“nice hotel”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

nice hotel. close to 5th avenue and the center of playa. we stayed there for 5 days overall and switched rooms. the lower rooms are new and nice, the upper rooms are less nice and not good in isolating noise. one night at a room in the second fioor I woke up for the noise of water running through the pipes at the wall as a guy in the next room took a shower at 5:00 a.m. I could'nt go back to sleep untill he finished because the nise was terrible! other from that, a good hotel with good service and good breakfast, alltough I didn't like the idea of having to pay extra for another basket of bread

Room Tip: take the rooms at the ground foor- 101-104. they are bigger, nicer and newer

Nice staying, but expected more about the room, specially the shower and the tv. I also found the water was salty, which was the wost thing about the hotel. Anyway, the restaurant is good, so is the pool. The location is perfect and the staff was also nice.

Very nice accommodations that are close to the beach, right around the corner from La Quinta and close to several clubs in the area. Would highly recommend a stay here, the staff was fun and helpful, while the service was very good.

After a bit of difficulty finding the door (no signage that you can see from the street) we had a fantastic stay. Staff was very accommodating and gave us excellent day trip advice.
Our Jr. Suite was perfect. We even slept on the rooftop terrace on evening.
If you don't want to stay right on the beach, La Tortuga is an excellent choice.

Room Tip: Jr. Suite is the best value. Top floor.

We had the chance to stay in Tortuga for 8 nights and we will definitelly go back! Hotel atmosphere is excellent, rooms are very clean! Pool area is also very nice to chill and last but not least the staff is extremly helpfull especially Pedro!
Location also 5*: one corner away from the 5th Avenue, 5 min away from the beach bars. I would say the hotel in its category is the best one!

Just back from a great break in Playa del Carmen staying at La Tortuga Hotel.

Staff are really friendly and helpful, the included breakfast was good and the location is fantastic.

About a 5 mins walk to the main beach, and then if you want a quieter section of beach walk a further 10 mins or so down to Playa Car past the pier / Senor Frogs.

5th avenue is just 1 min away but it is really quiet in the hotel/area.

10/10!

Room Tip: We stayed in a junior suite - massive room and worth the upgrade. Get one on the 3rd floor if possib...
