    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.

  • 2.0.Poor

    We paid for a “signature suite”, but what we got was NOTHING that looked like the photos. The furniture was broken, the carpet was old and dirty (when the photos show a wooden floor). The manager was very nice and gracious, but what do you do with nice?? I frankly feel that i was cheated and expect a full refund. They need to lower their prices, or upgrade their property.... but in the VERY LEAST STOP SHOWING PHOTOS THAT ARE NOT TRUE TO EXPERIENCE. I have taken photos to share and will post them later.

  • 4.0.Fair

    After repeated attempts on the first day, till 11 PM, the maintenance staff was unable to fix the room A/C. On second day, I was told that there is no individual climate control for each room and the temperature can only be set on the the central A/C unit which was too warm for me. The floor, closets and curtains were covered in lint. The phone in the room had static noise on day one and the mic stopped working on day 2. This resort is listed as 5 star on Orbitz which was the primary reason I booked it. I disagree with this rating and would not give this resort more than 3.5 stars. I expect a 5 star resort to have individual climate control for each room and rooms to be clean. On the positive side, this resort has a nice view of the ocean, pleasant and helpful staff and good food. Please update the rating of this resort so that the future travelers get a better idea on what to expect.

    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.

    Great place to stay. Slightly removed from commotion of beach strip, so a clean and quiet place to retire to at the end of the day. Staff brilliant. Hotel and room very pleasing. We had a room on floor below pool and loved it. Would definitely stay here again.
