Low-key, family-run resort of delightful circular cottages on stilts surrounding an inviting pool, all beside one of the country's finest beaches.
The low-key, family-run Tortuga Village sits in blissful isolation on one of El Salvador's most beautiful beaches. Accommodation is in eight delightful circular cottages on stilts, each hovering above a private open-air area replete with hammocks and chairs. Above, sheltered by a palm-thatched roof, the wood-lined bedrooms almost have the feel of treehouses and are simply but stylishly decorated with white furnishings.
The cottages surround a lovely pool, dotted with little islands of palm trees and a row of sunken sun loungers for relaxing in the cool of the water. There's a well regarded seafood restaurant attached too. The beach is just steps away and is an important site for turtle nesting and hatching in season –the hotel runs a conservation project as part of its commitment to protecting the still unspoilt natural environment.
