The hotel is lovely in a wonderful location. However if you use the room safe make sure you know exactly how much money you put in the safe. Both my husband and I had $60 taken from our wallets. As we knew there were no ATMs on the Island we counted our money before arriving so we knew exactly how...

When we pulled up to Iguana Crossing we were so excited about our stay. The hotel is perfectly located across from a gorgeous beach on this gorgeous island - and there is an inviting pool out you pass on your way in. We were traveling with friends and had booked a junior suite and the master suite - which we...

Dear guest, Please receive our apologies for your negative experience with the tour payment. Unfortunately not all businesses offer credit card payments at the Island and there are no ATM’s available. However is important for us to let you know that there are some reasons other businesses do not accept credit cards and is mainly due to taxes and high...

We stayed two nights at Iguana Crossing and absolutely loved every second of it - the ocean views, the infinity pool, the service, the entire island... we're just counting the days until we can be back! A definite must-stay and one of the highlights of our beautiful visit to the Galapagos!

Our room was absolutely fabulous, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. We saw sea lions, iguanas, pelicans and many other creatures right from our room. The food was delicious, the staff extremely helpful, friendly and prompt. Couldn't have imagined a better experience. Thank you!!

How can you go wrong with a view of the beach and a view of pink flamingos feeding in a lake? The staff were very gracious and the proximity to restaurants and shops was perfect. I highly recommend a visit and the Tunulas Tour.

The most amazing sunrises and sunsets. Very friendly staff. Beautiful pool and steps from the ocean. Iguanas all over the place outside the hotel. The wifi was not great but who cares when you are in paradise.

Reviewed 24 February 2016

Though the location was nice, the hotel was NOT a 5-Star!!! THE SHOWERS ARE NOT 'USER FRIENDLY'! The water would shut off every 7 seconds (due to the faucet's design to save water), therefore, the water never has a chance to get warm. SO, IF YOU WANT WARM WATER, YOU HAVE TO PRESS THE KNOB FOR AT LEAST 5 MINUTES!...

The hotel is in a great location, has attentive staff, and the food is great, but please note that it is overpriced. It is near the tortoise breeding center and the wall of tears. The rooms are clean but small for the price. Overall everything is pricey on the islands.

This was a very nice small, quiet hotel. It's in the best location on the island, but not close to the marina. The staff was very friendly, polite, informative and helpful. Could not have ask for more. As in other reviews, I agree that breakfast was not so great, but I don't think there is much better on the Island....

This hotel was clean and in a great location. I believe most of the hotels on the island are on this same sandy road and the Iguana Crossing is at the end of the road. The included breakfast was good. We did not like our room because it is right off the hotel lobby and if you want to have...
