This hotel was beautiful and just from the view and outside building condition it is obvious it is definitely the best in the area. I appreciate its efforts in being eco friendly so the push showers did not bother me. Wifi would be nice in the rooms also, but I didn't mind too much, you are on Galápagos after all...

We had a really good time at Iguana Crossing.The hotel is amazing.The only reason why I'm not giving 5 Points is that the rooms do not have cable tv. Even if you do not travel to Galapagos to watch tv. It is nice to be able to watch the news or sporting events in your room. For a hotel of...

Iguana crossing is aptly named! There really is a path by the hotel where the marine iguanas cross from the ocean to the the wet land behind the hotel. We loved the miles and miles of pristine beach in front of the hotel. The wet land reserve behind the property is home to flamingos, ducks, marine iguanas and multiple bird...

We spent three nights at iguana crossing in July and consider it an absolute highlight of our month-long trip. The location, facility, and service are outstanding. It is positioned perfectly to take advantage of Isabella, both necessary amenities of the small town, and the glorious beach and environment that draws you there

This gorgeous, beach-side hotel was not what I expected, as it's as chic and sophisticated that it could be in Miami or Mexico. Between the stunning views of the beach and wetlands--offering glimpses of marine iguana, flamingos and more--we didn't want to leave this beautiful sanctuary!
