Stayed here with 2 friends in the off season and we absolutely loved it. The rooms were super cozy and clean with all the necessary amenities. We LOVED the rooftop plunge pool for sunset cocktails! The location is perfect, being a 5 - 10 minute walk to the main part of the village but tucked away in a quiet side street. They also have bicycles you can use to go into town, and a canoe and inflatables that you can use to bob about on in the mangroves! Perhaps the best thing about this place is the awesome hosts who have tons of local knowledge and are really friendly! Would definitely stay here again!

We found Annelise and the 3 Iguanas Lodge via Doyle and DTourz and couldn’t be happier we did (we also have exceptional things to say about DTourz). Coming from the US, especially if you have never been before, Placencia can seem a bit confusing to figure out where to stay. Many of the resorts advertise being close to town, even though they are on the opposite end (30 minutes away!).

3 Iguanas is exactly what you want when staying in the area. We stayed on the third floor unit and the space itself is fantastic. The room is private, spacious, air conditioned, clean and stocked with everything you may need. You get access to basically a private pool, as well as the entire grounds overlooking the lagoon, which includes some hammocks we fell in love with (and some cute cats!). The location is a short walk into town (or an even shorter bike ride on the beach cruisers Annelise provides) while also being far enough away to feel quiet and serene.

What makes 3 Iguanas exceptional is Doyle and Annelise. They make you feel like you are staying with family, and help you feel like a local in Placencia. While they will give you your space if that is what you prefer, you will have a far better experience interacting with Doyle and Annelise. From showing us their favorite bars and restaurants, to serving us homemade food, to giving us rides, they made Placencia a very special part of our Belize visit.

We found this gem by accident the first trip since I was booking several tours with Dtourz. In our email exchanges he mentioned their rental home. Our son is autistic so the least amount of change is the best for him so we thought staying with the people we would tour with was best. Needless to say we LOVED our trip so much we’ve returned as adults only, and again as an entire family.

Wishing I was there right now...not only is the home wonderful but it’s the owners that we love the MOST! Truly a privilege to call them friends.....

This place is a perfect for a bit more privacy, but still very close to the "action". Annelise and Doyle were very welcoming and the rooms were great! Very comfortable beds, very clean and quiet. They had bikes of us to use as well as kayaks and swimming was right outside the door, or on the upper level! I can't say enough on how much I appreciated their hospitality. They knew so much about the area, like a walking internet. :)

We stayed at in the downstairs Hibiscus Suite at The Three Iguanas for ten days in April. Annelise made us very welcome and was always available to give us advice on the best places to eat and drink and helped us to arrange tours to the jungle, snorkelling and to see manatees. The room was spotless and had all the equipment you could want for a self catering stay. The supermarket was only a few minutes walk up the road and had a wide variety of good quality products. The room had two ceiling fans and a very efficient air conditioning unit which made it a comfortable place to sleep. The bed was also very comfortable. We loved the roof terrace with the plunge pool and the hammocks and sun loungers on the deck where you could relax and even have a swim in the canal to cool off.
The Three Iguanas is a hidden gem in a peaceful location but only a few minutes walk to the beach and all the activities in the village. Annelise,Doyle and their cats are the perfect hosts. I highly recommend staying in their villa.
