Amazing home and grounds
For some reason I couldn't enter the date we arrived which was in March 2018! My family spent 8 glorious days in the home in this private oasis. It was the best trip we've ever taken. The house is beautiful and amazing. The people who help you - Chella & Ismael - are so nice and helpful. The food Chella prepared was outstanding. Having your own private pool and the beach within steps was lovely. We slept with the doors open to the sounds of waves. The town of Platanitos is close and so fun for a lunch trip. We saw baby turtles released, whales in the ocean, horseback riding on the beach! I can't say enough. LOVE LOVE LOVE this place! Will absolutely be going back as soon as possible! Thank you Villa Tortuga family!
Thank you, Steve, for your lovely review of Villa Tortuga! I am so pleased that you and your family enjoyed your stay. Very glad you got to see the baby turtles and whales...it was a little late in the season for both but fortune smiled on you!
We try very hard to make our guests' stay very pleasant. I agree that Chela and Ismael are amazing...thank you!
I hope to welcome you back soon.
Our favorite vacation spot!
I hesitantly write this review as I feel like this is our secret vacation getaway location and not sure I want to give away our secret! This was our 3rd time to Playa las Tortugas and our 1st time at Villa Tortuga. The house is beautiful, extremely well maintained and clean. The bedding is fabulous with very nice sheets - and the pillow selection is divine! We have 2 young boys and thus having our own little pool is very convenient, but the community pool is so close too. And the beach is beautiful, clean and quite. I would highly recommend getting a cook. The food is delicious and it makes for a relaxing vacation. We highly recommend the boat rides at El Tovara in the mangroves and lunch at the restaurant where they gate off an end of the river for swimming and swinging from a tree into the clearest of water. Our last visit in November, we hiked to El Cora waterfall and had it all to ourselves to take a dip - hard to find but worth the effort. We have rented a Jeep Wrangler twice and not regretted the extra cost for the drives down the bumpy dirt roads. If you're looking for a relaxing, quiet and remote location for a vacation that's great for kids - this is it.
Thank you, Dayna, it is always a pleasure to have you and your family stay at our villas!
I love that you all go out exploring, too, there are some wonderful places to see off property also!
Villa Tortuga is a great place for relaxation, meditation and fun
Villa Tortuga is a smartly designed and elegant vacation place at the best location on the beach. The spacious upstairs master suite had such a nice view of the never ending water.
Our hosts had been kind, attentive and professional - we had been pampered by Sr. Gabriel, the manager and the caretakers Ramon and Lili. We had opted for food service - and it was a good choice for us.
I highly recommend horseback riding from the villa, and the local mariachis. Ramon has taken very good care of us and our requests had all been realized for fresh milk, nice flower arrangement and a good taxi driver for outings. This is a place to have complete relaxation in a healing energy beach. We definitely are returning with our family soon.
Ideal Vacation Getaway
Our family (myself, husband, two teen boys) spent our spring break at Villa Tortuga. I wanted privacy and luxury, my husband was looking to surf and the boys needed some good beach time and ocean activities. We got it all!
The villa and grounds are as beautiful as the photos portray. Each boy had his own suite and we all had plenty of space to ourselves. The private dipping pool was ours alone, while the community pool was nearby if we had wanted more. The surf was great for boogie boarding and body surfing and all three 'boys' got up on surfboards. We also enjoyed some time sea kayaking. I loved being so close to the beach that we could see the boys from the house.
The staff was helpful, attentive and very patient with our attempts at Spanish. I recommend the shuttle to and from Villa Tortuga. The drive is long and the guarantee of A/C in the vehicle was so nice. We had no need or wish for a car the entire week. Our walk/swim to Plantanitos for ceviche and cervesas on the beach was our only time away from the house and it was a tasty and entertaining diversion.
A wonderful retreat. I highly recommend and hope to return.
If you are looking for a beautiful and spacious home to stay in, away from the crowds, on a long secluded beautiful beach with fantastic sunsets, warm very swimmable ocean, wonderful cooks, great pools, lush well maintained grounds,wifi,is very safe, then Villa Tortuga at Playa Las Tortugas is the place for you. There were mornings that I went on 6 mile walks and was the only person making tracks in the very fine sandy beach. Afternoons were spent either by the private pool or on the beach, where there were never more than 4-5 other couples or families, all at least 50 yards apart. I am almost 71 and
truly enjoyed the boogie boards in the ocean that came with the villa.
Getting to Las Tortugas is a bit of a drive, but well worth. The directions provided by Marianne are excellent. A wonderful and warm married couple, Ramon and Liliana take care of the house and grounds, and will cook fantastic meals twice a day for you, if you
choose to have that done. Some of the homeowners that stay at Las Tortugas several months a year walk the beaches daily and pick up things that have washed in from the ocean, which help to keep the beaches pristine.
Villa Tortuga is an excellent choice
Stayed at Villa Tortuga for a week in December. The house was spacious and more beautiful than the pictures. Each bedroom had it's own spacious bathroom. Lovely views from the house of the palm trees and beach which was just steps away. The Beach was wonderful. Our place had it's own private pool (solar heated) with plenty of pool furniture and was next to the community pool. The maid service and service people were very helpful and friendly. We had them cook for us a couple days and the meals were delicious. It was a wonderful week and I highly recommend Villa Tortuga.
Kayaks and canoes are available for rent at the property, walk or run along miles of sandy beach, Visit the turtle camp and release baby turtles in season, Whale watching, excellent birding in estuary,
