The all-inclusive entry in the Elegant Hotels chain (which also operates The House and The Tamarind), Turtle Bay is set on 1,500 feet of white sand beach where the terrapins of its name often come to nest. When they say “all-inclusive,” they really mean it. Your room rates cover all alcoholic beverages, snacks, and meals—which, this being Barbados, also includes afternoon tea—as well as complimentary water sports, including snorkeling, kayaking, wind-surfing, and Hobie Cat. What’s more, if you tire of the fare at the Turtle Beach’s own trio of restaurants, you can arrange to have lunch or dinner at any of the restaurants at other Elegant Hotels properties: The Tamarind, Crystal Cove, and Colony Club. The resort caters to couples and to families, with a separate kiddie splash pool and a kids’ club for ages 3–11.
