Dont waste your time

Posted 27-Sep-2016
Me and my boyfriend stayed from the 20-26th of September and my inlaws stayed from the 20-22nd long story short we were not impressed. We got there a little before check in and were not allowed to have lunch since check in started at 3. Ive never seen a all inclusive hotel deny its customers food since they start check in at 3. Your usually allowed to leave your bags at the front and walk around the hotel and have something to eat while you wait.. but not at Turtle Beach. We were then told well you can purchase lunch at $250 TT per person ($41 USD), that's ridiculous after spending way over a thousand dollars on the trip already. Food is only served 3x a day (bfast, lunch, dinner) so if your hungry in between you can have "tea and cookies" again RIDICULOUS. Usually in all inclusive they have a place opened almost 24hrs to allow people to have some food in between meals. Beware of the assistant dining room manager who thinks hes a big shot by being rude to his locals. A few members of the dining room staff including him like to pick and choose who can get over there dress policy.. racism isn't nice and they need to address that issue ASAP! Now to find some pros.. having the beach off your room is great! Cheryl the bartender was great. The pool was nice just a little shallow. All in all we would never come back to Turtle Beach Tobago which is a shame. We had our hopes up, his family in Trinidad and my family in NYC all wanted to make a trip but I will advise them otherwise

close to beach, food was palatable

Posted 04-Sep-2016
Cons: Early check in Meals on time. Meals were always 10 - 15 minutes later than stated.
Staff are considerate and friendly. Food was delicious. Loved that the beach was just out the room. Only downfall was the inability to have an early checkin.

Not good for someone who knows about quality hotel

Posted 04-Sep-2016
The stay was very uncomfortable, for those who like quality vacation, this is a no no.Electricity went for one part of the day and night, there were no standby generator.Food was very salty one of the night.Lunch and dinner very basic.Broken vanities, uncomfortable bed etc Not good for someone who likes quality vacation.

Customer Service not good!

Posted 29-Aug-2016
Pros: The beach, View and Pool
Cons: The Customer service needs attending too. The poolside bar needs two bartenders instead on one and they also need to know how to make the drinks.
My Fiance and I stayed there the weekend of 26th to 28th August 2016. Check in was horrible. We waited for 3hrs to get a room and when we finally did, there were no towels in the room. We also had to be continuously asking for Pool Towels. We were celebrating a birthday and was given a complimentary wine and fruit basket (which never made it to our room by the way) and collected only the wine on check out. I felt like my littler get away was very stressful. The television only have 12 channels so don't go there to watch T.V. On a brighter note, the view was gorgeous and the pool was great. The resort needs a little restoration and is a little dated. The bar needs more than one bartender and the stray cats need to be dealt with.

Pool bar was a plus

Posted 13-Aug-2016
Pros: having access to the bar from the pool and buffet style
Cons: more courteous staff better wifi service needs a paint over
Location: location is a plus because it close to a beach
the hotel could do with a paint over, the food was okay but the buffet style was a plus so i was always satisfied. Some of the staff members need to be more courteous and put a smile on their faces to make you feel more at home. The pool is large however it is very shallow, so its most likely for kids. I liked the fact that you can access the bar and still be in the pool, that was a plus. However room surface needs to be work faster or they need to hire more staff. it was past 1 and my room wasnt cleaned as yet. there were no mats in the room and the floor was very cold. had to use bath towels as mats. however the beach was very close and the waters were calm so that is a plus. another thing, wifi connection is really poor, cant get service in the room. i will recommend it but not for a honeymoon

R & R July 2016

Posted 15-Jul-2016
Very nice place on the beach no need to go swimming elsewhere. I would definitely return. However, the success of any place depends on the staff. Most of the staff were cordial while others were straight up "hogish" Trinidad terminology. Especially one of the cooks on the breakfast grill. No sweat I know how to ingnore. People go on vacations for many reasons. If you ask the guests what's the occasion or what they are celebrating the hotel should at least help them celebrate. Nada. Other resorts do it it shows appreciation. At breakfast no one monitored to refill. Bread took too long to be refilled. The staff just is not giving 100% and it's the way they earn a living. Failure. I went for a quiet stay and I got that. But they need to do more to keep things going. I expected dancing to soca and calypso. One of the bar tenders -- not Big J were playing inappropriate music with families who had kids with them. Karaoke was good. But guests had to retire after that or get drunk. Step up people. Liven things up a bit.

Wonderful Beach Front Hotel

Posted 06-Jul-2016 on Orbitz
By no means a five star hotel but we had a five star vacation there. Leatherback turtles nesting outside our balcony really made our time there exciting. If you are looking for a peaceful relaxing place in off season this is the place, however if you are looking for activities and nightlife choose another place. Kids may be bored with only swimming but we LOVED the quiet. Buffet meals delicious! Staff was awesome and made a friend with one of the staff who we will keep in contact for the next year until we come back!

Room With a View

Posted 27-Jun-2016
Pros: Location
Location: Nylon Pool is a short taxi ride and boat ride from hotel. We didn't rent a car but tours guides could be booked through the front desk.
Had a wonderful three days here. Location was super and the staff certainly made us feel at home. Esther, at reception, was amazing. She was on duty when we checked in at midnight and was still there the following afternoon. We called her "Wonder-Woman". She was never "rattled" when on the phone, with customers waiting at the desk. Just took her time and took care of everyone. We didn't see the turtles but that was our fault. We should have requested a call at any time of the night. Food was excellent and we certainly didn't go hungry. Met quite a few people who were "returns" at this resort and hope we will be a "return" in the not-too-distant-future.
