This small, eco-friendly hotel sitting on the sands of Playa Grande breathes authenticity! Hotel Las Tortugas is the only hotel in Playa Grande on the beach, and hosts a property with a pool, jacuzzi, open-air restaurant/bar, and hammock area—a perfect one-stop location for anyone ready to land on the active surf break. Additionally with accommodations ranging from an economic rancho, to traditional rooms and private apartments outfitted with kitchenettes, Las Tortugas can tailor to your stay.
If you are visiting Playa Grande with that special someone ask to stay in their honeymoon suite overlooking the ocean from it’s private balcony. For something more private, Las Tortugas apartments are just a short walk from the main property, featuring full kitchens and share access to the hotel clubhouse, pool and bar—where the specialty is margaritas.
The friendly staff are an invaluable resource for booking local tours, suggestions and tips on the area. And with Playa Grande in front of you, make sure to take advantage of the essential water exploration rentals on-site including canoes, boogie boards, and surfboards.
Speaking to their commitment to ecotourism, Las Tortugas was developed to be sensitive to its surrounding national park and principal nesting grounds to the protected Giant Leatherback Sea Turtle. The hotel funds and manages projects promoting the Tamarindo National Wildlife Sanctuary and Las Baulas National Marine Park. Furthermore, serving as the sanctuary’s information center, you will have direct access to up-to-date status on turtle hatching and guided tours.
