We stayed here for three nights as part of a land based tour. This is a very comfortable, casual hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are very comfortable. The beach is beautiful and lovely for early morning walks with a cup of coffee (fresh and strong and usually ready by 6:45).

We just got back from the Galapagos islands and stayed at the Isabela Lodge for three nights. It was absolutely perfect. The staff was friendly and courteous, the rooms big and clean and the beach glorious! I would stay there again.

We stayed here 2 nights as part of a land-based tour. This hotel is just as great as the Red Mangrove on Santa Cruz, just different! The rooms are a decent size and extremely clean. The beds are okay, but really, nothing is as good as your own bed at home! The a/c works well, it does make some noise... More

We spent 2 nights at this hotel and were very satisfied. It's located close to the harbour and has a beautiful view of the beach. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Buffet syles meals were very tasty. You're a short walk from town, which I strongly recommend walking through. Snorkeling is available very close by, and you can see sea... More

As I read the reviews left recently about this hotel, I wonder if we stayed at the same location. Yes, the hotel was on the beach. But the staff left a lot to be desired in terms of service. Our group arrived in darkness after a terrifying boat trip in a boat not equipped for night time ocean travel. We... More

We spent part of our honeymoon at Red Mangrove Isabela and absolutely loved it. Very friendly staff, gorgeous location, comfortable rooms. There is nothing not to love about this hotel...we even took advantage of their laundry service, we had clean clothes within 2 hours! A staff member was waiting for us at the dock upon arrival and took care of... More

It was the closesest thing to nature without leaving a hotel. Sea lions will accompany you during your breakfast. It was a beautiful and romantic place to be with my wife. Very close to the action and they loan you bicicles for you go around.

We stayed here as part of our excursion with the Travel Zoo special for Red Mangrove. The guest rooms are spacious and bathrooms are nice. All rooms are steps to the beach. There is a nice deck for relaxing and watching the sunset. Meals were fine with lots of selection to choose from and one drink was included the first... More

stayed here as part of the Travel Zoo special with the Red Mangrove and enjoyed it very much. We had a room right on the beach and loved it. The little town was small with only a few shops and places to wander in but so quiet and nice. The food was very good and the staff was helpful and... More

This is a relatively small hotel with a superb location right on the beach. After the busy-ness (relatively) of our days on Santa Cruz, this hotel was such a gift. The staff is incredibly attentive and helpful. The food was great; I really wanted to be able to tell the cook how exceptional it was! Some meals are buffet, some... More
