If you are considering going to St. Thomas and looking for a place to stay: STOP! You have found the PERFECT place in paradise! John and Gwen are simply wonderful people who accommodated and helped my group with every request and tips. We were so fortunate to have stayed with them. The hotel is in a central area that will allow you to walk downtown or to a bus stop if you do not want to use taxis. Do yourself a favor and immediately book this hotel, their availability goes fast (I would know, since they were sold out while I was visiting). John and Gwen, thank you so much for being amazing and granting Katia and I great hospitality and care.

Property's Favourite Review
I very much enjoyed my stay at the Green Iguana..Gwenn and John made me feel welcomed as if I was their good old friend visiting. They both know St. Thomas and surrounding islands very well and gave great advice on how to get around, what to explore and where to eat.. The Green Iguana is located a beautiful walk up the 99 (or rather 102) steps from the city center and the amazing views will make up for the climb. The rooms may not have the most updated decor, but they are very clean. Everything worked well: There was plenty of hot/cold water in the shower and the A/C provided the perfect temperature. Free coffee and tea available in the room. I was very happy to hear that the hotel runs mostly on solar energy.. I would stay there again.

Thank you so much for your awesome review! (The actual count of the steps is 103!!!) Many of our Guests enjoy using the step streets all around Blackbeard's Hill as their morning or evening exercise! The abundance of clean hot water and the split unit a/c's are upgrades since the 2017 Hurricanes, and we've added Tesla battery walls to our solar panel array for electrical production. We look forward to welcoming you back, and soon!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our three nights in room H2 during March 2021, which features a spacious balcony (much larger than regular hotel balconies) with a stunning view across downtown Charlotte Amalie and the harbour (the hotel is uphill, close to the 99 steps and next to Blackbeard's Castle). A couple of well-padded armchairs and a large glass table made the balcony a great retreat of an evening, enjoying a few beverages that we kept cold in the efficient in-room fridge. Once back inside, the A/C was rigorous and quietly kept the room at a comfortable temperature. Strong WiFi was good enough to stream a show on a tablet if desired. It's less than 5 minutes to drive downhill into town (plenty of parking next to the hotel for when you return), but anyone moderately fit can walk down/up the "99 steps" to the restaurants of downtown. If you want restaurants further afield without driving, the Frenchtown and Havensight areas are both about 30m walking from the hotel, in opposite directions, which made a reasonable stroll in our opinion. Note: as the hotel makes clear, they are uphill from downtown, so keep that in mind post-dinner. Gwen and John are friendly owners, and on the couple of occasions I wanted to check with them about something they were easily located around the property. They also offer free snorkel gear to borrow (which they run through the dishwasher between guests), in-room beach towels that are replaced daily, and a "left over" station of sunscreen/bug spray/similar items that previous guests chose to share, as well as books/games to borrow. True to the name we also saw a green iguana wandering around nearby (they're harmless)! Yes, there's no pool, ice machine or cafe, but the hotel doesn't claim to be a luxury resort. It's a clean, comfortable, boutique hotel with plenty of island charm, and for the price point we thought it was excellent.

I had an amazing lodging experience at The Green Iguana Hotel in St. Thomas. The property managers Gwen and John were very friendly, provided helpful tourism information, and rendered superior hospitality. One morning I had a dress malfunction and Gwen, in the midst of her handling busy work tasks stopped to assist me. This property truly feels like a home. I stayed in room A2 and loved my room! Room A2 was well equipped with a comfortable queen-size bed, full kitchen, working desk, and a balcony. Every morning I sat on the balcony prayed, ate my cooked breakfast, and enjoyed the breathtaking view. The location is safe, peaceful, and a short walking distance to the restaurants and shops in Charlotte Amalie. I enjoyed climbing the historic 99 Steps and visiting the Three Queens Fountain which both locations are within walking distance from the hotel. Overall, if you’re looking for an affordable, simple, and cozy hotel in St. Thomas I highly recommend The Green Iguana Hotel. I enjoyed my stay so much I extending my lodging for an extra 3 nights. Thank you Gwen and John for being so accommodating!

We stayed for a night in February. Hotel is kind of hard to find. Rooms are very clean. We were able to get a room with a kitchen. Gwen and John are super nice and knowledgeable about St. Thomas. Gwen gave us a really good suggestion for dinner but I must confess that I didn't want to walk up those famed steps after dinner. We also had a good conversation about north eastern Ohio. We already booked another night before our St. John vacation,.
