My grown daughter and I stayed here two weeks ago. We were looking for an escape from cold New Hampshire and simply unwind. This delivered in spades. If one is looking for a 5 star, amenity galore "resort" than this would not be for you. However if one wants views, tranquility,

My husband and I stayed at the Resort and really enjoyed it. We stayed in the Hibiscus cottage (studio). It was very cozy and quiet. We used our private hot tub every night. The resort has lush gardens and a very old Florida, Key West kind of feel to it. We pretty much had the

Tropical and right on water. Room was cute w/full kitchen. Stayed in the Caribbean room. Best room (quiet and secluded somewhat)! The hot tub outside of the room was great to have, but very old and run down (peeling apart inside). Other than that, hotel offers bikes and kayaks

We thank you for taking the time to write a review. We enjoyed having you and your family stay with us. The hot tub was checked upon your departure, our cover is slightly used due to it's exposure facing directly on the water but no issues were found the inside of the tub. Each of our cottages have their own private hot tubs that are cleaned and checked prior to any arrivals. We are glad you made the most of your "tropical right on the water" stay with us. Hope to see the little family again soon! Sunny Regards, Your friends at Turtle Beach Resort and Inn

My wife and I visited Turtle Beach Resort the night of our wedding and stayed for 3 nights. We stayed in the Country Cottage and our stay was nothing short of amazing. The jacuzzi was a great amenity to have after all the stress and hard work we put into our wedding. We will

Thank you for spending your Honeymoon with us, a big congratulations to you both. We are delighted that your stay in Country Cottage met your expectations. It's one of our most popular cottages situated almost directly on the water with amazing views of the Bay and private deck overhanging the water. The Jacuzzi definitely is a great stress reliever and quite romantic. We thank you for taking the time to write the review and wish you both love, health and everlasting happiness. We hope to see for your anniversary if not before ! Sunny Wishes, Your friends at Turtle Beach Resort and Inn.

If you are expecting the Ritz you will be disappointed. It is clean and can use an update but all I can say I have stayed at 5 star resorts before and I enjoyed this. Very different but very relaxing

Thanks for your inquiry about bikes. Weekends are busier than midweek nights so it would depend when you are visiting as to how many guests take the bikes we provide for free. . There is also a new free trolley now that starts right near our resort and goes up and down the 8 mile island from 8 am til 10 pm or longer that you can take also for free transportation. There is also a bike rental shop by the first bridge where you can rent your own bikes. We usually have enough bikes for our guests recreational use, since we have the boats and beach and pool that are popular activities.

Hi The closest boat rentals are Bayfront Marina (a 2 minute walk from The Resort) and Siesta Key Marina (approx. 3 miles away). Both have full day rentals (8am to 5pm) but neither appear to allow overnight rentals. Our docks can accommodate boats up to 28 feet in length. We have 8 bikes and poles split between our 2 resorts and are currently replacing and adding to our stock. And, yes, the disturbance caused by our new maintenance worker's car has been addressed. Sunny Days.

You can smoke no problem anywhere you want there are ash trays available on the tables as for the military service discounts not sure sorry I have no idea but worth asking there's an American flag at the entrance.

The unit my wife and I stayed in was not handicap accessible. I do not recall seeing any units with ramps, but it's definitely worth calling and asking the management because they'll do whatever they can to help. I hope you get to enjoy a stay at Turtle Beach Resort!
