Villa Tortuga
Reviewed 1 October 2013

I have been to Playa Guiones several times, and now stayed at Villa Tortuga 3 times. There is no better spot. All the condos are clean and well maintained! The Staff is awesome and always willing to help. Dave and the Gang will steer you to the best excursions and do anything they can to make your stay as pleasant as possible. This is a unique multi condo facility with a shared pool, as close to the beach as you can get, and stones throw to the bar at the Iquana. I highly recommend this location.

This is the Best location in Nosara. Our family has stayed here for many years and we love it every time. The folks at The Frog Pad are super helpful in getting you set up with excursions, bikes, boards, you name it.

Room Tip: Room selection depends on the size of your family.

We have been to Nosara twice, and both times we have stayed at the Casa del Sol in the Villa Tortuga. It's the perfect choice for families or couples that want a bit more privacy (and their own gorgeous pool) but still being a part of Villa Tortuga and all that they have to offer. The house is spacious and airy and has everything you need. David and all of the Villa Tortuga staff are great. Can't wait to get back.

Villa Tortuga is simply the best....
A wonderful spot, just a few short minutes to surf.
Private, convenient and beautiful...... the easiest surf trip to date !
And a pool to top it all off.
David and the Gang at Villa Tortuga were extremely helpful and professional.
I would highly recommend any of his properties to anyone looking for a 1st Class Experience.
Thanks again - and see ya next year !

This is the 4the time my family and myself have been to this area in Playa Guiones, Nosara and the 1st time we have stayed here at the Villa Tortuga with Dave Malbon...I have already booked our stay here again and have our flights for 2014 as I have yet to experience Costa Rica hospitality and connection like we had with our experience with Dave and the Villa Tortuga!!! His staff and he, himself made us feel like we were so special and our wish's were made real as they went out to make it so.....The beach, surfing, horse-back riding, restaurants, zip-lining, Howler monkeys,sunsets, shopping.solitude... Love and the people were such a blessing as it seems like were all their for the same reason....to enjoy our time with Piece & Love..!! Thanks Dave and your most fantastic crew..! Were coming back, soon!!! Blessings:Mark, Christina & family..!

This is an outstanding location to the beach. The place is very clean and well managed by David. If you have any problems or questions he is fantastic at helping you out. Villa Tortuga has a nice pool and currently is expanding to include a yoga studio which is fantastic. The Villa's are good for families, close to some great restaurants and the video store for those rainy days. We love it and have come back several times. Highly recommend!

Loved this place! Sweet location in the most beautiful place on the planet, right on the beach and within close walks to good restaurants. Fall asleep to the sound of the crashing surf and wake to the sound of howler monkeys.

A three minute walk through the National Parklands gets you to a beautiful white sand beach with great surf and warm water.
