turtle beach resort needs ALOT of improvement

The staff was nice but not accommodating enough because we were not able to choose the type of room we wanted even though there were rooms empty. The rooms were bare and seemed to be dirty and not cleaned for some time. The furniture within the room was VERY out of date. I felt like I was in an army barracks because that was the set up of the rooms. The first night we had no clean water for about 12 hrs. The water in the pipes and shower was brown and unusable. The food and drinks were good and the serving staff, very pleasant. The location and view from the seafacing room I was in was superb because it was right on the beach. There is no internet in the rooms, only in the lobby. No fridge or microwave in the rooms either. Even though I had the all inclusive package I did not use the water sports facility so I can't review that aspect. But if you want to do water sports you have to wake up early to get access to all of the options because they start their activities between eight thirty and nine. In addition the television only had about 12 channels and they weren't consistent. For example, one night HGTV was showing and by the next day we could not find that channel anymore it was 12 totally different channels that were there and of course with our luck all of them were in Spanish. Overall the resort needs ALOT of work. Right now they're at the standard of a motel. Not good at all.

Unclean, unsafe, and unsavory

First, it should be noted that the hotel is not in Scarborough but in Black Rock, a considerable distance from Scarborough. The line at the front desk was long and filled with angry customers. We had requested a crib, if which they had no record and it took over an hour of unanswered phone calls and trips to the front desk to get one. Staff is absurdly rude, food is bland and limited. The entire place smells like a septic tank, man who delivered our crib smelled of booze and cigarettes and there's an open archway to the very public street. A band blasted bad music until 10am on a Monday.

Decent

The hotel's features are not the newest and may not be the fancy hotel experience you may be looking for. If you're looking for something more quaint and rural, and wish to interact with the people of the area, this trip is good for you! The weather is warm, the sea is right outside your room and local cuisine is tasty Hope this helps

One of the nicer features was the fishing village right next door and everyone was very friendly. You can see fishermen bringing in fish or unwrapping their nets and you could have joined in

Okay hotel

Our room in the hotel was so far away from the reception hall and the pool it took us 5-8 minutes to walk to the room. The room itself was nice (ocean front) but that is about the only good thing about this hotel. The pool was only 4 feet deep and there was a jacuzzi but it didn't work. It also was more of a family-style hotel and not suitable for a young crowd.

Good but Average

This place is completely average which is not a bad thing. The room was ok,the food was ok,the location was ok.Sit by the pool and relax ,take a dip and swim up to the poolside bar and grab a drink or go 20 feet from the pool and take a stroll on the beach. I got the all inclusive package so food and drinks were "free" so to speak.If you plan on not leaving the resort then you should get the all inclusive. If you're not going to be eating three times a day and drinking a lot then it might not be worth it.

Not Very Happy...

Upon entering the hotel we were warmly greeted by the staff. They had drinks available to use as well as a clean peppermint scented hand towel to clean up. That was wonderful until we found out... *The hotel was NOT in the Scarborough. It was in Courland Bay. *It was away from anything near Scarbourough and Crown Point which is where all the interesting places are. *The beach was murky and the waves were crazy. *We were bored and had it not been for the pool we would not have had anything to do. *Dinner was expensive at the only restaurant there with the same menu of about 16 or so items to choose from. *Three of the dishes on the menu with chicken was not available because they didn't have chicken. Who does not have chicken at a restaurant?!!!! *There were only about 8 channels on the tv and one of them was in Spanish so we really had 7 channels to choose from. *We had no phones in our room because they were doing maintenance on the phonse system. We had to take a long walk to the front desk anythime we need to talk to someone which was really annoying!!! *Our safe was broken and they were clear on the fact that they were not going to fix it. *The room was clean but not updated at all. I would never recommend or return to this place again. I can't believe the incorrect advertisement of this place on its location which is really wrong.

The pool closes at 6pm :( (why?)

We checked in about 5:30pm, after a long trip. A/C didn't work in the room, so we went to the pool to unwind. We were kicked out of the beautiful, well-lit pool after less than 10 minutes, because it closed at 6pm!( <--for no particular reason - 3 different employees didn't know WHY ) We were finally re-accomodated to an air-conditioned room after the 3rd request, some hours later. We were not allowed to look at the breakfast buffet prior to purchasing it; we were not allowed to pay cash at the restaurant or the swim-up bar; we were given mis-information at the front desk 3 times... there were just too many rules. I felt like a number, not a valued customer.
