“Exotic, authentic, comfortable and relaxing.”

This is my second trip to Costa Rica. The first time was about three years ago. We traveled with our adult children and stayed in the spacious 3 bedroom Casa Tortuga - very comfortable and even had laundry facilities in the unit. This trip was just my husband and myself and we stayed in the one bedroom Casa del Sol. The apartments have well equipped kitchens, large bathrooms, and living rooms with TV's and DVD players. They supply your basic needs and are tastefully decorated. The grounds of the property are beautifully landscaped and tenants may enjoy the refreshing pool, lazing in hammocks or using the barbeque area. I prefer the authenticity of these smaller vacation properties over big resorts which is one of the reasons we love going to Playa Guiones. There is a long sandy beach only a 3 minute walk away, the surf is great and the town has several excellent restaurants and a mini market - all within walking distance. Dave and his staff at Villa Tortuga are extremely friendly and helpful. There are surfboard, bicycle and movie rentals on the grounds as well as a day spa offering massage services. Internet access is available. Vacationing here is a great way "get away from it all" without sacrificing modern comforts. We will definitely return.

Villa Tortuga offers something for everyone. The rooms and grounds are immaculate. There is every comfort in the villas that you may need. The Malbon family makes sure all reasonable needs are met for their guests. Internet access is available. Surfboard rentals also available. Steps away is the Gilded Iguana, which has great food served outside in a lovely setting. Highly recommended for anyone that loves a beautiful, quiet beach vacation.

New addition this year out in the pool area and we bought new pillows for all the beds to start this year off. Take care, and hope to see you soon!
