Great getaway with fabulous staff

It's not our first & for sure not our last. First & foremost is the friendliness & helpfulness of all the staff. For value for your money, you can't beat it. You can eat & drink yourself silly :) The additions of the Cafe & Ice cream parlour - genius!

Barbados and beach lovely, Turtle Beach Hotel not so much.

Oxted

We returned from our stay at Turtle Beach on 3rd September. The beach was lovely, sea fairly rough which made for some good body boarding but children cannot go in unaccompanied. There was some seaweed, no-ones fault obviously and when it gathered on the beach it was cleared up fairly well. The pool areas are generally good although beds were at a premium and although there is a request not to reserve beds everyone did so we had to as well or miss out. The surfaces around the pools are slippery and the entrance steps on the pool with the bridge were lethal, I slipped in jarring my arm and shoulder, could've been much worse and is an accident waiting to happen. There was a drinks service around the pool and on the beach with fresh fruit in the morning and ice lollies. Have to agree with others though in saying it was not cleared up often with lolly wrappers left and glasses left around the pool although that's probably more to do with people not bothering to clear up after themselves then any fault of the staff. Mostly all of the staff were really friendly and helpful with just a couple of exceptions. Reception staff were great and the gentleman who greeted us on arrival and dealt with our luggage was lovely. Our room was fine, if tired, with some broken tiles on the floor and being on the ground floor right at the end there was no view but we could hear the sea on the other side of the hedge and it was entertaining watching the crabs rushing about. It was well cleaned daily and water bottles provided both in the room and at every bar. The most disappointing thing for us was the food and the restaurants. Breakfast in Chelonia was by far the best meal of the day. The lunch and evening buffets are very samey and uninspiring, often overcooked. You can eat a la carte in Assiago's, the food was fine but the surroundings are not. You can also eat a la carte in the Waterfront restaurant which we did on the first night. Not great. The worst thing though was the Waterfront restaurant during the day! I'm sorry but it really was not up to scratch at all. Soggy pizza with flies all around it. Lukewarm burgers and hotdogs a few salads and the most awful smell which, when I mentioned it to a member of staff, I was told was sewage!!! I'm sorry, really? It was disgusting, mainly around the food area and the smell came up through the cabinet from which the salads were served so when you opened the door, whoof, you got such a smell it was impossible to eat. The whole restaurant felt grubby and unpleasant. The only saving grace was that the little cafe served a few toasties that could be eaten by the pool as well as some ice creams (The actual ice cream parlour was closed) pastries and hot/cold drinks. We were so disappointed with the food that we ate out of the hotel 4 nights out of 8 - an expensive experience. Barbados is a lovely Island and we will happily return but we would not come back to Turtle Beach Resort.
