We stayed at the Tortuga Lodge, and it's excellent. It deserves all the high ratings. The service was wonderful, and the food very good. I also liked that they didn't assign us to a group for touring, eating, etc. like a lot of the other lodges do. I even commented on a dish that I liked, and they gave me a recipe. When we left, they gave us an extensive survey asking for all the good and bad comments, who went out of their way for us, etc. They really want you to have a special experience, and we did. I would love to stay there again. Our food was served to us at the table; they have a great chef and the restaurant is right along the water. They even surprised us with a picnic by the river on our boat ride in. I don't think they do that all the time, but we thought it was amazing. They had wine, fresh fruit juices, and all kinds of thoughtful things. It's a neat spot. When we left, our guide escorted us to the airport and found two more turtles for us on the beach while we were waiting for our flight. Their guides are great. I'd highly recommend Tortuga Lodge.
