This villa is a very nice place in a 5-star location. The house staff kept it immaculate during our stay, and they offered laundry service for 100 pesos per small load. The recommended chef service was amazing and really made our trip feel similar to staying at a resort. Each meal was incredible and they cleaned up afterwards too. We had 2 families along with us and there was room for everyone. The kids LOVED the pool and the snorkeling in the cove down the beach. We decided not to use the casita, as it is in need of some updating. Our only issue during the trip was that the power went out several times for hours at a time, and the water also ran out for about 1/2 a day. This villa REALLY needs a generator. All of the places around us seemed to have one, and when you are paying this much money, you want access to appliances, your electronic devices and especially air conditioning!! Our chefs had to be very creative for several of our meals as they only had access to the gas stove. Sleeping without the a/c was almost unbearable and although we understand that everyone did their best to get the issue resolved each time, it really did cause us some discomfort. I will be asking on a go-forward basis if the rentals I plan on booking have generators for power outages. That being said, we had a REALLY great vacation and Zubet definitely did her best to accommodate us before and during the entire trip!!
Spacious, quiet, well appointed
This is a great home to book with a group of friends or family. The 3 bedrooms in the house ( our group didn’t require the guest house ) all had very large bathrooms, and a/c in each room when you need to cool off.
The steps from the yard lead RIGHT to the beach which was lovely
-Bring tough bottom water shoes for sure as there is a good amount of rock/coral and you will defiantly want to get in that water.
- When leaving the house to the beach, go left for about a nice 10 minute walk along the water and there is a cute little beach side restaurant called Chamicos to grab food and drinks at.
- Just one building over to the left on the beach is a small hotel that has a beachside indoor restaurant overlooking the water as well.
- Home comes with large drinking water dispensers on both levels so bring a reusable water bottle to take with you when you go out for the day
- Casa Cenote is right up the street from you, and across from that is a small market.
In this review there are some valuable tips to enjoy the area even more. Also nearby (in this gated community) are five restaurants, manatee cenote (this is a wonderful cenote to snorkle or scuba in) and the beach is right out your door. You can walk to all the restaurants. Right now it’s TURTLE SEASON! We already have three nests. In total last year we had over 150, right in front of the villa! In 2017/2018 we released 5000+ baby turtles. Our conservation efforts have really made a difference in the turtle population in our area. It is truly an amazing experience to see the mommas come in to lay their nests and the babies hatching and going to sea. Turtle season begins in late April and our last nests typically hatch out in early January. The prime months to see laying and hatching are June, July, August and Septmeber. We welcome you to join us in our efforts to provide a safe nesting habitat for these magnificent, endangered creatures. COME JOIN US TO SEE THE TURTLES!
Wonderful house! The house is new and spacious with spectacular views. The kids loved playing in the pool and the adults loved hanging out on the balcony. Your objective for this beach is not strolling or snorkeling, but turtle watching and the turtles did not disappoint. We were there in July and every night it was like turtle Normandy often with half a dozen turtles laying eggs at the same time. We didn’t see any hatchlings but that had to be quite something to see too. Zubet took care of everything we needed and the trip went very smoothly. I recommend hiring the personal chef that Zubet recommends. It was affordable, the food was amazing, you save so much time versus sitting in restaurants, and if you have food allergies to deal with, it’s especially wonderful. Thank you Zubet for a once in a lifetime experience!!!
Thank you. It was nothing but a pleasure to host you and your family. Myself and my staff are here to roll out the red carpet and give our guests the best holiday ever. We can organize anything you desire and our location provides a very easy luxury home base for so many of the wonderful activities available here in the Riviera Maya. Come and see the turtles! We’re waiting for you!

Fantastic Luxury Getaway
My wife and I just returned from a week at Corozon De La Tortuga which we shared with another couple an their two younger daughters (9 and 4). The house is beautiful with very high-grade furniture and uniqure architectural touches made from very high quality materials. You get the feeling that a lot of thought went into the design and construction of this wonderful house and it has held up very well - still looking new in it's ocean-front location.
This was my first time staying in the Tulum area as we had friend's down the beach celebrating a birthday - having stayed in the Akumal area for the last 6 visits. I can say that this area is definitely a step up in all areas that originally attracted me to Akumal 10 years ago - privacy, ocean-front villas, beachfront restaurants with very good food, proximity to other attractions along highway 307, value.
The owner and staff really go out of their way to meet requests and help to make you feel at home and provide details if it is your first visit. We took advantage of the chef services on 4 occasions and had 4 wonderful meals and a very good value.
We were always looking forward to get back home to Corozon De La Tortuga after a day of adventures up and down the coast!
A Perfect Holiday
We have just returned from a very memorable 14 days stay in Tulum, staying at the gorgeous beach front villa Corazon de la Tortuga (Turtle Heart Villa). The property is just incredible with many high-lights including secluded but safe location, lovely spaces with comfortable beds and stunning bathrooms, beautiful pool and surroundings, mins from tavernas and cenotes, but the best is being able to sit on the villa steps and watch the sea turtles making their way to the beach to make their nests and lay eggs and subsequently watching the eggs hatch and the wee baby turtles make their way to the ocean. A truly magical and privileged experience. The villa manager and staff were outstanding, nothing was too much trouble. The house and rooms were cleaned to a very high standard daily and for a small fee our laundry washed and folded. We stayed in the villa with friends and 3 children under 5 and it was a more than comfortable and safe environment. We used the chef services a couple of nights, the food was delicious and it was a treat to be waited on without having to leave the house! There are so many exciting things to do around the area, Explor and Xel Ha were particular highlights as was the Tulum Ruins and awe inspiring Chichen Itza (one of the 7 new wonders of the world). I would not hesitate in recommending Corazon de la Tortuga to anyone wanting to explore this beautiful part of the world and thank Zubet and Francesca for helping make our stay comfortable and worry free.
Couldn't have been better!
We stayed in this home for one week, 2 families both with 2 kids (ages 5 and 8). It was perfect! The pool was a big hit and provided lots of entertainment when we were home. Very comfortable home. There were several highlights of staying in the house. The turtles laying eggs on the beach-every night we saw several of them and it was a truly magical experience. The housekeeper and groundskeeper were the most friendly sweetest people. The woman who lives on the property was beyond helpful. We had a chef, Irma come in for 3 nights and she was amazing to say the least-the food was incredible and so was the service! I really can't say enough good things about our experience staying here. Highly suggest to anyone looking for a wonderful home to stay in Tulum.
