Special thanks to Caroline, who helped me find a pharmacy to get cold medication,spoke English, and was very helpful. I was traveling alone, and they made me feel very comfortable. Room was clean, modern, and spacious.

I was there for three nights, part of the touring group in February. Good location. Only minutes away from shopping and dining. There is a supermarket just around the corner and a cyber place just yards away. Yes you will need it if you need net access. The wifi connection in the hotel is very poor. Rooms are large and...

I agree with the reviews below. Caroline was the manager when I visited there 3 weeks ago. I do not speak spanish, so clearly she was a great resource. I could not have luckier, because I asked Ecuatravel to arrange a five day trip to the Galapagos. We had activities every morning and afternoon, with a break about noon. There... More

Our family stayed at Hotel San Vicente over the New Year's holiday. The staff picked us up from the port in an open air jeep and stopped at a few hotels to drop off the other guest. We choose to do our "own" thing on the island with no tours booked- biking to the volcano, scuba diving, and hiking. The... More

This hotel was part of a prearranged package deal for me. A jeep taxi picked up all of us arrivals from the boat dock and dropped us off at the various hotels in Puerto Villamil. San Vicente was not on the water but the town is so small it was easy walking everywhere & to the beach. My room was... More

Stayed here for 3 nights as part of a Galapagos tour. The tap water was salty, but then everywhere else on the islands is too. Room was clean and comfy. Breakfast was the best of the tour, high quality and fresh. Caroline the manager looked after us well and managed to come snorkelling with us on her break.

OK or even better is the size of the room, spacious and in-room locked drawers - which I did use with no problems. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was diversified and better than some. The not again is the wifi never worked, drinking water provided was ?, sheets not changed on a four night stay, and by booking the one time... More

This hotel was the worst hotel we stayed in while we were in Galapagos. If you're not part of a tour that goes through here and organizes their activities from this place, then you might not have a good time. The rooms are smelly, the water is salty, the drinkable water they give you is dusty, the service is very... More

Thanks to Caroline and the staff for making our Galapagos experience a memorable one, the hotel was clean and comfy in a good location, the staff were always willing to go above and beyond. The tours organised were great and the guides they use have a wealth of knowledge. Defiantly recommend :)

We stayed in this cosy hotel for three days during our roundtrip in Ecuador. The room was very nice, with a kingsize bed, perfect for a couple. The staff was very friendly and helpful with organizing our tour to volcano Sierra Negra and snorkeling. in great nature! The atmosphere on Isabela is so special - people living side by side...
