a wonderful experience and we will bring the rest of the family next year. This was a great adventure, from the boat ride to the atoll, seeing a crocodile on the night hike, snorkeling, the food, the staff, everything was well done. Beautiful duplexes right on the beach, with a nice patio, or comfortable lounge chairs on the beach. We... More

My sister and I stayed at Turneffe Flats for three nights. We stayed there as part of the package booked through AdventureSmith Explorations. We also visited Chaa Creek and Tikal National Park in Guatemala. The boat ride from Belize City was very interesting. My sister and I got soaking wet. But hey, that's part of the experience! We were on... More

We spent 7 days here as a group of friends. The lodging is very nice, beds are comfortable. The island has good breezes every day so it stays relatively cool compared to inland Belize. We stayed in the Reef Villa house. The food served daily is excellent and abundant. You do need to apply bug repellent whenever walking anywhere outside.... More

Just returned from a wonderful week of diving at Turneffe Flats. Although this was our first visit, we knew that we had hit on something good as we chatted with other guests on the boat ride out. More than half were repeat customers, some had been coming here for more than 20 years! The diving was fabulous, the reef was... More

All the makings of a perfect vacation: Beautiful grounds and rooms, good food, world class fishing, diving and snorkeling. And, the one key thing that would ensure our return is the outstanding guides! Fly Fishing was what brought us to Turneffe Flats so the fishing guide is a big part of the experience. Mark worked hard to ensure my husband... More

This is a great place for fishers, snorkelers and scuba divers. Particularly if you want to return to the summers of yot youth, , everyone gathered together at the end of the day to review the day (but with cocktails and snacks) before a family style dinner at communal tables. Food is very good. The owners are warm and helpful.... More

Six of us just spent 3 days (should have stayed a week) fishing for bonefish, permit and tarpon (kind of) at Turneffe Flats. Saw lots of bonefish and even caught a few. Heard that there were more bonefish than Andros Island but generally smaller and would say that is a fair assessment. Saw fair number of permit at times and... More

I didn’t realize that this was in my draft folder and never got posted! My wife and I returned home on November 8th, 2014. The basic requirements for us at a resort are: 1) Owners of the resort are onsite and working – Craig & Karen Hayes are there. 2) No cruise ship ports near by – this resort is... More

Our intention was to stay for three nights, but Mother Nature had alternative plans for us! A storm came in and we had to leave a day early. Nevertheless, our two days at Turneffe Flats was filled with activity. The accommodation at Turneffe Flats is in paired bungalows which are very clean, comfortable and well appointed. The only thing I... More

My husband and I only stayed her for three nights, however, we thought it was great. The staff is very accommodating, the food was good (good for guys, not so much for women counting calories). My husband fished for two days - one day was very windy, and I went scuba diving. Anne Marie, the dive master was excellent. I... More
