    This is a very nice restaurant with high end entrees, mostly meat, with little seafood or vegetarian options, but the food was perfectly cooked, and presentations were very good. By Puerto Rico standards, it is a bit overpriced, but the atmosphere and service are also high end, so overall, I recommend Iguanas if you want a fine dining experience and like red meat and chicken.

    The staff was attentive, but there was a lot of time between courses. Presentation seemed to be the most important thing, and it was on point. The food was good, but certainly not worth the $129 per person for turkey dinner, and the steak option was mediocre at best. Grandma's food might not be picture perfect, but it was much more tasty. My favorite dish of the night was the salad.

    Menù looked great, but we were disappointed with the food and experience. The music was too loud, the food was disappointing, and our waiter got our order wrong and did not attend to our table. There are better places at Wyndham like Palio.

    The Thanksgiving 4 course meal was well thought out, executed and served. My only issue was the special musician was a bit loud and I didn’t find his choice of music dinner friendly (ie- knocking on heavens door).

    Terrible service. My wife and I had to wait over 90 minutes for our food. The waiter took our drink orders in the beginning and never came back to check on us. After checking with the waitress after an hour of no updates, we were informed that the kitchen was backed up. The restaurant did not appear to be crowded. When the food finally came out, it was cold. The lobster tasted like rubber. The chicken was dry. It was a truly disappointing experience.

    We’re staying at the Wyndham resort, and Iguanas is an on property restaurant. It’s on the second floor of the golf course clubhouse, but it’s a very nice, modern space. The decor is very nice. The service was excellent - attentive and friendly, but not overbearing. We asked to buy a dessert for an abuela we met on the way in who was celebrating her birthday alone, and the restaurant comped her meal, which was very nice. The wine list was fairly standard, not the most interesting, but fine. We decided to share several appetizers so we could sample more. The dishes were beautifully presented. All were slightly elevated or modernized versions of traditional Puerto Rican dishes. If you are looking for fully authentic versions, this is not the place, but the food was good. The biggest negative is that you pay a premium because you are on the resort property, so it’s quite expensive for what you get, but that’s to be expected. Overall, a nice meal if you’re staying at the resort.

    We stayed at the Wyndham resort, where the restaurant is located. My husband and I got the pork wrapped in prosciutto, lamb steak, and garlic chicken. For the price and service there wasn’t much WOW factor. My husband also got sick the next day, this was the last thing he ate.

    The food was well presented but the taste wasn’t good. It was unbearably salty and the mofongo with steak didn’t look like advertised. The presentation of the dessert was disappointing, creative but not what we were expecting. Our waiter was very attentive. It was not the high top experience we were expecting.
