“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Amazing! We stayed here for 5 nights in the beach front room and it was wonderful. The property was so beautiful and relaxing, half the time we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. Our room was great, comfortable, and very clean.. never even saw an ant! Lilli and Till were so welcoming and helpful the whole time... we really couldn't have asked for a better stay. Six days just wasn't long enough.. CANT WAIT to come back!!

My stay at Tortuga Del Mar in Playa Hermosa Puntarenas was great. Lilly and Till were wonderful from check in to check out, and in between. They helped me with several things and recommended some restaurants a walk away, by the end of the trip I was sad to say goodbye. The rooms were large, very clean, with a little kitchen area with a sink, microwave, and fridge. Rooms were cleaned daily by 2 super nice women that placed flowers on the bed. The grounds were heavenly,flowers everywhere, peaceful and quiet. If your looking for a place for R&R this is it, away from the hustle and bustle of Jaco, but not far for a night out. You have your choice of hammocks, a tabled sitting area, hammocks on the beach, lovely wooden loungers outside on your patio or in the pool area. And it's Right on the black sand beach. The pool was warm and still refreshing after a hot day. I'd definitely recommend it and hope to take my family back there someday soon.

Thanks Lilly and Till.

Room Tip: First floor room was quiet and had a nice little patio with 2 chairs and a lounger.

The owners are very friendly, the atmosphere is relaxed, the rooms are clean and light and airy with a great location right next to the beach. Lovely little restaurants on the beach and glorious black sand, without too many people, to enjoy.
Great value for money and everything you need!

I really enjoyed my stay at Tortuga del Mar. It is clean and adorable and right on the beach. Gill and Lily are wonderful and made me feel at home. I hope to stay there again. The lack of TV adds to the peacefulness of the stay and the pool is lovely. There are cute places to eat and drink that you can walk to.

This place is amazing!! Not only is it set in a beautiful location, the people who own/run the place are a couple of the best people we've ever met! Its nestled in the perfect spot for awesome sunsets and surf!! The rooms are very comfy and in the mornings the Macaws make a fly over from the mountains and it was my favorite thing to wake up to! Overall this place is definitely a must stay if your visiting Playa Hermosa! We will definitely be going back there to stay for our next trip! Pura Vida!!

Room Tip: Every room is nice.
