Welcome to Casa Playa de Turtugas a 7 bedroom 7 and ½ baths approximately 8,500 square foot oceanfront estate with large meandering pool with island in center, on large lot with 70 meters (over 210 feet) of oceanfront. The house is of modern design with luxury interior that can accommodate up to 24 guests.
Recently renovated Casa Playa de Tortugas is like a boutique hotel that can accommodate up to 24 guests with a staff that will pamper you to make your stay a wonderful memorable experience. There are 7 air-conditioned bedrooms with a satellite TV in each bedroom, high speed WIFI internet accessible throughout the property, a full time professional chef/bartender who prepares meals that are just out of this world, daily maid service, Fitness Center with exercise equipment, large dining room, DVD, stereo and CD player, barbecue and water sport equipment. A Property Manager who lives nearby just down the beach is on call 24/7 to provide assistance as desired. The Property Manager can make arrangements for mariachis to play for parties, kite sailing, boat for fishing, snorkeling, yacht rental, visits to ruins, visits to theme parks and all area attractions.
A welcome meal will be served no matter what time you arrive. Also, as guests of Casa Playa de Tortugas you get free access to a nearby beach club which has a large sandy beach, turquoise water, cabanas, a restaurant and waiters to bring food and drink. Security is excellent as the property is walled, there is always staff on site and there are guard dogs, and the entire area is very safe and regularly patrolled by police.
Casa Playa de Tortugas has been professionally decorated located on Isla Blanca about a 30 minute drive from Cancun central, it provides privacy and yet is near the Cancun area attractions. It is well maintained and of exquisite design with granite surfaces, a wonderful pool area and plenty of glass and open areas with spectacular views.
We recently stayed at the Casa Playa de Turtugas from 11/1/12 to 11/8/12. We had a wonderful time, and enjoyed the house very much. It is a spacious, beautiful home - clean and well maintained. The house staff was amazing - Vicky, Alicia, and Mari met all of our needs and then some. They cooked delicious meals for us, and accommodated our gluten free diet without any problems. They anticipated our needs, greeting us in the mornings with coffee, and remembering who liked which type of fruit. They were helpful in creating the menu of meals, and getting us a grocery list. They had suggestions for us for sightseeing, and local tips, etc. We cannot say enough good things about them, if we ever return it will absolutely be because of these 3 women - they are worth their weight in gold!!
A few things are worth mentioning. The house description is a bit misleading. This is NOT a beachfront estate. It is an OCEANfront estate. The backyard ends in what is basically a cliff. There is a fence, and a sheer drop straight down to the ocean. Ernesto, the property manager, tells us that Hurricane Sandy swept away the beach days before our arrival - however, we were told that the "beach" is apparently seasonal. In the summer months there is a small bit of beach but in the winter months there is not. This was a big disappointment to us, as we had 4 small children with us who were very much looking forward to a week of playing in the sand, and "beachfront" is exactly why we picked this particular property. Fortunately, there is a small operation about 5 minutes down the road called the Pirata Morgan - you can pay a small fee and spend the day enjoying their beautiful beach. We did that twice, and it was quite nice.
About that road - also not mentioned in the description of the house. The "road" is in fact a very poorly maintained dirt road. From where the real road ends to the house is exactly a 12 minute VERY bumpy and SLOW trip by car. We found that the house was a full 45 minutes from the Cancun International Airport, and it took us about the same amount of time to get to downtown Cancun. This is misleading in the description, where they tell you it is only 25 minutes away from Cancun. Definitely not so!!
The house had some minor issues - ants run rampant, hot water was erratic in the showers, the "hot" tub was really a "whirlpool" with no heated water, etc. None of them were dealbreakers, it is a nice house. Also be aware there are 2 large dogs. They were chained.
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!
My Family and I was a group of 7 we arrived on) October 6, 2010 until October 12, 2010, and the weather this time of year was perfect.
This Casa was so beautiful and was decorated very tastefully with plenty of room.
From the time we arrived at the airport Earnesto (the property manager) was there to greet and help us was all of our need from going with us to get a rental car to taking us shopping and back to the airport when we had to leave. The rest of the staff was just as great Vicky the cook made us delicious meals and drinks every day along with help from Alice, and Jenny cleaned everyday, the pool and grounds was kept very clean by Libarto. They all made us feel very special.
However some thing that can be improved upon is the beach, it could use a little cleaning just picking up some trash would be good.
I would recommend this place to anyone who would like to just relax and be pampered.
I would love to go back again sometime.
