This is hands down the best place to stay in Nosara. Combine the comforts of what feels like home, with quick beach access, a lovely pool, and some of the nicest people you'll meet anywhere. Everything is at your fingertips here. Just perfect. Thanks David for taking us at the last minute and making our trip to Nosara the best...

My partner and I stayed at the Villa Tortuga for a week at the end of July and had an absolutely amazing time. The staff were amazing, very kind and accommodating.

This review is long overdue! I stayed at Villa Tortuga twice in just three months (on my birthday in Dec 2013, and again in Mar 2014). I traveled solo both times, and stayed in the Del Mar suite - an incredibly spacious two bdrm apt (I know - a bit large for just one person but I love having a...

We stayed in two different units at Villa Tortuga during our week long vacation. The first unit was Casa Del Mar, a two bedroom, one bath space with a kitchen and living room area. Only the bedrooms were air conditioned and boy was it hot in Costa Rica. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to make coffee and...

This is the second time I've gone down and stayed at Villa Tortuga. David, Alex, Adrianna and the entire team are wonderful. The accomodations are clean, comfortable, spacious. Very convenient to the beach. If you want to experience all that Nosara has to offer the people at Villa Tortuga will gladly make arrangements with excellent and reputable operators. Aside from...

We stayed at Villa Tortuga for a week and it was terrific. David (the owner) and his staff were great - very friendly and helpful. The place itself was perfect for us. The beach is practically in the backyard and it's in close proximity to just about everything else (restaurants, grocery, adventure tours, yoga, etc.). The room we stayed in...

Last December I stayed at Villa Tortuga with my family and friends for my wedding. First of all I want to say that the Villa is absolutely beautiful, specially the Treehouse, which is where I stayed. The Villa is walking distance from the beach, which makes it very convenient, especially when sunset time comes because you HAVE to be at...

We had a great stay at Villas Tortugas (we stayed in Casa Tortuga - first floor unit). It is as close to the beach as you can get. There are also a number of restaurants within walking distance. The house is well-equiped, though, so you could self-cater easily. We traveled with 2 adults and 2 children, ages 6 and 4,...

The surf is less crowded on the North End of Giones, and there's a lot of restaurants and a mini-super within easy walking distance. Very chill place to hang out in peace and quiet. A two minute walk up the road to check the surf, or a 30 second bike ride, probably the easiest access to the beach in all...

We stayed at Villa Tortuga for 4 weeks in their busiest season. Nevertheless, Dave and the staff always had time to answer our questions and help out with excursions. There was always someone available to help at the Frog pad, where they also had the biggest DVD collection for rent I have ever seen. Very cheap to rent and lots...

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
