10/10 Exceptional

5 stars!
This was an amazing hotel! Perfect location: across the street from the beach (amazing views), right at the start of the bike trail to the Wall of Tears. Nextdoor is a boatdwalk that takes you past iguanans and flamingos, right to the tortoise breeding center. The staff were wonderful. Pur driver, Family, was so kind and welcoming! The airport trabsfer is incredibly useful ... he even helped with our bags at the airport and getting us checked in. Food was great. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We cant wait ro stay here again!

6/10 Good

This hotel really is beautiful and the staff is very nice. I gave it two stars because it fell short in a couple of ways. I understand that they have the bathroom fixtures to conserve water but there are other ways to encourage and even reuse water from showers, etc. The shower was akin to those at the beach, you push a button and get water for about 5 seconds and then it goes off. Same with the sink. I felt like I wasted more water trying to shower and wash my face using these fixtures. One other oddity was the floors were very sticky. We would shower before bed and the walk from the shower to the bed - somehow we ended up with super sticky feet in bed - very weird and gross. Probably just the cleaner they use. The restaurant is convenient but not that great and very overpriced. They provided no information on the local town, a map, things to do, local restaurants, shops, etc. I'm sure if we asked, we could get some info, but they weren't sharing openly.

8/10 Very good

The property is located right at the edge an endless, beautiful beach and the views are stunning. However, since it is the last property at the end of the strip, it gets very windy and it can be fairly loud at night, as the windows rattle. There is a hot tub on the top floor terrace, which is a greay amenity, but the water does not get very warm unfortunately. The food at the hotel restaurant is great, as are the cocktails.

10/10 Exceptional

Iguana Crossing is an absolute gem on Isabela. We visited for four nights during our Galapagos honeymoon and this property was by far our favorite stay! Right across from the beach with an abundance of iguanas, we slept with our balcony doors cracked and listened to the waves crash. The staff was accommodating and helped us to call taxis as needed. The breakfast was a delicious spread each morning. Our only complaint was that the water in the shower only runs for 8 seconds at a mild lukewarm temperature in an attempt to be more eco friendly. It was not a deal breaker, but we are used to longer/warmer showers.

6/10 Good

The first night we had no hot water. After a day of diving, that's the worst! The TV did not work and view wasn't great. They did upgrade us the 2nd night which was a little better. Still no hot water. As for eco friendliness, they kept turning the temperature down to 17degrees when they cleaned our room. Why make it so insanely cold???? Lots of energy wasted.

6/10 Good

The best part of the hotel is the location and views. There’s only WiFi down in the lobby. You have to push a button to get water for both the shower and sink. First night, there wasn’t even any hot water.

Beautiful hotel and location. The staff was excellent and helpful. Food was good. Restaurant area with great atmosphere and views. The lounge beds by pool were super comfy. The wifi was slow, but we were not there for the wifi. Easy access for lovely walks on the beach. We very much enjoyed our time at Iguana Crossings and would return.
