Villa Tortuga - Exclusive villa on the beach with scenic terrace & pool
Description from the manager
Villa Tortuga is an exquisite luxury estate located in the Mayan Riviera. Located on Playa del Secreto, one of the most pristine white sand beaches in the world, the sensation you experience upon discovering this hidden getaway is akin to the magic you feel when first encountering the great sea turtles for which this villa has been named. This property is a unique oasis that offers privacy and seclusion in a postcard perfect tropical ocean setting!
Imagine walking out of the ocean, across a few paces of white sand and up a short staircase to your private swimming pool. The deck includes day beds, lounge chairs, parasols and an alfresco dining area. Snorkeling gear and flotation devices are provided for fun on the water. Or perhaps a well deserved soak in the outdoor Jacuzzi? The grounds at Villa Tortuga are rounded out with a fire pit and a barbeque. The villa is wheelchair accessible. Indoors, you will find a home entertainment system, Wi-Fi access and baby equipment. You reservation includes daily housekeeping, a manager and concierge service. Guests of Villa Tortuga will also enjoy complimentary access to the nearby Beach Club that offers kayaks, boogie boards, volleyball, ping pong, horseshoes, basketball, tennis and baseball.
The interiors of Villa Tortuga are airy, bright and elegantly designed. There are various comfortable seating arrangements in the living area. The kitchen comes fully equipped with a center island and breakfast bar.
Three lovely bedrooms at Villa Tortuga accommodate up to six guests, with a maximum of four children. All of the bedrooms include en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning and ceiling fans. Each of the bedrooms allows sunlight to enter throughout the day, while you will enjoy the soundtrack of the ocean waves at night.
Playa del Secreto, or Secret Beach, is a gated sanctuary where you will find a beautiful residential community where villa owners are committed to preserving the area as an exclusive and immaculate location. Nearby activities include deep sea fishing, cave diving, Mayan ruins, jungle and canopy tours and horseback riding. Villa Tortuga is a rare place where visions and dreams have become reality. Whether you spend your days on the water, playing golf or just sipping your favorite cocktail, Villa Tortuga offers that je ne sais quoi that will leave you wanting to return again, year after year.

We had a great time at Villa Tortuga. Mauricio was extremely helpful and even delivered our meals to the villa for us for free. We never left the villa and played in the pool and on the beach. The villa itself could use a little bit of a face lift. I understand that it is in on the beach and harder to keep in tip top shape, but there were a few things that could be updated. Most of the couch cushions had tears or holes in them, cabinet doors would not close or open properly, the bathrooms were clean but the knobs on the faucets were breaking and the grout was showing rust and mildew stains. The staff was very nice and kept the place clean. It would be a SPECTACULAR place, if given a little TLC, and a few upgrades. The outside grounds by the pool, on the other hand, were perfect. The jets did not work in the hot tub, but they were trying to fix them. - Lora H., Colorado, USA

Our stay in villa Tortuga was just how all vacations should be. The house is beautiful, right on the beach and with big comfortable rooms and other areas. The staff helped us with everything we needed, from the first email, until checkout. Really nice and service minded! The only negative thing we could say was that the first night it was a lot of ants in the living room area, but then again you\'re in the middle of a jungle. We hunted them down and after that it was not much of a problem. Lot\'s of nice toys like canoes and body boards (even if one was broken) and a basketball net in the pool. They had everything you need on a good vacation. We would definitely go back! - Lina M., Illinois, USA

We had some issues finding our villa, that would be my one suggestion..make it.easier to get in touch with contact person. The staff was fantastic! Everyone was so helpful and kind. The house was well taken care of and stocked per our request. I just can\'t say enough about the staff. Everyone who worked there would stop and talk to us, ask if we needed help, point out interesting information about the property..just very pleasant. We felt very safe and had no issues whatsoever with personal safety the whole time we were in Mexico. Mauricio was so helpful and he let us know when he wouldn\'t be on site and who we could get in contact with should we need anything.

We had an awesome time! a challenge when you have 3 teens along. Our own beach, quiet and relaxing and no pressure of a resort population. Our kids loved the quick access to the hottub, pool and surf. We\'ve vacationed and enjoyed the typical things like tours, golf, and local cuisine before - we\'ve never sat at the water at night and watched the moon... or witnessed a manta ray at our feet first thing in the morning. We only wish the daylight lasted longer!

Luxury Retreats did a great job booking our vacation for us. The staff was wonderful to deal with and extremely helpful. The villa location and amenities were wonderful. The onsite staff worked very hard to please us and provide us with a great vacation. There was nothing better than to get up in the morning, make a cup of coffee and take a walk on the beach and watch the sun rise. It was a very pleasant week for all...
