My wife and I just returned from a remarkable 6 day stay at Turtle Inn. While this is a luxury resort with prices to match, it actually represents tremendous value. The service/hospitality here is unequaled and should serve as a benchmark for any hotel in the world. The staff is not only friendly but responds immediately to requests. They even...

We had the best time at Turtle Inn and can't wait to go back. From Alfonzo (who should win Concierge Of The Year award for SURE!), to the fabulous beach captains, to Terryanne, the amazing spa staff, Ocho (the resident pup!) and to Jimmy & Ferman at the pool bar....we were so well taken care of. The rooms are huge...

My husband and I stayed at the Blancaneaux lodge and Turtle Inn for our honeymoon, followed by another hotel on Ambergis Caye. Both Coppola properties were amazing but the Turtle Inn was truly special and the perfect place to relax and unplug for a few days. Placencia was our favorite beach area in Belize. Our beachfront villa was beautiful, spacious,...

Turtle in was such a great experience! The staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The spa was so peaceful and serene. Accommodations were top notch! We loved that Turtle Inn supports the local humane society. Seeing "Ocho" around every day was the perfect touch to our stay!

My husband and I snuck away from our kids to celebrate our 20th anniversary! Upon arrival we were treated like royalty. The cottage was beautiful and the outdoor shower/garden area was breathtaking, beautiful flowers in bloom. The food was amazing, a lot of it coming from the organic garden which I recommend having a tour of on your visit. The...

We are frequent travelers and have been to Belize a few times now. The Turtle Inn is by far one of favorite places to stay in the world! Martin and his staff are wonderful and the level of service is unprecedented. We stayed over the Christmas and New Year holiday and they did so much to make it feel special....

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...

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
