After a poor experience in Turkey I vowed never to go all inclusive again. I'm glad I took a chance and tried this place. The food and service is superb. Everything is really well laid out and spotlessly clean. The staff are super helpful. The beach and watersports are fantastic and the kids club was out of this world -... More

This is the first review I have done and I have three to four holidays a year so I'm well travelled, the reason I feel so strong about leaving a review is I feel other people need to know my experience before booking !!! Check In:- On arrival I was disappointed that the hotel looked tired and not the standard... More

This was my first time to Barbados and other than reading and people telling me I had no idea what to expect. We have just returned from a 14 night stay at Turtle Beach and I can say I was sad to say goodbye to the place. From the moment I stepped out of the taxi I was impressed with... More

We have just returned from a 12 night stay at the Turtle Beach Resort and can honestly say we were devastated to be leaving . The resort was a wonderful place to spend our holidays, The staff from bell boys to restaurant staff and the Captains Sams guys at the waterfront were some of the nicest people we have had... More

This was our first visit to Barbados so we had no idea what to expect hotel wise but we are glad we chose this one. Several reviewers on here have valid comments but others are just lies - maybe from people who have other motives. Anyway here is mine, no agenda, no loyalty or connection to other establishments, just a... More

My wife and I stayed here prior to flying to Palm Island in the Grenadines and Barbados was beautiful! The beach and resort were fantastic! I'd go back in a heart beat. We walked through the shops and markets along the ocean and found people to be very friendly and welcoming!

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
