We arrived at 4pm and were shown to our room. We received quite a shock as the room had not been cleaned and the prior occupants were messy to say the least. We were given a new room which was half the size and had no shade and was as hot as an oven so I said we were happy...

I was looking for a few days to recover and recuperate, and La Tortuga Verde was PERFECT for that. Hammocks everywhere, great wifi, gorgeous beach and surf. One complaint is the restaurant - food is way overpriced. However, out the gate and two doors down is a street vendor named Adela. She's the most wonderful lady and serves cheap but...

We stayed here for a couple of nights and it was such a relaxing place. The rooms are clean and spacious with their own indvidual patio including a hammock. While we were here we got to see baby tortures hatch and then be released at night into the sea, such an amazing experience. The next night we went on a...

I came here with some friends to stay the night. We ended having a bonfire all night on the beach! It's very beautiful here from the rooms to the beach. The only irritation was how long the food service takes. We ordered simple things (we were a group of 6) and waited over an hour... When we would ask how...

But hey it is an isolated resort after all. We enquired via email on...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Spread over 3 ocean front properties in Playa El Esteron / Playa Las Flores, El Salvador, La Tortuga Verde is dedicated to living a greener lifestyle in harmony with sea turtles, pelicans, and nature. Large screened-in "salas" in each of the private rooms provide the perfect air-flow design for optimum ocean listening as indirect lighting creates the perfect atmosphere for stargazing and observing the turtle habitat. The property boasts over 400 coconut trees and 3 restaurants. The main restaurant specializes in fresh fish, lobster, shrimp, poultry and local plates using only the freshest fruits and vegetables. The vegetarian restaurant uses organic ingredients whenever possible including sting beans, basil, rosemary and mint from our organic garden. Our ocean front bar restaurant offers cold beer, and a wide variety of cocktails. The bar also serves fresh home made pizza and fish, chicken, shrimp or meat bruchettes made with special bread from Guatemala and fresh basil and rosemary from our organic garden. In addition the bar offers 1 special continental meal per night offered in half or full portions. Also Known As: La Tortuga Verde Hotel El Cuco La Tortuga Verde El Salvador/El Cuco ... more   less
