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!

From arrival to departure we had a lovely, relaxing and enjoyable holiday, all of the staff from the Reception to the beach were helpful and attentive, without being over bearing, this is a well situated Hotel which is best suited to families, food is wholesome and tasty without the huge piles found in other parts of the Caribbean, The only thing I can say that is slightly negative is that the Hotel seems a little dated and tired, but on the positive well maintained, Adrian the Manager is a nice guy who is around a lot and happy to help. we will recommend this Hotel to friends and hopefully return in the future.

Girls Trip Part 2

This review is a follow- up from my previous review Girls Trip Part 1. From arrival to departure the team at Turtle Beach Resort was amazing. We were welcomed at the airport with a nice comfortable coach that was able to accommodate our party of 17 and all of our luggage. Upon arrival at the hotel we were personally greeted by staff and provided with welcome drinks, cool towels, and snacks. The rooms were fantastic. To my surprise each room had been upgraded to an ocean view. Each room also included sweet treats, a personalize itinerary and selfie sticks. Our table for 17 was set and reserved for us every night for dinner as requested. I requested a special set up for the last night and it was beautiful! The food was excellent and the service was great! The Turtle Beach crew also helped with orchestrating our excursions and activities. We had an Island Tour with sack lunches provided by the hotel. We had a beach day that included a special Mixology activity for our group where we learned to make select island favorite cocktails. The location of the hotel was very close to nightlife. We were able to walk to St.Lawrence Gap and visit local clubs. I can honestly say that this was our best Girls Trip ever! Thanks to Kadija, Tanya, the GM and other staff. You're service was top notch! If you are headed to Barbados I would highly recommended Turtle Beach Resort. Great food, excellent service, and tons of fun!

Stayed here only for 5 nights as we originally were going on a carnival cruise but unfortunately due to the hurricane devastation got cancelled. The drive up to the hotel was lovely and it was all set up for Christmas. Great location to get to St Lawrence gap. Attentive porters. Welcoming front desk staff. Rico was lovely, friendly, attentive. Nothing was too much trouble. Welcome drinks. Due to our flight home being cancelled I had to make a local call at the cost of $1, but only had $20 so he paid it for me. It’s the fact that he did that without question or expecting anything in return for it that makes him my most memorable person. You should be proud to have someone so lovely working for you Turtle Beach. Rooms weren’t ready but still allowed to access all areas, food and drinks. Great location on the beach. Beach bar drinks service. Maradona and the other lady( I’m sorry I can’t remember your name but it begins with an S) I always called you sunglasses cos of how you wore them. Food options a plenty and great quality. Same applies to the drinks menu. On site ice cream parlour and coffee shop which serves great coffee and salads/paninis. All included. Hot dogs and pizza served throughout the day. Amazing breakfast choices. Omelette station. Continental. Fruit. Hot breakfast food, bagels. All served by smiling, pleasant staff, throughout the day. Not once did we not get spoke to by staff members or smiled at. The on site Italian is lovely. Makes you feel like you’ve left the complex. Lovely decor, ambience. Great staff and service. All work very hard at what they do and make it look easy and are pleasant doing it. The rooms were lovely. Clean, spacious, comfortable. Amazing bed and pillows. Tea and coffee kits. TV. Safe. Hairdryer. Good shower. A/C. Great view. Great housekeeping service. I don’t have anything bad to say about Turtle Beach and I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay. So much so I’ve recommended it to myself and am going back in October 2018 😂 Thank you once again Turtle Beach. We will see you later in the year. I CANNOT wait xxxxx Linzi

Average hotel, above average prices

We stayed here for 2 weeks. Everything about the hotel was average, and in need of renovation. The food was ok, staff very attentive, room a decent size and no problems getting sunbeds. The hotel in general was very small, and not too far from the airport. Don’t bother going into Bridgetown, locals pester you excessively, and shops all a bit rubbish. Overall, Barbados did not live up to my expectations.

Great relaxing holiday

We returned to Turtle Beach having stayed there a few years ago for 10 nights from 8th December. Was allocated a very pleasant room (427) which was serviced perfectly every day with a towel change twice daily ! The reception and concierge staff were exceptionally helpful ( particularly Nigel and Herm..). The food in the three restaurants was very good and the waiting staff couldn't do enough for you ( thanks Joy). Captain Sams beach staff made the holiday , always ensuring you had a lounger where you wanted it and that you were comfortable. Maradona with his drinks/fruit/ice lolly rounds were very welcome. Location is perfect, maybe 20 ins from airport and close to the Gap if you wanted to venture further afield. Big thanks to all the staff for making our holiday perfect !!
