Gwen and John, feel more like your best local friend than the great property managers they are. They not only helped us with some challenging hotel reservations, they helped us make other arrangements on St Thomas, as well as St John. Their knowledge of the local area and their personal connections around the area AND their eagerness to share that...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 28 February 2017

Needed to spend an extra night in St. Thomas before our return trip home. Found this place after reading several reviews. Just about as I expected based on the reviews. Small hotel with only nine rooms, very clean, airy, spectacular views of the downtown and the harbor. Nice big bed very comfortable. The friendliest hosts you could ever imagine; went...

My boyfriend and I absolutely loved out stay at The Green Iguana. Before we arrived, our plans changed and the managers were extremely flexible and happy to accommodate us. They made transport from the airport easy and inexpensive by arranging a trusted taxi driver. The hotel grounds were beautiful and had a wonderful location. Our room was perfectly clean and...

Thank you so much for the great comments! When you are traveling to a destination, especially for the first time, ground transportation can be confusing. We have negotiated with a local taxi service to give our Guests the best ground transport experience possible! The gardens are always a work in progress! Everything grows all year! But we love gardening! We...

Four couples stayed one night last weekend at this hotel and found it to be barely average. However, the bathrooms are in desperate need of renovations. I can handle "dated "rooms as long as they are clean, but we saw evidence that this was NOT the case! (See photos). Management was helpful with reservations and check-in, and arranging transportation to...

I am having a hard time seeing the photos you posted. I believe one of the four couples was in Guest Room H2. We discovered a plumbing problem in the bathroom, and as full as our occupancy was during your stay, we had no other room to place you. John tried to remember to tell all Guests checking into H2...

Just spent a week at the Green Iguana for our wedding/honeymoon. My wife and I stayed in room A4, which featured a full kitchen (including dishwasher). The room was clean, quiet, and offered a private balcony with a good view of Charlotte Amalie and the harbor. We also enjoyed the hotel courtyard, which includes native flora and fauna (including resident...
