Love this location so peaceful, the stff is nice and gave us good price. A bit of a 10-15 minute pleasant walk to the plaza but so worth the peace and tranquility. Placed our slack there for around 3 days and nobody moved it or complained so yay! Awesome place for this by the way. Great beach area almost private.

I enjoyed this hotel a lot. It's the perfect spot to stay since it's right outside the center so you don't have any noise. The hotel is super nice and great staff with excellent service. I really enjoyed the 4 nights we stayed and they even welcome dogs. I really recommend it for relaxing on the beach.

The hotel and its area are quite nice but I don't stay at hotels to hang out at the hotel. I stay at hotels to get some sleep. The beds in this place are nothing more than foam mattresses. Cheap, crappy foam at that. This is my only complaint about an otherwise nice place to stay.

Thank you for your stay at Casa Iguana. We hope you enjoyed the excellent beachfront location and friendly service. We apologize for any inconvenience you may have felt, but perhaps there is a confusion between hotels. We noticed you wrote another review of A different hotel on the island as well. At Casa Iguana all the mattresses are Serta brand,... More

This hotel is right on the beach, five minutes waik from town and is in good condition. The staff is nice and you can see that they work hard to improve the place even more. The hotel is a bit basic without TV and pool, but very charming. The problem is that we could hear everything that the neighbour did.... More

As others have said it is not fancy but has the same view as the hotel next door at a quarter of the cost! Rear rooms looked... More

Lovely cabanas by the shore. Amazing ocean view from the rooms. A perfect romantic getaway. The greatest thing is that you step out of your door and into the sand. Even though it is nothing too fancy, I totally recommend it.
