The resort is incredible! It's quiet, small and intimate with impeccable service. When we stayed during the second week of December the place was less than 50% occupied...which made it very private. The beach is small but then there are only a couple dozen rooms and we always had a nice private area to sit on the beach. We staying... More

My husband and I went to the Turtle Inn for our honeymoon in April. We found the property to be beautiful and the service wonderful. We were fortunate to be in Belize during the whale shark season and had the great fortune to see 4 whale sharks on our snorkelling trip. The food was perfect for us because I have... More

As far as I am concerned Turtle Inn is the Ritz of Belize! The hotel is absolutely lovely and awe inspiring. I am an amature photographer and loved all the unique doors from Bali that are all over the property, in the main hotel, in every room and even the private garden areas of each cabana. I had a grand... More

You're not going to find much better accommodation that Turtle Inn in the area. The rooms and landscaping were immaculate decorated and maintained with an Indonesia and Bali theme. Everything was well maintained. Note that there is no AC but the constant breeze and in-room fan was adequate. If you don't like humid places, then this place is not for... More

We were recently treated to a week-long stay at the Turtle Inn. First, you must realize that the hotel is pricey as is its restaurant. If you have no problem with that, you'll have a fine time. We stayed in the Chinese Matrimonial Suite, and it was fantastic. The room surpassed its expectations. There is a huge screened-in porch and... More

I hate having to give 4 stars not 5 because the actual hotel is spectacular; it’s like something from a film set. The staff are friendly and welcoming on the most part and the food is wonderful- you have to try the home made pizzas- they are to die for. The downsides are that the ocean although it looks beautiful... More

Ah Turtle Inn. If only you lived up to your website hype.... Turtle Inn is beautiful and much care was taken in appointing the grounds and rooms, but that's where the care stopped. We stayed for only one evening as a special treat on our last night of our Honeymoon in Belize. (We had rented a home the week earlier... More

We reached Turtle Inn after Blancaneaux Lodge and La Lancha. It was very peaceful. The staff were excellent and the other guest extremely friendly. It seems to attract that kind of crowd. We had a cabana on the beachfront. I would definitely recommend these. Although the sea itself is not worth getting into. The food was wonderful. However, as with... More

We were looking for a unique resort to celebrate our 30th anniversary. When we stumbled across the Blancaneaux web site, we fell in love after the first web page. We booked 3 nights at Blancaneaux followed by 3 nights at Turtle inn. We read a few negatives in other reviews, like it's too expensive and the bugs were terrible. Well,... More

We have just returned from a seven night stay at the Turtle Inn and a three night stay at the sister resort Blancaneaux Lodge. After many all inclusive trips to Mexico, Dominican Republic and Hawaii we felt we needed a change and when we saw the website for Francis Ford Coppolla's resorts we said "how cool is this" and quickly...
