We just returned home from a repeat visit to Belize and Turtle Inn. This property remains preeminent for a lot of reasons. The setting is superb, the pool just lovely, the service is impeccable, and the food delicious. Not to be missed is the Indonesian feast on Thursday nights. Many observers have singled out Martin, the property manager, for his exceptional service. He more than exceeded our expectations and is likely the reason that Turtle Inn has maintained its high ratings during his stay here. The bottle of Champagne he provided to help us celebrate our 50th anniversary and to help smooth over some ruffles in our trip was extraordinarily classy. Turtle Inn has a personal butler system. An individual is assigned to your group during your stay. Darvin was our personal butler and did an excellent job of catering to our family group of 14. In all Turtle Inn remains an exceptional property and great destination.

Room Tip: It is worth the cost to get a beachfront/seafront cottage. Those next to the pool tend to be a bit noisier

My husband and I took off immediately to our honeymoon and upon landing we knew right away the Turtle Inn was a special place. From the moment we were greeted, we were welcomed by the kindest people, most delicious drinks, and a stunning cottage. We felt like we were on our own private island. All the craziness of life washed away and we relaxed daily at the beach bar and had the pleasure of getting to know the incredible men and women who work at the Turtle Inn. They truly have the best team I have ever encountered! My husband and I caught a cold right before we left so we weren't feeling so well midway through our trip. The entire hotel made sure to take care of us like we were royalty! We had homemade tea at the ready, 5 star room service and a genuine concern for our well being. It was so amazing to get to know everyone that worked there, about Belize and to enjoy their paradise. I am so grateful we chose to come here. Also as a filmmaker, I can't deny loving that we got to stay at a Coppola resort and enjoy his vision, favorite foods and delicious wines! Thank you to the incredible team at the Turtle Inn. You are all such amazing people! Not even a bad cold could ruin this trip - it was a perfect honeymoon. We can't wait to return.

Dearest Kelli and Aaron, we are humbled by your amazing review and very kind words !

We are glad we met you both and please make sure to come back for your 1 year anniversary so we can shower you with extras in order to make up for the lost experiences. Stay in touch !

We were looking for a family vacation and were recommended Turtle Inn by Amex Travel Concierge who had stayed there. Our expectations were exceeded. We stayed in Villa One and were spoiled all week... even allowed to use Coppola's pool as he wasn't in his Villa next door. Right on the beach, we were treated like royalty by the entire staff. Placencia is small, so if you are looking for Cancun you are in the wrong place (We hate Cancun)... We live in Napa, California and are used to good food, activities and beauty and we all loved it here. We dove 2 full days, did St. Herman's Cave Tubing, Cacao Farm, Inland Blue Hole, Money River, ate at Wendy's, Omar's, Barefoot Bar, Tipsy Tuna, Turtle Inn and a few random spots. All recommended. Hotel was about 1/2 capacity which made it very intimate. We will return. Feel free to PM for any more opinion.

Room Tip: Beachfront Villas (We had Villa 1)

You couldn't ask for nicer, kinder, better trained staff during our visit last week. I wasn't prepared for no tv/ no a/c and it was hot and very humid. Even with fans I couldn't get cooled off . Otherwise, we went there to relax and we totally relaxed. There are tons of activities to do so since its the rainy season we still found lots do to. Mark, the best guide ever, drove us to the chocolate factory and that was fun. Great kayak tour and manatee tour. The best was just relaxing by the pool and talking to the friendly staff and manager who call you by name and attend to your every need.

Room Tip: You have to walk through sand to most of the rooms so take flip flops or ask for a room away from the beach.

Fantastic resort! Staff are awesome. The best I have encountered in a while. We booked the meal plan and were not disappointed! Food at the resort was really good and fresh (large organic garden on-site). Accommodations are top notch as well. Recommend lots of sun screen and bug spray (we were there in May), but would go again a the drop of a hat! We were there for 4 nights (family of 4 of which 2 were my children in early 20s).

Room Tip: This is a small resort. All rooms are good I am sure but we stayed on the beach for views and breeze.
