What would these three adventure loving ladies do? Meet in Tulume at this off the beaten path, oceanfront Villa with turtle nests in the sand of the private back yard! .....of cause!
We three had the high finish villa to ourselves with each of us having our private, ocean view, spacious bedrooms with high end on suit bathrooms. The villa included a cook and gardener. The cook prepared breakfast or dinner if we requested it. She also offered to do our laundry, and the gardener kept the shaded pool spotless. The garden featured two iguanas we loved.
This trip will always be one of my favorite trips with the long walks on the beach. How can you forget the moonshine on the waves as you fell asleep in the bedroom? I will be back!
This villa was designed and built by the owner with attention to every detail. Every room has a great view of the ocean and beautiful sand beach. You can literally watch sea turtles lay and hatch from the porch,balcony or roof. The large kitchen and dining area will meet all your needs. Each of the three master suites is unique but all are fantastic. After a workout in the exercise room, one can cool off in the very private swimming pool or go up on the roof for a barbecue or relax on the hammocks. From there you can see forever! The location offers quiet privacy yet is close to all of Tulum's restaurants and tourist attractions. The service was both excellent and friendly.
This is my fourth time visiting Corazon de la Tortuga. I write this review while sitting on the terrace of the villa, admiring the beautiful Caribbean Sea. I have visited this beautiful villa at different times of the year and always there is something new to experience. Corazon de la Tortuga is an easy drive from the Cancun airport. The villa's location offers close proximity to a variety of "must see" sites in the area. Xel Ha, Dos Ojos, Casa Cenotes, Tulum Ruins, Coba Ruins, Tulum beaches and many other areas of interest are a short drive from the villa. I keep coming back to try to see it all!
There is something for everyone here. I have visited with friends, family and just me and my spouse. The management and staff of the villa are very service oriented. You get everything from concierge service to an impeccably clean and beautiful home to enjoy at your leisure. I now feel like one of the family here as the same staff has greeted me for the last four years of my visits. Special requests, such as spa or chef services are greeted with immediate attention. I travel all over the world but no where have I found such caring attention to details.
Also, a special bonus not to be duplicated anywhere is turtle season. The beach in front of the villa is a turtle nesting ground for hundreds of marine turtles. The villa management takes great care to protect and preserve this habitat , and all the while you, as a guest, can experience these amazing creatures nesting and the babies hatching. It is nothing short of incredible.
I will keep returning to tranquil atmosphere that defines Corazon de la Tortuga as it is truly the heart of the turtle.
Suggestions for guests....you will want to rent a car as there is so much to do around the villa, if you would like chef services, book before your arrival, come and enjoy all there is to offer!!!
