Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

We stayed in a one bedroom condo on the bay. Beautiful scenery, great decor and just a wonderful stay. We had drinks and snacks at the Commonwealth Club. All in all we had a wonderful time! It's really nice that the Commonwealth now has a liquor license. Cocktails and apps are a good way to end the day.

We are so excited that we can now sell adult beverages! Green Turtle Bay has been in business for 30 years and just this spring our county voted to allow alcohol sales. Much more convenient for our customers. Thank you so much for the great review, taking time to write and we hope to see you again soon.

Condo #328 was clean and nicely decorated. The resort was well-maintained. The Staff were nice. Boat rental is a rip off. 2 days @ $252. Motor problems. Used only 2 hours. Staff not responsive at all.

Thank you for the great overall review of the resort. Our staff works really hard and its so rewarding to hear that you enjoyed your condo. We are sorry your boat rental was not up to your standards.

Enjoyable all around! Excellent accommodations in a updated, three bedroom condo with a screened-in front porch to sit and enjoy coffee and watch the deer. Furnishings, linens, kitchen, etc. were very well maintained and updated. Dinner at the Club was great. Only disappointment was the indoor pool hours were published as open until 7, but when we arrived at 5:40,...

Appreciate the great review! We are so glad you enjoyed your condo unit and the wild life around the bay. We have a resident fox this year who is posing for photo! And thank you for the feedback on our published hours, a mistake we will rectify in the future. Hope to see you again this summer!

Customer service was severely lacking and condos need major updating for the prices being charged. Even making the reservation was difficult and a few simple questions about the condos took several hours to be answered. Receptionist tried to charge my credit card before even giving me a total and was very pushy trying to get me to stay an additional...

We are very sorry that your experience was not up to your standard and are heartbroken that we did not meet your expectations. Our condos are individually owned, each owner decorates to their own taste. We do offer a 3 for 2 special (book 3 nights & only pay for 2) this time of year and perhaps there was a...

Great time this past weekend, my middle daughter was married at your beautiful chapel. It was a great venue and out condo was excellent. I recommend others to check out GTB for their wedding. Thanks again for your hospitality.

We absolutely love the Grand Rivers area and staying at Green Turtle Bay. We are frequent visitors and have never had a bad experience! The rentals are clean, accommodating and have a beautiful view of KY Lake. Even if your rental doesn't face the water, its a short walk to enjoy the view. There are restaurants in the GTB area...

By your review it sounds as if you have discovered all that we love about our Water-Way-of-Life! Did you get to enjoy a live show at the Badgett Theater in town? Did you try a golf cart to get around for the weekend? Thank you so very much for the great review and for choosing us to spend your vacation....

We stayed at the Green Turtle Bay Resort. We stayed in a 1 bedroom condo with a view of the lake. We rented a golf court and did some sightseeing. We ate at Patti's and it was delicious! It was very relaxing and plan to return again some day.

The Condo rental gets five stars. The boat rental is a racket. Budget $65-$100 added to your daily rental to pay for a prop when you check your boat back in. The props they use are what I'd call break-away aluminum props that evidently break if striking water. We rented a pontoon 4 days and had to pay for a...

Thank you for your great review of our condos! We are happy to have our brand new rental boat fleet this year. We take great care to educate the operator of the boats before the boats leave the dock and when they return. I understand that you did have to purchase two new replacement props during your four day rental....

We initially went here looking for a boat at their sales division at the marina but after that we wondered around and there are great places to stay, fun downtown area with many shops and places to eat, as well as a great marina. You can get here by land or water and it looks to be a nice relaxing...
