Just got home from a fantastic time at Turtle Beach hotel. This was our second visit and there will be a third visit. Staff all amazing, room, large and clean the bed huge and comfortable , yes the bathrooms need updating but was spotless. There was people moaning about things, but those people will always moan.
A relaxing holiday

I agree with some reviews that the hotel is tired but that didn't spoil our stay at all. I expected this before arrival from reading reviews, I wasn't put off at all. We had spacious, interconnecting rooms with a lovely pool and sea view. Rooms were large and clean and the bed was huge and SO comfortable!
The beach was lovely, sea was quite rough but still lovely and warm.
The food was lovely that I ate. I'm fussy so am limited with food but I found something everyday at all times of day and what I ate was really nice. Drinks were plentiful, there was a coffee and cake shop and an ice cream shop that did a lovely banana milkshake ?? Snacks were on through the day and you could grab crisps and bottled water whenever you pleased throughout.
The hotel is very relaxed, I personally found most staff were lovely and polite. I found the people of Barbados to be very friendly. The hotel was also well located at one end of the gap.
You can also use sister hotels. We used facilities at Crystal cove for a day which was lovely, though smaller than Turtle Beach.
We would stay again.
A Really Good Holiday

The hotel is is need of a bit of TLC. It looks tired in places.
The hotel amenities are good. All inclusive means what it says, there are no hidden extras. It is made clear in advance that a room levy and tourist tax are payable when checking out.
Food quality is good with plenty of choice. Water activities are included but subject to sea conditions, of course.
We had a Junior Suite with Ocean View. A very comfortable room, plenty of space and well equipped with safe, fridge and hair dryer.
I docked a point on the score because there were insufficient beach towels. This was despite the fact the hotel was less than half full.
On one day there was no water. This meant toilet cisterns did not refill, showers didn't work etc. I don't believe this was the fault of the hotel but it was inconvenient.
Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. Drinks are brought to your sun lounger if you really can't go to the bar yourself.
The evening entertainment was good quality and enjoyable.
A relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

We have returned from a week in Barbados staying at the Turtle Beach travelling as two famillies with two teenage boys and thus booking three rooms to accommodate our needs. All the rooms had impressive sea views and were kept spotlessly clean throughout our stay and the hotel did much to ensure the safety of guests was paramount with the current rules on Covid in Barbados being adhered to. The hotel has a relaxed, boutique feel with lovely gardens, two pool areas and beach access. Unfortunately the sea was quite choppy during our time there and hence was red flagged for a number of days: the lifeguards risk assessed this on a daily basis. In order to overcome issue this we booked transport to take us to a sister hotel where our boys were able to access watersports : kayaks, doughnuts, wake boarding etc at no cost and our all inclusive status was honoured. The hotel does offer a shuttle bus for a fee to Oistins fish fry on the Friday night which we were able to take advantage of. We tried all three restaurants at the hotel and found the food to be consistently good, all the staff were friendly and helpful and we appreciated the open bar in the centre of the hotel. The hotel is an easy stroll from Lawrence Gap with it's shops and bars. We used the hotels events guide to book our day trips: easily the best day out was boat trip with snorkeling and swimming with turtles.
