My wife and I recently spent seven nights at this marvelous resort. We are stunned by the harsh reviews in the past few days. What do these people expect, Club Med? I'd suggest that these folks stick with Hilton Head-type places from now on.
If you want peace, beauty and authenticity, this is a perfect choice. We've traveled a lot and rarely chose to return to the same spot. Casa Iguana will be an exception.
While there we explored the island, saw all other accommodations, talked to fellow travelers and concluded that we picked the best place. The staff -- Doug, Jacq, Meg, Emma and the local folks -- were very warm, friendly and helpful. The food was as good or better than anywhere on the island. Doug was happy to give us recommendations for the best rundown (Rosa's) and the best lobster (Miss. Bridgette's).
We stayed in the Gran Casita # 2 for $105 a night (high season price) and want that casita next time we go back. Besides the lovely, well cared for grounds and beach and the best view on the island, most of the casitas and cabanas are not practically touching each other, as is the case of the other places on the west side of the island.
