This was a very nice place, just a few minutes from the beach. Nice, quite atmosphere...a little paradise tucked away from the hustle/bustle of the main street. The food here is very good and even better drinks! The best rum punch I have had in the DR. If we go back to the DR and to Las Terrenas, we would... More

Stayed at La Tortuga for 4 nights at the beginning of March. Our hosts Maurizio & Isabel were very kind and informative. They speak several languages - English was not their best but Maurizio is better than he thinks and it was not an issue for us. We may have been the only English couple their during our 4 day...

This was the third year in a row that Marie and I have spent with Maurizio and the crew at La Tortuga. Each time seems to better than the last. Two of the young women have moved on but Josephina is still running things, Maurizio will attest to this, and this yea she was joined by Maria and Wendy. Maria... More

My family just returned from Las Terranas and have only great things to say about Hotel La Tortuga. Maurizio, the owner, was very kind and always helpful. This hotel offers an authentic experience. The rooms/apartments are nestled in among beautiful trees and flowers. The hotel atmosphere is very peaceful. Staff were always willing to help quickly when asked (for pool... More

Myself and three of my good friends stayed at La Tortuga in early January and had a wonderful time. The apartment we stayed in was very nicely decorated and had fans, a safe, and a mini fridge, and it was the PERFECT distance to all of the attractions in LT.

We planned our trip to the Dominican Republic for January 7-14, 2014. We booked a reservation with this place because of the location and the reviews they received. Due to the massive winter storm in the Eastern US, our flight was cancelled, with no way to make it to the Dominican Republic until three days after our scheduled arrival date.... More

We are 2 women who speak english only (a challenge in this town), who could not have been happier with our choice to stay at La Tortuga. Maurizio and Isabel are terrific, and despite the language barrier (you won't have one if you speak French, Spanish or Italian) they provided delicious meals and arranged all our tours. Rooms all have... More

I found this hotel in my travel guide book : 75 USD per night for 2 people The price is ok for the value. I really enjoyed the place : garden, restaurant, swimming and bugalows. It is a small tropical paradise. The room was big enough. Double bed at the first level. 3 single beds at the first floor (mezzanine)... More

The place was heart warming and cozy. The people were very nice, and they went out of their way to make us feel at home. I loved this place, and I am going back next year.we were a large group and everyone felt right at home.

Isabel and the team here are amazing. We stayed for 3 nights in the off season (mid may) and were the only people on the property. We chose this property based on the TA reviews and they were right. The hotel is clean and cute. We stayed in #2, there were 3 of us, so it was perfect with a... More
