Galápagos beach paradise spot for younger travellers. Beto has spent 16 years turning this place into a rustic beach front bar and restaurant with nice rooms, some with spectacular sea views. Reasonably priced, great cocktails and good party music.

I stayed on Isabela Island for 4 days before heading out for a cruise. I booked Beto's bar by phone, after seeing it here on tripadvisor. I had read that the rooms facing the lagoon were not good, but the price was right, so I decided to chance it. My room faced the lagoon, had everything I needed, and was... More

I visited Isla Isabela on July. On my way there I met a fellow backpacker, who stayed at Beto's and he recommended to check this place out because of its location and price. I ended up staying in Beto's Beach Bar Hotel (not in the place Beto owns across the street). I had an unforgettable time there. My room had... More

Even a short stay at Beto's place will add colour to your time on the Galápagos Islands. During our stay we enjoyed a spacious room that was cleaned daily and had great beach front views. It's a place where everything doesn't have to be perfect - it just works, so well that we didn't want to give up our room... More

About a month ago, I traveled via boat from Santa Cruz to Isabela. By chance, I sat next to Beto. he explained to me he owned a beach bar on Isabela and we had great conversation. as the journey progressed, I grew afraid. This was the roughest boat ride I had ever taken and I had my 6 year old... More

My husband and I booked a room at Beto's Beach Bar Hotel and ended up staying at a place Beto owned across the street. When we went to check in, Beto asked us to pay for our stay up front, then escorted us to a room across the street. The room was filthy, had a broken towel rack, open wiring... More

Sitting on the terrace of Betos (tasty) Bar and overlooking the beach and sea in a very relaxing atmosphere is the icing on the cake called Galapagos or Isabela. Beto offers tasty rooms for very fair prices too. I felt vey comvortable in there. Clean, aircon, quiet. All in all an absolute enjoyable stay.

The rooms were basic, but the view on the third floor is outstanding- ask for this room with a balcony if it's available. The owners were great. This is a good choice that's reasonably priced! We would stay here again if we returned.

Bar de Beto is ahotel with a great restaurant and bar on Isabela Island. Beto is an excellent host and chef. We went here on Saturday night July 6th. FYI this restaurant serves dinner on limited nights and it is important to stop by to make a reservation and place your order early. Beto cooked up a large piece of... More

When I visited Isla Isabella most places to stay were full. There were three of us in the group and we were going to get a triple room however the owner said we could have two rooms for the same price ($20). Only one room had a hot shower and one morning there was no water in either room. We... More
