Tartaruga's Hotel and Pagudpud Yacht Club Restaurant
Ranked #1 of 34 Pagudpud B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 6, 2014

My girlfriend and me stayed here for three days in late Novemeber. Payment were all arranged before hand with ease and lots of communication via email with owners. We arrived very early in the morning after an overnight bus ride. They were awake and had room ready for us. It's lovely eight room property with an small dining area insidea and large outdoor dining area. The hotel is family run and the entire staff is extremely friendly and accomodating. They make the stay all the more enjoyable. Due to the constant rain, we stayed and ate a lot here. Great food, as it's all homegrown, with some of the best garlic rice I have ever eaten.
I cant rave enough about the hotel and should we make our way to Pagupud again, we will definitely stay here.

Thanks to Tripadvisor we decided to stay at Tartaruga's. No bad reviews, I thought it was too good to be true. But it lived up to the reviews and much more! How clean is the place? - I can walk barefoot even in the lobby and dining areas. How exceptional is the service? - the staff prepared Christmas gifts and invited guests who stayed Christmas Eve to Noche Buena. How good is the food? - we ate all (except for 1 dinner) here and each meal was YUM (thanks to Chef Nelly). Their dessert needs some improvement though I am not complaining at all. And please don't mind that it is not located at the beach front. It's a very short walk to the entrance of the Saud Municipal Beach where the great span of white sand welcomes you.

Room Tip: Bad Globe and Smart signals in the rooms.

This place is a gem. Service by the girls here is exceptional. Very friendly and accommodating. The Accomodation is not beachfront but it's a 5 minute walk to Saud Beach. The rooms are spotlessly clean.

To visit Saud Beach there is an entrance fee though of 100 Php. Saud Beach is beautiful with no crowds. It is also a very safe beach as the waves are not large as compared to the Blue Lagoon.

Only dined once at the hotel restaurant and could only describe the food as average.

Best room is at the rear of the hotel which is detached and offers the best privacy but has no wifi. Didn't find this an issue as we used the wifi at the restaurant located at the front restaurant.

My only criticism is that we returned from a tour on our first day and noticed our room wasn't serviced. We were informed that we need to inform reception if we require the room to be serviced. Quite frankly I thought this was a given. Upon requesting that our room be serviced the service could only be described as a rush job. Bins were not emptied, toiletres not replenished, bottled water not replaced and dirty dishes not replaced.

All the same a highly recommended place to stay in Pagudpud.

Room Tip: Choose the detached Accomodation located at the rear of the property for extra privacy.

This review is long overdue. Stayed with family on 21 April. Booked the rooms via net. Professional service. Very attentive and friendly staff. Rooms are super clean. Although not beach frontage, the location to saud beach is just under 2 mins walk. Very Quiet. We enjoyed our stay. It's pricey but it's worth it. Highly recommended.

Me & wife stayed in this boutique hotel 6th - 9th Sep. 2013, our first time in Ilocos Region. From inquiry (via net) till reservation - they are very helpful. With the hotel's assistance a reliable transport and professional tour guide / driver has been provided to us. At the time we reached in the hotel, a very warm welcome given to us by the staff and personalized services. We have noticed a very clean atmosphere from the entrance till inside the room. We are very thankful we have found this place and we should thank all the staff for their superb hospitality, service with smile and well trained comparable to professional staff of 5-star hotel (like Water Front Hotel & Casino at Cebu). Appreciation to be given also to the Management of this hotel in maintaining above standard cleanliness & orderliness not only the guest rooms but also the facilities. It is worth to mention also the quality of foods they have served to us - superb at reasonable cost. Even the net facility - fast and strong signal considering the remote location.
Sure we will be back together with our twin sons. Kindly reserve two rooms on the dates 16th - 18th April 214.

I didn't stay here but I had my meals here. Got to see the rooms and it looks really nice. Good value for money if you're sharing the room. Next time I go to Saud, I'll definitely stay here. The staff are very friendly too!

We were lucky to have found a place to stay in Pagudpud for three days that immediately felt like home. We were met by friendly smiles and personally attended to by the owner. She is a lovely petite lady who makes sure all her guests are comfy. If you are lucky to book a room in this hotel (limited rooms only, sorry!) you will find the room to be very clean, well maintained and with very nice beddings. They even have branded toiletries for the guests to use. The room is small, but one of their big rooms at the back fit four of us quite comfortably. It is so comfortable, you would find yourself just wanting to hang out in the room, instead of going to the beach. They also have a lounge at the back if you just want to read a book.
They also serve the best food!They have daily specials which include fresh seafood. Their menu is so comprehensive, we found ourselves just wanting to eat in the hotel the whole time. They also gave my boyfriend a special crepe cake to greet him for his birthday.
All these small gestures add up to a very fulfilling experience. I will always consider Tartaruga our home in Pagudpud :)
