“Peace and Nature & Oceanfront living !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2011

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!

The couple that run the business did a very good job choosing the place and building the facilities. It's right between Malpais and Santa Teresa beaches, strategically positioned if you're checking the surf, and also a short walk to a variety of restaurants and a mini-market.
Price is ok considering what you get: clean and quiet rooms, wi-fi internet, yoga classes in the morning and local surfing tips from Peter, the friendly Austrian-born owner/surfer/barman.
And never mind the language: Deutsche, Portuguese, English, Spanish... this guy speaks everything!

This place is just like paradise... The hotel is right on the beach. It is quiet, only birds, monkeys, geckos, squirrels and crabs! The only thing you have to do is enjoy and relax... The beauty of the surrounding, the beach, the surf, coconuts... Nature and peace all around you...
