Such a great beachfront location. This is a beautiful, classy and fun hotel. Was the perfect stay for my boyfriend and myself, in the backdrop of the incredible Galapagos Islands (we didn't want to leave!!) The mini buffet breakfast was delicious and the staff were so friendly, plus there is a lovely terrace. We felt very at home. Thanks to... More

Positive: - spacious room - clean and spacious bathroom - big bed - close to the beach, literally across the street - ideal for beach walks to see Iguanas, sea lions - beach towels available for free -...

There are a few hotels in Puerto Villamil. I got the sense this was one of the best in terms of location to center of town & the beach. Stayed 3 nights--room was spacious & comfortable with good working A/C & wifi. Breakfast was good and staff were very helpful and welcoming. The beach is in front of the hotel... More

In March, 2015, I stayed at this hotel with my 2.5 year-old child. Room 104, beach front. On March 20, 2015, a man broke into our room in the middle of the night through the beach side doors. It was a horror. Security camera video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=it88Ud7EVnc An excerpt of the security video that shows the owner Maxwell John Murray's wife... More

Everything was just perfect! The staff was wonderful, nice and helpful! The hotel manager even walked us to the bank and helped us when we were having issues. The room was big, clean and amazing! Huge comfortable bed and nice pillows. Me and my mom had a room next to a football field, I have seen a few reviews were... More

Stayed two nights while exploring the island. Hotel offers only breakfast, no lunch, nor dinner. Clean rooms with view over the beach, literally across the road. Could watch pelicans, boobies and frigate birds dive into the ocean, and by strolling down to the beach observe penguins and sea lions.

Hotel Albemarle was one of the nicest places we stayed during our trip to the Galapagos. The rooms were spacious, the bathroom amenities were modern and it was hard to beat our 2nd floor balcony overlooking the ocean. Great little spot with a helpful staff.

A small , friendly hotel right on the beach on the very laid back Island of Isabella in Galápagos. Swimming with sea lions and ugly iguanas wandering along the sand were part of the magic. A few palms trees, glorious sunsets and friendly staff . What else could you want.?

The room was wonderful. The location is amazing. But the staff at Albemarle was the best. They greeted me when I arrived with a watermelon smoothie, and helped me confirm my day trip reservations including my transportation when I left.
