First things first: this is not the kind of resort people think of when they see "resort" in the name. There's no A/C in the rooms (hell, our room didn't even have a door to the bathroom!), you're not getting linen napkins or molecular gastronomy or free margaritas the size of your head, and you definitely aren't going to be...

I love Turtle Bay and have visited each February for the past four years. It is one of the most peaceful places I have ever been. It is a terrific laid back vacation for divers and non-divers. The staff make it a fantastic place to visit. As for the schedule, if I had a choice, I would prefer not having...

We had been looking forward to our trip to Turtle Bay from the moment we booked our trip, and it turned out to not only meet our expectations of being a relaxed, remote paradise, but also an adventure! What bumped this review from a 4 to a 5 is, quite simply, the staff. While the accommodations are modest, the staff...

Turtle Bay eco Resort is an amazing place to stay and dive! Let's get the obvious out of the way first to save people time. This is NOT a Hilton or Beaches type of resort. TBER is quiet, secluded, intimate and has some amazing dive sites! There are no roads to "party bars" or huge nightlife! TBER is exactly the...

We are a group of advance divers/friends traveling Central / South America looking for a good dive shop and diving locations.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on the untouched, tropical island of Isla Major in the Cayos Cochinos archipelago, Turtle Bay Eco Resort is situated on a 10 acre site hugging the shoreline of the Caribbean Sea. The crystal clear waters off the coast of the island are enhanced by the world's second largest barrier reef providing a stunning backdrop to your relaxing vacation. Turtle Bay Eco Resort was grandfathered into the Cayos Cochinos Marine Park and to this day, remains the exclusive resort or hotel in the area. This exclusivity remains one of the sole reasons that Cayos Cochinos has preserved its pristine waters, lush tropical forests and it's completely unique experience. Staying at the Turtle Bay Eco Resort is more than just a vacation at a Caribbean hotel, it is the feeling you get upon arrival, the complete relaxation of your body throughout your stay and it's the feeling of leaving more as friends than guests. As a resort with only 5 rooms, our small and intimate feel allows you to get to know our staff and let them guide you through the wonders that this incredible location can offer. We offer private diving, dining, hiking, kayaking, island touring and much more. After a long day of exploring the Cayos Cochinos, why not settle down with a delicious cocktail to enjoy watching the sun as it sets right in front of our bay. Even though we are only 24 miles from Roatan or Utila, our island paradise separates the hustle and bustle to give you what you are really searching for. ... more   less
