My husband and I stayed here at the start of our travelling and we loved this place. The breakfast was great as well as the overall atmosphere. We stayed for three nights and wish we could have stayed for longer. Our room was stunning with a big veranda so we could watch sunset each night. The beach bar was fantastic... More

If you are looking a place to enjoy the peace of the island, this hostel is the one for you. The staff is super friendly, and the breakfast is amazing! It changes from every day of the week. The hostel is literally on the beach, so prepare yourself for having the views of your life! The only negative was that... More

I stayed at Caleta Iguana in the end of April with my boyfriend for two nights. The B&B has a wonderful location, the most delicious breakfasts, the most kind, friendly and professional hosts (who go out of their way to make sure that you have a beautiful stay). The place is peaceful, has a relaxed location, but is still just... More

Wow is all I have to say about Caleta Iguana. We booked our stay there about 3 months out and the staff was extremely helpful in providing us details on the best tours to take while on the island. I was initially hesitant about taking their advice but we were so glad we did. They have relationships with the best... More

My friend and I stayed here in June and really enjoyed ourselves. It's at a beautiful location in Isabella - the beach is amazing. Breakfast was very good and included - a different type of dish everyday. They set us up with tours of Las Tintoreras and Los Tuneles which we both really liked. There are two very fun beach...

My friend and I had a great time staying at Caleta Iguana. We did not want to leave! The location is great, right on the beach and a nice bar with hammocks and a slack line. The staff was extremely helpful with arranging tours and they helped accomadate breakfast being served early the day of our hike. The free breakfast... More

The staff were very friendly. Carlos was very helpful. The location was great as it is beach front. BUT be ready for the music. It can go on playing up to 2 AM on Friday and Saturdays. We were very tired form our Inca trail hike in Machu Picchu so we fell asleep despite the music. I think the bar... More

Doesn't match the description. Only cheap room is steaming and right next to a loud bar, with vagrants sleeping on hammocks during the day. Impossible in any of the rooms without air-conditioning. No access to the kitchen as promised, and the kitchen is large and tempting. No coffee and tea available. Staff constantly with their faces in (inside) their computers,... More

In the first place we booked the 80 dollar private room, with a fan, but after loosing one night of sleep there we asked for another room, so we ended up changing every night to another room, by paying extra. The 80 dollar room is on the back of the house, so there is no breeze from the sea getting... More

Hostel is the last house on the beach and the view is amazing! The staff was really nice too and explained everything well in English including tours and everything you can book through them. Water and an excellent breakfast is included. Make sure you get air conditioning tho (not all rooms have it). And it may be loud at night... More
