Absolutely loved Turtle Bay Beach club. Beach location excellent , staff really friendly & helpful. Our 1st time all inclusive and we thought it was real value for money. Not 5 star accommodation but didn't expect it to be but we had nothing to complain about. Would certainly recommend.

We always look for 5star, but this hotel ticked all the boxes in every way. The rooms are comfortable, we had a suite ( they only have 2 ) and...

The hotel is getting old and needs TLC but apart from that it must be one of the best hotels in the world. We first came here in 2000 and have been back every year since, you cannot improve on this hotel
