Gwen and John made this a great experience. They were very helpful and knowledgeable. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. View was spectacular. Walk into town was short but involves 199 steps! Will stay here again!

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.

Responded 7 Apr 2020
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!

We were at Green Iguana 6 nites. Very comfortable room with balcony view over town. We loved having our meals with that view. Gwen & John were very helpful w arranging taxis, advising us on walking routes, & more. Great garden w beautiful birds. New swimming pool looks like it will be ready soon. Great location to walk to sights & shopping-(but be prepared to walk up many steps to return). We had a room w a small kitchenette-which turned out to be very useful. Restaurants are very expensive in USVI. We went to a grocery store (also expensive) & brought foods for almost all our meals to prepare in our "home" hotel room. We did go to restaurants a few times. There are beach chairs to borrow. (& other beach supplies we didn't use). Definitely hope to return!

My wife and I just got back from our fourth trip to The Green Iguana. What a great place to spend a week and relax in the beautiful St. Thomas weather. Quiet rooms with a Caribbean vibe. John and Gwen are exceptional hosts and are extremely knowledgeable about the island. See you next year!

The Green Iguana has character and so do the lovely host and hostess, John and Gwen. Well being of their guests is very important to them. Basic, comfortable, clean accommodation. Loved to hear the crowing roosters in the morning. Loved the resident tortoise, gardens spaces to sit in. Would certainly stay there again next visit.
