On our trip to some Galapagos Islands we spent two nights at this very pleasant Hotel by the sea on Isla Isabela, the beach is only a few metres away. The rooms are comfortable and very clean, the bathrooms are spacious and nice. Our room (with a balcony) was facing the seafront and it was (apart from some music from... More

Hotel Albemarle was by far our favorite hotel of the several we stayed at between the Islands. The location, to start with, is excellent. Right across the street from a gorgeous white sand beach with crystal clear water. Upon opening the door to our room for the first time we gasped. No, that is not an exaggeration. While simply decorated... More

The Albemarle has spacious rooms, many facing the beach, attentive service, delicious breakfast, and is walking distance to good restaurants and bars. Observe marine iguanas as well as sea lions at the beach in front of the hotel!

I highly recommend this hotel!!! I unfortunately sprained my ankle quite badly when travelling on Isabela Island and the staff at this hotel saved my trip. While I was recovering I was able to lie on a fluffly, comfortable bed with the doors open to the breathtaking beachfront view. When I went down to breakfast, the manager personally brought me...

We stayed two nights at Hotel Albemarle and throughly enjoyed ourselves. The rooms are clean and spacious and the staff most helpful. If is centrally located to the tours and restaurants. They are currently remodeling the (very) small outdoor patios on the front rooms on the first floor. I don't see these patios getting a lot of use as they... More

Our room was fine and clean, facing the beach. It was quiet at night; we thought there would be noises outside since pedestrians walk right by our room. The breakfast was ample but not the greatest. The staff performed well. I just wonder why hotels in Galapagos do not provide any table clock. Worth a visit.

High ceilings, tile floors, glassed shower, firm beds, quiet A/C, loved the "drying room" on top of the building to hang up wet clothes. Lovely small pool in inner atrium, free wi-fi in small hotel lobby which always has a breeze blowing through. Delicious fresh and healthy breakfast.
