Turneffe Island Resort is in a class by itself. It is just fancy enough that one feels pampered, just rustic enough that one can relax and it has absolutely amazing diving as well as great food. Once we arrived on the resort, no dive, other than the Blue Hole and the two dives we did near the Blue Hole, were more than 8 minutes away from the resort in the boat. For someone who gets sea sick, this was a great perk. Our divemaster, Marcela, was extremely fun and cheerful while also being vigilant and competent. The sea life in the area is unparalleled. We saw Hawksbill turtles, eagle rays, octopus, basket stars, sharks and a host of other creatures. The coral is healthy, the sponges a rainbow of color. We did 15 dives in the 7 day trip and I would not have skipped one of them. If you love diving, Turneffe Island is your place. If you kids dive, they will love it here too.

Room Tip: It is noisier if you are closer to the pool/bar.

The diving and fishing here is spectacular. Wife and I were apprehensive we wouldn't have enough to do being stuck on an island but we were pleasantly wrong. We were scuba diving and the close proximity to the dive sites (many only 10 minutes away) allowed us to wake in the morning to coffee, go to breakfast, board boat for first dive, return to island for lunch, go on second/third dives, return to island to pool/bar and dinner. Repeat the next day. Awesome!

The staff caters to your every need and I can't speak highly enough of them. Book this resort, it will provide you with lifetime memories.

From the moment our bags were taken from our hands at the airport in Belize City, my work was done. Turneffe Island Resort's staff delivered everything to my room before I even reached the island, and once I set my dive gear on the front porch, I didn't need to touch it again for the week except when I was helped to put it on before diving. Our dive guide and boat captain made thing easy and fun with good briefings. Most dives were done in a single direction without having to return to the boat because the boat came to us.

Our spacious room was very well maintained, shiny clean and cool as a penguin's paradise (of course that was my choice on the thermostat, others might like to tune it up a bit). Coffee was delivered to the front patio every morning (tea was also available) and it was wonderful to enjoy it in our room while getting ready for a diving day.

Meals were served in the large dining area and were always fresh and delicious. Guests could enjoy a variety of breakfast options, a delicious noon meal and there were dinner options each evening. Lobster night was a big hit, bigger still when the wait staff circulated through the room offering "seconds" to anyone who wanted more lobster. I never left the table wishing there had been a bit more food available because portions were generous and deserts where incredible.

The poolside bar was a favorite spot after the dive day ended. Rae was always there with a smile and new my favorite drink all week long.

Room Tip: We stayed in a Deluxe (least expensive) room and it was spacious, clean, well appointed and COOL.

This was one of our top 10 vacations. The resort was beautiful, the accomodations were 5 star and very clean. Service was impeccable by the entire staff. The diving was really good.
Excellent food. I gained a couple of pounds. Would recommend to anyone looking for a great vacation.

Room Tip: The Villas are the nicest with the most space
