We were there during the holiday season and all the rooms were full. The hotel is also a base for the Sierra negre volcano tour and snorkeling tours. Given the high tourist traffic, it would seem like there would be an effort to improve the breakfasts which were awful, the WiFi which never worked the entire three days (they kept... More

This hotel is run down, located among demolished or other building sites, and has nothing attractive to describe itself. The room was adequate, and was well maintained. But the bathroom was cramped, and was not re-stocked even the limited items there when we arrived. The towels were old and scratchy. The Internet service was non-existent and the food was either...

Let me preface this by saying we got an exceptionally good room with AC on the 3rd floor, and we were extremely lucky because we saw many rooms were extremely tiny. However there are some serious cons I'll address first. The hotel is located off the Main Street (5 min walk about) and female family remembers reported lots of street... More

You rarely see a hotel that suits its surroundings so perfectly. Most of the public areas are half outside, and the whole place is almost like a kind of treehouse arrangement. There is a nice big courtyard with trees and canopies to sit in the evenings, and a jacuzzi pool that can be used if you ask in advance. Really... More

This is my favorite hotel on Isabela! The rooms are super clean, there is hot water and A/C and breakfast is included in the price! The staff was very helpful and accommodating and helped us arrange taxis and trips around the island. Will DEFINITELY be back!

Friendly service, nice patio/garden with a jacuzzi and spacious rooms. All transportation, excursions and the hotel belong to the Grupo San Vicente. Organization was a bit messy sometimes. Quality of the guides also varied. When not all excursions met our expectations, we were allowed to change two, which was nice. Food quality was average, partly because of the lack of... More

I stayed here for four days and three nights. The hotel has a superb layout and will make you want to relax as much as you don't want to because of all that you've left at home. The staff are super friendly, especially Caroline. She's hilarious! The food for lunch and dinner is fantastic and rather impressive. I love their... More

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
