    Loved it - was just too short for me - the yoga was fabulous, the unspoiled beaches a tonic for the soul. Will go back tomorrow if I can? Any jobs? Love from Amsterdam!

    Dear Nelia, just a short note to say a very big thank you for an exceptionally awesome week at Turtle Cove, the yoga was beyond expectations and the food outstanding - thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication. It is so wonderful to see the calibre of the yoga being presented at Turtle Cove, what an honour indeed to have found Turtle Cove 8 years ago - looking for a yoga retreat :)

    The atmosphere of the place is very relaxing, with a oriental touch. I could spend afternoons hanging out at bar area, swinging on the hammock, or in the garden, next to swimming pool. The rooms are clean and preety. Stuff very friendly. The only minus is that it is quite far away from the beach or tofo "center". But actually it did not bother me too much. I like to be active on the holidays, so a short walk was perfect! i would definatelly recommend place is you are looing for the relax vibe.

    Came here seeking refuge from bedbugs at another hostel in town. No bedbugs here! Found a cheaper, larger, cleaner, and more comfortable room with two fans and a huge mosquito net. A little further from the town center, but worth the walk as there isn't loud music keeping you up until three in the morning. Still close to the beach - unless you can't manage to walk 10 minutes down the road. The bar has good, affordable food, wifi, and a friendly staff. Ask about diving packages - they have a relationship with Liquid Adventures in town.

    If you plan on visiting this are specifically for surfing I'd suggest you do extensive research as there were no surfing waves during our ten day stay and after asking about some of the locals said that there is amazing surfing after cyclone season or something along the lines that it only works out for a couple of weeks each year. Also walking in the sun with surf board in hand from beach to beach looking for waves is really not the most pleasant experience. You can rent boards at turtle cove or at a few places in town and the water is beautiful and warm and the sand is squeaky clean. Lastly for beginners the surf instructor at Turtle cove is very good and we saw quite a few beginners really enjoy their first experience surfing and get decent oretty quickly.

    The yoga on the other hand was phenomenal, with a brilliant yoga instructor (Laura Heininger) and between two or three classes offered a day at incredibly low prices you'll have all of your yoga need met. She accommodates all levels from beginners to advanced and if you're looking for growth in your yoga practice this is the place to find it.

    As far as other activities go there are a couple of volunteer options such as teaching art at the local schools 9highly recommend) or volunteering at the local orphanage). Also there is deep sea fishing (really good) as well as scuba & deep sea diving, tours of the mangroves and many others which you pay for separately.

    There are of course bars/ restaurants along the beach which are good places to chill out. Do expect some harassment from local vendors selling sculptures, painting, bead work, paintings and fresh seafood- there prices are very reasonable though so don't let irritation prevent you from making a few purchases. Do plan on doing a couple of the activities on offer ( prices range from 250- 1500 mets) or you may get a bit bored. And do ask the staff at turtle cove for restaurant suggestions before choosing a place as there are some really good local places and some really bad ones too.
