Turtle Inn is a lovely, relaxing place to stay. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. There are two pools, which are small but nice, a beachfront bar, and three restaurants with very good food. Our room was very large and and filled with beautiful Indonesian furniture and wood carvings. Even the bathroom was large and well-appointed, and we had... More

My wife and I selected the Turtle Inn because of the great reviews on many travel sites, and because it appeared to us that the village of Placencia would offer opportunities to have a local experience when we wanted to venture out of the resort. We were not disappointed! This resort is absolutely one of the best we have ever... More

We moved to Turtle Inn after staying one night in a different Placencia hotel that we didn't like. We loved Turtle Inn. The staff was very attentive and helpful, from the moment we walked in. The grounds are beautiful and serene, and the rooms are spectacular. We stayed in a two bedroom villa, with a wonderful outdoor courtyard with shower,... More

We stayed in a private home while in Placencia, but got to enjoy Sunday night pizza (2 for 1) at the Turtle Inn which was fabulous and great Coppolia wine. The salads are organic and very good. Also had a wonderful lunch with pastas and an above average BLT. Prices are reasonable considering it is an upscale resort.

We stayed down the street at Chabil Mar but went to Turtle Inn twice for our "fancy" dinners - ie dinners where I wanted to wear one of the cute sundresses I packed. I have worked in the high-end resort industry so I was also eager to see the decor. Love the space here - rustic, subtle but refined and... More

If you're on the road in Belize and want to treat yourself, significant other, or family and friends to some place really special, don't overlook the Turtle Inn Placencia. We stopped in for lunch while exploring the Placencia peninsula and were blown away. We had driven past this place many times, read about it, but had never taken the opportunity... More

When reading this you have to understand, Turtle Inn is a spectacularly beautiful hotel right on the beach. The architecture is fabulous. The rooms are very simple and made of wood, which jives with the beach vibe well. The dining area and pool are beautiful as well. That being said, I don't think the hotel is worth the money for...

My wife and I stayed at the Turtle Inn for 8 days to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. We were looking for relaxation, a bit of excitement and luxury. We found ALL at the Turtle Inn. Every detail is carefully considered and perfectly executed. I cannot speak highly enough about the staff, from the General Manager Martin, to house and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Luxury and unspoiled beauty on a pristine white-sand beach.Turtle Inn is a true labor of love. Less than a year after Francis and Eleanor Coppola acquired this beachside refuge in 2001, it was swept out to sea by the forces of Hurricane Iris. Turning disaster into triumph, the Coppolas led a two-year reclamation project, creating a magnificent resort that is consistently ranked among the best in Central and South America.This 25-room seafront hideaway combines natural wonders with luxury style. Accommodations are in individual thatched cottages, decorated with handcrafted Balinese furnishings and naturally cooled by the ever-present sea breezes. Just steps beyond your private deck, the white-sand beach dissolves into the clear Caribbean ocean. In addition, the resort has two infinity swimming pools for enjoying the day. ... more   less
