This was possibly the best experience I have ever had on a holiday. The staff was perfection they were all kind, courteous and always willing to go out of their way to make the experience better. I dove every day, and the dive staff were great. Helpful, thoughtful and clearly put safety first but fun was a very close second....

Turneffe Island Resort is a very nice resort. I would recommend it highly as a resort. The rooms are beautiful and clean. The food and service are excellent. The Resort has nice views and beautiful grounds, and the screened porches allow you to enjoy the beautiful setting without insects. The tiki bar was great for an après diving or fishing...

Just got back from 10 days at Turneffe Island Resort and could not have had a better time! The Island is remote and intimate with amazing staff, food and the best bartender, George. Beware his magic tricks and stiff drinks! My darling Diana and I felt like we were lost on a very well catered desert island. I dove some...

My wife and I just returned from a four-night stay at Turneffe Island Resort. This is the place to go in Belize for snorkeling, diving and fishing. Carlos and Fabian were great snorkel and fishing guides. I caught about 12 bonefish while flyfishing the flats. I am not certified but Allen and Maya (managers) went out of thier way so...

My friend and I are soon to embark on our fourth trip to Turneffe Island Resort (TIR) in December. I believe it's been a yearly event for the last three years. From the current reviews of TIR it would appear they are still providing superb service and value for your money. For starters, we have nothing even remotely negative to...

We have visit another resort off Belize since TIR and thoughwe rated it 4 stars we now realize that to be fair TIR is a 5 star resort based on the service and food preparation.

Just got back from "he Island". From day 1 at the airport, EVERTHING was as advertised. From connections for tours to getting to the Island to getting our diving equipment ready to go and even hot chocolate on the boat after the night night dive, every service was orchestrated to perfection. The dive and boat staff was superb. And, surprise...

Just returned from a 7-day dive trip to Turneffe Island Resort. What a fabulous time we had! Great food, diving, accomodations. We had a cabana which was awesome, about 40' from the shoreline. Three excellent meals a day plus fresh cookies and snacks throughout the day. The staff were very friendly and accomodating. The downsides were rediculously expensive alcohol costs...

I have made two trips to Turneffe Island Resort and look forward to visiting again. The photos on the hotel website do not do it justice. The island is beautiful. The rooms are incredible just open the doors and you have a beautiful ocean breeze. I especially love the morning coffee delivery. The outdoor shower is not to be missed.

Turneffe Island Resort is outstanding. I am always suspicious when I see a lot of 5 ratings on a location. How can it be that good all the time? Well, I agree with all the other 5 ratings that are here. Diving which is the reason we went was world class. We have dove all over Caribbean, Palau, Australia. This...
