“Great Beach Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

Our family recently returned to the Tortuga Beach resort for another great stay.
The property is clean,well maintained and well managed by a friendly and professional staff. The resort backs onto the bay and the Gulf beach is right across the street. Hotel pools are heated, clean and never crowded. The area is quiet at night and while offering a good selection of shops and restaurants for day/evening fun. Outdoor activity rentals are nearby and Tortuga is only a short drive to Sarasota or Bradenton proper.
But,who wants to leave the Tortuga??? Reservations already made for next yr.

My husband and I recently spent two nights at the Tortuga. Our room had a real "Caribbean" feel to it, and there was a small gate enclosed private patio with a small table and chairs. We loved that all we had to do was cross the street to a beautiful beach. We were happy we were able to take our dog there which was one of the reasons we chose this spot . My only complaint was there wasn't a good place to take her to do her "business". Not much green space. But, I guess it is difficult because of the location. Definitely a great place to stay, close to restaurants as well .

We recently visited the Tortuga Beach Resort for the first time. It is a beautiful property! The room and entire property was clean and well kept. The staff was very accommodating. Beach access is just across the street.
We have already recommended it to friends, and we will definitely be back!!!
We loved the entire area!

Spacious accommodations are very clean with a nice pool area and beautiful bay views. Excellent service and nice location to walk to local restaurants and shops. Beach area is directly across the street with a nice covered area and pristine sand.

Room Tip: We loved bayside views with nice patio area for morning breakfast.

This was our family's first stay at Tortuga…we fell in love with the island immediately. Just what we needed after a LONG winter up north! Our Garden room was clean, bright and spacious. Perfect for our family of 5. Unfortunately, its location in the middle of the resort did not provide much privacy as it was sandwiched between one of the pools on one side and the parking lot of the resort next door on the other side which is what the screened in porch overlooked. I was not able to enjoy my morning coffee on our porch with any special view or sound of the waves crashing ashore, just the noise from traffic, early morning landscaping work, and some barking dogs. No beach views to be had here! We were a little hesitant after booking to learn that Tortuga is a pet-friendly resort--we've never been fond of barking dogs especially on vacation when we're hoping for some quiet. There was a dog in a room close by that was quite noisy for long periods of times. This may not deter everyone, but we'd have to keep it under consideration if we were to return. Not all owners are considerate of other guests. The location of the inn was perfect for us--we were able to either hop on the free island trolley right in front or walk to all area attractions, restaurants, but most importantly the beach just across the street. Gorgeous! A highlight for sure! There are certainly no shortages of rentals on the island, although Tortuga seemed one of only a handful that did not require a 7 night minimum stay. We'd recommend this resort, but would want others to know of their pet policy and that it's not directly on the beach.

Room Tip: Ask which rooms get most light or are not directly by either pool if that's a concern.

We have stayed at the Tortuga Beach Resort for several years and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience each and every time. The staff is friendly, accommodating and always there to go above and beyond. The setting is ideal and depending on the room choice, you can enjoy vistas of the beach or bay with each setting having a pool or hot tub to relax.
The atomosphere is casual and down to earth and the location is convenient and within walking distance to many restaurants as well.

Room Tip: Make sure room has a view - partial or full during your stay

This was our second trip and we are booked for next year already. The thing that separates Tortuga from others is the staff. They bend over backwards to be sure you have everything you need. Last year we complained about our mattress, A brand new one was being installed when we got back from the beach. This year we were cooking dinner for friends. We were short on glasses and dinnerware. One call to the front desk and we had everything we needed. We also like the easy access to the beach where you can spend hours watching the birds. Parking is convenient. We really enjoy this hide a way.

Room Tip: Book the biggest room you can afford, it is worth it.
