Upon arriving the resort looked lovely , friendly welcome, booked in and taken to our room,we weren’t there 5 minutes and was offered drugs by the venders on the beach ( of course we declined) room looked nice , went for something to eat and the food wasn’t great but we ate as we were tired, ..... FOOD WISE , not the best, we ate out a lot as the food wasn’t nice unless you like salad ..... ENTERTAINMENT, shocking , they had a group called Virgo 2/3 times a week and one of them always looked like she was on drugs . ......STAFF , most were friendly and they like you more if you have young kids with you , Maradonna was great always smiling and chatty ..... ROOMS , very outdated .... if you want a relaxing holiday it’s ok as there is nothing onsite to do.... the resort is probably a 3 star, food 2 star, entertainment 2 star.. we paid a lot of money for the holiday but it certainly was not worth it.

I really feel compelled to write a review about this hotel ! Something I very seldom do ! We arrived at Turtle beach an yes we were a little underwhelmed like the reviews say the rooms are a little tired ! They are just right tho ! Clean bedding and thoroughly clean every day ! We spent relatively little time in the room ! The positioning of the hotel is perfect right at one side of the st Lawrence gap! The food at this hotel is insane some of the best all inclusive food we have ever had! Don’t think reems and reems of beautiful tasteless morsels like most all inclusive hotels ! Think 5 or 6 home cooked flavourful Caribbean dishes , lean cuts of meat home cooked puddings and fresh salads and vegetables. Forget processed food These dishes are cooked daily with love . The coffee shop is full of homemade cakes , beware they are so moorish ! We went out for dinner some evenings And that was also amazing! The staff at this hotel are incredible friendly polite and great fun . I can honestly say it was the best holiday we’ve ever had ! Don’t expect the ritz expect a true Caribbean experience tho .

If you are looking for a suitable place for your family with a big age range, this is perfect! Something for everyone, not too expansive so it's easy to roam and still find one another. Food is mostly self-serve, bar service is excellent, and pool options are also awesome. Highly recommend.
