Really relaxed and friendly place. We were warmly welcomed by the man who runs the guest house - he gave us a coconut, when he saw our sweating bodies :) The room was basic, but it had everything we needed. It is a bit far from the town centre, but the peace and quiet is priceless. Thanks for everything Martin...

I was looking for a place to hunker down for a while, and tropi turtle was a great affordable place to stay. Friendly and helpful owner and staff. Public beach nearby, many turtles right in front, and a simple backpacker style accommodation.

The owner is extremely friendly and very informative. The hostel is very basic, the rooms are pretty small. The beds aren't the best and the fan didn't really provide much help from the heat or humidity. The bathroom looked like it has just been refurb but there was no cold water so the shower was extremely hot. There is an...
