What Past Guests Are Saying
Seattle, WA, United States
Rental 4 of 5
I personally stayed in the Ranas/Iguanas sister houses and had a great time. The houses are well laid out with the rooms spread out enough to give everyone their personal space. We also had our wedding and reception here for 45 guests and it was the perfect space. The beds were a bit hard but it's Mexico, what do you expect. We have already penciled in our 5 year anniversary in the Ranas/Iguanas because we had that much fun. We had a few minor issues that were generally attended to very quickly and the staff was good.
Washington DC, District of Columbia
I came here with my fiancée's family for a week getaway, I had never met them before so it was a whole experience. I arrived by myself and traveled to the villa by myself as well --had no trouble at all finding it. I think we all had a great time and found no major problems except that it may have been a little run down from the photos, most probably from continuous use by large groups of people. We decided to cook ourselves and there were enough utensils to easily do so. The kitchen is not anything luxurious, but it works! The best part was that there is a dock that allows you to walk down and get on your diving boat when they come pick you up, as well as getting back easily after they drop you off. There is also stairs leading to the ocean that you can climb down for snorkeling.

May family vacation
Some problems with Air condition in one bedroom that caused some of our party to move and then move again. problem could have been handled better. management person not real helpful
Monett, MO, United States
Loved the Houses!
We rented both the Villa Ranas and the sister property Villa Iguanas. Both were gorgeous, and exceeded our expectations. The only thing that might improve the property is an outdoor grill.
Thanks for the memories!

Fantastic Way to Bring the New Year In!
Villa Ranas accomodations met the needs of 6 couples.
The outside pool area and grounds offered a great place for everyone to gather. Although we were not on the beach we had wonderful access to the water and snorkeling. An additional benefit was that we had easy access to a dock and dive operation.
Ruben and Maria were wonderful in taking care of our needs while there. The cook service was fantastic and would highly recommend it.
Cristina was very helpful in answering all of our questions.
Our group did not want to leave and look forward to coming back soon!
Plymouth, MN, United States
My Husband and I took our 6 adult children and 2 of their spouses on a family vacation. We loved staying at the Villa because we could all be together yet, there was plenty of room for each to have privacy. Roberto and Maria were wonderful, always there to help and did a great job of keeping the villa clean. The website states there is a washer and dryer, however, they were not for guest use but Maria washed our clothes for us which was very nice. The accomodations were wonderful with the exception of a grill which would have been very useful as we did all our own cooking. We recommend the Villa Ranas Sur to everyone!!
Good location for a dive trip
The location and villa were pretty good. We had no problems and enjoyed ourselves. The property is large enough that you can get-away from the group when you want to. The only negatives were that the property could use a barbeque grill (even a cheap one!) and it needs a few more outside chairs / lounges.
Great stay. We will return!
Our cook Lucy was fantastic. Her assistant Candi was very nice.
Victor went out of his way to help us with anything we asked (even though he oversaw the Iguanas property) He was extremely kind and helpful.
However, the one thing that I would like to see improve is the beds. They were very hard and not comfortable.
Dawn H.'s review of Villa Ranas Sur 6 Bedroom Seafront Villa
The dive boat was able to pick us up right near the property which was wonderful. We found out that if you walk to San Fransisco Beach after 5 you could use the water activities free. The pool was awesome. We really enjoyed that fact that there was not anyone staying in the Iguana Sur so we had the pool all to ourselves.
Villa Ranas with 13 family members
The Villa Ranas is lovely and in a beautiful spot. The caretakers, Maria and Rober were very good and took great care of the house. We had a wonderful time. There were 2 things that need improvement. The beds are all incredibly hard and all the guests complained about that. Also, there is no BBQ. The addition of a gas grill would have been great. We would have cooked outside instead of in the house. Overall, this was a wonderful place to stay and I woudl recommend it
John H.'s review of Villa Ranas Sur 6 Bedroom Seafront Villa
The on site chefs and assistants were great!!!!!!!!!! Very helpful, great cooks and gratious!!!!!
Lakewood, Co, United States
Gries stay at Villa Ranas
Sign on front...TINY and difficult to find in the dark...esp since it is after Villa Iguanas and when driving, very difficult to see. Since our plane was 2 hours late, we got in after dark because we needed to stop at the store on the way.
Kitchen needs some real updating and cleaning. Shelves are a little dirty, especially where high and the staff cannot reach. Refridge door shuts poorly. Purified water was handy and good.
Toaster was broken and not replaced. Villa needs an electric juicer (places I have rented before had one). Knives were un-usable they were so dull...we bought some and left them. Bought extra glasses, as we needed larger ones...left them there.
Phone information not clear. Website said no long distance calls, note inside the villa said free long distance calls to US and Canda? Which one?
We didn't use it in either case.
"Message" about not putting toilet paper in commode was behind the doors...which means some did not read it as they did not close this door when in the private suites.
A dishwasher would be make this much nicer because we had to do dishes ourselves most of the time...breakfast dishes were generally the only ones for Maria to do.
La Habra, CA, United States
Wonderful stay in cozumel.
We did this trip primarily because we wanted to dive, but several people who came did not dive and rented scooters to go around the island. They had a great time too. This was a wonderful trip and the house made it worth it. My only complaint was that the pool was a little cold for my taste, but the house was impecable and we completely enjoyed our stay. I would recommend this house to anyone.

ranas sur.. we're talkin' HOT!!!!!
overall... a really neat house, one you like to explore. BUT.. the lack of air conditioning in the greatroom, ie., living, dining, and kitchen is a major drawback. maybe it was a bad time when we arrived, maybe there was no breeze, the sun was hot, who knows? it was devastatingly hot. even fulvio, when he came in to greet us (a very nice gesture indeed)was wringing with perspiration when he left the house. i understand NOW as he explained, you never advertised the house was fully air-conditioned.. but in this day and age, really now.. it's just expected. it was so hot we could not, as our family from disparate parts of the country likes to do, cook meals there and gather in the living room. that was disappointing. otherwise, the staff was very nice. so was the place, but just too..darned..hot!
Las Vegas, Nevada, United States
I can not say enough about how beautiful and clean the property
The only complaint I would have is there is no ac in the kitchen or living room, but the ac does work wonderfully in the rooms

Villas Ranas Sur
We had a wonderful time. We took our entire family! Twelve of us went. There was plenty of room. We loved it. Town was farther than I thought. Next time I would do my own grocery shopping. There is a large market in town.
Response from At Home In Cozumel Inc - 06/30/2008
The owner of Ranas put a lot of thought and effort in maintinain his homel We're glad you liked it. Shopping for food in town is fun. But getting the cook service for a few days is fun too. Anyway, we hope to see you again soon.

Robert B.'s review of 6 BR Oceanfront Villa with Pool. Cook Svce
This is an excellent property; large, light, and comfortable, with wonderful views. The snorkeling also was quite good. The location is excellent if you want a quiet spot about 15 minutes by car from down town, if you hire a cook (especially Isabelle), or if you like to cook yourself. The only potential drawback is the drive to town and restaurants. However, that was no drawback to us.
Eagle, CO, United States
Needs a facelift!
The photos on this property are misleading because it does not show that the entire home needs a new coat of paint and to be updated. The kitchen and appliances are old and need to be remodeled/replaced. The staff was nice and the cook service was great.

Harriet E.'s review of 6 BR Oceanfront Villa with Pool. Cook Svc
The house is lovely and the staff did what they could to make us comfortable, but there are repairs that were needed--doors that would not close, air conditioners that were too cold or too hot, shabby linen, no soap in the baths and no internet. There are ants everywhere, not enough table space for the family to sit for a meal. We had the feeling that the owner did not really care about the property and was only interested in getting money for it--withoug regard to the comfort of guests or their recommendation. No we would not recommend it. For ony a few hundred dollars it could be made much nicer--new sheets and towels, good soap in the baths, throw rugs at the doors, a working internet, better and more furniture, matching plates, wine glasses (we used plastic cups for wine at dinner!). The staff was helpful and friendly--although they had very limited English and no manager came around regularly. (I looked for her for several days--was told by the guards at the near-by place she managed also that she would be back in 'an hour'; in 'two hours' -- she never showed! The male manager we were supposed to have we never saw at all. Earlier in the trip before we had the problems with the internet, etc. She was helpful, but when she realized we would never be able to get the computer access promised, she disappeared.)
Getting to the water cold be made so much easier if steps like those several houses away were provided.
We had a wonderful time, but not because of the villa--almost in spite of it. My name is spelled Harryette and I would be happy to describe it to any prospective guest. If the changes are made (and I wrote about them immediately upon return) I would like to know about it so I could have a better feeling about the Villa.
