Excellent hotel, the staff were really friendly and the location is perfect. To waking up in the morning and looking out of the window at the fantastic see views, you can't beat it. The food was excellent and there's have a great swimming pool.

Right at the beach, staff is very nice and helpful. Make sure to have dinner in the restaurant at one of the tables at the beach and try the curry: it's one of the best I ever had. Room is very outdated and small but clean, the air conditioning works and the bed is comfi.

This is the first of two reviews of Tartaruga. Please read the second one "pretty ok" too. Stayed here 1 night aug/sep in a standard family room. It was dark, basic, old-fashion and the beds took up all the space, and when not having a terrace/balcony, there where no place to be if the weather was bad. The room was... More

we read great reviews of this place and hence chose to come here since I wanted a property which was on the beach.
