We revisited Turtle Beach this summer and once again had an excellent time. A holiday here is the most relaxing kind of trip we have been on, everything is sorted, food and drinks all of a good standard.

The weather in August was not perfect, well it is the rainy season, and we had a tropical storm on the last day, but all the staff worked tirelessly to keep the hotel running smoothly, so it was fun really.

The rooms have been done up a bit since 2009, which was nice although the common areas are a little more tired. All round it was all fine though. We might go back again,

Room Tip: We stayed on the top floor overlooking the garden and it was nice and quiet. You also get more of a sea view.

Wonderful hotel, totally geared up for families.

we have stayed at the hotel about three or four times, and enjoyed every single time.

our favourite room was room 420.

Excellent food, wonderful staff, great pools. The sea is a bit rough, but still gorgeous!

Just returned from one heavenly week at Turtle Beach. On arrival met by very friendly and welcoming staff and of course the obligatory "first of many" rum punches. Very short admin duties for checking in, then we were shown to our room and introduced to all the facilities by the "bellboy". Had paid for an ocean view junior suite and it was well worth the extra as it was exactly as described overlooking the beautiful beach and sea. We were situated on the third floor and to me this was perfect as the views were better and gave more privacy when on the balcony. We had already been booked into the restaurant for the evening so looked forward to a pleasant meal. Breakfasts and lunches were buffet style and ample choices for all. Lots of local dishes to try together with salads and burgers and hot dogs for the less adventurous. All food was clearly labelled which was a great help. Evening meals were all a la carte and restaurants had to be booked in the morning at breakfast where menus were on display. Choice of three restaurants on site, all equally good. Have to mention the friendliness and helpfullness of all the staff in the hotels. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Drinks were available at all times including main brand drinks. Helpfull advice was always on hand from the reception staff and "bellboys". Decided to use local transport into Bridgetown and local towns which was an experience in itself. For just 2 Barbados dollars you can jump a "white van" and truly join the locals. Give it a try it's fun. All in all this hotel is in a good area, easy to walk around "the Gap", easy access to local transport and very safe, clean and friendly hotel. Entertainment at night is very limited so if you need a bit more "lively atmosphere" you would need to walk down into St Lawrence Gap for that, which is two minutes around the corner.

Room Tip: Preference to us was on third floor as the view of the ocean is superb.

This is the 2nd time we've stayed at this hotel (the 1st time was 10yrs ago, and it hasn't changed one bit), and we wouldn't hesitate to go back. It is situated on a beautiful stretch of beach with free water sports (apart from jet ski), a 10 minute walk into The Gap, (visit Pisces Restaurant there), and a short journey to Oistins, which is a 'must do' on a friday, just for the experience!
The room we stayed in was ground floor, overlooking the pool, very spacious, clean and quiet. Staff are friendly and helpful, and we met some great fellow holidaymakers. Evening entertainment was hit and miss (don't really want to hear a violinist) and would have preferred more salads to hot food at lunchtime.
We visited Daphne's on the West coast, but very expensive, £40 return taxi, and £140 bill for 2 people with free desserts! and it wasn't that fantastic to be honest.
Barbados is a relaxing place, but soooh hot!!
We would definitely recommend this hotel and South coast.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms 127, 128, 129, 130, 131, These were ground floor overlooking the pool, so you could slip out of your balcony straight into the water. You could also watch the eve entertainment if you wanted to sit out on your patio area, which finishes around 10.30, so not noisy either.

One arrival we were greeted with rum punch... This is a must! It was amazing! Then we were taken to our room which was beautiful and had everything we needed even an iPod dock. We ate at all three restaurants during our stay and all where all faultless. The facilities were all peferect and in sum we had a fantastic time and can't wait to get back! Every one is friendly and wanting to help we loved it!
