If you want to stay in St Thomas for a night or a week and don't want to spend exorbitant resort prices, The Green Iguana is the perfect hotel. It is small, with a dozen rooms or less but John and Gwen, the managers, live on site and take a warm, personal interest in your stay, not only your room...

I live on St. Croix, and booked this hotel for my mom and aunt who came down to spend Christmas with family on St. Thomas (I personally did not stay at the hotel, but stayed with family).

I come here every time I have business in St Thomas USVI to attend to and so does everyone on my team. Gwen and John are incredible humans, managers and all around nice people.

We stayed here for 5 days at the end of November. We won this trip on a travel auction and couldn't have been happier! Gwen and John were very welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful, the bed was very comfortable and the view of the harbor was amazing. This picture was taken on our balcony where we spent lots of time drinking...

Just stayed with hosts Gwen and John who made our visit to the Islands truly memorable. This hotel has a great bay view and is set among lush vegetation. Plenty of iguanas, humming birds and beautiful flowers. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the linens smell fresh and soft. This couple knows St Thomas so very well and are generous...

Wife and I were looking for something non chain for stay in St Thomas. Found this highly rated on TripAdvisor. Wonderful! First, this is older facility. Each room is unique with fantastic views of harbor. Rooms are well maintained-- hosts are experts on area-- free wifi. Cool location just up from Main Street. They helped get taxis and transportation. Thanks!

My husband and I were on a cruise when he had a sudden painful attack of unknown nature.

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...
