My husband and I took this trip in January and this was a trip to remember forever. My husband planned this trip for my Birthday. Our host Luis was amazing and the accommodations could not be better. We missed meeting the owner Patricia but we were able to communicate with our translator device. This quaint property is above and beyond...

Dear CT, Thank you so very much for the nice review. Every one is so valuable to us as a small property, because we do not solicit reviews and we do not participate as you know in anonymous ".com" bookings. I, as the English speaker in the house am back in San Cristobal. I always visit my family including grandchildren...

We have just enjoyed a wonderful one week stay here from 14 - 21 February 2016. We stayed in the Flamingo Suite. During our stay Luis looked after us so beautifully. Nothing was too much trouble. He cooked us a wonderful breakfast every morning with as many cups of his own delicious organic coffee as we wanted. We asked if...

Hi Brits, Though I am older than you, " I WANT TO BE LIKE YOU WHEN I GROW UP !" It was a wonderful pleasure to have world travelers of your good humour in our humble property. Thank you for the extra kind words of praise. We did not "lose" your reservation in a dot.com booking error because we do...

We spent 2 great nights at Casa Iguana, looking out from the rooftop lounge during the evenings, and walking to the nearby cafes and beaches. Luis cooked us breakfast; washed our clothes; helped us arrange a day tour; and even after we had checked out, he came biking down to the docks with a charger that we had forgotten in...

Dear Camille, Thank you very much for the nice review. We do not "ask" for reviews, and therefore every one is precious and completely voluntary. As is usually the case, Luis reported to me that you were fun guests to have at our property. I (the English speaker) will be there on the island next week, for several months. I...

We stayed here for just two nights - but we loved every moment. Luis was so accommodating, not to mention cooked us a delicious breakfast each day served with coffee made from beans roasted on site. There is no greater smell than freshly roasted coffee beans! We had a view of the ocean from our room and loved all the...

Great location to walk to town and to the beach. Owners are very friendly and rooms were very nice, and compared to other options available on San Cristobal, I would recommend staying here and would do so again. The rooftop for sunset was fantastic.

My son set the itinerary and made all the reservations for this vacation to the Galapagos. All he would tell us was try not to be too disappointed in the accommodations, as they would not be of the normal caliber we were used to while traveling. Expecting the worst, we were very pleasantly surprised when our guide Gina delivered us...

Dear M. (and family), Thank you for the lovely words. I guess I have a lesson to learn; just because a nice guest appears in the "sala"/ living room area....does NOT mean I am invited to use their precious internet time to chat in English. But actually it was kind of YOUR FAULT. You have a big personality, a HUGE...
