We visited Tortuga Del Mar last November and had a great time. It has a beautiful view. We stayed in the bottom room nearest the water. It was so nice to walk out of your room and walk past the pool to hit the sand. We had two beds in our room and could sleep 3. There weren't many rooms...

Such a great spot. Just about perfect for what it is. A quiet, clean, relaxing place to stay right on a beautiful blacksand beach, with fun waves right out front. The rooms and beds are comfortable, well decorated, clean and well maintained. The pool and yard areas were nicely landscaped. Wouldn't change a thing. Lilly was awesome. Best place we...

I stayed at Tortuga Del Mar as part of a package with del mar surf camp (an amazing experience!). The hotel is tiny with about 8-10 rooms and no resto or breakfast. Having said that, I still loved it. It had the nicest feeling, serene. The pool was clean and nice, and the beach in front was beautiful. The sand...

We stayed here recently and it was beautiful. Grounds are nicely kept, right on the beach. However, the staff was really rude at times. If you are not running on their schedule or want an extra towel or something, it is a big deal. We had requested extra towels and were treated very rudely. Sad because it is such a...

This hotel was the lodging for our surf camp through Rica Surf. My husband and I have only stayed at huge all-inclusive resorts when on vacation so this was a big switch for us since the hotel is really just a small office, 8 rooms, and a pool. However, we LOVED it. The owners Lil and Til were very kind...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Tortuga del Mar as a part of a surf camp we booked through Rica Surf. The hotel is great! It is right on the beach in Hermosa and is within walking distance to everything in Hermosa and a short taxi ride from Jaco. The rooms were clean, quiet, and cool. The hotel itself is...

Til and Lil are scrupulous about the upkeep of the rooms and the grounds. The place was immaculate and very attractive, clean, very comfortable. Great rooms and location. We watched the sunset and watched the surfers, and they even arranged for us to have massages on the beach under their palm trees. So glad that we weren't staying in Jaco...

Tortuga Del Mar is hands down my favorite place to stay in Costa Rica. In fact, I don't even bother searching other places anymore because it has become a home away from home for me. I've sent friends and family to Tortuga Del Mar and all of them come back to the U.S. not only with a ton of awesome...
