TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
We stayed in a deluxe ocean view room which had a lovely view of the beach. We didn't leave the hotel once just relaxed by the pool and on the beach and enjoyed every single moment. The sea was too... Read more rough to swim but we found the sound of the crashing waves to be very relaxing. We were lucky enough to see baby turtles hatching and making there way to the sea which the staff helped with. Overall no complaints and would love to return. Read less
Stayed 5th nov till 19th. First week weather a little wet. Room was ok but around patio doors needs some attention very damp and in a poor state, and curtains need changing very dirty and one... Read more shorter than other. Bed was very comfortable very firm which was good for me. Bathroom well in need of complete renovation, but allways plenty of hot water, sink plug a nightmare. Lack of sockets none near a mirror. Plenty of lighting which was good hate dark rooms, air con good, maid service good allways came late morning. We stayed in ocean front room 237 nice veiw of beach and sea. I must say all staff where very friendly and ready to help if needed. Entertainment I enjoyed very much better than in a lot of other hotels we have stayed. Food, breakfast ok, lunchtime in waterfront very repetitive, dinner in main buffet was not really to our liking, the a la carts were ok. Dont get me wrong food looked very nice but not are taste. Desserts was very nice but again very repetitive, allways fruit and cheese and biscuits. Over all we had a good holiday and meet with some lovely people. It would be nice if tutle beach had an arrival and departure lounge. Having to depart our room at 12noon and our flight not till 8pm hanging around and only half hour for two people to shower at a slotted time is a pain. Oh forgot the turtles are amazing, very lucky to see one laying her eggs, and baby turtles. Read less

Stayed for ten nights, 7th time in Barbados, hotel is clean, staff friendly and helpful, nice area. Children's menu had to be asked for, I would prefer if staff offered! Unfortunately beach was not... Read more suitable for kids at this time of year,sea quite rough every day, we went to (boatyard)Carlisle bay as it was calm and clear and not too far by taxi, good for kids! The kids club at this property is brilliant, the staff are fab! Maradona the drink's waiter always smiling and happy and happy to help! The food here is ok, good selection but chef Mark went above and beyond to prepare a meal for us in the restaurant area as we couldn't get into asiagos! Much appreciated! Had a day out to crystal cove on west coast, arranged by turtle staff, lovely property and better beach, calm waters, better for swimming! Read less
This was our third visit to Turtle Beach, Barbados. We had a wonderful time. The resort is well cared for and the room was clean. Staff are really caring and would like to mention our welcome from... Read more Jason as we arrived and the care we had from Donna in the restaurants. Weather wasn't always sunny but we had an enjoyable holiday. We rescued a baby turtle ( who had managed to loose his way) wandering round the pool and with the help of Damian carried him to the sea. The only thing we were unhappy with was the number of discarded toys, inflatables and clothing left by departing guests which littered the area around the pool. Read less
