We have spent two nights while our Galapagos Island hopping and it was one of the best places that we have stayed. 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 -...

Staff were super friendly and helpful, going out of their way to make our experience a memorable one. The location cannot be beat - literally across the street from the beach! The hotel itself appears to be newly constructed and is very modern. Rooms are spacious and bathrooms have all the modern amenities you need. Beds are comfy. Hotel has... More

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
