We stayed here at Villa Tortga in October 2004, in honor of our 10th wedding anniversary. The accommodations and proximity to the water was amazing! One of the most wonderful villas we have rented to date. It is a rather remote location that you need to travel down a dirt and gravel road to get to, which takes you through a stretch of Mexican jungle where we saw several monkeys on our drive into the development. It was very romantic location and we were literally foot steps to the beach and water. Having our own pool was FABULOUS, but be aware that there are 3 other townhouse / villas immediately adjacent to Villa Tortuga. Unfortunately, there is not any partitioning between each of the pools, each of the 4 villas have their own pool. However, it would obstruct the panoramic water views if there were partitions or fencing surrounding the pools. I can see from the photos here that the accommodations, that it has been well cared for and updated since our trip there 12+ years ago. I HIGHLY recommend this villa as a fabulous vacation destination. It is a short drive (15-20 minutes staight wes) to Playa Del Carmen, which is very charming. Cancun was a 30 - 40 minute drive north from Playa Del Carmen. Personally, I found Cancun to be highly over rated. It is great for those Spring Breaker types in their 20's. But I believe those ages 35+, would be happier in the Playa Del Secreto / Playa Del Carmen area.
