Travel Blogs from Boracay
Boracay is a popular beach in Asia, because of it's white sand and clear blue ocean. It also has a lot of bars and restaurants on the side of the beach. Joedy likes to dance and party, so we took some time in our itinerary to visit the island. I wasn't eager to go there, because I'm not that much of a party animal, but I must admit I had a really …

... toes into it is like sinking your feet into a sponge cake. The main beach is several kilometers long and lined with restaurants cafes and shops as this is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the Philippines. We arrived here deep in the middle of holy week so the bus took twice as long as usual as every village and town we passed through had a huge religious procession with carnival style floats and thousands of participants. It's lovely to ...
... about it and these guys either didn't understand us or didn't know anything about it. Hmmmmm....they asked the port manager...nothing. Are we in the right place? There is only one Calatrava on this island. We gave up at the port and ambled down the seafront to a small cafe where the lady owner and her two guests also had the same blank looks on their faces when asked about it. Oh no, maybe it really isn't here! I tried to describe it to them as the book described it. ...

He had a slow ass bike and compare to the others it wasnīt even loaded. Now he wanted money for the bags that he didnīt even carry for us. I said No again. Anna went hey mister, I have had a long travel and I am very tires so please ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
I stayed here about 5 days while visiting Boracay. It's a very nice with large rooms and friendly staff. It's quite a long walk to station 1 and 2, but the upside is that it's a quiet area. I bought a t-shirt from the inn and still wear it proudly (good quality t-shirt also, by the way :)).

Best place to stay on Boracay
We stayed at Turtle Inn for 5 nights during our honeymoon in September. The owners of the guest house are extremley friendly and gave us a very warm welcome. During our stay there they made every effort to help us, including recommending an excellent contact on the island to take us on a boat trip. The rooms are very clean and spacious. With excellent air con, cable tv and a very reasonably priced mini-bar, what more do you need! The area in which the Inn is located is definitely the nicer end of the island and I would highly recommend staying at Turtle Inn.
My partner and I stayed in Turtle Inn for 9 nights in September. We were on an 8 month trip and stayed in many places over that time and Turtle was by far the best. The staff are all so kind and helpful and will do anything for you. It was like staying with family. The hotel is beautiful, and on Boracay which can feel a little overcrowded you really feel like you are away from it all, while still being only a 2 minute walk from the beach and amenities. There is a real sense on space around the resort. While we were there the restaraunt was still being completed but it did not affect our stay in the slightest, and will be fantastic when finished. The beds are huge and so comfortable, even the linen was luxurious. There is an excellant mini bar in the room with everything you could want - and Troy is on hand to share a drink with you if required!! We booked by email and were expected when we arrived with a lovely welcome drink. We even had complimentary breakfast on our balcony a few times. I could not recommed Turtle Inn highly enough - We only have one complaint and that is that we could not stay longer.
It's been almost a week now since i got back from a wonderful trip in boracay. i am just glad that i never hesitated to spend 4 days of my vacation to a place i call PARADISE! Sure there were a lot of good things happened with this trip and one was staying at Mr. T's TURTLE INN. My friends and I were so tired from the trip and first thing that we could think of was to get a good rest on the first day... and fortunately we did. I was so surprised to see our hotel room. It was huge! It reminded me of my stay in Marco Polo Hotel because it looked almost the same... big nice beds, clean bathroom and if i am not mistaken we were on the top most floor. Yes.. it was like staying in a 5 star hotel but it was freakingly cheap! The staff were just extremely accomodating especially the owner himself, TROY. He made our vacation so perfect! He had good recommendations. He brought us to cool party places the first night and even went sailing, island hopping and snorkelling (my favorite) with us on our third day. It was my 3rd trip to bora and that was the only time that i had so much fun. THANKS to TROY, Jenny and the rest of Turtle Inn staff. I would defenitely stay again with you next time!
Thanks to Korean Chu Suk (Oct 5-7). We were able to have a long vacation. My colleagues and I didn't waste time to book a flight all the way to Bora. We wanted to be refreshed and relaxed in this 3-day vacation. We wanted to have fun and just spend the time of our lives without thinking loads of work. We just wanted to get away from a city life even in just a couple of days. So we did. But the big question there is, HOW on earth can we satisfy our wants? Definitely, we have to start from the resort that we're going to stay in. Checking good resorts made us worried and exhausted.. what if we'll just get disappointed when we get there? How are we suppose to make the best out of that worst situation? Whatever be the thing is... we NEED to get a resort that would accomodate us well in a very reasonable price. AND thank God, we had it!!!...
We have just returned from a 4-day stay at Turtle Inn, and all I can say is that, it seems we actually never left home. The room was too comfortable, to the point that it was too dificult for us to get up in the morning, we practically wanted to sleep all day. Our room was furnished with a queen size orthopedic bed, so the frequent backpains we usually experience when booking in most hotels, was totally not an issue. To spice up more on the comfort of our room, first class Canadian linens where used, which were all immaculately white! Bath, hand and face towels were provided and changed daily, and like the pillowcases/sheets, they were all immaculately white. Our room had a brand new aircon, tv and ref. It also had a minibar, and items were all reasonably priced. The room was also provided with sachets of 3in1 nescafe, and an electric water boiler, should guests wish to have coffee at anytime of the day, and they were free of charge!
So my friends and I were just finishing up a trip in South East Asia with our last week planned for the Phillipines. We planned on heading to Boracay first, and ended up finding this place on the internet. It had offered a great price (If I remember correctly it worked out to 10 dollars a person - ish) for what it was offering and so we initially booked it for about 3 nights (just in case it didn't meet our expectations).
Not for Families
We stayed there last month. The hotel is not kid friendly. You can not let child out on verenda either in top rooms as they can fall or bottom rooms as no place for them, no railings. Construction at hotel and next door makes for noise. Pathway is paved but thru area that is not comfortable to walk at night. From other comments, it is good hotel to go to if you want to drink but not for family. We were not happy there.
I have been looking for affordable accomodation a month before our trip to boracay and came across turtle inn..after asking my boyfriend, Allan, if the place was OK with him, on agreeing, i immediately booked a room for us.
My friends and I came across turtle inn on a website and we booked it immediately. The price was far better than most other hotels and yet the hotel seemed to offer everything that the others one did. We arrived a few hours late in Caticlan and were very suprised that someone was waiting for us! We dont know what we would have done without him. It was late at night and raining. We took a tuk tuk ride to the pier, a little boat and crossed over to a bigger boat while in the water in the darkness. I must say it was a scary experience for us being in the Philippines for the first time but having someone with us made it comforting and he helped so much with getting our luggage there in one piece. Expecting the worst we arrived at a beautiful hotel in Boracay. We were greeted by the staff and given umbrellas right away. Troy the hotel manager upgraded our room for us for a few extra dollars. A very spacious room with two queen size beds, amazing mattress, pillows and sheets, A/C, T.V that had almost 100 channels, refrigerator and shower and not to forget a 20ft balcony with tables and chairs where you could hang out. As the restaurant was not yet finished at the hotel they ordered in pizza for us and gave us tips and advice for the island and diving.
I was planning a scuba diving trip to the Philippines, and after finding a diving shop to dive with, I had asked them for hotel / resort reccomendations that are close to the dive shop. I was then given the name of Turtle Inn Boracay.
