This was our second trip to Playa. First was eight years ago for our wedding but we remembered this little hotel our friends had stayed at and decided to stay al La Tortuga this trip. From check in to departure the staff could not have been friendlier or more accommodating. Rooms were not large (we had a swim up room), but we don't spend too much time there. Swimming, courtyard and lounge are were enclosed and a nic e area to relax after long day at beach or on 5th Ave. We only ate breakfast at hotel and the food was delicious (was included). Can't speak to the spa, but it looked nice.

My husband and I just returned from an amazing 3night stay at La Tortuga. We were "wow"ed by Claudia the moment she greeted us-she immediately helped us set up a local tour and answered all of the many questions we had. Alberto and Fidel also introduced themselves immediately and provided amazing service and professionalism for us during our entire stay. After mentioning to Fidel that my husband would be celebrating a birthday during our last day, we were greeted on his birthday with specially concocted cocktails and every inch of our room was decorated with balloons, flower petals, chocolate strawberries and champagne! Our breakfasts at La Bistro were delicious with great service provided by Santiago! I do hope we can return next year....I'm already looking forward to it!

The quality of service was unbelievable. The staff was so attentive...on a first name basis and the food was always excellent. Just had to make a suggestion and they were always happy to accommodate. Our best hotel and personal staff ever! And, only one block from 5th Ave. and two to the beach. Quiet, respectful and the highest recommendation I could give a hotel!

A beautiful oasis in the center of Playa. Perfect location, close to the beaches, the restaurants and the shops, yet off the main strip, which ensures quietness and serenity.
Service was perfect, personable and tasteful. It was my boyfriends' b-day and they surprised us with a room full of balloons, chocolate covered fruit and a bottle of champagne. Flower petals were everywhere!. El bistro prepared a dinner table for us on the roof-private, with our own music. Upon returning to the room after dinner, we found creme brulee waiting for us! Can't say enough about this place. Thank you, La Tortuga!

My wife and I travel quite a lot. We have stayed at very expensive hotels to hostels. This place was perfect. Great location, clean, comfortable, beautiful pool, very friendly staff, great breakfast. I would highly recommend it to friends and family.

Oh, and they make a great mojito! (2 for 1 Happy Hour)
