Turtle Beach - Reader Reports & Opinion
Enjoyable Stay At Rex Resort
My family and I had an enjoyable stay at this hotel. Although the hotel itself was a bit run down it was very clean and quite comfortable. We were a party of eight and each of us had a great time there. The staff were a bit serious but if you smiled at them you would get a warm smile back in return. The food was tasty and varied during the duration of our stay.
Of the eight of us, six were ladies and we each had our nails done on the beach by Rachael. This was the highlight of the entire trip, relaxing and getting your nails done on the beach. This girl is very talented and can do any pattern or design on your nails. Imagine having a Tobago sunset painted on your nail complete with palm trees with diamond coconuts and thats just a simple one! Totaly amazing to watch this girl work magic on your nails very professional. The thing is she does it all by hand with just a tiny brush. You name it she does it from acrylic nails to just plain manicures or pedicures, and it is alot cheaper than getting it done in the U.K.
Our stay at Rex was very enjoyable and all eight of us plan to return at least once every year.
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.
