Craig & Karen Hayes were the perfect hosts and the staff was very friendly, helpful and knowledgable. Our guide, Willie has had a long and successful career guiding and it showed in his attention to our fishing needs and his experience. Both my friend, Dave and I managed to land permit which was one of our stated goals. The adventure,...

For me this was a long awaited trip that exceeded my expectations on all accounts. I took the combination package that allowed for both diving and fly-fishing and wasn't disappointed. Craig and Karen, the owners, have this place dialed in with super management and service. I'm going back next year.

Great fishing despite moderate to heavy winds. Wind kept the hungry bugs away, but bring DEET. Only limited rod rentals available, so bring what you need. Used up EP black and purple, but tarpon loved the EP orange as well. Limited rods for rent, so bring what you need, including sinking or intermediate line for tarpon. Flies are available for...

This was a fishing trip. We like this island/atoll destination because it is so well thought out and well managed! That's important when being so far from 'the mainland'. The guides are knowledgeable. They have quite a large fleet of boats that are well maintained.

My husband and I spent a week at Turneffe Flats; he fished and I snorkeled and birded. It was a wonderful time. The guides were excellent, the number of people was perfect, and the food and accommodations were great.

We went as a family and had a great time. Fly fishing was the driver for our choice and it was great with an exceptional guide. One adult son had never fly fished and came away successful and engaged. The diving and snorkeling was great. The service was personal, attentive and they made every effort to accomodate our requests. Our...

We stayed in the Reef Villa, three bedrooms and three bathrooms with a nice sitting area and a screened porch. Beautiful setting with kayaks pulled up on the beach in front of the villa, nice lounge chairs and beautiful views. Turneffee Flats is known for the fishing and scuba diving, we come for the snorkeling with our guide Abel. He...

I went to Turneffe Flats Lodge specifically to fly fish for Permit and it did not disappoint, with miles of flats and aqua marine waters. The lodge is a great place to get away from it all with excellent dive trips as well. A wonderful group of guides and staff, gracious owners, amongst beautiful simple surroundings. The lodge is incredibly...

From the moment we arrived we were treated so well. The lodge, staff, food, cabanas and fishing are all simply the best we have experienced. At the 6:15 cocktail time each day we loved sharing stories and pictures with other fisherpeople and divers. Everyone agreed this was a fantastic week

Turneffe Flats is a wonderful place. Although it is a world class and world renown fly fishing resort, it is also an awesome scuba diving resort with a wide variety of dive sites around the Turneffe Atoll. One of the special attractions to this resort for me was its remote location. It seems as if I was in the middle...

“Large rooms, double sinks, and walk in showers. AC in rooms usually from 4:30 pm to 8 am, another reason to wade the flat in front of the bungalows after boats are docked. No problem with filtered tap water or ice. Towels are available at relaxing pool. Rod racks on railing outside room. Check out the big barracuda and huge bonefish near the lighted dock at night.”

“Clean, well appointed, and spectacular view of the reef right outside our door. A slight tropical breeze kept the bugs off our terrace!”

“Keep in mind the AC is turned off during the day since they generate their own electricity and everyone is out on their adventures during the day. Don't believe them if they tell you there is a king size bed in your room.”
