We actually got to stay here as the result of a reservation mix-up, and it turned something very stressful into a wonderful experience. We made reservations at another hotel, Cabanas de Tero Real, months and months in advance of our trip. When we arrived on Isabela we were informed that there had been a mix-up with our reservation and the... More

We cannot say enough about this hotel. The location cannot be beat; we spent so much time just swimming and playing on the beach. Manuel and his wife, the owners, are very warm and caring. They did our laundry (fee) and repaired my daughter's dress (sewed it). The rooms are basic/ simple, but comfortable. There were occasional leaks when it... More

The 4 of us stayed 3 nights at this hotel with a tour group comprised of 12 people. This is a small family-run hotel with about 15 rooms. The owners are very gracious and accommodating. There's a very nice 3rd floor patio where a daily breakfast is served to all guests. There's also a full-sized refrigerator, and glasses on the... More

The 2 owners are absolutely lovely and helpful, and very very nice. The... More

Absolutely beautiful little hotel right at the beach. We had a wonderful room with a stunning ocean view. Very cozy and clean. Good amenities such as snorkel equipment, beach towels, tea and coffee and a fridge to store your sunset drinks :) Yummie breakfast with yogurt, cereal, eggs, bread, jam, ham, cheese and freshly squeezed orange juice. Hotel staff were... More

Our family of 5 (2 parents, 3 young adult children) traveled to I. Isabela and stayed 2 nights here. We wished we had an extra night. This hotel is right on the beach and has beautiful views from the rooms. You can open your windows at night and hear the ocean and feel the breeze. There are outdoor patio sitting... More

This place has an awesome view of the beach. You can hear the waves lapping the powder white sand as you sleep. I do wish they would of had a safe in the room. This was the only hotel we stayed in without one. It was a clean hotel with Friendly staff.

My wife and I enjoyed two nights at La Casita de la Playa while we visited the Galapagos. The owner was very helpful and available, the room was wonderful, and the location on the beach was great. We would most definately stay here again if we are lucky enough to return to the Galapagos!
