Rustig gelegen en lekker eten.
De kamer was ruim en proper, de badkamer was in orde. De druk van het water was wel aan de lage kant, dus aangenaam douchen was er niet bij. Een doorstroomapparaat zorgde voor de verwarming.
De tuin was mooi aangelegd en het zwembad oogde uitnodigend.
De keuken was eenvoudig en lekker,de bediening was soms een beetje traag. De duiklocalen waren meer dan ok, alles was netjes. De eigenaars waren zeer vriendelijk en begaan met hun gasten.

Het hotel ziet er goed uit, nadeel is ligt ver van het dorp af. kan niet even wat uit hetr dorp 123 halen. De pijzen van drinken en eten zijn erg hoog mischien komt het door dat je S ochtends gratis ontbijt krijg.
Voordeel: Duik onderneming goed opgeleide jongens

Lovely dive holiday
Awesome dive crew, accommodating staff,
Considering that our sole purpose to Moalboal, Cebu was to dive and to visit the whale shark at Oslob, Turtle Bay Dive Resort proved to be a good, albeit relatively pricey, place of accommodation during our 5-night stay.
The accommodation at Turtle Bay is clean and adequate, the furnishing basic and functional. A good point to note though is that their qualifiers for rooms with a sea view is quite a stretch; I think there's only one villa with a proper sea view. The property is rather spacious, with plenty of room for kids to run around and the pool is sufficient.
There aren't much choices for breakfast so best not be fussy. That said, the rest of the food offerings at the resort need dire improvement. Many of our meals were overpowered with lashings of salt. We were diving 3-4 times daily and it didn't make sense to head out for lunch, hence we had to dine in almost all afternoons. The staff were most accommodating though. As we were lazy to get out of our wet wetsuits in between dives and we're not allowed to dine in the restaurant with our wet wetsuits, the staff indulged our request to have our meals in the garden cabana. On the night when we ended our diving late with a night dive and had to wake up early for our Oslob whale shark diving expedition, they even managed to work out with a local pizza place to have pizza delivered for our dinner so we could save the hassle of going out of the resort.
The resort's location meant we were close to many interesting dive sites; the house reef especially is spectacular during nightfall. The dive team at Turtle Bay were exemplary and fantastic, and were able to accommodate to the diverse range of diving skills of our entourage.
Apart from the bad food and my biggest pet peeve that they don't provide complimentary bottles of water for guests, our stay at Turtle Bay Dive Resort was a pleasant one, made memorable by some awesome diving experiences.

Dive Instructors, Staff Friendlyness, Clean Resort
This is the "off" season for dive resorts in Moalboal, where normally everything is running at half speed, but the staff on hand were plentiful, helpful and smiling. The two young (well compared to me they were young) dive instructors were helpful, their English was perfectly understandable, and they were very patient with my two sons (11 and 16)

Really disapointing stay.
The setting is lovelly and the snorkelling was great
The stay at turtle bay was really disappointing. our stay was the third hotel in in the Philippines in 3 weeks and without doubt the worst.
The place looks lovely but once you get under the surface there are not enough staff and those who are there are lovely but in-experienced, poorly trained and poorly managed.
We arrived and were told no drinks were allowed to brought into the hotel, not even a bottle of water only to find the hotel had prices double what any other hotel or bar chooses.
We had insects in our room a couple of times and the receptionist and barman on duty came to help but surely a hotel with 30 odd rooms needs more than 2 staff on site.
The worst incident was when the buffet breakfast had been left out uncovered for 2 hours and when we went for breakfast the meagre left-overs it was covered in ants. We pointed this out to the staff who said they would deal with it and make us some fried eggs. A couple of minutes later the waitress came to our table with a plate of sweet sugared buns. On noticing the ants crawling over the supposedly fresh buns it became very obvious that is was the same ant infested buns as before.
The owner was sat at the breakfast bar eating his breakfast during the ant incident and did nothing at all to assist or apologize.
The room we were in was a more expensive sea-view deluxe. I think the way the cupboard under the sink disintegrated and the housekeeping staff missed our room on the first day the room is rarely used. It may be down to the very poor noise isolation to the adjacent room. You can hear 'everything' that goes on.
As I already mentioned the drinks were over priced as were the food and the prices for transfers and taxis were all similarly hoked.
In summary we would never stay here again and would recommend our friends also avoided it
If you find your self stuck here nip through the side gate and eat at the lovely dutch dive resort next door.

nice 4 stars hotel, but resort produce his own power. so, client must support generator noise all day long. boring and not resting. nice dive spot. not far from moalboal, but you need own transport to get out from there, located 2 kms from main road. no roasters yelling around.

Nice Resort - Totally overpriced
Nice Pool area, good dive center
Location of the resort is quite isolated, no restaurants or shops nearby. Guests are highly depending on services of the Hotel (food, drinking water, transportation etc.) which are totally overpriced. While all restaurants and cafés in the nearby town have free Wifi, you have to pay 100 pesos per day at the resort. Wifi is then slow and only avalable in the restaurant. For example the "Lunch buffet" (without drinks), which was quite poor costs around 11 €. Compared to the regional average prices that you pay in a restaurant or café, this is rediculously expensive.
I don't mind paying more because I am a tourist and stay in a nice resort but you feel like being fleeced...
Haast u, beperkte beschikbaarheid!
