My only regret in this review is that there is NO rating beyond EXELLENT. My wife, Marilyn & I were treated to an unforgettable vacation experience at The Green Iguana Hotel in St. Thomas USVI. The resident managers, John & Gwen Pittman, are certainly to be commended for their hospilality and attention to every detail to make their guest feel at home and able to enjoy all the nuances of "Island Living". We were directed and accompanied to some of the "Native" events and restaurants as well as the wonderful "Touristy" points of interest.
While there; St. Thomas experienced some of the worst weather and heaviest rains they had seen in years, The upside of that was we were able to relax, nap, get some reading in, and enjoy some unbelievable lightning shows and views of the bay and harbor from our balcony, for a couple of days, that very few guests have the opportunity to see.
A couple of days before we had to leave the Pittmans arranged for us to take a day cruise with one of their friends at "Oh Be Joyful Sailing" under the direction of Capt. Dave Parker with 1st Mate Jocelyn, and 2nd Mate Sophia (an absolutely delightful sea dog). We were treated to a great tour of the waterways around St.Thomas and the surrounding islands, we anchored in the shelter of a gorgeous island and snorkeled in asure blue water while Capt. Dave and Jocelyn prepared a gourmet meal of grilled salmon and 2 in thick pork chops, local "island"salad
and decident dessert.
All in all I cannot think of anything that could have made our visit to The Green Iguana Hotel any more enjoyable......it will be fondly remembered until our next visit to "The Islands".
