So... my boyfriend and I had been searching for a reasonable, yet decent place for a while... and in my internet research, I saw Turtle Beach.. I instantly fell in love with the pics of the pool posted both here (on Trip Advisor) and on FB... I called the resort for prices and after some comparison, realised it was one of the more affordable all inclusive packages around. We booked...
Two weeks ago, we headed to Tobago for a short two night stay at Turtle Beach.. Let me say this, upon arrival, the guards at the front door were so pleasant and greeted us with such warmth that we literally thought they were Ushers!! We proceeded to check in and again, was welcomed in a very warm and lovely manner which included our "welcome drinks"... Given our key and directed to our room, we were pleasantly surprised that everything looked exactly as they did in the good pics!! The pool was immaculate and the rooms were perfectly clean and spacious! I inspected the tiles, cause I hate dirty bathrooms... and to my pleasant surprise (cause I read some reviews here that said the tiles were dirty)... they weren't!! Everything was amazing!! For the rest of our stay we did not need to leave the hotel... nor did we stay stuck in our room... we mingled with the staff at the bar... all pleasant men.. Raul, Mark, Jeffrey and Kashief... We ate and drank to our hearts' delight.. the food was always exceptional and the drinks were tailor made if we needed it to be!!
Our review of the service (again, as we had read here that some of the staff were unwelcoming and unfriendly)... well... that was not true for us! Every single member of staff that we came into contact with, either in the dining room, the bar, the guards, the water sports guys... and the cleaners... were ALL very pleasant, courteous and helpful! Front desk staff was amazing! Esther was exceptional and we really couldnt thank them enough for making our stay so wonderful!
We shall be back to this resort in May of this year... and this time, we're taking the kids and staying for a couple days more!! To all of you thinking of going to this Resort... please ignore the negative reviews and go see for yourself!! You will absolutely love it! We sure did!
Ps... the Resort was not packed to capacity at the time we stayed, so the only time we really saw many people there, was for meals and entertainment! other than that, we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves... loved it!
