Hi there. My husband, kids and I are thinking of booking at the Turquesa. Does anyone know whether you can snorkel right off the beach at this hotel? Are there places close by where you can snorkel? Is it very windy in this area? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thx!! Michelle
If you're talking about the RIU Playa Turquesa (formerly the Sirenis Playa Turquesa), I've been there in March 2011. If I remember correctly, I do think you can snorkel right off the beach. I wouldn't say it's the perfect spot, but there were some corals and people did snorkel.
The nice things about this resort are the pools. Our friends brought their 5 year old kid and he had a blast in the shallow pool which is great for kids.
I liked this resort, hopefully you'll have a good time!
