Stayed here for 5 days and loved every minute - the location is perfect, pool is stunning as is the beach. The manager was extremely helpful with advice on tours and the wait staff were courteous and friendly. Yes the shower is a bit irritating but it's all in the name of conservation so I didn't really mind. I loved...

The Iguana Crossing Hotel is wonderfully situated right next to the beach, and true to its name you can sit on the deck and watch the marine iguanas cross the street to the sea. Behind the hotel is a lovely lagoon with a boardwalk that takes you to the flamingoes and the tortoise breeding center. The rooms, reception area and...

We stayed at the Iguana Crossing in June 2015 for 2 nights. It is an amazing location - the iguana really do cross from the land/river in the back over the road to the lava rocks on the beach.
