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

Paradise is a place and luxury is an attitude. You will find both at Belize’s Turtle Inn thanks to General Manager and Host, Martin Krediet, and his staff. Like an art director or a cinematographer, Krediet’s vocation is to make and manifest the dreams of a genius come true in this world. As a place, Turtle Inn, as it stands... More

We stayed here for my 50th birthday and the experience did not disappoint. The room was spacious and well appointed, very comfortable and steps away from the water. The size of the resort is perfect -- big enough to have what you need but small enough to feel cozy. Feels like your own little village. The staff were incredibly friendly... More

Our family visited both Coppola Resorts in Belize. We reserved the Mountain Beach package for Spring break and Turtle Inn was the Beach portion. It is a small intimate, but family friendly resort. It was absolutely wonderful! I couldn't say enough great things about the resort, staff and food. There are wonderful activities, and excursion to explore. Don't miss the... More

I agree with some of the previous reviewers about this place. It is quite luxurious, but you are expected to pay for many extras which would be included at most other hotels - e.g. coffee in your room and bug spray (they even have the cheek to give you a 1/2 used can with tape over the top so they...

This was our second time back at Turtle Inn. The only difference was it was with our kids. Having been to Blancaneux prior to Turtle Inn on this trip, initially the first impression was that things felt a little bit more dated at Turtle Inn and things at the beach are just a bit more relaxed. However, the place was... More
