This is not the first time we have stayed at Turtle Beach and certainly it will not be the last. Every time we come to the resort, Paul who is the owner along with his family and staff make sure we are comfortable and that everything is ship shape. My wife brought her farther who is in his late 70's and could not see all the sites on the island so he remained in the villa for part of the time watching TV and enjoying the ocean views. Paul checked on him every hour to see if he was doing OK and to me that was so comforting to see that he cares about people. We love Paul and his family and the life style is relaxing and so much fun. We have gone diving several times and just love the place so much, its our home away from home. Thank you Paul you are the best !!!
Turtle Beach, Roatan had everything my GF and I wanted. A truly visually appealing property with amazing views and lush landscaping. The villa we stayed was The Eagle Ray room. It had beautiful decor that was very nice and comfortable with all the comforts of home. Paul was so helpful and knowledgeably and everyone was so nice. They really catered our vacation to our needs. We truly enjoyed our stay. The scuba diving was the best I ever experienced. The Paddle boarding was a blast and zip line was thrilling. The botanical garden, birds, monkey exhibit was unexpected treat. Never a dull moment. This vacation met everyone of our expectations. We will be definitely be back..
This was our 2nd stay at Turtle Beach. The people who operate the resort (Paul, Mary, Larry, Rosa, and Carlos) are great. They go out of their way to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. The cabins are very comfortable and have many amenities of home. If you want fish, they call a guy. If you want fresh fruit, they find it for you. If you need anything - they do their best to get it. And they know just about everything and anyone on the island. It is a really special place. It is a perfect location too. Right between West Bay and West End. You are far enough away from the tourists, yet close enough to walk or take a water taxi (for $3 US) to both locations. I can't wait to get back there. We are planning our next trip now!
My husband and I stayed in the Lobster cabin for tens days and had a vacation experience that was so great, I am stumped for words to describe it. The property and locale, right on the beach, is gorgeous, well-maintained and has great amenities including a palapa, out over the water, where we spent every morning enjoying coffee and most evenings enjoying happy hour and watching gorgeous sunsets with the other guests @ Turtle Beach. The water is crystal clear and was the perfect temperature to just cool off or enjoy some great snorkeling steps from the resort. When you are in the mood for a little adventure, Turtle Beach is an easy walk or water taxi to either West End (our favorite!) and West Bay. But perhaps the best thing about Turtle Beach, is the owner/host, Paul, and his family members, Mary & Larry, also on premises, who just can't do enough for their guests. They are super nice people who have created a very friendly, relaxed vibe @ Turtle Beach. If that isn't fantastic enough, guests of Turtle Beach are also able to experience top-notch diving and/or snorkeling with the incomparable Denisse, of Clearwater Dive Adventures, located right next to the resort. If you want the best of what Roatan has to offer, stay @ Turtle Beach Dive Resort!
Visited Roatan for a relaxing 5-day weekend over the Fourth of July holiday needing some peace and quiet and relaxation. Turtle Beach delivered in spades.
We rented the Lobster cabin which is right on the beach. While inside is a bit of a bunker (it's the bottom floor of a 3-story building), who the heck cares when over half of the usable space is a personal-use beachfront deck with hammocks, lounge chairs and a cool ocean breeze! We ate breakfast on that deck, napped on that deck, read books on that deck, etc. And all of the windows in the flat open to that deck and the beach beyond.
Paul the owner and Larry the 'go-to' guy were incredibly friendly and welcoming. Their vibe is the same as the property: low-key, relaxed and 1000% customer service oriented. Examples: had a minor plumbing issue and they not only had it fixed in a jiffy, they made sure the work got done while we weren't around. And when we mentioned zip-lining Paul not only drove us up himself, he negotiated a discount for us!
The location is ideal: a quiet stretch of the beach with easy enough access to West End and West Bay. West End is a 10-15 minute walk that requires walking on or around some rocks, while the walk to West Bay is 15-20 minute beach all the way (except for a fun elevated bridge over a small inlet). That said, we never had a problem waiving a water taxi down from the Turtle Beach dock to go either way after a few minutes effort. At one point a water taxi driver gave us his cell number and he became our go-to guy, especially for night pick up and drop offs.
Speaking of the dock, our fondest memory of Turtle Beach is sitting in the thatch roof hut on the beach one night drinking a bottle of wine while a storm and downpour passed around us. An incredibly surreal, relaxing and fun moment in life.
My wife fell in love with Roatan this trip. We'll be back for sure.
Great place to relax and enjoy time with our family. Lots to do and see. If you need anything the on site owners are friendly and helpful. Ready to get you anything you need and answer any questions. We liked it so much we extended our time here instead of going into another part of the island. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We are really having fun.
A true gem on Roatan. You have your own "cabin" yet staff/service abounds -- so much better than VRBO! Away from everything -- and yet just 15 min walk to anything (or 5min water taxi!) We brought our 11 yr old and had a blast. Snorkeling right off beach is amazing & all the water toys provided to esaily paddle out to reach. Views unbeatable. Paul & Steve & crew go out of their way to make guests feel right at home. Every questions answered, trips arranged, recommendations offered, etc. Steve even booked our last night's stay as I hadn't arranged prior and it was Semana Santa... we hopped his fence and stayed at house next door... we will be back!!!
