Turtle Beach Resort
This hotel has all the hallmarks of a Caribbean retreat – a peaceful beachfront spot, private palm gardens and luxury rooms. Yet it’s just minutes from lively St Lawrence Gap.
This peaceful place is parked right on a beach. Palm gardens shelter a pair of pools, while the white sands showcase an in-house watersports centre and a sea-view restaurant.
Location isn’t the only thing that scores gold here – it’s got a rosta of off-the-wall activities like mixology lessons and boogie-boarding.

Tired complex and in need of serious investment.
We stayed here for 2 weeks in July for a family holiday. It was recommended by virgin as probably the best family resort in Barbados. It went wrong from here. The general facilities are poor. The rooms are beyond old with years of ground in dirt in all areas. Our toilet wouldn’t work and the bathroom shower and taps were literally hanging off the wall. We did complain and the Manager moved us to a newly refurbished room which was very pleasant. There is a distinct divide in service. There were some staff who really wanted to help. However the majority were rude, hostile, sniggered and talked behind our backs and clearly didn’t want us there. Having reported one waitress for her shockingly hostile attitude, the following morning ALL staff were like this. I still cannot believe we paid £8k to be treated like a third date citizen. The food was adequate but ran out most days unless you god there as soon as the restaurant opened. The whole hotel needs a lot of money to bring it into the 21st century. Walls are peeling, the gym is very substandard, sun loungers are broken, the WiFi is non existent, the air conditioning broke 3 times in our room, and the staff treat you like you are a complete inconvenience to them. We did have some good times. The beach is lovely and Winston and Sam’s team are super. The restaurant staff and coffee shop staff should simply be fired. There is clearly a systemic problem within the hotel when it comes to service. This will mean we will never return to Barbados sadly due to our very upsetting experience at this hotel.More
When I think about this hotel all I can say is "Eh." I came for a girls trip. The hotel itself is a bit aged and could use some renovations. The best food on the daily buffet that you could always count on were the French fries. The drinks were good. The best bartender was Winston but he wasn't keen on service. There were no activities at the resort. So to recap: the rooms were not great, the food was not that great but the drinks were good. The only saving grace was the staff. Dian made my day. She was wonderful and willing to help and she made my drinks like I like them. Sue Anne was also a delight. I had seen her a couple of times in one day and she had worked an extremely long shift and never once did her smile leave her face. Tara at the front desk was also very friendly. Would I stay again? No. However, if you decide to go you will have great service in mediocre to subpar surroundings.More
We had a girls trip for 5 days! This resort at best is a 2/5. Our first day when getting in bed that night 2/3 of us in my room had sand in the bed. Being that it was after 10 they were not able to come change my sheets. The WiFi that is suppose to be throughout only worked outside of the rooms and even then sometimes it did not work. The drinks were great . The activity center was not helpful at all. Reservations were always booked, and the lady trying to help with excursions had no idea about stuff. We also wanted to book photos for our group but there were no photographers by the hotel. I have never experienced a hotel without an onsite photographer. She then calls someone and he says he won’t be on island until August 🤔 ! The food was just ok. I’ve had much better. The service was excellent other than a few people but that’s anywhere. The hotel was very boring did not have any day activities. No music playin, no water volleyball, no shows absolutely nothing. At night they had a band which was cool. The beach was beautiful and the guys over water sports were great. Waves were too much to swim in but fun to enjoy. I wouldn’t stay here again.More
Horrible place, avoid at all costs
Staff are animals ,selling drugs to kids, avoid. Will treat you like you are pigs. Food is muck birds poo all over the dining area, they will not serve you unless you give them tips. All inclusive where you can not get drinking water. Manager michael will abuse you if asked for something you will end up in jailMore
From the moment you arrive you are greeted with warmth and friendliness. We was upgraded to a sea view room, the rooms are clean and big enough for 3 adults to be sharing. The staff are so accommodating nothing is to much. The food is lovely, if you are hungry through out the day the coffee shop and ice cream parlour are def., worth a visit. A big thank you to the hotel nothing is to much. Even got to see turtles on the beach in the evening time, beach is small but perfect you can always find a lounger. We will def., be back More
