“Large condo, great grounds, super-clean.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Stayed in a large 2 bed, 2 bath condo unit with another couple. Both rooms provided privacy and were very roomy. The large living room and kitchen were great as well. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and impeccably maintained. While initially the cost seemed a little pricey, when we split the cost with another couple it worked out better than two hotel rooms elsewhere. The bonus was the huge living room and kitchen. A good value overall. The beach side pavilion is great, too. Staff was friendly, and the booking, check-in & check-out process was smooth an efficient. We'll be back.

My wife and I went to celebrate our 21 anniversary, we got a small room that can be connected to the bigger room on the first floor where the fish tanks are, and everything went as expected, nice room, roomy bathroom, a little bit noisy AC and the clean service forgot to take care of the trash, but no complains overall. The parking area is very convenient (first floor of the back building) and close to our room. We got there early and they allow us to do an early check in… Big plus for this..!!! The beach area is very open, with chairs, umbrellas you can pick near the reception and towels. No comments about the hotel store, never went there for snacks, breakfast, luck or dinner. Good place overall, will repeat...

Room Tip: The luxury Suites with beach view should be very nice, but everuthiubg comes with a price.

Our family of four was delighted with our first-time stay at Tortuga. The little apartment was just right. I was able to do our own cooking which made it feel like home. We appreciated each day's room service...they even folded the pajamas that I had tossed on bed! I know that we tracked in a lot of sand and it couldn't have been easy to clean up after us! We enjoyed looking out over the courtyard & the children loved the fish pools & trying to catch a lizard. The beach access was great and it was very helpful to have beach umbrellas, chairs, towels and sand toys provided. We would certainly come again and have recommended Tortuga to others.

Room Tip: We chose a second floor corner room overlooking the pool & the palm courtyard/path. I would choo...

Our family stayed here for a wedding. The accommodations were very spacious, and clean. Our unit looked recently updated and was very stylish. It was the perfect fit for entertaining the family between wedding events. The private beach with chairs and beach towels meant we had everything we needed for a day at the beach. The optional second bedroom with fridge and additional bathroom was great for the teenager. We will definitely return.

We went during peek time for this area, 3 Adults and 2 dogs in our party, garden room, was plenty big enough and had everything we needed for our time here, beach is private and across a two lane road, where most cars will let you get across.

About dog friendly, the room is great for them, air condition and paddle fans, stone title floors, but the grounds have very little area for them to potty, short walk in either direction from the resort are neighborhoods for the dogs to go.

Room is quite if no one is using pool area, one of our rooms face the in door pool, and people were using it after the quite time and there voices echo. The other bedroom pool noise from the resort next door is loud at times.

Overall it is a very nice place to stay with a family and your pets, short walking distance to eateries, gift shops, tours on the gulf, beaches and 1/2 hour drive to downtown Bradenton or Sarasota areas.

Room Tip: You have place to stay on both sides of this property and people use the outdoor Pools and are loud...

My husband, two year old son, and I just stayed here this past weekend on a second floor 2BR 1bA unit. I was impressed by how clean it was. It was very quiet; we didn't ever hear any neighbors! They had a pack and play tucked away in the closet waiting for my son, which I was happy about since I had requested it upon reserving the room. It needs to be replaced; it looked very old, the center was quite saggy, and the side rails didn't snap into place very well. There is a TV in each bedroom and in the living room. There was even a small collection of books in the living room, which would be great for beach reading.

Our mattress was just as uncomfortable as previous reviewers have mentioned. I did not sleep very well either night, which is why I have to take off a point for my rating.

The location is excellent, very close to lots of restaurants and little shops. It is just across the street from the beach. We didn't take advantage of the beach here, though, because we were visiting friends who were staying in a house further north on the island.

We were quite happy with our stay, except for the mattress. It is not a luxurious, five star hotel, but it doesn't pretend to be. It is a clean, practical, family-friendly place that does not have a three night minimum stay, as most of the properties in the area do. I would recommend it to anyone.

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.
