The rooms are a good size. Bathrooms are ok, bit cramped. The hostel is located just next to the beach, a short walk from the main centre where you can book tours etc. Resorts all require boats to get to, so if you want to do things independently, this is a good place to stay. Staff were helpful and friendly...

The b and b Icaco Lodge in Tortuguero is wonderful and very inexpensive. I highly recommend it. It is right on the ocean , and the cheap price includes breakfast. The staff are very sweet and helpful. It does not have first class rooms, but for the person travelling on a budget, it is the best.

We stayed here for two nights. The rooms were clean and cozy. It is right on the beach, the rooms do not have a view, but the view from the hammock is priceless. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We will stay here again and have no hesitation to recommend this B&B. We did our booking on hostelworld.com

This hostel is a bit pricey, 25 a room didn't seem to matter how many people you have. The view from their hammock cabana is pretty sweet! It's pretty close to the beginning of the 22 mile stretch of beach the tortugas lay eggs and hatch from, about mile #4. We came at the end of hatching and if we...

good setup - the hammocks were very relaxing. Tortuguero is definitely not a party destination but this is a great place to stay if you want to see the abundant wildlife. The hotel offers "free" breakfast from 7-9:30. This is good, but most of the morning wildlife tours on the island run from 6-9 so, if you go on a...

The rooms are very basic but the location is gorgeous – right by the beach and near the centre of town (if that exists!). Breakfast was simple but adequate. A nice little place to stay in a gorgeous part of the world

We stayed 2 nights at the El Icaco. Staff member came to take our bagage and guided us to the hotel. When we arrived, the owner took time to explain to us activities to do on the island. We did the turtle tour with the hotel, it was amazing. The hotel offers breakfast and confortable basic room. It is close...

Nicely located directly at the beach where the sea turtles nest. Nice hammock hangout area and reasonably clean rooms with private bathroom. 24/7 reception/security personnel which do their best to help. Small and basic kitchen area which is not accessible during late evening or night times. I enjoyed my stay there and would return.
