Casa Turquesa, a lovely boutique hotel on a prime stretch of beach in Cancun's hotel zone, is quietly making a comeback. The gorgeous little property was once the go-to getaway spot for rock stars and Hollywood's A-list celebrities but, following hurricane Wilma, in October 2005, the hotel closed. After several years of sitting empty, the property was remodeled and it finally reopened.
Their grand reopening was so quiet that even long-time Cancun residents and travel agents that specialize in Cancun were not aware that the property had reopened at first. Now, Casa Turquesa wants to make a little more noise and get the word out. This little gem wants the world know that it is most definitely open and accepting reservations.

The 29-suite property has 4 floors and, when walking through the resort, you feel more like you are staying at a private villa than at a hotel. Marble floors, a grand staircase in the main entrance, and an exquisite art collection (pieces of the owner's extensive art collection decorate the walls of the resort) are some things that give the hotel its upscale, luxurious feel.
During a stay at the hotel, you can be ensured that your privacy will be respected. Surprisingly, even when the resort is filled to capacity, you rarely run into other guests while roaming around the property and the pool area is not usually crowded. Each suite has a private jacuzzi tub on the terrace and the multi-level Honeymoon Suite has two fabulous terraces for sunbathing. With room features like that, it is understandable that guests don't want to stray too far from their suites while at Casa Turquesa.
There is a small pool overlooking the ocean, tennis courts, a small spa, and two restaurants on-site. One incredibly unique feature of Casa Turquesa is its art museum. In addition to all of the amazing art that adorns the walls of Casa Turquesa, there is also a small art museum on the hotel grounds.
The hotel is perfect for couples, families, or anyone that wants peace, quiet, and relaxation when they are on vacation.
