In beautiful Placencia, Belize is the Turtle Inn. It was our first time to Belize so I wasn’t sure what to expect but let’s just say the Turtle Inn cottages, houses and main house are world class. I especially enjoyed Sophia’s House, which held 3...More

Sadly, although this is a lovely property it is living off reputation and the Coppola brand and is not interested in providing an experience and service that matches the very high price tag. Overall service was disappointing with most staff nit seeming to care too...More

About
Description
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 ...More 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. Less
