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

This small hotel sits on the beach in Puerto Villamil on Isabella Island, Galapagos. It was a home away from home for three nights, but with a better view! The breakfast ladies put out a delicious spread every morning to ready us for our day's adventure whether snorkeling with penguins or hiking up the volcano. The rooms are small but... More

Booked by the travel agency, we could not have asked for more. We would come back to Isla Isabela just to stay at La Casita de la Playa. Here's why. LCdlP is right on the beach. The hammock on the small lawn, the nearby chairs and the second floor patio all offer comfort with a great view of the surf... More

This breezy clean hotel on the beach was great, with a beautiful top floor breakfast room surrounded by palm trees and an interesting, beautifully served variety of breakfasts. Though I was sick here for a day, the staff were exceptionally helpful, offering tea and whatever else was needed. We did yoga on a platform on the beach, and it was... More

location: The Casita de la Playa is a small and well maintained beach hotel in the best location on Puerto Villamil. The beach is 10 m away from the hotel, and most rooms have a look over the ocean. The small village with its hotels and restaurants is all close by and you can visit the turtle station and the... More

This is one of the best hotels on Isabela island - the location is unbeatable (literally right on the beach). The couple that own the place are wonderful and are there to help you with anything. The breakfast we enjoyed on their roof top patio (!!) was also the best from the entire trip. Can't recommend it more!

The rooms are really clean and nice and all the staff is always very kind. Also breakfasts were abundant and very good, with something different every morning, and you can... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in Casita de la Playa and our stay was incredible! The pictures really don't do it justice because its much more like paradise in real life.
