We loved this hotel - basic, but with everything you could want! A beautiful view, right on the ocean, lovely staff, awesome breakfasts, and right off the main square. If you go out the back way, there is a small bakery and corner shop before you hit the restaurants. Out front is the ocean....:) I forgot my laptop there and... More

This was our favourite place we stayed out of all the hotels and b and bs in the Galapagos. The staff are all amazingly helpful and lovely, they do everything to ensure your trip is perfect. The rooms are beautifully well kept, and the views are exceptional ( we had room 3 with a sea view). The owners take real... More

We spent 5 days at this small property last june, and it was one of the highlights of our 19 days long trip to Galapagos. We found the galapagueños to be very friendly and helpful, but in la Casita we experienced an even warmer hospitality and what we felt a real wish to make you feel comfortable by Manuel, Tere,...

This place is not luxurious, but quaint, clean, has lovely hosts and location, location, location!! Just a block from main square, but literally on the whitest most beautiful beach you can imagine - we saw sea lions playing in the waves from our balcony. We walked on the beach every night and fell asleep to the sound of the waves.... More

Clean and tidy rooms with beach views and very friendly family owners. Breakfast is good and is enjoyed on the top floor with a stunning view of the ocean and beach. Listening to the waves crashing on the beach at night is the perfect way to finish your day as you drift into a deep sleep. The family that run... More

When we arrived on the island we actually had a reservation at the hotel connected to Bar de Beto, but he was kind enough to advise us that it might get loud, and let us cancel our reservation with no issues (it was New Year's eve). Very honorable on his part. Coming back to Casita de la Playa. I started... More

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.
