As for the bugs, I suggest you visit the Zoo at "La Vanille", as they have a large collection of different insects, including the giant roaches (they are not alive there, but dried and pinned to the wall).

In good Hotels you normally shouldn't have roaches - in cheaper places you can have some. But these big Madagascan roaches live in the forest anyway. Never seen one while there.

There are giant turtles, but it's best to see them in the zoos. In La Vanille you can actually touch them, feed them, children can ride on them and so on.

I don't know too much about the sharks, they are not near the beach (as there's a big reef around the island). But I know that there are some poisones fish, like the stone-fish, which can sting, when you step on it. So it's better to were slippers when walking in the water.
