John and Gwen were a wealth of information. It was exactly what I was looking for in a hotel. Comfortable, casual, and convenient. And the stairs made for a great workout! Can't wait to come back. I stayed in the most basic of rooms that they have, and it was the best. I can imagine that a balcony room would... More

John and I are always learning about the new activities, restaurants and special events, much of our information comes from our Guests! After returning to the Hotel from a full day, Guests (like yourself) often stop in the office to tell us about their "most amazing day"! We, in turn, pass that information on to future Guests looking for a... More

This is hotel is like a dream! So cozy and private! Breathtaking view from balcony! Just sit out in the morning and drink in the view of the bay and the city coming to life. Stairs are great exercise! and invigorating! and there are sites along the way even a hidden museum! If you cant do stairs, taxi is right... More

The Green Iguana Hotel is a great spot for a quiet, romantic honeymoon! Or just a getaway with your favorite person! Since we are in the Island's Historic District, there are so many little "first lady" gardens, fountains and statues, along with the museums and places of interest just a short walk from The Hotel. Some of our Guests do... More

We stayed here one night on our way to Jost Van Dyke and again on our trip back. I can not say enough how awesome Gwen and John were. Upon arrival we buzzed in and were greeted with a very happy HELLO! Checked in and quickly went to our room to drop off our bags as we wanted to get... More

We agree, the view from the upper floor is amazing! We just can't agree if the view is better by day (yachts and sailboats and ferrys and sea planes) or by night! The light below us are so pretty at night! Don't forget to look up and see the stars! Orion is the prominent constellation with an occasional dipper! From... More

The hotel's excellent location on top of the hill makes for relaxing and stunning views 24/7, whether you have a balcony or not in your room you will love the view. VERY comfortable beds and pillows and a relaxed casual atmosphere where the hotel managers Gwen and John make you feel like family. Gwen and John went out of their... More

Truthfully, we cannot wait for your next trip! There is so much to do here on St. Thomas and the neighboring islands, we loved hearing about your day. I think the only time you were not excited was when you had to board your plane! We know you already have your next adventure planned, minute by minute! Enjoy! More

Bright and clean rooms with excellent air conditioning which we really appreciated. The hotel is in a superb location atop the hillside of St. Thomas next to Blackbeards' Castle. Beds were very comfortable and best of all the service and hospitality was outstanding. FYI and go to the castle at night for drinks or dinner. Incredible view. Highly recommend and... More

I imagine you would need a good air conditioner this time of year coming from Washington state to the tropics! Remember, these temperatures ARE our winter temperatures!

Spent one night at the laid-back Green Iguana after a sailing charter and before catching a flight home. Perfect spot if you're looking for an affordable, comfortable and clean place to get your sea legs and spend a little time in Charlotte Amalie.

You've heard the old saying "Getting there is half the fun?" We feel going home should be equally as fun! Relaxing for a night or two at The Green Iguana Hotel is great for transitioning from sea legs to land legs! Next trip, try to plan another day to stroll through the museums and gardens that are featured in the... More

With only staying one night on St. Thomas we booked the Green Iguana based on price, location and it’s not a chain. We didn’t want frills; just a safe, comfortable place to rest our heads before embarking to the BVI’s the following morning. Location. Close to the airport – perhaps 10 minutes and I believe it was an $8.00 per... More

The Green Iguana Hotel was the perfect layover on my way to meet family for a sail in the BVI. Gwen & John were graciously welcoming & helpful in every way.

Your BVI Adventure with your family sounded like it was what everyone was hoping for! We don't mind being a "stepping stone" to other islands! Many of our Guests tell us we are a great "de-tox" zone.... de-tox from their daily lives, AND de-toxing from the sun on their way back home! We do hope you will invite your family... More

In February, we stayed @ the Green Iguana and we so totally surprised with all the amenities. The location was perfect for shopping, only drawback was we had to return from town via taxi, which was not a real problem as Gwen was able to give us our own personal service (Willy's Taxi Service).
