Beautiful pool area, comfortable clean rooms, reasonable price, friendly staff, centrally located to shopping, dining, beach, clubs, etc. great happy hour from 5-7 on site spa with reasonable prices. Have a deal with one of the beach clubs where you can lounge and have service for food and drinks.

My overall experience at La Tortuga was excellent. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, the rooms were nice, clean and spacious, and the pools throughout were fantastic. It's prime location but also not very noisy. I would definitely stay there again!

If your idea of romantic relaxation is chill kids free beach boom boom free chill then the Tortuga is for you. The meandering pool has equal shade and sunny spots- and since I'm a cocktail in the shade sort of lady then it is a dream. Very pretty. trees envelope the pool.

This hotel doesn't look like much from the roadside, especially with roadworks ongoing, but from the moment you step inside you will be treated like royalty. The secluded courtyard offers a stunning tropical garden swimming pool and hot tub, spa, restaurant and bar. The rooms are clean with comfortable beds and a balcony. The hotel is off the main strip (so a little quieter), but only a block away from restaurants and shops, and 2 blocks from the white sand beach.
We have nothing bad to say about our experience or the exceptional service!

Great hotel staff - very helpful and keen to help you with every request and need.
Great location - right next to all of the town's main streets and the 5th ave.
Breakfast was delicious.
The room was big with a private balcony and a hot tab.

This is the place to stay in Playa del carmen, Mexico!

We reserved in this hotel 6 nights in our honeymoon. The pool is great, the stuff are very kind and nice. But we had bad experience her since there is no hot water and every time we wanted to have a shower we had to call them, and one time we had to wait 5 hour so they can fix it. The brekfast is disappointing, they don't have bouffette, there is restaurant near tge hotel offering 3 packages to breakfast and its very poor, and we still didn't talked aboyt the noise since the municipality is working in the street around the hotel and besife them they are buildi something so they begin working at mornunv till the nigbt and we couldn't rest at day...and when we wanted to cancel the reservation the manager didn't authorized to refund us.
We won't recommend to stay in this hotel althou its located in the center and its close to every thing.
