We just came back from Turtle Inn and all I have to say is amazing!! The place is stunning, like a little piece of heaven on earth.

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

Dear Bauer Family- thank you for staying with us and taking time to review our property. It goes a long way and gives a great moral boost to the staff. It was a bit unfortunate the abundance of seaweed played a roll during your stay but some days it was like ' mopping with a running faucet". We therefor tried... More

My girlfriend and I love to travel. We just save up our money and go to wherever we want to see next. But, our last three trips have all been to Belize. And, two of them have been to Coppola's Turtle Inn in Placencia. If you haven't been you need to see it to believe it. It looks like they... More

The staff was great and unlike another resort (El Secreto) in San Pedro, the hotel was very accomodating and the resort did not rip us off. We really liked the beach bar and tours. The only downside is no A/C in the villas. If you like to sleep at 68 degrees Fahrenheit, then you may be a bit warm at... More

I found my experience here extremely disappointing. There are a number of plus points.The design of the resort is very good. The reception and main restaurant overlook the pool and have a wonderful view of the sea. Our cottage was beautifully designed and comfortable. The staff were delightful, friendly and attentive. Complimentary kayaks, bikes and shuttles into town. A wide... More

Hello Tim, thank you for pointing out your plus points experienced at Turtle Inn first and foremost -the title of your review does not reflect any of it however and it always hits me personally no matter how long one is in the business.

This review is for the Turtle Inn Dive Shop only. We came to Belize for the whale sharks and booked all our dives with Seahorse dive shop.
