    I highly recommend La Tortuga - the service is beyond excellent. Everyone that works there is amazing - so nice and incredibly accommodating and helpful. We had a wonderful stay there and I would definitely go back!

    Great relaxing poolside lounge/bar. Small but chic

    The prices quoted for tours and transfers were double what we ended up booking on the high street

    Very friendly staff and the place was beautiful in every way.

    Only one thing the room we stayed in room 117 was noisy from the night club just two doors down the road (coco bongo !)

    Superb

    Lovely hotel, staff really look after you, we were there on honeymoon so we indulged in this hotel although it is rather overpriced for what it offers but probably comparable to other hotels in the area. Stunning hotel though, public areas were just perfect

    Right next to a large and late opening night club, didnt really bother us but I can imagine it would bother some, open from midnight until 6.30 am every day

    The noise at night from clubs and bars nearby

    Superb

    It is very close to everything you want to do in Playa Del Carmen which is also very close to main attractions like Xplor and Xcarat.

    The Massage Spa is way too expensive compared to every massage spa within 5 miles. $120 versus $30 per hour is huge difference, surprised they have any customers at all. The wifi needs improving. It came and went and was never stable or really usable.

    Nice pool area and very friendly and professional reception staff.

    The room was very very small (we took standard room), also air con was extremely laud (happily we did not have to use it during night as it would be impossible to sleep with it switched on). There is no privacy in pool area as all the time somebody is doing something (picking up leaves, moving plants, repairing something also up to 10pm). Breakfast is rather poor, most of the staff in restaurant do not speak English and food is not to good as well, also ordering the same drink each day, each day it tasted differently.

    La Tortuga is perfectly located in the middle of Playa del Carmen, close to the beach. Hotel is quite small and is perfect tourist who dislike enormous chain hotels. The staff is extraordinary nice to the guest and we started to feel at home the first day after our check-in.

    Superb

    Very polite and hard working staff. They were always friendly and helped us in every single way if we had any questions. The rooms were cleaned every day. Breakfast was good. Not a buffe but still a rather good selection. The pool area is very nice and relaxing. All together La Tortuga is a perfect hotel with a personal touch. I would definitely go here again and I would also recommend it to anyway planning to visit Playa del Carmen.

    Nothing at all.

    We stayed at La Tortuga for the last four nights of a two week holiday in Mexico. I would definitely recommend this hotel to any couples or groups of friends going to the area. The staff were so courteous and friendly and the swimming/bar area is beautifully designed and a great place to chill with a cocktail. We stayed in a standard room and although the room itself was quite small it had all the facilities you could need and a huge, very comfy bed. Their adjoining restaurant had an extensive list of breakfast options and everything we tried was really tasty. It was also the quickest restaurant service we experienced all holiday.

    Some other visitors to this hotel had mentioned the noise from near-by clubs, which we could hear faintly from our room. If you are a light sleeper it would be a good idea to invest in earplugs just in case, as the music does go on till about 6am on the weekends.

    Decor and design was outstanding. Food was excellent. Staff were friendly and attentive

    Droning bass from 10pm till late from the nightclub next door. Tipping everyone expects. Just pay the staff sufficiently. The rest of the world manages to do it. Mexico, do not follow this insulting practice / attitude from the USA.

    We liked the atmosphere and the look of the place - it was really beautiful. The pool area really looks great, both day and night.

    The beaches they work with are a bit far from the hotel. Our rooftop private hot tub had no hot water. Since there was a tree above it, it was pretty messy with leaves and seeds - seems like no one cleaned there for some time.

    Great staff and good location at a reasonable price.

    Room would be better with blockout curtains to darken room from early morning sun.
