      Getting there.

      The main point of arrival Cancun International Airport is 50.2km from the hotel.

      From Cancun Airport by car:

      Take the only highway south towards Playa, and wait until you will see the green exit (on your left hand side) signs for Playa.

      Wait until you pass most of them and take the exit that says "AVENIDA JUAREZ", one of the last.

      Take a left, and drive all the way along Avenida Juarez until the end, where you will be forced to take a left (one way street), upon meeting Avenida 10.

      Drive along Avenida 10 for about 10 blocks until, on your right hand side, you will see La Tortuga Hotel at the corner of Calle (street) 14.

      Other transportation available from the airport includes:

      • buses that leaves from outside the main arrival hall at the airport. Just before you exit the terminal, there is a Riviera counter where you can buy your ticket (about USD9). In Playa del Carmen the bus works out of the main bus terminal at 5th Avenue and Juarez.
      • a colectivo is (usually) a van that will take up to 10 people. They don't leave at any specific time, but you will have to wait until it's full enough to justify the trip. You may have to make stops at other resorts and hotels along the way, which can easily double the time it will take you to get to Playa del Carmen. To take one of these authorized taxis, go to any of the TTC kiosks located around the terminal and buy a ticket, or just step out of the arrival hall and you will get many offers. The price usually works out to about USD18 per person.
      • taxis that depart from the terminal. It is roughly a 45 minute ride to Playa del Carmen. A union controls who can carry tourists from the airport and what they charge. Taxis originating in Playa del Carmen are not actually authorized to take people to Playa, but you may end up with a driver that cannot find his way around Playa very well. The ride to Playa del Carmen will cost you around USD65.
      • airport transfers are available 24 hours a day, no extra costs for late night pick-ups or departures. Approximate amount for transfer is USD55 for one or two people.

        Room and lobby design, location - centered and quite, very comfortable bed

        Bathroom not comfortable enought, water pooing our of the shower cabin, few space for storage the staff in the room

      • Older travelers

        Setting was beautiful. Gorgeous grounds, pools, lush vegetation, comfortable lounge chairs and lounge beds. Small, quaint hotel with attentive staff that were fabulous. Delicious a la carte breakfasts: we tried a different one everyday. Rooms all seemed different: we upgraded to a Superior junior suite and loved it. One block from 5th Avenue, yet quiet. I read reports about the noise from the Coco Bongo club nearby, but we heard NOTHING and slept like babies. We often walked to the Mosquitoe Beach Club, which they give you a daily pass to, and loved that also!

        They don't have a gym, however you get a 50% discount at "THE GYM", which is 2 blocks away and is an amazing full service gym with yoga, spinning, etc classes, and we got a 5 day pass for $30/pp.

        The staff where excellent and extremely helpful

        Plants where a bit old and tired around the jacuzzi area on the roof

      • Couple
        9.6

        Location is excellent. Despite the hotel is one block far from the night clubs, it is silent and relaxing. The staff is amazing.

      • Couple
        9.2

        We got a free upgrade which made a lovely difference. Bed was huge and very comfy. Bathroom was lovely, with good shower power.

        They left 2 bottles of water in the room seperate from the mini bar fridge so we assumed they were complimentary but we got charged for them when leaving. Would be nice of them to offer free water as you can't drink the tap water.

      • Single
        7.8

        It was serene, a five minute walk from the busy streets yet the design and the fact that the hotel bar closes at 11pm means the hotel is very quiet at night but also in the daytime too. Very comfortable rooms too.

        The landscaped gardens around the pool are beautiful but do attract a lot of bugs and the pool whilst looking beautiful is not actually very easy to swim in as the depth varies a lot with many stairs and levels every few feet.

      • Couple
        9.2

        Very Nice pool. Good reasonable priced restaurant. Just 1 block from main street and 2 from the beach

      • Couple
        10.0

        The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was small but very nice. Overall, the ambiance was great, the restaurant was quite good, and the location (1 block from avenida quinta) was fantastic.

      • Group of friends

        We liked the service. Everyone was friendly and I felt very relaxed.

      • Couple

        We will definitely be back. The Bistro offered fine dining and service at a reasonable price.

      • Older travelers

        La Tortuga has a wonderful sense of design throughout. Great location and a great staff.

      • Couple
        8.8

        This great hotel is the best you can find for this price range in Playa Del Carmen! The staff was great and really willing to assist with any question you might have, and always with a smile. The rooms are very nice and clean (although they seem a little old). The hotel is generally kept in a very good condition by the nice staff. Enjoy the special pool and nice bar to escape the noise and chaos of the 5th avenue, which is right around the corner! bottom line-highly recommended!

        We had to ask the reception to take care of a phone-ringing nonstop in a room next to ours (a kind of an office). Also, the AC was noisy and sure could use gas refill.

      • Couple
        9.2

        Excellent hotel. Highly recommended. The breakfast in the morning was outstanding with great service. Very good service at the hotel. Clean rooms with a distinct charm. Fantastic location. I was concerned about noise from coco bongo but it was not an issue at all- i couldnt hear any noise.

        Internet wifi was not accessible from my room. It was available by the pool, lobby, and restaurant.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        It is like a quiet, cool oasis in the middle of Playa del Carmen. Minutes from the beach, with free access to several of the beach clubs. Just off Av. 5, with immediate access to all shops, restaurants etc and 15 min walk from island ferry terminal. Friendly staff. Lots of privacy if wanted. Great cocktails at poolside bar. Food fairly average but lots of alternatives

      • Older travelers
        3.8

        The Hotel is pretty. The people cleaning our rooms, serving our food and cleaning the premises were helpful and friendly.

        When a hotel is called a Spa what comes to mind is relaxation and quietness. This hotel turns out to be in the middle of a very busy night life area. On arrival we requested at reception to be in a quiet room, my wife and I went to sleep at 10pm after an almost 24hr trip to the hotel at 11pm we were woken up by the base beat sounds from the club nearby, the music was incredibly loud and finally finished at 6am. To make things worse during the hour that we managed to sleep the air conditioning leaked onto a table where our mobile phone was. In the morning the Manager of the hotel wouldn't deal directly with us for quite a long time, instead she kept sending her subordinates and there was a lot of confusion on the cancellation procedures. First they told us they couldn't give us the money back (the full amount was taken on arrival - now I know why) at all and we had to talk to Booked.net. We said that was unacceptable since we had paid them directly the night before. So then they changed their minds and acknowledged they could but they would charge us two extra nights on top of the one we stayed (3 nights in total). The reason for charging us at all was because they had offer us another room on the other side of the (very small) hotel where sound seems not to travel (very very doubtful, since we could hear the sound the music outside the hotel!) and we decided not to put our holidays in their hands another minute.
