I'm writing this review while still in Sayulita. We love our casita! For privacy, for location, for quietness and proximity to just about everything! And of course for a such a host, Marcelo! Not a single question or favor has been left unanswered. Our little daughter enjoys watching turtles and fish in the pond every day, and we appreciate a... More

We spent 23 days at Casitas Tortugas. We stayed on the top floor for about a week and a half, then moved down to a bottom floor casita. The top was amazing with the jungle setting in teh trees (lots of iguana action) and the opportunity for private sunbathing. You can hear sounds of town on the top but that... More

This place is ideally located, very close to the beach, very close to the plaza and quiet considering how busy Sayulita can be in the evenings. The apartments are very cute, the back patio delightful; everything is tastefully decorated and well maintained. The owner, Marcelo, is the friendliest guy on earth. He is very helpful, always with a big smile... More

This is my third visit to Sayulita but my first time at Casitas Tortugas. Marcelo, the owner, is a terrific host and treats his guests like friends. The casita was very clean and the property has been very well maintained. I liked it because I was travelling with my teenage daughters and it felt safe and also well equipped with... More

Wonderful experience made easier with our contact to Manager Marcello while sorting out our booking issues. Our casita was extremely comfortable, everything worked and the fans were A+ ! The location is ideal, close enough to the zocalo, stores and beaches, but removed enough from the street that we could enjoy some peace and quiet when the town gets noisy... More

Beautiful building in the local style of architecture featuring a charming garden populated with turtles, buddhas and iguanas. Rooms are small and efficient. Location is optimal -- steps away from the beach as well as the Plaza Principale, just far enough to not be too noisy (except maybe on Friday night). Amazing value and all the necessities - wifi, filtered... More

A short walk from the town square and beach Casitas Tortugas has you covered. The rooms are well appointed, comfortable and secure. The owner, Marcelo is a lovely man who made sure my stay was a memorable one. If you're looking for a relaxing and competetively priced stay you can't go past this place. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

We just returned from our second stay at Casitas Tortugas. The owner, Marcelo, lives on premises and is always available to answer questions or help out. We've stayed there twice with our toddler and appreciate that the place is very safe and secure, and the pond with the turtles and fish is a great distraction (plus Marcelo gave us food... More
