“Memorable anniversary weekend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

The awesome staff at Turtle Beach deserve all of the credit for making my surprise weekend one to remember, and much talked about by my husband and me. Upon check-in, I was advised that I could speak to the Executive Chef about my vegetarian (mostly vegan) diet. And so I did! Donald and Tracey came to our room and developed a meal plan with me based on what I needed and wanted. How awesome is that?! Sure enough, they kept to their word in the 6 meals to follow. The wait staff were also awesome and totally on the ball as we just had to show up and would be very kindly advised to indicate when I'd like my meal - which was always expertly prepared, flavoured and presented.

The housekeeping staff was warm, efficient and unintrusive - which one appreciates on an anniversary weekend. I felt truly special and very spoiled...but the thing is, Turtle Beach does this for every guest! We WILL return! Thanks Turtle Beach!

Room Tip: Room 2321 (where we were) overlooks the pool and has an ocean view...very spacious and quiet.

Back to Turtle Beach. Another fabulous holiday. Thanks to the staff, the food, the rooms,the beach. Hermanius is a gent. Sam and the crew a delight. Maradonna is the tops. Polite, friendly and very obliging. Our ages range from mid sixties down to eighteen months. We all want to go back. NOW!! This was our third visit, it was just as good as our first visit.
The ONLY drawback to this lovely hotel is the sea. It can be extremely rough, very,very dangerous for young children (and some not so young) if you are visiting this resort please be aware of this. The pools are plenty enough for most. The beach is a dream. The sun beds comfy. But keep your eyes on your kids in the sea. Do not leave them for a minute.Book this hotel, you are near to Oistins, The Gap and not too far from Bridgetown. The staff will help you with anything you want to do. The staff at reception are very knowledgable. I asked for balloons for a birthday. No problem, they duly arrived were installed secretly in a room for a surprise. I wanted to arrange a suprise meal at The Cliff no sooner said than done. Love it, go and enjoy.

Room Tip: The ordinary rooms are big enough! So don't book a suite unless big family.

We stayed at Turtle Beach Resort from 4/18/12 - 4/23/12 and were very pleased with the Resort. The staff was wonderful from the moment we arrived until we left; Jillian greeted us with a smile and offered us a drink (quite appreciated after a long day of travel), Hermanius brought our luggage to our room and took time to show us around the room and how to work everything, Alex, Dave, and all of the wonderful wait and service staff during meals were great (so many I could not recall too many names), Ryan, Duran, and the rest of the bar staff were also great (here too, so many names to remember), and of course there was the wonderful staff on the beach (Sam, Amra, Mosiah, and Ricky (more I'm sure). What a great team Sam has; arranging your loungers, providing towels, drinks, information and of course water sport assistance (thanks to Mosiah for being a great Hobie sailor!). Though I didn't retain the names of any service/cleaning staff they too were always very helpful, courteous and pleasant.

We were very impressed with the amount of people who were always doing something; cleaning pools, washing floors, raking the grass / sand, trimming trees, preparing dining, etc. There was never a still moment and the resort was quite neat and clean as a result.

The biggest impression was simply the kind, pleasant and accommodating personality of the staff. There was never a hesitation by anyone no matter what we asked for. Everyone (yes, everyone) was so very nice. If we had questions about anything around Barbados and a person didn't have the answer they would simply call over someone who could provide the answer / info for us.

The resort was in a beatiful location; nice beach, beautiful surf. The grounds were very well maintained and the landscape was just what you would picture from a Tropical Resort.

The room was nice (I'm not a big "room" critic especially since I don't intend to spend much time in my room when on vacation :)). There was plenty of space in our room, large bathroom, sitting area w/ sofa, spacious balcony with table and chair and a wonderful view of the grounds, pool, beach and ocean (we paid for a pool / garden view room but had a clear view to the beach / ocean as well).

Room Tip: We prefer to not be on the first level so that we have a little more privacy from our Balcony. This...

Excellent facilities, good food and plenty of variety whether buffet or a-la-carte, friendly staff. Very nice stretch of beach just metres from the actual hotel and good size pools - ideal for kids.
Overall an excellent location.

Just returned from a fantastic family holiday at Turtle Beach. The Hotel was perfect, the staff were friendly and accommodating especially Captain Sam and his team at the Watersports hut.
The buffets were varied and plentiful as were the drinks, beautiful beach and a wonderful view of the pool and beach from room 419. Very relaxing !
