Editor’s Review of Turtle Beach
Turtle Beach gets its name, as you might guess, from the many green turtles that come ashore to lay eggs in the sand. It's not as common on this particular beach as it once was, but be sure to ask about the most recent sightings in the area. Snorkeling with and feeding turtles is a wonderful outing while in Barbados, so be sure to check with your activities director about the options.
You would never know it by looking around, but ... more Turtle Beach was built more than 50 years ago. However, numerous renovations and updates over the years, plus an attentive, meticulous staff, keep the property looking like the doors just opened a few days ago.

RoomsTurtle Beach is a pleasant 4-story resort that meanders through gardens and along the beach. An ocean view room is certainly fabulous, but a garden view room with a patio opening near the pool is quite convenient if you're the type of family who runs in and out of your room often. If you're too close to the courtyard, the nightly entertainment after dinner might disturb an early bedtime for kids.
The 161 spacious rooms, which underwent renovations in 2011, are either Junior or One-Bedroom Suites, and all have connecting capabilities. You have your choice of rooms with a queen bed and two twins, or two queens. All rooms have sofa beds. Cribs are available at no additional charge.
Each room includes a mini-fridge stocked with water, juices and soft drinks; an additional charge is incurred. Each room also has an iPod docking station and a good-sized flat screen TV, although DVD players are not available. The cable system offers movies on demand, if you're planning on a nice evening in with the family. There are plenty of electrical outlets on the credenza for charging an iPhone and camera. However, here's an oddity -- there are few electrical outlets in the bathrooms. The hair dryer is attached to the wall, adjacent to the mirror, just outside the bathroom. At least the bathrooms are quite spacious with plenty of counter space. Shower and tub combos are the norm.
Bright blue beach towels are provided in each room, but each guest will also receive a towel card for turning in and checking out additional towels poolside.
Be sure to remind the kids to keep the patio door closed with the air conditioning on. Otherwise, the floors develop condensation, creating a slippery surface that contributes to unwanted dampness in your room.
Three adults or two adults and two children fit comfortably in a junior suite.
Four adults or two adults and three children can fit comfortably in a one-bedroom suite.
