I'm glad I chose Hotel Villa Iguana! Stayed for a week, and it was just perfect! I can even say it is a Luxury Bed and Breakfast Hotel! The best place to stay! Located in the center of the charming little village Bayahibe (near you can find a few local mini markets, bars, cafes, about 7 min. walking distance to... More

We had a great time at Villa Iguana (stayed for 2 nights). Nice breakfest, clean and well equipped rooms (e.g. safe, kitchenette, balcony), nice patio, very close to the beach and the city centre, wifi worked fine too. I´d also like to thank to the owners - they were so extremely helpful and nice - gave us answers to our... More

We stayed for 3 nights at Villa Iguana and it was just perfect! The owners and the people that work here are super nice and really helpful. It is located in the centre of Bayahibe and you're in between all the divecenters. When you wake up you can start the day with a dive, and the underwaterworld here is simply... More

We really found this hotel perfect for our needs; center of Bayahibe and only two blocks from the beach front. Very friendly people and clean adequate accommodations. We went for a scuba diving weekend and would quickly return to Villa Iguana! Gotta LOVE Gallos (Roosters) y Perros (dogs) to love Bayahibe; they are everywhere :-) !

It may be that the whole town of Bayahibe has this problem, but the only down side to this hotel was the rooster in the house next door that crowed for more than 12 hours a day starting very early in the a.m. In the 3 mornings we were there, the rooster started crowing at 4:01, 3:57 and 4:08 a.m....

Villa Iguana was a great introduction to DM. The hotel arranged our pick-up from Punta Cana airport and happily let us arrive quite late. Both Stefano and Alessandro were more than helpful, really friendly with many great suggestions for what to do in town. As mentioned below their suggested beach out past the baseball field is a good find with... More

We were two couples travelling around the DR. Our first stop after arriving at Punta Cana airport was Bayahibe, We didn't want the usual "all inclusive resort" experience. We wanted to see the real Dominican Republic, so we rented a car to explore around. Bayahibe is a tiny and relaxed town. Villa Iguana appeared to be one of the best... More

I stayed for three nights and I loved the customer service. From the minute I walked in Alex and his brother Stefano did everything they could to make me feel at home. Alex is the person that gave me directions to what became my favourite beach in Bayahibe and loads more tips on how to move around and how much... More

IMPORTANT NOTE: Cash is important! Almost no one in town takes credit or debit cards, and if they do, they usually impose a 30% fee!!! So, make sure to have cash on hand BEFORE eating or going anywhere. The only place I found that will accept credit or debit without a fee is La Defensa (which actually has decent prices... More
