To start, yes this place is expensive. After staying here, I can say it was worth it as the service was that of a borderline 5 star resort. We were greeted by name upon arrival along with most of our meals at the resort. We had a hand written note and fresh bakes chocolate chip cookies waiting for us in...

My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon in Belize. We did 3 nights at Blancaneaux Lodge and 4 nights at Turtle Inn and had the most amazing time at both. The staff is very personable and attentive and eager to help out with any needs. Our ocean front cabaña was beautiful and the pool was great. We...

We stayed there in March. The service was good, the location of our cabana was on the beach. However, since the cabanas are screened in and close together you hear your neighbors. We couldn't sleep in because they were up at 6 AM everyday and the children were noisy, to say the least. The cabanas need and updating as well....

Turtle Inn has a very nice location and the rooms are amazing. Very spacious. I love the outdoor shower which is set in a enclosed backyard. The room has no AC, so make sure to travel before the rainy season. It gets very hot and humid and it's hard to stay cool at night. We had all windows and shutters...

The Turtle Inn is fantastic. The friendly attentive staff greeted us by name when we arrived and took great care of us. Our cottage was beautiful and all of the restaurants served delicious food. We will be back.

Beautiful place on the beach near the village of Placencia. The bungalows are all with thatched roofs, very private, with numerous private pools, and bar and hammocks in front of the waves. It's a great place for a tranquil respite.

Our vacation at Turtle Inn was perfect. We were gifted with beautiful accommodations, delightful meals and beverages, amazing surroundings, and the care of friendly and dedicated staff members who worked diligently to ensure our needs were met, our questions were answered, and we were relaxed and happy. A one-word summary of our experiences is "WOW!" We left footprints in the...

The Turtle Inn is a great high end resort in the southern Belizian town of Placencia. The resort is beautiful with gorgeous cabanas for visitors, a beautiful main restaurant, and stunning grounds. The staff is very helpful and attentive, and tries hard to please their guests at every turn. My only minor quibble is the management -- the place seems...

we just returned from our stay at the Turtle Inn and can't believe how remarkable the entire trip was. The experience from booking through departure was seamless and relaxing. Upon arrival the stress form a 10 hour travel was evaporated by the friendliness of the staff and our gorgeous room. Our children were quickly introduced to the local turtles and...

This hotel exceeded our expectations. We stayed here at the end of our boat charter and although, we arrived earlier than our check in time, the staff arranged for us to stay in a guest cottage (by the jungle) which we were grateful for as we needed a proper shower until our seafront cottages were ready. Each couple was extremely...

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
