Casa de Tortugas was amazing. Our family of 6 stayed in the La Familia suite for a week. Everything about this place was great. The pool, the gardens, the location, the well stocked kitchen, and the service. The upper deck has wonderful views and is a perfect place to relax with a book and a margarita. It is a short... More

We live in Mexico and have visited many beach locations in search of the best place to let US family members escape the dismal winter weather there. This was our second stay at Casa de Tortugas and our third visit to Chacala, which is by far our favorite Pacific Coast destination. The only thing better than being in Chacala is... More

We recently spent 10 days in Chacala at Casa de Tortugas. It was a wonderful holiday. The accommodation is great (comfortable beds!) The garden and pool are exquisite and well maintained. The house keeper is wonderful and the property manager Javier was at the house every day to ensure that everything was running smoothly and to answer any questions. The... More

I honestly want to keep this little paradise to myself, but in the interest of promoting business for Casa de Tortugas and the village of Chacala, I have to admit that this is a superb place to stay. The landscaping is so beautiful and the pool is lovely. The rooms are whimsical and artistic. The palapa rooftop patio was a... More

I adore Casa de Tortugas! I have rented the entire villa to host yoga retreats for the past three years. Everyone has loved the comfortable home on the hillside above the sea and everyone has adored the town. This is charming Mexico where families live the simple life and welcome you with open arms. Tortugas is a welcome change to... More

We spent three wonderful days at Casa de Tortugas. It totally exceeded all of our expectations. The room was very clean and comfortable and the bathroom was beautiful. We used the outdoor kitchen and really appreciated everything that was provided for dishes and cookware, basics like salt and napkins, and soap to wash up. The pool was awesome and so... More

We loved everything about the trip. The house, room, pool and grounds were beautiful and comfortable. The beach and Marina are a stone’s throw from the house. The town is an easy 5 minute walk from the house. The town is quiet and layed back. The local restaurants and seafood were awesome. The locals are very friendly and helpful with... More

Love this place. This was the second time we went for a visit. Took this time some friends of ours from that never been to Mexico. Very relaxing place, very affordable and if you want to get away from the crazy hectic lifestyle of the Bay Area, this is the place for you. I suggest renting the top floor, rooms... More

We spent 10 days here in August and had a great time. Chacala is a gem, probably on the verge of being discovered. But for now, this sleepy little beach village is a treat. The beach and water were un-crowded and wonderful. Casa de Tortugas was a great place to stay. We had two of the upstairs rooms. They are... More

Our reservation was confirmed. We paid in advance, in full, to the (wonderful) rental agent. Very shortly before our vacation, she emailed us to say the (unconcerned) owner had rented the house to his friends. They had our money & we had no place to stay. She offered to find us other accomodations, but that close to our departure there... More

timetoexplore, Public Relations Manager at Casa de Tortugas, responded to this review

Just a note that since this review, Casa de Tortugas was purchased by new, very involved and customer-service oriented owners. It changed hands in August 2009, and underwent an extensive remodel and upgrade. The owners, the wonderful property manager Javier, and caring housekeeper Mary work very hard to make sure guests have an outstanding experience. More
