TripAdvisor and Bookings.com had rated Tortuguero Adventures Guesthouse among the best family hotels on Tortuguero Island. It is also one of the few places with A/C. So we planned the timing of our trip based on availability of the hotel (they only have one Family Room), which is often booked.
As we arrived on Tortuguero Island, we realized that our phones didn't have any signal. It's been a long time since we've been without internet. We actually had to talk to people to find our way! We asked some people near the docks where we could find our hotel and they pointed us in the right direction.
The Family Room in the Tortuguero Adventures Guesthouse was a nice, clean, air-conditioned room with an excellent view that could sleep our entire family. The hotel staff spoken English very well and gave us recommendations for restaurants, directions to the beach, and even booked multiple tours for us.
There was a Tiger Heron Nest right next to our hotel, so we enjoyed keeping an eye on the birds. The view from our balcony was beautiful and relaxing.

The room was a little small, but comfortable. But there was nice, relaxing seating just outside the room on the balcony.
The maid left this bow for Savannah, using Savannah's blanket and stuffed bear.
