Turtle Beach - Reader Reports & Opinion
Just Back From The Rex Turtle Beach Hotel
Just returned from 2 glorious weeks at the Rex. I found the hotel very nice and clean and spacious. (If you are looking for luxury this hotel is probably not for you but it is only a 3 star hotel and you get what you pay for!)All the staff and locals were very friendly and helpful.
The beach is great.Very long and sandy but be careful of the big waves.Not a good beach for children. Take some 50%Deet insect repellant as i got bitten before i slapped it on.The pool is very nice and big. I went room only but found the meals in the hotel expensive (£18 for dinner. £9 for breakfast)so i would go AI next time. I am a veggie and found plenty to eat in the hotel and enjoyed the food very much.There are very few restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.I emailed the hotel with my room requests and got exactly what i wanted. A very big,quiet room with an amazing sea view (room 355).I would recommend Peter Cox tours if you want to see the island and its wildlife.You can book them at the hotel.Peter Cox is a great guy and devoted to conserving the wildlife on Tobago. Shame the government isn't! I was lucky to see a nesting turtle on Turtle beach! I got no trouble from beach vendors and felt very safe at all times on the island-even wallking at night on turtle beach.
There are 4 stray dogs that live on the beach at the hotel.Please be kind to them as they are very friendly and like to be taken for walks.Please also try and explain to them not to dig up turtle nests!Tobago needs to neuter its stray dogs and cats and do more to protect its endangered leatherback turtles.Only 100,000 left.
I would like to thank this website for all the useful advice and help i found on it.
Weddings At Hilton Tobago
My partner and I are getting married at the Hilton in May and wondered if anybody else had got married there, what the service was like etc. But most importantly what is the weather like in May, is it going to be as rainy as my father is convinced!!??
Bottled Water Included In All Inclusive Option?
Can anybody who has stayed at the Rex Turle Beach confirm whether or not you can get bottled water from the bar with the All Inclusive option? I have 2 young children who don't drink fizzy drinks and you can't drink fruit juice all day long !
Can anyone tell me what voltage is pumped out by the electric sockets at the RTB? Need to decide whether to buy 110V charger or another battery for digicam.
Anyone Just Returned From Rex Turtle Beach?
Just wondering if anyone has recently returned from staying at the Rex Turtle Beach??
My Husband & I are going for 2 weeks in March & and I am slightly concerned about the reviews I have been reading about the hotel.
We are going mainly to scuba dive so dont suppose we will spend a great deal of time at the hotel but my parents are joining us & may well spend more time there than us.
Any comments greatly appreciated - its our first time to Tobago and hope it wont be the last!!
