Couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home for one week, 2 families both with 2 kids (ages 5 and 8). It was perfect! The pool was a big hit and provided lots of entertainment when we were home. Very comfortable home. There were several highlights of staying in the house. The turtles laying eggs on the beach-every night we saw several of them and it was a truly magical experience. The housekeeper and groundskeeper were the most friendly sweetest people. The woman who lives on the property was beyond helpful. We had a chef, Irma come in for 3 nights and she was amazing to say the least-the food was incredible and so was the service! I really can't say enough good things about our experience staying here. Highly suggest to anyone looking for a wonderful home to stay in Tulum.

Fantastic Luxury Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from a week at Corozon De La Tortuga which we shared with another couple an their two younger daughters (9 and 4). The house is beautiful with very high-grade furniture and uniqure architectural touches made from very high quality materials. You get the feeling that a lot of thought went into the design and construction of this wonderful house and it has held up very well - still looking new in it's ocean-front location.

This was my first time staying in the Tulum area as we had friend's down the beach celebrating a birthday - having stayed in the Akumal area for the last 6 visits. I can say that this area is definitely a step up in all areas that originally attracted me to Akumal 10 years ago - privacy, ocean-front villas, beachfront restaurants with very good food, proximity to other attractions along highway 307, value.

The owner and staff really go out of their way to meet requests and help to make you feel at home and provide details if it is your first visit. We took advantage of the chef services on 4 occasions and had 4 wonderful meals and a very good value.

We were always looking forward to get back home to Corozon De La Tortuga after a day of adventures up and down the coast!

A Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a very memorable 14 days stay in Tulum, staying at the gorgeous beach front villa Corazon de la Tortuga (Turtle Heart Villa). The property is just incredible with many high-lights including secluded but safe location, lovely spaces with comfortable beds and stunning bathrooms, beautiful pool and surroundings, mins from tavernas and cenotes, but the best is being able to sit on the villa steps and watch the sea turtles making their way to the beach to make their nests and lay eggs and subsequently watching the eggs hatch and the wee baby turtles make their way to the ocean. A truly magical and privileged experience. The villa manager and staff were outstanding, nothing was too much trouble. The house and rooms were cleaned to a very high standard daily and for a small fee our laundry washed and folded. We stayed in the villa with friends and 3 children under 5 and it was a more than comfortable and safe environment. We used the chef services a couple of nights, the food was delicious and it was a treat to be waited on without having to leave the house! There are so many exciting things to do around the area, Explor and Xel Ha were particular highlights as was the Tulum Ruins and awe inspiring Chichen Itza (one of the 7 new wonders of the world). I would not hesitate in recommending Corazon de la Tortuga to anyone wanting to explore this beautiful part of the world and thank Zubet and Francesca for helping make our stay comfortable and worry free.

This property is a knockout. The beach and pool are beautiful with a non- stop ocean breeze. This is a favorite spot for sea turtles to nest and hatch. It was my first opportunity to see these great creatures laying, and I can't wait to get back to see them hatching. A short walk will get you to an incredible cenote/dive shop or to a beach lunch of fresh fish fried whole to a crispy brown. The friendly staff is eager to please.

Week in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Corazon de la Tortuga, for the 6 of us, was the PERFECT place to stay in the Tulum/Akumal area! It is just a bit away from any towns, creating a "get away from it all" feeling, yet only 10 minutes or less to Tulum for shopping, and Akumal, a quaint little beach town with great snorkeling/diving, (and cute shops)! Their are many Cenotes and tours very near by and also great and close proximity to the Tulum and Coba archeological sites. The Blue Sky Pizza place just down the road was easy, and great food for a reasonable price, and just across from the Cenote! We used the beautiful and extensively equipped kitchen most of the time, as it was such a joy to cook in such a magnificent kitchen and home.

The most amazing thing about the homes location, was the turtles nesting on the home's beach EVERY night while we were there! Four to Eight of them layed their eggs in carefully selected sites every night we were there, and tanks to Zubet's expert guidance, we were able to witness this without disturbing them. It is an experience none of us will ever forget! My boys and I made our way through the surf and snorkeled in the reef off the beach a few times and saw great sea life... the turtles that were waiting to lay, sea fans, sponges, larger reef fish, corals, etc. If you plan to do this here bring full foot coverage fins, or fins with booties, as the entry and exit is over rock and coral. Plan your entry and exit point for the area with the fewest breakers for best ease of access.

The home itself is superbly laid out and furnished with beautiful hand crafted furnishings to accomodate three separate and private sleeping and bathing areas, with perfectly furnished and confortable "common spaces" in between. The selection of movies for the home theater in the upper living area was great, and provided entertainment when we wanted to come in from seeing the turtles at night. Be sure also, to bring your i-pod to connect to the home's completely inter-wired sound system, even providing music to the pool area and incredible roof patio if you desire.

Of all the many places by the sea I've stayed in my life, this is the only one in which I was torn as to whether to stay inside, or out on the veranda listening to the sea... It was THAT nice an accomodation!

Of all the places we have...

  • 5 of 5

Of all the places we have stayed in

Mexico and around the world, Corazon de

la Tortuga

was a winner! Our gracious hostess,

Zubet was most friendly and welcoming,

her recommendations

for sightseeing and dining were perfect.

The staff was efficient and friendly and

our chef made dining

at home a real treat.

Corazon de la Tortuga is a beautiful

property and a perfect

location for sightseeing. With all the

turtles nesting this

wonderful peaceful home certainly lived

up to its name.

Well, I hope we didn't leave you in any

doubt about how much

we enjoyed our stay, and how much we

appreciated your hospitality

and thoughtfulness. So, thank you once

again for a memorable holiday.

We hope to return one day, and see the

turtles hatch.
