You really need to consider the Iguana Crossing for your trip to the Galapagos Islands. The sales office provided excellent assistance to make sure that the connection from the landing in the Islands to the arrival at San Isabella was all arranged in advance. The sales office also provided detailed information on what to expect at each stage of the...

From the moment we arrived at the airport until the time checked out we treated with kindness, caring and professionalism. At the time we arrived at the hotel we were greeted with a cold drink and a tour of the grounds. The manager confirmed our special itinerary that was built for our family due to the 3 night short duration...

The staff was very attentive,went above and beyond, food was excellent,private setting with easy walk to beach, I highly recommend this hotel for families.The pool was great with a view of the ocean, it is a short walk to the restaurants on the island but far enough away from the bars so you aren't bothered with the noise at night.

The best hotel in all of Isabella Island. My girlfriend and I looked at many different options for accommodations on Isabella, but nothing compared to this hotel. The quality of the grounds and staff was amazing. The friendly and professional standards of this hotel reflect a high quality of management.

The hotel is lovely in a wonderful location. However if you use the room safe make sure you know exactly how much money you put in the safe. Both my husband and I had $60 taken from our wallets. As we knew there were no ATMs on the Island we counted our money before arriving so we knew exactly how...

We stayed two nights at Iguana Crossing and absolutely loved every second of it - the ocean views, the infinity pool, the service, the entire island... we're just counting the days until we can be back! A definite must-stay and one of the highlights of our beautiful visit to the Galapagos!

How can you go wrong with a view of the beach and a view of pink flamingos feeding in a lake? The staff were very gracious and the proximity to restaurants and shops was perfect. I highly recommend a visit and the Tunulas Tour.
