This hotel was a pleasant surprise in the city center. It is perfectly located 3 blocks from the sea and a block from 5th Av the commercial street. It is surrounded by bars, restaurants and clubs if that is what you're looking for. I went for the BPM festival and it was perfect. Taxi's are available in the street and... More

Love the swim-up rooms and massage facilities, really close to everything in town. Nice restaurant attached and breakfast were great. Was close to a club so you could hear this in the evening but manageable.

Everyone was great at this hotel, from the second we got there: welcome cocktail, friendly reception staff, lovely poolside room. Nice location five minutes walk from the sea front. God inclusive breakfast as well. And Cesar is a total legend.

Great service. Friendly staff. Close to everything. Rooms were very nice. Especially loved the private rooftop 2nd floor level jacuzzi tub located within our room. Also enjoyed the view of the beautiful swimming pool from our rooms terrace. I most definitely would stay there again. What wonderful experience.

La Tortuga has become the hotel of choice when in La Playa. The location is prime to the beach and all walking points. Inside the hotel it is a zen like experience of complete calm. The staff is attentive to everyone's needs but could be a bit quicker. The atrium area is second to none with the flowing pool and... More

La Tortuga is a hotel with great location. Easy access to the best restaurants, bars and next to the Coco Bongo. All the staff are very friendly and attentive. The hotel is clean and well organized, and the pool is great.

We stayed in this hotel back in January and I must say we really enjoyed it. It is very well located next to all the shops and restaurants of the 5th avenue but it is like a nice retrieve at the same time, full of peace and quiet. The staff was very attentive to all of our needs, breakfast is... More
