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.

Iguana Crossing is located in front of the beach and at the gate of Galapagos National Park´s entrance, so it could not be better placed. The hotel offered us great facilities for before and after excursions such as a well equipped games room with ping pong and pool tables, a lovely ground floor terrace with a swimming pool, resting beds...

Iguana Crossing was the best lodging experience in the Galapagos. Acommodations are first class and the owners go out of the ir way to take care of your every need! National park is just around the córner and the beach is right in front!

The hotel has a great location looking out over the bay with yes many Iguanas crossing Although lacking a few of the refinements of a 5 star boutique hotel we did have a brilliant time with 3 great meals in the bar / restaurant. The fish was exceptional, cooked really well with generous portions. Breakfast could have been better and... More

Located at the end go the road of town, you'll find this gem of a boutique hotel. The marine iguanas have a designated rope crosswalk viewed easily by the infinity pool. Pedro will answer all of your questions, book your excursions and make your stay effortless. Behind the property you will find a turtle breeding center, flamingo lagoon and a... More

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
