Well maintained property and good communication with property managers before and during our stay. Lots of space for our two families. and total of 5 children. We were well looked after. Daniel's cooking is excellent and Alicia kept the space tidy. Please note that an extra 5% of total is recommended as a tip for the staff. Staff were lovely and helpful. Daniel was particularly helpful in planning our excursions. Location is great - able to walk to a nearby beach and small convenience stores. Overall, a very relaxing stay . We would happily return.

What an amazing trip! We absolutely LOVED our stay at Casa Iguana! We can't thank Daniel enough for all of his delicious meals and snacks (especially the guacamole...yum!), for organizing golf carts and a fishing trip, his helpful advice and information, his patient Spanish lessons and just being so darned accommodating. Thank you Daniel, you are a lovely man!! We had rented a car, but with the easy and convenient walkability of Casa Iguana's location, and having Daniel always happily willing to arrange transportation for us, we found it to be an unnecessary expense. The nearby beaches, numerous restaurants with delicious food offerings, shops and groceries stores are all within very easy walking distance. Extremely convenient! Never for a moment did we feel unsafe in Casa Iguana or Akumal. Casa Iguana has it's own security (thank you to them for their long nights keeping watch) and we found the people of Akumal so friendly! Another big thank you to Alicia for keeping the house and casita so clean - we loved being greeted by her big, beautiful smile every morning. The house and casita were perfect for our group of 7. We loved the outdoor space - especially the large outdoor table for family game nights and morning coffee. We enjoyed spending time by the pool & relaxing in the hammocks by the ocean. We are definitely all looking forward to returning to Casa Iguana next year. Let the countdown begin! Gracias! The Heidts, Keys & Ristes Alberta, Canada

We loved the house. The wifi, air conditioning, kitchen, pool all worked great. The pool was clean. The beds were comfy. The view was wonderfull. The beach is at about a seven minute walk away. Restaurants at about a 7 to 12 minute walk away. We didn’t have a car and didn’t feel we needed one. The caretaker and chef, Daniel, was wonderful. He cooked us three tasty breakfasts and two delicious dinners. Alecia, the maid, kept everything clean. Both were very friendly. We felt very safe walking around the streets and also in the yard and in the house. The place was quiet. We would definitely recommend it and hope to return.

Every year my family of 12 (6 adults/6 kids) picks a different place to meet & enjoy time together. This year we picked Casa Iguana in Akumal & it was our best location to date! Casa Iguana is a short walk to Akumal Bay & Half Moon Bay and if you just feel like relaxing, you can lounge by the pool or in the hammocks overlooking the ocean. There are places to be in the sun, or the shade & the air conditioning throughout the casita & main house kept us cool while inside. One of the most pleasant surprises was Daniel. If you stay here you MUST have him cook for you. Yes, it is convenient, but most importantly, he is an amazing chef & will treat you to the most delicious meals you will have during your entire stay in Akumal. He is also an invaluable source of information & not only helped us find a fishing boat/guide, he helped clean & cook the fish that we caught. Additionally, Alicia worked every day to keep Casa Iguana clean and in order. Our entire reservation from start to finish was straight forward & easy. Every question I had (& I had many) was answered quickly & thoroughly by the staff at Akumal Direct Reservations. If I could give Casa Iguana more than 5 stars, I would!

What a dream! We had 5 adults and three kiddos and this had a perfect amount of space. Daniel (on site overseer) cooked amazing meals and always made sure we had a cold cerveza available. The main house has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The guest house has two bedrooms and bathrooms as well. A full kitchen and seating area are in both the main and guest house. We ate all of our meals outside since it is so beautiful and has a larger table. Make sure to ask for tips on where to access the beach. You will need to walk 5-8 minutes to access the non-rocky part and some places charge you 200 pesos per person. We loved our time!

We really enjoyed our stay in Akumal Casa Iguana. Daniel cooked for us on most nights it was delicious!! Alicia kept things tidy for us she was wonderful! The property was fun, ocean views, Volleyball, and a pool! We enjoyed visiting it! The house has a lot of space and it's own compound. Sunrises are beautiful!

Great stay. We had two adults and 3 youth in the separate casita, 2 adults and 2 kids in the upstairs of the main house and my wife and I in main level bedroom. 5 stars for both Daniel the cook and Alicia the housekeeper. They were wonderful and provided all we would want. Expect them in your house often taking care of you. They had security service as well, and we never felt any discomfort. Organize your meals and remember there will be large quantities of food. You will front the $$ for Daniel to go shopping and cook for you. His ceviche he prepared from the fish we caught was really fantastic. This is a ocean front house but there is not a beach there. When we wanted beach time we took an easy walk north or south. Both places you need to get on the beach by buying a drink or snacks at the restaurant. I rented two bicycles for the week and found that very convenient to be able run up the the local stores. We took two scuba dives and found the reef beautiful. I would definitely recommend this place.

Daniel and Alessia were wonderful hosts making our stay quite comfortable. Daniel and his son cooked fajitas for our dinner one evening and even made margaritas. The beds were comfortable with air conditioning units in each bedroom. The only thing we missed was a nice beach. The beach behind the house is rough rocky terrain all the way to the water, so it is not good for hanging out. Loved the pool and everything else about the property. The house is located in a small community in Akumal within walking distance of several restaurants and shops. Definitely a good value for the money.

Our entire family enjoyed their stay at Casa Iguana. Daniel and Alicia were very nice and welcoming. The weather was perfect and the house was perfectly located, within walking distance from local restaurants, the Yal-Ku lagoon, and the Dive center. 
We enjoyed Daniel's cooking and also took advantage of the kitchen to prep a few meals ourselves. We spent a lot of time in the pool, adults and toddlers alike while cataloging all of the iguanas living on the property. We look forward to visiting Akumal again in the future.

Our group of 11 extended family members, which included 3 children under 5, stayed at Casa Iguana. The pool is perfect for the little ones. It was also nice having two kitchen on the property for storing all our food. The best part about this property is its staff. Daniel was excellent and made us beautiful dinners every night. The little palapa with hammocks overlooking the sea was also heavily used by our group. The property is showing its age a bit but everything was very clean and the landscaping is neat. The location is walking distance to the village of Akumal where there is great snorkeling or you can walk in the other direction to the lagoon (Yal Ku) for more of a fresh water swimming/snorkeling experience.

Casa Iguana is a beautiful well kept property and the location could not be better. It is a 5 minute walk to town (Akumal) and a 5 minute walk to Half Moon Bay and La Buena Vida. There are 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and 2 kitchens (three if you include the outdoor cook area. The pool is nice and you can see the ocean. The outdoor dining area is tucked down a bit and protects you from the wind. The best part was our host Daniel, he is really nice (not too much English but can get by fine). Daniel is also a fantastic cook and made 4 dinners for us (you buy the food and tip him for all the work) and one breakfast. We could not have had a better time.

Our family stayed at Casa Iguana May 20th - May 27th, and we never wanted to leave. Danny, the grounds keeper and chef, met us when we arrived. It was heavenly. The main house and the casita were perfect. The rooms are large with lots of storage. Great bathrooms. The kitchen's (yes, there are 2) are very well supplied. It was perfect. Danny had pico and guacamole with chips ready for us when we arrived. Just what we needed. The landscaping is beautiful. There is a beautiful fountain by the large dining table. There are many different outside lighting options that really show off the place at night. Beyond the houses towards the beach is the private pool. It was always clean and inviting. We brought a pool volleyball net, so we could play water volley ball. So much fun. Beyond the pool towards the beach is the wonderful sand volley ball court. Great exercise and fun. Beyond this is the awesome palapa. It is a raised area with 2 hammocks and chairs that looks directly onto the beach. Amazing view morning, noon, and night. I wanted to mention Alicia. She is the house keeper, and she is a wonderful person. She kept the houses clean and always sweeping up after us. She was very helpful and kind. Danny did a wonderful job with the grounds and the pool. He answered all of our many questions, and he was very knowledgeable. The best meals we had while we were in Akumal Danny prepared. We asked him if he could get us fresh lobster and shrimp. He had to travel ways to manage this request, but the next evening he prepared fresh lobster and shrimp for our family. He served us at the beautiful outside table. It was absolutely wonderful. Another night he prepared us verde enchiladas and red enchiladas. Amazing... To top it off he baked a wonderful flan for dessert. 5 stars to Danny and Alicia. Thank you guys for all you did for us. I wish we could have stayed forever. O ... I forgot to mention the iguanas. Love them too. Bre'Aun, Jon, Camden, Jenn, Shonta, and Kevin. Dallas, Texas

We stayed here with an extended family group - there was plenty of space for everyone with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms plus extra seating outside at table in garden and hammocks under Palapa by the sea that was always breezy and cool. Perfect location - staff was amazing. No Complaints - loved every amazing minute of it - memories made with family in pool, under palapa, on volleyball court, under stars, dining with Danny...It was a great escape.

We loved our stay. Daniel was the man. What a great cook and truly nice guy. Casa Iguana is walking distance to the beach, shopping and restaurants. There was plenty of space for our party of eleven. The layout is as follows. The main house: The upstairs master suite has A/C, a queen bed, ample storage space and large bathroom with two sinks. The space outside of the master suit has the best views, a TV and a double bed. The only drawback is no A/C unless you leave the master suite door open. There are two decks on the second floor, the larger connected to the master suite. The downstairs has a small dining area with A/C, kitchen, bathroom and a back bedroom with A/C and two twin beds. The casita: Both bedrooms have A/C, one has two doubles and one has one double and one twin. The main room has A/C, TV space for air beds (we brought a couple for the kids), a large kitchen with a breakfast bar. The pool is a modest size, but has both shallow and deep ends and plenty of room around it the several comfortable lounge chairs. There is a palapa overlooking the sea with two chairs and two hammocks. There is an outside shower and kitchen with sink and charcoal/wood-fired grill. I could go on and on We would definitely return when next in Riviera Maya.

Place was great. Lots of room for our guests and close to may restaurants. Also The staff on premises (Danial and Amilia) were very friendly and kept the property clean and comfortable. Danial cooked our fresh caught fish for us along with lots of other meals. Very good cook!

Wonderful place, wonderful memories.

Great spaces, large property that you can have some privacy from others even in your own group! The main house is clearly nicer, but it was sooo nice to have 2 seperate living places for privacy, but still have great outdoor spaces to come together. Shop in Playa at Mega or other grocery store b4 coming up. Have a great time, don't miss La Buena Vida and Sergio at the Galleria. He paints outside his shop local scenes. Great guy. We ordered 3 paintings to be sent to us in the states. Tell him Barb and Manuel say hello. Wonderful family. We LOVE akumal.

Three couples shared this rental for annual trip to escape the cold. The property is ideally located near town, La Buena Vida bar, and Yal Ku lagoon--you can't get much better than that in Akumal. The outside spaces are unbelievablely beautiful and provide an opportunity to enjoy three distinct spaces: the pool; the palapa complete with hammocks; and the garden area. The homes are well kept and the staff is friendly and helpful. The beds were very hard for my body and I ended up sleeping on my pool raft the last two nights to spare my body the agony of springs protruding into my ribs. Based on my highly unscientific survey, this house is one of the best deals in Akumal.

We arranged for an arrival-day dinner - what a treat after our travel day! It was so pleasant, we did it again the night before we left! The staff couldn't have been more agreeable, and kept the place spotless. If we couldn't find the information we needed in the house book, Roger, Manuel or Juany had the answer. We enjoyed having separate buildings so early risers and night owls could avoid bothering one another. Look for the nightly parade of hermit crabs - fascinating!

We only gave 4 stars for the satisfaction with the property's general condition because the Air Conditioning units were not great. One of the ones in the smaller casita barely worked at all and two others weren't all that great in that they didn't actually cool things down enough. The best one was in the downstairs bedroom in the big house.

As far as the cleanliness of the property, there was a party there right before we checked in and there were some remnants including broken glass by the pool and cigarette butts in the gardens and beach. Also there were some weird stains on the wall behind the television in the smaller casita. Manuel did a great job overall though and was very friendly and helpful as was the housekeeper. One other thing was that one of the fresh water jars (for tooth brushing) in the bathroom of the smaller casita was broken and the other ones were not refilled during our stay. Other than that the maid service was excellent. What a special place, we hope to be back soon!

Best Treasure in Akumal!!!

We took a 3 generation family vacation to Casa Iguana. the Houses and grounds gave everyone what they were looking for fron the 4 year old to the 70 year old. I highly recommend this quaint, beautiful, functional property (although there are acouple of "fall points" where a small toddler could fall through the pool area railing). We will be going back as often as we can!

Home was nice but Casita has a bug issue. Beach towels would have been nice and shower downstairs barely works so should be fixed. Looks like there used to be a in the downstairs room and casita room but it is gone now. Location is great, manager was great and was the on-site staff.

This villa was fantastic!!!! We have stayed in 3 other places in Akumal and this one is now our favorite.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Iguana in Akumal. The property is like your own private resort, the staff was friendly and very helpful and we fell in love with Akumal--it was great to walk to restaurants, grocery store, beaches and snorkeling sites. We highly recommend Casa Iguana and plan to return soon.
