Neat Little Resort right on Kovalam Beach
I was travelling with my elderly parents & wanted to make sure that the resort we stayed in was relaxing, clean & spacious. Turtle on the Beach was an amazing resort..The staff was excellent, the room was huge & clean & the food was delicious. We had dinner & breakfast at their restaurant, overlooking the pool. Their location was to Kovalam beach. In short, we really enjoyed our stay greatly! Would highly recommend it.

Two Blocks From the Beach
Nice hotel about 2 blocks walk from the beach. The hotel was comfortable and the food was good at the restaurant. The room air conditioner was strong and kept the room very cool 24/7.

Disappointing facility
Rooms are run down and not very clean. Air conditioning is noisy. Staff are nice though and surrounding garden area is very pleasant.

Fair 4.0
annexe has issues
I had booked an annexe room for one night . The problem is that the annexe is not easily accessible from the main hotel lobby and on top of that there is either a slope to navigate or 30-40 steps to climb . As the restaurant , main pool and other outlets are in main hotel , it can be very challenging for senior citizens .Further the room had 5 steps to go to the bathroom , dresser and safe , which again is a pain . my reco is to stay in main hotel and take the annexe only at a steep discount . Staff is friendly and service is good . The hotel does not have direct access to the beach but it is easily walkable . Good views of the sea and u can hear the waves breaking . Food is average
