We stayed 12 nights and really enjoyed ourselves. Trent and Emma made us feel welcome and made our trip everything we wanted. It's hard to put into words the feeling of just being part of the resort with staff friendly and accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Mary & Sul, really the highlight of our trip, seeing villagers living...

Transfer pre-arranged we were picked up by Enoch from the airport, a true gentleman, who offered to take us via the supermarket which we jumped at, having read here that town is some distance away.

We stayed during wet season this year (January), and had the best time. As a family with three children between the ages of 6 and 12, we were looking for something that had adventure but was family friendly. The place itself is in a major need of renovating, but the staff and location made up for the not so fancy...

Turtle Bay Lodge was such a fantastic place to stay. Extremely friendly and helpful staff, beautiful dining facilities and fresh delicious food, beautiful rooms where you listen to the ocean as you sleep, snorkelling at your doorstep, incredible beaches close by, great kayaks to visit the blue holes and other near by Islands and attractions. And we were lucky enough...

Trent & Emma were the perfect host. They were helpful and very knowledgeable. The lodge has coral reefs right out the front which provides great snorkling. The restaurant has lovely food with a wide variety to choose from. We ate most of our meals at a large table right at the water's edge. It was like a private resort- there...
