Would give 5 points. But: we came with no reservation and the told us they are fully booked. We walked out, booked a room through the internet (booking.com) and came back 3min later with our reservation. ;-) so first impression of the hotel was little weird. But after this little problem, service and staff was very good. Hotel is lovely.

We had booked a suite for our stay and when we reached they gave a free upgrade to the next class. The room was awesome. Very spacious and wooden interiors. They have a wonderful pool. It is situated at 5 minutes walking distance from beach. They do not have a private beach. The only low point was the restaurant. The...

Turtle on the beach was the last hotel stay in our trip. It was a memorable stay, the rooms were spacious and had a balcony with a scenic view of the Arabian Sea. Food was good, staff were friendly and helpful.
