I can't believe it has taken me this long to review my stay at Turtle Beach in July/ August 2012 We stayed here for the first part of our honeymoon and it was our first all-inclusive experience. Our room was very nice, although a bit far from the lobby/restaurants and beach area. The staff were very attentive and kind. We even received 2 bottles of champagne to celebrate the occasion! I wasn't too thrilled with Asaigo's, but if I wanted good Italian food I should have stayed home!
We were happily surprised when the beach staff went out of their way to move the loungers to our preferred section on the beach. We took advantage of the catamaran rides, beach cricket and boogie boards in the waves. Our favorite part of the day was our self-titled "happy hour" in the beautiful turquoise water. It seemed like we were always last to peel ourselves off the beach. Another highlight was seeing a turtle come ashore to lay eggs. Turtle Beach certainly lived up to its name!
I don't believe I would have enjoyed myself as much in peak season. It was quite nice that the hotel was maybe at half capacity as we never had to wait on a line and always had the beach loungers where we wanted.
We took a cab to The Gap one night and I would recommend this as well. Barbados is an awesome island to explore and it was fun to experience the nightlife there.
All in all, if you are considering going to Turtle Beach, go!!
