I have traveled to Costa Rica a few times and my last trip to Hotel Las Tortugas was by far the best. Aside from being set right on the beach in a beautiful location for sunsets, swimming, surfing, and relaxing, the service was great and the food was outstanding. Everyone at the hotel was really friendly and the owners were so accomodating and helpful.
Someone complained about their things being stolen. I just want to say that your belongings will be totally safe if you follow all of the precautions. First of all, there are signs EVERYWHERE at the hotel telling you to watch your things. There are safes in the rooms and as soon as you get there the staff stress the fact that you need put your belongings into the safe and lock up. They also allow you to bring your things into the safe in the reception area. Theft happens everywhere in Costa Rica, and if you are smart about keeping your belongings locked up you will not have a problem.
You have to check out Hotel Las Tortugas. It is a real Costa Rican experience and if you love the beach, surfing, sun, nature, friendly people and good food you will love this place. It is nice to be close enough to Tamarindo where you can go out to bars and check out shops, but Playa Grande is so beautiful and the prefect distance away. I can't wait to go back to Las Tortugas!
