Three Iguanas Villa
Reviewed 30 May 2017

We spent three wonderful days at 3 iguanas. We stayed in the upper unit, with what turned out to be a fantastic private patio and plunge pool. The owners, Amnelise and Doyle, live in the second floor and were lovely to deal with. They arranged tours through Doyle's company Dtours, and were helpful but unobtrusive.
The room was clean and well appointed, with a microwave, fridge coffee maker and all one would need to get the day started. The unit itself was a nice bedroom with air, conditioning. The sink is in the bedroom and the bathroom is a bit odd as the toilet is in with the shower....just something unique that we quickly worked around.
From the rooftop deck and plunge pool, your view is of the mangroves and the sea.
In back of the house is a canal where we swam ( it's about 300 yards long and clean- perfect for a pool swimmer adjusting to open water.
They have a perfect little dock, kayaks and a hammock. Bicycles were available and we used the, each day to peddle into the village- the proximity to town is a great advantage.
We loved every minute of our stay. I'd highly recommend 3 iguanas.

Absolutely fantastic! My wife and I took our teenage boys and had great experience staying there. Annelise and Doyle were great. They were helpful and not pushy. Could not say anything negative about our stay. The Benavidez'

We stayed at the 3 Iguanas February 2016 and had a great time. Annelise and Doyle were fantastic hosts. Loved the location, Kayaks, beach cruiser bikes and all the connections these guys have in the area and of course Doyle's cooking!
We look forward to staying there again someday and would highly recommend staying at the 3 Iguanas!

We'd never been to Placencia before so it was sort of a random throw of a dart that brought us to Three Iguanas Villa and we hit the bullseye! From the moment we arrived, our wonderfully warm and welcoming hosts Annelise and Doyle made us feel at home. Especially true since they were literally welcoming us into their home! Since it was just my husband and I, we chose to stay in the upstairs studio apartment. It was a lovely, private little hideaway perfect for two. We had a balcony with a beautiful view and a soaking pool just outside our door. The location of the Villa is such that you are easily close enough to walk into town but off the main road so there is quiet and seclusion. A grocery store is very nearby and we walked to get food to have for breakfast or snacks but we also enjoyed the restaurants and bars of Placencia's sidewalk. A bonus to staying at the Villa is that Doyle is also a marvelous tour guide (DTOURZ) so if you want to go on a tour, you're already at the pick up point! (We highly recomend the Cockscomb Wildlife Sanctuary tour.)

If we had any questions about anything Belize, Annelise and Doyle were there to help. In fact, we changed our plans and decided to fly back to Belize City and Annelise helped us with the making of airplane reservations just like that. Our stay was very relaxing and laid back which is exactly what we needed: an escape from the rest of the world!

I cannot say enough good things about the Villa and I know that when we return to Placencia, we've already got a home away from home waiting for us.

Room Tip: The upstairs studio is perfect for a couple.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Three Iguanas! The rooms are beautiful, modern, and spacious, and the villa is located along the lagoon so it's great for swimming, kayaking, and lounging. It was close enough to center of the village that we could quickly reach convenience stores, ice cream shops, restaurants, etc., but nicely tucked away from the hustle and bustle. Doyle and Annelise are wonderful and hospitable hosts! We felt most welcome at the villa.

My experience at Three Iguanas Villa is one I consistently want to relive. It is the perfect place to relax! Located close enough to supermarkets, beach bars, and all the attractions that Placencia has to offer, however; the location is quiet so when you're done with the busy village life you can always return to Three Iguanas and just breath! Not to mention the hosts Doyle and Annelise are well versed in all the wonderful things that Placencia and Belize have to offer and are friendly and accommodating to say the least. Doyle is also Belize's #1 tour guide, who has received numerous accolades for his Dtourz tour company. Three Iguanas sits on the lagoon and also has the roof top terrace which has a remarkable view! I am sure you will not regret staying at this lovely location!

Room Tip: My favorite is the 3rd floor Suite, with balcony, terrace and pool!

The Three Iguanas Villa is a 5* villa in a 5* location.

The villa sits on a beautiful stretch of the lagoon, in a small settlement of beautiful houses and boats. It is a wonderful , peaceful location, but is incredibly only 5 minutes walk into where all of the action is in Placencia village. I couldn't imagine a more ideal location.
We had great fun swimming in the lagoon straight from the back garden.

The villa itself is beautiful and very well equipped. There's a swimming pool on the roof terrace which enjoys incredible 360 degree views of the surrounding areas.
There's also a lovely peaceful garden with hammocks which provided a great hangout spot.

We couldn't have asked for better hosts, they are so friendly and full of knowledge and recommendations. Their presence, input and recommendations made our trip a dream.
