We were very excited to venture to Plancencia Belize in the last week of July 2014. Knowing that we were headed down in the middle of the rainy season, we were very surprised when the timing proved to be no problem. Our hosts at Francis Coppala's luxury resort were outstanding from the moment we were met with cold, deeply scented, refreshing hand towels before we were even truly out of our car. From our gracious welcome to our very sad departure, the staff and the resort never failed to disappoint us. There is something truly wonderful about showering in your own private garden after a hard day of lounging around one of the 2 pools, lunching on the beach , swimming in the Caribbean, or my favorite, hanging out in your hammock under the palm tress. Coming home every day to fresh baked chocolate chip cookies stashed on your bungalow's screened in porch was delicious. The staff are truly 5 star. The resort is also truly 5 star. we will return in late spring or early summer to go swim with the whale sharks.
- 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
