The lodge provided a perfect retreat for a relaxing vacation. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The food is always good and includes regular vegetarian options. The staff are always friendly and professional. The grounds are well cared for and beautiful. It is so much fun to watch the monkeys and the variety of birds while walking the grounds....

We signed up for 3 days 2 nights.... It was awful service!! The website promised a tour of a working banana plantation.... If you consider pulling over on the side of the road and the "guide" stating a few facts a tour, then so be it. Guide was very unwilling to answer questions for the entire three days. First morning...

The other reviews have said it all. This provided us with our most memorable stay in a tour of CR. It is a brilliant place to stay in an amazing location. Meals were served en masse and were fine. A nice touch was tea, coffee and water on hand 24/24.

This lodge was paradise on earth! It was amazing to stay between the jungle and the beach. We were welcomed to the lodge with delicious tropical juice cocktails and while walking to our room (after being there just a few minutes) were greeted by a baby monkey on its mama's back just above us in the trees. Magical! We took...

The lodge was immaculate. The food was fantastic. The transportation and guide were awesome. The staff were some of the friendliest and engaging people ever. The ambiance and location where the ocean meets the rain forest made for a perfect balance of harmony, relaxation and education. All round 100% satisfaction!!!

If you are looking for a remote location to unplug and unwind, then this is the place. We were greeted at our hotel by our guide Bryan - who is amazing!! We boarded the bus from San Jose and it takes about 3 hours, you stop halfway for breakfast and then arrive at the port to board a boat. The...

We had a great time at Turtle Beach Lodge in January 2017. The pick-up from our hotel was seamless, and Daniel (Danny) our guide was very professional and personable. We enjoyed having everything handled for us. We had travelled around Costa Rica for two weeks prior to heading to the lodge, and we found it really restful and peaceful there....

We had a pick up arranged to go from Arenal to Tortugero via RideCR. The pickup was at 6:50 am. I checked with Anywhere.com ( our trip coordinator) about this trip before the pickup. Anywhere.com sent me the 3 days package schedule for the Tortuguero Turtle Lodge. My mistake was to think that it was our schedule. Actually, it was...

I am very sorry for your bad experience but anywhere.com is a separate company and did not work with us. We had nothing to do with the reservations and do not deserve a bad rating! Please revise the rating or delete it, it was not our fault. Thanks, Tom

For a 3 star hotel, this is an impressive place with a lovely community feel. Away from the American-dominated west coast, this is perfect for nature seekers and the guides including Marvin, Daniel and Jonathan made us feel at home. Marvin was our guide and he just made the trip for us. Promising that we would feel like a family...

My wife & I visited the Turtle Beach Lodge during the December holiday season for the 4th time recently and it never disappoints. The boat ride via the town of Tortuguero, the wonderful wildlife, the simple but tasty meals and the great staff all combine to make this lodge our favourite place to visit in Costa Rica. Howler & spider...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The area of Tortuguero is rightfully called The Amazon of Costa Rica because access is only by boat on Jungle Rivers. Turtle Beach Lodge, 5 miles north of the town of Tortuguero, is a secluded resort spanning 175 acres with miles of jungle trails, a meandering private canal, and a half mile of beach adjoining still more isolated beaches. The lodge accommodates approximately 80 guests; assisted by a well trained staff and guides who ease you into an exciting jungle experience. Stay in the beautifully landscaped cabinas, swim in our turtle shaped pool, relax in the adjacent shady hammock hut with food and drink from the restaurant and bar. ... more   less
