Our family of 8 adults and 5 children spent a week in Villa Turquesa. Our host was very gracious and accommodating. The house and furnishings were lovely. The pool was the perfect size for the five young children. We rented the whole house so there was more than enough space. And then we learned one of the ACs did not work well. Unfortunately, that one was in the master suite. It was checked out and we were told it was fine but the room never cooled off. No matter, this spacious room had a hammock by the windows overlooking the sea. It became the spot disappear from the fray and was a beautiful way to relax to the sound of the waves...or the children in the pool below..
We were fortunate to be there during the turtle nesting/hatching season. We never saw the turtles hatch but we found shells on our beach walks. On our last night, we saw a mama turtle come ashore and we watched in reverent silence as she dug her nest and laid her eggs.
We booked this property through a management company. The listing offered dinner upon arrival, massages, and a couple of excursions included in the price. When you book this property, make sure you confirm with the management company the options you want. If you don't, the options won't be offered.
One more thing to consider about the area - not just this property - the Sargasso seaweed was everywhere. The homeowner's association had people trying to keep it at bay by manually hauling it away, but there was just too much. Cleaning the beaches was a true Sisyphean task. We liked kayaking, so we just slogged through a few feet of the seaweed to reach the most beautiful, clear, warm water.
