I stayed there for two weeks end of august/beginning of september 2011.
Had the best holidays ever... Hammock between the palm trees, surf twice a day, the best food and great weather for the rainy or "green" season. The surf was great, but too big for me on a few days. Ask Peter the owner, he's the man with tight knowledge on the surf conditions down there. I also had virtually no Mosquitos, got bitten only 5 Times in 2 Weeks. The rooms are big and as the bathrooms cleaned every day.
The standard of hygenie therefore is really high at itauna.
However, make sure the regular bus really passes by itauna during green season. The roads get really bad due to the erosion from rain and vehicles, and you might have to get off in playa del carmen. My recommendation, even though I would like to have this place to myself ;-) :
GO THERE, you will not regret it!
