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

Dear Erica, I'm delighted to hear of the many highlights of your stay and glad that you communicated directly with us during your time at Turtle Inn by any of your disappointments and took the time to review us with such detail. In my 20 year hospitality career history, I must say I've only been described by guests as genuine,... 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...

While we liked our beach front villa, my husband and I were expecting a lot more given what we paid to stay here. The beach was a let down - tons of sea grass, and very small. The food was extremely overpriced and mediocre - so many more interesting and affordable options in the village of Placencia (Rumfish, Secret Garden).... More

Turtle Inn was a great choice. It absolutely is a piece of Paradise. Our bungalow was right at the beach. Spacious, wonderful layout, and an amazing view right out onto the water. It offered all the conveniences one could hope for. There are various restaurants within the resort, each of them offers a different cuisine. My favourite was Auntie Luba's... More

We were very excited to venture to Plancencia Belize in the last week of July 2014. Knowing that we were headed down in the middle of the rainy season, we were very surprised when the timing proved to be no problem. Our hosts at Francis Coppala's luxury resort were outstanding from the moment we were met with cold, deeply scented,... More

Two bedroom villa on the sea was lovely. We chartered a plane in and out which was very easy and quick. The staff is lovely and will bring chairs in front of your villa if you choose to enjoy it all steps from your villa. The pool is adequate with a separate adult pool. Fun little beach bar that had...

Coppola knows his way around luxury and peaceful relaxation combined. This all villas property was the best treasure I saw, which begets your romance, family or individual traveler lifestyle. Nestled right along the pristine Caribbean sandy beach, and situated close to the town's center, this gorgeous property seems to have it all. The staff are impeccable, the cuisines & drinks... More

For my three-week stay in Placencia, based on reviews and local / expat reports, the best dining experience came down to choice between three candidates : Rumfish, Turtle Inn, Secret Garden. Turtle Inn did let down its own ambitions with pizzas that were heavy on dough and cheese, fish that was not exciting, yet with great vegetables. If you live... More
