This place was awesome! The house is huge and fit our larger sized party perfectly. It\'s clean and decorated very nicely! The views were amazing and there is a private pool if you aren\'t feeling like leaving the house. The staff was great! Victor was very helpful! My fiance and I stayed in the casita while we were vacationing with our friends and we loved it. Infact, we loved it so much that we are going to be staying at Villa Tortuga for our honeymoon as well. While we were there this time we did the ziplining tour and it was really fun. If you want some time in the jungle with some cool views you should try it out. Anyway long story short, I would highly recommend staying at Villa Tortuga if you want an awesome place to stay while you are in Manuel Antonio.
This place was amazing. Victor was especially helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience on my first trip to this wonderful country. It was close to everything. Did a zip-lining/repelling excursion and spent a good amount of time on the beach, even learning to surf. We even had monkeys come visit us on the property! Great views, great pool, great house. I would recommend this for anyone looking to visit costa rica! I will be back for sure!
This place was amazing! It felt very luxurious and had beautiful views.The staff was great and helped us out a lot. There was a lot of fun activities to do both on and off the beach. There was also a lot of good places to eat near the house. I am already planning my return trip!
This place is amazing we\'ve visited a lot of different places and this by far is the best the food the chef prepared was some of the best we\'ve ever had can\'t say enough
We had a fantastic week at Villa Tortuga. We were looking for a getaway from the hectic day-to-day schedules and a relaxing worry-free vacation. Villa Tortuga delivered on all fronts. The excellent service started before the vacation. Victor, the Villa manager on-site contacted us and pre-arranged our airport transportation. Upon arrival he also took care of arranging our tours of the the national park, beach days, restaurant reservations and anything else we wanted. This was all taken care of flawlessly. Manuel Antonio is a quiet town so we were happy to see the total lack of high-rises, condo complexes on the beach and chain restaurants. Instead we saw beautiful beaches, surrounded by natural forests. All of the people we met were welcoming and made the week even better. Villa Tortuga is a beautiful place located near the national park, beaches, restaurants and bars - all of which we visited. Nothing was more than 10-15 minutes away. The Villa has a great view of morning sunrises - we often sat on the deck or by the pool - drinking our morning coffee and listening to the monkeys to start the day. The staff at Villa Tortuga made all of the difference for us. It’s kept up impeccably, and then add a fantastic chef who prepared great meals for us on most nights. The fresh fruit and seafood were particularly good as you might expect in that region. I would highly recommend Villa Tortuga and we are already thinking about when we will return.
