The home was impeccable!

I enjoyed my stay along with family and friends at casa tortuga. The home was beautiful, the food was delicious and the service was amazing. Thanks you Oscar and the rest of the staff!! We can't wait to do it again next year.

More than expected

  • 5 of 5

We used Casa de las Tortugas as our home base for a family gathering of 13. We'd seen the photos on the web site but gorgeous as they are, they didn't do justice to the whole compound. A great feature of the property is the number of gathering places available and at the same time plenty of areas to get away from the crowd when needed.

We felt at home the entire week and rather coddled by the staff. Kudos to Oscar for his organization and the personal service he provided and to Miss Rosa for all the wonderful meals she cooked. Luckily we had my Spanish-fluent niece along to explain to Rosa that we needed considerably less food than she was preparing for us. And the work by the gardeners and housekeepers was unobtrusive and perfectly done.

Super house and staff

  • 5 of 5

We used this as a family retreat for ages 3-91 and found it ideal as a place to relax, paint and enjoy SMA. Several blocks from the main square, it has bedrooms to accommodate almost any situation. Even with 10 of us in residence, it was spacious and comfortable. The mature trees and well tended gardens provide great beauty, dappled sunlight and fresh flowers. The house is very comfortable but not overwrought, and the staff are outstanding including the gardeners. Our special thanks to Oscar for your attentiveness and to Elvia for superb meals and chiles nogadas beyond great, and for their special attention to our children! We had a great retreat - thank you! We look forward to returning to SMA and Las Tortugas!

A glorious retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with spacious bedrooms and a lovely staff. The location was ideal, walking distance to town. The outside area was also very lovely, with several gardens and terraces. Oscar was a wonderful host on the owner's behalf. I would definitely return to this villa and also recommend it to friends.

Stunning property with an outstanding staff!

  • 5 of 5

Casa de las Tortugas provides a relaxing, serene getaway. The home is appointed with beautiful furniture and artwork. The rooms and grounds provide a level of privacy you wouldn't expect when sharing a home with 12 other people. The rooftop rose gardens are tended to lovingly and the second level gardens provide a million dollar view of the parish church in the town center. The house manager, Oscar and the rest of the staff are very friendly and eager to accommodate our requests. I would go back and vacation in this house again in a heartbeat!

The favorite Casa of our whole group!

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing. I have been to San Miguel many times but this was my first time in this Casa. It's so beautiful and even with 10 people in the house you feel like you have tons of privacy. The staff is amazing and handles anything you need including amazing breakfasts every morning and fresh guacamole and pitchers of margaritas at cocktail time! And when we decided to have lunch in it was perfect. We had a cocktail party one night and everyone agreed it was their favorite Casa.

From the beautiful pool, the amazing gardens and the rooftop decks with amazing views it was almost impossible to enjoy all of it in just one week so next time I'm staying longer!!

One other great thing is that the majority of the house is on the ground floor so that if you have people who can't climb tons of stairs it works perfectly. Also it's a 5 minute walk to town.

I couldn't recommend this house more. Thanks for making my big birthday bash a huge success!
