Hotel Las Tortugas was charming, clean, safe and in the absolute best location for our family and friends. Our group of 11 (two families plus good friends), loved our 6 night stay in the Hotel, at the most beautiful beach we have ever seen. Our timing (early November), meant that there were no crowds on the 3 mile long beach - many times we were the only people on the beach, as we walked/boggie boarded/surfed the incredibly wide beach.
The hotel is a bit worn and dated, but definitely clean, and very very relaxing. Their food was very good, and their service was also very good. Their beach side hammocks and turtle shaped pool were wonderful respites from the mid-day heat. If you are after nature and adventure in a truly Costa Rican simple style, this is the place. Each room is unique, and we stayed in two different styles, and found advantages and disadvantages in both. We did especially like our ocean-front room with a nice terrace. Even though the bedding was very worn, it was definitely clean and comfortable.
We hope to return soon - it was hard to leave this friendly, comfortable and beautiful place.
