“Wonderful Vacation!!”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Our stay at The Green Iguana was wonderful!! My husband and I were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary and my husband's birthday. We had never been to St. Thomas before. John and Gwen were awesome hosts and made our stay spectacular!! The room was clean and the view from our balcony was awesome. We enjoyed sitting on our balcony every morning and relaxing. We stayed there for 7 nights and got to stay one more night because our flight was delayed! John and Gwen were more than gracious to come back to the airport and get us!! We are already talking about going back!! We would recommend this Hotel to everyone!!!

Room Tip: H2 was the best!!

Double Celebrations are Double the FUN! When you arrived you told me you 'just wanted to relax' and I think you two did just that! Mixed in with some great adventures I might add! We are happy you remembered your Ohio State Fan-wear! The photos came out great!
We are happy to hear you are already planning your next adventure! We will be here waiting to be at your service once again!

Our stay at The Green Iguana came at the end of a week spent between St. Thomas and St. John. My friends and I were looking to enjoy our last day/night in town in St. Thomas to get some shopping done and relax before heading home. We decided on The Green Iguana since it got great reviews and was close to everything.

My first interactions with Gwen and John were thru email. They were quick to respond and very accomodating. The number of travel companions changed a few times and we were lucky to be able to get a room when that happened.

The Inn sits on top of a hill overlooking downtown. The room (H4) was spacious, bright and clean. Gwen and John let us check in a little early and check out late since there was nobody staying in the room before or after us (sept - low season since it's peak hurricane season). They were very personable and friendly and gave us coupons for a local restaurant. It felt more like I was visiting family than staying at an Inn. It's an easy downhill walk (99 steps) to town, not so easy to come back though!

I would definitely recommend staying here if you want to be close to everything and have more personalized service than a larger hotel.

Gwen and John - hope to visit again next year!

Room Tip: Our room didn't have a blacony, I'd like to stay in one next time to be able to sit outside...

John and I are happy you found us! We agree the view from all our rooms is spectacular! Especially at night when the lights come on! As long as we have rooms available we will work with you until you are completely comfortable. We allow our Guests to "choose their room" on a first come first served basis! One of the larger Guest Rooms is A4 with a balcony, perhaps we can reserve that room for your next visit! Thank you for staying with us!

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful hotel for 2 nights while on St. Thomas during our 10-day honeymoon. We couldn't have picked a better place on St. Thomas to stay!! The rooms were spotless, very comfortable, and the view was amazing from our deck. When we got there, John and Gwen immediately made us feel at home by welcoming us, congratulating us on our marriage, and we even had a complimentary bottle of champagne waiting in our refrigerator in the room!

I can't say enough good things about John and Gwen. They were the most hospitable hotel managers we have ever met. We sat and chatted with them in their home on the property for some time, and they gave us pointers on where to go check out on the island, some good restaurant recommendations, and on our last day even helped us check into our flight online and printed our boarding passes for us! Saved us a TON of time and hassle.

If you're going to stay on St. Thomas, stay at the Green Iguana!!! We will be back!!

Room Tip: We were in H2 -- it was gorgeous!

We like to think of Guest Room H2 as the best we have to offer! It was the first room John and I stayed in on our first visit to St. Thomas in 2001! We are happy you enjoyed the room and the balcony as much as we did! (Although ALL rooms have the same great view, just from different angles!) We wish you a lifetime of happiness and good times! Perhaps your next visit will be to celebrate an anniversary!

We had a great stay on our stop over in St. Thomas. John welcomed us at our late night arrival and made sure our large family had everything we needed. The location provided easy walking access to downtown, which was perfect for us, but not close to the beach.

We love family celebrations and were happy to have had room for yours! The walk to town is a beautiful stroll through the Historic District of Charlotte Amalie and there are many great restaurants within that walk, not to mention the duty-free shops and numerous activities! Since there are so many beaches to choose from, many of our guests enjoy sampling as many as possible during their stay with us! We are happy you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to serve you again in the near future!

It all started with an idea: To celebrate my friend's B'Day in a different way. It ended up being the BEST Vacation I've ever had, from the minute we decided on the place (US Virgin Islands) and choose "The Green Iguana" as where to stay, to our last night in the Islands... As soon as we arrived, it was clear we made the best Hotel choice! The place is cozy, peaceful and quiet, well taken care of, clean and has reasonable pricings. We were greeted by John and Gwen, the Resident Managers, the instant we got there. Everything was setup by them and their Staff upon our arrival. From a Welcoming Gift Bag, Brochures on the Island and Discount Coupons, to the beautiful Room we were asigned (even with a "Happy Birthday" sign hanging at the wall for my Friend's Special Ocassion!). They served also as an amazing 'Travel Guide', answering all of our questions, giving us advice as to how to get everywhere, where to go, places to visit, where to eat... But, most importantly, they made us feel safe and AT HOME! Staying at "The Green Iguana" made our trip really easy and most enoyable, since its location is ideal and its view's amazingly beautiful. Just minutes away from the Historic Sites, Downtown Charlotte Amalie and Main Street Shopping. A really short and interesting walk from the Hotel, down the famous 99 Steps and you were exactly where everything happens in Saint Thomas. It all was what we were hoping for and more!!! I will definitely be back and recommend it to all my Friends and Family!

Room Tip: If you're a couple, try Room A-6. The view is amazing from that cozy 2nd Floor mini-studio.If yo...

I found this hotel at the St. Thomas airport hotel info kiosk. I was mainly looking for a clean, quiet and air conditioned place at a reasonable price. The Green Iguana fit the bill. The place was not sexy or luxurious... but it was nice, quiet, well equipped, very comfortable, and well located (10 minutes' walk down hill to town center). And priced right too.

But what made my 3 nights' stay truly enjoyable was the husband-and-wife team working there: John and Gwenn. Very professional and also genuinely warm and friendly!

The one thing that prevented a perfect 5-star rating was the uphill climb when returning to the hotel at the end of each day. 108 steps up, I believe. But I may be quibbling a bit here -- the steps were not all that steep... still, something to consider for those who are not used to walking.

Would I stay at the Green Iguana again? Most definitely!

We are so thrilled you found us! Remember you can DRIVE up to the Hotel as well as walk! We have plenty of FREE Off Street Parking just outside our entry door! However the 99 Steps must be climbed, at least once! We really enjoyed your stay with us! We have learned so much about travel from you! What amazing experiences you had! We will differently look into ocean travel your way! We sincerely wish that our paths do cross again, in the very near future!
