“Loved it, great value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2006

We just came back from a 3 night stay at Tortuga del Sol.
I was more than pleased. The room was very confortable, clean and full of amenities. The resort was very clean and beatifuly landscaped. The hosts treated us like old friends. The location was unbeatable, close to downtown PSP and close to several bars. I loved it! and will defenitly come back.

Just returned from a two night stay at the Tortuga del Sol and couldn't be more pleased with my experience. This intimate PS hideaway is everything that it promised on their website. I stayed in the Pueblo Studio and the room was wonderful. Complete with a nice furnished mini kitchen area, a very comfy queen size bed and a generous amount of towels. The room and the premises are spotless. The pool and Jacuzzi area are sunny with thick cushions on all the chaises. The owners Rick and Robert are perfect hosts. Oh, and the breakfast was an assortment of cereals, bagels, muffins, fresh fruit, juices, coffee, an actual breakfast! These two haven't scrimped one bit on the little details including light dimmers in the rooms and a nice, big TV and a VCR player.

This is a very romantic spot and perfect for singes and couples. I'll definitely return and tell my friends about this spot of paradise.

We have stayed at Tortuga del Sol three times over the last few years and are always upset when we have to leave. Each time the owners have updated or installed something new to make our stay more enjoyable. It has a beautiful pool and jaccuzi area surrounded by huge palms. It's conveniently located in Palm Springs but just off the beaten path as to be quiet and relaxing. The owners are unbelievably accomodating and do everything they can to make you as comfortable as possible. Tortuga is a must-stay for any gay traveler who wants to relax and unwind the lap of luxury.

Stayed many times at the Tortuga Del Sol. Small, Intimate and Friendly. Located in a neighborhood away from traffic noise and with great mountain views. The Hosts will go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Expanded continential breakfast can be served in your room or by the pool. This is a clothing optional gay mens resort. Hotel also features a well equiped exercise room.
