Turtle Beach - Reader Reports & Opinion
Looking Forward To Our Holiday - Any Advice From Rtb Fans?
This site has been great for helping me pick where to go in the Caribbean for a long-awaited holiday for me and my partner. The AI deal I got for a two week holiday in mid-November seemed like a great bargain and despite what people have said about the other great restaurants on the island, we're looking forward to the flexibility of having food when we want it and not having to carry money around with us. I'd really appreciate some advice on some aspects of the holiday to make sure we can get the best out of it.
We would like to see the island but as we're 24, i didn't know whether we'd be able to hire a jeep or not? Also, I suffered quite badly on holiday in Corfu with a heat rash/skin reaction last year - what insect repellent products would people recommend that will work when you have suncream on?
And what things would people suggest we take with us to get the most out of the holiday? - mosquito net/snorkel/medicines/any other suggestions?
Rooms At The Rex Turtle Beach
We are a group of 11 visiting the Rex Turtle beach in December. Eight adults and three children. Would like nice rooms - any one got any suggesions
Rooms At Rtb
I believe that some of the rooms at the RTB have been refurbished can anyone confrim this and if so let me have the numbers so that we may request them!!!
Going To Rtb 5th October
My husband and I are leaving the kids behind and to celebrate twenty years of marriage and for my fortieth birthday, are going to the rex Turtle Beach. We never had a honeymoon so this is to be it and we are both very excited. We happened upon this destination by chance as we really didn't know where to go but having told the tour operator we wanted quiet beaches and beautiful warm blue sea where we could snorkel. He offered us Either Grand Courland (for very little more money)or RTB. I chose RTB because of a dream my husband had over a year ago when he told me he had dreamt we were on holiday at a place called Turtle Beach (SPOOKY AS NEITHER OF US HAD HEARD OF IT!!) we are really looking forward to it and I have been looking at this site since we booked. I am a little worried about Franco's comments, my expectations are not 5 star at all but could someone who has been to RTB recently just reassure me that although simple, the hotel, especially the rooms are clean and the beach and sea is also reasonably clean.
We are planning to go to Sunday School to celebrate my bithday and our anniversary, hopefully with some local people and any comments on this idea would be appreciated after Franco's comments. also can anyone recommend best snorkelling sites, Is there any entertainment in the evenings at the hotel? and finally how much and when should we tip people?
It may not be much money to a lot of people but having spent £1500 for a weeks holiday (a fortune to us) it's really important that we get it right
Oh and one more thing (just to push my luck a bit further -my husband always said I can't shut up!!), where should we ask for a room with the
most beautiful views of the sea and beach, Am I right in thinking the far end of the hotel on the first of second floor? Thanks in advance to anyone who helps me to answer these questions.
New To Tobago
Hi my wife and I are going to RTB at the end of November. We had to change our booking to Tobago from Grenada. We have stayed at the Rex Grenadian before and loved it. How does Turtle Beach and Tobago compare to Greneda
