We really enjoyed our one night at Cabinas Iguana. Most of the budget guest houses we stay at have concrete walls, so it was a real pleasure staying somewhere with fragrant dark wood paneling, built in shelves, and a mosquito net.
Our shared bathroom was reasonably clean, as was the shower. There is a BEAUTIFUL clean pool and an extensive book swap.
It is located about a 15 minute walk from the town center, so know ahead of time that you shouldn't walk after dark to town. There is a reggae bar/restaurant which is a little pricey very close by. (safe to walk to) (remember, pricey for us is $10 entrees--if you're "on vacation" and budgeting isn't an issue for you then it's not too bad.) The food is good though.
You can also rent a cabina with a kitchen and cook yourself.
Or you can just plan on getting a taxi back from town after dark.
Either way, the slight separation from town means a much quieter, peaceful, isolated experience. Fantastic for reading a book in a hammock, sitting by the pool, and enjoying Playa Negra, which is just moments away.
