Eventually booked our return visit after last year's experience..BA this time. Hotel welcome was underwhelming this year, but we did get the ground floor rooms we requested. Staff and service very good mostly, though food on some nights disappointing..same leaky shower door (other guests had same problem) still not fixed after 3 attempts. Rooms are tired and need to be... More

This was our families first visit to the island of Barbados and definitely not our last. The Turtle Beach is an all-inclusive resort and one of the few on the island. I will break this review down by categories: Hotel: The hotel itself is nice and very clean. I was struck on how the staff is constantly cleaning and performing... More

A smallish hotel physically which we like, with good food, very nice rooms and really great staff with a "can do" attitude with nothing too much trouble. The specific drink I wanted was not available when I arrived, but it was in all the bars within an hour of my request. Thoroughly enjoyed this our second stay at Turtle Beach... More

We had an eventful week here.. as my son slipped by the pool and ended up in hospital the dr thought he had fractured his knee cap! A happy outcome of him being bruised only.. :) BUT the treatment we received from a member of staff had me in tears as she was soooooo rude to me as I stood... More

Would go back to Turtle Beach Resort again. Friendly, helpful staff. Good food, lots of food. This was our first trip to any island and we were very satisfied with Turtle Beach Resort. Went on two tours which were well worth the money and very enjoyable.

We stayed at Turtle Beach resort for a week at the end of July and got married in the gardens during our stay. Our flight was delayed by over 6 hours but on arrival the hotel staff couldn't do enough for us and sent food to our rooms. Our room was clean and spacious and overlooked the jacuzzi, there was...

This was our first trip to Barbados and the last foreign holiday with our children so we wanted something special for them. The holiday for a week cost a lot of money so our expectations were very high. I really want to say it was great but at times it was very dissappointing! I know the hotel can't help that... More

Turtle Beach Resort is good... I'd say not a 4* but a good 3* We organised our trip independently as we often do as Barbados is such an easy, safe and friendly island to navigate. The resort itself is in a great location...right on the beach and dead close to st Lawrence gap for food, drink, shops... We were in... More

Definitely not a 4*. Nice hotel, reasonable location and very nice staff. Food is very good but lacking seafood. Lots of birds everywhere and my daughter got pooped on twice whilst eating breakfast!! They even fly into the rooms to steal the coffee mate!! Had to 'shout' to get an upgrade on room as the 'Suite' recommended by Virgin for... More
