmentally responsible. CJ helped us organize everything we needed from ordering jeepneys to canyoneering Kawasan Falls with Jay who was an excellent tour guide. This resort has thought of everything, you can fully relax and enjoy your time knowing you are well taken care of.
