This place is perfect. Like others have said, rooms are nice and comfortable, the place itself is beautiful and the breakfasts are super nice with fantastic coffee. It's also well placed near a couple beaches and 5 min away from the Malecon, which is all you need. But what really sets this place apart are the owners. We didn't have... More

Casa Iguana is the ideal place to stay while visiting the Galápagos Islands. If Patricia and Luis have room for you count yourself lucky! This small hotel/bed and breakfast is perfect for many reasons. First, it is architecturally beautiful and carefully decorated. Each room has a theme with wood carvings by Luis and other carefully chosen items resulting in a... More

Thank you, kind family from Arkansas. From our first contact until our last good bye, it felt like we were part of a large family reunion. It was a pleasure to host your group. I kind of wanted to go home with you and pretend I was part of your loving family. If all humankind was as fun and happy... More

What a great way to end our vacation -- this is a beautiful, inviting home. Love the New Mexico influences (it's my 2nd favorite state in the United States - we visit every year) and we appreciated the location - while the home is a quick (and I mean quick - less than five minutes) walk from the pier, it's...

I completely agree with all of the comments related by Astra B. The care and thoughtfulness of the hosts Patricia and Luis show in every aspect. From the care they took building the Casa, its immaculate condition, the ambiance of the rooms to other wonderful details of hand picked coffee beans, homemade banana bread, recipes, sunsets on the rooftop, books...

This is my first review and I don't quite know how to begin - mostly because words cannot do justice to how profoundly impressive Casa Iguana is (yes, I'm using my thesaurus for help). I just reread other people's reviews and every good thing they say is true. We were traveling without a tour - stayed in Quito a few... More

If you are planning a trip to San Cristobal, Galapagos, this is a great place to stay. The 5 rooms hotel is designed and built by owner Mr Luis. All the wood carving it's truly art. Also, owner is great chef and brings a few organic products from his farm (which is located up in the mountain) Highly recommended to... More

This is a lovely B&B! Our room was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. The breakfast was delicious with great coffee hand-picked and roasted by the owners. The location is very convenient to walk into town or to the beach and it overlooks the bay. We will definitely stay again!

How do I start—how about “this place is really cool.” It is perched on a hillside overlooking the San Cristobal bay; sunset is directly ahead as you stand outside your room. My wife and I had the Lobo Suite on top, which includes a sun deck and sitting area. As described elsewhere, the physical premises are beautiful and immaculately maintained.... More

Beautiful room, sparkling clean, gorgeous bathroom, unbelievable views, lovely sea breezes, perfect location for port and town, great overhead fan, never had to use a/c, tastefully and spaciously decorated, windows everywhere, fantastic beds. But best are the hosts: Patricia and Luis. They made us feel at home; we felt they were old friends from the time we arrived. We can't... More
