We arrived late in the afternoon, around 3pm. The staff is very helpful and accomodating. The place is very homey, and the room is stunningly clean. The food they offer is reasonably priced. I would proudly recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte.

My family and I made a mistake by booking at Saud Beach resort. (My review is under that venue) so we had to find an eatery nearby to avoid eating at the resort. We found this place that served excellent Ilocano food by competent friendly staff if only we had found this place sooner. The beach at Saud Beach is... More

We stayed 3 nights here February 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed Saud beach and also the hospitality at Tartarugas. Saud beach is really nice, particularly the part that is near to Tartarugas. The hotel isn't actually on the beach but is a very short walk away, the beach is clean, quiet and the water was calm and clear. If you want... More

Stayed here for 1 night during a road trip of the North Philippines because of the high rating it got on TripAdvisor. Firstly I will start with it's positives: immaculately clean; great food in the restaurant which was well patronised (always a good sign); lovely staff; fresh towels and bedding; and attention to decor with some nice artwork. This is... More

This is a bungalow hotel with eight rooms, each go for PHP 2,900 per night with breakfast. Not cheap, but quite fair - the rooms are cozy and immaculately clean, the bed, pillows and sheets are very comfortable. The service is spectacular and probably the only weakness was unstable internet connection. The windows also look out to another house --... More

This is actually a long over due review. I could not miss writing one for this hotel. You are guaranteed the best value for your money! The rate was not as expensive as the other hotels and yet the rooms were clean, spotless and well-maintained. The shower had good water pressure and bathroom was immaculately clean. The staff was amazing... More

I had a lovely time in Tartaruga's and in Saud Beach. I checked Tartaruga's only after my first choice hotel was already fully booked. Through tripadvisor (thank you thank you!), I found this lovely hotel, which although at a first glance come as unassuming and simple, actually turns out to be an magnificent choice! First, the room and the whole... More
