Turtle Beach Resort
The Turtle Beach Resort gives you a beachfront location, loads of dining options, and lots in the way of activities.
This place is pulled right up beside a thick ribbon of sugar-white sand. A 10-minute stroll along the shorefront will bring you to the candy-coloured rum shacks and cafés of the famous St Lawrence Gap.
Watersports like windsurfing, sailing and snorkelling populate the to-do list. Elsewhere, there are a couple of pools to dip in to, plus a trio of restaurants, and bars that host live singers.

When can we come back?!
We visited Barbados, Turtle Beach, for our tenth wedding anniversary with our 8 year old. It was our first visit to Barbados and we didn’t book until November for our December-January holiday, so places were limited. Where can I start...? The staff were all fabulous, Sophia, Captain Sam to name just a couple... the ladies in the kid’s club, the bar staff, restaurant staff and the cleaners. (Sorry I can’t name you all - too much rum punch!) I saw a description of Barbados as being 21 miles long and 1 smile wide - that is so very true! The hotel rooms are a little dated and worn but that didn’t affect anything. How long do you spend in them? The food was plentiful, varied and tasty! As mentioned earlier we celebrated our tenth anniversary and on returning to our room on the day, there was fizz and a card from the management. A lovely touch. There is a buffet for lunch and evening meals or you can book a la carte. The one night we did the meal was exceptional. There is also a coffee shop and ice cream parlour if you fancy a change from the buffet lunches. Once our son tried the kid’s club we never saw him! It’s on 9 until 9 every day! Along with the other Elegant Hotels, Marriott has taken them over and lots of changes appear to be in the pipeline. Our family and the rest of the people we met there would say one thing to Marriott - ‘please don’t take the heart from this hotel!’ Our best holiday ever and our little boy sobbed on the plane as we left! Thank you Turtle Beach and your wonderful staff!More

Overall the resort was very nice. Clean and well kept with a friendly staff. The room was a nice size with a balcony but could use updateing, especially the bathroom. It was clean and semi-modern but the water pressure in the shower was poor at best. The food was good and the drinks were plentiful. The staff was very friendly, courteous and helpful, although at times slow. Maybe thats just the island life. I would like to see some improvements to the room/bathroom and the beach lounge chairs. Other than that very nice. Kudos to the management and staff for the New Year's Eve Celebration. That was outstanding!!! More

Relaxing and Friendly hotel
This is our second stay at Turtle Beach which is a relaxing and friendly hotel with a beautiful beach and delicious food. We stayed over xmas and New year and the hotel worked so hard to create a amazing atmosphere, loved the decorations for New Year Eve. The coffee shop, ice cram parlour were a definite hit! The rooms are a little dated but its not a problem. The only thing the hotel could improve for me is to add food allergens on the the labels of the food, as I have a 15 year old who has several food allergies, and hates the fuss of me asking "whats in this?" I will definitely be booking a third time, looking at prices now!! More
Best Family Option!
We could not have picked a better hotel for our group, which ranged from age 3-70. The pools are located near the adult activities so supervision is possible without being left out, the Kids Club was GREAT. Dining was easy for little kids and for picky-eaters. We especially appreciated Gluten-Free options, which were clearly marked. Exceptional options for additional activities, mixology contests, tie-dye, bands/dancing, astronomy, etc. Really, really impressed. Staff was so accommodating.More
Bad service, poor and dirty
Our group of 3 families is very disappointed. Instead of a pleasant stay we met a lot of difficulties. The hotel is not more then 2 stars. The attitude of the staff is not kind and helpful. Our feeling was we were not welcome in this resort. There were a lot of problems that spoiled our vacation: 1. Almost all the time the WiFi had no signal or it was very bad, even at the reception. 2. The door cards don't work properly. 3. The water in the bathroom was too cold or too hot, because the sink faucets were damaged. No movable shower. Clogged tub for 3 days. 4. The staff doesn't supply with shower gel daily. 5. In this 4 stars All Inclusive hotel the daily cleaning is not included. The guests have to ask few times in order to have it. There is a charge of 20 dollars per day. 6. Noisy service amenities near the suites disturb the tourists constantly. 7. The elevator is smelling and it is dirty. 8. Everything in this hotel is old and worn out. 9. There are a lot of dirty areas in the rooms and outside, some of them even dangerous for the guests and especially for the children. 10. There is no good variety of food, no sea food, no fish. 11. Difficult to book any service like reservation for a restaurant. 12. On 2nd of January there was a wedding on the beach. We were asked to move far from the water. Normally the staff had to inform in advance. However, the location and the beach are great.More
