Turtle Inn is such a beautiful place. The accommodations, service, and food were exquisite! We got to go kayaking in the sea, enjoy a luxurious room, lounge at the pool, and the staff made us feel like royalty.

We had a seaview cottage decorated in a rustic manner which was very spacious and close to the beach, main building and family pool. It had a large bath/shower and outdoor shower. The staff throughout were really helpful especially on the snorkel trips. The beach is fairly narrow here. My main reservation was that the continental breakfast only is included...

We spent five nights at the Turtle Inn over the holidays with our kids aged 9, 11 and 13, after a three-night stay at Blancaneaux Lodge (which we also loved and was a perfect compliment to our beach time). Everything was fantastic our entire stay, especially in light of the fact that we had quite a lot of rain and...

We celebrated the end of 2016 and welcomed 2017 at Turtle Inn. Everything about this beach hideaway is perfection--the villas, the service, the details, the food... The pool is peaceful and the tropical, lush resort is overshadowed only by the incredible waterfront setting. Martin, the manager, and his staff threw a lovely soiree to welcome the New Year and our...

We stayed at Turtle Inn for a week in February 2016 in one of the Oceanfront Villas. The service during our stay was impeccable - from housekeeping all the way up to the general manager - everyone was professional, helpful and friendly. The highlight for our girls was the daily delivery of breakfast to our room.

Turtle Inn was a great way to celebrate our honeymoon. We were referred by family members and we are very grateful. Turtle Inn staff was very friendly and accommodating. The views and amenities were on point. I definitely recommend eating at Turtle Inn's Auntie Lubas. Also, the town of Placencia is cool to see if you get the opportunity between...

We stayed at La Lancha and Blancaneaux nearly six years ago and enjoyed them, it didn't work out to stay at Turtle Inn that time but we said we definitely would if we ever came back to Belize. The cabanas are very beautiful and stylish and ours was certainly on the beach, it was almost in the water, but I...

Very nice romantic resort with a super friendly and attentive staff. A few minor issues that prevent a five star review - For our visit in December 2016, it rained heavily every single day. Certainly not the resorts fault, but it impacts my desire to go back - The family guest villa only had queen sized beds. Combined with the...

We have stayed at the Turtle Inn three times - a total of four weeks - the most recent being last week. The accommodations, the property, the restaurants, the services and the beach are outstanding. The staff, from the General Manager, Martin down to the gardeners, cannot be more hospitable. They make every effort to assure that your expectations are...

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
