We were here for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The family that runs this hotel couldn't speak to much english however this didn't stop them from doing their very best to make us feel at home. The rooms were simple and clean however it was the location which is the main selling point. To be able to walk... More

The hotel is on a beautiful and quiet beach full of wildlife, especially marine iguanas and aquatic birds. During my stay I was lucky enough to swim with a couple of Galapagos penguins. If you are looking for a peaceful place to relax or are interested on wildlife photography and nature, I highly recommend this hotel. Moreover, the staff was... More

We loved staying at this cute little hotel. The owner was extremely kind and made sure we got everything we needed. The hotel is right along the beach, and is very clean. We were also greeted in the morning with delicious breakfast cooked by our new adopted mother. I would definitely come back in a heartbeat.

Our family - two teens, my parents, and husband and I - just returned from a fantastic four day stay at the La Casita de la Playa. Manuel and Teresa are gracious hosts, attentive to the comfort and care of their guests. Our rooms were comfortable, breakfasts were generous and delicious, hospitality was second to none. Manuel and Teresa helped... More

This was a fantastic place to stay! Every morning we woke up to delicious breakfasts made for us. The place is VERY clean, but not luxurious. If you are looking for a 5 star hotel, this is not it. It was, however, conveniently located, clean, accommodating and comfortable. It's located right on the gorgeous beach. You can sit out on... More

La Casita is the greatest place you can ever find, a bargain $$ but so much more, it's heaven on the beach, totally spiffy clean, rooms spacious, shower hot, views on the long long beach in front of Puerto Villamil are uninterrupted and all you have to do is cross little sand road to be on the beach. Breakfast prepared... More

This review is a little late, we stayed in April 2014. This was booked by a local friend from Puerto Ayora. It is a lovely little lodge. We had the bottom floor room at the front of the building so you literally felt like you could reach out and touch the ocean from your room (of course you couldn't). The... More

This hostel was right on the beach of a peaceful village with a lot of character. The owners and workers were superb, and made our stay much more enjoyable. Nothing was too much trouble, the rooms were spotlessly clean and well appointed and a huge breakfast was served in the open air dining space. They helped solve our credit squeeze... More

We stayed at La Casita de la Playa for a few nights during our Galapagos stay. The hotel is nice and clean with rooms overlooking the beautiful beach bay of Puerto Villamil. It's a nice and quiet location (though most things are in Villamil) and offered a beautiful breakfast with homepressed orange juice.

My first review, ever! My daughter (11yrs.) and I spent one month in the Galapagos islands. We originally planned to stay four nights here in April. I had to ask for all the staffs' names the night before we were leaving. They were the most sincere individuals I had ever met and wanted to send a personal thank you note... More
