Great place to unwind - Hygienic, Clean & a Team of people who are ready to help you out - Super pool to dip, and the Food -Nothing to say, true authentic Kerala style & mouth watering Fish curry, Chicken curry with fried chicken which our family always admire and the entire veg section including with that awesome tomato soup--Chef & Culinary Team - A big salute. The team starting from the entrance gate till the guards at Beach always concerned about your safety, kids care - being a hotelier( frankly I didn't say that) I feel proud of. Ratheesh & team at Front Office, Bipin with Team Service, Sajeesh and Team housekeeping, Vismaya @Ayurveda and with the Leader Sreejith (General manager) who made it grand and always available 24/7 for any requests and concern, a gem of a hotelier. Recommended if you are going to Alleppey or Mararikulam...A Beach destination. Woww*****Abad Turtle Renjith Menon.

Property-10/10 Food-½/10 Service-8/10 Amazing property- loved the fruit trees and plants throughout the property.the butterfly garden was beautiful. Thoughtful hammocks and swings. Nice pool. A little library, cycles etc. Everything well maintained. Horrible Food- or maybe they don't even deserve ½! By far the worst food experience from any resort/hotel i have stayed at. My baby had a sip of the welcome drink which she puked once we reached our room. Ordered sweetcorn chicken soup and curd rice. The soup was a sorry excuse which smelled eggy. The curd rice was lip puckering sour and had so much hing/asafoetida, we lost our appetite. Dinner buffet had a lot of items but non of the north Indian gate tasted good- dal makhani, bindi do pyaza etc. Moreover by morning I had diarrhea and was vomiting bad, what i ate the night before. Thankfully I was as good as new, once my stomach emptied the contents of the night before. Good service. No complaints. They offer towels on the way to the beach, and there is a shower to wash away the sand and sea water before getting into the rooms. Everything everywhere is immaculately kept. Only suggestion would be to add mats at the entrance , and especially the toilet entrance.

We wanted a nice beach getaway in Kerala to spend some relaxing time as we were on a visit to Kerala from Mumbai. Abad Turtle Beach with private access to the Mararikulum beach was just out of the blue and one of our best trips. The resort is just a lovely fairytale place for people who love nature. They have ducks, rabbits, cows, cranes(wandering around), butterfly gardens, lots and lots of ponds around, lots and lots of flaura and fauna and lovely independent houses. Secondly, the staff is the most courteous and helpful who will go out of their way to help you. The rooms are made in the traditional kerala house archietechture. They are very comfortable with open to the sky bathroom. Very spacious and big rooms and bathroom. Food is great, though I would have preferred more Kerala cuisine on the platter. As I am a pure vegetarian, it is difficult to get my choice of food but here the restaurant manager went out his way to get me good vegetarian food, infact, some dishes specially made for non-veg was made as vegetarian preparation for me. Specially try paneer pollichath, it was just awesome. The Ayurveda spa was again great. You get all required advise from an experienced doctor and then take the treatment you want. For me Vismaya my masseuse was excellent. The beach is very well kept - neat and tidy with a very friendly lifegaurd who has eyes for all the guests of the hotel, checking their safety and being there if the guest ventures much into water. Overall it was a great and wonderful experience. We were 2 ladies from Mumbai and little skeptical when we ventured for this trip and that too during these covid times. Doubtful of every other thing, but returned absolutely happy, delighted and relaxed. Infact, I have already decided to visit Abad Turtle Resort with my family soon.

We spent two nights at Abad with our 4. y.o. This spacious property had us ambling along, enjoying the the vegetable garden and playing a bit of badminton during the day. The butterfly garden was more of a garden with only a few butterfly species, but was good nevertheless. The room was clean and cozy, and what I enjoyed most was the presence of a hammock nestled under trees in the backyard - I've been to a few resorts in recent times, but haven't seen so many hammocks attached to nearly every cottage like at Abad Turtle! Also, there's not a lot to explore in the property but you can always laze about in a hammock. One of the main highlights here is the food. Not only are the options many to choose from, but they were absolutely delicious and reasonably priced. Needless to say, the beach is a couple of minutes walking distance from the room and is very clean and not crowded at all. I must also mention that our hosts were quite warm and friendly. Would recommend Abad Turtle to anyone looking for a beach vacay stay.

Room is very noisy because of poor cleaning of top roof. Utilities like iron box are not kept in wardrobe, so property only good at the exterior part of view, it is not concentrated at all about the room facilities.

This was last stop of our five day tour in Kerala. Loved the resort outdoors. Our two year old really enjoyed Swimming Pools, Butterfly Gardens, Ducks and play area. Resort has an easy access to beach from rooms. So you can reach beach in 2 minutes walk. Most loved part was the food. Restaurant staff was very pleasant and there food preparation was excellent. They made spice free food for two year old as per our request. He loved his grilled fish with Kerala paratha. We also loved our fish and prawns dishes. Were the best we had in our Kerala trip.

Abad Turtle Beach is a beautiful property with a private access to the picturesque Marari beach. The age of the property will be compensated with the greenery, hospitality and food. Negatives- Swimming Pool is nice, but not as beautiful as the one at Abad Kumarakom. Buggy is worn out. Furniture should be refurbished. Property needs an overall make over. More activities may be included in the beautiful and spacious activity centre. Positives- We stayed at the Villa near the private entrance to the Beach. Clean beach as well as clean campus. Hammocks are present in front of every cottage. Gaze at the stars. May use the bicycle to roam around the campus. Calm, peaceful. Bliss! Food- As our previous unpleasant dining experience at two other Abad properties were shared with the Chef, he took cognisance of the complaint, promised to inform the Executive Chef based in Cochin about the feedback received and also promised to personally cook dinner for us. Chef Gopakumar kept his word. He stayed back after his duty hours and made the best seafood cuisine I have had in recent times. My wife, a pure vegetarian, thoroughly enjoyed the Paneer Pollichathu made for her. Hats off to Chef Gopakumar. Long way to go, sir. The support of front office staff is also laudable. So is the support we received from the housekeeping staff. The night guard showed me his outpost near the entrance to the beach and informed me that he is always there and may be called, if anything is required. Security staff is polite, but firm and is present 24*7.

Bipin and the service personnel were caring and concerned.The tall HK Supervisor Srijith(not sure of the name) was another stand out caring and concerned person.

Apologies for the delay in sending this review through to you as we’ve only just got back from our holidays and have both been knee deep in work emails, so just coming up for air now! We just wanted to let you know that we had THE MOST AMAZING BIRTHDAY for our 1year old daughter at your beautiful hotel on Sunday,28th November! We wanted to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for everyone’s hard work, dedication and exemplary service which made everything run like clockwork on the day. We have always been thoroughly impressed by the help you guys have done for us in the past and hence for that reason we planned to schedule my daughter’s birthday celebration at ABAD Turtle Beach. The decision to select the venue went never wrong for the simple reason its ABAD. The service, quality of food and the memories all given to us during the entire function will stay in our hearts for ever. Right from the beginning of reservation until the time of check out everything was well planned and organized as per our needs. We are proud to say that every guest who attend the function were glad and happy for the service and the function ABAD provided. We all enjoyed to the core with lots of laugh, fun and great memories. The experience was all great and made us all feel very welcoming. But the main memory we have, will be the wonderful staff who were so hospitable, efficient, helpful and so friendly. A MASSIVE THANK YOU TO ALL! A credit to each and every member of staff especially when working over this tough period…!!! God bless. We thoroughly recommend this Hotel for functions and staying for great long-lasting memories.
