The Green Iguana must be best place to stay in downtown Charlotte Amalie (well, I have stayed here only...) Hosts are very relaxed, carering and friendly. Very personal atmosphere. It is a 7-10 minutes walk up from center of town, but you are rewarded with great views over town, mountains and sea - and you can watch the seaplane land...

We spent a week at the Green Iguana Hotel and had a wonderful time! This hotel is centrally located at the top of Blackbeard’s Hill, just a short walk from the Charlotte Amalie Harbor where you will find many shops and great restaurants. Our room was spacious and very clean and came with all the amenities, but with the personal...

John likes to say "You're only a stranger at The Green Iguana Hotel once!" And that's when we first meet at the front door! We are happy to share our knowledge of St. Thomas with Guests, and with all the new stores, restaurants, and activities each season, we learn from our Guests as well! Our housekeeping staff is the best...

The Green Iguana, We stayed here overnight on a trip to St Thomas. The hotel is in a quiet location next door to Blackbeard’s Castle.

This was a great place to stay for me and my girlfriend. The room was great and the staff was very friendly. It was my 1st time there and I loved it. It has a great view on to the bay. It was the best hotel I ever stayed at.

Thank you for your short and sweet review! The view is amazing to say the least! We enjoy morning rainbows (on rainy mornings), AMAZING Sunsets, and there's nothing like a cold beverage on the balcony to watch the harbor traffic, including the sea planes coming in and taking off! We look forward to seeing you again!

I needed to fly to St Thomas for a family emergency and made very last minute arrangements at the Green Iguana based on a recommendation from a friend. I arrived late, but Gwen, the hotel manager said she would be available at whatever time I needed. She showed me to a room that was perfect. A small kitchenette, nice bedroom...

We stayed at the green iguana hotel for one night before heading to St John. The room and bathroom were reasonably clean, comfortable and had all basic amenities.

Thank you for finding us, even if it were just one night. We do realize the airlines can and do change your flight plans, for weather related and maintenance issues. Our cancellation policy affords you a full refund up to 14 nights before your scheduled check in, and flight delays are just something we work around. St. Thomas has some...

A six night stay is perfect for your first visit, enough time to get to know the Town and the Island! There is so much to see and do! We are happy you enjoyed your room and balcony.
