Laura, the receptionist, told us at arrival that she does own the place. She only works there. That doesn't change the fact that she IS Villa Iguana. She is the one person that makes all the difference. We think we met the owners too, during Laura's day off, but we cannot be sure. But we'll never forget we met Laura....

Me and my girlfriend stayed at Hotel Villa Iguana in January 2017. We made a spontaneous decision to visit the Dominican Republic and we did not regret it! We found Hotel Villa Iguana on tripadvisor and decided to book the place, it did not disappoint us. I loved staying at Hotel Villa Iguana, Laura in the lobby and the owners...

We found Bayahibe a very cool town, alive with Dominican culture and near the water. We stayed in the resorts at Punta Cana for a few nights and then came here. A very friendly and informative staff, we really enjoyed it and have no complaints. Besides the water activities I would recommend a trip to Padre Nuestro.

Small hotel with nice people. I stayed for one night to have a tour for Isla Saona. The room was very clean, the breakfast was rich with a lot of fruits. Lola was so helpful with everything. I already recommended this hotel to my friends that will go to Bayahibe.

Such a gem of a hotel tucked away in busy Bayahibe. Rooms and hotel themselves were always spotlessly clean. Delightfull Dominican ladies who always greeted us with a warm smile and a tinkling "Hola". Fabulous roof top bar with panoramic views of Bayahibe.
