My husband and I spent June 22-June 25, 2015 in C-5 Coconut cottage seafront just steps away from the sea and poolside. We couldn't ask for a more perfect location! Service was top notch. One night we requested dinner on our screened porch and it was perfect. If you like you can even request it on the beach if weather... More

We just returned from Turtle Inn where we spent four days after spending our first three days at Blancaneaux Lodge. My family was looking to do something different (Blancaneaux) and then decompressing at a beach resort. We definitely found that at Turtle Inn. The staff was simply excellent. Our check-in experience with Raylee could not have been any better...and she... More

First, I want to say the reason for the relatively low score, is for all the rampant destruction of all the mangroves and wildlife habitat of the neighboring area, especially starting adjacent to their south. I am not sure how management feels, but given their eco-conscious ways, I can imagine they are not terribly happy or supportive of the lack... More

Simply put......a slice of paradise. Service was outstanding from reservations to check in and on. Attentive and extremely friendly and informed staff who provided an ambience and level of service befitting the grandeur and location of this wonderfully located and tastefully designed and appointed property. A return visit will be on the cards!

Before our trip to Placencia, my husband and I were debating between staying at Turtle Inn and another resort. We had stayed at Coppola's resort "La Lancha" in Guatemala and absolutely loved it. So, this time we opted for another place just for the sake of staying somewhere different. However, we made the wrong choice. After the first day of... More

We rented a two bedroom ocean front villa for the two of us for a little getaway. This hotel was incredible. Everything about the hotel was top notch. There is not much to do away from the hotel. so be ready for a very relaxing stay.

For our honeymoon, my husband and I wanted to go somewhere out of the country that was safe, less expensive (than Europe or Fiji), and provided an adventure! Belize was it!

I literately cried when we walked into the lobby because it was so beautiful. This place is amazing, my only complaint is that the food wasn't that great. Loved the outdoor shower. Loved the iguanas that made trails in the fresh raked sand in the mornings. Went diving, rode bikes, relaxed. It was reallllly hot an humid and there is... More

We spent 6 nights in Belize for our honeymoon - the first 3 nights in Blancaneaux (another Copola resort) and the last 3 nights here. While the setting was gorgeous, the room incredible, service and food good, we had really windy weather and were unable to get out to snorkel at the reef - REALLY disappointing! I am sure that...

Thank you for your wonderful review and congratulations ones again- and truly sorry mother nature did not cooperate as far as marine activities! It certainly was a windy week which is pretty uncommon. Normally weather systems move in and out quickly. You will have to come back ! Warm Regards- Martin Krediet. More
