Turtle Beach - Reader Reports & Opinion
Maz And Paul
Well, after months of reading reviews both good and bad, we are off to the RTB tomorrow. We stayed at the Toucan Inn just before christmas, which was our first visit to Tobago, and fell in love with the country and people. So delighted with what we had found, we wanted to share it with our youngest two teenagers, 15 and 17. so, this time, we chose A.I, which we've never even considered before, purely so we dont get driven mad for dollars.
Depending on the latest review, we've been excited, worried, nervous, then happy, all in turn, as we want our family to love the place too. Its their first trip to the Caribbean. Well, you know what teenagers are like!
So, watch this space. We will post an honest opinion of everything upon return, from the viewpoint of an ordinary family with no expectations, and no attitude. We just want to lime.
You can bet on one thing though, we're gonna get those kids to Cristals in Store Bay on saturday night and eat and dance till we drop! (no, they dont know yet)
Will They Let Us Use The Pool ,etc
After spending a fantastic week at "Birdies Nest" last year,I will be returning to Tobago in feb of 2005. I will once again be staying at the nest but would like to use some of the facilities at the RTB, i.e the pool, bars etc. Does anyone know if this would be acceptable.
Dress Code At The Rex Turtle Beach Resort
This is our (boyfriend Steve and myself) first trip to the Caribbean and we're very excited - we're travelling in less than 2 weeks but we need to know some of the essentials!
I've had a good look at the reviews posted and there are a few comments on the dress code required for dinner at the Turtle Beach. Can someone please advise if it is strictly no jeans or t-shirts? We're not scruffy but prefer to dress more casually when on our hols......
We've seen several recommendations of particular room locations - can anyone give us the definitive guide as to which room we should be aiming for if we want the best view?
Sunday School - what time should we aim to get there? What's the best time to get picked up by taxi to go back to the resort?
PS - thanks for all the info already provided by the site. We can't wait to go!
Hi Steve, just a few questions re. myself & female friend's visit to Tobago on 7th.Oct. for a week. I am armed with some info.(Rough guide to..)but it would be nice from the horse's mouth so to speak...!
1. We will be staying at Turtle Rex, not all inclusive because an extra £250 a week for food sounds a lot of food for us!!! Also - because we don't want to be tied to the hotel. In which case, my question is - Will we be able to find food easily thereabouts?(We hope to eat the local fare.) We are not big eaters - but don't want to starve ourselves! Also - as we want to explore the island - I suppose it would be best if we hired a car. As we are both on a budget..can you recommend the cheapest car hire place nearby.(As we both don't know much about technical things on cars - also, the safest!) My next question concerns innoculations. I am going to the GP Monday as I need a polio & Hep. A booster.(Had typhoid jab. 2 yrs. ago)Is there anything else that you would think necessary? Thanks in anticipation. Marian.
Sailing And Snorkel?
Hello - Thinking of going to The Rex end of Nov (2004). Would you advise me whether there is any sailing, what the snorkeling is like and whether we should try to wait until January to go - ie: if the rain will be bad?
