Amazing! We stayed here for 5 nights in the beach front room and it was wonderful. The property was so beautiful and relaxing, half the time we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. Our room was great, comfortable, and very clean.. never even saw an ant! Lilli and Till were so welcoming and helpful the whole time...... More

My stay at Tortuga Del Mar in Playa Hermosa Puntarenas was great. Lilly and Till were wonderful from check in to check out, and in between. They helped me with several things and recommended some restaurants a walk away, by the end of the trip I was sad to say goodbye. The rooms were large, very clean, with a little... More

The owners are very friendly, the atmosphere is relaxed, the rooms are clean and light and airy with a great location right next to the beach. Lovely little restaurants on the beach and glorious black sand, without too many people, to enjoy. Great value for money and everything you need!

I really enjoyed my stay at Tortuga del Mar. It is clean and adorable and right on the beach. Gill and Lily are wonderful and made me feel at home. I hope to stay there again. The lack of TV adds to the peacefulness of the stay and the pool is lovely. There are cute places to eat and drink... More

I've staid here 4 times and I love it. The location, the architecture, the landscaping, the staff, the surf,....everything is great. If you want to take the wife or girlfriend, but you need a nice place to ditch them so you can go surfing, this is it. They can sit by the pool or even in the pool and watch... More
