Fodor's Review

Mosaic stone paths wind through lovely gardens, and colonial-style hardwood furnishings gleam throughout at this inn on a side street. At the center of the property are a botanical garden and stunning pool area where tiki torches and illuminated palm trees lead to two-story adobe buildings. Rooms are small, but most have balconies and are well-equipped with flat-screen TVs, minibars, safes, and iPod docks. There's a common area with a bar and pool table, as well as a spa exclusively for guests. Attached to the hotel is the wonderful Italian restaurant Como Como, where you receive a 20% discount. Although La Tortuga isn't on the beach, guests get discount passes to three nearby beach clubs.
