We were very happy with our stay here as we were able to wake up every day and go for a surf. The staff/owners were super friendly and the grounds were always kept looking immaculate as well as the rooms. We loved that we had a fridge and could make meals in our room. Rooms were spacious, location was fabulous,...

I spent 7 days here with my best friend and it literally was one of the best holidays of my life. Super relaxing and right on the beach. The room was spacious, clean and the shower was great. The pool is amazing and the owner lovely! I really recommend this place and am looking forward to my next visit already!

I stayed with my family for a night only but my experience has been delightful. The staff was very kind, the location is stunning with a beachfront private pool. We stayed in a studio which also had a kitchenette. The hotel is not so big and it does not have a restaurant although the staff will be glad to show...

We had the best experience at Tortuga Del Mar. Lilli is incredibly personable and kind, and our room was so comfortable. It is simple, but commodious (and with air conditioning!) and the staff are very accommodating. Not only are the rooms luxurious, but the gardens are paradise and there is nothing better than laying in the hammock by the pool...

A stunningly located beach guest house type accommodation. Though relatively basic you have many bars, restaurants, cafes and small supermarkets within a moments walk. The room was kept spotless throughout my week stay and it was great that both the fridge and aircon worked! I had a problem with my door lock which was fixed immediately (with huge apologies). The...

After having a horrible experience down the road at the sandpiper hotel, the tortuga del mar was absolutely perfect! The rooms are beautiful and modern with partial kitchens. The AC is strong and wifi too. The grounds are very well kept and the pool is exquisite. Hands down the best hotel in Hermosa beach!

Thank you Lilly and Till for a lovely stay! The hotel was clearly created and maintained with love and of course the location is second to none. The morning hike with "the special tour guide" was over the top both in way of view, wildlife (McCaw parrots, two different types of toucans, monkeys and blue butterflies) and proximity to the...
