I went to Casa Playa de Turtugas a few weeks ago with some of my girlfriends for four days of pure heaven. I know the pictures look too good to be true; they aren't, the place is even more beautiful in person! It's incredibly clean and well-decorated, huge bathrooms, ocean-front balconies, and plenty of closet space in each room. Between the three floors of the house, the large pool and lounge area, three hammocks in the shade - oh and not to mention, the ocean is literally a few steps away - there is plenty of room for a large group or family to spread out.
What really makes the property special, though, is the staff. The chefs, Vicki and Alicia, greeted us in the morning with fresh coffee and fruit, during the day with a pina coladas or margaritas if we were so inclined, and lunches and dinners were made with the freshest ingredients and were always delicious. Ernesto, who manages the property, really made sure that every need of ours was met - from arranging transportation to/from the airport, to showing us how to pick out the right vegetables at the grocery store, to showing us how the house is powered (it’s completely green, solar and wind), he really cared about making sure everyone was relaxed throughout the visit. The house is about 25 minutes outside of the Cancun hotel zone, which was totally fine for us – once we got there, we really never wanted to leave! Anyways, I couldn’t recommend this place more for a family or group of friends!
