Turtle's is the Pool Bar for the Sundial Beach Resort and Spa. The food is average, but the prices are not- $$$$

We walk to this cute little tiki beach bar when we stay at a neighboring complex. The happy hour is daily from 3-5 and we make it most days. Get the Pina Colada! Bar tenders are great and the food is great too!
