This hotel is under new management and they are much friendlier and more helpful than the previous. Many things have been redone, breakfast was great and as always the location is perfect. The ground floor room was a little loud but it was a Saturday night so this can be expected. Excellent for the price!

Nice accommodation, well located and with an amazing terrace where breakfast is served. Owner is very friendly and helpful sharing his knowledge and expertise of the area. Bathrooms needs an upgrade; part of the investments we were told already planned.

I stayed here for a week and had a really hard time leaving. Bayahibe is a great little town, and Villa Iguana has a great location right in its center. Plenty of restaurants nearby, with the beach, dive shops, convenience store, bank, bars, etc less than a 5 minute walk away. The hotel itself is excellent and exceeded my needs.... More

Based on the fact that Bayahíbe is a small village, I wasn't expecting accommodations here to be extravagant 5-diamond service (as one previous reviewer seemed to have expected): all I was looking for was a spacious room with air conditioning, and a working shower. I ended up getting those three check marks on my list, as well as the bonuses... More

Hotel Iguana was a highlight of my trip. Totally rocking rooftop breakfasts each morning overlooking the bay. Unbeatable fruit and orange juice with coffee. Was so nice to wake up to this view and chill in the rooftop pool. Friendly family run place which made for great conversation with other guest too. The staff know about every nook and cranny...

Alex and Kirsten are super friendly and helpful. Both are dive instructors and full of local knowledge. The rooftop pool is a great place to desalinate after a dive. Rooms are adequately priced, clean, quiet, and a couple minutes walk from the beach. Mike Zinsley
