I stayed here with my husband for three nights in March after already spending 21 days in the Galapagos. My son had been studying in Isabela with a college program and I went down to visit him and wait for the rest of my family to arrive during their spring break. I came across the beautiful Albemarle while on a... More

excellent hotel, very spacious rooms, TV/Cable, wireless, great bathroom with double sink and with everything you would need. All rooms have a view, french doors with a small balcony looking out on the white sandy beach, good snorkeling spot in the cove in front of the hotel. We loved Isabela, loved the town, great seafood. Forget Puerto Ayora (unless you... More

Our family of four chose to stay on Isabella Island rather than tour around the Galapagos by boat. It turned out to be a good decision for us, and this hotel turned out to be one of the highlights of the trip. It is even nicer than the pictures show, on a goreous white sand beach. Max was a wonderful... More

I thoroughly recommend Max's hotel, the Albemarle on the island of Isabela, Galapagos. Max said we were the longest staying customer since he opened (at 11 nights). I can understand this as most people visit Isabela for a short stay as part of an overall tour of the Galapagos Islands. We (my partner and 11 year old daughter) decided to... More

Isabela is a paradise and Albemarle is a gem that was totally unexpected in such a sleepy remote island. The hotel is small, run by a delightful young couple Max and Diana. Couldn't do enough for us and the quality of the suite we stayed in was superb. Clean, friendly, good food and comfy beds what more could you ask... More

Albemarle was our first choice, but they were booked. A lot of tours pass through there. And so we stayed at San Vicente....for one hour... before leaving and wandering around town in search of different accommodations. Luckily for us, Albemarle had a cancellation and we jumped right on it! Throughout our stay, we ran into several groups in our similar... More

We were travelling with a 3-yr-old, so having the personal touch of manager Max and his family was wonderful. Our little girls played together, or at least alongside each other. The food was the big surprise. Awesome! After 10 days on San Cristobal, my wife was particularly tired of the food. Chef Marco created very interesting meals, especially upon learning... More
