Recent Playa Las Tortugas (Turtle Beach) reviews

  • Great beach house with local Mexican vibe

    "We had an amazing holiday at the Chacala Beach house. As two families we wanted the convenience of an all inclusive on the beach but with flexibility for food and excursions. We found it ALL for kids 3-13 years old with interests ranging form boogie boarding, sand castle building, swimming, fishing, hiking, volley ball, and just hanging out. Location - right on a beautiful beach (nicer than Sayulita's) with amazing sunsets and unlike most other houses in Chalcala, just outside the compound gates are groceries, tortilla-ria, juice bar, surfer pizza (they deliver!) - everything you need. All of the locals are really friendly without being pushy and accommodate those without Spanish with friendly smiles. We ran a tab with the restaurant next door to have nachos and beverages delivered in the afternoon, breakfast buffet and great dinners at affordable prices and they take credit cards, otherwise bring pesos. Or choose to eat in and the owners insist you let Claudia, the daily housekeeper, do ALL of the dishes. House - right on the beach with great sunset view and we felt very safe and comfortable with the indoor and outdoor layout. Beds are comfortable, rooms are spacious and each have an en-suite . Sleeping arrangements are flexible, but each bedroom opens and locks to the outdoor compound area. So, with young children who need night access to their parents the casita is perfect with 1 bedroom, plenty of sleeping space for 3 children and a kitchen. Main Kitchen is small but comfortable, outdoor dinning space is great, good lounge chairs, but no couch or lounge zone inside. We loved that the house came with beach towels, boogie boards, beach toys and private palapas on the beach. Activities - we did excursions every other day including hiking the local volcano, fishing with Roberto (caught 3 yellow fin tuna in 2 hours!), hike to petroglyphs, local market day at la Penita and a great trip to San Blas to take a river tour to see crocodiles, birds, turtles followed by a swim - all were fun for all ages and very chill. Transportation - as a group of 9 we highly recommend contacting Trini's Shuttle Service. Juan met us at the airport, took us on all the excursions on our time and had lots of local knowledge and advice including great inexpensive restaurants and all without the "tour" feel. The convenience was amazing and the cost was less than renting cars / van. Fun village, great beach and plenty to do - without the hassles of crowded all-inclusives."

  • Villa Mananitas- Paradise

    "My family just returned from Playa Las Tortugas, and our 7 night stay at Villa Mananitas. We had an absolutely spectacular time, from the 100 ft walk to the beach, to the warm Pacific waters, to the gorgeous villa, to the stunning pool, it was all perfect. The staff (with a special "thank you" to Pascual and Chela) was there for our every need. We had 3 dinners and 3 breakfasts cooked for us and they were all delicious. The landscaping was flawless, and our gardener tended to the pool and grounds every morning. You could never leave the villa and have the time of your life, but the beach is fantastic. We had a great time doing the following- wading across to have lunch at Platanitos, a half-day of fishing out of Platanitos, an afternoon kayak session in the estuary, and a 2 hr horseback ride along the empty beach. We will be back. One note- the 3rd bedroom is separate from the main house, so not ideally suited for a young child to sleep in alone. But nicely appointed with a private restroom and shower."

  • Paradise Found

    "Can't wait to return to this hidden gem! Wonderful time was had by all. Eli was fantastic to work with during the booking process. Onsite staff was amazing as well. If you want to feel like you found paradise this is the place to go! Secluded beach, palm trees for as far as they eye can see, mountains beyond that and you might even find yourself caught up in a cattle drive heading down the dirt road to this destination!"

  • Fantastic vacation

    "We could not have picked a more perfect spot. Villa Reyes is a dream come true. The house is lovely and very large. We had enough place for our family of five. We were there two weeks in July 2016. The ground is beautifully lanscaped, very well maintened and very safe. The two pools are amazing too. Pictures are accurate. The beach was perfect. It is secluded, clean and offer 5 miles of beautiful sand. There's no rock, also no weeds. Our 3 boys (12,12 and 14 years) loved to play and surf in the waves. Kayaking in the estuary was also great. The staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Thanks again Miguel for your thoughtfull advises, José for providing us with any needs and dear Miriam for keeping the house and our things very cleaned and preparing our family very tasty Mexican food. We were lucky, the owner Ken was there at the same time. He was generous with his time and always answered our many questions and requests. For sure, we will repeat."
