We spent 2 nights at the Green Iguana in February 2013. What first struck us was the stunning view. The rooms all seem to have a great view of Charlotte Amalie from the top of Blackbeard's Hill. Gwen arranged a cab for us and they were very helpful in terms of knowing the surrounding area well. There were really only...

We stayed here in February for a single night before a sailing vacation. The combination of a cheap room and a single night reservation was exactly what we needed. It is located at the top of the 99 steps right next to blackbeard's castle.

We don't mind one night stays and were happy to accommodate you before your adventure! We have many Guests who stay 1 or 2 nights before sailing and then again for a night or 2 after sailing. Sort of the "vacation after the vacation"!!! We hope to reserve a room for you next trip as well! Enjoy!

Green Iguana was a great choice for our 2 night stay in St. Thomas. It is convenient to the airport and the island ferries.

We were very happy to call our favorite taxi service to bring you to the hotel! Even if your flight day is short, it's still stressful to make airport connections only to be seated on a crowded airplane, and then to be the last passenger dropped after being seated in a crowded transport van..... we are happy to arrange for...

Green Iguana is located within close walking distance to town. Clean and affordable. Management is great!!!! We arrived late (10:30 p.m.) Gwen arranged for a taxi cab driver to pick us up. She also suggested car rental agencies to use for visiting St. John. Great place. Grounds are very much "jungle" Wonderful, Iguana's, banana tree's etc.
