Beach was beautiful- World Class! The room was perfect- great size. Food was excellent with good variety for all. Pool was fun and clean. Staff was amazing and helpful. But remember that you are in a resort- best to go out and do some local shopping to get a real feel for the area. Recommend guests to go out on the beach first light to see the fishing boats come in.

Beautiful resort, wonderful staff
This was our 3rd visit to this beautiful resort. Turtle beach is very special, not just because the grounds are so beautiful & peaceful, it is the wonderful staff who are so friendly and did everything possible to make our stay fantastic . We would like to thank Anu & Megha in reception, Bibin & his team in the restaurant, R Srikanth & his housekeeping team who looked after our room. A special thank you to Francis for looking after Sundari. I had 2 treatments in the Ayurveda centre which I found very beneficial, the 2 ladies that provided the treatments were very good. The presence of the wildlife & birds adds to the ambience of the gardens. It was very difficult to leave having to say goodbye to the staff who we consider as friends. Thank you from Carol & Michael

Very pleasant, clean and peaceful
A great place with a beautiful garden and next to a pleasant beach. Our cottage was brand-new and very clean. The food was just delicious but each time we had to wait up to one hour for the food to arrive (better to place your order in advance over the phone).

not slick but a great stay
We arrived after staying at a hotel that was really smart and everything slick - all manicured and spotless. Our first impressions of Turtle beach was not so impressive. But staying there for 5 nights we found that the well cared for but less manicured look was what gave it its relaxed charm. This was a great stay with people who couldn't do enough to make our stay all we wanted. The location was beautiful as were the beaches and staff help on the beach. Food was always good and reasonably priced - I give it five because it was such a good relaxed and welcoming stay, could some things be improved sure but it took nothing away fro our time there.

Beautiful setting amongst nature
The hotel bungalows are set amongst heavily wooded gardens and are quite private. There are many birds to watch and there is a beautiful butterfly garden and an organic vegetable garden you can wander through. This being an eccentric place in my opinion, it is also unusual in that there are a herd of beautiful, gentle cattle kept on the site including a tiny calf when we visited. Food was very good, staff friendly and helpful. The Ayurerdic spa is basic but the treatments are good and affordable. The only thing I thought could be improved on was the addition of more umbrellas both on the beach and by the pool as there wasn't enough shade. However each bungalow has a private shaded veranda which are lovely, although more comfortable seating would have been a bonus. I can recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxed, laid back time and it will be particularly appreciated by those with a love of nature.

Return visit
This was a second holiday at Abad Turtle beach, on arrival Shijo on reception welcomed us back & so did Shameer & Bibin & the restaurant staff who remembered us from last year, a lovely start to our holiday! We were pleased to see that nothing had changed in the resort, the grounds were as beautiful as last year with an abundance of birds & wildlife. The service & friendliness from all the staff is 1st class & the food in the restaurant is delicious, both the buffet & a la carte. This visit we took a Houseboat cruise on Abad's own Houseboat, this we really enjoyed, the staff were friendly & the meal provided was excellent, the Houseboat itself was also of an excellent standard. As mentioned previously, the area outside of the hotel is not a tourist resort but a traditional fishing village, this is one of the reasons we love it here. It will not appeal to people who want tourist shops & restaurants. I just hope that Marari beach stays as it is now & does not get spoilt by getting too touristy like Goa.
