In a way I believe karma is what creates all our experiences in life and so was the case when we found ourselves at Turtle Inn after an unpleasant adventure we had at another spot in Belize. My friend and I wanted to have an easy week in Belize enjoying swimming and nature. We couldn’t ask for more. Turtle Inn is near the village of Placencia optimally located on the beach.
From the very beginning speaking to Alfonso on the night reservations desk at 10pm local time trying to improve on our desperate case of being at the wrong place in Belize we felt welcomed. That feeling only improved in the days to follow. As soon as we arrived Alfonso was waiting for us at the entrance of the resort. Very quickly we found ourselves in the comfort of our casita with ocean view enjoying an afternoon drink courtesy of the resort. First day of our stay we met Martin, the general manager who gave us a tour of the premises and thereafter very courteously made sure that we had everything we needed. From the people who wished us good morning at breakfast, to the people who laid our lounge chairs on the beach or pool, to the people who brought us lunch anywhere we wished, to the people who serviced our rooms, the only comment we have – it was SUPERB. We never felt we were at some anonymous five-star hotel – on the contrary it was a very cozy, convivial atmosphere which never violated our privacy. An extra touch were the amazing massages that we had.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Luxury and unspoiled beauty on a pristine white-sand beach.Turtle Inn is a true labor of love. Less than a year after Francis and Eleanor Coppola acquired this beachside refuge in 2001, it was swept out to sea by the forces of Hurricane Iris. Turning disaster into triumph, the Coppolas led a two-year reclamation project, creating a magnificent resort that is consistently ranked among the best in Central and South America.This 25-room seafront hideaway combines natural wonders with luxury style. Accommodations are in individual thatched cottages, decorated with handcrafted Balinese furnishings and naturally cooled by the ever-present sea breezes. Just steps beyond your private deck, the white-sand beach dissolves into the clear Caribbean ocean. In addition, the resort has two infinity swimming pools for enjoying the day. ... more less
