We spent four nights at this lovely, accommodating resort in a 2 bedroom villa. Service and amenities were excellent. The concierge Javier and the rest of the front desk staff were gracious and helpful. We took two scuba diving tours with the staff at the onsite marina, and our divemaster Doran and the rest of the boat crew were all simply wonderful. The barrier reef is really unspoiled and we got to see nurse sharks, grouper, barracuda, sea turtles and an amazing array of coral. Ate dinner at a couple local restaurants, both of which were very good, and got a free shuttle to and from the town by the hotel. Be sure NOT to miss the Tutti Frutti gelato store. Soooooo good! The only downside is that the beach is a little sparse and the sand offshore has a lot of icky sea grass or something. Better to look at than swim in, but the pools are both quite comfortable and not crowded due to the small size of the resort.
Another wonderful stay
This was our second stay at Turtle Inn and this one was even better than the last. We stayed the full week this time and there was plenty to keep us occupied. Definite highlights include: a charter out of the dive shop for island hopping and snorkeling - saw turtles, nurse sharks and eagle rays - complete w/ picnic; a group snorkel to silk caye and several dinners on the beach. We stayed in the Francis Family Pavilion which was an idyllic spot to spend a week. Right on the beach, with a pool and a long table for family dinners, it was accessible to everything but also private and secluded. Johnny, our Butler for the week, made the trip extra special. He made everything easy, planned special surprises for us, set up a beachfront banquet for us complete w flowers and generally anticipated our every desire from morning to night. We couldn’t have been looked after better. He and all of the Turtle Inn staff were such a pleasure. We look forward to returning next year and repeating the whole experience.
Wow, what a great hotel
This hotel has lovely hugecottages or multi bedroom villas facing the sea with two pools, three restaurants and a very willing,helpful.efficient staff in all departments. The food was uniformly good and beautifully presented. The rooms were in traditional style with covered and protected porches outside the traditional structure. Very well run to achieve such perfect stay arcs and consistency, we could not identify any flaws.this covers restaurants, cleaning staff, gardeners, activity , barmen , towels and subbed caters. All really good
The authentic beauty of the thatched villa should, and the green foliage on the beach is very special. All the staff make caring for guests personal and know your name. The evening jungle hike guided by Mark and Sugar was incredible. They were so good. The food was very good without a long wait. All the staff are dressed professionally, clean and very attentive to your needs. Rooms were cleaned very well in the mornings. Martin does a great job of caring for this place as if his own. We enjoyed no TVs. The private outdoor showers were awesome. We have traveled all over, we will be returning next year to the Turtle Inn
Eco friendly charming place to stay
My husband, myself our daughter and her partner had a delightful 8 night stay at this charming hotel. We were in a 2 room villa on the beach for our first 3 nights which I couldn’t recommend more. Unfortunately it was booked and we moved just behind for the remaining 5 nights. The rooms were great. Comfortable bedrooms and a lovely shared living area. The only difference was the natural light and obviously the ocean view. We couldn’t fault anything. The staff were each and everyone of them spectacular and all were so charming, helpful and nothing was ever too much trouble. We had 3 excursions.. 1. Snorkelling.. the best trip we have ever been on. 45 minutes with Edward diving down to show us the fish etc bbq lunch on the beach before our return. Definitely do this trip. 2. A full day fly fishing with a guide. My husband couldn’t have been more thrilled with his day. One of the best he has ever had and he fishes! 3. Diving my daughter and her boyfriend had a fantastic day learning the ropes and going in a 40ft dive. The food is pretty good. Service excellent we are in all 3 restaurants and had no complaints. Lunch was often in the beach bar. Placencia is a bike ride away with great restaurants we particularly liked Rumfish and Vino. All in all a wonderful stay in a charming eco friendly hotel.
