La Tortuga

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by coloradowanderer on February 12, 2008

I am a budget traveler so this was a huge splurge for me. No special occasion, but I still felt like a queen. From check-in to check-out, the staff was above and beyond friendly. The desk is temporarily located in the restaurant, Agora and there is no La Tortuga sign right now. Be sure to get your coupon for the complimentary breakfast, beach towels, and Mamita's coupon for free chairs and palapa.

Our jacuzzi suite, 202, was quiet with a faint construction noise that did not bother us. The view might be prettier over the pool, lit with lights and white lights in the trees at night, but we enjoyed the jacuzzi on our private terrace. Simply decorated, there was not a thing on the walls, glass shower and stylish dual sink bowls, towels, bathrobe, Agua products, mini-fridge and king-sized bed were all superb.

The weather was rainy for one day of our stay, the last day of the trip we went to the beach, so the pool will have to wait for next time. The bar looked nice as well with happy hour all afternoon and evening, pool table and cushy, white couches. A busy computer is available for use.

Breakfast is downstairs at your leisure and it's your choice off of the regular menu. Eggs mexican style served with beans and mashed potatoes, interesting but good of course.

We loved our special treat of La Tortuga and highly recommend it!
