We had a very good experience with Turtle Bay Villa and hosts. Peter and Viel were quick to respond to my questions and the answers I received were honest and accurate. We started out with 12 guests but due to work some were not able to attend. Our hosts adjusted the cost accordingly so we were satisfied with the outcome. This was the first time with VRBO/Homeaway that I had to leave a deposit in cash so I was worried about not being refunded but everything was fine in the end.
This house is a small boat ride from the town of Saband which is about a half hour so if you don't mind getting on a Banca in the water then you will be okay. I had my 80 year old mother with me and although we had to help her climb in and out of the boat, we all thought it was a fun time.
The house itself is beautiful and well done and the surrounding area is true jungle so beware of giant bugs and mosquitos. Our helpers Mark, DG and family were all very efficient when we had problems in the house and helped us with getting permits to
the Underground River. The navigators of the bancas were all great sailors and were especially knowledgeable especially since part of our stay was during a storm.
Overall, we had a great time and enjoyed the remoteness and the beauty of the beach and sea. If we were to come back, we would have to definitely stay a few more days. Thank you.
We had an amazing time at Floral Island! The island itself is very easy to get to from the Marina. We thought it would be further once we boarded the boat but it was surprisingly quick. Our hosts were very fun and incredibly gracious. Floral did an impromptu cooking class with us because we loved all the food so much and wanted to take a little piece home with us. The rooms have something to offer for those who want a luxury beach side experience without all the crowds. It was a perfect stay. The snorkeling reef is great and there is an abundance of fish, coral, and giant clams. Walking to the back of the island and checking out the little fishing village, taking out the canoe and watching the stars in the evening by the fire made for a perfect relaxing holiday.
