“Couldn't ask for anywhere better.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2013

I can't say much that hasn't been said already. John is fantastic, and he runs a great hotel. The rooms area big, clean, and have a lot more amenities than you would expect. A small grocery store next door, the malecon is just a block away, but set back enough that it's quiet as a mouse. There's even a pool in back. I can't wait to return.

Room Tip: If you need a car, ask John if you can rent his. It's old, but a lot cheaper than the rental car...

My wife and I stayed here for four nights - perfect choice for us. We loved Vieques and Esperanza and are so happy we chose Casa de Tortuga. The location just a block from the main strip was excellent. We stayed in casita number 4 on the second level - very clean and modern. Loved the kitchenette with coffee maker, microwave, sink and fridge. We had no problems with hot water whatsoever. John and Marilyn were very friendly and gracious hosts and always available when we needed them. Can't recommend enough! Stay in Esperanza and stay at Casa de Tortuga!
PS - we heard the roosters as well, but they'd probably be hard to avoid in Esperanza. And there were some sweet neighborhood dogs that hung out at Tortuga because of all the love they get there - Ginger and Scooby.

We visited Vieques during Valentine's day weekend for a friends wedding and stayed at Casa de Tortgua. This is a awesome place to stay while visiting Vieques, its very clean (I'm a clean freak), walking distance to the malecon and above all the customer service is GREAT.

Casa de Tortuga is a great place for the vacationer looking for a place to stay that is close to everything, and who doesn’t need a chocolate on their pillow every night. My husband and I love Vieques and have been to the island three times, staying at Casa de Tortuga twice. In reality you can walk to almost everything. We rented a car so that we could access more beaches. You can’t beat the price! The bed is comfy, the room VERY clean, air-conditioning, quiet (except the roosters and well you can’t really stop them from crowing), fridge/microwave, and did I mention air-conditioning. John and Marilyn make you feel welcome and are very knowledgeable of the island. They were always happy to help us in any way. We love the nightlife of Esperanza and love the food even more!!! Casa de Tortuga is not the fanciest but sure is perfect to us!

Room Tip: We stayed in Casita # 3. I liked it because it was on the second floor.

Really impressed with the room interior. Modern and clean. No tv, but we didn't need one on the island. Good location in Esperanza, close to the main strip with restaurants/bars. Walking distance to beaches. Good value.

Being stationed on Roosevelt Roads and Vieques Island in the early 80's my Navy Seabee buddie and I decided to re-visit the islands and chose Casa de Tortuga. The casa was wonderful. John and Michele were very friendly and made our stay relaxing and very special. We had our own rooms and bathrooms in the upstairs casa and was very clean,comfortable,accomendating. It had a docking station and speakers so we can play our favorite tunes. Bathrooms were clean (yes there is a lack of hot water) but a small inconvience when your on a small island.Bedrooms were open,large and comfy.The pool area is awesome as we drank our favorite beers. It's a short walk to the main street which is nice so we can "get away" but yet a short walk to where it's happening. I highly recommend Casa de Tortuga and if you happen to stay tell John and Michele David and Mike (Navy Seabee form the 80's) say hello. I'll be back someday...for sure!

Room Tip: Upstairs casa with two bedrooms with bathrooms.

Nice outdoor patio next to our upstairs suite. Very small living room and kitchen. Beds were comfy, but hot water was iffy and sink/shower fixtures were loose. The place was clean, but the dogs and roosters and folks at the bar made it hard to sleep. The pool area was very nice, with good chairs and clean water. The manager and his wife were very friendly. There is no ocean view, but it is close and safe to walk to everything on the Malecon.
