I spent last week at Turtle Cove for the first time and can't express how excellent it was. From the moment I arrived I was welcomed by the staff and made to feel as welcome as if I'd been staying there for years. Five stars for the staff !!
My room was spotless, spacious and well equipped with everything I needed. The bed was huge and really comfy, water pressure in the shower was great and housekeeping kept my towels in supply and room clean.
The restaurant menu exceeded my expectations and changed every day. I felt some of the mains were a bit small for a man size appetite but overall I ate really well.
The grounds were huge and well maintained and the pool and spa were clean and very busy.....
The beach was amazing, clean and busy with lots of guests taking advantage of the privacy offered for a bit of clothing optional sun baking.
In my experience, in the past Turtle Cove has had some bad press. All I can say is get yourself, a mate / partner or group together and see for yourself that the 'Ashtray Bay' of old has gone and a new, clean, fresh and friendly Turtle Cove is there for the taking.
cheers Terry ( very happy guest ! )
