The lodge at Turtle cove is lovely. Very funky design, great atmosphere and food and a nice location with a good view of the water. The staff are very helpful and friendly. We camped, which sadly isn't a great campground, just a sand space at the back of the lodge near some rooms, but it was safe and secure and... More

We stayed at Turtle Cove for 5 nights. They don't have self catering accommodation, so we sometimes ate at their bar or in Tofo. Friendly owners. Located about 2km from Tofo and its beach. Find out how to get to Turtle Cove from the locals. Take along mosquito repellant.

I stayed for a couple days at the Turtle Cive and I loved it. Staff is friendly and helpful, but due to off season a bit relaxed. Food is very good and well with the price. So are the bungalows. Nick, the owner is always around and gives you helpful hints. A fine place to stay! Only point for improvement... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Great little camping spot in the garden under the trees. Spotted some bushbabies in the trees and hung out with alfie the dog and enjoyed some coconuts which fell next to our tent. The staff who checked us in were friendly but we never really felt like we were welcomed and no one checking up.... More

Rooms were clean and cozy. Food was good and staff was super friendly. But to call this place a Yoga retreat and surf school is just a joke. Non of the surf boards is functioning and there was not a single Yoga lesson within the last 7 days.

I stayed in Turtle Cove for over three weeks in June 2015. The place is beautiful and clean, the atmosphere is chilled and the staff is really friendly. I met some really cool people there and me and my friend got a nice little house for ourselves for the price of dorm accommodation because the place wasn't full - this... More

Nice cheap place to stay in Tofo. It is placed in the middle of the local people, who lives in bamboo huts close by. Nice staff and good cheap food. Good cabin's and a little pool. Only 5-10 min walk to Tofo beach where the dive shops and local market are :)
