My husband and I stayed at the THREE IGUANAS in April and really truly had the time of our lives. We stayed in the Roof Top Suite which was incredible! We enjoyed the breezes and the view from there and were lucky enough to enjoy the pool on our own for most of the week though it was nice to meet some new people later in the week too. As for Annelise and Doyle, you couldn't ask for better hosts. Annelise was so available whenever we had any questions and Doyle was a wealth of information. Many people have said it and I can only agree wholeheartedly that I feel we just met some life long friends.

Traveling with a big guy, I always want a king bed. However, this place looked so good I said OK to the queen room available for a week. Since I had made my wishes known, our host Annelise surprised us on arrival stating the king room had become available and saved it for us on the first floor! Wow, the bed was so comfy, bathroom large, kitchenette great & AC welcome when needed. The views are great on the lagoon with boats going by during the day and ample seating on the deck. If you choose, you can swim in the lagoon or borrow their kayaks to use. Then there is a cool 3rd floor pool and more views of the other lagoon and sea beyond! It is quiet and has one bar/restaurant down the road, and a store & pharmacy just a few steps more. You can walk to many restaurants, bars & shops in town or borrow their bicycles to get there! Since we stayed a week, we used their onsite laundry service. The hosts, Annelise & Doyle, are very friendly and knowledgeable about tours in the area. Check out Dtourz (Doyle's family business) for great experiences! We loved Annelise's English accent and her enthusiasm! We have made a new friend for sure! We look forward to returning to Placencia and staying at Three Iguanas! P.S. Actually saw a beautiful iguana on the road outside this Villa, so great name! And we enjoyed their friendly kitties. Stay here, you'll love it!

Three Iguanas is an absolute gem of a property! Not only are the accommodations fabulous but Annaelise & Doyle are AMAZING hosts. We stayed in the roof top apartment, perfect size for two. The small kitchenette was a bonus. Bed/sheets/towels were all top notch. A/C avail. Annaelise has thought of everything with the accommodations. The roof top dip pool provides excellent views of the lagoon along with comfy loungers. You can swim/kayak the lagoon or simply take in the peace and beauty from the deck. Walking distance to the beach & town, or use the bicycles provided. While close to everything, the quiet location is wonderful to come back to after a day out. Annaelise and Doyle are very knowledgeable on all things Placencia and will answer any questions you have. Doyle also runs a tour company. (see DTOURZ on TripAdvisor for separate review) We were also privileged enough to have Doyle host/show us how to make a traditional Belizean dinner. WOW! I'll be honest, when looking to book a vacation rental we tend to shy away from staying at places where the owner is on site. This experience completely changed our thinking. I can't imagine everyone is as kind as Annaelise & Doyle are, but we feel very fortunate to have met them. We now consider them friends and can't wait to get back to see them & the wonders of Placencia itself. Lastly, a few must dos: Tutti Frutti Gelato, Barefoot Bar very friendly staff/patrons, good food/music. Dawn's Grill for a local dinner.

We have just returned from a wonderful fortnight at the Three Iguanas Villa in Placencia Belize. The rooftop suite has stunning views across the lagoon and often benefits from a cooling breeze. There one can sit in the small rooftop pool and watch the boats coming and going as well as the local birdlife while sipping a refreshing drink. Although we did not experience the other suites personally, we were able to view them and all were extremely comfortable. In addition to the pool, one can, if one wishes, swim in the lagoon alongside the property or make use of the house kayak, and there is plentiful comfortable seating by the dock in which one can just watch the world go by. The owner, Annelise Hagen, was the perfect host, full of enthusiasm and useful information while her partner, Doyle, owner of Dtourz, is one of the most knowledgable guides to the wildlife and culture of Belize. If anything deserves the cliché 'tropical paradise' this place does.

This was my first time to Placencia and it certainly won't be the last. We stayed at Three Iguanas for just shy of a week and it was everything we could dream of. We stayed in one of the first floor rooms with the kitchenette and shared bathroom. The bedroom was spacious, bed was comfortable, and having the kitchenette was great to keep beverages cold and warm up some snacks! Our friends had the adjoining bedroom, so sharing a bathroom was no big deal. The bathroom has two sinks so plenty of room for multiple people to be in there as well. Our other friends were also staying on the top floor with the rooftop pool, so that was a lovely added bonus! Annelise and Doyle are wonderful hosts, eager to tell you everything Placencia has to offer and willing to help in any way they can. We also did a jungle tour with Doyle one of the days we were there and that was awesome too! The location is on the lagoon so a peaceful place to hang out, but also close to walk to the village. Truly the best of both worlds. I plan on coming back and would recommend staying here to anyone.
