“Great vacation resort....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

We have just returned from a weeks stay in a gulf view studio (rooms 218,219 & 220) at the Tortuga Inn Resort and I am happy to report that it has not changed much from when we first stayed there 6 or 7 years ago! Nice sized room, especially for two people, jacuzzi tub for two in the bathroom and double showers, great pool, just a walk over the road to a great private beach with loungers, umbrellas etc... Good value, recommended....

Room Tip: The Gulf View Rooms (218,219,220) are, I think, the best, large,closest to reception, overlooking th...

We rented a two bedroom unit for a week. 4 adults and a 3 year old. Clean, friendly and a great cabana to sit and watch the gulf. Good location and excellent restaurants within walking distance. We will be back.

We stayed in a gulf view studio for a week. Great things:- Huge bathroom with jacuzzi tub, double walk in shower and two basins, Spacious walk in wardrobe and plenty of drawers. The whole studio was very clean and had lots of room to move around. Lots and lots of towels provided. The boat jetty at the bay end was great for dolphin watching, and one day we even saw a manatee at the end of the jetty which was amazing and made our holiday. Directly across the road from the amazing beach.
Things that could be improved - Wifi was really patchy and annoying, The room had a box TV, haven't seen one of those in a hotel room for years, coffee from the cafe was dire even by American standards, basically just brown water....the bed was very squeaky and pretty small.
Overall however we really enjoyed our holiday and these are just minor gripes.
AMI is beautiful and very relaxing. Ate at Blue Marlin (best food all week) Skinny's (great burger) Indian Spice (tasty) Omas (filling) Gulf Drive Cafe (great breakfasts but not so good for other stuff) Island Time (hit and miss).

We stayed at Tortuga at a busy time. We had no trouble getting chairs at the beach or at the pool. It was great not to pay to use them. The condo we stayed in was wonderful. It was a standard size and was plenty big for four adults. I would try the bigger one next time just for fun. We will return to this resort in the future.

My husband and I, our two children, and my mother stayed at the Tortuga in October. We had a great experience - plenty of space in the room for us all, full kitchen, large bathroom, pool and beach view. We loved having access to beach toys, umbrellas, towels, and chairs. It's such a pain to bring your own! Service during our stay was friendly and responsive. We plan to stay again, hopefully sooner rather than later!

I've stayed here so many times I've lost track! I come back because I can always count on the same great service, the same great view, and the same number of steps 'til my toes touch the cool white Gulf sand. The staff is always friendly and the grounds are always lovely. I love the little cafe where I get my morning latte' fix.

Room Tip: I prefer the Gulfview room as it offers a agreat view of the beach.

My husband and I wanted a beach vacation that would be fun for our 5 year old daughter, with activities close-by. Tortuga was perfect-the beach was right across the street and almost empty every day. The water was mild and gentle enough to let her run around without us. When we got tired of the beach we enjoyed the warm pool,. There were plenty of water toys and floats to borrow, and the environment was intimate enough that she was able to make friends with the other children at the resort. Our one-bedroom with kitchen was quiet and gorgeous-spacious and completely above our expectations; the kitchen and lanai were quite large. The service was impeccible. The grounds were beautiful. The location was nice as it's close to a great restaurant on the beach with live music, artsy towns as well as the Mote Aquarium. The highlight of our trip was the boat trip at the aquarium where our guide caught a large variety of sea creatures, taught us about them and let the kids hold them. There we only 2 negatives I can think of: the 2nd pool in the courtyard was freezing cold and in the shade; since there was a 2nd pool, this didn't affect us much. Also, the resort was located on a busy road which we had to cross to get to the beach. What we loved was that we could watch the sunrise outside our window, and in the evening we would walk to the beach to see the sunset.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 2nd floor facing the bay-although the parking lot was directly outside our lanai, t...
