Island Paradise

Posted 24-Jul-2014
Pros: How quiet it was around there. The cleanliness of the grounds and pool. And the beach was nice The staff was very pleasant and greeted you by name
Cons: Dinner started earlier. Breakfast end later. A Spa would be great. More variety in the shop. The free Wi-Fi was hard to keep connected in the room
Location: Non-motorized watersports were included in the price. You could go snorkeling or take a Glass Bottom Boat ride approximately 15 minutes away.
It was a very relaxing week. Everyone was very friendly. Food was good with a good variety every day. Dain Henry, Server, was exceptional and very knowledgeable of the Island. The Man at the Excursion desk, booking the excursions would not help with any excursions except the ones he was booking. The pool and grounds were always clean. There was not a variety of drinks to choose from at the bar. I would definitely go back to this Resort. It is not a big tourist island, but a safe island.

Terrible Honeymoon, Turtle Seafacing Room

Posted 15-Jun-2014
Pros: The food, very good chef
The front desk staff is very unhelpful, our refrigerator was not stocked for our entire stay as we paid for, even after telling the front desk twice, the coffee maker in the room was not clean, still had coffee from the previous guests use. The room was always damp, the room walls were ALWAYS wet, even thought we took the AC off when not in the room. The premium movie channels consisted of HBO family and TNT which was in English on our arrival then within an hour it was in Spanish, complained to the front desk twice with was of no help. The restaurant staff were almost pleasant, we received an apology from our server when we saw a white substance flowing around our coke, however the bartender was not as apologetic. Would not stay here again

Great location, but the rooms were average

Posted 06-Jun-2014
This place was all about the location really. The rooms were pretty average and considering we paid the same amount as some of the best 5 star hotels in the world I've been to on business, it was a little disappointing in this respect. Mosquitoes could get into the room easily so we got bitten quite a bit (even though we had repellent). The beach was great, however, and the pool was nice. Food was good and it was nice to have all-inclusive, so you could get drinks from the bar whenever you wanted. Overall worth the visit, but don't expect the rooms to be like the Hyatt in Port of Spain!

Could have been better

Posted 18-Dec-2013
My family and I booked 7 rooms at this resort for 3 nights. We requested king-sized, ground floor rooms close to each other before arrival. Upon arrival, we had to wait until 4pm to have 5 of our rooms ready and another hour for the other 2 rooms. When we finally got to our rooms we realized we were placed in the furthest corner of the resort, on the third floor!! Btw, there was no elevator so the 70-year olds in our group had to make the trek across the resort and up the stairs. Another treat: our beds were not all king sized. We only got 2 rooms with king sized beds. The other rooms ranged from 2 to even 3 single beds! When we informed the front desk they told us we might be able to get 2 of the rooms changed the following day- This never happened. We were just so fed up with the poor service we decided to just settle for the rooms we got. Dinner was ok that night, long wait and queue aside. The next morning however was an awful breakfast experience. We waited in queue for more than an hour to be seated and by that time there were very little options in the buffet and nothing was being replenished, not even clean plates! When we thought it couldn't get worse, we didnt have water in our rooms for a couple hours that afternoon. And no television reception either. Things started to get better by the third day. The meals were very tasty and the pool and bar was awesome. We made the best of our short vacation and would definitely stay here again if standards improve!

Quiet and Relaxing

Posted 06-Dec-2013 on Hotels.com
This was our third trip to Turtle Beach Resort and like the first two trips, it was very quiet and relaxing. Perfect for couples and families who just want to get away from the hustle and bustle. There are no shops or stores within walking distance so be prepared to rent a car or hire a taxi if you want to do some sightseeing or souvenir shopping. The hotel and rooms itself are not very modern, but always very clean. Not much activities to do here, basically just hanging around by the pool and bar.

Even better the second time

Posted 02-Sep-2013
Pros: The pool area
Cons: Kids meals; water sports
This was my second time at the Rex in Tobago and it was better than I remember. You cannot go with high expectations. My husband, son and myslef stayed in a ground floor room with two queen sized beds on the all-inclusive package. The room was resonably clean and large and the beds comfortable. The bathroom could have been a cleaned a bit more thoroughly but it wasn't a major concern. The food was good and satisfying, though there was not enough options for the kids. There were many options of alcoholic and non- alcoholic drinks that were quite satisfying. The pool was nice and relaxing and yes a bit mouldy on the edges, but I wouldn't complain about something so trivial. The staff was super friendly and continuosly ensured we were having a good time. There was a strong security presence everywhere so we felt safe.

Decent hotel , very close to the beach.

Posted 21-Jul-2013
Cons: Wifi in rooms was not working despite getting a good signal. Perhaps another swimming pool .
The hotel was functional. Rooms were cleaned often enough. TV only had a few stations. But , room was very close to the beach. Open the back sliding door in room and you're on the beach. Beach was very private and quiet and seemed to be well kept- no garbage or dogs, and no seaweed and not rocky. There was ample space for everyone, and enough beach chairs and other equipment. No rush to get anything. Food was decent. Breakfast was good. Staff very helpful and polite.

Great Hotel on the beach

Posted 14-Jul-2013
Pros: The Staff
Cons: Night entertainment
Location: All inclusive was great
The experience once again was excellent, thanks to Esther at reception for check in and another Esther for check out, which was prompt and efficient. Jason at the pool bar, a special "big up" great cocktails and friendly personality. Thanks to the Manager for a special reception for repeaters and special thanks to "Scotty" and the staff at the restaurant for tasty and enjoyable meals. Another GREAT experience. Will return in August and December
