We stayed one night at Hotel
La Tortuga (Las Terrenas, Samana Peninsula) in July 2014.
This is a small hotel offering a dozen bungalows a few meters from
the beach and the center of Las Terrenas.
The hotel is well located and easy to find. At the "Pueblo de los Pescadores" take the small street to the left (Avenue of Italy) between aparthotel Caribey and the Residence Don Cesar then the first right.
The accommodation in Las Terrenas is close to everything, beach, restaurants, bars, colmados (grocery), nightclubs ... in a quiet and calm place.

Our review on the stay
We spent two nights in Las
Terrenas, the first night we stayed at La Tortuga. The bungalows
are nice, with a terrace with chairs and a small table. The master
bedroom is quite large with a small fridge (two small bottles of
water are provided on arrival). There is a kind of small hallway
with a closet and bathroom with shower and toilet.
Upstairs, a room with 3 single beds is accessed by a steep staircase.
The breakfast is basic but adequate with coffee, milk, bread, butter, 2 jams, fruits (banana, pineapple, melon depending on the season), a glass of fresh juice and eggs and bacon.
La Tortuga is well located in Las Terrenas close to everything, the hotel is fine for a stay and to visit the Samana Peninsula. The bungalows are simple but adequate for a holiday in the Dominican Republic.

Small and friendly, the bungalows are rustic genres, but comfortable enough for a holiday. La Tortuga is close to everything, it is convenient.
