Clean and lovely. The location is wonderful and the pool area is very nice. The food is acceptable but certainly not gourmet and the wine list is very lacking. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Overall we were pleased with our staff but it was not what we were expecting.

We stayed at Iguana Crossing for 3 nights in a junior suite. The balcony overlooked the pool and across from that the beautiful beach. The overall look and feel of the hotel is modern and clean (it is very new). Rooms are reasonably basic but comfortable. The location is fantastic with the mangroves right beside the hotel hosting lots of... More

We had a lovely stay at this hotel. We upgraded to a "junior suite" on the 1st floor and it was very nice. I can imagine, though, that if there were a lot of people using the pool it could be loud/uncomfortable as the balcony is immediately adjacent to the pool area. The service was great; we had help with... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a 9 day Galapagos tour. We loved our ocean front room with a very pleasant balcony to sit and enjoy the view and the breeze. The hotel is literally right on the beach with only a narrow sand road separating it from the sea. The hotel is a short walk down... More

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.
