My family and I had been to Turtle Beach about 12 years ago when my sister and I were young, and from what I remember we'd had a lovely time.
Before going back after so many years, we were slightly worried things might have changed and we would be disappointed, but this definitely wasn't the case as it was even better than we imagined!
The atmosphere is relaxing, the staff are all friendly and helpful and the hotel itself is fantastic with new, very clean facilities, two lovely pools and a gorgeous beach just footsteps away. We also loved sampling some of the local food at their different themed buffets at Chelonia and at the Waterfront restaurant.
In terms of location, it's very close to the airport so the transfer is very quick, but you don't get the noise from the airport that you might expect. It's also close to some shops and bars if you'd like to have a wander out and explore.
Dover Beach is just a two minute walk away and is great for surfing - my dad, brother-in-law and I all surf and had a fantastic time with Barry's Surf School on Dover Beach, and they also took us out on some trips to Freights where we found incredible, clean waves. If you're a surfer, I highly recommend them!!!
Overall, my stay at Turtle Beach was one of my absolute favourites - I'm already planning when I can go back!
