This hotel is an oasis of calm just off the main streets in the resort. Very handily placed for the beach and for the local restaurants. We had a junior suite with a jacuzzi upstairs on the balcony - that was definitely worth it. We came back from a day on the beach and into the jacuzzi which is covered...

I loved this little, hidden gem. A boutique hotel in the heart of Playa, you pass right by if you're not paying attention. It's cute and very romantic. The large interior courtyard is styled around a winding pool; a quiet spot to relax after a day swimming at the beach. The hotel is affiliated with 3 beach clubs. We opted...

Perfect location, round the corner from the town and beach! Coco bongo is 30 seconds aways! Staff were lovely and very helpful. I would not advise the standard double room. There was only one window tucked away in the corner which meant no sunlight came through making the room feel very dingy and making us feel constantly very sleepy. May...

We needed a place to stay in Playa for a night. La Tortuga was the perfect place. Great room that was a swim up room and a short walk to the bar. We had the complimentary breakfast at the restaurant at the hotel and it was a very nice perk for staying at the hotel. The hotel is in a...

Truly beautiful hotel! Pool area is unbelievable, perfect location. Bad thing: our room was the smallest one we've ever been in. Only enough space for the bed to fit in, same with the bathroom. Staff is very kind and helpful!

Near to the city, but not far away from the beach either. The hotel has great cooperation with a few beach clubs, which gives you a good price. The people in the reception is really friendly, they are glad to help you with different trips.

My wife and I stayed there back in 2012 and we absolutely loved it!! We have stayed there 3 times. It's location is great!! It's just a short walk to the beach and we loved that we got a discount at Zenzi beach club which is another favorite spot of hours! If you are doing a couples vacation I highly...
