This was the second time my husband and I visited Turneffe. It was just as good the second time as the first: Lovely little villas with mahogany paneling and outdoor showers, fabulous fresh Caribbean food and drink, the nicest, most welcoming and helpful staff you could ask for, and a five minutes walk to the dock for five minute boat...

This resort completely overdelivers. It was top-notch all the way. We spent a week here, and snorkeled every single morning and again every afternoon with Beans, their snorkel guide. Plus he also led us on our night snorkel. He was just terrific, always finding the hidden eel, porcupine fish, and other shy creatures in the micro, yet always looking out...

A friend called to say he was organizing a group to meet after a holiday for a low key beautiful dive experience with a focus on safety. He knew I had missed diving and did not want to hold anyone back with my slowness caused by a health problem. Our group was organized into small teams, each with their own...

My husband and I spent a wonderful week at Turneffe Island Resort. He booked us for 15 Dives in five days. I thought I was going to be miserable.

The service was excellent, everyone was extremely nice. We didn't have any type of trouble. Rooms were clean, amazing views and the food was delicious. Great place to stay if you're looking to relax for some days or go on a diving/snorkeling/fishing trip. Couldn't have asked for more.

From the greeting at the airport, to the boat ride to the island, it just kept getting better. Rooms were beautiful, food awesome, bar staff tremendous, very clean and all staff were amazing.

We have been lucky enough to have traveled a fair amount and to have stayed at some great resorts...but we have only come back to this one for another week and it was SO worth the return visit! We chose this place to have our son get his OW certification and I can't compliment the dive staff, especially Marcela, enough!...
