I don't write reviews but am compelled to call out this property as a true gem if considering Central America. Attentive staff, a true can do focus, superlative Belize setting, management's hands-on style and Coppola culture are a recipe for must visit. On a larger stage, the area is amazingly rich with natural resources and must see eco attractions as... More

We just love Turtle Inn... the setting, the villas, the staff, the excursions, the food ...perfection. They did a great job of building out a luxurious resort respectful of nature and environment. Will certainly visit again.

Having traveled all over the world, I would consider this to be a low-end resort. We have stayed in other resorts in tropical locations (Maldives, Bora Bora...) where we have had our own cottage. Turtle Inn is the only one without air conditioning. Due to the extreme humidity, our clothe, toiletries and luggage immediately smelled of mold. Additionally, because of... More

Dear Jack, I am truly sorry to hear the smallest of inhabitants of Belize made your stay uncomfortable. We certainly do all we can to minimize their presence but being where were are , in rainy season, in between the sea and mangroves- we simply share this location with them and in all honestly , in my 4 years here...

My husband and I just celebrated our 20th anniversary in Belize. We booked the mountain-beach package at the Coppola Resorts. We loved both hotels! Besides the spectacular properties, what really makes these hotels special are the staff. At both hotels we were greeted by friendly and helpful staff. Every day the concierge asked us if we'do like coffee or tea... More

Turtle Inn: The cabanas are beautiful and have everything you need, the beach is equally lovely and very well maintained - as are the other grounds. The food was fantastic and a broad variety is available throughout the week at the three different restaurants. If we could do it all over again, we wouldn't change anything. What really makes the...

We are a family of 5 that booked the Family Mountain and Beach package last Easter Break. We first went to Blancaneaux and then transferred to Turtle Inn. Overall, a magnificent experience. The staff was amazing to my kids, the property is beautiful, the food very good - it is a very special place. We asked that not every dinner... More

This is meant only for families and couples. I'd be bored (or lonely) if I went with single friends. Everything you need (excursions, scenery, locals) is there. We ordered a rum cocktail, and the manager climbed up a palm tree, cut off a coconut, bashed it open, & poured rum in it. Only issue: it's SO hot and the "air... More

To understand the majesty that is Turtle Inn, you must first understand it's location. Belize is a country about the size of Vermont with a population of less than 350,000. It is a vast expanse of land, mountains and coastline with limited infrastructure and development, few towns and many small communities spread out. The resort's town of Placencia is a... More

There is no place like this one. It's just... special. Amazing is a word that is overused in our vernacular. The Turtle Inn transcends what you'd expect from luxury. And even the term "luxury" isn't appropriate. Because there, you are family. And you are part of the country. The GM, Martin, is the perfect fit for this property. On our... More
