Customer service was severely lacking and condos need major updating for the prices being charged. Even making the reservation was difficult and a few simple questions about the condos took several hours to be answered. Receptionist tried to charge my credit card before even giving me a total and was very pushy trying to get me to stay an additional...

We are very sorry that your experience was not up to your standard and are heartbroken that we did not meet your expectations. Our condos are individually owned, each owner decorates to their own taste. We do offer a 3 for 2 special (book 3 nights & only pay for 2) this time of year and perhaps there was a...

We absolutely love the Grand Rivers area and staying at Green Turtle Bay. We are frequent visitors and have never had a bad experience! The rentals are clean, accommodating and have a beautiful view of KY Lake. Even if your rental doesn't face the water, its a short walk to enjoy the view. There are restaurants in the GTB area...

By your review it sounds as if you have discovered all that we love about our Water-Way-of-Life! Did you get to enjoy a live show at the Badgett Theater in town? Did you try a golf cart to get around for the weekend? Thank you so very much for the great review and for choosing us to spend your vacation....

We stayed at the Green Turtle Bay Resort. We stayed in a 1 bedroom condo with a view of the lake. We rented a golf court and did some sightseeing. We ate at Patti's and it was delicious! It was very relaxing and plan to return again some day.

The Condo rental gets five stars. The boat rental is a racket. Budget $65-$100 added to your daily rental to pay for a prop when you check your boat back in. The props they use are what I'd call break-away aluminum props that evidently break if striking water. We rented a pontoon 4 days and had to pay for a...

Thank you for your great review of our condos! We are happy to have our brand new rental boat fleet this year. We take great care to educate the operator of the boats before the boats leave the dock and when they return. I understand that you did have to purchase two new replacement props during your four day rental....

We initially went here looking for a boat at their sales division at the marina but after that we wondered around and there are great places to stay, fun downtown area with many shops and places to eat, as well as a great marina. You can get here by land or water and it looks to be a nice relaxing...

We have never been disappointed in our stays at Green Turtle Bay. This year there were 14 of us and we had both a 4 bedroom condo and 1 bedroom condo rented. We were celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary with all of them. This resort is strategically located for our family in Illinois, Indiana, and Missouri. They offer beautiful accommodations,...

Don't pass this place up if you're staying in the Kentucky Lake/Barkley Lake area. Beautiful condos. Great accommodations. Comfortable beds. Friendly staff. We have stayed at Green Turtle Bay in Grand Rivers, Ky many times. Never get the same condo, but all have been nice. The view is also great.
