La Iguana is a very nice place like home, clean, good service, all facilities and confort. Good experience to saty in old vallarta town, everything is near, restaurants, shops, bars, malecon, and can walk safety. A little noisy by nights because of close bars in the area, but the experience to be there is different to other hotels, Lupita makes... More

As a young couple, we liked this hotel mainly because of the location (it is walking distance from the seafront and the restaurant/clubs) and also it is newly furnished (aside from the TV), with all the necessary appliances in the kitchen for a long stay. Se had a room on the back part of the hotel so it was very... More

Last January we stayed here 2 months and we very much enjoyed it. We are going back this winter for sure. We particularly appreciated Eduardo's kindness and Lupita is always smiling. Our accommodations were well appointed with everything we needed, very clean, smoke free except on the roof terrace. We highly recommend it. Antonio and Anna

We rented a two bedroom apartment for 3 months. Location was very good/ close to everything (beach, shopping, restaurants & malicon). Accommodations were clean. Furniture was average. Pool area was very nice & well maintained. Staff was excellent, very accommodating & they did a great job. We were very pleased. Weather was excellent. It averaged 28C for 3 months. Rained... More

We liked walking through the unmarked door off the sidewalk, we felt more included in the old town culture. 4 blocks to the park, 5 to the waterfront. Easy to walk north to the more touristy stuff. Check out Abuelito's on the beach & ask for Anastasio if you want a crazy local to chat your ear off and convince... More

The place is really a good option to stay for a long period of time. It is in a great location by the Zona Romántica and everything is near by, the beach is just three blocks away. Very clean and cozy!!!

I really liked staying in a studio at La Iguana de Oro. It wasn't like staying in a hotel where you have personal services but The Hotel Encino was helpful at check-in and check out. The homey room came with a fully equipped kitchen, which I appreciated, and Lupita made sure that everything was very well maintained. I highly recommend... More

My wife and I stayed here for a month Dec 2012. After 2 nights of listening to the unbearable notice from the club across the street we asked for our money back so we could find another place. We couldn't get our money back, so we bought ear plugs, which helped. The noise from the bar goes on until 3... More

My husband and I stayed here a week before Christmas, and while we enjoyed our stay, it was extremely noisy. We were in studio #101, with a balcony facing the street. There is a male gay club next door and another across the street, so between 10 pm until 4 am, we could hear music and people outside. Even if... More
