We have just returned from a 2-week stay at the Casa Iguana hotel. We usually go all inclusive but this time we were doing a budget vacation and from what we read this hotel seemed to be a good fit. We were a little unsure of our decision when we first arrived as it was a very long ride from the airport. We then had to drag our luggage up to the third floor as there is no elevator. When we awoke the next morning we were pleasantly surprised by the fantastic view. The room is rustic decor and the kitchen is equipped with most of the necessities. We were able to get a hairdryer and iron from the front desk but not an alarm clock so I would suggest taking one along. It would be nice if the rooms were equipped with an alarm clock, microwave oven and toaster. There is only a 2-burner cook top which takes quite awhile to heat up. Having said that we did get used to it and managed to cook several meals during our stay. Our daughter loved the little dog hanging out at the hotel and wanted to take it home.
We are a family of four (2 teenagers). This is not the hotel to stay at if you like some nightlife as there are really no bars around and is quite a long way from downtown PV. We liked it though as it was peaceful to come back to after spending a hectic day out. We bused into town several times for shopping and meals as the bus fare is cheap.
We ate dinner at the attached restaurant the first night and breakfast quite a few mornings. The meals were good but a little pricey for a family of four to eat at very often. Staff and management was helpful and solved a couple of issues we encountered.
The beach is a 5-7 minute walk and make sure you take some money if you want a chair/lounger to relax on.
