I've been meaning to write this review for a few months now - the owners, Kenny and Sandra, were very hospitable and very down to earth. I arrived there in late June with 3 of my girlfriends, having called only a few hours before we arrived there to reserve our rooms. Since we were unfamiliar with Playa Hermosa, Sandra had... More

Coming during off season, we were lucky to be the only guests at the inn for 4 nights, and were able to stay in our room for 10USD/person/night. We stayed in the big room by the pool with a little kitchenette en suite. There was a ceiling fan which kept the room quite cool at night, and even a TV... More

We spend 5 days at the Iguana Inn and liked it very much ! The little swimming pool is very pleasant tucked away in the tropical garden and Sandra is adorable. The rooms are simple, basic and clean, and at night we could hear birds and frogs and howler monkeys near by... We would definitely go back for another vacation... More

This was a lovely little hostel, friendly staff, great little pool and close to the beach. We were concerned about hot nights prior to booking, but on their website some rooms were advertised with AC. There was no AC. We had an upstairs room and it was like a sauna, only one window and a fan, so no air flow.... More

I stayed there for one week to relax a little, work a little, swim, take sun and run. I got what I was looking for at a very good price. The owners are very friendly and ready to help. The beach is a one minute walk and is very nice, quiet and clean. I generally slept well and my fan... More

The rooms were not... More

A friend and I went to playa hermosa looking for a cheap quiet pacific beach. The beach was wonderful and not overcrowded, with beautiful sunsets. The first night we were there were stayed at the Iguana Inn. The Inn had a kitchen we could use and a very small clean pool. It was thirty dollars total for the two of... More
