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

Once we landed in Placencia, it was just a quick 3-minute one-road drive to the Inn. Carlos, from Turtle Inn, picked us up and brought us into a lounge area of the Mare Restaurant to finish our check-in process. Like most resort hotels by the equator, the check-in process does not happen at a counter. You are ushered to a... More

We came her for dinner and were wanted to stay. The restaurant staff took the children from both families (5) and set them up with snacks, pop corn, drinks with silent movies playing. So cool. Came back 2 hours later after a spectacular dinner on the beach, and they were playing guitar and board games. Our food was so good... More

We were a 5 minute walk to the Turtle Inn in Placencia! What a great little place! The Laughing Fish Bar which was beachfront was awesome - great food and wonderful drinks. Edwin is a wonderful bartender, server and person! Instead of pretzels and peanuts, in the afternoons, there would be strips of roasted raw coconut served with honey on... More

Have just returned from a fantastic trip to this hotel. Amazing!!!! This property is set on a white sandy beach and surpassed our expectations. As soon as the wheels of our small plane touched down on the runway of Placencia Airport I knew we were going to experience something special. We were met by wonderful staff who furnished us with...
