Quaint, comfortable and clean accommodations at a fair price. What more could you want? Well, you’ll also get friendly on-site owners who are extremely accommodating and friendly. We especially enjoyed the peaceful, shady balcony early in the morning to enjoy a cup of coffee while watching St Thomas come to life. We will definitely be back!

Watching the sun come up over the hillside and bring life to the valley below us is one of our favorite enjoyments too. Did you see a morning rainbow during your stay? Amazing! And the sunsets in the evening with a nice glass of wine! And during the day as the boats, ferrys and sea planes cross the harbor. After nearly 8 years as managers of this quaint little spot, we never tire of the view! Can't wait to have you back! Enjoy!

Property's Favorite Review
I stayed at the Green Iguana for a few days while attending some meetings in Charlotte Amalie. It was the perfect little retreat at the end of a long and busy workday. The staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly, the room was clean and had an amazing view of both the harbor and the hills of St. Thomas. It is within walking distance of many shops and restaurants but far enough away from the hustle and bustle to allow for a quiet environment with just a few birds chirping outside the window. There seems to be quite a few choices for rooms, but mine included a sitting area, TV, dining table, as well as a workspace. It was perfectly set up for my worktrip but would have also worked perfectly for a vacation. I would highly recommend whether for a quick stay or a long-term vacation.

Thanks Meaghan! You had one of our larger rooms, it was the only one available for your stay! We are happy that you found your accommodations just perfect for your worktrip, and hope you will be back for a more relaxing stay in the very near future! Most Guests do comment on how quiet it is just 150 feet above the Town! We hope to see you very soon!

We needed a place to spend a night after a 10 day sailing vacation. The hotel owners were welcoming hosts who made sure we knew where to get a bite to eat just down the hill (the Green House). Beds were comfy, the view was excellent, and the AC was cold. I loved the vibe of the place - like you were in your own secluded haven with lovely gardens surrounding you.

Thank you Greg! And thanks for introducing us to the travel blog you found us on! Many of our Guests think John and I are the owners, however we "just work here!" The owner of the property is wonderful to allow us to be so welcoming to so many travelers. The Green House Restaurant is one of our favorite restaurants, it's so nice to be so close to the hotel and have such a great menu! Come enjoy the gardens again, soon! Safe Travels!

The GI deserves all its superb reviews. It is thoughtfully curated and the hosts are welcoming and attentive. If we go back, we would definitely stay there. Absolutely charming, convenient, excellent drinking water and AC.

Diana, thank you for enjoying your stay with us! As a small boutique styled hotel, we try to keep the décor as Caribbean as possible! Charming was our first thought as well. We do have awesome water, we filter it on site with many filters, to bring you the best tasting water on St. Thomas. It helps to keep those single use plastic bottles out of our ever growing landfill as well! Please do come back, we just keep getting better!

We stayed at Green Iguana for one night prior to going on a weeklong sail through the BVIs. It was the perfect place to stay to explore the area and get a great night's rest. The view from our room (H2), the easy walk (and welcome workout going up and down the 100 steps) to town and kind hosts Gwen and John made us very happy we chose Green Iguana. The room was very comfortable with plenty of space, the balcony was lovely where we enjoyed a nightcap overlooking the lights of town and the AC and hot water could not have worked better. Even for our short stay, we enjoyed chatting with Gwen and John and they were there to give hugs as we departed. We stayed at another hotel for a night at the end of our trip and if I could go back and do things differently we would have instead returned back to Green Iguana. We look forward to visiting again if we return to St. Thomas.

Hi Lauren, We have so many return guests that use The Green Iguana Hotel as a "pass through" to their charter or villa in the British Virgin Islands, coming AND going! Did we mention H2 is a personal favorite of ours? The balcony is amazing for watching the lights on the harbor and in the Town, plus the amazing sunsets and sunrises and RAINBOWS! Please do return as soon as possible! Hugs will always be free!
