Beautiful and relaxing hotelPosted Sep 18, 2015
We really enjoyed our stay at Tortuga. The rooms were really comfortable and had a great view of the river from the lovely balconies with hammocks on them. The staff were very friendly and we really enjoyed the kayaking and turtle nesting trips which were very well organised, with great guides and small numbers of guests per guide. The pool and gardens were lovely and we enjoyed the restaurant with its resident iguana although we felt there could have been a greater choice of menu in the evening. I would definitely recommend it.

Perfect hotel in a lovely locationPosted Aug 25, 2015
Cons: The aircraft noise from the Airport across the river, especially at night.
Location: Turtle & Jungle tours..... the ones organised by the hotel are very good - possibly better than the ones from the town.
Family of 4 (with 2 kids) stayed in August. Excellent hotel. Lovely grounds - easy to see monkies, sloths, lizards, dart frogs etc etc Wonderful restaurant & reasonably priced. Tours organised by the hotel are good. Brilliant Pool.

Really interesting place with fabulous wildlife and friendly staff - make sure you wear insect repellent as I have more bites than I can count.

Probably the best place to stay in TortugueroPosted Jul 31, 2015 on Hotels
We stayed here for 2 nights in early July and had a wonderful stay. The hotel is well-maintained and perfectly located on the main waterway, across from the airstrip (particularly perfect if you're flying in/out of Tortuguero, which you should). They have excellent nature guides on staff and more than once while we were in the national park, we found other tours following behind us. Also, the billing for the tours is handled at & by the hotel. I would have expected that to be the norm, but when we checked in at the ranger station it became apparent that other hotels required guests to pay at the ranger station individually which appeared to hold things up significantly. Also Tortuga Lodge is the only lodge allowed to offer private night tours to see turtles nesting on the beach which is far superior to the mass waiting in the forest for a ranger signal and then entering the beach in groups of 10 to watch.

Best pool ever! Food was also deliciously gourmet! Only screens on windows however, so the sounds of the wildlife cannot be shut out!

Lovely hotel with great staff and location. Little touches like giving you a cold towel and cold drink on return from your excursions on the river.

Absolutely amazing hotel.Posted Apr 26, 2015
Pros: Location was absolutely amazing, room was very clean and surrounded by rainforest sounds.
Cons: Breakfast should be included.
Location: Animal and bird watching, jungle trails, swimming pool, kayaking, boat tour, night jungle walks.
This place is amazing, and me and my husband had a great time. We were collected from the airport which is a short boat ride just across the river, as we arrive very early the room was not ready, so we dropped our bags and went for a nature guided tour (a 3 hours boat tour). The guide was very knowledgeable and was able to spot a lot of wildlife. After that, we enjoyed the swimming pool which had a fantastic view and large iguanas walking in the near garden. We also explored the local trail, the receptionist provide us with repellent and rubber boots which was a nice touch. We managed to see monkeys, a lot of different birds, red frogs and many other species. We stayed only one night but we made the most of it. We highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to relax and enjoy the nature!
