I have stayed at Bahia Principe before and Turquesa was not my first choice. would rather have been at Bavaro or Esmeralda. Anyway besides a few small complaints about the room this resort is well worth checking out. Make your restaurant reservations in advance because they're hard to get into. The food in the main buffet was good especially for breakfast. Also depending on what you like the dinner buffets were good with a themed night every night. Now for the beach, there was seaweed everywhere. piles and piles of it. Bavaro beach is nice but the seaweed was too much.
Turquesa itself was ok, nothing special. We were treated very good by the staff. It's only an 11-12 minute walk to the beach and there are shuttles running that will take you there too. All in all this resort is worth checking out.More
