We recently returned from 8 days at turtle bay and we had a great time.
We arrived to a rum punch and a lovely greeting and were shown to a very well decked out room with a super view across a turquoise ocean. The pools and gardens were lovely and were a perfect relaxing setting and the beach itself was truly idyllic.
There are a few things though that would have improved our stay. The bar, reception and cleaning staff were very friendly however the waiters/waitresses could be a little dismissive at times, especially the breakfast chefs who at times bordered on rude. The food at breakfast was good, plenty of variety. Dinner was similar, especially asiagos which was our restaurant of choice at every opportunity! Lunch however tended to be a different deal, the buffet was very "samey" and tended to be left in the heaters for the whole 3 hour service. There was a grill at every sitting however so the was the opportunity to have something cooked on order which was good.
In general I really liked the resort and if you could change a few of the attitudes and improve the lunchtime meals it would have been 5 stars.
