We had a gorgeous view from the balcony and the bed was Extremely comfortable...a real treat following a week on the boat! Gwen and John were incredibly friendly and helpful. We will most definitely return to...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 20 January 2017

If you want to stay in St Thomas for a night or a week and don't want to spend exorbitant resort prices, The Green Iguana is the perfect hotel. It is small, with a dozen rooms or less but John and Gwen, the managers, live on site and take a warm, personal interest in your stay, not only your room...

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...

Well my husband and I just came home from our second stay at the Green Iguana and I can honestly say that I would not want to stay anywhere else on the island than here! Hosts John and Gwen are like family from the very first time you meet them. The hotel is clean and homey and so close to...

It was only your second stay with us? We are sure it won't be the last! Return Guests are our biggest compliment! And it does make you feel like it's your "home away from home" when you are in familiar surroundings! We felt the same way when we started our Caribbean Adventure nearly 16 years ago!

Spacious and comfortable room. Very reasonable price. On a hill overlooking Charlotte Amalie. Recommend taxi for going back up if you aren't in the best shape. Only about $8. The owners, John and Gwen, couldn't do enough for my brother and me. They even posted a birthday greeting on our door.

We have many Guests who "bookend" their stay with us, just as you did!
