Stayed here for 6 nights in February, had the best room No 6. The staff are so helpful, friendly and efficient. They all seem really happy to work there. The hotel is clean and well run. The lady in the kitchen serves beautifully presented food at lightening speed from a very clean kitchen. All our trips were organised by the... More

This a very nice small hotel with attentive staff providing good service and good food. We stayed with a group and enjoyed the hospitality of manager, Alberto, who worked hard to ensure everything ran smoothly for us. The staff washed a bag of laundry for us, and although there had been some technical problem with the washer, they still managed... More

Dear Guests: Thank you very much! For us it is a great pleasure to receive these comments. Fortunately as you said our location is privileged a little apart from the town but close to the pier, the beach and the peace of the island. I am glad you enjoyed the friendliness of our staff and the delicious fruits that provides... More

Very nice place. Five minutes walk from harbour (probably the most beautiful harbour I have ever seen) and around ten minutes walk from town. Wooden rooms. Clean. Ensure you do not get a room near the main bar/ breakfast area as otherwise you will be woken up by people coming back late at night or the ladies cooking breakfast early... More

We stayed with a group of 16 persons 2 nights in this wooden pension. It is about 300 m from the harbour, so we walked with our Luggage over the dirtroad to this place. The rooms are spacious and authentic, though the sanitary stuff needs some renovation. They serve good breakfasts and dinners. It is a nice place to spend... More

We visited the Wooden House in the middle of a two-week tour and it gave us a great opportunity to relax in more comfort than in some of our other stops. We loved the wooden panelling and high ceiling in our room & the shower was strong and warm too. The laundry service was very welcome and probably cut our... More

The Wooden House Lodge is a beautiful place to stay at Isabella Island. Especially off season you can get a very good deal on the expensive Galapagos Islands. Also a reason to pick this place is that it is very close to the harbour, nice if you have to catch the morning speed boat back to Santa Cruz, at 6.00... More

My husband and I went to Galapagos and it has been one of our best trips so far. We booked an island hopping package with The Wooden House Lodge for 5 days 4 nights. The first night we stayed in Santa Cruz and the rest of the nights in Isabella. It was the best decision we made for this trip.... More

Overall this was a very nice place to stay. The staff at the Wooden House was great. They were extremely responsive to any issues we had and went out of their way to organize trips and tours for us. Also, because they operate their own tour company they gave us discounts and picked us up from the hotel for our... More

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights at the Wooden House on Isabela island in the Galapagos. It was a fantastic experience, beautiful rooms with spectacular wood (of course!) with exceptionally comfortable beds. The daily service was exceptional as well and we never had an issue or complaint. Additionally, we ate 3 dinners there at the hotel and the... More
