Stayed 2 nights. Clean and low key. Did notice while we were there a lot of locals were also enjoying the hotel. If the locals are visiting it must be good. Also had a little store which was nice.

We had a difficult time finding a hotel in Puerto Vallarta, so we extended our reach and found Casa Iguana in Mismaloya. Friendly staff, great price and clean rooms. The front desk associate upgraded us to a suite with slightly better accommodations- gracias! Breakfast was ok but the buffet was overshadowed by the families and children "diving in" before me....

Pleasant staff, though limited in translation skills (I ended up interpreting for several with room reservations problems). Simple, but clean rooms, especially the newer ones on the upper floors. No elevators. Excellent hard mattress in our room. Looks like a fun pool for kids. Limited poolside menu (cash only), but good guacamole. There ARE iguanas up in the trees. Nice,... More

I have no complaints. Of course it wasn't a 5 star resort, but for the price, what do you expect? Our family of six stayed just recently, and had a very comfortable stay. All the staff were very friendly, and the food was great in the restaurant. We loved the pool after a day out exploring, and the beach is... More

We stayed at the hotel for the fourth time in February. This was the first time eating at the resturaunt and we were very pleased. The omelette was excellent and came with beans and chilie killi Very good, fresh squeezed orange juice was great too. Got some nachos by the pool one day, pretty good but should have added some...

These guys really need some help or something. The service is poor. The food is really not good. In fact I asked the waiter if I could feed the dogs outside with it and he helped me. Most would be offended. The drinks were very good so I give it two stars. This restaurant is on the hotel property but... More

After checking in we decided to give this a chance. The dinner was excellent and inexpensive. They warned us that what we ordered was very spicy, but that's the way we like it. Not very fast, but we're in Mexico...no worries!

When you are in Puerto Vallarta or staying in Mismaloya (a quieter, more intimate neighborhood of wonderful), eat here. Get off the coastal highway and come inland a few miles to this unforgettable, multi-layered restaurant that is built above a wild, bounding river. There are walking trails along the boulders and down to the river. There are some lizards lazing... More
