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.

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 :)

I visited this hotel with a large group of young people. The staff were brilliant and the facilities were great. There were areas for us to socialise and the whole place had a very relaxed feel. It is walking distance to the town and beach, both of which are beautiful. The man behind the desk was able to direct us... More

The rooms in this place are excellent. Really spacious and comfy beds! The location is great and the area is safe to walk around at night. The shower was good although we had an issue where the tootled overflowed and the water began to come Into the room after filling the bathroom floor. The reception staff were very helpful and...

Villamil is a tiny town with no paved streets, but access to a flamingo lagoon, volcanic crater, marine iguanas and a tortuga nursery. It is quite close to Tintoreras island, with blue-footed boobies, penguins, and tintorera sharks.
