Turtle Bay Inn is a unique and charming place located in a quiet area, away from the noisy downtown El Poblado (La Parguera-public square area). Most guests’ reviews highlight the quality of sleep, relaxing atmosphere, and superior cleanliness of rooms, premises and gardens. It is located at just steps from downtown El Poblado and Playita Rosada (natural swimming pool) in the town of Lajas, Puerto Rico. La Parguera is a very beautiful fishermen village that is part of the Natural Reserve between Guánica and Cabo Rojo.
Turtle Bay Inn is owned by a Special Partnership called Turtle Bay Inn –consisting of three members of the Rivera Ruiz family. Zulma Rivera is the major Partner and General Manager.
Zulma holds a Master’s degree in Marine Sciences from the University of Puerto Rico- Mayagüez Campus. The University Marine Sciences Department is located in the Magueyes Island, located few steps across the Turtle Bay Inn facility. While working for the private manufacturing industry for 25 years, Zulma wanted to invest for her retirement in an Industry that could have some potential growth, being the Tourism industry one option at that time. The land where Turtle Bay Inn is located was acquired in December 2007, from a local electrical contractor that had planned to build a two story facility for a Bed and Breakfast, but for personal reasons decided not to continue with the Project. Ms. Rivera analyzed the pro’s and con’s of such big investment, and in October 2008 started the construction of the Hotel. It took only seven months to finish and equipped the facility, and in April 9, 2009 Turtle Bay Inn opened to the public with a 100% of its rooms occupied.
