La Tortuga is a small boutique hotel it has got only 51 rooms. Perfect for adults only offers pure relaxation. The hotel is a good choice is you are looking for something right in the centre but still far away enough to hear anything from the local clubs, pubs. Very well located, it is about 5-10 minutes to the 5th... More

Nice hotel with pool close to pedestrian center with a very good italiano restaurant. A lot of tourists and shop in the city center and on the beach. A good stop before Cancun Airport. ............................................................................................................................

If you are a resort type, all inclusive, party all night traveler this is not the place for you (I'm not much for sharing my vacation with hundreds of people, that's not what I call relaxing) La Tortuga was BEAUTIFUL!! I'm not trying to sell you on it, it sells itself trust me. You could barely hear any construction from... More

La Tortuga is a "Charming Little Hotel right in the middle of all the "Action!" Located on 10th Street between 6th and 8th, this "Little Gem" is an "Oasis of Solitude and Charm!" There is major construction going on around this property on three of it's four sides with a 3+ Story Shopping Mall being built. The owners would not... More

I am a travel agent who has been to the Riviera Maya 42 times. I have friends in Playa del Carmen. La Tortuga is a lovely little oasis of a hotel in town. The rooms were nice and the staff was great and the grounds were beautiful and lush. Breakfast was a real plus. I would recommend this to anyone... More

La Tortuga is a great place to stay. It is centrally located in Playa and only a few blocks from the beach. Being on Av 10 is is much quieter than other location on 5th or the beach. The rooms are comfortable and quiet and the atmosphere is relaxing. The only noticable is from the attached restraunt sometimes in the... More

Cute and intimate, with a private feel in middle of a secret jungle. Pretty interesting design of the hotel's amenities. Sun lounge, sun sofa, sun deck at the landscaped pool, complete with a pool table and pool bar for fun. The food is amazing and exotic, very much recommended for all three meals. Access to three of the best beach... More

Nice hotel. Room was small. Light was not working, but is a nice place to stay with friendly staff. This hotel is outside of the busy 5th ave core but close to walk to. Construction project next door, but will be finished summer of 2015

Basic facilities but perfectly safe with friendly staff. Stay here for close proximity to 5th ave rather than hotel luxury. We had no problems with that. Breakfast is average but adequate. There are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby so fortunately you don't need to rely on the hotel.

Lovely small, friendly hotel. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and served up until 1pm. But then lunch was unavailable as it switched straight to the dinner menu. It would have been nice to have had a lunch option by the pool in the afternoon. Would definitely stay there again though.
