#4 of 37 Specialty lodging in Nosara
Here at Villa Tortuga we've attempted to create a vacation destination that feels just like home. We've taken all of the things that we've enjoyed from our own vacation experiences and combined them to form our dream vacation spot. Nestled near the sleepy town of Nosara, Playa Guiones is an ideal getaway for everyone. A three minute walk through the National Parklands gets you to a beautiful white sand beach with great surf and warm water. Our guests enjoy a relaxing environment where they can forget about the stress of daily life. Whether strolling along the sandy beaches, surfing, horseback riding through the jungle, or just lounging by the pool, we are immersed in one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world.

Dave and the crew here under his leadership are absolutely fantastic. We stayed at the Villas for 8 days and I must say the word stress does not exist in this place. We were present for the Christmas holidays and Jesus with Daves help made sure we had a great time, From surfing with the Nosara Surf School, (Steven Noguera) Offshore fishing, ATV'S and the list goes on. My family and I look forward to when we can return.

We booked Villa Tortuga for 2 families (7 people total) and had plenty of room. The grounds are beautiful, well manicured and clean. The pictures don't do it justice. Dave, the owner, was awesome! So helpful with nearby things to do and super friendly! Alexander, who works for him, was also fantastic! The reviews are accurate...they treat you like family and you feel like family here! Our villa was cozy and clean and had everything we needed to cook meals in. Beds were comfy and AC cold. Walking distance to everything...beach is just a short walk, restaurants, shops, etc all right there. Daily cleaning service also...was not expecting this but was so appreciative of this as we were busy everyday surfing, fishing etc it was so nice to come back to the freshly cleaned villa with our dishes put away. Loved this added perk! Don't miss...La Luna for sunset, Rosi's for lunch, Olivia's pizza (yummmm!) and Go Juice for the best smoothies in town! Dave and Alexander, thanks so much for your hospitality! You guys are the best...we'll definitely be back!

We have been staying here for the last 4 years. When you stay here you are part of their family. The owner, Dave is wonderful as well as his staff. Our entire family comes with us every year and we would not go anywhere else. Everything is walking distance, beach, restaurants and grocery store. Tina and Theresa come daily to clean your apartment. Best place to stay in a great area.

I've stayed with Dave and his crew since 2009, and it always feels like I'm staying with family. The same crew has been there for years, and they make me feel at home from the minute I arrive, until the day I leave. The grounds, the rooms and the close proximity to the beach, make it a great destination, and compared to other paces, there is value as well. I'll be back!

Great little spot close to the best beach. Excellent pool area with gorgeous landscaping. Excellent service. Daily cleaning and linens changes. You want for nothing. Dave is a superb manager and goes out of his way to make everything right. Best food at Rosie’s is just steps away. I’m not missing Philly and the snow. Can you tell ?
