Second pool is quite large and located in the lowest deck. **Food and drinks: Meals are cooked by our Chef (2 meals a day for $75 per day) If the third meal is required, we will charge $20 extra per day.

Or, if you prefer, you could do your own shopping. Before you arrival, we will ask you of any food preferences and or restrictions so we can prepare the menus for your stay

A truly beautiful and refreshing experience!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, first of all, Puerto Vallarta is such an amazing place. Just a short ride outside of the downtown area, Villa Tortugas is a true gem of a place to stay. We went away for my birthday to just turn off and embrace the sunshine with the family and I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

The house is huge and the staff was amazing. The chef prepared amazing food and the staff went out of there way to take care of us with anything we needed. All we had to do was ask and they were there.

The local beach in Mismaloya became like a second home. It was right down the block and very reasonable.

Overall, I would highly recommend staying here and enjoying a piece of the Mexican paradise. I have really never ever been somewhere quite like this before.

Peaceful and incredible views

  • 5 of 5

When we walked into the house we thought, this can’t be someone’s house! It is placed in the most incredible location, the staff is attentive and kind, the food was delicious. We have no complaints and will be back with our kids next year!

Private paradise

  • 5 of 5

If you are hesitating to make reservations--don't worry!

The setting is as beautiful, and the house is as lovely, as in the photos! We don't speak Spanish, but the friendly staff helped us communicate. And Paulette, the owner, was easily available by phone. Such a treat to wake up to the aroma of breakfast, and in the evening come in to a delicious dinner! The chauffeur took us back and forth to the beach. It was easy to take the bus into town.

And, I drank freely from the house faucets, with no stomach problems!

This house will MAKE your trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Villa Tortugas. Everything that people say about this place being incredible is true. 6 floors (with an elevator), 2 pools one off the kitchen for lounging while enjoying drinks and appetizers, and a larger pool on the bottom floor (with an outdoor kitchen). The house overlooks the ocean, with beautiful views, especially sunsets, and some of our family went snorkling right from the house. I can't tell you how much I recommend using the chef to make you meals. Gloria, her daughter Corrine and Yolanda cooked for us (and cleaned every day, which is included). After one meal you will realize you don't want to waste time trying to find a good restaurant in town. They are amazing and their drinks (fresh fruit margaritas) and appetizers (homemade guacamole and queso fundido) are out of this world. It is a 20-30 min drive into town, so I would recommend doing only breakfast and dinner at the house on the days you are sightseeing. Boca Beach is about 2 miles south down the road from the house. There are many boats there that you can rent to take you around to wherever you'd like to go. We also went horsebackriding with Pedro, which is also nearby (by the zoo), I would recommend doing that as well. Yolanda, one of the housekeepers can set you up with that. My boys went fishing with a guy named Chava, at the beach by the hotels (forget what it's called, but also close to the zoo), they also had a great time. When dining in town I would recommend Barcelona Tapas, and for dining on the beach, Vista Grill. Both are very nice and affordable. Like the title says, this house will MAKE your trip!

Eight of us (4 couples) just returned from a dream vacation spent at Villa Tortugas. I had coordinated a group trip with friends to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday. Most of us are seasoned travelers and therefore with high travel standards. Fortunately Villa Tortugas wildly surpassed all of our expectations. We didn't want to come back home!

The location is absolutely ideal. Although we were spoiled by the views, the beach and downtown area is not far at all. The property is designed extremely well with an open layout, is magnificently decorated, equipped with really cool outdoor night lighting, extremely clean, and comes with exhilarating views of the bay, and the mountains. The heated infinity pool’s (yes 2 of them) are so inviting we spent over half our time here. In fact we canceled many of our excursions because we were so happy at the villa!

The staff is attentive, friendly and Gloria is spectacular. We had plenty of fresh fruits, non-stop fresh guacamole, salsa, margaritas and freshly made drinks, not to mention gourmet dinners. You can order off a menu or just ask the staff to make whatever you want. The staff goes shopping daily and prepares your meals. You will love this paradise!
