the best feature of the place - it's right on the beach, nothing is between you and ocean. The host is very friendly and caring. Hot water is in a limited supply (hot - cold {wait} - hot). Rooms have air conditioners but imho on a beach they are unnecessary

The place is basic but good enough if you are not looking for luxury. My room had two beds and a private bathroom. There is hot water and air conditioning in the room. They clean it every day and I have views to the beach. For me it could have a place for having breakfast looking to the sea instead... More

The building is right on the beach and has a big common balcony overseeing the ocean 180deg. The rooms and facilities are good to great, considering how remote this location is. The owner/manager genuinely cares about the visitor and helps to figure out what to do during the stay. He called tour operators for us, explained everything, chased down the... More

The location of The Dolphin House is excellent - directly on the beach and just a block from the center of town. Unfortunately, only a few of the rooms actually face the ocean. However, there is a large rooftop terrace for guest use, that while generally unfurnished - save for a few plastic chairs - provides stunning views. My ocean-view... More

I stayed in this hotel in august 2011 with 3 friends. We slept together in a room with private bathroom. The room was very neat and quite spacious. The bathroom was alright too. We didn't see a lot of visitors during our stay, neither did we see the owners a lot. But we stayed 4 nights and it was perfect.... More

I was lucky enough to travel with friends who were very familiar with Isla Isabela in the Galapagos. The Dolphin Hotel in Puerto Villamil is always their choice and with good reason - great owners and service staff; very clean and very affordable; and right on the beach. The hotel is located a little over a mile from ocean entry... More
