I think when I first arrived I was taken aback on how lovely the location & view this hotel has. Even checking their website prior to booking, I was pleasantly surprised. Minutes from the port, I liked that it was at the end of the road. I was further pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the Ocean, the waves &...

We did not do a cruise, but did a land based tour which we set up ourselves based on Trip Advisor reviews. We stayed 5 nights at Iguana Crossing on Isabella Island and set up a package with them that included tours. We did 4 tours (in 3 days). We had a private guide twice and both were great people....

This hotel was perfectly located where the Iguanas cross to the ocean and flamingos feed in a quiet pond steps away. The rooms are large and the baths modern. The beach across the road is miles and miles of unspoiled sand with very few people. The food at lunch was spectacular. Dinner and breakfast were fine but nothing special. Nice...

Iguana Crossing is a first class hotel across from a stunning and empty beach on Isabella Island. Manager Don Pedro is the perfect host, anticipating everyone's needs and arranging transportation. The hotel is small and personal. The pool area is lovely and the food is outstanding. Try the coconut fish and the Sudado. Thank you Iguana Crossing staff for making...

This hotel is exquisite. Very modern and beautiful. Right across from a beautiful beach. At the end of the road from town.

The location is perfect, right in front of the beach/ocean and slightly separated from the center, but at walking distance. The hotel is nice and the room was quite big (n. 4), with a view on both the ocean and the flamingo lagoon. Service wise (breakfast, bathroom,ecc.), expect a 3 stars. The biggest inconvenience is the breakfast being served from...

“Balcony/terrace on first floor if staying several nights. Ocean view worth the upgrade”
 of 5 bubbles Forestalle, 15 Feb 2017 | Read review
“We had a volcano view room which was fine as the bar/lobby has sofas and chaise lounges with a beautiful view of the ocean which was not crowded. It is a small hotel with enough space for all guests. An ocean view room would have been nicer, but we would not have met as many amazing people if we stayed in our room and looked at the water. ”
