Itour Akumal Villa Las Tortugas
Ranked #1 of 7 Akumal B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 25, 2012

We spent 2 weeks in Villa Tortugas with our children (3 and 6 years old). It was great for the children, they explored the beautiful tropical garden and enjoyed the pool. We had 2 double beds in the room, so it was comfortable for us. The hosts are discret and helpful. We were with the everyday cleaning very satisfied. The place is not at the beach (5 minutes by car), but most of the sights (Tulum, Xcaret, Xelha, caves, cenotes) are within 30 minutes and a big supermarket in Puerto Aventuras is 15 minutes.

This was our second stay at Villa Tortugas. This time we stayed for a month. For us this location is perfectly in the middle of what we like to do. A short distance from Akumal, for snorkeling with the turtles, access to restaurants, and tourist shopping. Also just a little further drive to Tulum. All of our travelling between towns was done via the "collectivo's" or taxi's.

Denis and Sylvia and their pet family are wonderful, patient hosts. You have made a beautiful home and Thank you for sharing it with us again.

We have stayed 1 week at Villa Turtugas and we simply loved it.
The owners, Sylvia and Denis are really nice, ready to do everything in their power to help you, and provide for everything you need.
We have traveled with a 10 month baby girl, and they always helped in every way possible.
The suites have a kitchen with a fridge, coffee machine, hot-sandwich machine, and gas cooker. As I cooked the vegetables and fruits, I needed the blender to mix them for the baby, and Sylvia would let me in her kitchen to use the blender or the microwave.
They recently opened a restaurant in the garden, with nice Mexican, Italian food, and you should really try the aracherra (great beef meat - Argentinian style).
The place is really quiet because isolated in a the nature, not in the touristic zone of Akumal.
It is better for you to have a car, but I think the colectivo buses can leave you at the exit from the national road, 500m from the residence (I saw people walking there). In the evening this road has no lights, so it's not really comfortable on foot in the forest, you may want to take a taxi to return.
I definitely recommend this place, it's a beautiful spot in the middle of the jungle, respectful of the nature around.

The Villa Tortugas Residence is a small, peaceful enclave at the Riviera Maya. It's located only 5 min. from Akumal beach. The atmosphere is very familiar, you will live in beautiful small "casitas" with original mexican furniture and you are being served a small breakfast every morning.
David, the owner, is extremely helpful and friendly, and the staff is incredible. I will never forget those nights sitting by the pool, enjoying the peaceful silence. Thank you for a wonderful time in Akumal!

This is a small property run by an Italian couple, located in the jungle, a couple of kilometers away from the Akumal beach. The property is very well taken care of, and the rooms (which are actually small bungalow-type buildings, 6 in total, I think) are basic but fairly comfortable (the kitchenette was a nice extra). The pool is a great feature, as is the Italian hospitality - the drinks, the food, the smiles are all genuine.
This place is for those seeking total relaxation and silence.

This the place to go an relax after a busy day. Very peaceful and quiet, each night was treat after running around all day to come back and sit on the porch with a glass of wine. There is an outdoor restuarant which features mexican and Italian food. They provide you with basic ingredients for breakfast, so each morning started with my coffee and a good book on the porch. Will definitely recommend this place, Silvia and Denis were gracious hosts.

We would go there again. Denis and Silvia were so helpful and informative. They go out of their way. We loved the place. It was quiet and we made our own breakfasts in the room, they provided some foods to make a good breakfast. It was nice to get to know other guests sitting on the porch or by the pool The room was big and had air conditioning.The surroundings were beautiful. The staff was very friendly and the cats and dogs made us feel right at home. Many a night we ate at the restaurant in the garden. The food and drinks were fabulous. We will be back next year! Thank you Silvia and Denis for a great stay in Akumal!
