Close to the beach. Great service from staff. Super relaxed atmosphere. Amenities abound. Lots of stuff to do for kids and adults alike. Walk the beach at night and find turtles laying eggs. Go surfing, ziplining, dining, biking or whatever. It's the one spot the family always mentions when talking about holidays.

Perfectly located near the north beach entrance, 3 minute walk by foot. Room was very nice and spacious, with great view overlooking the pool. Walking distance to market, and other restaurants and hotels which was great on our first night when we arrived. You don't need to rent a car or atv if you stay here since everything is walking...

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.

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
