We stayed here for one night before transferring to St John. Accommodations were great. The room was big and the bed was comfortable. I chose a unit with a full kitchen because I was brining frozen food. The owners are very nice and very helpful.

If you are looking for a spotlessly clean hotel, centrally based and with real character, look no further. Gwen and John, the resident owner/managers were warm and welcoming. Our room was huge, seriously had everything you'd expect - and MORE! In addition, you can borrow almost any kitchen appliance you could imagine. There is free wifi, an abundance of towels... More

The Green Iguana is a great place to stay - neat rooms with lots of amenities - microwave and kitchenette. Very nice atmosphere - lots of plants surrounding a common sitting area outside, but the best part of the atmosphere are John and Gwen, the innkeepers. We have stayed for years in a row and they make us feel so... More

My fiance and I spent 8 days here. Prior to our stay we received an email about transportation to the Hotel. Our room was clean, roomy and quiet. This is a small 9 room Hotel, well taken care of by John and Gwen. They are very personable and professional. Each morning we were greeted and they always asked about our... More

A two hour late ferry ride into St. Thomas from Tortola (that's another story) caused my wife and me to miss our flight to Atlanta. But our disappointment was soon replaced by a lovely extra day in the Caribbean. The Green Iguana was recommended to us by another hotel in town that was booked and it turned out great. Large...

My husband and I spent our honeymoon in St. Thomas at the Green Iguana. It was a wedding gift from my husband's cousin, and it was the greatest gift we could have received! The property manager's Gwen and John greeted us with open arms! John met us at the airport and took us to the hotel. On the car ride... More

I was trying to book at Blackbeard's and found it was closed. The person that answered the phone gave me the number for the Green Iguana. I called and spoke with John. We needed to book a room for 2 nights before we went on a sailing trip and another night on our return before heading home. John was very... More

I'm not sure how this place got such a high rating. When you check in and your room smells of favliosa cleaning and nothing else. You walk down an ally to get to the walking path to the restaurant recommendation and the walk said to be right over there takes 45 minutes something is wrong. The hotel is dated, has... More

The is an amazing hotel on the hillside of Charlotte Amelie, away from the hustle and bustle of the busy town. However, it is only a few minutes down hill to get meals in the town and when your legs give out there are handy taxis, especially if you want to eat further afield. Start your town tour at Blackbeard's... More
