If you're on the road in Belize and want to treat yourself, significant other, or family and friends to some place really special, don't overlook the Turtle Inn Placencia. We stopped in for lunch while exploring the Placencia peninsula and were blown away. We had driven past this place many times, read about it, but had never taken the opportunity to experience it. In addition to having lunch we toured around the resort.
What luxury and unspoiled beauty on a pristine white-sand beach. The Turtle Inn is tops. Totally hidden from the road, you're in awe once you walk inside then resort.This seafront hideaway combines natural wonders with luxury. Once there we realized it's not a hotel per se but a resort with many individual thatched roofed cottages, with each one decorated with handcrafted Belizean furnishings.The resort has two infinity swimming, and three restaurants.
We enjoyed the first rate service of the friendly and attentive staff. Our lunch was absolutely delicious and the presentation fantastic. It was also explained to us some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving in Belize can be experienced on a coral reef just offshore. There's also a dive shop that can accommodate both beginners and experienced divers. We feel the Turtle Inn is a perfect refuge for those seeking a truly relaxing and tranquil getaway, and also if you want to have an awesome lunch or dinner.
- 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
