The Green Iguana, We stayed here overnight on a trip to St Thomas. The hotel is in a quiet location next door to Blackbeard’s Castle. The owners were away when we went and their covering managers greeted us and took us to our room. The room and bathroom was very clean and comfortable. We had a fridge, coffee maker, microwave...

This was a great place to stay for me and my girlfriend. The room was great and the staff was very friendly. It was my 1st time there and I loved it. It has a great view on to the bay. It was the best hotel I ever stayed at.

Thank you for your short and sweet review! The view is amazing to say the least! We enjoy morning rainbows (on rainy mornings), AMAZING Sunsets, and there's nothing like a cold beverage on the balcony to watch the harbor traffic, including the sea planes coming in and taking off! We look forward to seeing you again! More

I needed to fly to St Thomas for a family emergency and made very last minute arrangements at the Green Iguana based on a recommendation from a friend. I arrived late, but Gwen, the hotel manager said she would be available at whatever time I needed. She showed me to a room that was perfect. A small kitchenette, nice bedroom... More

Thank you for finding us, even if it were just one night. We do realize the airlines can and do change your flight plans, for weather related and maintenance issues.
