After having my US Airways flight canceled my husband and I were forced to stand in sweltering heat for 4 hours to wait for hotel and taxi vouchers. The very rude US Airways representative placed us in a hotel called Midtown Guest House in a very dangerous neighborhood near a brothel. Needless to say these accommodations were unacceptable so I...

My husband and I recently stayed at the Green Iguana with friends for a couple days before our sailing charter out of Tortola. We couldn't have asked for more gracious hosts! Gwen and John went out of their way to make us feel welcome at their hotel. It didn't take long to feel like we had known them for a... More

We had a great stay at the Green Iguana Hotel. The service was great and the owners made sure our group had all we needed. They even took a picture of our group and made a post card of it and gave us all a copy. What a momento! The hotel is convenient to walking to downtown. The rooms were... More

The rooms were great. I arrived one day early and stayed in a room equiped with a kitchen. Very good location. Walked everywhere. If you don't want to walk, call a cab or take one of the safari buses. I did all three. There was a post office just at the bottom of the hill from The Green Iguana Hotel.... More

Our room was on the upper level, and had a wonderful view of the city. The room was clean, everything worked right, free WiFi, really really comfy bed. On the other hand, it is located on the side of a hill, and there's stairs to go up to the room, or down to street level, or further down to the... More

We are surprised to hear you thought the property had that many stairs! Compared to many hotels and inns on St. Thomas, ours are minimal! 3 Steps to enter the hotel, 6 rooms are ground level, 2 rooms 1 floor walkup and 1 room is 2 levels down. Also we are located next to BLACKBEARD's Castle, a common faux pas... More

Green Iguana was a great choice for us. It is on Blackbeard's Hill, at the top of 99 Steps. We exercise a lot, so the walking and climbing was fine. If you don't want to walk, make sure you have a car. John and Gwen are wonderful. They go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. It is... More

Our group of 8 adults just spent 3 nights at The Green Iguana and were very pleased with it.

The six of us stayed here prior to returning home from our charter sail trip in the BVI. We reserved the rooms knowing we'd need to stay prior to an early flight back to the states.

I really don't want to let people know about this great hotel because reservations might become difficult to get. Clean, comfortable, quaint and a great location (only 10 minute taxi ride to the ferry dock) and very affordable. The proprietors are so accommodating and friendly. They really want you to have a good experience.
