Casa Iguana left us speechless for days. I cannot even begin to relay how much It exceeded our expectations. We knew it was going to be very nice just given the location, but the photos don't do it justice, if you can imagine that. What you feel when you arrive and walk out to the deck is just instant euphoria. The crystal blue water and sunsets are unbelievable. We watched the sunset every night and each night was better than the last. The villa is beautifully decorated and the beds are very comfortable. Kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed along with various spices and condiments. Ron and Joyce were also very accommodating for us but we did not have the pleasure of meeting in person. Mariette met us on arrival and was just a wonderful, helpful person. She made sure we were happy and had everything we needed. Although the weather was hotter than average, we did not have any problem with the A/C only being in the bedrooms. The breeze was great and the entire back wall of sliding glass doors can be opened. We just didn't want to leave. We even named the reef in 'our' backyard and marked it (Sunset Reef) with a yellow stone. Diving the reef from the steps was easy and there was just so much life from entry to exit.
We also used Tropical Divers for our tank rentals. They are the only shop with steel, din tanks. They were just super nice and very knowledgeable about every dive site. If you go, tell them Diana and Roger will be back soon! There is also a shop right next door at the Belnam resort but we are partial to steel and our gear is set up for din. The resort is quiet and is basically a set of condos so it posed no privacy threat. It was just the two of us so we were very glad for that. There is also a clean dive locker with lock and huge rinse tanks, along with a shower outside which was great. I can't think of anything that could have been set up better. It was just perfect. It is also in a very safe, upscale location. There is a newer grocery store that is worth finding vs. the warehouse types we saw many of. The name escapes me but everything was extremely fresh and priced reasonably. The reef is already calling...We cannot wait to come back!!
