Good hotel, but doesnt measure up to 4.5 starsPosted Jan 1, 2016
Turtle is not on the beach. It is a 5 min walk. The staff is friendy, the food is excellent. They claim to have a meditteranean restuarant that doesnt have falafel. Their WiFi is terrible (0.2Mb/sec). The toilet flush is weak and they do not provide hair conditioner. Massage was excellent, but they dont have services like hair removal they advertise. The rooms are large and beautiful. My experience was mixed Lots of litter on Kovalam beach. Would not visit again.

fabulous hotel in an excellent locationPosted Dec 10, 2015
i stayed in the hotel, turtle on the beach, recently with my friend for 4 days. i must say it was a pleasant and a long lasting experience. to start with, an excellent location, quite near to the hawa beach, had fabulous views of the arabian sea. wonderful breakfast, well maintained pool, very courteous staff, well maintained rooms. reasonably priced. the only things i was worried about were the under-equipped gym and the absence of a bar. however, they were small issues. my overall experience was awesome and i would certainly recommend this hotel to any of my friends visiting kovalam. i thank the management for making our stay very comfortable.

Stora rum och fina balkonger 5 min från strandenPosted Nov 1, 2015 on Hotels
Ett något bedagat troligen en gång i tiden högklassigt designhotell där man inte lyckats underhålla framförallt poolområdet. Rummen är stora med utmärkta jättebalkonger under tak (bra i monsunperiod). Hotellet ligger en 5 min promenad från Kovalam beach med stor mängd affärer, restauranger och platser för ayurvediska behandlingar i närheten. Poolen är badbar och poolområdet litet och lämnar en del övrigt att önska. Plus för pingis- och biljardbord. Frukosten riklig i huvudsak indisk med västerländska inslag. Personalen vänlig och servicenivån Ok.

Not value for money.Posted Nov 1, 2015
Pros: Proximity to beach.
Cons: Pl. improve the interior and maintain it well. This hotel is no where close to a 4 or 5 star hotel.
Interior is not as per 4 or 5 star hotel rather pretty ordinary and disappointing. This hotel is no where close to a 4 or 5 star hotel. Also I feel that the hotel staff should trust the customer while check out specially we the customer is declaring minibar consumption proactively. I have seen in any standard hotel that they trust the customers declaration and here I was made to wait to cross check my declaration. And I felt bad about that.

Great value for money with good servicePosted Oct 12, 2015 on Hotels
We stayed for 3 nights. Overall it was a good experience. The staff were responsive and courteous. The hotel is also quite close from Hawa beach(about 10 min walk). We had a great view of Hawa beach from our Arabian sea facing room. The hotel has only one multi cuisine restaurant which offers good Kerala style food. However the variety for local cuisine is quite limited. It is recommended to go to Lighthouse beach which has an array of good restaurants like Malabar cafe instead. Another issue we faced was the lack of a crib for our 11 month year old daughter. They only had a little cradle which was not stable enough. The other slight disappointment was the condition of the hotel lobby entrance which was quite untidy with footprints. Leaving these minor issues aside, "Turtle on the beach" provides great value for money and decent comfort and good service.
