They have a happy hour special. Draft beer three dollars, one four dollars, my ties, piña colada's, rum runners are five dollars. The bartenders are very friendly and attentive. They are very knowledgeable about where to go and what to see and where to eat...More

Almost always busy, especially during happy hour. Last weekend was a show with a group of drunken wedding attendees. Shade and sun and always fun to people watch at Turtle's!

We really enjoyed the breaks from the sun with a cold cocktail during the day. Each day, happy hour begins at 3:00 PM and runs until 5:00 PM. They have drink specials during this time including our favorite, the frozen Rum Runner with a "topper"...More

Although I waited way too long for my order, once I got it, it was delicious (three different items).

Turtle's is the Pool Bar for the Sundial Beach Resort and Spa. The food is average, but the prices are not- $$$$

We walk to this cute little tiki beach bar when we stay at a neighboring complex. The happy hour is daily from 3-5 and we make it most days. Get the Pina Colada! Bar tenders are great and the food is great too!

We stayed at the Sundial and visited Turtle's Beach & Pool Bar a few times. Friendly service, great drinks, right by the beach.
