Blue Sky Holidays take special care to ensure our guests are comfortable. Read some reviews and testimonials from guests who chose to stay in Blue Sky Holidays’ apartments at Turtle Beach Resort, Mermaid Beach during their Gold Coast holiday.


“We stayed at the Turtle Beach Resort for 8 nights and the facilities at the Resort were fantastic. The Splash zone was such fun for adults and kids (aged 4 and 6)! The apartment was clean and equipped with everything we needed. The sports pack with tennis racquets and golf clubs was worth the added initial cost. The location was excellent to the various beaches and lots of good restaurants in walking distance. Pacific Fair was easy to get to via buses. Having the option of using the mini buses from the Resort to Dreamworld, Sea World and/or Movie World was great. I highly recommended it to families.”

“Hello Nicky,

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. Yes this was the right blanket.

I placed the parcel on his bed for him to open. Oh, how i wish you were there to see his face-he was so happy and smiling so much you could hardly see his eyes. He grabbed it, cuddled it, then said “tie it on me mum”. Then he grabbed his hat and sword and he was off displaying great confidence. Please tell the owners of 221 a big “thank you” from me. As for Turtle Beach Resort-ladies, women, mum’s and dad’s everywhere. If you have not had a holiday in a while or just have kids from teenagers down, this is the place to be.


If you have had enough and just want to relax too. This resort has a restaurant open early in the morning to late at night with really reasonable prices, so if you don’t want to cook you don’t have to. Also it serves lovely “Pina Coladas”. However if you would like to do your own thing, the kitchens are to die for. The resort also seems to be surrounded by different types of eateries and close to all the Theme Parks.

However what made this holiday special for our families was the wonderful service received from the staff at”Blue Sky Holidays”. I required special items in my room and Rachel was more than happy to help out.

But the person whom jumped hoops to help my little boy whom became extremely attached to a blanket in the unit. Nicky, from”Blue Sky Holidays”, did everything in her power to make sure his holiday was memorable, by sending him this blanket. She is an outstanding member of staff and should be commended for making our long overdue holiday truly memorable.

Thank you Blue Sky Holidays and Turtle Beach Resort for a wonderful, relaxing and rejuvenating time.

Yours Sincerely

I just wanted to write and say that we had a great time a Turtle Beach Resort. The apartment was great. Perfect spot with the tennis court right outside. I thought for the reduced price we paid through you, we definitely got a bargain. Although we paid extra to guarantee a ground floor apartment, I thought it was definitely worth it. When we had an issue with the AC leaking you sent someone over to fix it straight away – great service. The facilities are great, with all the pools, bbq’s and the tennis and golf park was a great idea! And the splash park was certainly a hit with the kids. We would definitely book with you again and recommend it to our friends.

Beautiful place to stay

“What a great place to stay, we didn’t really have to go anywhere else could have just stayed there the whole time. Will be back”

The kids loved it!

We had a very convenient ground floor unit overlooking the splash park, the unit was clean and comfortable with everything you needed. Great facilities ensures we will stay again!

We have five children and trying to find a holiday destination reasonably priced for a large family is almost impossible and so we rarely get a chance to have a holiday. When we seen the add online for Turtle Beach Resort at such a reasonable price we were a little sceptical but we decided to give it a go. We drove from Sydney and arrived a little earlier than expected but when we called the team at Blue Sky Holiday Group they were more than happy to meet us there earlier then first arranged. We were met at the front of the resort and shown to the apartment, the consultant explained everything we would need to know about our stay in a very professional and friendly manner. We still had that ‘this seems too good to be true’ look on our faces as the consultant left. We were very happy with the apartment and all the inclusions such as a fully equipped kitchen and laundry, two bathrooms and large LCD TV.

As the kids grabbed their towels and went to the ‘splash zone’, we unpacked and decided to take a look around the resort. The first thing we noticed was how convenient everything was. The pool areas and ‘splash zone’ were right outside our door as was the wood fired pizza restaurant. As we walked around the paths you couldn’t help but notice how well the gardens and walking paths are maintained. Every turn we took led to yet another surprise like a full size tennis court and another pool area with a water slide and spa. There were many barbeque areas neatly positioned among the tropical gardens. We used these barbeque areas many times during our stay and they were always spotlessly clean and worked well.

Our kids spent many hours at the ‘splash zone’ which has many water slides and water features such as a huge bucket that spills down onto any kids adventurous enough to stand under it. We spent many hours sitting on the huge veranda beside the splash zone talking with other parents while enjoying a drink & snacks from the wood fired pizza restaurant while watching our kids on the slides. When the kids wanted a break from the water they would either watch a movie in the fully equipped cinema or did one of the free activities for kids near the reception area. When we decided to spend some time outside of the resort we found everything we needed was within walking distance. Many restaurants and stores are close by and some major shopping centres only minutes away by car. We will definitely be back and will also be recommending it to all our friends and family!

We would just like to say how happy we were with the orientation provided by Blue Sky Holiday Group upon our arrival at Turtle Beach resort. It was our first interstate holiday with our three kids and our holiday was amazing.

The kids cried when we had to go home and to be honest I was crying too as the kids didn’t even have a chance to use the kids club and I didn’t get to have my massage. We are hoping that we will get to have a next time and we can experience all the joys that Turtle Beach resort has to offer!

We stayed at Turtle beach for 10 nights over the Christmas break. We had a lovely lady from Blue Sky Holiday Group meet us at the resort and personally check us in. Our room was nice and tidy and as we had booked an executive apartment we had new lounges and furniture.

Our friends stayed in a standard apartment which was also clean and tidy but just had that older type of cane furniture. We much preferred ours for that little bit of extra money.

The kids absolutely loved the pool with the water slide and it was a mission to get them out of there each day. Overall a great holiday and exactly what we needed. We will be booking again!
