We normally are very budget travellers so this would have been far out of our price range, but I got a phenomenal deal on Sky Auction so we stayed here for 5 days on our honeymoon..When we got there we were given a rear room overlooking the flamingo pond, which was lovely , but I asked the manager if it...

Having sailed around the Galápagos Islands for 10 days in 2010, we were looking to stay on one island for a few days prior to going to a conference in Quito. Iguana Crossing was recommended by friends who had lived in Ecuador. We were completely pleased with our experience. Pedro greeted us upon arrival, explained the arrangements for our daily...

Very nice rooms in a perfect locations. The ocean rooms have great beach views and volcano rooms overlook a pond with tons of wildlife, including flamingos. Breakfast is amazing and staff was very helpful with everything.

We lucked out and got a corner room that had both an ocean view and a lagoon view. The ocean is beautiful there with white sand and sea-going iguanas. The lagoon is rich with lots of birds including wild pink flamingos. The hotel staff was attentive, gladly handing out towels for snorkeling trips and beach activities. The restaurant was excellent,...

Puerto Villamel is an extremely unattractive town so Iguana Crossing looks very nice in comparison to the surroundings. The property is attractive, but the room was nice enough. The bathroom door is all glass so there is no privacy. The shower is the real problem.It is a huge cavernous space with 2 shower heads. The water takes literally 20 minutes...

Three nights at Iguana Crossing, hands down the best hotel on Isabella Island in the Galapagos. There is a street that separates the hotel from beach, but you wouldn't know it. The property sits at the end of the road at the entrance to a long boardwalk where you will see iguanas (there is literally an iguana crossing area right...

Beautiful small hotel, at the beach where you can see a lot of sealife. Also really quiet. The rooms with seaview are really nice. Staff is really helpfull and the breakfast is excellent. Isla isabela is the best! Don't miss this when you go to the galapagos!

Amazing location, great people and hospitality, very accommodating and genuine care. The room that we first got had issue with AC and they immediately handled the situation and gave us a different bigger room at the same price. You can walk along the beach and see lot of iguanas, blue foot booby too and walkable distance to flamingoes/tortoise breeding center...

I had a room with an ocean view but no balcony. The staff was very accommodating and the room was always clean and comfortable. The location is conducive to walking the beach, walking into town, taking a bike to the wall of tears or walking to the tortoise sanctuary. The kitchen at the hotel provided very good Ecuadorian food served...

The hotel is a very beautiful place a the end of the "main road" of this island. However, it is still very quiet and not a busy street. The beach is just meters away from the entrance and stretches over hundreds of meters. The Hotel staff was friendly and the service was good. Room were clean and facilities were great....
