    The food here is absolutely amazing. I’d been craving Mofongo and they did not disappoint. My mom had the arroz con pollo and it too was delicious. Even my daughter, who is three, greatly enjoyed her hotdog and sweet potato fries. The staff was accommodating and helpful when it came to my daughter, especially when she fell asleep at the table. We’re going to go again before our vacation is over. Highly recommend!

    Let’s start with this restaurant mostly caters to people on vacation. That being said, the atmosphere was super bland and boring. Definitely did not have a upbeat vibe it was more like a library in there. The food was tasteless. I ordered the chefs special which was a NY Strip and I got a tan colored zero taste piece of meat. I will not be going back. Only positive was the waiter was very attentive and understood our complaints.

    The menu online did not match what was being offered. Not many nice options. We stuck to the appetizers only. Taste was very bland. We had much better Porto Rican food outside the resort for fraction of the price.

    When we checked in, we asked to be seated in this booth we saw available by the window. We had stated on the reservation we were celebrating a birthday. She said no because that particular table was reserved. She said we have a table available for you on the rain forest side . Ok, sounds like it would be beautiful! NO! We were in a corner, right by an exit door, looking at a parking lot and only our table and another table were on this side. We didn’t even feel like we were at the same restaurant that we walked into! So disappointed! Couldn’t wait to eat and leave. Also, they never even acknowledged the birthday we were celebrating! If we ever go back to the resort, we will not be going back here.

    THe view of the rain forest at sunset is magical! The open air dining room and relaxing music made you feel part of the outdoor landscape. The food that we ordered, 2 appetizers and 2 entrees for 2 people was outstanding with generous portions. Our.server,Jamie? , added to the experience. She was friendly, knowledgeable, didn’t rush us and allowed the right amount of time between courses. By the end of the meal we felt like she became a new friend! I highly recommend this restaurant!!

    Iguanas restaurant is an amazing place to have dinner in Puerto Rico. The location was beautiful as well as the view. Our server, Rainy, was outstanding - attentive but gave us space. We had the mofongo made with yucca which was outstanding. Highly recommend and can't wait to return.
