Clean, Comfortable room Beautiful Tropical GroundsPosted Aug 7, 2013
Pros: The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and comfortable, but my favorite part was the tropical gardens around the villas and the pool.
Cons: I wish it was closer to Akamal Bay.
Location: Akamal Bay is a great place to swim and snorkle to see turtles. Also don't miss Yal Ku Lagoon, Xel-Ha, and Tulum Myan Ruins.
If you are looking for a 5 star all inclusive resort look elsewhere; but if you want a nice clean private cottage style villa, at a reasonable price, this is the place. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and comfortable, but my favorite part was the tropical gardens around the villas. This is close to Akamal and Tulum but plan on added cost for busses and taxis to get you where you need to go because it is not close enough to walk.

Great Find in a Quiet LocationPosted Apr 19, 2013 on Hotels
This is a delightful B&B. The cottages are tasteful and include a kitchenette with frig, hotplate and toaster as well as a counter with bar stools and a table and chair. The grounds are delightful with paths meandering through the plants. My dinner of fish was the best I tasted. I would recommend taking a flashlight to help you on the garden paths at night. The pool is lovely but you must get out of it by ladder which may or may not be convenient. It is close to activities and beaches, but I would recommend a car.

Villa Tortugas : Calme et charmePosted Mar 25, 2012 on Hotels
Peut-être un peu loin du bord de plage, mais on peut y retrouver le calme. l’accueil est très chaleureux. Les propriétaires vous font une cuisine excellente dans un cadre calme et romantique.

villa tortugasPosted May 19, 2011 on Hotels
The hotel has a long way to go before I would recommend it to my friends or return myself. There is almost no cross air circulation in the room. Having to dispose of the TP in cans in the bathroom, sitting in there all day, every time you open the bathroom door makes the room smell like an outhouse. The sheets felt like sandpaper. The location is very isolated, not even convenient to the road to catch a bus. Breakfast part of B&B is a loaf of white bread with butter and jam in the fridge. Oh and coffee that you can make for yourself. I only gave it two stars because the owners seem nice enough.

solitude yes, but trapped?Posted May 15, 2011
We don't entirely disagree with the other reviews but think it is important to offer some clarifications. Most importantly there was NO complimentary shuttle on the property. Getting to the Public shuttle requires a 2k walk down a rough,dusty, gravel road to reach HWY 307 and wait for its arrival. From there you can reach the various beaches and restaurants in the area. For that reason we highly recommend renting a car. Be aware that this is a bare-bones experience- the casitas are nothing fancy and are without phone, TV, or alarm clock but are well-maintained and clean. So if rustic solitude is your thing you'll be fine.

villas tortugas: la qualité et le calme à proximité des plages de sable blancPosted May 8, 2011
nous vous recommandons tout particulièrement ce petit havre de paix proche de la plage de AKUMAL (4kms)où vous trouverez les Tortues de mer à coup sûr!! Le propriétaire est très accueillant et les petits bugalows individuels de très bonne qualité proche de la piscine vous permettront, si vous le souhaitez,de vous préparez vos propres repas. Un seul mot: idéal.

Hotel à proximité de TulumPosted Aug 17, 2010 on Hotels
Un hotel sous forme de bungalows dans un jardin exotique, avec piscine. Accueil chaleureux, chambre impeccable. Les propriétaires nous ont conseillé parmi les restaurants à proximité, et pour les loisirs aussi. Documentation disponible. Je conseille à tous d'y séjourner quelques jours, c'est très reposant.
