(We actually traveled end of Apr 2012-May 2012) but those dates weren't listed) My husband and I honeymooned in Turtle Inn and its sister property Blancaneaux Lodge. The property is stunning and we loved the attention shown in each space. I loved all of the gorgeous wood and repurposed art and artifacts present in our cabana. The screened-in porch was wonderful to sit out on at night and have a cocktail and talk about our day. I cannot say enough how wonderful we found the staff at the hotel. They learned our names, our likes and dislikes, and often anticipated our needs. This is what I expected from a boutique hotel and was worth every penny we paid for the extravagance. They were wonderful about helping us get downtown when we wanted to explore, set up our excursions when we wanted adventure and made sure we had a good time while we were on the property. This place is a bit pricey - but for a special occasion I'd say it is beyond worth it. I've stayed in some very nice hotels over the years but this was such a wonderful, unique experience and...maybe in a few years...we'd go back for another special occasion. We plan to return to Belize and Placencia specifically and fully intend to stop by for a meal. We enjoyed the food we had there and even when we brought our own fish the chefs were able to create wonderful dishes for us.
I loved this place and it definitely set a mark for what I want more vacations to look like - relaxed, unique and beautiful.
- 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
