A gem in Mismaloya

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 22, 2009

We stayed at Casa Iguana for 3 nights and we could not have picked a better place to stay in Mismaloya. I did a lot of research before going to PV and Mismaloya looked like a great little town to spend few days in. You have the beach, the jungle and the chance to mix with the locals. What else could one ask for?

There are not really too many lodging options in Mismaloya. You can either stay at Barcelo (too big of a resort for my liking) or at Casa Iguana Hotel (nice, intimate and quiet). Since Casa Iguana Hotel was exactly what I was looking for, I decided to book 3 nights here. Booking was very easy and fast. I sent an email to the hotel, got an answer almost right away and in about 30 minutes I had a reservation number and a room booked!

Casa Iguana Hotel is a very well run place. Everybody here is so nice and friendly and they do all they can to make your stay a memorable one. Each room is a 2 bedroom apartment that can easily accommodate 4 adults. The master bedroom has a queen size bed with lots of closet space. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds with a big closet. The bathroom is small but adequate. There is also more storage space in the hallway, just between the 2 bedrooms. The living room/dinning room area has a sectional (a child can easily sleep here!), a TV set, a small coffee table and a bigger size table with 4 chairs. There is also a small kitchen, fully equipped, with a small fridge and a stove (no oven). You will also find an iron and an ironing board in one of the closets.

The hotel has a very nice and well maintained pool, a small pond with koi fish and turtles, a bar, a restaurant, a gym (in case you want to work out) and a tiny store from where you can buy groceries, fruit, drinks and cleaning supplies. There is plenty of parking in front of the hotel where you can park your car (a feature hard to find if you stay in a hotel in PV).

The beach is just across the street, very easily accessible. It is a small beach, very quiet (we loved this after spending few days on the busy and noisy beach in PV), with plenty of restaurants that serve very fresh food and tropical drinks.

The place has the tendency to grow on you and we found ourselves loving it more and more every day. We were really sorry to leave, but we wanted to see other places too and we had to say "Good Bye!" to Casa Iguana.

Next time we go to PV we will definitely stay here again. It is a gem of a place that really deserves to be discovered!

Unique Quality: very clean and well maintained, very friendly staff, close to the beach and the jungle! it is not a 5 star hotel, but if you are looking for good value, clean and quiet this place fits the bill...

Directions: coming from PV: drive on 200 until you see the Barcelo Hotel on your right and a bus station. Turn left and then right (take the road that is close to the river). Drive 2 minutes and the hotel is on your right side. Park the car, check in and enjoy!
