We stayed down the street at Chabil Mar but went to Turtle Inn twice for our "fancy" dinners - ie dinners where I wanted to wear one of the cute sundresses I packed.
I have worked in the high-end resort industry so I was also eager to see the decor. Love the space here - rustic, subtle but refined and stylish all the same. The food was outstanding. I had red snapper and we took advantage of pizza night on Sundays (buy 1 get the second for free).
The second visit my husband and I shared two pasta dishes - gnocchi and eggplant parm. Very very good - on par with some of the better Italian spots in NYC.
Note - TI has a vegetarian menu but we didn't realize this until our second visit. Be sure to request it if one of you is a veggie. Also note that part of the gratuity - 10% - is included.
- 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
