Cabinas El Icaco Tortuguero
Ranked #5 of 10 Tortuguero B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 February 2017

We stayed 3 nights here in January this year, the rooms are basic but clean and quite spacious. The beds are not the most comfortable, but the room is dark whih allows a good night sleep as well as being in a quiet location. Towels and sheets were changed every day, and there is a nice area at the front on the property with hammocks to relax and read. We were greeted from the boat by Roberto who also took us through what activities and trips were available during our stay. He was nice, friendly and didn't pressure us at all. We used him for an early morning kayak trip in the canals where we saw a great variety of wildlife, including caimans, lizards, monkeys and birds. Roberto was a knowledgable guide and spoke pretty good English. The walk through the national park is also worth doing, we saw snakes, tarantulas, monkies and a deer. Overall this property offers clean budget accommodation and is good value for the price you pay in a great location.

Room Tip: We were in the room on the bottom floor in the back of the property, this was quiet but very dark ev...

We stayed 2 nights in the hotel Icaco. It is very quiet (the only noise you hear is the ocean) and beautifully located (few meters from the ocean). The crew is friendly and helpful. Considering the price of the room it is a good choice for a stay in Tortuguero.

This hotel is in a lovely beachside location, really easy to walk to from the riverside of Tortuguero. We enjoyed many walks along the beach in search of baby turtles during our stay.

The room was really clean and tidy. There were some ants but the hotel is by the sea so not the hotel's fault at all.

I would recommend going into the town for breakfast, we found some great little places, but the coffee at Icaco is great and the dining area is a lovely place to sit and wake up in the morning.

Overall, very relaxing.

I am currently here with my mother, chilling out on a hammock, listening to the waves in front of us with some chilled out music from the restaurant area behind. Heaven!This morning we saw a turtle hatching and making its trek to the sea, from right outside the hotel. The rooms are cosy and comfy with a good sized bathroom. Just what you need, value for money with friendly staff. Would recommend!

Clean and friendly place, right on the beach, good value for money. Good breakfast. The tours proposed by Roberto were very interesting. (Canoe tour in the morning and night walk to see the turtles).A good place to stay a couple of nights. Good value for money. Would recommend.
