I stayed with 4 friends last week for about 3 days. The staff was wonderful (friendly & helpful & most of our tour guides were knowledgeable), the food was pretty good (especially the breakfast buffet) and the rooms were pretty clean with enough space. A good home base for our couple of days on Isabela where we could walk 4... More

Stayed as part of a tour. Relaxed, laid back, well run. All the necessities provided including hot water, clean linen, air conditoning, windows that open. Breakfast basic , service erratic - but okay. WiFi a bit wonky.

We were very happy with our stay here. We had a king sized bed and clean room. Most of the meals were great with the exception of one. Great location for walking around the town and down to the water.

Listen people, this is Galapagos . You are in the middle of nowhere! Roosters are a part of the package as are dogs roaming. Don't go to remote places if you can't enjoy the culture and the uniqueness of the locale. Hotel San Vicente is exactly what we wanted. It is basic, but very comfortable and clean. The staff are...

Great little spot on Isabela Island. Rooms are clean and larger than average (mine was massive)! The showers are great, wifi is reliable, aircon works and the staff.....are fab! Caroline (an English lady) is super helpful and makes you feel very comfortable throughout the whole stay. She's always happy to offer suggestions to get the most out of your time... More

My partner and I stayed here as part of our G adventures tour which was part of our backpacking trip. We were used to staying in backpackers so this accommodation was good for us with a private room and bathroom, a large double bed plus two singles. The room was generally clean but very noisy thanks to the neighbouring rooster... More

Hotel has everything you need: Hot water, wifi downstairs, comfortable d clean rooms and good activity advice. Even if you don't stay there, eat there! We had a couple dinners and lunches which were unbelievable (and very reasonable - $8 for 3 courses) It's about a 5-10 minute walk from the main bar and restaurant area. Although there is a... More

12/2013 -- stayed at San Vincente as part of Intrepid Galapagos tour. The hotel is located just off the center of town and a 10 minute walk to the port on Isabella Island. Rooms simple and clean. Air conditioner units in each room worked very well to take humidity out of the air (Dec is wet season in Galapagos). Buffet... More

People seem to forget that the Galápagos Islands, and particularly Isabella are a remote area and part of a developing country. Considering those restriction this hotel is perfectly adequate. The room was clean, the shower was hot, the air conditioner worked and they provided fresh drinking water in the rooms. We did not notice the rooster, but then we had... More
