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.

Room 101 is an afterthought to an otherwise nice hotel. It is a dungeon that instead of water torture has an old air conditioner that will crank up every 30 minutes or so destroying any hope of a night's sleep. The only view is from a little window that looks right onto the breakfast table of a morning guest. One... More

Stayed here 3 nights in september. The staff must be specially commended for helpfulness. A few of our party fell seriously sick from food posioning, and the young lady at the front desk dropped everything to walk them to the hospital. She then went and checked on them regularly, and even brought home made chicken soup ! As for the... More

The hotel is not quite as luxurious as the website photos might appear, but still a wonderful place to stay. And if I had it to do over again, I would still stay there. The location is on the beach, right behind the main street and plaza in town (the town is not very big. Only 2000 people). None of... More
