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

We visited the Red Mangrove Isabela Lodge as part of our 6 day Darwin's Triangle Tour with Red Mangrove. We had the two front rooms overlooking the deck and the beach. Service was excellent and the accommodations were great. The rooms are a little more sparse than those at the Aventura lodge, but we felt that was to be expected... More

The Red Mangrove Isabela Lodge is located right on the beach. You can listen to the waves crashing while enjoying meals and drinks on the patio. The staff at the hotel was very accommodating. Our rooms were clean and comfortable. I'm a picky eater, but found the food to be surprisingly good. We were there as part of a Red... More

The lodge was located on the beach. There were lounge chairs outside by the restaurant that you can sit and relax, you can hear the sound of the waves few meters away...what a perfect background sound to sleep. The room was average size, clean and has basic amenities. The bathroom is small but clean and toiletries were provided. There is... More

This place is very cool and the manager and his staff were incredibly nice and accommodating. We stayed at the Red Mangrove lodge(s) in March and the Isabela location was far better managed and customer focused then the Santa Cruz location. The hotel is right on the beach and you have beautiful views and sunsets to watch. There is not... More

In early March 2014, my wife and I were at the Red Mangrove on Santa Cruz and Isabela. Although other than the 'suite pequena' at Santa Cruz the room were generally sufficient but not exceedingly up-market. However what was commendable were the first class guides who were both helpful and knowledgeable. There were Duncan and Luis from the Red Mangrove.... More
