We have had A very good holiday at Turtle Beach With everything supplied that we could wish for by a super friendly efficient staff. The food is never ending and on the whole very good. The room... Read more maybe could do with a small update in the bathroom area but was OK. The only drawback was that a large party seemed to upset other guests which did seem to cause a troubled atmosphere. Otherwise we had a very good holiday at a good thoughtful Hotel. Read less
We did a cruise and stay with Thomson's. But this review is of the Turtle beach hotel only. Upon arrival we were met by a lovely lady ( I forget her name). Check in was simple, as she did all the... Read more hard work, whilst we sat with a rum punch in hand. Once shown to our room, we were very pleasantly surprised, the room was large, light and airy. A large balcony overlooked the pool and the beach. It was heavenly. Our first meal was in the buffet restaurant, and was beautiful. Candles lit the tables and it was all very lovely. The food was of a very high standard throughout our stay. Yes, the birds were about at breakfast, but it didn't bother us a jot. We also ate in the Italian restaurant one evening, which was excellent. Very attentive staff, and food was delicious. We stayed all inclusive at the resort, and the food and drinks were fabulous. Special mention to the spring turtle cocktail. ( Ohhhhhhh take me back). The sea was rough most of the time, and unsuitable for swimming. We went to Crystal cove one day ( sister hotel), and the sea there was still, and great for swimming. So I would recommend that you take a day there. We did a boat trip and swam with the turtles whilst at Crystal cove. We travelled with 2 children, age 7 & 9. They both had a stupendous time. They were 100% happy 100% of the time. They really enjoyed the pool, and equally enjoyed going into the hotels kids club. The ladies who ran the club were lovely, and very kind to the children. We took a trip out to Oistins fish fry on the Friday night, and for me, this is a must do if you are visiting Barbados. I can only describe it as an outdoor Caribbean nightclub................. I didn't want to come away! ;) The fish dinner was great. A varied amount of fish to try, and lots of places to choose from. Our taxi driver recommended Pats place, and it was brilliant. The cleanliness of the hotel, and all areas were acceptable, however we did find that in our room the floor was getting dirtier day by day, and didn't seemed to be cleaned at all, nor was the furniture polished. ( We didn't mention this to the hotel or our cleaner though, so cannot really call it a complaint). Clean towels and bed linen provided daily. We renewed our wedding vows whilst at TB, The wedding co ordinator was very good, and the day was beautiful. Great service from this aspect, and highly recommended for anyone to renew vows, or get married here. It was a very chilled out fantastic holiday, and we wouldn't hesitate to go back.........soon please!! :D Read less
We visited the Turtle Beach Hotel in November 2014 with friend's. I had high expectations when we booked this Hotel and was not disappointed. The Hotel staff were very good and Ryan mixed a cool Rum... Read more sour, booking the Restaurant's was easy and the food was excellent. The room was on the 4th floor and had a great view of the beach and pool. I have tried to find something to be negative on and can only say the Coffee machine in the Restaurant failed on occasions. If we visit Barbados again I would not hesitate to book this Hotel. During our stay there was a planned outage of the electricity supply and the Hotel provided transport to Brown's beach. They put on a barbecue, Sun beds and a bar, which was totally unexpected. We had a great time and the local people are very friendly. Read less
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
