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. In the afternoon they 'cross' back again! Amazing! The hotel is environmentally conscious. Beautiful rooms overlooking a huge unspoiled beach. It...

We just returned from a 5 day/4 night stay at the Iguana Crossing. The hotel is right on the beach, which was beautiful. We were most impressed by the staff, who were very friendly and accommodating--even with our infant daughter and nanny. We enjoyed a few day trips which the hotel helped us organize, and a day just lounging around...

We stayed at Iguana Crossing in April for 3 nights. What an amazing place, magical, and pristine, and what an experience! The views of the ocean are spectacular,especially from the bar. The pool is small, but what's not to like about the infinite pool where you over look the ocean, so nearby. We stayed in the room facing the ocean,...

The rooms are very poor. We were 3 people and only two old towels were left in the room. A/c was not working and was not fixed but the worse was the feeling about sleeping on wet sheets. what a horrible night,,, Breakfast was ok. Also was a mistake with the price, I was charged twice.

The staff were all so kind and genuine. They went over that top for our anniversary and unexpectedly brought a romantic desert and wine to the rooftop for my wife and I. We really enjoyed the peacefulness of the location and loved the Master Suite's spaciousness that allowed us to have in-room dining

We stayed at Iguana Crossing for five days in May, and it was heaven. So peaceful and in sync with nature and the surroundings.
