Our first visit to this resort, but our third to Turneffe. Absolutely splendid service, accommodations, and meals. Activities were perfect for us, i.e., snorkeling and fishing. We had a terrific and exciting excursion to Glover's Reef, too. Managers and staff were excellent, making us feel like friends, not clients. There were many small touches (like fresh coffee on your porch early mornings with tide and weather reports as well, an outdoor private shower, and fresh fruit juices all day, etc.) that put this place over the top.
My fishing guide, K.P., was the very best I've had in Belize. I learned more from him in 3 days than I have in 3 other trips to Turneffe. I've had 18 guides in the past, and K.P. is the best of them all. Kind, patient, enthusiastic, and an excellent teacher and communicator. This man has forgotten more about permit fishing than most guides ever know. Be sure to try the night fishing and early morning fishing, too. In spite of high winds and rough seas, he was able to put me on the fish constantly.
My wife really enjoyed Daniel and "Radio" on her snorkeling trips. They mixed up the routine, and showed us places and creatures we have never seen before.
Overall, a superb place. We are already planning our next trip!
