Tortuga del Mar was just perfect for our week stay in Costa Rica. A friend and I enjoyed a first floor room which had two beds and also bunk beds, a kitchenette, plenty of storage and a nice patio. The room was very clean (cleaned daily) and had everything we needed. The gardens on the property are absolutely beautiful and... More

This small beachfront motel is a gem! It's owned & was built by, a European couple. The rooms are clean, comfortable, tastefully decorated. We stayed in 2 different upstairs rooms, both had vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, ceiling fans, air conditioning, mini kitchens, chairs outside on the balcony (they weren't that comfy, but great for drying toels/bathing suites). The rooms... More

It is a little gem of a place right on the beach where surf is legendary and the accommodation more so. It’s not a giant 5-star resort – it’s a small boutique hotel with limited rooms and a view that makes any traveler fall in love with Playa Hermosa. People who want to party and disturb others should definitely go... More

We went there and they did not allow visitors and we had some friends and they could not get un . Also at night we tried to go to the beach and the administrator was not polite. Also I asked for more blankets and We did not recieve the right Service.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It was my boyfriend's second time, and mine first. Clean place, great location, friendly staff. We had the best available room (oceanfront/ ocean view). The only problems were: 1) no coffee in the room, although there was a coffee machine. 2) uncomfortable sleeping arrangements. Very firm mattresses (we usually don't mind the normal... More

Beautiful, clean, quite place right on the beach, with excellent surf right out front. Tortuga Del Mar was exactly what we hoped it would be. Til, Lily and all the staff were awesome. Super friendly and full of useful information. From where to rent a car (Alamo in Jaco / no problems) to setting up a surf tour (Armel at... More

Beautiful, well maintained hotel directly on the beach. If you have any questions or need help making travel arrangements, Lilli is very helpful and welcoming. If you can afford it, the ocean view suite is large (with a kitchenette), spotless and has a lovely vista of the garden, pool and beach. We could sit on our veranda and watch the... More
