This place was so highly recommended on this site that I thought it would be a definite winner. Yes, it is in a great location along the beach and we had an ocean and (distant) volcano view, but don't think it was worth the price. We paid in excess of $400USD per night and it did not offer anything to...

Great hotel. Marine iguanas really do cross in front of the hotel across a sandy lantern to the beach. Indeed you can see them swim from the lagoon which is filled with flamingoes ..all from the hotel. Rooms we're bright and airy with great helpful staff. The manager organised the very early taxi ride to the port for us. A...

We stayed at Iguana Crossing for 2 nights on a recent visit to the Galápagos Islands. We were on a meal plan that included most of our meals at the hotel as well. This hotel is a lovely boutique style hotel in an idyllic setting near the edge of Puerto Villamil. The rooms are modern and well appointed. Our room...

The hotel has a gorgeous design that feels true to the Galapagos' charm, while being leaps & bounds ahead of all other hotels on that island. The hotel is located on a quiet area of the town, putting you a short walk from all the restaurants and bars while providing you isolated beach views. The hotel staff is warm and...

very good place, ocean view front of the hotel, many options for trekking and simply walking, typical village near the hotel, safety environment, only ten minutes from the airport, best choice on Isabella

Has the best views (in my opinion), best accommodation and relatively quiet/secluded as it is at the end of Port Vilamil near to some great walks and not far from the main restaurant drag. Drinks prices are pricey commensurate with the quality of the hotel and location. Nice, friendly staff make the stay very enjoyable.

Spectacular ocean-side room with views of the entire beach and beautiful ocean view all the way to town. Iguana's really do line up in the afternoon to cross the road from the beach. Very cute to watch. Best place on Isabela. Pricy but well worth it.

Incredibly friendly staff that always greets you with a smile. The master suite is breathtaking with an unbelieveable waterfront view. We were sad to say goodbye to Pedro and his staff after a week watching sea lions, iguanas and flamingos from our home away from home.

We booked this trip last minute and are so glad we chose the Iguana Crossing. The location is great and the staff is even better. We couldn't have asked for a better stay. Highly recommend you stay here. Pedro and his crew will take great care of you.
