The Villa Tortuga is one of those places where you land and just feel comfortable and safe. David and his staff treat you like you're guest in their home. The atmosphere is friendly, chill and very service oriented. There is an adjacent spa and killer movie rentals which in this day of streaming feels very authentic and personal. There is... More

Villa Tortuga is an amazing place to stay and David and his staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. They setup all of our daily excursions and call ahead to let the people know we where coming which made us very comfortable. The amenities at Villa Tortuga are top notch and the property is very beautiful! This was our second time... More

David and his team at Villa Tortuga help make our stay enjoyable year after year. Centrally located a short walk away from the beach and restaurants of Nosara, makes it the perfect base for families and surfers alike. Having surfed most of North and Central America, Nosara is far and away the most consistent break I have found. Coming back... More

First, the property itself is gorgeous, clean and in absolute poll position for access to absolutely pristine beaches with perfect surf. But you will see plenty of rave reviews on that. I choose rather to focus on the Personnel that manage and run Villa Tortuga. You see, by the time I landed in Liberia I was sporting a fever, sore... More

Have been twice to Villa Tortuga - and planning on returning yearly until the unforeseen future! David and his staff are gracious and accommodating hosts! Wonderful apartments - clean and nicely appointed. Just a stone's throw from the beautiful beaches. As I said, we will be back!

We stayed at the Villa Tortuga for a surf trip last November. The rooms were spacious and clean. The washer/dryer was also key to clean salty bathing suits and clothes filthy from ATV rides. The staff was extremely friendly: one of them brought in his father to cook up some mahi that we had caught the day before -- by... More

December 2014 was my first experience staying at Villa Tortuga after 10 years of traveling to Playa Guiones/Nosara and all I can say is, "Wow...what an amazing place. One of the best experiences I've had in Nosara!" David and his staff are beyond friendly and attentive, the accommodations top notch with everything you need provided for and just minutes from...

I've been to Nosara 3 times in the past 12 months. Each visit I've stayed at Villa Tortuga. Exceptional - no doubt. The accommodations are clean and comfortable. The price is right on. The staff is attentive and welcoming. Dave and his crew ensure that whatever you will need he can make happen. I've been there with friends and I've... More

We stayed in Casa Pelicano for a week recently and I can't wait to go back. David was a great host and the entire staff was very accommodating. The villas were dreamy with huge balconies and everything one could want in an apartment. They even have movies and books in the front office along with lessons and rentals. We were... More

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... More
