We made the Iguana Crossing our home for 6 nights as part of our honeymoon. We were hoping to book the best place on the island, and we succeeded. Because the hotel is situated on the beach, you can enjoy the ocean breeze and the sound of the ocean from your bed. We enjoyed swimming in the pool every evening... More

We just came back from a Galapagos vacation. Our first stop was Isabela Island and we stayed in this amazing hotel. I was a little hesitant as I didn't know the place and some of the reviews were not positive. I have to say our experience was outstanding. The hotel is beautiful, the location is magnificent, the personnel was so... More

I can't say enough good things about this hotel. We happened to be on Isabela during a freak tsunami red alert (Chile had had a giant earthquake that the USGS thought might bring a tsunami our way; this is a very rare occurrence, and shouldn't deter anyone from going to the Galapagos!). I was, as one might imagine, extremely alarmed,... More

My wife and I ventured to this amazing property last month, March 2014. From the get go, Felipe and Alejandra (whom I believe are the owners) were wonderful at accommodating our requests between our dinners, our non-obstructed ocean front/view room, et al. A very easy, one-to-one engagement, which is rare. The property/location was ideal to us in a sleepy little... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights at this wonderful hotel a few weeks ago. Having read the reviews on Trip Advisor, we were expecting a fantastic hotel and we weren't disappointed! We splurged and booked an oceanview junior suite (room 8) which was amazing. Our balconey wrapped around the hotel and we had an oceanview and a sideview of... More

We couldn't have picked a better hotel to spend our vacation in the Galapagos. The place not only blends in perfectly with the pristine feel of the island, but the staff was so friendly and hospitable! They always found a way to accommodate our needs. The food was also out of this world. During our entire stay in the island... More

This hotel is the nicest on the island, but needs some updating. We booked an ocean view room and it has a beautiful room but the pillows on the bed had holes in them and the comforters on both beds had stains. The bathroom was up to date but the ceiling could use a coat of paint. The service and... More
