We love Turtle Bay - clean and cheerful with all inclusive food and drinks. Great for families. Good choice at mealtimes and Kids Club takes the load off. Entertainment for tourists is on every evening. Rooms are decent and the staff are friendly

Great for kids, excellent location, a wide choice of great food,plenty to do if you choose to or just relax and take in the beautiful surroundings. A variety of typical entertainment at night but it is enjoyable or you can choose to wind down in one of the alternative bars.

Turtle Bay has so many things going for it - the staff are friendly, the rooms are consistent, there is a never-ending supply of food available, and the staff go out of their way to accommodate special requirements.
