This was the third of the Francis Ford Coppola resort we stayed at. Upon our arrival we were greeted and treated with great respect. We were upgraded to a two bedroom villa, right on the beach. I cannot say enough good things about this place, it seems like you are on a separate piece of paradise. Everyone greets you by your first name, they bring you hot coffee and tea to your room every morning. At night when it would rain they would roll down the canvases that protect your room. No windows, just screens, but everything is very private. The beach is cleaned daily from sea weed. In previous reviews we read that the beach was not fun and that there was a lot of sea grass and nothing to see, our experience was so different, sure it isn't the crystal blue water, but the sea life is abundance. The star fish of so many colors, and live coral heads everywhere with purple and orange sea fans. It really is so relaxing at this resort and we have two children ages 12 and 14 and evcen they loved it. There were bikes you could ride to town on at no extra charge, you just had to have them back by 5. Truly a very nice and relaxing place to stay. Even our kids loved it.
- 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
