Three Iguanas Villa
Reviewed January 4, 2011

Three Iguanas is an upgraded house with 3 different levels available for rental. We stayed on the large middle floor. The house was very clean, everything was in working order, views were beautiful. Canoes were provided for our use, though we didn't get around to jumping in. There are also bicycles available which we rode into town multiple times to eat and buy groceries. Stefano, property manager, along with housekeeper, Sofia, were really teriffic! Stefano is an upbeat, happy-go-lucky Italian who is livin' a dream in Belize. He knows everything about the locale and is ready and willing to share and help in any way possible. Sofia can be seen throughout the day as she lives on the bottom floor of the house. She is very friendly and more than willing to help. Great place to stay!

Our family of 6, including four kids aged 9-18 stayed at Three Iguanas over Thanksgiving, 2010. We rented the entire villa, which has 5 bedrooms altogether so each child had his own room and bathroom. The teenagers stayed on the ground floor, where the rooms were more like studio apartments. Sofia, the onsite housekeeper, and Stefano, the manager of the place, were both easily available and very helpful with tips about the town, trips to take, and generally enjoying ourselves. We'd go back in a heartbeat--the best trip we've taken as a family.

I got married in Belize and I took about 30 people with me all over Belize. In Placenia I rented about 6 different rentals and Three Iguana's was my favoirte. It is close to everything with a great view from the top by the rooftop plunge pool. Stafano and Sofia the caretakers were great! They oviously care. There was an issue with water pressure however Stafano already had a plumber there when we were checkin in with him and it was fixed by the time we brought in our bags. Everyone had their own place to hang out and get rest from the group and still have a few different gathering areas. The kitchen was large enough to accomidate and cook for 30 people when we had a big get together dinner. I would recomend the top for a couple as a private retreat and the rest of the house works for amost anything. I would recomend The Three Iguanas to anyone or any other property managed by Stafano.

We returned last friday from a month long stay at the Three Iguanas. It was a fabulous trip and a wonderful place to stay. We booked all three units for our large family and it worked out perfectly. The manager, Stefano, was a great help and filled us in on the local restaurants and markets. Sofia the caretaker was wonderful. She kept the house in good order and even gave us a lesson on how to make plantain fritters! It was a favorite! I can't say enough about how lovely her and her beautiful children were. We are all hoping to return next year.

Our family of six enjoyed our 9 night stay immensely: the rooftop pool, porches on all levels, palapa on the dock, dugouts and bikes provided, comfortably decorated, spacious design of house and proximity to points of interest. We enjoyed watching the lighting storms at night in the mountains from the rooftop pool, swimming in the canal during the day and cooking and entertaining at night. The distance from town is far enough away to avoid the hustle but close enough for a bike ride or walk. The property is maintained well by Stefano who will help with your local interests as well. Your household needs are very aptly met by Sofia. We highly recommend this property to other travelers.

This villa is on several levels, located right on the dock of the lagoon and catching the breezes off the water. It is on the very outskirts of Placencia, so a twenty minute walk into town, so don't choose it if you have disability problems...It's quiet, pretty, with accommodation well above standard, air con etc. The verandahs are shared, as is the tiny little roof top pool with a quasi- infinity edge over a 50' drop-not for kids, but great for adults. But the great beach is only 5 minutes walk away. The service from Stefano, the agent, is fantastic. He's around each day, and is a great fixer.

Placencia itself is quiet, almost sleepy, and utterly charming, miles of Caribbbean beach, palms, with a few little gift shops, and restaurants dotted here and there under the palms. we loved it.
