My husband and I spent five nights here and five nights at a companion property, Blancaneux Lodge. If you do this trip, five nights at each location is too long; I would recommend four at Blancaneux and three here. The tent cabins are lovely and the staff is all really terrific. We had an Indonesian dinner one night, which was a highlight. Downsides are biting insects which a local told us were sand fleas, the absolute lack of air conditioning anywhere, and no fitness facilities. It would be a good idea to install perhaps a lounge that had air conditioning or a small fitness room with air, as it was quite hot when we were there and the only place we could get any relief was an ATM lobby at the local bank. The food at the inn and also in Placencia was excellent.
- 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
