What our Guests say about Las Tortugas

Hopefully these comments will give you some insight into the things that have made Las Tortugas a great place to holiday for some of our previous guests.

The majority of our guests are from France and Spain so we have included their reviews here with English translations

Il fait bon vivre à Las Tortugas.  Nous étions 10 personnes pendant une bonne partie du séjour (dont 4 enfants) mais la taille et l'aménagement nous ont permis de ne jamais nous gêner.  Les ventilateurs présents dans chaque chambre rafraichissent agréablement les nuit. La maison est isolée, mais proche de toutes les commodités.  Enfin les propriétaires sont absolument adorables.  Nous ne pouvons que recommander chaudement cette location.

One lives well at Las Tortugas.  There were 10 of us during most of our stay (including 4 children) but the size and layout of the house ensured that we did not get in each other's way.  The bedrooms are kept pleasantly cool at night by ceiling fans.  The house is isolated but close to all amenities.  Finally the proprietors are absolutely adorable. We can recommend this house very enthusiastically.

Nous avons passé 2 semaines superbes à Las Tortugas!  La maison est telle que sur les photos: agréable, spacieuse, lumineuse et très fonctionelle.  La piscine était impeccablement entretenue et toujours à la bonne température. La maison est au calme, à l'écart du bruit donc c'était très reposant.  Nous avons été accueillis par les propriétaires qui sont d'une gentillesse incroyable!  Bref, vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés, vous ne serez pas déçus!

We spent 2 superb weeks at Las Tortugas.  The house is just as it appears on the photos: pleasant, spacious, full of light and very well equipped.  The pool was impeccably maintained and the temperature always just right.  The house is situated in a quiet area and so very restful.  We were welcomed by the owners who were unbelievably nice.  In short, you could go with your eyes shut, you will not be disappointed!

The house is situated in a beautiful, secluded location perfect for a relaxing holiday, which is exactly what we had. On arrival we were welcomed by Jane and Terry who had brought us delicious home made bread and marmalade. The house was very clean, spacious and comfortable. We loved lounging outside by the pool and relaxing in the terrace in the evening and of course feeding the tortoises in the garden.

"Maison très bien équipée, très agréable à vivre avec beaucoup de surface !! Elle est très isolée (ce qui est parfait quand on recherche la tranquillité) et offre de beaux panoramas. Les propriétaires nous ont réservé un accueil chaleureux ; ils se sont montrés très attentionnés et soucieux de notre confort tout au long de notre séjour."

Lovely, well equipped house, very pleasant to live in with lots of room.  Its isolation makes it an ideal place if you are looking for peace and quiet, and there are beautiful views.  We had a lovely warm welcome from the owners who made every effort to ensure that our stay was very comfortable.

"Nous avons été particulièrement ravis de séjourner 2 semaines dans cette grande et jolie maison très bien équipée et très fonctionnelle. L'environnement est très calme et bien que la propriété soit isolée ce que nous souhaitions, golf, plages et courses sont à proximité. L'accueil des propriétaires Jane et Terry est charmant et nous serions très heureux de les retrouver une autre année."

We were especially delighted with our stay in this pretty, spacious house which is very well equipped. The surroundings are very quiet and despite its isolation, everything we needed, golf, beaches, and shopping, are nearby.  You get a charming welcome from Jane and Terry and we would be delighted to come again another year.

"We hebben 11 fantastische dagen gehad in het huis van Jane & Terry. We konden geen 1 min punt vinden, in tegendeel het huis was mooier en gezellige aangekleed dan wat je op de foto's kan zien. Alles was aanwezig en het ontvangst van de eigennaren was zeer prettig. Kortkom een echte aanrader.

With two families, we have spend 11 wonderful days in the house of Jane & Terry. We could not find one thing which we did not like. In fact the house is much nicer then shown on the photos and the owners are very kind and helpful people who make you feel at home right away

Las tortugas, increible 
Llevamos más de 10 años alquilando casas para las vacaciones por distintos lugares españoles y esta ha sido la mejor casa que hemos alquilado con diferencia. No le falta un solo detalle, esta limpia y el trato de la dueña Jane es muy bueno. En resumen, si podemos repetiremos.

We have been renting holiday homes all over Spain for the last ten years and is the best we have ever stayed in by far.  Not the smallest detail is missing, it is clean and we were treated very well by the owner, Jane.  To sum up, if we can do it again, we will.

We stayed at Las Tortugas in 2007 when it was a B/B and had a wonderful time so just had to return in September 2009 as self catering to find we were still very much under its spell. So glad that we made the effort this time to tear oursleves away from all that peace and quiet (not to mention the superb pool), to explore more of the area. We highly recommend the Cabo de Gata National Park as we were captivated by its beautiful unspoilt beaches and charming seaside villages, especially Agua Amarga. Las Tortugas is one not to be missed. Accommodation excellent and the owners couldn't do enough for us and knew everything about the area."

Man möchte es kaum verlassen,leider muss man ja auch mal einkaufen ;-) eine Oase der Stille, mit riesen Erholungswert für alle und Platz für große Familien zu einem entspannten Urlaub.

The dream house for a perfect rest. ! A beautifully furnished and perfectly equipped holiday home in the middle of the country. We didn't want to leave it but occasionally you need to go to the shops! An oasis of calm with great recreational opportunities for everyone and plenty of space for a large family to enjoy a relaxed stay.

Maison splendide et très confortable qui est vraiment comme le propriétaire le décrit: calme, vue superbe, vue sur la mer et à quelques kms de la mer et du golf. Jane et Terry sont en plus très sympathique et serviables.  Nous retournons certainement

A splendid, comfortable house which is situated exactly as described: peaceful, superb view, sea view and just a few kilometres from the sea and the golf. Jane and Terry are very nice and helpful.  We will definitely return!
