When we arrived my first impression of the room was "oh no what have we got ourselves into". After staying at the larger hotels in Nuevo Vallarta such as the Riu this was a bit of a shock. 10 days later we could not be happier. Yes the rooms are plain and some maintenance is needed but they were clean... More

Stayed here Dec 27 until Jan 5. Read many of the reviews before booking and thought this would be a nice small quiet clean affordable place to stay. I would NEVER recommend this hotel to anyone!! First night there, we woke up at 2 am to music blasting, partying, and screaming, This lasted until 530 am and management did absolutely... More

myself and my girlfriemd found this place on Expedia. Don't let those pretty pictures fool you. Upon getting our room, I immediately started looking for another place to stay. It stunk of mold or mildew. And quite frankly, I was nervous to even sit on the couch, let alone sleep in the bed. We were also informed if we used... More

Found this little gem quite by mistake. If you wantt a real flavour of Mexico be sure to check it out. We originally booked a two bedroom, one bath. We upgraded to the three bedroom two bath. Great well kept pool and grounds. Kitchen is very adequate for cooking all your meals or just breakfast and lunch as we did.... More

Casa Iguana is a 3-star hotel, 20 km from the edge of town, on the wrong side of the (well-travelled) highway from the beach. There are scores of hotels just like this between here & PV. Corona Extra costs $30MX. After New Year's (today is Jan 4 2015) you can do a ****lot**** better for your money ($1250MX tax inc).... More

I went there with all my family, we really never will go back here, even if they pay us for it, people who works here don't have any idea how to treat clients, they don't tell you if you use the dishes you'll have to wash them and they are not ready to receive too much people, they don't have...

It was great to go South of Puerto Vallarta this trip to escape the tourists at Casa Iguana. As a single mom with my 10 year old we felt very safe in this area. Across the main street was Mismaloya beach with the usual restaurants and chairs you can use. Loved the landscaping and sitting out on the balcony looking... More

Casa Iguana is an old picturesque hotel nestled against a jungle encased mountain. The grounds hold mature and very well kept landscaping. The plants are blooming and lush. Wildlife includes many varieties of butterflies, birds of fabulous colors, geckos and iguanas too. Best of all for me was the fireflies. The restaurant is adequate and clean as are the rooms....

We loved our stay here at the Casa Iguana. Only thing that keep a excellent review is a little maintenance. Our burner did not work but he desk quickly provided a counter top 2 burner for us to use. We also didn't have a coffee maker but the desk gave us a coffee maker no problem. The staff is great,... More
