The most beautiful grounds you could imagine, very close to the ocean. The home is so perfect, decorated to show the history and culture of the location. It is an extremely humid place this time of year, so the extra clothes I brought in case I was cold (HA) would have served me better if they were extra tank tops and bras. No need to pack shampoo, conditioner, or body wash; there are huge dispensers in the showers. We did run out of toilet paper, as we didn't have access to extra when the housekeeper wasn't there, but she does come daily except Sunday. There is plenty of sleeping space: 2 king and 1 queen plus 2 twin trundle beds under the couches, and the couches themselves are about the same size as the trundle beds. The WIFI is very unpredictable, so I wish I had brought some cards and games to play. The pool is small but perfect for my swimming kids--about 5' deep with a shelf for sitting on to cool off. I loved to lay in the sun in it. There is an amazing BBQ/eating area next to the pool. I suggest bringing a cooler full of meat/veggies/fruit for your trip and cooking and eating outside with the most beautiful sunsets ever as your view every night. I would LOVE to come back!

I really do not know where to begin. We loved everything about our stay at Villa Tortuga! Adriana is an awesome host, she helped us with anything we needed,
from the time we booked, the day we arrived, and till the day we departed.
Ismeal (Mayo), and Chela are the dynamic duo. Cheala with taking care of the inside of the villa, and making coconut treats for the four of us (yummy). Mayo taking care of the outside of the Villa, the grounds are beautiful, and immaculately kept. He also arranged our sunset horse back ride, massages for the ladies, and a fishing trip for the guys, These two are just a part of what makes Villa Tortuga so special. The villa itself was just perfect, for the four of us. Pictures don't do it
justice. The beach is wonderful, and most days we were the only people on it. Great for long walks in the morning, and watching the amazing sunsets over the Pacific in the evening. If you are looking for a peaceful, quiet, relaxing vacation
experience Villa Tortuga is paradise found.
Thank you Adriana, for opening your beautiful home to us.

Best Vacation Ever!
Our family takes trips to beach houses with staff in Mexico yearly - for the last 5 years. This was all of our favorite, by far.
The primary difference is the staff. Chella, Mayo, and Mario were unbelievably warm, friendly, and anticipated our needs/wants/desires before we even knew we had them ourselves! I actually almost cried saying goodbye because as a mom, it was AMAZING to have someone truly take care of ME for a week :) Mayo got us kayaks when we needed them, helped us find Platanitos beach to have an AMAZING sunset beach experience, translated for us, and generally kept the house in beautiful shape. Chella was a fantastic cook and really really aimed to please. We only ate certain food and she went above and beyond to make beautiful vegitarian and pescatarian dishes for us (when it was different than the prescribed menu). While we were there the dishwasher stopped working and Chella took over and did the dishes with a smile on her face every day (and we were a lot of people!).
The beds were so comfortable that we are talking about upgrading our mattress.
There were also really thoughful touches in the rooms as well.
The ocean was warm and perfect boogie boarding temperature/waves for my little kids (in lifejackets) and we will never forget releasing turtles into the water.
Mario drove us everywhere (we are used to renting a car). This was AMAZING. He was a tour guide, driver, and took so much weight off us when we went on excursions.
We are already trying to arrange our schedules to plan our trip back. Such an amazing place.
**there is spraying twice daily for bugs which made me nervous at first but the owner assured me it was eco friendly just like everything else at Playa Las Tortugas. The no seeums got each of us differently, but USE the lotions provided in the rooms and it will help tremendously.

Wow! This was the idyllic dream paradise location - large well-maintained private home located on the beach under coconut trees, the sounds of the waves to lull you to sleep. 7 miles of uninterrupted empty beach. Not much more to ask. Friendly and attentive staff. Great food if you have your meals cooked. Kayaking, surfing or swimming just out the front door. Turtle camp short walk away. Sunset release of newly hatched turtles and late night turtle egg rescue were trip highlights and made me feel I had directly helped an endangered species. Keep in mind this location is truely secluded - so plan accordingly.

Private and peaceful
The view and the proximity of the ocean was just perfect. The house was absolutely beautiful, it was spacious and well taken care of. The place was extremely safe and quiet. The only thing I would have wished for is for the pool to be bigger. I would also like to complain about the cleaning crew, although they cleaned everything well. However, they failed to replace the toilet paper and shampoo and we ended up running out. Overall though my experience was good and the place was breathtaking that I would love to see again.

Thank you Pablo for your kind review and for staying with us! Sincerest apologies for the toiletries. We haven't had this problem in the past but due to our remote location it appears that the staff did run out of supplies. We will refund your cleaning fee in order to compensate for the inconvenience. We hope to see you and your family again soon!
