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.

Nice beach reasonable hotel
Nice beachfront location and our room was in an excellent position.Overall I would say it was equivalent to a good 3 star in Europe, there was not a huge variety at meal times for guests with special dietary requirements. Most of the staff were very helpful however the bar staff were more interested in closing early rather than customer service,. Did I enjoy my stay - yes, would I go back - noMore

Lovely stay at Turtle Beach
We had a lovely stay at Turtle Beach, most staff are attentive and friendly. The room from our view was beautiful, so close to such an amazing Beach. The waves were not a problem as our two sons and ourselves loved them. The area to the left is more rough than the part closest to the Sandals hotel next door, no problem swimming in the water at all, though I suspect if you had a toddler it may be slightly too rough for them to have a paddle. No problem getting loungers on the beach. We didn't go in the pool once, why bother when you have that amazing Beach and sea to swim in! You did get the usual people up early reserving the sun beds around the pool. We had a choice of x3 restaurants, the buffet, waterfront and the Italian. We preferred the waterfront and Italian which you had to book, but at least the whole family ate together rather than everybody walking around the buffet and then not really sitting together when eating. The new coffee shop and ice cream parlour is a lovely touch. The room could have done with a refurb however the room was cleaned well each day. Most water sports are free and you have literally on the doorstep of St Lawrence Gap so worth getting out of the all inclusive and having a look around. Enjoyed our stay.More
awful hotel !!! food vile 2 star at very best!!!! dont book!!!
I was so looking forward to our holiday in barbados however upon arrival it was very clear the hotel was most definitely not of 4 star standard! Where or where to begin..... the rooms were of very poor standard very basic furniture that was old and tatty, beds uncomfortable. After unpacking we decided we would have a look round and have a meal. the main Buffet words cant even describe ..... the selection was very small the quality of the food was probably the worst I have ever had. FLIES everywhere, even where they had covers they were so bad the flies are under the covers! The other two restaurants waterfront and what was meant to be Italian ( that is raley open ) are not much better but a slight notch above. again lunch horrific. We choose to eat out most of the time which meant we spent so much money! Some of the staff are very pleasant however others seemed like they didn't want to be there at all and almost everything and effort. The pools are dirty and like anywhere you need to be quick with sunbeds but that is standard. Beach is amazing and simply beautiful, beach sunbeds are very old tatty the beach staff and watersports staff fab no there stuff and feel so safe in their knowledge of the sea. To be fair to the hotel we were offered to move but only being here for a week we decided to be pointless. I am very surprised at the reviews that people return year upon year! we meet numerous families /couples who all shared our views. One included someone getting married who was in tears as it wasn't the dream she had been sold or imagined. this hotel needs a massive refurb along with some lessons in food hygiene DONT BOOKMore
Another fantastic stay at turtle beach 5*
We stayed here for our third year and it never lets us down it truly is beautiful. The hotel is always clean and has everything you would need. You feel instantly relaxed. The beach is stunning and the grounds of the hotel it's magical. The staff are lovely Lanelle is amazing so friendly and happy a real asset to the hotel, Argyle the manager is great, Sabrina is great fun. It's nice to see the same faces and makes it feel like home and they are so friendly and helpful. I couldn't list everyone but the list of staff at the end of the review are all amazing and have been there each year and never change they remember you and if you need anything at all they are always happy to help. The kids club is good and the water sports my daughter loves it here. It is a very safe hotel and I would recommend for family's. The rooms are beautiful we have had the beach front ground floor by the pool and the rooms never lets us down. The food is very nice and the cocktails are good too. Captain Sam and team are still fantastic making sure children have the best time and the adults. Please know if you book this hotel you won't be disappointed it is paradise. We will be back again next year. We missed Maradona this year I have to mention him as he is fantastic, he was on his holiday but hopefully we can see him next year he is bar/pool he is a real character. So my list to thank below in my review that made the holiday a really good one. Lanelle Sonia Michelle Taymar restaurant Daniel bar Nicholas bar/pool Janice bracelet stall on beach Ann and Annette and marva the cleaners Leon pool staff Daiquiri restaurant staff such fun Argyll manager fantastic very professional Lamark bar/pool Sabrina bar/pool Richard bar Antonia omelette Jamaine Ashley cook Damien security Roland security Joy restaurant Ross restaurant Adrian bar Elizabeth bar Captain Sam Dario and his team.

What an amazing resort! We have been lucky enough to stay in many resorts in the Caribbean, this is the best resort. When you stay here you are staying in pure luxury from the way you are treated to the facility's. I have three fussy children when it comes to eating and yet we found something which they enjoyed, out of the three restaurants, every mealtime. Only one of my girls struggled on Mexican night and I mentioned it to a member of staff and they immediately offered for the chef to cook an alternative. The staff are all so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Unfortunately, one evening, my youngest daughter was ill, self inflicted, too much ice cream! I took my other two daughters to the restaurant for our booking and explained that we only required a table for three, not five, due to my daughter feeling ill. They immediately started preparations to send my husbands meal to the room, so that he did not miss out on his meal. They even sent a drink and dessert too! The rooms were spacious and very clean with comfortable beds and the best air conditioning in the Caribbean! The deli, ice cream parlour, hot dog and pizza station which were all available from 11:00 to 6:00 meant that no body was ever hungry and the pool and beach side service meant that you were never thirsty either. What an amazing resort, the best which we have stayed in! Thank you to all at the Turtle Beach Barbados. I hope that we can come back and visit soon. More
