About the property

Thank you for your interest in staying at Tortuga! Tortuga is a villa located at Fairway Courts, a gated community at the heart of the world-renowned Palmas del Mar, a beach resort and golf course nested on the southeast corner of the island in the town of Humacao, Puerto Rico. Palmas del Mar is located about 45-50 minutes from San Juan International Airport.

The villa has ample room, a very spacious living space with high ceilings, a master bedroom and a guestroom. The master bedroom has a sliding door with access to the terrace/balcony. The guest bedroom is actually a lockout room with a kitchenette and has it's own bathroom. There are 2 full beds in the guest room. The villa can sleep 4-6 people comfortably.

From the balcony you get a serene view of a pond and neatly kept lawn dotted by tall palm trees. The pond has actual real wildlife in it (such as turtles, fish, birds). Turtle translated to Spanish is Tortuga, hence the name of this villa.

Being at the heart of Palmas del Mar, Fairway Courts is located within walking distance to many of the resort's amenities:

1. Golf Course, the villa is located between the 5th and 9th holes on one of the two championship 18-holes golf courses inside Palmas del Mar. The villa even comes equipped with its own parking spot for a golf cart. For Golf cart rentals please contact me for more info.

2. Tennis Club, the largest tennis facility in the whole Caribbean (20 courts in total; 2 artificial grass Omni Courts, 4 Har-Tru clay courts and 14 hard courts, many of which are lighted for night play. Fun fact: you can actually see some of the courts from the villa's balcony. Use the guest's keycard to access the tennis courts from Fairway Courts.

3. Windham Garden Hotel & Casino, the hotel is down the street from Fairway Courts, an easy walk or 1-minute drive.

4. the beach, it is also within walking distance or a short drive (there are more than 2 miles long of sandy beach). Use the guest's keycard to access the beach from the Fairway Courts, there's no need to drive. The beach is approximately about 10 mins walk.

5. Palmanova Plaza, a small shopping mall with a supermarket, stores, bank and office spaces among other services.

In addition to the above, Palmas del Mar has a Yacht Club, its own bilingual school K through 12 grade, 15 restaurants and an equestrian center with modern installations.

Just a short drive away from Palmas del Mar you can find many top attractions such as:

1. Old San Juan - less than 1 hour away from Palmas del Mar

2. El Yunque National Forest - a rain forest with many hiking trails and waterfalls, a must-see from any visitor to Puerto Rico

3. Luquillo Beach

4. Fajardo Bioluminescent Bay Tour

5. Vieques and Culebras (Puerto Rico's Virgin Islands) with stunning blue water and white sandy beaches. Flamenco Beach in the island/town of Culebra is considered among the top ten beaches in the world. There are boats charters from the Marina at Palmas del Mar or you can take a 14-min charter flight from nearby town of Ceiba with daily departures.

A great vacation in a great villa!

  • 5 of 5

Our villa was an ideal “headquarters” for our week-long vacation in Puerto Rico. It has a huge living room and dining area with a very nice TV, on which we were able to watch all of the games of our beloved Boston Red Sox in the evenings. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, glasses, cookware and utensils, so we were able to cook breakfast and a few odd meals over our week. When we needed something, Carlos the owner immediately jumped in to respond - once for a missing bottle opener, and when the toaster handle jammed, Carlos had a new one express-shipped and toasting our bagels only a day later!

The bedrooms are both spacious and very comfortable - I don’t know what it was about the mattress, but it was just right. The master bedroom has a sliding door out to a huge, nicely furnished balcony overlooking a pond full of turtles and other wildlife. It was great to go out there while it rained and just relax!

We didn’t spend much time anywhere else inside Palmas del Mar, but there is a shopping area we went to once, and the grounds are certainly beautiful! Watch for iguanas (big ones), co-qui frogs (well, listen for them), and what looked like a white cockatoo that seems to live in the neighborhood. The night skies are great also, thanks to the clear air!

I really am glad I booked with Carlos, and would definitely do so again!

The pictures do not do it justice, great place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a little concerned staying after the hurricane not know if the place would be as presented. But the place was better than we could have hoped for. My wife expressed that she felt like she was staying in a spa resort! In a great area close to the pool and accommodations were excellent! Everything you need. The owner contacted us quickly and sent a welcome packet with all the information we needed as soon as we booked. Directions brought us straight to the location. We would definitely stay here again! Thanks
