We just returned from a week long stay at this amazing resort. Our captain "Cap" is one of the most respected boat captains in the industry. Our dive master Pablo has 20 plus years of experience and an incredibly contagious personality for fun and relaxation. Martha who has been with the resort for over 15 years if I remember right...

Belize is certainly a different destination all round. The short flight from Miami makes it quite accessible from mainland USA but the visitors to Turneffe came from all over the world. There is an hour and a half boat ride from the port in Belize city and you have to wait until all the guest arriving that day have arrived... More

I was looking for the perfect place to hide from a chaotic world and I found it at Turneffe Flats. Turned 50 while I was there. Could not have found better company in a group of strangers I now call friends. The host (JAD) and his girlfriend (Dianna) were delightful. Engaging and capable, I believe JAD could make the best...

My wife and I went as part of a group and it was a nice experience. Don't plan on staying in Belize City to just roam around the city because the city is not a good place to hang out and women walking by themselves will be harassed by some of the local men. Arrive on Saturday by plan and... More

Staff on Island was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was delicious. We loved the pool and lodge, a real friendly environment. Wish the bandwidth on the internet connection had been a little better though.

I recently spent a week at Turneffe Flats and agree with everything in reviews by David C and mjfencer. The diving was excellent and actually logged one more dive than during a week live-aboard vacation in Belize 24 years ago!
