Wonderful relaxing holiday

Posted 07-Sep-2014
Pros: The staff.
Not an opulent hotel, but what I would describe as a good 4 star. Three good restaurants; excellent all-inclusive facilities that included a gym, tennis courts, body-boarding (some great waves on the private beach), sailing, surfing (you need to pay for a private lesson first $50); small but beautiful private beach. We had 2 adults and 3 children with a private room and plenty of space in the rest of hotel room for 3 beds (the third bed was a put-me-up so was a little small). Food was perfectly fine. In all it was the staff who made the holiday though: friendly but not overbearing and very efficient service.

Great beach vacation

Posted 30-Jul-2014
Pros: The staff are very friendly and like their work. The food was top notch for an all inclusive. The predominantly British clientele fits well.
Cons: The hide-abed was as hide-abed's usually are, not very comfortable to sleep on. Our trick is to rotate who gets to sleep closest to the TV (hide-abed)
Location: There are nice neighbourhood walks provided by the hotel. Randal was a great guide!
The water is warm and lively. I love beaches where the waves brake. They are not too strong or too weak. Just perfect for all ages. The hotel has a very good beach sports team providing and overseeing the use of all manner of equipment. The beach is naturally clean; no morning raking is required as on many other beaches. There is a good breeze (great for the catamaran, windsurfing, kite boarding and just keeping cool. Thankfully the sand, although fine, doesn't get picked blown (i.e. in to your eyes) Most beach beds have sun covers and the staff are very helpful in setting up a spot for you. The gym is well equipped with ten or so cam type machines, a safe bench press frame, three treadmills, a rowing machine ellipticals, many spinning bikes, dumbbells, floor exercise area, and a punching bag. Its just a short walk to St. Dominic's RC church for Sunday Mass which is part of the experience with all of its Bajan flavour.

Nice hotel A bit dated but good facilities

Posted 27-Jun-2014
If you are looking to enjoy the beach pick somewhere in the west coast as the south is open to the strong easterly Atlantic winds that spoil it. The beach was red flagged for 4/7 days! West coast feels like a different planet!! Amazing!!

On the beach and bliss

Posted 09-Jun-2014
Pros: Staff professional, warm and friendly. Location, food quality, buses to town 10 min walk away. rooms large and clean, waves as background.
Cons: The decor in general areas. Needs to be crisp and sharp finish. Birds in dining areas - open air needs to be retained.
Location: Horse racing at Garrison Savannah, 25 min walk to St Lawrence Gap - public beach where turtles swim too. Oistins evening street stalls.
Second attempt at an all in incusive holiday - our first we found boring. Beach bar/restaurant undergoing refurbishment during our first week but this went unnoticed as it was well organised. No noise or dust due to surrounding screens. Alternative beach bar was brilliant. Hotel location next to beach was superb. Food - lots of choices from buffet at breakfast and lunch with a la carte for evenings. changing locations for meals prevented "boredom" setting in. Entertainment was good and some nights outstanding. i.e. the dancers and the Michael Jackson impersonator. Only area that could have been improved was the painting and decorating around the general areas. Lack of attention to detail - drips of paint, no clean lines. We have been used to timeshare with high decor standards. Windy coast, sea too rough to swim, loungers had canopies - perfect shade and breeze.

Fun hotel near St. Lawrence Gap

Posted 02-Jun-2014
My husband and I just got home from Barbados. Turtle beach was great!! The staff was super nice and accommodating! It was our 1st year anniversary and also my husbands birthday so they upgraded our room to ocean front and had a bottle of champagne for us upon arrival. Also a sweet card. The rooms were great. Got very cold at night which was nice after being in the sun all day. I love sleeping in a nice air conditioned room on vacation. Food was decent for all inclusive.. Couldn't really ask for more. There was always something someone would like. I'm a very picky eater and it was fine for me. Drinks were strong but of course yummy! The staff was always saying hello and making sure you were having a good time. The staff would get familiar with what you had been drinking and would keep making sure you had a cocktail. The only negative I would say about the hotel is that the hotel is located on the Atlantic side so the beach is rough. We went to Crystal Cove for a day (sister hotel) and we LOVED the beach there. It's on the carribean side so the water was so calm. Really no small children but if we were there for any longer then a couple days we would of been bored. We miss Turtle beach already and look forward to visiting with them again!

Fabulous time.

Posted 19-May-2014
Pros: The beach and beach staff. Asiagos Restaurant was tremendous. Large pool. Our ocean front room. Maid services was excellent.
Cons: Bar service by staff was poor. It was faster to get it ourselves. This was true for the Waterfront restaurant and the main one. Not Assiagos.
Location: Harrison Caves. Bridgetown. Wildlife Preserve. Oistens
Our room was overlooking the ocean - totally awesome. The beach and beach staff were excellent. Loved the Cat. rides. We met lots of people that we spent our time with. We did one tour and it was great. Disappointed that we paid a lot more than some. That's alright though we still had a blast and it was worth it.

Very nice resort

Posted 12-May-2014
Pros: The staff. They were super friendly.
Location: It's very close to St. Lawrence Gap which has some great restaurants and some shopping. The beach is just a few steps away and plenty of water sports.
We had a great time. The staff catered to our every whim. The beach is beautiful and everyone there treated us like family. I will be back and recommend this resort for anyone that wants to have a great vacation.

Exceptional vacation

Posted 18-Mar-2014
The stay at Turtle Beach allowed for complete relaxation given the staff, cuisine, hotel staff and service, and safety of the property. The beach is absolutely beautiful as well.
