Turtle Beach - Reader Reports & Opinion
Stayed Twice At Turtle Beach But Have A Question?
My new(ish) partner, Clare and I are due to visit Rex Turtle Beach 1st Jan '04 for 2 weeks. I have visited the Rex Turtle Beach twice previously but this will be Clare's first trip to the Caribbean and Tobago, so as you can imagine she is buzzing with excitement everytime our approaching holiday is mentioned. (So am I)
Clare has 2 children from her previous relationship (disastership) a 3 & 6 year old. The holiday is booked for just the 2 of us at the moment, but we have recently been considering taking the children. This has raised a couple of questions...
A) Is there an evening babysitting service available at Rex Turtle Beach?
B) I saw on one of the posts that there is a sporadic supervised creche at Rex Turtle Beach. Does anyone have any details on this?
C) Any advice for a first time 'Dad' taking 2 young children to Tobago is more than welcomed...
New Pool At Rex
I have just received by letter and I quote.
In November we are closing the hotel to build a new larger swimming pool which will enhance the property and be ready for the New Year..
How’s about that the hotel sure needs a bigger pool. Good luck to the Rex Turtle Beach.
We are staying at the Rex next year. As I do not drive does anyone know if buses can be caught nearby to other towns like in grenada and barbados.
Are there any places to eat within a 15 minute walking distance.
That New Pool
Has anyone heard whether the pool upgrade went ahead and, if so, when it is likely to be completed? Is it beng built to the tempo of the Caribbean clock? Just wondered as I was contemplating the Rex for June next year. Surely by then? Would appreciate any info that anyone can provide.
Steve, you were right, after Tobago there is nowhere else to compare. As ever, great site.
Apologies To Grafton???
Lord De Courtnay
i am given to understand , i may have been a little hasty in my condemnation of grafton beach . to be fair ,it was a long time ago! if so i apologize, and to prove i harbour no grudges, i am going to pop along , whilst in tobago, and see the improvements, for myself. as an ex- hotelier myself, i will be very pleased to sample the NEW grafton beach, as it was obviosly in need of some improvements. once i have sampled the hotel again, i will be in an up to date position to comment, as both a seasoned traveller, and a hospitality orientated professional. cannot say fairer than that, can i? just noticed, ihave missed a "u" in obviously---- thats all i ever wanted from grafton, an acknowledgement, they got it wrong!!!!!!!anyway water under the bridge, lets enjoy paradise again at coco reef.
