We along with three other couples completed a 7 day sailing trip of the BVI. We ended our trip with a two night stay at the Green Iguana with John and Gwen. We were welcomed with open arms and settled into our cozy rooms complete with fridge,coffee maker, warm showers and comfy bed. After being on a sailboat this was... More

If you're in need of anything, and I do mean anything, just ask..... John & Gwen will take care of any needs or concerns as soon as humanly possible.....they're truly the icing on the cake when...

We enjoy going to St. John. To get there, you have to fly into St. Thomas. We have always talked about staying on St. Thomas, and decided to start our 25 anniversary trip to St. John there. We decided to stay at the Green Iguana. We got there the morning of April 12th. John met us at the door and... More

We stayed at the Green Iguana for two nights after a BVI sail. It is a friendly, casual place and the hosts, Gwen & John were VERY responsive to questions and requests. Gwen printed our boarding passes and arranged a taxi while John shared some of his special cheese! The room was clean with a lovely balcony view of the... More

Only nine rooms of different configurations. We occupied H1 & H2 for a few nights. Everything you need is at this special place. What makes it the best is Gwen & John. There is no limit to what these two fine people will do for you. If a wonderful experience is what you're looking for, then stay at this property.

You did a wonderful job explaining how great The Green Iguana Hotel is! We have enjoyed this little island AND this little hotel for many years and our heart warms when we read comments such as yours! We learn as much from our Guests and you do from us. With the great balconies on H1 and H2, you had great... More

As they have very little on their website, and there is a reason for that. It is by no means a RESORT LEVEL QUALITY, OR A QUICK STROLL THROUGH A PICTURESQUE STREETS TO TAKE YOU TO CHARLOTTE AMALIE. 1) They only have a 7 gallon hot water tank, so you will enjoy cold showers. 2) The quick stroll to get...

We are very sorry you misinterpreted our advertising and our Guest philosophy. We are listed on Trip Advisor in the Top 5 Small Hotel on St. Thomas for good reason! It is an honor we have enjoyed since 2010 and hope to for many years to come. We realize we are not the perfect vacation spot for all travelers, however... More

My best friend (for over 40 years), and I met at the Green Iquana in late January for a 5 day "get away". It was the perfect spot to retreat to, away from the freezing Minnesota weather! The hotel is perched up on a hill over looking the harbor and the town of Charlotte Amalie. Lovely breezes cool the room,... More

Somehow we know you will be back next winter! Reunions, small or large, are always welcome! To see your excitement when your friend arrived, we knew you two would be enjoying your time together! Since our winter was a little on the cool side, you were able to acclimate from the Minnesota winter to our "summer like" weather! We think... More

My husband and I stayed here while on a mini-vacation from Boston's brutal winter for our birthday. John and Gwen are wonderfully nice people, and willing to accommodate you with just about anything.

The winter was a brutal one wasn't it? We helped a lot of folks escape for a winter warm up, and some who extended their adventures because of closed (or closing) airports! We are happy you had a great birthday getaway and hope you will plan your adventure further in advance next winter, so we can visit longer! Call us... More

What a great way to end our 9 day sailing trip. We appreciated the comfortable beds, big rooms,plenty of hot water, kitchenette with free coffee. The views were amazing. The rooms were very clean. John (manager) made our visit so comfortable. It felt more like visiting family. We will go back again and stay at this "hidden treasure" longer.

There is so much to do on St. Thomas, it's sometimes difficult to decide WHAT to do! With our many beautiful beaches, the history of the island just a short walk from The Green Iguana, the ferry service to the other islands within 10-20 minute walk, shopping, eating...... another difficult decision..... where to eat!
