We recently returned from a 4 night stay at Turtle Inn, and while we were disappointed, I feel like this won't be the case for almost everyone else. Based on our experience, here's how to make the most of yours: 1. One of the room options offered to us during the booking process was a "Colibri apartment," which we were...

Mid-afternoon dinnerish lunch. Food was great and the service was great. Everyone was so friendly. Fish tacos and a wonderful salad with fresh fish. I will certainly be back and look forward to trying other items at the resort.

Turtle Inn is an excellent choice for your stay in Placencia, or for your stay in all of Belize for that matter. The villas are gorgeous. The beachfront villas are so close to the water that it only takes about 10 steps and your feet are wet. This make for a beautiful view and keeps the breeze blowing through the...

This is Francis Ford Coppalas resort. He has 2 in this country and we want to go back to visit the one in the mountains to compare. This resort was absolutely one of the best experiences I've ever had. The staff here are unsurpassed. They are truly happy to be there and want to make your stay as enjoyable as...

We only came for dinner, but oh, it was a good one! The Rijsttafei presentation was truly impressive and the best we've had since Europe. The Mare is a lovely and comfortable setting. We arrived early and checked out the extensive vegetable garden. To our surprise, the gardener on sit offered us an extensive tour, including the chicken coop!

My wife and I were at Turtle Inn Jan 23-30, 2017 for a friends wedding. The resort and its staff were fantastic. The GM (Martin) was always around visiting with the guests and the resort staff seemed to know what we were thinking before we could ask the question! The Bar Manager at the Beach Bar (Fermin) and his team...

Overall great experience. The huts are clean spacious and easy to access. Outdoor shower is a invigorating and refreshing experience, The place is close to "town center" and they give you bicycles that make it super easy to get around,

We were staying in another resort in Placencia (what were we thinking?), and it was truly and remarkably bad. We went for a dinner at the Turtle Inn and it was if light and color came flooding back into our lives. We inquired at the front desk and there was availability, luckily there was a cancellation - and we immediately...

What a wonderful way to kick off our family trip to Belize. We are a family of 4 (2 adult "kids") and had a wonderful stay in the 2-bedroom beachfront villa (Villa 2). We had quite a journey from LA (layover in Houston, then in Belize City, and a 6-seater plane to Placencia Airport) and our arrival at Turtle Inn...

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
