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

So don't waste any more time looking for a place in San Cristobal. You won't find anything better than this. Just book it now! The 3rd floor deck has the best morning coffee view we have ever had, and the coffee is grown, dried, roasted, ground, brewed and poured by Louis. Yum.

We stayed at Casa Iguana for 2 nights in February before leaving for a 7 day cruise. The B&B was lovingly built entirely by Luis and it shows in every detail-from the Iguana carved into the front door to the beautiful rooftop deck. The view to the harbor is priceless and it is a five minute walk to the center... More

This is a home from home sort of place. Luis and his sister were full of smiles and helpfulness. We had a huge room on the top floor complete with sitting area and kitchenette. Breakfast is in their kitchen where you sit at the breakfast bar and chat with other guests. Fresh fruit, great coffee and eggs cooked by Luis.... More
