“Terrific Turtle Beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2012

We stayed at Turtle beach during February half term, and we had a delightful experience at this splendid hotel. The general staff were attentive, polite and courteous and contributed significantly to the overwhelmingly positive experience that was our holiday.
On a similar note, the management staff were wonderfully welcoming and friendly, and most importantly displayed an obvious interest in the wellbeing of their customers.
The food at Turtle Beach was good, and there was a wide (and warm!) selection of different cuisines in the buffet restaurant. Likewise, the sea front restaurant (which had a focus on fish) offered speciality Caribbean Cuisine, such as the well known “Flying Fish” and “Snapper”. Finally “Asiagos”, the Italian restaurant, was equally impressive and offered a smarter and more elegant dining experience.
The pool and garden areas were exceptionally well maintained and were complete with luxurious loungers boasting canopies to shield you from the heat of the day. Although we did not embark on any water sporting adventures, it was apparent that this section of the hotel was well managed and the beach staff were pleasant and wonderfully Caribbean in their laid back approach to life.
The public areas and bedrooms at Turtle Beach were well furnished, slick and modern in their appearance, in keeping with the overall light and airy appearance of the complex, heightening the holiday experience.
Overall, we had a wonderful stay at Turtle Beach, thanks to the staff, appearance and location of this tremendous hotel, and wish to return in the near future.

My fiancée and our 8 year old love it here- we stayed in Aug 2011 and July 2010. The staff are super- friendly, pools and beach lovely, constant breeze to keep you cool, best cocktails I've experienced at any all-inclusive. The kids club are excellent (I'm a teacher) and our daughter loved it there. Food is great (I'm veggie so can be picky) and we will definitely go back!

I would like to start off by saying overall my experience was good... the service that my daughter (21st bday) and our friends rcvd from the FEMALE waiters we horrible. As if we were bothering them @ WORK.. Anyway, although 90% of the female staff were rude, we did have others like Hilary & the other gentlemen who were very polite and made sure we were taken care of when we were seen. Also my fave was Cherrie-Ann from guest services who was VERY friendly and the was 1 other waiter who worked @ Asiagos Italian restaurant who was sooooooooooo NICE and put the other women to shame.. Also Captain Sam and "The Crew" (Water Sports) were the BEST.... VERY helpful and accomodating.... also if you're looking 4 nice clubs that play a variety of music "SUGAR" was very nice, we also went to the fish market, harbour lights, and Swimming w/the Turtles/fish.... Good times ;-)

Room Tip: higher floors give u a better ocean view ;)

Where do I start? I and a friend joined our travel family at the Turtle Beach Resort during Memorial Day weekend. The hotel and the staff were awesome. We arrived after 10pm and the hotel staff still greeted us with a smile. Security escorted us to our room just to make us feel comfortable about being out at night. The room was nice and spacious with a pool view. The staff, from breakfast to lunch to dinner, was excellent. They exceeded all expectations and truly made us feel like we were in paradise. When we left the resort during the day they were able to tell us where to go and what to do and what was happening around the island. The watersports offered were great. Captain Sam and his crew were the BEST! The weather...the hotel staff...the hotel room...the island....all worked together to create a memorable trip. All around this was the most amazing trip I've had all year thus far. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Barbados!

Room Tip: A/C worked great in all rooms and most of the views are either of the pool or the ocean. A great pl...

My husband and I stayed at Turtle Beach Resort hotel, 26th June for 2 weeks. We went for the wedding of my stepson. I had read all the relevant reviews on Trip Advisor and went with an open mind. Firstly I must say that it is a Resort rather than a Hotel, therefore, one cannot expect to have star ratings as one does with hotels. Having said that, the staff are really fantastic! They really make you feel you are important to them, and go out of their way to help in any way they can! The facilities are very good, the beach boys will get you sunbeds and drinks to your hearts content, with a smile!!!
Thats what we don't get here in uk..... smiles all the time!
The rooms are super comfortable, beds fantastic. Air conditioned, coffee, tea making facilities in the rooms plus fridge to keep your drinks cool.
The hotel is all inclusive, and lots of choise, much better than all inclusive in Europe.
I would advise anyone who visits, to see something of the island apart from staying all the time at the resort. There is lots to see. We had a few trips out with different taxi drivers that the hotel arranges, they are all really informative and helpful, we learnt so much about Barbados and the people from these guys.
Do try to visit Oilstins Fish night on a Friday, but beware booking with Virgin, get a taxi instead it comes cheaper!
The night of the wedding, a turtle came and laid her eggs on the beach, the Turtle Protection team came along and safeguarded them, seems like they are all being removed and taken.
Whatever you do, enjoy Turtle Beach Resort and Barbados!

Room Tip: We had a garden room suite which was right next to the pool, v.good.
