Visited Turtle Beach for 2 weeks at the end of April for the cricket. Hotel in a great location walking distance to The Gap. Stayed in an Ocean view junior suite. Nice accommodation big rooms and... Read more balcony overlooking the ocean. Good pool areas, the obvious problems with sun beds, not supposed to reserve them but people did and perhaps the hotel should enforce the rules. Some were reserved all day with no one one them. Staff around the pool excellent, fresh fruit, ice lollies brought around in the morning. Tended to have the fruit instead of breakfast. Evening food very good didn't try the a la carte but heard other people say they were good. We ate in the buffet restaurant and plenty of choice and good quality. Good choice at lunch the only thing I would say is that some of the food was uncovered like the pizza and accessible by the birds, wouldn't take much to put a clear cover on. The birds are something you get used to and are the same everywhere in Barbados. Beautiful beach sea a bit rough for swimming but great for body boarding. Sun beds on beach great, staff will put them wherever you want. Good evening entertainment although finished far too early I know you have to respect families but could go on a bit later than 10 pm. All the staff really friendly and helpful, nothing too much trouble. All in all a fantastic holiday in a great hotel. Read less
Stayed here for a week with my late husband we had a lovely relaxing holiday met lovely people enjoyed strolls along the white sands and watched the baby turtles hatching and making their way to the... Read more sea. enjoyed walks along St Lawrence Gap where we had been several times before but probably enjoyed this hotel the best. Read less
The staff are great . Ricky on the Beach and the lovely waitress Jennifer enriched our Holiday,, we stayed for 16 nights to watch the cricket and see a little of Barbados! Our room was a little... Read more basic but the view from 406 was worth the hike up to the 3rd floor. Throwing back the curtains to look at the ocean and the beach every morning was brilliant, The Buffets don't offer a very wide selection of dishes so head for the Al a Carte each evening,booking is essential although they don't ever seem to be full.. Struggle to see that Asiagos is "fine" dining...Uk chains like Prezzo do the same thing...Perhaps the management should visit "Champers" just up the road to try "Fine" dining at a reasonable price.. But we really enjoyed the atmosphere at the Hotel at its one of the Best Caribbean hotels we have stayed at! Read less
Stayed here for one week as a couple in the early spring. Have traveled extensively to Caribbean destinations, and thought this charming resort ranked up with some of our favorite hotels. The best... Read more feature of this resort is the friendly, helpful staff. We never encountered anyone who did not make us feel welcome. The resort itself is well-kept, on a lovely (but small) stretch of beach in Dover. It is very well situated and we were able to walk to the Gap, the Friday Fish fry and many other local attractions. The meals and beverages we had at the resort were very good, well presented and cooked to our liking. Make your dinner reservations early to get your preferred times at Asiagos and the Seaside restaurant in the evening. Our room was fine, but air conditioner broke many times during our stay which left our room very humid. We had to leave the doors open at night to allow for a comfortable sleep. It would be nice if the mini-fridges were stocked at least with bottled water given the warm climate. We ordered room service one night and it was wonderful. We only used the beach area as the pool zones were occupied with children and water toys. If you are a pool person and want a quiet pool atmosphere, you may want to consider an adults only resort. The pools are very kid friendly, and there was no swimup bar. This did not bother us as we visit Barbados for the beach. The beach had plenty of loungers, and Captain Sam and his team went out of their way to accommodate us daily (catamaran, arranging our chairs, drinks, you name it!). Overall, we had a great experience and would return to this hotel. Please msg me if you have any questions, or are considering this hotel. Read less
We had a wonderful vacation here. The resort is clean, classy and comfortable with very nice rooms. While we were there I celebrated my birthday, so there was a birthday card and bottle of champagne... Read more in the room when we arrived. The staff also recognized my birthday with song and a cupcake on the actual day. The staff can not do enough for you. Especially the wonderful guys at Captain Sams Shack on the beach. We actually were reprimanded for trying to turn our chairs ourselves. Ricky and Dario are great guys and make you feel like you never want to go home. If you're looking for quiet waters this is not your spot. The waves aren't enormous but, there are constant waves here to challenge you. However, the sister resort, Crystal Cove, has quieter waters and you can visit there and enjoy the all inclusive offers as well. The only disappointment I found was, we were told there was a water taxi that could shuttle you between the 4 sister resorts for free. Unfortunately, it does not go to Turtle Beach because of the rougher waters so you need to take a taxi or the bus. Oh, while in Barbados you HAVE to experience the Reggae Buses. It's an experience unto itself ! There is entertainment every evening and Sunday mornings there are local merchants with very nice individual and unique wares for sale. We were on the 4th floor with an amazing ocean view and kept our sliders open every night to listen to the relaxing sounds of the ocean. No bugs here .... only the little birds who fly into your room to steal the sugar and creamer packages. So cute. St. Lawrence Gap is right there and is a nice experience by day or evening. The pools are clean, never made it to the gym (oh well), and it seems they have many activities for the children. The food ( I think I gained 10 lbs.) and the drink are both in excess. We brought water bottles,(no small cups for us. We Are Professionals) and they gladly filled them to the top. The only downside I could state would be, the pools could be open later, 8:00, and, even though it is a lovely beach (no coral in the water at all) there are no shells to find because of the constant waves. However, one can visit Crystal Cove for the day and search for small shells and sea glass. The amazing people at Turtle Beach make you feel so welcome and secure with your surroundings, I can't imagine anyone having less than the best time there. Hopefully I will have the opportunity to return to Barbados, The gem of the Caribbean, and I know I will definitely be staying at Turtle Beach. Thank you for wonderful memories. Read less
