This is our second stay at the resort. Service is where they excel; Eddie, the co-manager, was very flexible even getting up early with us for a quick birding stroll of the grounds. I could tell there was massive efforts to keep the resort environmentally conscious. The reef and animals looked just as lush as six years ago.

The personal touch was awesome. Coffee delivered every morning with a daily newsletter and the nightly turn down service with poem was lovely. The diving was the best. I wasn’t sure about doing backward rolls off the boat but after my first one it was a breeze. I loved that the dives were not rushed, as long as you had air and no deco time. I loved the outdoor shower. The pool/ bar area was nice and the game room was great for watching our daily dive videos. We always have a pirate party and birthday celebration on our trips and they were very accommodating and even joined in with our pirate theme. We loved it so much our large group of 22 have already booked our return trip May of 2024. I can’t wait to go back.

This is an amazing and unique place. It is beautiful and peaceful and a very special spot to get away to. The diving is wonderful. The reef remains healthy and the dive sites are minutes from the resort with never another boat in site. Surface intervals are always back on shore. We saw turtles, rays, eels, sharks, barracuda, jacks, permits, tarpon, drum, lobster, crabs, and numerous small creatures. Our dive guide, Marcel, is excellent at finding interesting things and makes sure to point them out. Harry the boat driver is attentive and very helpful making it possible to be safe and comfortable. The rooms are very comfortable with beautiful wood throughout and the private outdoor shower is the BEST!! The service is outstanding and the staff is warm and attentive to anything you may need.

This was hands down my favorite vacation to date. The staff went above and beyond and were so incredibly friendly, the food was amazing, the cocktails were delicious, and the diving was absolutely stunning. Our boat captain, Harry, and our divemaster, Brad, were outstanding. They took such great care of us, and we knew we were in the best hands. We saw so many sharks, eels, turtles, rays, and so much more. During the night dive, we saw octopus mating. There is not a single thing I could complain about. Oh, and their coffee is delicious too. Every little detail was perfect. We are already planning to come back!

Our room was cozy, clean and quiet; with enough room to spread out all of our gear. The diving was terrific and we were well matched with a group that never had problems with air consumption. The food was excellent and we were catered to and spoiled by Jessie, our personal server. They do not mention the Hobie Cats, but they are well maintained and a delight to sail around the island if you know how. We went for the SCUBA and it seems to get better with every visit. The entire staff obviously wants each guest to have a splendid vacation.

I spent 4 nights at Turneffe Island Resort (snorkel package) and my experience was amazing. The entire staff was so friendly. Luis is such knowledgeable snorkel guide and pointed out all the interesting marine life (that my novice eyes often missed), and educated the snorkel group on what we saw. He is an amazing free diver and would frequently dive down to find interesting things that were more hidden in the coral (crabs, lobsters, eels). The food is delicious and Jessie took good care of me. Overall, everything is so well thought out in terms of customer service and organized. I will add that TIR is a wonderful place to go if you are a solo traveler. The resort is not huge and most guests are like-minded in that they appreciate and love to be in the water, be it diving, snorkeling, or fishing. At the end of the day, everyone meets for happy hour appetizers/drinks before dinner at shared tables. As a result, it is easy to connect with other guests and I made some wonderful friends. I will definitely be going back!

This was a return visit to TIR and it was everything I'd remembered: attentive staff, remarkable location, friendly informative and competent SCUBA operation and, oh the sea life. Belize's Turneffe Atoll is a global treasure. I'm already planning trip #3.

Turneffe Island Resort is heaven on earth. It is our happy place. We first stayed there in 2016 and we have been coming back over and over again. We snorkel and fish. The snorkeling is amazing and the men in my family love the fishing. Everything about Turneffe is exceptional. The food is exceptional. The villas are beautiful. You often feel like you have the island to yourself. We snorkeled almost every day. We always set aside a day to just be bums by the pool and do nothing. Evenings at the outdoor bar are so fun, you meet other guests and share experiences. The people that work there are genuinely friendly and make you feel so at home (special shout out to Beans, Hendrey, Fidel and Jessie - everyone here is amazing but this trip we spent the most time with these guys). The island is serene, the snorkeling is exceptional but what we love most of all is that there are hardly any decisions to be made which for us is the ultimate in relaxation! We are already planning our next trip to Turneffe!

First time here and was blown away at the staff, food, accommodations, and overall island atmosphere. Really allows you time to unwind, relax and enjoy what it really means to "vacation". The staff has the customer experience perfected from the time they pick you up to drop off. Any thing and every thing you could think of while on your stay they have you covered.
