We had a good time at this hotel (apart from the noise of a hotel being built next door, and having our bedroom in a main corridor so we couldn't open the shutters during our stay) but it was far too expensive booking with Virgin. We definately would book direct with the hotel if we were to go back. The... More

The perfect introduction to Barbados! Our very first trip to the Caribbean. 15-23rd august 2014 We arrived and were given room on first floor. Did not like it so asked for room change to ground floor which they did and was perfect. We were not facing the pool but slightly on the side so gave us extra privacy for a... More

AMAZING! Once you're in the Caribean there should be little difference between resorts and hotels... except this stands out above all others because they have the greatest staff EVER. By the end of day 1 they knew our names, by day 2 they knew our drinks order. A great mix of honeymooners and families and a short taxi ride from... More

We are a family of three, 2 adults and a 15 year old daughter. We visited Barbados for 7 nights. Some people are saying, yes the hotel is in need of refurbishment but that hardly bothered my family at all. It is big enough to fit everyone so it was comfortable. The staff on the beach at Captain Sam's hut... More

I don't know where these people were staying, but certainly not at Turtle Beach. I am there now and the place is a dump. It's filthy and looks like they have not done a thorough cleaning in years. The room furniture is stained, old and makes you want to think twice before sitting on anything. There are only 3 electrical... More

The hotel is very clean and has everything you will need for a comfortable stay . The staff are very friendly and... More
