Another wonderful break!! Thank you

4 of 5
We have stayed at Sea Turtle several times over the years and always have a wonderful time. The villa is modern and clean and the beach is perfect for the kids. The recently connected wifi is a huge bonus. Between the 7 of us we had 13 devices all of which we were able to connect and use the internet without any disruption. It was especially useful in the evenings when some of the adults were working while the kids were streaming video on their devices. Thank you for another wonderful break - we will be back.

Great family and dog-friendly property!

4 of 5
Although the HomeAway app is suppose to make things more efficient, it didn't give us check in instructions until 2 hours after we checked in!! Plus all the temperatures were in fahrenheit!! Luckily our property owner was there for us and easy to contact. Our families loved the property. We walked everywhere, to the various beaches and through the bush. The kids and dogs were in paradise. The only thing we found disconcerting was the overly aggressive dogs on the beach with owners that obviously couldn't (or wouldn't) control them. Other than that we will definitely be back.
