I loved being a guest at The Albemarle Hotel! Jessica, the hotel manager was so helpful. From booking us taxis to tours and arranging any and every detail we needed, she did it. The hotel is also a superb location, right on the beach. Our room was spotless and the comforters were cozy. Air conditioning in the Galapagos heat is... More

I island hopped in the Galapagos and did not go on a cruise. I stayed at Hotel Albermarle for 3 nights and I was very pleased. When I initially booked my hotel, Max offered to book our speed boat ticket from Santa Cruz, too. He booked them for us and emailed us a copy of the tickets and did not... More

Had read the reviews, especially the poor ones. Our tour company set this one up for us so we were wary. The first room the air conditioner didn't work, no tv which wasn't a big deal but, and there were no amenities in the room at all, like they had just put us into a room someone had just left....

Far from being a perfect place to stay, I do think that it's a good option, considering the place and the price. I had a bad experience with the availability of our room, but even so, I think that I would return to this hotel. The room was very nice, big and clean, the little pool was old and dirty... More

The location of the Abermarle is perfect, literally right on the beach. We had 2 ocean front rooms with an adjoining balcony and the views were from a postcard. You can literally step out the front door and be on the beach. Shops, rentals, restaurants are all around the corner. While we aren't very picky travelers, some other aspects of... More

I don't understand the poor reviews of this hotel - we had a great stay. It's a wonderful location, right beside the beach. We had a ground floor room, the view is probably better from the upper floor, but the ground floor has doors opening practically onto the beach. There were no ants, no noise (maybe the bar has moved,... More

We spent 3 nights at this hotel. The rooms with sea view are spectacular. For this reason deserves 5 stars. Left us perplexed and neglect service of staff, breakfast was basic and careless. Altogether a good solution if you don't have too many expectations. Marco

Our family stayed at Hotel Albemarle from 2 May - 6 May. We had two ocean-view rooms, with an adjoining balcony (fantastic view). The rooms were spacious and was kept clean on a daily basis. There's purified drinking water in each room and when you run out, they refill. The king bed wasn't too bad, but the pillows were super... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my 4 day stay at Albemarle. A beautiful hotel in a location that is as close to perfect as you could wish for! The view from the room was to die for, and falling out of bed on to the beach every morning was just amazing! It's impossible not to feel relaxed in this place, the hotel is... More

We stayed at the Albemarle Hotel from April 2nd to the 5th and we found it to be above our expectations. Upon arrival Max upgraded us from a poolside to an ocean view room. What a view it was!
