In daytime, Las Tortugas is really easy/convenient to get to - it's located right off the beach @ Taco Star. The restaurant is on the second floor and has a nice... read more

I've eaten at Las Tortugas many times during my 5 month stay in Playa Grande. My VERY favorite was always to drop in for their famous apple pie a la mode!

We were a group of 6 staying at the hotel. It was so nice to have great food at a decent price just steps from our room. We loved the American breakfast. We also enjoyed the nachos, pork chops, and ice cream options. The spaghetti was a little dry, but overall good. The lady there has worked there over 20... More

Food was ok here, but we weren't super impressed with anything. Prices were inline with everywhere else in the area. Felt like they offered too much on the menu, but didn't really specialize in any of it.

It was so peaceful to eat in such a beautiful and peaceful setting, in the trees with the sound of ocean waves. Good food, good cause the owners are active in helping to save the endangered sea turtles

We stayed at the hotel and enjoyed many meals in the restaurant. Breakfast was awesome! My favorite meal was when they cooked up the Mahi Mahi we caught that day for dinner. Staff is very friendly, atmosphere is relaxing and dining is open air.

This is not a typical "hotel" eatery . Located on the second floor with nice views of the beach ( through the trees) with both inside and outside seating. The beer was ice cold and the service was very good. We enjoyed chicken quesadias and cheese quesadias as well as 2 imperial beers and an ice tea. Total price (... More
