The Turtle Inn is a great high end resort in the southern Belizian town of Placencia. The resort is beautiful with gorgeous cabanas for visitors, a beautiful main restaurant, and stunning grounds. The staff is very helpful and attentive, and tries hard to please their guests at every turn. My only minor quibble is the management -- the place seems...

we just returned from our stay at the Turtle Inn and can't believe how remarkable the entire trip was. The experience from booking through departure was seamless and relaxing. Upon arrival the stress form a 10 hour travel was evaporated by the friendliness of the staff and our gorgeous room. Our children were quickly introduced to the local turtles and...

This hotel exceeded our expectations. We stayed here at the end of our boat charter and although, we arrived earlier than our check in time, the staff arranged for us to stay in a guest cottage (by the jungle) which we were grateful for as we needed a proper shower until our seafront cottages were ready. Each couple was extremely...

This review is long overdue - thank you to Turtle Inn for a wonderful stay (and hurricane evacuation!!!) last summer. We went with our family of five intending to spend a week snorkeling and scuba diving, but Hurricane Earl had different plans. The staff was wonderful in communicating with us and arranging transport evacuation to their sister lodge, Blancaneaux. The...

My wife and I just got back from Belize. We spent 5 days at Turtle Inn and it was wonderful. The staff was very helpful and wanted to make sure we had everything we needed. We stayed right on the water, I counted it was 25 steps from the bed to the sea. The food was good, the wine was...

Our beach bungalow was incredible! The bamboo walls, thatched roof and the biggest and most beautiful outdoor shower gave us an unBELIZEable feeling of being far away from home. The staff was incredibly friendly and went out of their way to remember our names. Cave tubing and diving were our favorite activities. TI made it very easy to arrange these....

I felt compelled to write this review since everyone should know what an amazing resort Turtle Inn is, and when paired with its sister property Blancaneaux Lodge you really get the best of both worlds. I just got back from a 5 day trip with my 16 yr-old daughter over her spring break week, and we had such a fabulous...

Exceptional service and spectacular grounds and dwellings. Though there were families, it was still a quiet and terrific place to relax. Wish we could have stayed longer. My only complaint is we couldn't swim in the ocean due to Jellyfish, but you can't control Mother Nature.

Just returned from 5 days at the Turtle Inn. While there are many thatched roof, ocean front properties what distinguishes the Turtle Inn is a true service ethos. This is an amazing property with stunning views, breathtaking sunsets and handcrafted wood cottages. Every detail is exquisite. It is clear this is unlike any other resort. This resort, its amenities and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Luxury and unspoiled beauty on a pristine white-sand beach.Turtle Inn is a true labor of love. Less than a year after Francis and Eleanor Coppola acquired this beachside refuge in 2001, it was swept out to sea by the forces of Hurricane Iris. Turning disaster into triumph, the Coppolas led a two-year reclamation project, creating a magnificent resort that is consistently ranked among the best in Central and South America.This 25-room seafront hideaway combines natural wonders with luxury style. Accommodations are in individual thatched cottages, decorated with handcrafted Balinese furnishings and naturally cooled by the ever-present sea breezes. Just steps beyond your private deck, the white-sand beach dissolves into the clear Caribbean ocean. In addition, the resort has two infinity swimming pools for enjoying the day. ... more   less
