Our stay of 2 nights was in the Arabian sea view room and the view from the balcony was wow! The room itself is very spacious. Resort staff is very hospitable and we felt very comfortable during our stay. The breakfast spread is more than decent and the quality appreciable. Overall a very pleasant stay and would visit again in future.

We had a family trip to Turtle on the beach and had a pleasant experience. Hotel staffs were very helpful and courteous right from the booking (we had really last minute booking on the previous evening) thought out our stay. Rooms are very spacious, with a really useful balcony. Breakfast was pretty good with lots of options. Pool is also good. Only drawback I could mention is, there is no direct beach entry, you need to walk down the road to the common beach. While that is not a problem, walking back the uphill can be a challenge especially for elderly. Try an auto on the return. Apart from that, it's quite good!

One of the best resort I have visited till now. The receptionists were really helpful and friendly. Great staff who knew how to serve the customer. The room was well equipped and the service was excellent. From the balcony, we could view the sea and feel the cool breeze. The location of our room was absolutely perfect. Thanks to Mr. Dinu and team who made our stay wonderful.

Recently me and my family visited Gokulam Grand Turtle on the beach. We booked Deluxe rooms, but they given reception level rooms. Nice spacious view rooms. If I know before, the room is this much spacious I have book three people in the room. Nice location, beach is very near. But no direct access. I have visited lots of hotels after covid, every where stop given welcome drinks, but Turtle team still keeping the standards. Tasty food, www bar ( fantastic view) . Will visit again

1.I stayed with my family in the month of June for 3 days and 2 nights at TURTLE ON THE BEACH RESORT , TRIVANDRUM. 2.The hospitality is good and the staff are friendly. 3.The swimming pool is neatly maintained on a daily basis and swimming pool faces the beach which gives u a lovely feel . The swimming pool has 2 feet pool and a 6 feet pool adjoining it . 4. The COMPLIMENTARY BREAKFAST was good thou the daily menu for the breakfast was kind of little monotonous but taste was good . It serves both vegetarian and non vegetarian dishes. 5. There is a spa and ayurvedic massage centre and also gym ( the gym is not that well maintained and upto the expectation ) 6. There is 24*7 dining facility ( thou we did not make use of it much ) 7. There is a bar which is quite good but still the ambience could have been better . 8. There is no private beach as such and so you have to go out of the hotel to visit the beach which is not far away ( it was only around half a km ) 9. The beach view from the hotel is stunning with all greenery around and gives us a calm and serene experience . 10. The price was nominal including stay and food . 11. Rooms were spacious and well maintained and adjoining balcony for each room facing the beach was a highlight . 11. Overall it’s a very good choice for a family visit and especially the kids will enjoy the swimming pool . 12. The food menu . Kids play area , gym facilities could have been better . OVERALL ITS A VERY GOOD RESORT AND VALUE FOR MONEY

We had stayed in this resort for 2 days. It was a family trip with 9 people and we had taken 3 deluxe rooms. The rooms were neat, spacious with more wardrobes. Linens were clean as well. They have a well maintained pool and our kids enjoyed playing on the pool. We were lucky as we got the rooms which had the pool right in front. One can have pool and beach view together. That's a bliss. Complementary breakfast is available. That's a wide and tasty spread which includes continental, North Indian and Kerala special dishes. Kovalam beach is just a few minutes walk from the resort. So it's a perfect location. Not to forget the warmth and great hospitality by the staff here. The guard, receptionists, restaurant staff and the house keeping staff everyone crosses us with a smile and greeting and indeed very helpful. On the whole, we had a pleasant and memorable stay.
