Stayed here for a week in late November 2016. Got caught up in some bad weather, but not too bad (except for one day). Had a great time. Great diving. Saw lots of Eagle Ray, sand sharks, eels, and turtles. One lemon shark. Lots of other stuff. Great staff and food is fine. Stayed in a private villa and liked...

From the minute they picked us up at the hotel, until they dropped us off at the airport, we were 100% taken care of. Usually they pick people up at the airport, but we were already in Belize City for a few days sight seeing. They took charge of all of our bags and transported them to the island in...

This island resort is absolutely beautiful, and the staff is wonderful. It is an hour and a half boat ride from Belize City to get there, but once you are there you don't want to leave. The food is incredible, they have a cool bar on the beach, and it's really quiet. The rooms are very nice, large, with AC...

My husband and I traveled with another couple to Turneffe Island Resort at the recommendation of our travel agent. We stayed in the Superior Rooms which were spacious rooms on the second floor with a screened in porch. The rooms were beautiful but were not well insulated with thin walls so you could hear your neighbors. Luckily they were friends...

We just got back from Turneffe Island Resort and had an amazing time. We went for the Diving which was great. Good walls and reefs within 5 minutes. Did 2-3 dives per day. Reefs were in very good condition with loads of life. The entire diving operation was very professional and out to make sure everyone had a good time....

I just returned from visiting Turneffe Island Resort. It was exactly as advertised; it's not an over-the-top resort loaded with amenities. There is no TV, the rooms are small with only the basic needs. During the stay I met and made new friends as you dine "family style" each meal. The food is good as we ate mostly "comfort" food...

We went there for diving. The island is very nice, small and the maintenance is excellent! The food is very good, meals are served in family style so you can socialize with other guests. The diving is very nice and the day trip to the blue hole worth the trip!

No need to look any further if you are booking a trip to Belize for scuba diving, fly fishing, or a completely relaxing vacation. The staff, meals, accommodations, dive operation -- everything -- was first class. I will remember TRI as a trip of a lifetime.

I love this place. My 14 year old son and I were there for a week of diving. We are not experienced divers, so cannot compare Turneffe to other locations, but we thought the sites were great: beautiful plentiful corals and fish (rays, eels, turtles, shark, startlingly colorful reef fish) and all close to the resort. Our dive master, Marcela,...
