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...

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.

The food at the hotel is excellent, and with an immensely professional and helpful staff our stay at the island was wonderful. The hotel is one of the few that has a pool and is perfectly placed within the environment of the island's wildlife. Considering the varying high prices and conditions around the island, Iguana Crossings is reasonably priced and...
