We spend 6 nights in Deluxe Casita at Casa Iguana. The Casita wasn´t definitely deluxe, the bed was relatively comfortable, but the floor hasn´t been cleaned for ages. We loved the spectacular view from our terrace, privacy and very well maintained roads (trails) and garden. The place is really the best one on the island, it´s not too far from village and it has beautiful surroundings and views!
It seems that once it had to be great accomodation, but now it looks like nobody manages it and that Casa Iguana just lives its own life. When I booked my accomodation, I was in contact with Mary. She promised that someone will be waiting for us on the pier. Our ferry arrived with a delay and after dark, but nobody waited for us. So we had to find a way to accommodation on our own. Luckily we had a map and a headlamp.
The whole property belonging to the Casa Iguana is huge and beautiful, including several private beaches and probably the former pineapple plantation.
I am afraid if the owner doesn´t quickly begin to take care of his property, he will discourage soon many visitors.
Restaurant and bar more or less work, dinner is served in family style and is really tasty. Try the Casa Iguana´s cocktail Basilito! It´s made from fresh basil and Flor de Cana ron!
Perfect is the possibility of supplementing drinking water from private wells!
