My husband and I had an amazing stay at the Green Iguana Hotel. Our daughter was moving to St. Thomas from California, and John and Gwen were incredibly helpful. Our room was spotless, and had amazing views of the water, with a private balcony to soak it all in. The property is also very safe, and walking distance to shops and restaurants. We will definitely be back here!

It is a cute little hotel within walking distance to downtown Charlotte Amalie, but the walk back involves climbing “99 steps” and I counted a total of 150! It’s still not bad if you’re in reasonable shape. Even if you have to taxi it is still closer than most hotels. Gwen and John treat you like you are family who has come to visit. They are great for suggesting things to do and help with logistics. The hotel is exceptionally clean and safe.

We remember you! You are the lady who claims to have short legs! We are happy you had a great time with us, and were able to endure one of our SHORTEST Step Streets to Town! It's much safer to walk the step streets than the car streets! J&G

The Green Iguana was a perfect place to stay for us in St. Thomas! John and Gwen were great hosts, wonderful, very accommodating, nice and very service focused. For us the location was within walking distance of the seaport with our light luggage, great restaurants, shopping and taxis were readily available in the area. Would definitely stay again next time we visit St. Thomas!

The Blyden Ferry Terminal is really only about a mile away, west along the waterfront. There are many restaurants in Town for breakfast for lunch, including the one AT the ferry terminal! Light luggage suggested! - or we can order a taxi for you! See you again soon! J&G

This quaint spot is both exotic and convenient! It’s right off the Waterfront, so you are literally in the heart of St. Thomas! Enjoy the local cuisine and shopping within walking distance! I would suggest staying here as opposed to the resorts. Excursions are not too far away, you can walk everywhere and not to mention, they are super friendly! The pool and the deck are beautiful! I enjoyed every single moment and I cannot wait to return!!! Thank you for a splendid stay!

You are very welcome! Remember should you need taxi service, they will meet you by the hotel entrance with very little notice at times! We like to give them 15-20 minutes for pick ups. And should you decide to rent a vehicle, we have plenty of off street parking reserved just for your guests! See you again soon! J&G

We spent one night at this hotel, preceding a week on St. John. We found it to be a perfect location for walking to dinner after our arrival from the states and then to breakfast before catching the ferry to St. John. Gwen, one of the managers, was fantastic to work with, arranging for a taxi to pick us up at the airport and giving us directions to the restaurant. Our room had a great view of the bay and provided all the amenities we needed. We had a great sleep. We were surprised that the bathroom in our room (H2) had only a shower curtain where a door would normally be, but for one night we were able to laugh this off. Friends we traveled with said that their bathroom doors were louvered, so privacy wasn't much better. They also laughed this off. We would definitely stay here again.

I'm sorry, I thought we discussed the supply chain issues with a broken bathroom door! Louvered doors are considered the style of the Caribbean (instead of solid doors). We are happy the rest of your stay was enjoyable and we look forward to hosting you again.

We just returned from spending almost a week at the Green Iguana. It was a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The room was nice, the location is excellent, and the hosts are as helpful and pleasant as they come. Highly recommended.

John and Gwen are terrific hosts of the Green Iguana. The cab was pre-arranged from the airport straight to the front door. The room was comfortable and clean with an outstanding view. We had a wonderful stay. Thank you, John and Gwen.

From the moment we saw the front door we started to relax! We've stayed at The Green Iguana many times before and it's always been the best. Our room was clean and comfortable, and there was a full kitchen so we could fix ourselves breakfast and lunch when we wanted. And for the mornings that we didn't feel like enjoying a meal on our balcony, it's just a sort walk down the hill to town. Our hosts John and Gwen are friendly and always ready to suggest a restaurant or beach...and they can organize your taxi so you can get to the airport or catch a ferry. Finally...the pool! Awesome addition, and whether from the deck or from the pool itself, we enjoyed watching the sunset and the lights coming on in the town below. we will be back!

We loved this place. It had so much charm, and even saw an iguana in the parking lot. Located up the hill a bit, it was quiet and had beautiful views, but close enough to walk to shopping and dining. We had to force ourselves to leave. We wanted to spend the whole time relaxing on the balcony. Small, very clean, and great personal service. We'll be back.
