We looked at this clean little place on our way up the coast as the boat to Nicaragua left from there. It appeared to be fairly new and well kept. It is right on the canal, across from the Sunrise Cafe (great eats), half way to the park entrance from the public dock. They have 10 rooms.
The Princessa group consists of 3 Tortuguero hotels, of which we stayed at two, but not this one. The other two are the Princessa del Mar which is on the beach a little north of the soccer field and the Cabinas Pricessa which is a little further south and about 4 houses off the ocean.
