Casa de Tortuga
Reviewed January 25, 2014

My husband and I recently traveled to Puerto Rico over the Christmas holiday and made the mistake of not having many hotels booked during this time (we usually wing it and it works out). We traveled all over Puerto Rico and this hotel was by far our favorite. Not only was the place spotless and close to all beaches and bar/restaurants, but also had a fabulous pool. What made this place so fantastic though was by far Caleb and Dehrah. As soon as we arrived they were attentive and helpful and also so much fun. We ended up having our best nights of our trips playing Bananagrams and drinking a couple beers with them. I could not recommend this hotel enough!

I would highly recommend Casa de Tortuga to budget minded travelers that are looking for a clean and comfortable place in a great location. I feel that Casa de Tortuga is a great value. It is in no way a five star resort, but it is perfect for a trip to Vieques where you will most likely spend most of your time away from the hotel exploring the beaches and other attractions. The location of this hotel is great. My wife and I enjoyed being able to walk from my room at night to the many bars and restaurants on the Malecon without having to worry about driving or finding a cab. There is a grocery store right next door and also a place to grab breakfast in the morning. The owners were very friendly and helpful. They provided me with beach towels, beach chairs and a small cooler to take to the beaches. I would definitely stay at Casa De Tortuga again.

Thank you! We have a really great time in Vieques and mostly due to the great owners. Linda and her husband are wonderful. They showed us around, answered each questions about restaurant, supermarket, bars, beaches, snorkeling, fish market, everything. We saw people living in other places come to ask Linda and her husband for advice. The room is decorated with lovely classical style, we can enjoy the pool and take fruit from their orchard. The star fruit are tasted so fresh. And it is cool to spend Christmas with Linda's family: Linda showed us around the island and rain forest for a whole afternoon by her Jeep, with Linda's husband, we jumped into the sea on Christmas night to celebrate this holiday, and we really appreciate the Christmas dinner--- the beef all the way from Colorado. To keep it simple, you will have more than expected enjoyable time here.

I'll keep it simple - the owners/hosts were wonderful, offered us drinks when we arrived and showed us around, answered our questions for recommendations, etc. They even let us take some fruit from their trees home with us! The place is located about as close as possible to the stuff in Esperanza, has parking, is nice and clean, and has a pool. Rooms were nice (had AC) and our section had a kitchen with a few things for simple cooking, too. Only downside was that it seemed to be next to a rooster farm or something, but it wasn't that big of a deal. Definitely recommended for anyone looking to stay in Esperanza.

Linda and John were top hosts. Very helpful and always open for our questions. Rooms and property in very good conditions. Located around the corner of the malecon with the restaurants. bakery and little shop in direct neighbourhood. The only thing you should have in mind are the rooster concerts early in the morning.

I traveled to Vieques for the first time in mid-September, and spent HOURS online researching a place to stay that was a great value, centrally located, near the beaches, near a grocery store and restaurants, and with a pool. That is EXACTLY what I found at Casa de Tortuga. The room was lovely and clean, with a small kitchen area with a table and a comfy queen-sized bed. There was also a BBQ and outdoor seating area that was at our disposal, and a lovely pool surrounded by tropical trees. The Malecon (the main street of Esperanza) was a short block away, as were the fun bars and restaurants where we met and made friends with local people.

Derah and Caleb could not have been more attentive hosts, helping us arrange a Bio Bay tour, answering all of our questions about the island, directing us to great beaches, helping us get taxis to and from the ferry, and generally being lovely, easy-going people. I am certain that my stay in Vieques would not have been the same if I had stayed at any other hotel. It truly was a magical experience, and I cannot recommend Casa de Tortuga highly enough.

Thanks again!
