Spent seven nights at Turtle Beach from 13th April. Overall impressions of the hotel are excellent, Room was absolutely fantastic and lots of space for two adults and two Children with a great view... Read more (We had an ocean view suite) or the FBI room as it was described to us on arrival. Staff were fantastic, Watersports team especially with Captain Sam and Ricky really friendly and you couldnt help smile along with them, my son still goes around quoting Ricky. Housekeeping also deserve special mention for their efforts and great service especially on our last day, I am only sorry we could not thank them in person on the day of our departure. Really nice touches for our aniversary with a hand signed card and chilled sparlking wine waiting for our return on our aniversary afternoon. Dining options were also very good and the ability to see the a la carte and buffet menus in the morning helped us plan our dining, Food was very good with lots of choice. We all enjoyed the pool, beach was also very nice only down side being the waves. The beach was red flagged for the duration of our stay, great for jumping in the surf but not for swimming. We did go up on to the West coast where the beaches were truly amazing. Overall a great hotel and a great holiday. Thank you Turtle Beach. Read less

Have returned from a lovely holiday at Turtle Beach in Barbados. We spent 11 nights in total (family of 2 adults and a 10 and 12 year old). Pretty hotel on the south coast of the island. Our... Read more room was a good size with views over the main pool and the ocean. Everything is very clean with bed linen changed every couple of days. The only minor criticism is with the towels - they are rather small for bath towels and could do with being updated. Around the hotel we found the staff very friendly and couldn't fault the service - very attentive at all times. A special mention must go to the Waterfront boys (Capt Sam, Ricky and others) for giving the whole place a fun vibe - you couldn't help but smile and be happy when they were around. We were all impressed with the quality of the buffet food and having a fussy eater in our party there was always the opportunity to order something "off plan" from the kids menu. We took the opportunity to visit the sister hotel Crystal Cove and had a very enjoyable day there too. Be aware that the beach at Turtle Beach is fairly choppy but perfect for body boarding/surfing. A visit to the sister hotel Crystal Cove satisfied the craving to experience the calm clear waters you would expect of the Caribbean. This beach was also better suited for some of the water sports on offer. If you are a keen cyclist like my husband you have the opportunity to hire a bike which he did and travelled up the west coast of the island up to Mullins Bay. Rentals can be arranged via the hotel and the bike is delivered to you. Entertainment in the evenings was varied - two shows really stand out the Virgo girl trio of singers and the Wednesday night show with stilt walkers, steel drums and dancers. A "must do" is a catamaran day cruise where you have the opportunity to swim with the sea turtles, snorkel and have lunch by a beach. We booked the Cool Runnings cruise and had the most fantastic day - highly recommended. Cost $180 BDS per adult and $90 BDS per child all arranged via the hotel. Lunch is included as is the return transfer from your hotel to Bridgetown where you board the catamaran. In terms of eating/drinking out, there are many lovely restaurants and bars within walking distance of the hotel in St Lawrence Gap. Don't miss the traditional Oistins Friday Night Fish Fry. A bustling night for both tourists and locals - fresh fish cooked to order by street vendors with live music and craft stalls. Overall a very enjoyable holiday and will definitely be going back.

Apr 14, 2015 - info4youCardiff - cardiff

I have to start off by saying that certain members of the staff here are amazing, a special thanks to sheree in the restaurant who looked after my daughters absolute fear of the birds by always... Read more seating us in the least likely 'attacked' seats. Let me explain, it's a carribean island buffet restaurant = pesky birds flying in and around because people get up and down leaving food exposed! The staff do keep on top of clearing tables but unfortunately the bird issue in my opinion is the norm in the carribean where food is exposed! Our room hmmm well for what we paid for this holiday my expectation was somewhat disappointed. As previous reviewers have said things need a little overhaul. We (3 adults 46,23 & 20) had (room 212) two single beds and a large sofa bed so overall a good sized room, with great view and balcony. (If you're used to 4-5* you will feel a bit cheated here, toiletries are dull and minimal, towels a bit stiff, no gowns or slippers and ironing facilities are dated), nothing in the mini fridge, cleanliness was good. The pools weren't heated and as unfortunately the weather wasn't very hot all week it meant a chilly swim. Beach is the Atlantic Coast not carribean so it is choppy hence the type of water sports on offer (but go catch a bus or taxi for a day to sister hotel crystal cove for alternative day) Be clear this is a family hotel which was swarming with children over the easter holidays, and went very quiet quickly afterwards, which suited us! DO NOT LET THIS STOP YOU GOING HERE as the staff, water sports, entertainment,(oh the evening entertainment was first class) and most times food is good to at times excellent (Asiagos italian was wonderful especially on the first night when they did a candlelit supper with candles and lanterns hanging all over the place, in fact we felt a bit cheated 2nd time, as it was back to just lights, please continue the candlelit nights) Hotel is based in a good location from airport and Oistins (do go if staying over in a Friday) taxis are cheap and I recommend hiring one for a day trip they charge between $25-40 per trip and /or per hour, do ask around. This place ended up feeling quite magical like a large extended family home, so we will return even though it's not up to our usual higher standard of rooms, but sometimes you just have to relax about things and enjoy.
