I would have to stay that our trip to Turneffe Island Lodge was pretty great. We went with another couple and well, the four of us don't need much outside stimulation to have a good time which was good because this is a pretty quiet island. There were only about 12 other guests and not everyone is there to be sociable - many people are really there to dive and fish. So if you are looking for a good time it will be hit or miss. Turneffe Island is all about diving, fishing, and relaxing. The worker staff was somewhat engaging. I don't think they are supposed to mingle with the guests much but they were fun and we got a volleyball team together one day.
We mainly chose Turneffe Island Lodge because we wanted to go somewhere relaxing AND dive. And we definitey got what we had hoped for. The diving was phenomenal and as other reviews have mentioned it is great that you are literally 5 minutes away from most dives so you can come back from the first dive of the day and take a nap and eat lunch before you go out again. I agree with previous reviews that the divemasters seemed knowledgeable but quiet.
The food at Turneffe was better than we could have imagined and everything made from scratch. I bought their cookbook from the gift shop before I left!
The rooms were great and you must get the cabana on the beach! The room was clean and spacious. We never used the shower inside - always the one outside. It was GREAT!
The management staff consisted of two couples. The women were extremely friendly with all of the guests but the guys needed some prodding to engage with people and have a good time. One of the gentlemen did not engage much at all and was very stoic. The bartendar was great.
Great resort for a diving couple......
