We just completed a two night stay at Casa de Tortoga. Amazing little gem of a place to stay. Inexpensive and extremely clean. We arrived on the island very early (9am) and arrived at the guest house and were able to check in right away. Dara and Caleb were great hosts. Anytime we had questions they were around to assist or just a quick phone call away. If you are an early riser you will love being greeted every am by the roosters next door. Beach towels, beach chairs and coolers are available to use. This location is just a short walk to the main strip where all the restaurants are located. The pool was not operational during our visit so that was disappointing to not be able to use - owners advised of an electrical issue. You'll want to pick up a rental car for your stay to explore the island. Amazing little place to stay.

We stayed in Vieques 2 1/2 weeks we spent our 1st week here at Casa de Tortuga. We were in Casita #4. This was a perfect place! Great pool, location was right around the corner from the Malecon. Caleb and Dehrah were very great hosts. If we needed anything, all we had to do was ask. I enjoyed meeting them and talking with them. I would recommend this place to anyone. Pool nice and warm. Grounds are beautiful. We would no doubt come back to stay here. Thanks Caleb and Dehrah for your hospitality. Price was excellent. If you want your room cleaned or clean towels, all you have to do is ask. Upon check-in Dehrah told us she would have our room cleaned when ever we wanted, to just let her know. We didn't because we only showered and slept there. We just asked for more towels half way of our stay. You wont 't be sorry you booked this place.

Room Tip: They are all good rooms. Yes, there are roosters that crow next door. But your not in Kansas anymore...

We fully enjoyed our 4-night stay at Casa de Tortuga. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the pool area was our favorite place to hang out at the end of the day. Be aware that there is no room service; you can get clean towels but your room won't be cleaned during your stay.
We were able to walk to all the restaurants in Esperanza. We also found a little bakery, next to a grocery story were we got our breakfasts and food items to take to the beach (when you walk out of the hotel, make a left and at the end of the block make another left).
We've been going to Vieques for many years and we all agreed that this is one of the most affordable and comfortable places to stay in the south coast of Vieques.

My husband and I recently traveled to Puerto Rico over the Christmas holiday and made the mistake of not having many hotels booked during this time (we usually wing it and it works out). We traveled all over Puerto Rico and this hotel was by far our favorite. Not only was the place spotless and close to all beaches and bar/restaurants, but also had a fabulous pool. What made this place so fantastic though was by far Caleb and Dehrah. As soon as we arrived they were attentive and helpful and also so much fun. We ended up having our best nights of our trips playing Bananagrams and drinking a couple beers with them. I could not recommend this hotel enough!

I would highly recommend Casa de Tortuga to budget minded travelers that are looking for a clean and comfortable place in a great location. I feel that Casa de Tortuga is a great value. It is in no way a five star resort, but it is perfect for a trip to Vieques where you will most likely spend most of your time away from the hotel exploring the beaches and other attractions. The location of this hotel is great. My wife and I enjoyed being able to walk from my room at night to the many bars and restaurants on the Malecon without having to worry about driving or finding a cab. There is a grocery store right next door and also a place to grab breakfast in the morning. The owners were very friendly and helpful. They provided me with beach towels, beach chairs and a small cooler to take to the beaches. I would definitely stay at Casa De Tortuga again.

Thank you! We have a really great time in Vieques and mostly due to the great owners. Linda and her husband are wonderful. They showed us around, answered each questions about restaurant, supermarket, bars, beaches, snorkeling, fish market, everything. We saw people living in other places come to ask Linda and her husband for advice. The room is decorated with lovely classical style, we can enjoy the pool and take fruit from their orchard. The star fruit are tasted so fresh. And it is cool to spend Christmas with Linda's family: Linda showed us around the island and rain forest for a whole afternoon by her Jeep, with Linda's husband, we jumped into the sea on Christmas night to celebrate this holiday, and we really appreciate the Christmas dinner--- the beef all the way from Colorado. To keep it simple, you will have more than expected enjoyable time here.
