Our stay at Iguana Crossing was, sadly, very disappointing. After making reservations months in advance, upon arrival our pre-paid reservation length was questioned even after producing email confirmation. When shown to our room on the ground floor- steps from the bar- we noticed the ceiling was dripping onto one of the beds. We immediately brought this to the attention of... More

We stayed 3 nights. Very limited choices on Isabella, so this was the best hotel available. Hotel was newer but has much wear and tear. Water conservation showers and sinks are less than ideal. Cozy restaurant served breakfast each day with good staff. Good location on beach and near trails.

What a find! Rooms were nicely furnished and comfortable. Nice end-of-road location. Staff super friendly and property very clean. Internet spotty, but then again, you are in the Galapagos Islands. Food was good at breakfast and dinner. Great, relaxed atmosphere. Would definitely go back!

We´ve stayed 5 nights at the Iguana Crossing Hotel during our vacation on the Galapagos Island from 2nd till 7th November 2013. During this stay we´ve discovered a lot of things at the hotel which we weren´t happy with at all since we´ve expected more for the price we've payed and from what we were expecting from the Hotel website...

The location is excellent right at the junction to the tortoise breeding center and iguana cross the road to dip in the sea during the day. The food was pricey but excellent and the lounge definitely the best part of the hotel. One of the attraction of this place and the reason why a room costs more than $300 is... More

We had a couple of nights here as part of the air, sea and fire tour organised by Galapagos Safari Camp. It was a brilliant location next to the national park. Right next door was a board walk where you have to step over iguanas to get started and the beach was over the road. The whole place has a... More

We have traveled extensively and we can honestly say the experience on Isabela, and particularly our experience with the manager and staff at Iguana Crossing was superb. It all stared with Pia Serano - she booked our stay, our domestic travel, and our excursions. Everything was perfect. Pedro along with staff Jackie, Emma, Darwin, and Danielle - just the best.

An extraordinary hotel ran by the owners who give special attention to details making your experience in Galápagos outstanding. The establishment is luxurios and well equiped with entertainment, excelent food and in a great location with ocean, lake and mangrove swamp views. The staff was very pleasant and efficient, making our time spent at the hotel a real treat.
