A piece of Paradise!
This was my fifth stay at Turtle Cove and my only real holiday in 2 years. The place is fantastic, a welcoming haven for gay men and the occasional stray lesbian couple or curious/nudist straight client. The resort has its own attractive beach and pool, both clothing optional. Clientelle comes from all walks of life, with none of the posing, pretentious muscle boy nonsense one sees in other places. The food and drink are superb. Activities include sronkelling, diving in the Great Barrier Reef, rainforest walks, massages etc. Or, as I did, one can relax by the pool, swim in the Coral Sea, do gin and tonic at noon, meet old friends, make new friends, flirt and play. The hot tub by the pool is usually active at night. My only 1 minor peeve is that, although the gym is adequately equipped, both treadmills were out of order during my entire stay and very little was done to get them fixed. Surely some staff initiative can be taken without waiting for the owner to show up and take command?
Caution: Marine stingers are present November-May, making swimming in the sea risky.
