We had the pleasure of staying at the Green Iguana. Small, quaint and very charming! The room was very clean, nicely decorated with a balcony and amazing view of the island! Its very convenient and centralized within walking distance (or short drive) to many attractions on the island. The innkeepers, John and Gwen did an excellent job in making you... More

You have described us PERFECTLY! Small (9 Rooms) Quaint (I love that word!) and charming! Our housekeeper Evie does a great job of keeping the Guest rooms clean!

We needed a place to stay for one night before flying back home and we stayed at The Green Iguana Hotel. The rooms were very spacious and very clean. Since we were only staying in ST.

We needed a place to overnight before catching the early morning ferry to Tortola for our sailing charter. This place was convenient, clean and exactly what we needed for our 12 hour stay. The owners arranged an airport pick up and drop off taxi for us. They even allowed us to mail some provisions to them before hand. We easily... More

Airline luggage fees can add up quickly! If you have special items you need to bring with you, we don't mind receiving a small box or two in advance of your stay. Do keep in mind we have just about anything you could desire here on St. Thomas! We are thankful we have a great relationship with a local taxi... More

John booked my reservation and helped me to schedule the private van pickup from Warren which we used many times during our stay on the island. Plenty of tour information from the post board in the hallway and you will love the tropical garden there.

John is great with our Guests! He loves to suggest day trips and evening outings. We are happy you used our bulletin board for the great entertainment St. Thomas has to offer, and yes, we DO love the tropical gardens! Thank you for reviewing us! See you again, soon? More

We first visited the GI almost 3 years ago and we fell in love with the resident managers John and Gwen and now we call them family! We have stayed at the GI 6-8 times and it is the cleanest, quietest, and comfiest place for individuals, couples and families. They have rooms with full kitchenettes and all of the cookware... More

John, you are one of our favorite repeat Guests! Since you and your wife have stayed in almost every one of our 9 rooms, even in the larger rooms with your daughters, you know the hotel almost as well as we do! We were happy to learn you were moving to STX with your family! It's much closer than Michigan!... More

If you are looking for some place beautiful, in a natural setting where you can safely relax and unwind, then this the place. Gwen & John go above and beyond in their hospitality. A very convenient location for all other points of interest. Postcard Vistas! Already planning my next visit!

I was looking for a place to stay for a couple of days after chartering in the B.V.I., and found the Green Iguana. It is not fancy, has no restaurant, no beach, but what it has is character, it also has John and Gwen, the managers. Right from the start, they made you feel like old friends, made sure everything...

Lost luggage is never good, especially when it contains needed medications! We had a slower day during your stay, and I needed to go to the store for Guest items anyway! You two were so friendly, WE felt as if we were old friends catching up! We are looking forward to your next visit! Cheers! More

What a welcoming, lovely hotel. We stayed here for only one night before a charter in the BVI, and we arrived well past 11pm with young children in tow. The rooms we had were clean and comfortable, and the location is convenient for the airport and the ferry dock. Gwen was helpful with everything from ferry schedules to getting taxis,... More

Your children are adorable! We don't have many families but were happy to meet yours. The marine port was only a 5 minute drive for me, and when you rely on your "mini computer" (phone) for so many things at home and while traveling, I really HAD to bring your phone to you!

We were 2 couples and this was my first time there. It was awesome! Gwen and John are the best. They helped chose an awesome room, suggested restaurants that were very good and helped us get a wonderful fishing trip with the Double Header Team. Can not wait to go again.
