We have been to Turtle Bay Beach Club numerous times and have seen our children grow up through the kids club and yet still we were all happy to return once again.

Two thirds of the guests are elderly 60 (+) and at times it feels like a retirement village that you have inadvertently stumbled across, but with a perverted twist, due to the regular appearance of nervous...

Dear Trip Advisor reviewer, As a hotel we were most disturbed to read your report of 'nervous young African women' frequenting the hotel in the evenings as we are totally against this kind of tourism on our premises. We are a family hotel that prides itself on its wholesome values and we have rules and regulations in place to prevent...

I have just returned from TBBC, and what a place. Absolutely fantastic. Lovely, lovely people, fantastic food, fantastic location. I can't fault anything about my holiday. I can now fully understand why so many people return time and time again.
