The Turtle Inn Belize is a luxury hotel by a beautiful white sand beach. It is owned by filmmaker Francis Coppola and Eleanor Coppola, who have made it into a haven for people seeking relaxation or adventure.
Luxury thatched cottages
The hotel has 25 thatched cottages situated just a short walk from the Caribbean Sea. This sublime accommodation boasts handcrafted Balinese furniture and private decks. Seaview cottages have a Japanese bath, a private walled garden and hand carved decor. The premier accommodation is the Francis Family Pavilion, which features three bedrooms, artwork selected by the Coppolas, and the services of a full-time butler.
Seafood meets world cuisine
Dishes at the Turtle Inn feature fresh seafood and produce from the hotel's organic garden. Eat at the beachfront Gauguin Grill for charcoal grilled lobster, jumbo shrimp and snapper.
The Mare Restaurant serves Italian food and twice weekly offers a Dutch Indonesian Rijsttafel dinner. Auntie Luba's kitchen has tempting rustic style dishes such as curried chicken, coconut shrimp, home baked lime pie and food cooked over a fire pit.
Taste wines from the Franci Ford Coppola Winery’s Diamond Collection and Inglenook estate in the Wine Cellar. Drinks are served at the poolside Fish Bar or the open-air Skip Bar. It's kids only at the Kid’s Gelato Bar.
Activities at the Turtle Inn Belize include scuba diving, swimming, snorkelling, fishing, paddle boarding, bicycling and the thrilling zip line ride. For something a little more relaxed, you can indulge in yoga sessions, sunset cruises and visits to the organic gardens.
There is a rich local environment to explore. Visit the beautiful Nim Li Punit Maya site and Blue Creek Cave, and the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary & Jaguar Preserve has the world’s only jaguar preserve and is home to over 80 jaguars and many monkeys.
The Turtle Inn Belize caters for lovers of unspoilt beauty and luxury, fine food, fine wine, exploration and adventure.

Find out what our clients have to say about their experiences
We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
