The transfer from the Placencia airport to the resort was seamless and pleasant. We felt the warmth and graciousness of the Belizians from the moment we arrived. This extended to our stay at TTI.The staff could not have been more friendly, accommodating and customer service oriented. From Raylee who helped us coordinate our trip to TerriAnn our concierge, Civilla and... More

We came from La Lancha, Coppola Resorts really disappointing property near Tikal, so arriving at Turtle Inn was a great relief. We were met at the air strip and did the minute or so transfer to the resort. Staff are generally lovely and friendly and overall the service is pretty good. Martin the manager greeted us personally on arrival and... More

I just returned from four nights at the Turtle Inn with my four-year-old. Martin, the GM, is a great guy so I hate to leave negative comments, but it wasn’t a perfect stay for the money.

Turtle Inn was perfect for our honeymoon! We went with a garden cabana which was huge! Loved the outdoor shower. The staff is excellent and brought breakfast to us every morning. It was a great meal and we enjoyed it on the front porch each day. The food and drinks are of course pricey but delicious. The beach was small.... More

Congratulations once again from all of us ! Thank you for staying with us for this special occasion. I truly appreciate your comment on the comfortable temperature in the rooms.

FFC doesn't miss a trick. This resort is absolutely beautiful, the food delightful ( and home grown ), the service impeccable, & as I say above, the beach is arguably the nicest one south of the Mayan Riviera. Placencia is fun little town. Check out the ice cream at Tutti Frutti, but if you don't get there no worries -... More

This is paradise. Filled with beautiful ocean, cool breezes, the sweetest people and the most delicious food. The perfect place to hide-a-way. Nice little spa and gift shop. The seafood restaurant with beach dining is outstanding. Not one thing to complain about- simply perfect.

We did a package with this resort at the beach and the one in the highlands on a river in Belize. Both are similar in terms of high quality food and great friendly personable service.

My husband and I took a trip to Turtle Inn at the end of November. It was certainly the most relaxing holiday we have had for a long time. The weather was mostly sunny and hot with a few rainy days. The villas were spectacular and felt quite private. I really enjoyed taking breakfast in our room every morning. The... More

We enjoyed our holiday stay at Turtle Inn and its sister property Blacaneaux Lodge. The two bedroom family villa (V3) was pleasant with great private and shared space. The beach is small but well groomed each morning and one can walk relatively easily along the water to the larger beach in town. The staff are very pleasant and eager to... More
