We only came for dinner, but oh, it was a good one! The Rijsttafei presentation was truly impressive and the best we've had since Europe. The Mare is a lovely and comfortable setting. We arrived early and checked out the extensive vegetable garden. To our surprise, the gardener on sit offered us an extensive tour, including the chicken coop!

My wife and I were at Turtle Inn Jan 23-30, 2017 for a friends wedding. The resort and its staff were fantastic. The GM (Martin) was always around visiting with the guests and the resort staff seemed to know what we were thinking before we could ask the question! The Bar Manager at the Beach Bar (Fermin) and his team...

Overall great experience. The huts are clean spacious and easy to access. Outdoor shower is a invigorating and refreshing experience, The place is close to "town center" and they give you bicycles that make it super easy to get around,

We were staying in another resort in Placencia (what were we thinking?), and it was truly and remarkably bad. We went for a dinner at the Turtle Inn and it was if light and color came flooding back into our lives. We inquired at the front desk and there was availability, luckily there was a cancellation - and we immediately...

What a wonderful way to kick off our family trip to Belize. We are a family of 4 (2 adult "kids") and had a wonderful stay in the 2-bedroom beachfront villa (Villa 2). We had quite a journey from LA (layover in Houston, then in Belize City, and a 6-seater plane to Placencia Airport) and our arrival at Turtle Inn...

My wife and I just returned from a remarkable 6 day stay at Turtle Inn. While this is a luxury resort with prices to match, it actually represents tremendous value. The service/hospitality here is unequaled and should serve as a benchmark for any hotel in the world. The staff is not only friendly but responds immediately to requests. They even...

We had the best time at Turtle Inn and can't wait to go back. From Alfonzo (who should win Concierge Of The Year award for SURE!), to the fabulous beach captains, to Terryanne, the amazing spa staff, Ocho (the resident pup!) and to Jimmy & Ferman at the pool bar....we were so well taken care of. The rooms are huge...

My husband and I stayed at the Blancaneaux lodge and Turtle Inn for our honeymoon, followed by another hotel on Ambergis Caye. Both Coppola properties were amazing but the Turtle Inn was truly special and the perfect place to relax and unplug for a few days. Placencia was our favorite beach area in Belize. Our beachfront villa was beautiful, spacious,...

Turtle in was such a great experience! The staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The spa was so peaceful and serene. Accommodations were top notch! We loved that Turtle Inn supports the local humane society. Seeing "Ocho" around every day was the perfect touch to our stay!

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
