Pros: The location of this lodge was stunning, it is exactly how is shows in the pictures. The rooms are close to the water with little nooks to explore the hermit crabs by the water's edge, lounge around and read, dip in for a quick snorkel or paddle board. Truely a couples oasis, or family with older children. The general staff were friendly, warm and helped with any needs we had. We had a few food dramas on our stay but once resolved, the food was tasty and the menu extensive. The fresh fish, lobster and cocktails were a winner and the chefs make lovely food in general. Oh and the Banana pancakes, delish!
Cons: I would not recommend for families with toddlers/babies in my opinion.... too remote, and the transport/boats/swimming holes very sketchy, while stunning, hard to navigate and feel safe, so you are limited in what you can do with them in their area. This is of no fault of the lodge, but I think worth mentioning to review the area it is located in, for families with little ones.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Beautiful location, excellent bar and restaurant. Comfortable, spacious room. Great kayak to blue hole. Easy to arrange tours.
Excellent 9.6
Pros: Very nice hotel and staff. You just went to stay on that deck facing the sea and the nice landscape! Dinners were really good with fresh sea food. A very nice hotel.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Location, outlook, the beachfront rooms were great.
Cons: Maybe a little expensive.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Enjoyed every day and night here. Scenery was exceptional. Great place to relax and enjoy the ocean. The lodge arranges tour activities for the guests on request. We did not have to think about what to do everyday as it was full of activities.
Cons: Nothing.
Good 6.0
Pros: The restaurant offered a wider-priced range of food options than other resorts on Santo. Food is VERY expensive in Santo, so here at Turtle Lodge we could at least choose lunch options which were less than $25 AUD per person. The accommodation rooms were airy, clean and comfortable, with kettles and a bar fridge. The kayak trip across the bay up the river to the blue hole is a fabulous activity.
Cons: There is no easy way to swim from Turtle Bay Lodge, as the coral/limestone sea bed comes all the way into the shore. Snorkelling is also a bit of a mission, as you have to clamber through about 20 metres of rocky/water covered foreshore to reach the drop off. This reef is also exposed to the onshore breeze, so if the tradewinds are blowing, you'll need your flippers on, and keep an eye on the swell. If you had little kids wanting to beach swim, this is not the place to stay. Also, the General Manager was a bit of a whinger. I was on holiday. I didn't want to hear about staff not turning up, or people being bumped off planes, or no fish being delivered. Happy hospitality face, mister, when the guests are in hearing distance.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: It’s our first time to santo, and I made the perfect chose of choosing to stay at turtle bay lodge. The property is very clean and nice . A nice special place, real vacation mode. Quiet and very charming place. The manager and his staff they are real top, and nice people. Will be definitely be back on santo.

Pros: Very nice hotel, pool and great view on the bay. Very nice staff. We had a very pleasant stay. Definitely recommend this place.
Good 7.0
Pros: The place is great It was pleasant to deal with the hotel
Cons: air conditionning wasn't woorking which is a shame on summer Car not cleaned neither the tank wasn't full while renting a car
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The location and the staff. It felt like being home away from home. There was all you needed to have. Staff were always there but didn’t feel like they were in your face. It felt safe.
Cons: Some of the other families were a bit noisy but I suspect this has nothing to do with the lodge. It is more about different people sharing the same lodge .
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Great food, gorgeous view, infinity pool, cocktails, friendly staff and nicely decorated, comfortable rooms.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Nice location, easy walking distance to town. Good size room to stay, clean and comfort. It had both fan and air conditioner. We really enjoy our stay there.
Mediocre 3.0
Cons: I’ve been very disappointed with my stay at Deco Stop which is was way too expensive. Overall experience was not too bad but far below what you would expect at for this price. I’ve tried two other hotels in the Luganville area which were much cheaper and much better. A few explanations: - The room itself was ok but below what you would expect for nearly AUD200 - Cleanliness was poor (used bandage in the bathroom, water of the pool was questionable, I did not feel like trying in..) - No privacy at all: the room (like most rooms) was located on the main path (with people passing by all the time) so we had to keep curtains closed to maintain some privacy. - Very noisy: again, as our room was located on the main path and closed to the restaurant, we could hear everything happening! We were awaken by people starting their breakfast at 6:30 and couldn’t have a nap because of the restaurant music. - You have to arrive early if you want to have the choice for breakfast - Last but not least, rooms have air con installed but you’ll have to pay an extra ~AUD30 to be allowed to use it. I was explained later than it was in the conditions but I still find it unfair not to charge the AC as an extra when you already charged AUD200 for the room
Excellent 9.6
Pros: Excellent, attentive staff who make you feel welcome from day of arrival! Peaceful location and views, accessible to the town and main roads to explore. Food was delicious!
Cons: It was sometimes noisy early in the mornings for rooms 1-5 as they are situated near the restaurant where people walk through. It sounded like a hostel with people talking and dragging suitcases! But other than that it was quiet during the day and night and easy to relax by the pool/restaurant. Also, the hotel bus (driver called Sam) is priced extortionately compared to local buses.. and it’s the same type of vehicle as one you could flag down. They charged us 3500 VUV which is about $43 AUD for a 5 minute transfer to the airport... a local taxi charges 1000 VUV! Taxis drive past the hotel so just flag one down!

Cons: Nothing to dislike.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Staff extremely friendly and welcoming. Continental breakfast well catered for also provides for gluten free. Pleasant areas for sitting and meeting friends.
Excellent 9.2
Pros: Close to town, big rooms Flights to Port Vila delayed to 6pm so requested a half day rate to enable check out at 4pm instead of 11am. Initially reception wanted to charge the full rate, however I pointed out that given that airline delayed our flight, the fact that we had a baby and finally that it was raining surely they would be compassionate and give us the reduced rate. Thankfully the person we’re dealing with agreed. Thank you. It made all the difference
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The food
Cons: Terry is the greatest!
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Staff were fantastic, very friendly and helpful. Room was nice, pool area was lovely. We booked all our tours through the hotel too, which were also great. Pacific dive shop also in the lobby which was very useful
Cons: Not much happening in Luganville, meaning we didn't see many other options to eat outside of the hotel. No drawbacks on the hotel itself tho

Okay 5.8
Pros: Breakefast is good taste.
Cons: One time can't use hot shower. But staff can't come because this time is dinner time. I undarstand this situation but one staff angry so we are sad.
Good 6.7
Pros: Villa was big split in two levels. All villas are located around the pool area which is cute. Ami the hotel manager was very helpful and attentive
Cons: The shower was very difficult to get right and on our last day the hot water wasn’t even working. The location is not walking distance to town despite what other reviews say. Specially at night, you wouldn’t want to do it (the road is not a nice walk anyway). Breakfast is very average and dinner substandard for the incredible price they charge. I had the worse caesar salad of my life for almost $25. On our last night we constantly had tiny particular coming from the roof into our bed and a couple of spots in the floor. Not harmful, just noticeable.
Okay 4.6
Pros: Service was great, breakfast was nice
Cons: Rooms were very plain with no effort put into decorating, meals were overpriced (even water cost more that $7 compared to $1 in the shopping centre), same breakfast every day, was not value for money
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Nice tropical breakfast, comfortable bed and spacious rooms.
Excellent 8.0

Pros: Great location, friendly helpful staff
Excellent 10.0
Pros: As always the staff were superb with service especially breakfast times with the awesome chefs with frenchtoast. The receptionist are always open to talk and make sure were happy and the villige was clean. Great service for prepayment and also loved the emails welcoming us back again too. Cya in 2020 God bless
Cons: Nothing
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Very big rooms, good equipped kitchen, very good breakfast
Cons: If you want to go to Espírito Santo go up north. Here you have no beach and you are also outside the city, but this is advantage.

Excellent 9.0
Pros: The place is amazing and the service great!
Cons: Not much breakfast and the food in the restaurant is too Australian
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Located about 20 min walk from the city center, taxi from the airport 1500 vatu. Good breakfasts (7-10 am). The kitchen is equipped with dishes and cutlery. A big plus for the pool.
Cons: Weak wifi only in common areas.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Great view to Aore island. Easy to catch taxi into town. Room was clean and spacious, with verandah with view. Food in restaurant was good. Interesting walks around the gardens and beachfront, with a ship wreck. Owner Dave was very informative about WWII history of Santo.
Good 6.0
Pros: breakfast was good - maybe just a little bit more variety on the table would be better. staff are exceptional . rooms are okay but the single beds are quiet small in size.
Cons: the kayak facility Is too far from the beach. shower pressure was low. family unit has no cutlery or crockery only coffee cups and teaspoon.
Excellent 8.3
Pros: Coastal access and peacefulness. Gardens were great and the room was clean, well-appointed with a great bed!
Cons: Nothing - it was a solid property for the price.
Excellent 8.0
Cons: Needs more kitchen appliances etc in the shared kitchen other wise a great place. Also when you are staying there and spending a lot of money on dinner for the family but can’t byo alcohol to pool area. Understand it for restaurant and day guests though. Still loved the place.
Okay 5.8
Pros: I liked the pool and how you could eat at the pool side.
Cons: The dinner took a long time, and things didn’t come out together. The kids went to bed hungry as they took too long. Very small appartments.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Views were lovely from the pool & dining area and rooms a very adequate size. Rooms were cleaned very well each day and the general upkeep of the whole place was a high standard. If you want calm and relaxed environment away from the main town (which is only 5mins by car away) this is the place for you!
Cons: Breakfast was pretty basic, would have liked fresher bread and at least omelette/poached/fried eggs within the package. The "beach" was not clean (lots of plastic) and dark sand - not an appropriate/comfortable place for guests to spend time.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Good and clean accomodation with very helpful staff. Resort's restaurant serves some pretty good meals.
Cons: The location is not ideal as you have to walk quite a while to the town centre (this is well advertised so not really a shock). The beach is rather disappointing in Luganville but that's is not why you stop there, I guess.

Pros: Smooth process including late check in, friendly and knowledgeable staff, super clean and rooms made each day, pool, included breakfast. Thanks Mary Jane!
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Awesome location just at the start of the main street with a pool to cool off in and chill out.
Good 6.7
Pros: Location, cleanliness and friendliness
Cons: Continental breakfast was very low standard
Good 6.3
Pros: The location of the property was great, in the middle of town and easy to walk to the grocery store and WWII memorabilia.
Cons: It was very basic, the bed was a bit uncomfortable. I got bitten by something sitting in the lobby area. As there was no tv in your room, the general lobby area was the place where you could sit and watch something with an iPad. The internet was in and out, but the best service if you’re there for work. Bacon on toast was one small strip of bacon on a piece of toast. The shower head was broken and made it very hard to shower, but the water temperature was okay. If you require a tour, maybe do your homework, the hotel does recommend a tour guide. I found him to be very expensive and not worth the money.
Okay 5.0
Pros: The hotel was well looked after, things were clean and well kept.
Cons: The hotel is old, it is expensive for what it is and to have aircon - an essential for many, was very expensive. Some staff were helpful but others did not display good customer service. All in all, we left.
Good 6.7
Pros: Owner very helpful. Breakfast was good though basic. Garden and pool quiet and very nice when it was hot.
Cons: Garden rooms with fans are quite hot. Sink leaked and light didn't work very well.
Excellent 9.6
Pros: Good hotel and restaurant with friendly staff, on the main raod of Luganville.

Pros: The diving is a must, insane, fabulous, amazing...!
Cons: I liked everything!
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The food was fabulous, all activities were excellent and the staff were really friendly and helpful. Diving was amazing
Cons: Nothing
Okay 4.2
Pros: Nothing except leaving the last day Probably the guys for the diving. I have asked some informations to one of them. He was friendly and nice to explain the Coolidge Dive. Now if I was not so upset with the hotel and staff approach I would have booked with them but I have decided to give as less as I can to them so I have booked with another diving centre. Anyway they look professional and somebody was going with them.
Cons: Staff are really not motivated and not nice with the clients. I asked about the activities and they replied there is a book on the table go and read it so at the end we did some activities booking directly with them and not through the hotel as they add nothing only a fee. I asked for a taxi and they replied go on the road and stop them. They were not caring at all about you. I have found another couple that was there the first day and they said they moved to another hotel since they don’t like the staff. I would have done the same if not payed. The last 2 days we were alone in the hotel. The breakfast included, what they call continental breakfast is made of pancakes, white bread, milk, coffee (Nescafé), one plate with grapefruit,melon and cereals whatever else like eggs and sandwiches you should buy even a coffee other than Nescafé. Room are like the pictures, water in the shower with a very low flow and wc not working properly. Need a refurbishment. The swimming pool outside is not usable as always dirty and not cleaned. I did not see anybody in the pool in 5 days. The beach is not at all like the pictures and not nice very small and with boats around You are not in the city but you need a taxi or bus to get there (300 VNT each way), consider it The restaurant it is not bad (average), price is expensive to be Luganville but we mostly eat there to avoid transportation and moving. Menu is small but food is ok.
Good 7.1
Pros: Great staff. Good menu.
Cons: Location is a bit away from town. Good for diving trips though.
Mediocre 3.3
Pros: The local staff were very nice and pleasant. By far the stand out and only real positive of this establishment.
Cons: The place feels empty and has little to no atmosphere. The room was overpriced for the standard provided. We got a room at the The Espiritu which was so so much better, and cheaper in price. We felt that there was no real organisation to the hotel and tour desk (there is no desk that is clear to see) We asked one of the dive instructors (maybe a French lady) about options to go diving the following day, she was very unfriendly and tried to pressure close us on booking dives if she went back to ask the office which dive sites they were going on. Was quite awkward and very unprofessional. We did not dive once with them and had a fantastic experience diving with Pacific Dive who are based within The Espiritu Hotel. All in all to summarise, no we did not enjoy our stay and felt we we paid highest rates in all areas for poor return. Would not recommend.
Excellent 8.8
Pros: The bungalows are set in amongst some very old amazing trees. This setting is something that could be promoted more. Lovely staff, all very friendly. Location is out of the way for people who want to explore but perfect if you're there for diving.
Good 7.0
Pros: Breakfast was marginal - The location was great and the resort was pleasant. We enjoyed our stay and the quietness and peacefulness of the area. The diving and snorkelling are great. The staff were very pleasnt and helpful.
Cons: The resort is a little run down. There could have been a bit more choice for breakfast. More variety of fruit and cereal.
