Las Iguanas is a super large oceanfront villa located just north of downtown Cozumel. It's location both on the ocean and close to town is perfect for those who want to enjoy oceanfront living without being 20 or more minutes out of town.
The villa has three levels, two of which have the bedrooms and common areas of the house. The third is the oceanfront level and includes an outdoor bar, a fresh-water shower, access to a large man-made beach, the pool and, of course, the ocean. The ocean surrounding the villa is filled with a beautiful coral reef, offering awesome underwater life viewing and snorkeling.
From the street, you'll walk into the second level. Immediately, you'll notice how large the space is. This common area has a section with comfortable couches and cable TV, a full-size pool table, a dining room with seating for eight, access to the kitchen, and a small desk area where you can comfortably catch up on email.
The kitchen has all the amenities you might need to make fabulous meals - major and small appliances, purified drinking water, and pots & pans. Off of the kitchen is also one of the four bedrooms. This bedroom has a full size and twin bunk bed combination and a private bath with a walk in shower. It's perfect for the kids or teenagers in your group to share. A second bedroom is located on this level as well. This bedroom is a bit larger, has a queen size bed and a large private bathroom.
From the second level, you'll also have access to an outside dining area, where you can enjoy an early morning breakfast before heading to the ocean or pool for some sunbathing and swimming.
On the 3rd level is where you'll find the remaining two bedrooms. Each of these bedrooms has one king and one full size bed and private bathrooms with walk in showers. These two bedrooms have wrap-around windows from which you can watch beautiful sunsets and wake up to the sounds of the waves. This level also has access to the large outdoor deck.
Perhaps the most defining feature of this property is the huge ocean frontage. There is a man-made beach, steps leading to the dock from where you can jump in the water, a big pool with loungers, and an outdoor eating area with seating for six that hangs precariously at the edge of the ocean. There's even an outdoor bar where you can amaze the rest of your group with your signature margarita recipe.
With room for twelve guests, this house is perfect for a group of friends or an extended family vacation.
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.
Had a great stay in August. House is beautiful and you cannot get a better view! The pool was very refreshing and the view from the table outside was amazing. The fish guarding the ladder from the ocean was there so getting out was a little difficult lol. The only single thing I can "complain" about (and it's not that big of a deal) is there is no grill. We really wanted to do some grilling, but again, not a huge problem. Would not hesitate to stay here again with a group. The house is so big we never felt "too close".
My family and I spent a week in Cozumel and stayed at the Seaside Oasis. The process of booking was very easy with Pawel, he was quick to respond to our initial contact and all other inquiries after. This 4 bedroom house has lots and lots of space for group even bigger then my family of 6. The house is not in top mint condition but it still in excellent condition and the maid will come every day and they keep it very clean. The best part though is you are literally on the ocean, your kids can go snorkeling right of the stairs leading out of the back of the property. The waters are calm enough and no dangers around, between the ocean and the pool our kids needed nothing else except for Tacos. We will definitely book again and have no problem recommending it to our friends.
Everything great. My only complain has to do with the fourth bedroom (very small and you enter thorugh the kitchen).
Great snorkeling, excelent location and very spacious. Will definitely consider staying again at Las Iguanas.
We stayed in March with my wife, brother and sister in law and adult niece and nephew and their partners. The house is as pictured, not 5 star but solid 4, and location is a definite 5, easy access to town and places to eat, amazing coral reef snorkeling right in you back yard. The house representative Victor was extremely responsive, he replied to texts usually within minutes and any issues (which were minor) were handled the same day. Which I am not used to in Mexico. Recent upgrades are noticeable so ignore older reviews. House keeping was excellent they came midmorning which was good for us, not too early or too late.. For the price, this is the best place I have stayed in all the Caribbean.
Only minor negative is that the 4th bedroom is very small and so is the associated bath and you access it thru the kitchen, which is kind of weird. Other bedrooms and baths are large. We booked with Enjoy Cozumel and they were very responsive and helpful in booking rental cars in addition to the property.
My family of six stayed at Los Iguanas during the Cozumel Ironman and over the Thanksgiving holiday. The home has everything you need and the maid service was excellent. Victor responded immediately to every call we made to him. He arranged for a masseuse to come to the house, he called for a taxi to take us to the ferry and answered all the other questions we had. You won't find any better snorkeling then in your own back yard. Thank you Enjoy Cozumel for a relaxing and fun vacation.
We spent Christmas 2014 at Las Iguanas and really enjoyed this house and location. The best thing about this place is the outside - huge private yard, great salt water pool, and great access to the ocean for amazing snorkeling. We snorkeled all over Cozumel, and what we had in the back yard was the best! The second story veranda was huge as well.
The house furnishings are a bit dated and kind of sparse, but for our family, it was just fine. The beds were comfortable and it's a nice neighborhood. Walking down to the marina was always nice.
I recommend this property and this rental company…they also lined up our car rental and hooked us up with Alberto for diving. 5 stars
