We stayed for three nights in this hotel in Las Terrenas. It was kind of difficult to find (googlemaps gave wrong directions) but Mauricio was very helpful in guiding us there by the phone. If you don't have a local phone with you when you are going there though email or call ahead to get the right directions. The bungalow... More

Three couples and we spent three nights at La Tortuga. The lush garden setting with pool is a great place for R&R. We would spend a few hours there after breakfast before heading to beach. Rooms had a queen sized double bed and the 2 or 3 twins in an upstairs loft. Nicely decorated with a/c and ceiling fan. Dont... More

I own a hotel in Santo Domingo, I have spent most of my life in hotels and restaurants, and I'm very very picky. So you could say I'm the guest from hell, I notice all the little details. I went to Hotel La Tortuga to have dinner with some friends who were staying there. And I have to say the... More

We were looking for a small village in the DR away from those big resorts full of tourists afraid to venture out of the enormous hotels with no personality where you might as well be in a Marriott anywhere in the World. We certainly found both. Las Tortugas is a marvelous haven in las Terrenas, a fisherman’s village, where Isabelle... More

From the moment you enter the magical garden of La tortuga, the melodies of tiny singing frogs and crickets greet you. Director Isabelle is a nurturing presence throughout your stay, as well as an exceptionally excellent cuisine chef. Meals at La Tortuga are succulent, the best I have ever had apart from top big city chef restaurants--but for 1/3 of... More

We came with my husband and five year old daughter for five nights and our expectations were surpassed. The owners and staff were just lovely. They went out of their way to help us with beach towels, local attractions, renting a four wheeler (so fun!). And the bungalows were so nice, with a small second floor balcony for the kids... More

We had 3 nights at La Tortuga, and enjoyed every minute. Although everything about the hotel is pretty outdated, it is still nice and clean. Breakfast is the same every day: Bread, jam, scramled eggs, fresh fruit, fresh juice and coffee. All that we needed :) About 500 meters away you find a street with colorful wooden houses, which are... More

Good value for money overall. Great location, very close to the beach and a lot of nice restaurants and still far enough from the centre to make it a very peaceful refuge. We were there during the Easter weekend and the centre of Las Terrenas was really hectic with a lot of very(!) loud music. We could only hear the... More

Hotel La Tortuga is a pleasant, competitively priced place just a 7 minute walk from the Pueblo de los Pescadores, where there are tons of international dining options right on the ocean. The downside is that the walk is dark and poorly lit at night and makes you feel like you need to watch your surroundings as a tourist, not... More

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
