Only stayed one night but that was enough to notice what a great staff they have. All of them were very friendly and the food was very good. Location is great cause its right in front of the beach and walking distance to restaurants and shops. The hotel has its own restaurant which is very good and prices are similar than the restaurants nearby. I wish the pool would be a little heated, cause it was cold when i was there. The room was very comfortable and all areas of the hotel were very clean. I really enjoyed my stay.
From the moment you enter the magical garden of La tortuga, the melodies of tiny singing frogs and crickets greet you. Director Isabelle is a nurturing presence throughout your stay, as well as an exceptionally excellent cuisine chef. Meals at La Tortuga are succulent, the best I have ever had apart from top big city chef restaurants--but for 1/3 of their prices. Follow Isabelle's daily dish recommendations: she knows exactly which is the freshest and most delicious. Overall my experience at La Tortuga was unparalleled, in service, personalized attention (we asked for a breakfast mangu and fried egg dish as well as a sancocho for dinner, and got them in a flash), beautiful natural setting in midst of trees and flowers, proximity to beach, quiet and secluded personal down time, access to many tour guides for various explorations/day trips. Thank you Isabelle and Mauricio for an exceptional stay! :-)
We stayed at this hotel while visiting my daughter who is studying abroad in Santo Domingo.
We all agreed it exceeded our expectations from what we saw online. The room was very cute and inviting, and clean. My only complaint with the room, was that the beds were extremely hard and uncomfortable. The grounds and pool were beautiful and well kept.
It was wonderful to have breakfast on the beach, though I would say the food was average except for the amazing fresh fruit. The beach is beautiful!
