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.

  • 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

Quiet, clean, safe & friendly--not fancy, still a great vacation

I have to admit when we checked in we were a little worried. We had chosen CI for the kitchenette & real beds for each of the 3 of us. Once we settled in everything was just fine. We went to Mexico to explore, walk, read, relax and get a tan in a safe environment--CI delivered. -Think small older boutique hotel, maybe 30 rooms & appear to be renovating them 1 by 1. -The same caring, friendly people worked every day & took care of us like family. -Our room, though not renovated, was spotlessly clean & had great air conditioning, shower pressure & very comfy beds. A little dark, but we weren't in Mexico to sit inside. -The location is quite far away from DT PV so was blessedly quiet except for the birds--it IS in a jungle!20 minutes and 75 cents by bus to town, 1 minute to the bus stop. -The bar/cafe opens early and closes early evening as well. If you need beer/cocktails late stock up at the the hotel's convenience store or town supermarkets--that's why you have a kitchen! -The pool is small, but plenty of room and lounge options for sun lovers. -Note: no room safe, small deposit boxes are available in the office -If you require an elevator or room service or plan to spend your vacation online or on the phone, this is NOT your hotel. Our stay was very relaxing and I would do it again for the price. Say hi to the hotel mascot cats for us!

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

-Go to one of the big grocery stores downtown to get your breakfast and lunch supplies. The best feature of this hotel is the kitchen (fridge, cooktop, dining and cooking utensils). Bus into town for under 75 cents and splurge on dinner.

relaxing, quiet and close to pv

It is a quick walk to the beach which is small but very cute and has some nice restaurants and a cool fort to walk up to. There is a bus stop right outside the hotel on the street corner and it takes you right into town in under 20 minutes. It was much less busy than staying in puerto vallarta, it is definitely for a more muted and relaxing trip (not great if you want to party a lot its a 150 peso cab ride from the center of town about) but the center of town is still easily accessible by bus. The staff was very nice and friendly and the rooms were clean and large. The stove didn't work very well but the refrigerator was handy. There is a little store which has everything but produce and cheese. All and all it was a great and relaxing place.

Cheeky monkey! It is cheesy and full of tourists but it's fun to see the sunburnt tourists and if you go at sunset they play an opera song as it sets. Also 1 dollar beers and margaritas!

Enjoyed the stay

A very clean and comfortable hotel.We went to PV daily siteseeing,eating, exploring,etc. Took the bus each time. Also enjoyed the town of Mismalaya, surrounding areas and dining very much. Loved the location - small, serene and "Oh so" quiet. Sat out every evening. The attached store was a nice asset. If ever have the opportunity - will choose Casa Iguana again
