We were greeted as the taxi let us off by John the co-owner. He took us in and showed us around. It is very unique and interesting property perched high up on a hill with perfect views of the St Thomas Harbour. Our room was clean and had a fabulous balcony. The air conditioning was great!!! It was not a...

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...

We've stayed at this lovely boutique twice now and were very impressed with the hands on owners Gwen and John. The first time we arrived way late but were let in and given a first class welcome. This time we arrived very early and were allowed to check in and rest up a bit. Our room is clean, well maintained...

We love making new friends! And we really enjoy it when those new friends become repeat friends!

Thank you for making the trip to St. Thomas for our Centennial Celebration! We wish you could have stayed longer. We love sitting in the Gardens watching the Island Life too. We hope the rest of your stay around the USVI was as enjoyable as your stay with us. We will see you again "next time!"

Whether you are a casual tourist, doing business in St. Thomas or just passing through on your way to going (or coming back from) sailing in Tortola, BVI, you should consider staying at the Green Iguana Hotel in St. Thomas, USVI.

It was only your second stay with us? We are sure it won't be the last! Return Guests are our biggest compliment!

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.
