We travelled as two families and cannot praise Villa Tortuga enough. The location is amazing with great restaurants and cafes on your door step and the beach within a 2 minute walk. The apartments are beautifully clean and spacious with everything you need. The communal barbecue area is also fantastic for when you want to just cook and hang out...

This was our second trip to Nosara and our second time at Villa Tortuga. The first time, my husband and I stayed at the Tree House. This time, since we were traveling with our children and my parents, we booked Casa Pelicano. It's a 3-br, second-story apartment and the space was perfect for us. It's a very short walk to...

Villa Tortuga is in a great location, being able to walk to the beach and restaurants and a quick drive into town. The rooms were clean, spacious, and had working air conditioning. The grounds were beautiful, highlighting the tropical feel of Costa Rica. David made the reservation process easy, while Alex made sure our stay was exactly what we wanted....

Clean, rooms are spacious, great location, and the staff is very accommodating. A must stay if you're going to be visiting Nosara. Great place for surfers and families. Plenty of restaurants are in walking distance.

We have been back to nosara four times and always stay at villa tortuga. It is an oasis. It's safe friendly seconds from there beach entrance has just right level of privacy but you still in the middle of where you want to be to walk to everything

This is a great place to stay if your looking for a good location to get around Nosara. I've been to Nosara five times and in the past have rented houses or stayed at hotels but this place is probably one of the best, location wise. You're not directly in town, so you still get that naturey feel, but you...

First of all, I have to say that this was one of my most enjoyable vacations. Nosara is chill, the people are friendly and importantly it's not very crowded which makes it a great place to unwind and get away from it all.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Here at Villa Tortuga we've attempted to create a vacation destination that feels just like home. We've taken all of the things that we've enjoyed from our own vacation experiences and combined them to form our dream vacation spot. Nestled near the sleepy town of Nosara, Playa Guiones is an ideal getaway for everyone. A three minute walk through the National Parklands gets you to a beautiful white sand beach with great surf and warm water. Our guests enjoy a relaxing environment where they can forget about the stress of daily life. Whether strolling along the sandy beaches, surfing, horseback riding through the jungle, or just lounging by the pool, we are immersed in one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. ... more   less
