The Gilded Iguana is an adorable little hotel, and we thoroughly enjoyed the 3 nights we stayed there. It looks even better in person than it does on the website! Our room was cozy, clean, and perfect for us. It was such a friendly atmosphere - Joellen and her staff really seem to do their best to make everyone feel at home. Matt and Nick were especially helpful. The location can't be beat - it's a very short walk to a beautiful beach. The restaurant's food was tasty and fairly priced, especially considering its remote location. The hammocks in the backyard are a nice touch, and the little waterfall in the pool is also nice. You can rent bikes for $10 next door to the hotel for 24 hours. Don't miss the live music on Tuesdays and Fridays - when we were there on a Tuesday night, it was so much fun! Keep up the good work, Gilded Iguana!
