About
Description
Luxury and unspoiled beauty on the Caribbean Sea. 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 More the forces of Hurricane Iris. Turning disaster into triumph, the Coppola's led a two-year reclamation project, creating a magnificent resort that is consistently ranked among the best in Central and South America.This 28-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 beach dissolves into the Caribbean Sea. In addition, the resort has two infinity swimming pools, a spa, dive shop and three restaurants. Less

Yes, the Coppola family’s wines are available to buy from their cellar at Turtle Inn. They also serve their own wines in the restaurants and they are rather nice. It’s a fabulous resort by the way.
