For $10 pp we had a spacious, basic room, with a lovely sea/garden view. The pool was a great added bonus. And the fact they have free water to refill your bottles was a massive selling point for us, as water on the island is 1000 per bottle ($2), and in that heat you go through at least 3 bottles...

Probabely the cheapest place to stay in Tortuguero and one with the best view! Located directly on the Carribean beach, the cabines are not the cleanest and newest, but for this price definitely acceptable. A public kitchen and tables with chairs for taking breakfast included! Towels are included as well, private bath and wc, but no lockers!

I ate dinner here one night and they forgot to return my card. The next day, they used my card without my consent to withdraw nearly $100! When I called them to complain, they said that it was simply a "mistake".

Although I haven't eaten there for a couple of years, the restaurant is open air with a small bar. When I ate there, the food was good but the mattress on the bed in the room I stayed in killed my back. The Caribe waves were crashing on the very edge of the property. There is a swimming pool which... More

I visited with three friends, and we all had a pretty horrible experience. First, I ordered a fruit batido without sugar, and one friend ordered a regular lemonade. Mine was delicious, but his "lemonade" was ice water with lemons (including seeds) squeezed into it, and no sugar. The same friend who ordered lemonade ordered the same plate as me, rice... More

My boyfriend's good came first and my came way after he was finished. She didnt even check on us at all! and... More

I stayed at the Princessa by the Sea for 8 days recently, I met the owners who were very nice to me. This was the peace I was looking for. The grounds were full of fruit trees, f lowers, Iguanas were everywhere. The pool was inviting during the evening on the hot days. The Caribe was rolling and it rained... More

I had two lunches there. The restaurant has an open space and it is facing the Atlantic, thus it has an everlasting breeze. This detail might sound negligible, but it get so hot in Tortuguero during lunch times its impossible to eat anywhere else. The food is good but not amazing and its not cheap. Make sure to have a...
