“Scuba Fun Great Little Resort”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Dive vacation. Scuba facility on property Subway Scuba. Hotel is comprised of a main building with the check-in area, dining area and bar. Next to this is a covered patio. The pool is adjacent. Take the steps down to the private beach. White sand with a little calm bay. Draw back: sand flies that bite. Take spray if planning to spend time on beach--seriously. Staff are very friendly and help everyway they can. Rooms are little three or four unit buildings. Our room was clean and kept cool. Others in the group had some issues, but they were addressed immediately. Private, far from the towns. Could arrange trips in for $25 per person, which we did with a group of 14 for over 6 hours. They have a spa on the facility but I did not use cannot rate. Sad to see the week end. Beautiful little tropical resort. Special thanks to Edner, Kirby and Pablo and the rest for making the stay an excellent experience. The food was basic, but always good and sometimes better. Tons of it. Fresh melons and pineapples. Miss it already. Highly recommend as a dive vacation spot. If looking for night life, not so good.

Room Tip: All rooms seem equal to me. All offered views of ocean as far as I know. As they say, not a bad ro...

Our entire group of 13 all agree, the staff and accommodations were fabulous! The food was excellent, the service was excellent, the rooms, we stayed in the cabanas, were excellent, and the beach and sunsets were super. The dive shop was as superb as the hotel staff in friendlyness and helpfullness. Nothing on this trip could have been better, except for maybe a little more sunshine. The resort staff even helped with our planned pirates party by setting up in the pool area and providing decorations for the occasion. I don't see how they make any money with the low prices and top quality service. Definitely planning another trip back.

Room Tip: I think all the cabanas were well placed but #1 & 2 were closests to everything and had a great...

I'll make this short and sweet....

Pros:
-A/C in rooms
-king or two double bed rooms with daily housekeeping
-all inclusive meal/drink option for $35/day.....includes 5 bottled beers and a list of 25 cocktails
-waaaaaaaay too much food!! So delicious so be sure to try everything!
-made to order omelettes
-daily fresh seafood
-chefs will cook to satisfy any taste
-snacks/munchy food available
between lunch and supper
-wait staff is SUPER attentive....if your beer looks warm or is getting low, they bring another right away
-all staff speaks great English and is very friendly
-Sundays they have vendors come and set up selling souvenirs
-FULL SERVICEDIVE SHOP ON SITE!! 3 dives/day
-offers island excursions
-very easy to make reservations and quick responses via email
-FREE WiFi everywhere on the property
-complimentary kayaks, hammocks, lounge chairs, and beach towels
- CLEAN private beach
- good size pool
-indoor and outdoor dining areas
-shuttle to and from airport
-30 min ride from the tourist area (some may see that as a con but it's QUIET.)

CONS:
-Bugs everywhere and they bite! But youre in the tropics so bring heavy duty bug spray...not just OFF of backwoods....bring something with at least 90% deep.
-Random cats in the outdoor dining area. When the food is out, they swarm and meow like crazy and sometimes jump on the tables and chairs....doesnt help that some guests were feeding them from the table
-19% sales tax when paying with credit card. (Bring cash and you can avoid the tax, except at the dive shop.)
-$41 fee when you leave the country so save some cash!

I loved this place! I went to do some diving and it was perfect. I had no reason to leave the resort. (The term resort is used very loosely.) My mom, who doesnt dive came along and had a blast hanging out reading a book or just going out on the boat with me when I dive. It's not your glamorous Ritz Carlton but if you like to dive, have a clean room with a comfy bed, great food, and be away from the noisy tourist areas then this place is for you!

I lead scuba dive groups and we stayed at Turquoise Bay last year and had a great time. This year we went back and had another fabulous trip.
Yes there are "fancier" resorts on the island, but none with a warmer staff or better customer service. For example, when one member of our group was reluctant to do one of the more advanced dives the manager, Jesus, arranged for them to dive at another resort that morning so they wouldn't miss out.
Turquoise Bay Resort is an example a a resort that puts the customer first.

BTW the diving was fantastic and we will be back for another trip soon!!

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms 1-4 are closest to the main house.

We were at the resort 5/7 thru 5/17. This was our second trip to the resort. Our last trip was in 2012. There have been many improvements to the resort since out last visit. Painting, new furnishings, updated buffet items, and a new pier. We were thoroughly pleased with the updates.

The food was excellent, as usual. The staff is still top-notch. We were thrilled that 4 of our favorite wait staff was still there. You cannot find better than Pablo!

My nephew and friend came with us and they had a great time too. We were a little worried that 2 30 year olds would be bored but they weren't. They loved hanging out at the pool and getting to know everyone and they were so tired from 3 dives a day, they were the ones saying...We have to go to bed but it's only 8:30"

We will be back again and again if the resort keeps up the great work and maintenance.

Thank you Jesus and Kemberly for helping with out reservations. I promise next time will be easier!

Room Tip: We've stayed in Room 8 and 10, both king bed rooms. Try to get a room on a corner such as 8 or...
