This hotel is like a 3 star hotel...not even like a 4 star hotel at all”
Disappointing things 1) Annex Standard Room not up to the mark and in different building which is almost at the end of hotel premises and seems abandon 2) Don't book a room if photos of room not given 3) Too much mosquitos in the room 4) Too many sockets for devices but very few working properly 5) They not provided Ketaly and other items for hot water/tee/coffee until I asked 6) Internet wifi not working propely 7) swimming pool also not good...two much insect inside water 8) connecting path of main building and annex building not very good. Good Things 1) Friendly staff 2) Good Resturent food 3) Good Location Final Suggestion: Not value of money of my stay. May be main building rooms will be good which is near the reception/Pool.

Lovely oasis”
The hotel was generally excellent, rooms great, clean and well looked after. Restaurant and cafe both lovely with good selection of meals for all occasions. Note that alcohol is not served. All staff were welcoming, friendly and very helpful, and made the stay relaxing. The pool area is great, and enjoyable. Nothing to do with the hotel but we didn’t enjoy the surrounding Kovalam area, finding the beach and frontage scrappy and a bit rundown.

Still needs a lot of work”
The big problem with this hotel is that it isn’t a 5 Star hotel but markets itself as one. The staff are very poorly trained and the facilities are lacking in every way. You can’t even have a beer inside the restaurant because a family may see you drink. The gym is a joke. We booked a twin room and they didn’t have one for us. The staff have no idea how to make a decent coffee. However, we noticed they try so hard to get things right, they just haven’t been taught how things should be done. It is clear after our stay the real problem in this hotel is with the management not providing the necessary training and when that happens they might live up to part of their 5 star rating. A new gym needs to be erected and a direct access to the beach. They also need to get rid of some of the old furniture and rubbish which is dumped at the back of the hotel. We went out all day and all night so we didn’t have to eat or drink here as the service and standards were frustrating. Location is good.

I did enjoy that week in Turtle of the Beach”
Everything was more than OK for us. All our expectations were more than fulfilled. However you need to be aware when booking this hotel that this hotel is not directly at the beach even if the name of the hotel kind of indicates this. It's about 500m to the beach (shuttle bus available). Remember this when booking so you are not disappointed later... We would recommend this hotel for leisure.

Old, outdated "5*" hotel”
The hotel has the nominal facilities to carry 5 stars. However, maintenance and value for money is not there. I paid 12K Rupees, the value I got is not even half. Just a few points: - arriving 4 am in the morning, room AC is not working - breakfast until 10:30 - they do not refill from 10 onwards - a minor one: coffee from a machine is extra cost - foreign hair on the bed and in the bath - no bathrobe and slippers (needed to request specially) - next day room change (in the night) thought everything fine, great room!!!! - again, AC not working in the bedroom - bathroom not very clean - carpet seems not to be vacumed - room seems not to be checked before occupation: opening bath tubs brought brown water first (just means, no one does that before the guest arrives) The staff in general tries to help but it seems it is a handling issue from the top! Do not want to be a hotel critics but value for money is different!!

Lovely hotel with excellent facilities.”
Beautifully kept hotel on the hill up from Kovalum beach. Great to be in a peaceful spot where you could still hear and see the sea. Shuttle taxis and tut tut up and down the hill to the lively beach and shops. Perfect location. The kids favourite hotel in India.

Resort - excellent location but lacked warmth”
The resort is located at an excellent place with beach very accessible. They also offer a free shuttle to the beach as there is no private access. The room were of decent size and properly cleaned as one would expect. However, it lacked in amenities as well as warmth in the staff. The staff were courteous, and nice but not forth-coming. The management seems like leaning heavily on them to try to nickel-and-dime the guests. Nevertheless, it was an OK stay.

stay at 🐢”
well to start with I had been here a year back so I thought to bring family here this year.Rooms we're big,awesome and partially hidden view of the sea(had chosen sea view).The tall trees hide the view but not totally.Rooms on higher floors have a better view.Food spread was nice but ala carte prices were bit on the higher side.Its near to a crowded sea beach and lighthouse.Unlike the Leela which is down that road,it doesn't have a private beach opening.The travel to this place was back breaking from kochi due to diversions and road construction work in patches.People should fly down to trivandrum if they can flight a decent flight and a decent time.Not much option to eat outside and shop.Didnt find a decent place to eat out plus it was far from hotel.People tend to go to kanyakumari which less than 100kms but again the journey is back breaking due to 2 lane road.Overall worth for only a one time getaway.

Good stay but seems over expensive Need to go to room walking through busy road with small kids looks very bad. requested for extra bed for children given only eventhough charged very high for 2 children. Food also.very expensive. No private beach. I don't think it is value for money for the huge amount they are charging.

Stay for a couple of days”
Booked a sea view room, had pre requested for a higher level room. On check-in was given a room on 1st floor. There was no sea view from inside the room but you have to step out to the common portico outside for the view. Even here the sea view is minimal as its covered by trees. We were unhappy about it and hence were upgraded to a suite on the other block. Absolutely lovely suite, with a private sit-out area, and good views of the sea. No qualms there. However, the block was under maintenance and paint work was underway when we reached. There's no direct access to the beach from the hotel. Service levels are basic. Having come on the back of service from a taj property, the service at turtle was nothing to talk about. For the price(10k per night net taxes) i felt the service should be notches higher. -ves - lack of good service and direct beach access +ves - Great rooms if you get a suite upgrade (2 bedroom suite)
