  • Beautiful views of the ocean in a private setting

    "Martin's condo is everything he says it is. We stayed with another couple for 7 nights. It was my second time there and their first. The views are absolutely stunning and the property is very well kept. Marty and the manager will make sure they can do anything to accommodate your stay and the other employees of La Iguana become your friends. We made most of our meals in the condo so the kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils. The fresh water was in constant supply which was also nice for our weary friends. Our favorite things to do in Akumal was snorkeling in Yal Kul lagoon (a 5 min walk from the condo), dinner at Del Pescador near Turtle Bay and happy hour at La Buena Vida where you can have drinks and eat while laying in a hammock right on the beach. Just south of Akumal you will find beautiful beaches and wonderful cenotes everywhere you go. Some may question being on the north end of half moon bay but please don't. At La Iguana you aren't far from Akumal but get much more peace and quiet than the resorts and places closer to town will offer. If you are adventurous skip renting a car and just rent bikes for 5 dollars a day and take collectivos to go to tulum. It's faster to ride a bike to town than take a car in my opinion, lol. VEA ATV tours was a major highlight of this vacation so look into it if you like atving through the jungle! Thanks again Marty for a fabulous time!"

  • So great to stay with our friends again!

    "This was our second visit to Ken & Joanne's oasis. I can't imagine a better place to base our visit to the Mexican Riviera from. Ken and Joanne (along with Mittens and the Iguana pair living near the pool) warmly greeted us once again, and were amazing hosts. The weather was too windy for a lot of snorkeling, nothing to be done about that. We look forward to our next visit (perhaps in summer to swim with Whalesharks!)"

  • Didn't want a resort.

    "I wanted a small place to stay (that wasn't a huge resort) on the beach with a pool all with ground level access, this was perfect! We could walk out the sliding glass doors and be right at the pool, which we had all to ourselves since this was the slow season. The condo was spacious and clean with had satellite TV which was a requirement for hubby. Elena was very helpful and had Cristal drinking water there in the kitchen which was very nice. There is a washer & dryer and full size fridge and cooktop. She also had small appliances in the cabinets as well as silverware and dinnerware. The ocean was probably 20' from the edge of the pool wall and we could watch the birds play along the beach. Very pleasant place to stay"

  • gorgeous apartment and wonderful area

    "We stayed early September. Place was very clean and beds are super comfortable. The place is gorgeous. Magda,the property manager,provided an extra mattress for our little one and made us feel welcome. She also showed us how to watch shows in English and replaced a faulty coffee maker the next day. The pool is gorgeous and property well maintained. My husband loved the tennis courts. It's really about a 20 minute walk to Playa del carmen but taxis are frequent and inexpensive especially in the heat of day. We would definitely come back. Some minor area of improvements would be for the owner to equip the penthouse with a shaded area and some furniture. Currently, it's just 2 chairs and somewhat of a wasted space. If you want extra maid service other than the weekly, you should book a few days ahead as they're not always available . Also, it would be nice to have extra toilet paper, shampoo/conditioner samples provided. If you are more than 4 people, the Reef club, is extremely strict on have 1 'pass' for every 4 people. I would ask for the passes in advance as to not waste anytime. They're also strict on 9am-5pm and wouldn't allow me to walk through property so I could access the beach for a morning run."
