The hotel is just across the road from Mismaloya beach, literally a 5 minute walk. The pool and jacuzzi are lovely, as with many Mexican hotels, not only is the jacuzzi not kept hot, it takes quite a while to get it there. Advise the staff well in advance if it's not hot. The service was wonderful and friendly, there... More

My husband I stayed at Casa Iguana Dec. 27 to Jan. 6, 2015. We decided to return after a wonderful stay in 2013. We love the location and the staff. Our housekeeper, Kathy, was wonderful, as was Chef Donato, who I understand is no longer there. When we arrived around 11 p.m., there was a quinceaneras party in progress behind... More

Great hotel! Awsome staff and very good breakfast and lunch at restaurant. Pool not heated but we didnt mind! Bus stop is 2min walk away. Great area if you dont want a busy touristy type of holiday. Clean suites no bugs. Would definitely go back.

Yes, the pool is clean and looked after, the grounds are looked after well, and the staff is kind and friendly. Our suite was clean, except for some corners and the blinds were very dusty. One day we were without clean towels and it took a few days to get a bath mat. There are no t-towels for drying dishes... More

When we arrived my first impression of the room was "oh no what have we got ourselves into". After staying at the larger hotels in Nuevo Vallarta such as the Riu this was a bit of a shock. 10 days later we could not be happier. Yes the rooms are plain and some maintenance is needed but they were clean... More

Stayed here Dec 27 until Jan 5. Read many of the reviews before booking and thought this would be a nice small quiet clean affordable place to stay. I would NEVER recommend this hotel to anyone!!

myself and my girlfriemd found this place on Expedia. Don't let those pretty pictures fool you. Upon getting our room, I immediately started looking for another place to stay. It stunk of mold or mildew. And quite frankly, I was nervous to even sit on the couch, let alone sleep in the bed. We were also informed if we used... More

Found this little gem quite by mistake. If you wantt a real flavour of Mexico be sure to check it out. We originally booked a two bedroom, one bath. We upgraded to the three bedroom two bath. Great well kept pool and grounds. Kitchen is very adequate for cooking all your meals or just breakfast and lunch as we did.... More

Casa Iguana is a 3-star hotel, 20 km from the edge of town, on the wrong side of the (well-travelled) highway from the beach. There are scores of hotels just like this between here & PV.
