I stayed as part of a group from the UK whilst touring the Galapagos. In short the hotel is small (12 rooms) comfortable and very well run. Steven the manager speaks excellent English and nothing was too much trouble. He managed to put us in contact with an experienced local guide who co-ordinated an excellent afternoons snorkeling at Los Toneles... More

The hotel is very nice and the staff are very friendly. I like the atmosphere here like in a tropic island. The breakfasts weren't so variety, but very tasty: home made omelet, cheese, bred, fresh tropic fruit and fresh juice. The only cons: the staff didn't speak English well and the noice from the kitchen that started at 6am. The... More

The rooms are nicely decorated, comfortable beds, good air conditioning and clean. There are two open air lounges we hung out in to check our email, play cards and unwind. The breakfast included fresh fruits, bread, eggs, coffee, juice. One morning we also had the local plantain and cheese bolóns. Dinners were a very generous portion with a good variety... More

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.

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
