6/10 Good

Not that great at all
I wish is was more obvious to everyones eyes that theres NO AC in the units . It was hot as hell . Everyday we had to call and also ask to make our rooms. Broken stone by the pool but seems like untill someone will actually cut his feet nothing will be done. Inside the room getting into the shower its just a hazard.

Our first time to Belize and fortunate to have enjoyed it at the Turtle Inn. Truly can’t say enough about the staff, the facilities, and the overall experience! They go above and beyond to try to make your trip what you want it to be whether it’s expeditions or just sitting by the pools. Martin , the manager, really sets the tone with his staff from top to bottom it’s excellence ! Not to mention the resort’s dog Chip! Staff greets you by name and makes every attempt to create a welcoming atmosphere. Bravo! A plus plus plus

What travel dreams are made of...
Wow! First timers visiting Belize (my sister and me) and won't be our last. Turtle Inn captured our hearts. We felt safe, valued, and relaxed! As frequent travelers (family is in the airline industry) we know good lodging when we experience it! Never have I extended a stay before and well, now I have! We cherished every single day at this resort. The staff were so friendly and kind. The food was great! We ended up doing several extras such as massages, snorkeling, and the sunset jungle hike!! So many wonderful memories were made here. We want to visit again by the end of 2021!! I would say my best advice for someone thinking about booking, just do it. Note, you do NOT need long pants or long sleeve anything! We were toasty (and from TX). Humidity is a thing so embrace the natural look! One note, we moved villas the last night. We were closer to the ocean but still tucked away and wish we had stayed at our original spot by the pool. We had much cooler temps in the room at night by the pool surprisingly. We also asked for extra room fans which helped! Turtle Inn is my new favorite spot. Truly a magical place.

Simply beautiful cabins with wooden shutters, no glass and (well maintained) bug screens. No AC, just celling fans and a through-breeze, which was enough to keep us cool and keep my footprint guilt in check. The private outdoor and indoor shower options were a nice touch, as was the large Japanese style bath.

6/10 Good

Too many sand flies or mosquitoes. Room does not have air conditioning and it gets hot. Bed bugs on the couch and veranda furniture. I am still itching 48 hours after leaving. Access to bathroom has a divider that if you forget in the middle of the night you will get hurt. Furniture and layout is very nice. Don't take the room behind the sea food restaurant. All the smell of the cooking will come into your room. Cabin 17 - avoid it.

Accommodations were clean, very comfortable and lovely. Beds were yummy and the outdoor shower was a little piece of heaven. Javier, Raul, Chef Jullian, Mark, Francis, Jimmy, Rocie, Wendy and so many more made sure that our every need was handled flawlessly and with a great deal of charm, caring and always smile!
