Wasn't Carnival FUN! So many activities just a short walk from The Green Iguana Hotel! This was the island's 60th Carnival Celebration! You will be able to reminisce this fall as MTV's Real World cast was in the Adult Parade!

Not as expensive as a resort, although things ARE expensive in the Virgin Islands, in general. We like getting away from the chain hotels and restaurants - if you are traveling somewhere different, why stay in or eat at a place that you might find in your home town??!! Room was nicely decorated and included a full kitchen. AC was a treat. Location is an easy walk down in to town (yes, bit more challenging going back UP but we used a taxi, especially at night, after dinner). Gwen and John are the "hosts" and are very accommodating. And, yes, fabulous lizards everywhere, and iguanas all around!!

Thank you for saying "we are not a resort!" We feel we have more to offer than the 'resorts' do! We are close to town, and to beaches all over the island. John and I enjoy finding "the Mom and Pops" when travel and strive to be just that. The Island Charm of The Green Iguana Hotel is what drew us to this property 11 years ago!

My wife and I stayed here bookending a week's stay on Virgin Gorda. We really enjoyed the effort that Gwen and John put into making us feel comfortable. We walked back and forth to all the stores on Main Street and the attractions on the waterfront with little difficulty. We did find that the cabbies were not eager to take us there, either from the waterfront or from the airport. I would not recommend trying to hand carry or roll any significant luggage up the "99 steps" unless you're really fit. We didn't see anyone trying it. We appreciated the in room refrigerator for keeping foodstuffs we were carrying to VG cold (in a thermal bag). Yes, we did hear roosters crowing but found that easy to disregard. We felt completely safe walking about. Only time we were apprehensive was in the cabs....the roads are terrible and the cabbies drive just on the edge of control. I would never rent a car to drive here. Moving from an "H" room on our arrival to an "A" room on our departure resulted in our only tiny disappointment, the inability to sleep in on the morning of our departure due to the intensity of the sunlight penetrating the hanging strips hanging before the sliding doorway onto the lovely balcony. We would love to stay here again should we return to Charlotte Amalie.

Room Tip: Tell Gwen what you need and she will either accommodate you or work to minimize what you want to avo...

We look forward to your return visit! We apologize that the luvered blinds were not room darkening enough for you to be able to sleep in before your travels. Request Guest Room H1 when you return. There is a curtain on the balcony to help block the sunlight! Thank you for staying with us!

In our initial contact with the Green Iguana, Gwen asked repeated if there was anything else that she could do to help us. We had read about a bicycling opportunity on Water Island; Gwen immediately sent St. Thomas taxi rates, ferry schedules and information about the biking tour. Upon our arrival she brought out additional information that she had gleened from Water Island Adventures. The very comfortable H-2 room had a private phone line; the local call to make the biking reservation was free. The room also had a great balcony to watch the sunrise and listen to the roosters in the morning. The bed was comfortable and the room clean. Gwen and John were down to earth, friendly, full of good advice and stories; we seemed to have lots in common as our visits to the office were never short, unless we just wanted to grab a bottle of water or beer from the office refrigerator. Wish we could find places just like this everywhere.

Unfortunately we only enjoyed one night at the Green Iguana which was on our way back home from a sailing trip in the British Virgin Islands. The room was quaint and very clean. Loved the balcony off our room which was delightful as we were able to watch a green iguana perched in a fig tree bask in the sunlight. John and Gwen were very kind in offering suggestions and reviews for dinner places and other hot spots. The hotel is situated in an ideal location which was close to town and only 10 minutes to the airport. Great place and great folks here, give it a try the next time you visit St. Thomas!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony.

Igor (the iguana), John and I enjoyed your stay as well! We don't mind one nighters such as yourself! Since we are close to the ferry that takes you to St. John, Tortola and the other Caribbean Islands, we are happy you chose us! We hope to see you again for your next Caribbean Adventure!

Gwen and John were the perfect Hosts. Nothing was ever a problem. I was in USVI on business, working in the day, and enjoyed the homely atmosphere come evening time. The office was a hive of activity, and I thoughly enjoyed the chatting with both guests and Hosts John and Gwen.
This is the best place I have stayed in. Thank you Gwen and john for having me at your hotel.
Cheers,
Keith

Hi Gwen & John! We loved our one night stay and would stay again! We felt very welcomed and at home. We were able to easily walk downtown and walk next door to take the tour of Blackbeard's Castle! We loved being able to come down and just chit chat a bit, ask questions about restaurants etc. Greenhouse and Glady's were just awesome!! My favorite part was when we bought a nice $10 bottle of wine from you, all chilled and drank it on our deck overlooking the most amazing view of Charlotte Amalie at night!!! It was just beautiful and something we'll never forget. Thanks again and we hope to see you again! Bruce and Elaine
