We requested Turtle bay if we could add some more two days and they gladly agreed. The rooms are... More

Well, a home a way from it was from the General Manager to the hotel they overwhelmingly warm and hospitable. We enjoyed the food, the room that helps you forget civilization as they don't have TV which makes it all worth. The beach as much as it was being washed away the morning coral walk revealed that nature is still... More

If you a looking for a romantic getaway or a quiet and peaceful holiday, this is not the place for you. The rooms were incredibly small. They were dull and the decor was just distasteful. No TV in the rooms. The walls in the eating areas were quite dusty. You have to pay for WiFi. The juice offered is very... More

This is an all inclusive hotel with food and drink available almost all day. There are shows and discos in the evening. The staff are attentive and helpful, calling guests by name and remembering choices. The rooms are fairly basic but comfortable and the reason why this hotel is not 5*. There is an adults only pool completely separate from... More

Love coming here!! It's been a favourite family haunt for years due to the high level of care that goes into the hotel and its guests. There's always something going on for everyone who's interested. It's a great place for families with younger kids and with teenagers. Amazing beaches and sports centre!
