This little hotel is simply perfect for us. We travel to Puerto Vallarta 4 times a year and have stayed at the highest rated all inclusives and found Casa Iguana to be a welcome change. Check in took 2 minutes with a friendly staff! When we arrived at the suite there was a welcome letter with a complimentary bottle of... More

This was our second trip to this great hotel. Puerto Vallarta is a great place to visit and eating local food makes for a complete trip. This hotel gets you out of the bustle of the city but is central to what we like to see. It is a short trip to the botanical gardens, which is a must. Water... More

Well designed, well maintained small hotel. We pd $42/nt for 8 nights. Restaurant is very good, inexpensive. Opens late (8:30 am) and closes early (8:00 pm). I asked for a beer with dinner. They don't have it, but you can buy it in the store at the hotel and drink it in the rest. I asked for red wine, which... More

Casa Iguana is a nice little hotel and is great for a family. Their prices are reasonable, the rooms are simple but clean, and they have a nice courtyard with a pool to play in. It is walking distance to the zoo (a must do), the beach, and several resturaunts. There is bus service to PVR for 8 pesos per... More

My travel companion and I spent a month at this hotel in August of 2014. I loved the setting. It is right smack in the middle of the jungle. We were on the top floor and loved the view looking out at the beautiful vegetation, and the well kept grounds below were a pleasant sight as well. Watching the rain... More

The hotel is nice, far from the hustle and bustle of the city. The hot tub was excellent and the pool was a bit cold but ok. The suite was big, two bedrooms plenty of space, small kitchen, and living room. The hotel is a bit out dated. The blinds on the windows are dirty and they look like they... More

I love the property: mature trees and vegetation, snuggled up against the rain forest jungle. Not slick, not chi-chi, just nice white adobe buildings, with a nice tiled small pool and hot tub. Comfortable bed. Useable kitchen. Yes -- this is the tropics with the humidity, the jungle smells. When we were there, the locals of Mizmaloya were running a... More

I truly wish I could rate this accommodation higher, however some things simply aren't negotiable; safety is one of them. But I'll get to that shortly. Let's begin on a positive note. Casa Iguana is situated in a lovely location: being in Mismaloya, it is not only near Puerto Vallarta, but Boca de Tomatlan, el Tuito, and Yelapa. It's a... More
