This place is fantastic. The lodge is a great way to see the jungle without giving up on the comforts of a great hotel. When we needed to leave CR because of covid 19 the staff helped us by arranging transportation immediately.

Hotel's Favorite
We stayed 2 nights at the end of December 2019, and our visit to Tortuga Lodge was a real highlight of our 2 week tour of Costa Rica. The staff are friendly, the food is excellent and it was a real privilege to experience the wonderful wildlife with the help of some very knowledgeable local guides. You are in the jungle here, so expect to be hot & humid and be woken at sunrise by the sounds of nature. This is a good thing! A wonderful experience

This is such a beautiful resort! It's clean and they have several trails that you can walk. Free boat ride to the main town. Staff are friendly and food/drinks are delicious. The pool and hammocks are relaxing and enjoyable after a long day. Your surrounded by nature. The rooms are spacious and very clean, we are a family of four and the 2 teenage kids had a bed of their own while we slept on a king.

A beautiful place to stay for a couple of nights, friendly and knowledgeable staff with lovely accommodation. The food was a little hit and miss although breakfast was pretty standard and sufficient. Very clean throughout.
