              Beautiful location but the resort itself was smelly in parts. our room was like a damp dungeon. not a place if you're expecting up to date music, had to endure listening to Kennedy Rodgers while dinning. The atmosphere is for pensioners or for very conservative people.

              Turtle Cove is a dream come true.”
              Never have I felt more welcome in a place that let's people really be themselves. The location is so much better than Port Douglas or other popular resort towns. The staff are so friendly and relaxed, the beachfront cabins the most incredible views I have ever stayed in - literally 30seconds to the water! Here you get treated like an adult, very few rules, the pool and spa is open 24hrs, the beach is clothing optional. Everyone could not believe how lucky they were to stay somewhere so beautiful and relaxing, I will be going back each year! This is as good as it gets for the queer community and open minded guests.

              This boutique property was an absolute gem stay in. Fantastic Service, amazing location and friendly staff. We have made some great friends for life (fellow guests) and can't wait to return to resort. Honestly the staff were fantastic and remembered our names and room number, our coffee orders and of course our poolside cocktails. We couldn't have asked for a more memorable relaxing holiday. We will be back!

              Fun, Private, Excellent Staff
              We are Sydney based couple arrived for chill out long w/e and not disappointed. We stayed here a few years ago and the place was getting tired however the new owners have spent some money and all rooms and general areas have had a well needed "facelift" - so ambience is private, relaxing and fun - rooms are very clean and good size and to a "standard" - its not Grand Hyatt/Sheraton and doesn't try to be - but fun resort, very comfortable beds and great location with its own very private beach and pool/spa. Dining was tasty and good size and chef has some interesting dishes on menu - and if you do need fine dining you can always venture up to Port Douglas or down to Palm Cove. Staff are excellent under the "command" of Bert and always attentive and making sure everyone feels included - so everyone can mingle - or not if they just want to have some quiet romantic me time with their partner/lover...:) Bert was also always making sure transport was sorted out even offering to drive us up to Port Douglas one evening so we could have a drink and enjoy a b/day celebration. All in all a very enjoyable break and recharge from the bustle of Sydney.

              We did not spend a lot of time at the hotel and were occupied with other activities. We found the food rather limiting as there was only buffet available, no a la carte. Admittingly my partner is a fussy eater and we managed by supplying our own food. The beach, although private is not much of a swimming beach and we felt a little let down by this. We enjoyed breakfast on our balcony with the birds and appreciated the good quality cable TV. Overall the stay was pleasant but we would not return a second time.

              Absolute beachfront surrounded by native Australian bushland, plus outstanding bar service & fine cuisine, made Turtle Cove the perfect respite from our FNQ exertions. We are now miserable back here in dreary Melbourne (Victoria, Australia) however we are looking forward to a Turtle Cove New Year's Eve jaunt, if not an earlier return. Superb location, superlative bar service - highly recommended!

              Bert the manager, he makes the experience relaxing, social with lots of laughs
              Whilst the resort is predominantly geared towards men, I was initially worried about how this would be for a whole week, with very little female interaction. I was travelling with a gay friend and it was clear that I was going , hence we planned to go out and about each day on trips etc, to ensure we had a balance to our holiday. well I need not have worried. The service, food and relaxing environment was amazing and would suit every guest. I had a ball, met seem amazing men and made new friends. The resort manager is amazing. I have worked in a service environment for over 20 years and he is by far the best I have experienced and completey suited to turtle cove. He runs a great business, his team are friendly, professional, the rooms are comfortable, clean with good air con. Socially the bar and restaurant offer a good evening menu inclduing food theme nights, such as BBQ, PIzza making or you can choose from the menu at very reasonable prices.

              Disappointed that rooms were not renovated. Would need to be sure that this was done before returning. Needs to be more night entertainment options and a general improvement in maintenance regime. A focus on 'Eco-luxury' (turtle spotting, rainforest tours, local art installations, balance between group and individual activities) would make this venue stand out. It's competing with Bali for the tourist dollar so needs to amplify the ambience!

              Beautiful, secluded grounds, very attentive and friendly staff, clean rooms, and excellent food.
              this resort turned out to be a surprising gem for us. we had a very relaxing, stay, yet still found as much to do as we liked. the staff were happy to arrange a snorkel trip or rain forrest tour if you desire, or you could simply spend the day enjoying the beautiful pool and surrounding grounds. we made a number of friends during our stay, and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. since we were there during the summer months (december-april), going into the ocean without a protective suit was not advisable because of jelly fish during this season. we found the pool to be a great alternative, though. we met a number of friends during our stay, and will definitely return.
