We just returned from our first trip to Turneffe and loved every minute of it. The resort was clean and comfortable. The food was excellent, we even bought the cookbook. The staff was superb! Best of all, the diving was spectacular. We saw barracuda, sharks, eels, grouper, lobster, octopus, eagle rays, dolphins, turtles, and much more. I wouldn't change a... More

Back again, for the 8th year in a row, and Turneffe Flats is as wonderful this time as it was the first. Tranquil and charming, with the most amazing staff, and a stunning location that for us is one of the most special in the world. We come back each time rejuvenated and relaxed, and well fed -- the meals... More

Was looking for the perfect getaway spot for some scuba diving with my twenty year old son. Last year we went to the Cayman Islands. This year, we thought we would try Belize. And I could not have picked a better place to go than Turneffe Flats. It is without doubt one of the most tranquil, charming, beautiful places around.... More

Just returned from my third visit to T Flats to fly fish for permit, bone fish, and tarpon. The fish cooperated adding to the enjoyment. I've always found the accommodations, food, guides, and staff helpful, cooperative and friendly. The fishing guides are knowledgeable, hard working, and fun to fish with... I shall return. Rob W.

My husband and I just returned from Turneffe Flats. Everything about the place was great. Even though the wind was blowing we still saw fish. We went to flyfish for Permit, Bonefish and Tarpon. All the staff was so friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and kept that way. The food was very good and they were very accommodating... More

I visited Turneffe Atoll and stayed at Turneffe Flats last week for an ECO adventure vacation for the first time. It was an extraordinary experience. The Atoll itself is an incredible act of nature! Though I was there to experience an ECO adventure, I was also introduced to the many fishing and diving experiences they offer and came away with... More

We have picked Turneffe Flats because it offered more dives a week than other resorts near by. It also seemed less pretentious and was slightly less expensive. During boat ride to the island I started panicking , as other vacationers referred to it as "fishing village", and I was not willing to sleep in the rustic cabin. Boy, I was... More

Just returned from a week's fishing and am in the midst of getting a group to go back next year. The food is well prepared and plentiful. The main lodge encourages guest interaction. The rooms are pretty basic but very clean and comfortable - can't imagine needing any thing else in them. The staff is really attuned to guest comfort... More

My visit to Turneffe Flats was a dream come true. I wanted to try saltwater fly fishing for the first time and also do some scuba diving, which I had done before. I was able to do both, diving most mornings, fishing most afternoons, and electing to do a few days of just diving or just fishing. The fishing skiff... More

My husband and I spent 3 days at Turneffe Flats. We enjoyed everything about it. The owners, Craig and Karen, are welcoming and helpful. The staff is excellent. The food is quite good, and excellent if you take into account the location of the resort so far offshore. The accommodations are basic, but comfortable and with nice details such as... More
