Turtle Inn

Location: Between the Garifuna settlement of Seine Bight and the Creole fishing village of Placencia at the tip of a narrow 26-mile long sandy peninsula.

Rooms: 25 rooms in individual 1 & 2 bedroom thatched cottages.

Facilities: Restaurant, bar, spa, 2 infinity pools and dive shop.

Activities: Scuba diving, snorkelling, fishing, swimming, sunset cruise, bicycling, paddle boarding, zip lining and organic farm visit.

Children: Children are welcome.

Our Opinion: This property is possibly the jewel in the crown of the three Francis Ford Coppola properties in Belize and Guatemala. Very picturesque thatched cottages decorated exquisitely with Asian furnishings and textiles. It is important to note though that there is no air conditioning and the cottages are serviced by ceiling fans only. It is also worth noting that the beach line here has small waves lapping the shore and is not tranquil blue waters, therefore there is sometimes sea grass visible.
