“Lovely View, Needs Some TLC Inside”

We have stayed on Cozumel since 1988 starting with the Fiesta Americana for years and then finally moving on to a private villa in town (Casa Carlita), which spoiled us. This year we decided to stay on the ocean and chose Villa Las Iguanas with two other couples joining us.

The highlights of this villa come from the outside, with the view absolutely breathtaking. We loved being able to jump in the ocean and snorkel right from the villa. And great snorkeling it was, even very close to shore. The ocean water pool was nice and we greatly enjoyed sitting at the outdoor table under a canopy to protect us from the sun. We had never stayed on the north end of the island and found it to be very nice. There is lots of outdoor seating areas.

The staff that takes care of the villa for the management property is to be commended for their excellent service. Victor serves as the house representative and has been with them for many years. He goes out of his way to make sure our stays are nice. Toni the maid was very friendly and did a nice job. Quintin takes care of the pool and was there three times during our seven day stay making sure everything was in order.

We must have been greatly spoiled by the owner of Casa Carlita as in all of our times staying there, the house and supplies were of exceptional quality. Not so at Las Iguanas. For the price we paid, we would expect better. Keep in mind the actual areas of the house are fine. The two upstairs bedrooms are large and have beautiful ocean views. The two other bedrooms are smaller with no views but all have privates baths. The living, dining and kitchen areas are also fine.

Here is our list of recommendations for the owner: Fix the air conditioner in the living room so it is not so noisy. We ended up turning that one off. Fix the one in the upstairs bedroom (on the right as you go up) as it dripped all night, most nights. Get new towels as they are old and thin as well as new bedding. Replace the lounge cushions that have burns in them. Replace all of the throw rugs. Provide more shelving in all bathrooms so supplies don't have to sit on floor.

We really aren't picky people and have never written a review with a list of things that need updated. For what really doesn't amount to a lot of money, the owner could make this villa a very nice rental. Not sure why these things would be left as they are.

Liked best: Outdoor area with great ocean access. The staff that took care of us and they villa. Hey work hard and are to be commended.
Liked least: The poorer quality of towels, linens and air conditioning units. For the price paid, we would expect better. That is our reason for the average rating for value for price paid. That rating all falls on the owner of the villa.

“Paradise in Cozumel”
Reviewed April 1, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Eight of us, recently back from a week at Las Iguanas. As we had stayed here in the past, before the recent renovations, we knew what we were getting into. This property was perfect for us.

The private back yard with pool, beach and palapa as well as the access to the ocean is the best. Easy access to town and the marina are also pluses. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Antonia our maid was wonderful. Very polite, professional and thorough. We asked, upon booking, that no chemicals be used for cleaning as one of the group has chemical allergies. Antonia was right on top of it and made absolutely sure we were OK with what she was using for cleaning. Gracias, Antonia!

Overall, another wonderful stay in Cozumel. We would definitely return to Las Iguanas!

Note the owner...please get some furniture on the new deck so guests can take advantage of this nice space.

The staff went out of their way to make our stay at the house amazing. Victor drove us to get our rental car and hooked us up with our diving instructor. He made us feel so safe on our snorkel trip, that we had him take us scuba diving the next day. The house was clean and the pool guy kept our pool extremely clean for our visit. This is our second trip to this house Vila Las Iguanas and it won't be out last.
