Turtle anniversaryPosted Jun 16, 2015
Pros: Very clean rooms and restaurant has superb food. I've been going there for 45 years. Staff came to ferry boat to say goodby to me.
Cons: Improve on paradise?
Location: Central to town, boating, fishing, diving, shelling.
GTC is everything you want for a Bahamas vacation. Beautiful place, scenery and a staff of wonderful people. Food at GTC was outstanding in restaurant overlooking the marina. They will even prepare a picnic lunch for you. Town, beautiful beaches and diving are near by boat. How could you ask for anything more?

This resort is so tranquil and beautiful! It's kind of spread out, so a golf cart rental is a necessity if you're planning on exploring this gorgeous little island. Everyone is incredibly friendly and helpful. The food at the restaurant is top shelf, but at a mix of prices sure to make anyone happy. The marina appears to be very well appointed, and there are a ton of activities available. The only big complaint I had was that there was so little hot water that you couldn't take a warm shower. Probably not much of an issue in the summer, but kind of chilly still in early May.

Green Turtle StayPosted Jun 7, 2013
Pros: Friendly staff, great food and very nice rooms
Cons: Room air conditioner is noisy but effective. The bar/grill by the pool was closed and should be open when the reception is.
Location: Beaches, restaurants, swimming, diving and boat tours. Proximity to Florida is great. Easy to get to - just don't miss the ferry
We chose this resort based upon Trip Advisor ratings and our need for a totally relaxing vacation. We flew into Marsh Harbour from Orlando which took just over an hour. The cab to the ferry terminal at Treasure Cay took 30 minutes and cost $85. Because our plane was late, we missed the last ferry at 5pm but there were enough people to pay for an extra run at a reasonable $15. The resort is beautiful as are the rooms. We were on the point - only a few minutes walk from reception and the restaurant, bar and shop. Unless you want to stay in your room or on the small beach/marina, rent a golf cart. These are a reasonable $50/day and you can get anywhere on this 1mile by 3 mile island. The beaches are gorgeous and when we went in May, deserted, Cocoa Bay is only a few minutes from the resort and cant be beaten. Meals at the resort and in nearby New Plymouth are excellent. In most cases fresh and always very well presented. Sea food in the shape of Conch, Lobster, shrimp and grouper is abundant and I should mention MacIntosh, Harveys and Pineapples as being particular standouts, Prices are relatively high on the Cay as they are in most of the Bahamas but as they have to pay a 52% import tax on everything coming in, it is not surprising. Budget $30 each for a main meal and get over it. The locals pay high prices as well - even at the three or four grocery stores on the Cay. A week was just long enough here for total relaxation just don't go if you are looking for nightlife..

Stället visade sig vara lika idylliskt som vi läst om i förväg. Personalen var alltid vänlig, maten enormt god och läget exemplariskt. Tänk att kunna kliva av och på den lilla färjebåten vid bryggan, 10 meter från receptionen! Vi såg kolibrier på hotellområdet och beskådade flygande papegojor från solstolen. Det var promenadavstånd till fantastiska stränder och även det fåtal villor som fanns var trevliga att promenera förbi. Det tog mindre än en kvart att köra in till New Plymouth med golfbil och den lilla staden var en upplevelse! Det enda vi beklagade var att det inte fanns någon underhållning på vårt hotell som utlovats och att en av restaurangerna på hotellet var stängd, det berodde på att det var januari och lågsäsong, men hade inte framgått i texterna vi läst i förväg.

Great location, pity about the hotel...Posted Jul 27, 2012
Pros: Nice location
Cons: No warning that our room was 20 min walk from the pool and dining room
We were taken by Jeep to a room that was a 20 minute walk, in pouring rain via a rutted, unlit path through the forest, from the main hotel. There was no telephone, the TV didn't work and there was no information about how to get back to the main hotel! The management seemed surprised that we were unhappy with the original room, and suggested that we rent a golf cart (at $50/day) to get back and forth to the dining room and pool! After complaining, we were moved to a room nearer to the main hotel which was OK.The food was over-priced and quite indifferent. The staff were generally friendly but unreliable -- the porter we requested take our bags didn't turn up, and we almost missed the ferry.
Relaxing spot with lots to offerPosted May 16, 2012 on Hotels
Overall, we really enjoyed the location and "laid-back" atmosphere of Green Turtle Club. Food was good and surrounding amenities were great. clean pool and accommodations.
