I absolutely loved Barbados! There are people from all walks of life who emigrated there for a better lifestyle, and you can tell instantly that they found it in Barbados! Barbados is English speaking too and they drive on the same side of the road as us, so it a great island to hire a car and go exploring. Turtle Beach is located right on the beach along the lively South Coast. This all-suite all-inclusive hotel offers great water-sports and is ideal for couples or families who are looking to be close to all the action. I love that they offer free exchange dining between its sister hotel, Crystal Cove, you won’t feel you are dining in the same place every night.
