Turtle Beach is a fine place to relax, but it is definitely dated, and in need of major repairs, refurbishment, or just plan reconstruction. The beach itself has an amazing sunset view and leather back turtles really do nest there. But the facilities are straight out of the 1960's. I was waiting for David Niven (i.e. 007) to show up at any moment.
Should guests really be expected to steal bananas from the buffet at breakfast in order to have their favourite cocktail after lunch? Guests were saving their bananas from breakfast to bring to the bartender in the afternoon. The bar was frequently out of basic items from their simple drink menu.
The rooms are dark, and lighting poor. The smaller room with a twin bed was smaller than your average prison cell and very dark at night. It is very difficult to find a plug to charge electronics. Housekeeping was extraordinarily slow. The room would not be made up until nearly tea time. Once our room was left without towels and a call to the front desk went unanswered.
The bathroom had a very mouldy window sill giving the entire room a musty smell. The tub surround was smeared with caulking, and many of the fixtures were loose and calcium stained. The bath towels, when we had them, were tissue thin.
The location of Turtle Beach has great potential, and it probably always will because no one wants to invest in this facility. For now, it is best to manage your expectations.
