Pros: Location cannot be beat. You're right in the middle of all of the action, tons of restaurants, bars, boutiques and shops.
Cons: Due to its proximity to all of the action, it can get noisy especially in the rooms facing the street. Also, the pillows are too hard.
Location: Anything and everything you would like on vacation is within walking distance; restaurants, bars, clubs, shops....
La Tortuga Hotel is in an amazing location, within a 3 minute walk to the famous 5th Avenue. The hotel itself is a quaint boutique hotel with great staff who is helpful and friendly. That being said, there are some negatives to the hotel. If you are staying in one of the rooms facing the street ( we were in room 35), be prepared to hear street noise; especially from drunk revelers on Friday and Saturday nights. We woke up at 5:00 am on a Saturday by bunch of happy drunk people singing on top of their lungs. We did ask for a room change, but the staff could not accomodate us since the hotel was completely booked. I also found the pillows to be very hard and not too comfortable. The breakfast served downstairs was delicious and plenty. If you're driving, there is street parking available, so you should not have to pay to park your car in a lot. We highly recommend checking out Playa Paraiso, within 10 minute drive of the Tulum Ruins that was recommended to us by the hotel staff. Overall, we had a nice stay at La Tortuga even with the noise. I would recommend staying at this hotel for anyone visiting Playa del Carmen.

Great, convenient hotel!Posted Nov 18, 2013
This cute boutique hotel is right off 5th ave where all the restaurants, shops, bars are. if you're aiming for a non-touristy/crowded spot, then i wouldnt recommend it. We booked this hotel on a whim and it ended up being perfect for us because we wanted to head down to the beach conveniently with being able to grab a late dinner if needed. the only cons were- our bathroom wasnt in the best shape (mirrors were a bit dirty and toilet bowl was cracked)- but def still usable! Another thing- dont swim in the pool. i watched the cleaner scrub the pool surround and throw it back in the water- gross

The servíce was excellent. There was construction in the building adjacent to out room and the noise was nauseatingly loud. As soon as we told the front desk they quickly and happily arranged a room at the other side of the small hotel. In fact they allowed us to move to/ see 3 different options until we were content :) the bar is very quiet so it's really mostly a relaxation hotel. The pool day/night is contantly beautiful andakes you forget how small the place is.

Perfect Hotel at an awesome location in Playa!Posted Sep 12, 2013
Pros: Everything. The Location, the staff, the hotel itself was clean, great size rooms and even had a pool!
Location: 5-10mins walk to the beach, right off 5th avenue (shopping), LOTS of close restaurants, close to bus terminal and ferry to cozumel!
La Tortuga Hotel is definitely the kind of hotel I would return to next time I am in Playa & recommend to friends! It is located in prime position near 5th avenue, the beach, clubs and great local restaurants. What more could you want! The hotel staff and reception are all very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself has a great pool, room service, rooms are very clean and great size, beds are comfortable, no noise from the surrounding clubs, wifi included in the lobby and most rooms. The included breakfast was also great!!! Our stay overall was perfect and we had no complaints. The air con also worked very well & the staff also had great suggesstions about what to do and various tours offerred. All this at a very reasonable price per night! Will be back!

Very Small but CutePosted Aug 25, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel is in the mids of the city but very close to everything, the outside will initially scare you a bit but then you walk within its outter walls and you find a beautiful little oasis inside. Make sure everything works in the rooms and if not, ask and they always give you a better room. Don't hesitate to ask for help from the hotel staff they will help you and advice you with anything you may need. Very nice people and setvice. MUST Visit xcaret and tulum and coba amd chichen-itza and Cozumel while at playa (especially the beaches of cozumel)....oh and I garantee you will need atleast a day per each of these attractions to enjoy them fully.
