Tartaruga is definitely a gem where one can relax and enjoy the solitude and beautiful surroundings. The concept of self catering worked extremely well. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the facilities were great. One negative was that we did not see the manager at all and there was evidence of neglect as far as small details were concerned. These details take litle effort but could spoil what is a potentially a 5 star experience.
