Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

When we arrived, we payed the entrance fee. Our guide was really good and told us a lot and we learned a lot. They alsthough asked several times for donations. The idea of this institution is good, although not everything might be done in the best way.

Turtles were kept in a terrible state. I was surprised to see they allowed to hold turtles just like it was nothing. Some tanks were not clean at all. I was bit concerned about hygiene and overall health of turtles. It almost seemed like they were just kept there for tourist.

Visited this turtle rescue centre today & encourage everyone who finds themselves nearby to visit. Two years of no tourists has meant the place has suffered as no tourists no income. Any money went into protecting & feeding the turtles. Run by 4 locals who have dedicated their lives to saving these wonderful creatures. You get to hold turtles from 1 day old. They also have a small cafe & sell a few knicknaks to help raise funds. We'll worth the visit to support this venture & let's hope in time it can return to its former glory.

There were newly hatched turtles to huge ones, some were rescued and hurt in sea without limbs which can never go back in sea, some eggs were kept for hatching under sand, ear marked date / day wise progress about the time it will get hatched.
We hold few tiny n mid size turtles in hand.
