The island is amazing and you definitely want to stay Ina place close to the beach and close to the center! I super recommend this hotel, excellent service and super staff and very helpful host. The hotel organized our transport from the airport and even helped us with activities.

If you're looking for a good, nice, spacious and comfortable room this is not the place. But, if you are looking for a nice hotel and an unforgetable experience this is not the place either. You will end up paying thousands more than what it actually cost. This hotel is overpriced!!! And it is not true you can't get a... More

We payed 105$ for BB and I'm not sure it was a good idea! This island is perfect even if u stay in less fancy hotel. Everything is close there! The breakfast is so pure that u need a second breakfast after it. Nobody speaks English. After 22:00 no one is at the lobby to help u and till 8-9... More

Love this location so peaceful, the stff is nice and gave us good price. A bit of a 10-15 minute pleasant walk to the plaza but so worth the peace and tranquility. Placed our slack there for around 3 days and nobody moved it or complained so yay! Awesome place for this by the way. Great beach area almost private.

I enjoyed this hotel a lot. It's the perfect spot to stay since it's right outside the center so you don't have any noise. The hotel is super nice and great staff with excellent service. I really enjoyed the 4 nights we stayed and they even welcome dogs. I really recommend it for relaxing on the beach.

The view from my room was breathtaking, the location is beautiful with a very short and lovely walk into town were every meal I had was delicious!

The hotel and its area are quite nice but I don't stay at hotels to hang out at the hotel. I stay at hotels to get some sleep. The beds in this place are nothing more than foam mattresses. Cheap, crappy foam at that. This is my only complaint about an otherwise nice place to stay.

At Casa Iguana all the mattresses are Serta brand,... More

This hotel is right on the beach, five minutes waik from town and is in good condition. The staff is nice and you can see that they work hard to improve the place even more. The hotel is a bit basic without TV and pool, but very charming. The problem is that we could hear everything that the neighbour did.... More

As others have said it is not fancy but has the same view as the hotel next door at a quarter of the cost! Rear rooms looked... More
