Puerto Vallarta hotel equipped with kitchenettes, spa and outdoor bar
Casa Iguana maintains the intimacy and charm of Mismaloya, the beach town it calls home. The all-suite property attracts extended-stay travelers with two-bedroom rooms, equipped with kitchenettes, overlooking manicured grounds and a lovely pool. La Enreradara, a quiet place for eats and drinks, charms with patio tables and a thatched-roof bar, while a full-service spa addresses tired muscles and complexions in need of help. Area attractions such as the Vallarta Zoo and a former set for the movie "Predator" are within walking distance.
Highlights
  • Two-bedroom suites equipped with kitchenettes
  • Walking distance to the Vallarta Zoo, Mismayola Beach and El Eden River, the "Predator" movie set
  • Full-service spa
  • Alfresco dining and cocktails at La Enreradara
Location
Casa Iguana guests can stroll off-site to find some of Puerto Vallarta's best attractions. Located in the Mismayola, the property is within walking distance to the beach, Vallarta Zoo and El Eden River, which was the set for the "Predator."
Rooms
Casa Iguana creates rustic charm via two-bedroom suites overlooking lush gardens and a sparkling pool. Air-conditioned rooms utilize warm woods, earth toned-walls and iron scroll lamps to create a comfortable vibe. A few other amenities cater to the needs of extended-stay travelers, including a fully equipped kitchenette, a living room and satellite TVs. At the end of a busy day, guests rest atop queen beds or two twin beds.
Features
Casa Iguana aims for casual, intimate dining at La Enreradara, an outdoor a la carte and buffet restaurant that doubles as a bar. A grassy roof and open-air tables signal that vacation time has truly arrived, especially when the plate and margarita glass are full.

This is the place

We are a 50ish couple that prefer to spend our time and money on exploring rather than sitting around a pool fighting for a lounge chair at an all-inclusive resort. The Casa Iguana was perfect for our needs. The rooms were clean, staff friendly and efficient, and the 2-bedroom suites offered a kitchen where we could cook a few simple meals. The pool was clean, hot tub hot, and the bar and restaurant staff extremely competent and friendly. The hotel is a few steps away from the beach or the bus line that runs north and south to PV or to catch the water taxis. This is a great value of a property, with American management and Mexican atmosphere.

Great hideaway

Casa Iguana is a great find. It is located in the village of Mismaloya, about 12km from Puerto Vallarta. Not on the beach, but within walking distance (a couple hundred yards). It is a very tranquil garden setting - quite relaxing. Each room is a suite - we had two bedrooms, living/sitting area, and a kitchen. The suite was very clean, with ceiling fans in each room and A/C when needed (not much). There is a small market located at the front entrance where you can get supplies for your suite - beverages, food, other essentials. The restaurant is called Boca Bento, and is located right off the pool area. It features Latin-inspired cuisine with a Mexican flair - not tacos and nachos, but prices are very reasonable. The entire staff provided wonderful service during our entire stay. If you don't have a car, access to Puerto Vallarta is very easy via bus or taxi - the bus is 6 pesos, and a cab is closer to 150 pesos (depends). There is only one road along the coast (Mexico 200), which is pretty busy, so walking along it is a bit dicey. All in all, for those seeking an alternative to the mega high-rise resorts that have taken over Puerto Vallarta, Casa Iguana is a wonderful option.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Another dining option is called Maria Bonita, located just across the road in the La Jolla de Mismaloya condos. Situated on a beautiful terrace overlooking the bay, it's a great place for breakfast. You can look right down into the water and watch the clownfish over coffee. Awesome way to start your day.

Good Stay!

Casa Iguana is a great out of the way spot for relaxing and getting away from the crowds. You can get to Puerto Vallarta very quickly on the bus, enjoy and be very happy to be home away from the crowds when you return.
