“Quite and clean with an old school Florida feel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012 via mobile

Great hotel with a variety of room options. I would recommend the 2 and 3 bedroom suites in the back half of the resort. The front half of the resort is a bit older and in need of some updates but still great to stay in.

The cell service is very bad at the resort. The wifi could use some major improvements, but that's my only real complaint.

The Tortuga Inn is perfect for a romantic getaway or a vacation with the family. There are many accommodation options. Our "room" was a gorgeous, spacious, well-appointed apartment, which was wonderfully well-priced, as well. The beach location is perfect. I love, love, love this little inn!

Celebrated our 19th anniversary (the 2nd here at Tortuga) in September. Off season provides a nice quiet experience. Our Dogchild always with us and one of the many reasons we love Tortuga. The weather was rainy but we had a couple of good days. Alot of standing water around the resort which you had to walk through to get to the room. No way around it. They did the best they could to remove it. We stayed in the Palm Court again in a studio, love the tropical feel with the private patios. Plenty of room and again took advantage of the full kitchen and grills. Ate in most nights to keep costs down. New check in area looked great with the granite countertop. Didn't try the new restaurant. Loved walking down to the Gulf Drive Cafe for breakfast on the patio while dolphin watching. Then walking the beach back to the resort. Spent as much time on the beach as we could with the rain. Excited to see they plan to build a new pergola on the beach. We love this place and will be back as many times as we can afford. THANKS GUYS!!

Room Tip: Can't go wrong with the first floor Palm Court North or South. The South has alot of adjoining r...

We arrived very late and had one or two problems with our apartment but when we told the reception in the morning they couldn't have been more helpful and moved us straight away. Had a wonderful view of the gulf.
Staff were very helpful with suggestions of what to do and where to eat.

Room Tip: We moved from a middle to end apartment. Much better view and quieter.

We stayed here a year ago and absolutely loved it. There was one incident where it got a bit loud across the hall but otherwise we had no trouble. The view to the Gulf was breathtaking, the rooms were decorated beautifully and I highly recommend the enormous shower with two heads. All around fabulous. We hoped to go again next week but it was booked so we are going somewhere else. Highly recommended! Enjoy! The beach access is directly across the street and the inn is close to local dining establishments.

For our first stay on this island, we loved the "old Florida" feel of Anna Maria Island (Key West for grownups), and Tortuga Inn provided the perfect spot to enjoy the island. The office staff was so helpful and friendly - from choosing a room while booking the reservation over the phone to mapping out restaurants, shops, beaches and bike trails once we arrived. The atmosphere is very relaxing. Small French cafe right on the property sells great coffee to start the day. Our queen room overlooking the front parking lot was cute and clean with a nicely updated luxury bath. Our room was near the pool, which thankfully shuts down at 10 p.m. for quiet hours. Great access to private beach, right across the street. Rental bikes were delivered to us - a fun way to see the island. Highly recommend Tortuga.

The day we were getting married was exciting and spontanious. Lisa Bean at Tortuga offered to perform our wedding ceremony. The garden area near the pool was a perfect spot for our vows. Photos by the bay and at the beach to follow. Sounds wonderful,right?? Well, we never expected this story! We drove to the Tortuga, where we were to be married.....it rained! Even harder as we got out of the car. The staff welcomed us with open arms and towels to dry us off. Reschedule the wedding? No way! Through the expertise of Lisa and support of Tortuga staff, we were married in THE GIFT SHOP of the Tortuga Beach Resort! What a wonderful experience! The ceremony will always be remembered as special because of the staff at Tortuga and we look forward to returning in the future.
