I stayed at this resort in May 2016. It was during school holidays. I saw a lot of families with young children. Apparently they have the best kids club around. The hotel although has seen better days has a cozy family feel. The staff are very helpful and honest. I forgot my phone charger in my room and it was... More

My 12-year-old son and I stayed at Turtle Bay last October and it was a perfect two weeks. We had a room on the third floor with a partial view of the ocean. Some of the things we loved: the staff, all so gracious and attentive, always smiling; the convenience of the all-inclusive meals, the variety and selection; the pool,... More

Having gotten amazing reviews from family, my first visit sadly had my group booked in with one of the largest conference groups I have ever met at Turtle Bay. This reflected in the quality of service to a large degree as the poor staff were kept running up and down at mealtimes but we were very well attended to with... More

Amazing fun with loads of activities for couples and kids okay food and had a repeaters (second time there) lunch organized which was great. Schedule of activities was well organized which ensures that even with the lack of wifi or a TV in the trim there is enough to do to ensure you don't get bored.

Our group of 7 (4 A & 3C) stayed for 4 nights. The ocean front rooms were fabulous. Great tide changes and exploring the low-tide pools lots of fun. Many people selling things on the beach, was sometimes too much if you were just looking for a quiet walk. Food was excellent. Service was ok. Drinks just ok. There were... More
