We stayed for a few days.. The Hotel is perfectly located just in front of an endless beach where you can experience "a touch with pure nature".... Close to all the main tourist points and parks to visit... The service, cleanliness, and condition of the Hotel were well far beyond our expectations... Elegant rooms, gourmet cuisine, luxurious amenities, and the... More

There are little things about staying on an isolated island - limited foodstuffs, limited internet, etc. However, the proprietor of the iguana crossing really tries his best and the staff go out of their way to be as helpful as possible. There can be confusion because booking is through middlemen, but he resolved any issues promptly. I was surprised at... More

The staff is very helpful and kind. The hotel offered to organize the taxi from the airport in Baltra to the pier in Santa Cruz, which was very comfortable, but costed us almost doble the regular price. We had an upgrade and appreciated the view from the sea in the first floor, but bear in mind the privacy is limited... More

We stayed here during a Backroads trip. The manager was surly unhelpful. We were promised a balcony room but didn't get it. The pool was dirty and had a film of suntan oil (or something gross) on the surface. The rooms were fairly clean. The staff acted like they were extremely put out if asked for anything extraordinary like a... More

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
