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

The experience at Tortuga Del Mar was unmatched. Lilli and Til really went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect!! They recommended a great restaurant that we frequented several times while there (Bowies). The rooms were clean and very nice!!! I would stay here again in a heartbeat!!!!

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

Jaco Area is not the best , but Till an his hotel made the best experience for us though. Beautiful room, and great talking. It is a small hotel with pool , hamocks, and gardens and just on the beach.
