We recently returned from spending a week at Casa Tortuga. We had a group of 10 celebrating my husbands upcoming 50th birthday. The worse thing that happened to us was getting stranded on the North end as our golf carts had issues; however, we spent time at Palapas Bar while carts were repaired and had a fabulous time. Happy to say this is the worse thing that we experienced. WE had a fabulous time. I cannot say enough about Maria and the staff. Food was superb daily with 3 meals a day, all fresh....absolutely heavenly. We are all low key and felt they went over and beyond. The fresh pies nightly.....now we all have to diet but it was delicious. Carlos was also amazing and made sure we all got to do what we wanted. The day of snorkeling and cooking up our catch for a picnic lunch was my favorite. This was a great place as everyone had many opportunities to plan an excursion and experience what they wanted. The only thing we thought would have been better for the accommodations is if there were an ice machine, but then again, not sure how long they would last with the salty air, etc. WE arrived with 10 couples and everyone had an amazing time; we left with 8 couples. :) One couple loved it sooo much and was able to make arrangements to stay another week. Definitely a place I'd like to visit again.
