Apple Vacations Traveller Reviews
Won't Go Back
BRIANA B.
Dec 16 2013
This hotel was definitely not the star rating that was advertised. We upgraded with Apple Vacations to an ocean view room, and the hotel said this was not communicated to them, resulting in a big delay upon arrival, and changing rooms 3 times - The whole first day of our vacation was wasted. Almost every one of the staff at this hotel was completely rude and seemed unhappy and/or lazy. No one came to clean our room for 3 days, and when they finally did, had an attitude towards us. The cost for this vacation was overpriced, and although the hotel was all-inclusive, we ended up going elsewhere to eat most of the time since the food was less than par. The beach was pretty during the day, but I didn't feel safe going out to the beach at night, since someone was always waiting to sell drugs or hit on me, and would get angry when they were denied. I would not recommend this hotel to friends, and I most likely won't be going back to Barbados.

The staff could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable! We were bothered by the birds who constantly attempted to compete for food on our tables. This would be considered a health hazard in the United States!

This was supposed to be a mega holiday after we both retired and out us a fortune in our term £9000 for a weekn cruise plus stay at turtle beach resort.i won't comment on cruise as would be inappropriate but the disappointment in this hotel could not be left. This clearly was not a 4 star hotel,th rooms/ suites were basic with shower curtains held on by a minimal of pegs. The toilet blocked and it took 4 phone calls and 45 mins for someone to react. The whole place was in need of a mega make over. The food whilst mostly tasty was buffet style and by the time you got onto cold plates and back to table was cold. I would not fault staff who were mostly lovely but seriously . Would I recommend this hotel. Never it's not cheap and it's never a 4 star don't go there

Nice Stay

My boyfriend and I stayed at this all inclusive resort for one week. Overall it was a very nice stay. The beach is beautiful and the staff is friendly. The food was good and there was a lot of variety. Their Italian restaurant was especially tasty. Some parts of the hotel were a little outdated or needed fixing up. There was one wall in the entryway that looked like it used to be a fountain that had a mildew look to it - not very aesthetically pleasing. The pool bottom can probably be redone. Not major issues but still took notice. It’s very close to St Lawrence gap - maybe 15 minute walk. Overall, great location, good food, beautiful beach, helpful staff, and clean rooms!

My husband and myself were married here in August 2016 and it couldn't have been more perfect. We travelled with our three children and our parents. We all loved it. From start to finish everything was so laid back and relaxed. The most stress free wedding and holiday you could want! This place is beyond beautiful and the beach is absolutely stunning. The cocktails were the best I've ever had, the pink turtle one was incredible!! We can't thank the staff here enough for making our week and wedding so amazing. Turtle beach will forever hold a very special place in our hearts 💕

Memorable Family Stay

We visited the resort last August with 2 teenagers. Stayed in a suite beachfront room. Although the rooms are a bit snug it was not a problem as we were never in the room. The hotel was perfect for our family as our teenagers made friends from day one. So much to do for their age group. Water sports, gym, unlimited food, etc. And most importantly a safe environment where they can roam around with nice people. We didn't use the pool much and spent most days on the fabulous beach. Plenty of drinks were served to us on the beach and Sam looked after us with the water sports. The hotel is not five star and could do with a few cosmetic refurbishments however the staff and quality of the food outweighs this. We visited the other sister hotels 3 times free of charge which broke up the holiday. We are returning again this summer and meeting up with the family we met last year. Have upgraded to the large Seaview suite this time based on recommendations. I am a frequent long haul traveller and have to admit the people of Barbados are one of the most friendly and welcoming. The island is super safe and we always felt safe wherever we went. I would definitely recommend the hotel to families for older children. As it is safe, full of lovely guests and lots of activities for them to do. If you want a low key and more up market experience I'd recommend the 2 other sister hotels. My husband and I will definitely be staying at one of them in the future! I would recommend Waves Hotel.

This is the first review I have written and I felt moved to do so to balance some of the negative feedback I have seen from other reviewers - I understand some people may have experienced issues which affected their stay, but some of the generalisations about staff, hotel and area were not at all what we experienced. Turtle Beach is an excellent all-inclusive - not "fine dining", but not fine dining prices either. The hotel is in a great position on Barbados' South coast. The water can be lively here compared to the West Coast, but is safe, warm & clear. The water sports team are really vigilant and will let people know if they are straying into areas bets avoided. I have seen reviews suggesting people felt threatened or intimidated by beach vendors / drug sellers. This is my second visit to The Gap and this is not my experience at all - people will approach you, but they are always polite and friendly and respect a polite "no thank you". Perhaps if tourists are impolite to them they respond in kind? Food at the hotel is very good, well cooked and regularly checked. There are always meat, fish and salad options and these are all fresh. ALL staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are a bit dated but are comfortable and have great views - we stayed in a room shown as pool / garden, but we had a fantastic sea view as well. Don't be put off, this is a friendly, clean, welcoming and relaxing place to enjoy a holiday in Barbados!
