Overview
The Turtle Beach Resort delivers a touch of class. The beach is nothing short of spectacular, and there is an ocean view from every luxurious suite. The hotel is named for the sea turtles that nest on the beach, which is visible from the four-storey open-air lobby. Everything you could wish for is here to enjoy - even preferential access and start times at the nearby golf course. No rambunctious activity teams here! Perfect for that special vacation - a honeymoon...or maybe a second honeymoon?
 
Location: 15 minutes from Grantley Adams International Airport, 20 minutes to Bridgetown, and 5 minutes to Oistins.

Good but room for inprovemetn

Recent 10 night stay.Food: there was usually 1 option running for breakfast and lunch and then an option of waterfront a la carte or main buffet for dinner. Breakfast and dinner were good (different buffet themes for dinner) but lunch was disappointing and only 1 option. I think both buffet and waterfront should be available. Pizza and fries served daily but 8/10times this was overlooked/too crispy. Would be good to perfect the pizzas and keep 1 restaurant running for burgers fries pizza and then buffet also as an option. It’s expected in an all inclusive. Ice cream parlour was delicious. The chefs particularly Lisette, were super helpful at organising my 1 year olds meals and she enjoyed the food. The days she wasn’t there I had to speak to a miserable unhelpful lady which spoiled my morning. We were allowed to order from the adults only Italian restaurant and eat in the main restaurant which was very kind.Staff: reception staff always smiling and helpful. The restaurant managers we found most helpful during our stay- all of them were EXCELLENT!! Nothing was an effort. Other restaurant staff - many were exceptionally friendly but some were miserable and seemed to have some attitude issues- no smiles at all like they couldn’t be bothered. We tried to avoid those individuals but it’s a shame they had to be present at ALL in an otherwise lovely resort.Sonia from kids club - what a legend. Our little girl liked her a lot. The kids club allowed her to do some drawing, play with toys,watch movies. They also have an outdoor swing/slide area. As well as pool table fuse ball and table tennis, computer games for older kids (husband).Rooms: the oceanview room was nice and spacious. Only issues are that things break easily here! Toilets block easily, the wardrobe doors of both rooms we stayed in were hanging off, safe battery died, AC unit started leaking water in the middle of the night. Bathroom taps bit leaky. Crib provided for baby was super creaky and woke her up every time she turned over! overAll just needs updating!!Lots of mosquitos -but you can call to ask for your room to be sprayed whilst your at dinner and for a plug in repellant.Beach: it’s beautiful water is slightly rough but the sand is lovely and they try to keep the debris from the trees swept off the beach. Unfortunately the cats have infected the beach and our 1 year used to play on the sand and came home with a hookworm infection on her feet which needs treatment. So warning to not allow children to be barefoot on the beach or sand. I think they should put a sign up to this effect. Sunbeds have good cushioning which I liked.Overall great resort but needs sprucing up and an update. not much can be done about the beach but take caution with kids playing there. Try to train or fire your miserable staff please. No one wants that on holiday.

Winter Sun

From arrival to departure we had a lovely, relaxing and enjoyable holiday, all of the staff from the Reception to the beach were helpful and attentive, without being over bearing, this is a well situated Hotel which is best suited to families, food is wholesome and tasty without the huge piles found in other parts of the Caribbean, The only thing I can say that is slightly negative is that the Hotel seems a little dated and tired, but on the positive well maintained, Adrian the Manager is a nice guy who is around a lot and happy to help.we will recommend this Hotel to friends and hopefully return in the future.

Girls Trip Part 2

This review is a follow- up from my previous review Girls Trip Part 1. From arrival to departure the team at Turtle Beach Resort was amazing. We were welcomed at the airport with a nice comfortable coach that was able to accommodate our party of 17 and all of our luggage. Upon arrival at the hotel we were personally greeted by staff and provided with welcome drinks, cool towels, and snacks. The rooms were fantastic. To my surprise each room had been upgraded to an ocean view. Each room also included sweet treats, a personalize itinerary and selfie sticks. Our table for 17 was set and reserved for us every night for dinner as requested. I requested a special set up for the last night and it was beautiful! The food was excellent and the service was great! The Turtle Beach crew also helped with orchestrating our excursions and activities. We had an Island Tour with sack lunches provided by the hotel. We had a beach day that included a special Mixology activity for our group where we learned to make select island favorite cocktails. The location of the hotel was very close to nightlife. We were able to walk to St.Lawrence Gap and visit local clubs. I can honestly say that this was our best Girls Trip ever! Thanks to Kadija, Tanya, the GM and other staff. You're service was top notch! If you are headed to Barbados I would highly recommended Turtle Beach Resort. Great food, excellent service, and tons of fun!

Perfection

Stayed here only for 5 nights as we originally were going on a carnival cruise but unfortunately due to the hurricane devastation got cancelled.The drive up to the hotel was lovely and it was all set up for Christmas.Great location to get to St Lawrence gap.Attentive porters. Welcoming front desk staff. Rico was lovely, friendly, attentive. Nothing was too much trouble. Welcome drinks.Due to our flight home being cancelled I had to make a local call at the cost of $1, but only had $20 so he paid it for me. It’s the fact that he did that without question or expecting anything in return for it that makes him my most memorable person. You should be proud to have someone so lovely working for you Turtle Beach. Rooms weren’t ready but still allowed to access all areas, food and drinks.Great location on the beach. Beach bar drinks service. Maradona and the other lady( I’m sorry I can’t remember your name but it begins with an S) I always called you sunglasses cos of how you wore them.Food options a plenty and great quality. Same applies to the drinks menu.On site ice cream parlour and coffee shop which serves great coffee and salads/paninis. All included.Hot dogs and pizza served throughout the day.Amazing breakfast choices. Omelette station. Continental. Fruit. Hot breakfast food, bagels. All served by smiling, pleasant staff, throughout the day. Not once did we not get spoke to by staff members or smiled at. The on site Italian is lovely. Makes you feel like you’ve left the complex. Lovely decor, ambience.Great staff and service.All work very hard at what they do and make it look easy and are pleasant doing it.The rooms were lovely. Clean, spacious, comfortable. Amazing bed and pillows.Tea and coffee kits. TV. Safe. Hairdryer. Good shower. A/C. Great view. Great housekeeping service.I don’t have anything bad to say about Turtle Beach and I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay.So much so I’ve recommended it to myself and am going back in October 2018 😂Thank you once again Turtle Beach. We will see you later in the year.I CANNOT wait xxxxxLinzi

Average hotel, above average prices

We stayed here for 2 weeks. Everything about the hotel was average, and in need of renovation. The food was ok, staff very attentive, room a decent size and no problems getting sunbeds. The hotel in general was very small, and not too far from the airport. Don’t bother going into Bridgetown, locals pester you excessively, and shops all a bit rubbish. Overall, Barbados did not live up to my expectations.
