Hotel Info

Overview

The Turtle Beach Lodge lies 5 km to the north of the town of Tortuguero and may be reached by the small canal Caño Palmas. Surrounded by 175 ha of tropical gardens and jungle, the hotel offers access to the beach and the Atlantic. Spanning almost 19,000 ha, Tortuguero National Park features as one of the key attractions of Costa Rica with its countless lagoons and canals. The park takes its name from the sea turtles (�tortugas�), which come to the beach to lay their eggs annually. The hotel complex is nestled amidst paradisiacal natural landscape and luscious tropical vegetation. The hotel includes a total of 30 rooms, a currency exchange facility and a 24-hour reception desk. Dining options include a restaurant. Guests can relax in the hotel bar after an eventful day of sightseeing. A games room is also available in the hotel. The rooms are set in various rustic Caribbean-style wooden huts and include an en suite bathroom with shower. Additional fittings include a double bed and a hire safe. Guests may relax and unwind beside the swimming pool or on the beach. Guests can select their breakfast, lunch and dinner from a buffet. The hotel offers an all-inclusive stay. This hotel's package includes the transport from any hotel in San Jose centre to Turtle Beach and the return to San Jose. The pick up time from the hotel in San Jose is 6 am so it is recommended that guests reserve one night before in San Jose. Guests must pay the accommodation cost in the hotel chosen in San Jose, as it is not included in the rates of this package. Guests should inform the hotel of their flight number, and the time when arriving at Juan Santamaria International Airport, as well as the date and time of their return flight.

1/10 Okay

28 August 2017

BEWARE!

Rooms are small. Mattress was terrible. No dresser or closet for clothes. Breakfast, lunch and dinner has very very limited choices (only 1 main dish). Drinks are way overpriced and they don't tell you about the extra 20% tax and service fee you'll pay when you check out. Swimming pool very very small and no where close to enough chairs. Beach is a disaster, no umbrellas or chairs and they don't tell you that you can't swim in the sea (ask why..). Nothing to do and nowhere to go (in the middle of no where. Don't expect to see much wildlife despite the pics they show on the websites. Only thing acceptable was the well kept grounds and overall cleanliness.

The best thing about my stay was...

The morning that I left.
6/10 Good

Nice stay

Consider that it is a Lodge, not a hotel. Excellent cuisine. Friendly personel. Rooms need some more light to be able to read. Surroundings are great.
